Oh, I see, your friend is part of the Magisterium. I didn't know that. Silly me, I thought the Church taught that God created the heavens and the earth and all that they contain. But according to you the Church teaches what your friend says it does. Well, for goodness' sake, who knew???
Ooops, wait a minute. I see right in the very article that Your Friend passed on, and which contains an Imprimatur!, that....all creation must be ascribed to God.
Well, of course it must, as that is stated in Genesis and what the Church teaches. Not what our friends tell us she teaches.
sarcasm. Fine .

I'm showing you what was,said to be your teaching ...ONCLUDING WE MAY BE DECENDED FROM OTHER BIOLOGICAL FORMS,OF BEINGS .

FROM what I read today ..John Paul seemed nit to believe this

Just saying ..You sway with the winds of change ..

I believe my friend in eat us taught ..I believe John Paul did nit seem convinced about evolution

I did,NOT SAY GOD DID NOT CREATE,OUR IMAGINARY ancestors .

Try to follow the,POINT of the discussion ..please,

NOT directed to you by the way

I believe God created ADAM AND EVE.AS,IT SAYS,IN SCRIPTURE ....not waiting for them to evolve from anything ....AS YOUR CHURCH evidently
..more,tradition that trumps scripture ....

You guys,seem to worship whatever your Church tells you ..believe whatever changes they make ...convoluted as their explanations are .

Limbo..oh no now no LIMBO ..the poor babies released ???On the words of the CHURCH .. like God waited for the RCC to take them to heaven . Till.the POPE decided

Michael says.....Thats just you! Growing numbers of OTHER roman catholics have a different opinion... Recent surveys indicate a fast growing number of roman catholics believe woman should be allowed to become clergy. MOST roman catholics polled by Pew Research Centre indicate Celebacy should be optional for current priests.
Do you honestly believe God would descriminate against women? If the 12 apostles all had beards and long hair should all priests have beards and long hair because the 12 apostles did?(lol)
Times are changing in the western world. Catholicism is growing quickly in poor uneducated continents such as Africa/Asia and parts of South America as western world catholicism dwindles.

The very first roman catholic priest UNION (association) in america. The nearly 1,000 priests and growing want more say in their diocese and not be leashed by their bishops, and they support the nuns in america that the vatican leaders are trying to silence.
www.uscatholicpriests.org http://romancatholicwomenpries ts.org/ordained.htm
The catholic church today is fractured. Millions of divorced catholics have partners that the church says is adultery. Most roman catholics have used or use forms of birth control the church says is sinful. The bishops in america claim that only about 1 in 4 roman catholics today in america attend mandatory sunday mass.
Does that sound like a church with everyone following the rules?
I think not.
The Bible has the answer. Here it is..........

<quoted text>Does a Eucharist Minister have to go to confession before handing out the communion to the people? Also,what does someone have to do to become a Eucharist Minister? I understand that women are allowed to be Eusharist Ministers. What sort of studies and how long does it take to become one.. Thank you
We do go to confession.[I go often after been on this forum] Lord have Mercy. We have classes, dear husband and me have been serving for 12 years. We have over 200 Eucharist Minister, we have a schedule that alternates Sundays and Saturday Masses.
We both went to RCIA [Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults] just to renew our teachings, and it took a regular school year.
A side from my other ministries I plan on helping out in that class, its for converts and other Catholics that need Sacraments.

Thanks for asking.
I must run now, on my way to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, it takes place first Monday of every month in our Church.

Nice to have you back KayMarie after your (extended) illness! Hope your doing well in your recovery, as I know that your faith in Jesus Christ is keeping you "uplifted every day"!!
The official teaching of the Catholic Church is the belief in "Sola Verbum Dei" (the Word of God alone) This Word comes from Christ and the Apostles through "both" the written and the oral (unwritten) tradition (2 Thess 2:15) which has been entrusted to the Church that Jesus builds upon the rock of Peter (Matt 16:18,19 and I Tim 3:15 which is the ineffable wisdom of God that is made known through His Church (Eph. 3:9-10.....Continual healing to you KayMarie and Gods Blessing to you and your family!!!
Very nice, Hojo. This has been explained to Kay many, many times by myself and others. We've also given her links to read, but she refuses to look at them. Now she says she doesn't know what the Church teaches on this matter. I wonder how that could be? Really, what can one say after this all too common occurrence on this board?
Take care!

