Featured Term (selected at random:
A monstrance, a metal vessel usually gold- or silver-plated with a transparent section in which the Sacred Host is placed in its lunette when exposed for adoration or carried in procession. It varies in shape and ornamentation, popular models being tower-shaped or round; a metal circlet surrounded with rays or bars resting on a stem rising from a heavy base, many ornamented with jewels. The ostensorium in the Cathedral of Toledo took more than a hundred years to make and is reputed to be of gold brought by Columbus from America.

Is there a compilation of all these links? Or better yet, a file with all the entries?
Some are on my FR homepage. But not all of them. StraightVermonter linked them for a time, but they are no longer on his FR homepage.
Thanks, I had no idea you had saved them. Appreciate it greatly, since I try to search for duplicates.
This morning I was informed by the RM that I, as a Catholic, was no longer allowed to post on any thread that had "'Prod' Caucus." It is to be for Protestants only, now off limits to us Catholics for posting.
Does anyone know WHY this has happened?
Our priest this morning was talking about the discrimination that Catholics face. It's subtle now, not the way it used to be in days gone by.
I'll have to tell him of the "Prod Caucus" that is now off limits to us Catholics.
If they mention Catholic on that thread, we can ask for the Caucus to be removed.
I have always have liked the way you thought! :o)