From your link.
Pay ATTENTION Rose....
"Real History
The argument is that all of this is real history, it is simply ordered topically rather than chronologically, and the ancient audience of Genesis, it is argued, would have understood it as such.
Even if Genesis 1 records God’s work in a topical fashion, it still records God’s work—things God really did.
The Catechism explains that "Scripture presents the work of the
Creator symbolically as a succession of six days of divine ‘work,’
concluded by the ‘rest’ of the seventh day" (CCC 337), but
"nothing exists
that does not owe
its existence
to God the
Creator.
The world
began when God’s
word drew it out of
nothingness;
all existent beings,
all of nature,
and all human history is rooted in this primordial event,
the very genesis by which the world was constituted and time begun" (CCC 338).
It is impossible to dismiss the events of Genesis 1 as a mere legend. They are accounts of real history, even if they are told in a style of historical writing that Westerners do not typically use."
Colossian 1:16, "For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him."

Who is the "him" mentioned in this verse?

Actually, no it isn't, Kay. Not one Catholic here is of the "opinion" that Tradition trumps Scripture. Not sure why you want to mislead folks by saying something like that.
If you'd like, we can talk about the anti-biblical, anti-Christian doctrine of sola scriptura another time.
Finally, a Catholic response that we can use.

Where does "God" specifically state which texts are "of His inspiration" and which are not?

How honest are you Regina?

That's the way it is and will always be.
Michael, you're back, is the honeymoon over with June? LOL
Then why don't you believe in all of what Jesus taught, if "he makes the rules"?

You are such a hypocrite Star.

You are only on this thread to upset others who are Catholic, nothing more. You are a friendless old lady who has nothing better to do . You *born again* no, not yet, but soon in the future. You adore Blessed Pope John Paul II, he is praying for your soul,and several others are too, because he and others knows how mean you can get.

Not directed at me, but here is my 2 cents.
FYI, its the protestant churches that are blessing same sex marriages, this is why we are getting so many converts.
The Anglicans have converted for this reason. The Episcopalians’ Bishop is openly gay and living with his partner, after divorcing his wife. They bless same sex marriages.
WE DO NOT.
The church you mention on above must NOT be Catholic under the direction of our Pope. It is a
sin to live together outside of marriage. We allow
all sinners that want to follow JESUS' teachings
only.
“BISHOP Gene Robinson, He and his husband, Mark, will be leaving the state where Robinson has lived and worked since 1975 for Washington, D.C. There, Robinson will be working with the Center for American Progress, a progressive research and policy organization, on issues of faith and gay rights.”

Maybe you should read more of what Pope Francis is speakign about....

Yeah - he is talking about people like you here.....

"“Leaders of the Church have often been Narcissus, flattered and sickeningly excited by their courtiers. The court is the leprosy of the papacy,” he said."

"“It is Vatican-centric,” he said.“It sees and looks after the interests of the Vatican, which are still, for the most part, temporal interests. This Vatican-centric view neglects the world around us. I do not share this view and I'll do everything I can to change it.”"
http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/01...

You fit well in the "Old School" of Catholicism.....because you love to hate others - your post solidifies that aspect of your life with this:
"They bless same sex marriages.
WE DO NOT."

Take your hatred elsewhere.

Live in love and honesty - you'll be a better person for it.

Better yet - maybe you should begin to understand the progression of the Pope - and help him make this change occur.

Peace to All:
I think the perception amongst most non-Catholics, is that Catholics depend upon Tradition. Perhaps this is mainly due to the rituals, I don't know....
The problem with many Catholics is that they partake in the rituals without understanding the Tradition.
For most born-again Catholics(those who understand) have at their access a plethora of material which are held in common, and most of these are found along the spiritual paths that take them to Jesus.
Most born-again non-Catholics use as the only source for their spiritual path, the Bible to take them to Jesus.
In the end, I think the end is the same, to keep one's ears, eyes, and mind open, follow the Holy Spirit, and find Jesus.
