I was chatting with two nuns the other day and asked what they thought of the music in our liturgies. One of them was a specialist in liturgical music and was rather adamant that we won't be going back to traditional music or even chant and that the mix of contemporary music was here to stay. And she was quite certain that the Tridentine Mass was just a fad. Kinda wrecked my day...
Is that the old Latin Mass??

May be weird but I liked it..had half the words memorized ...

Non-Catholics are denied the Eucharist as they don't believe in it. It's a sin to profane the Eucharist and for one to receive it unworthily.

I'm not denying a thing, but I'm not throwing mud at the wall as you are either.
I already cited where the report affirms that the inmates had to work hard, were there against their wishes, that the nuns were strict and ran the place accordingly.
None of the witnesses interviewed claim to have been sexually abused nor beaten. They uniformly state that they had to work very hard and that the nuns were stern taskmasters and verbally cruel at times.
The facilities DID pass state inspection in accord with contemporary factory standards.
Laundries were a hard place to be, no matter who you were. It was hard work. No question.
The government is paying out as the report indicates that they were culpable for committing many of the girls to the laundries.
You forgot to mention the children that were taken away from their mothers. The word 'abuse' doesn't do it justice,mental torture would would be more appropriate description.
It's funny how the catholic church sees itself as a bastion of morality,strange indeed for an institute that doesn't have any.

I didn't mention it as I haven't seen it anywhere but in an allegation from the "campaigner". I didn't see it in the report, but that doesn't mean it's not there. I just didn't see it.

Recall that they were running asylums for "wayward girls".

Asylums are not often mistaken for amusement parks.

You know as well as me, if we Catholics leave, your fellow fundies will turn their sights on you. They do not consider you a Christian, in case you haven't figured that out.

It is a controverted question whether the bishops hold their jurisdiction directly from God or from the sovereign pontiff. The latter opinion, however, is almost generally admitted at the present day, for it is more in conformity with the monarchical constitution of the Church, which seems to demand that there should be no power in the Church not emanating immediately from the sovereign pontiff. Authors who hold the contrary opinion say that it is during the episcopal consecration that bishops receive from God their power of jurisdiction. But habitually before their consecration the bishops have already all powers of jurisdiction over their dioceses (Bargilliat, I, 442-445).

This belief has changed. The Bishops hold their jurisdiction directly from God. The old belief was not Dogma.

I already endured a religious affliction for most of my life, and I don't want a repeat "performance."

It cannot be both.

Matthew 26:26, "Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; THIS IS MY BODY."

Mark 14:11, "And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, "Take; THIS IS MY BODY."

Luke 22:19, "And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, "THIS IS MY BODY, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me."

I Corinthians 11:23-24, 23 "For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "THIS IS MY BODY which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me."

Let me add to your 1Corinthians verses: "Whoever therefore, eats the bread and drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, is guilty of sinning against the Body and Blood of the Lord"
It seems Paul was fooled too. He thought it was the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Glad you born agains showed up to straighten Paul out.
It appeared you needed help locating Scripture. Here you go.

I Corinthians 11:26, "For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. 27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord."

Now, moving on. Cly, for once in your life can you answer the questions. Here they are one more time......

Jesus held up BREAD and said THIS IS MY BODY.

1. Was Jesus declaring His body was made of bread?

2. Or, the other side of the coin would be Jesus was lying to the disciples because He did not hold up His body, He held up a piece of bread, and declared it to be His LITERAL body?

Which is it? It cannot be both.

Anthony lied...his words: He uses the Greek word "to gnaw, to chew meat" His flesh.

The truth is: trogo: probably strengthened from a collateral form of the base of 5134 and 5147 through the idea of corrosion or wear; or perhaps rather of a base of 5167 and 5149 through the idea of a craunching sound; to gnaw or chew, i.e.(generally) to eat:--eat.

"Eat" is a definition of "trogo". The Greek word for "eat" is "phago", and it means to eat (literally or figuratively):--eat, meat.

Catholics read the definitions in the literal sense...which makes them cannibals...

I relate to the story about the Eskimo that asked a priest, if he had never heard of Jesus would he still be condemned to hell. When the priest answered "NO," the Eskimo then asked "Well then why did you tell me about Jesus."

to believe u leave christ wen u stop participating in the eucharist is crazy, if you believe in god and jesus christ he will always be with u.. in ur prayers, in ur heart, in ur motives, in your kindness, and in ur thoughts. Recieiving the eucharist is to demonstrate that physically with others in a tradition past down since the first breaking of bread
You don't receive Jesus physically in the Eucharist once you leave the faith, so, no, it's not crazy. You do in fact leave Him, and I was wondering how anyone could possibly do that? Your description above is not what was said by Christ in John 6.

Judging from the icons she gives you, I guess she doesn't like your posts! She does the same thing to all of mine, Hojo's and Dust Storm's. She's afraid of Anthony, lol. Even if we post Scripture, she doesn't like that either...gee, I wonder why, lol!
Maybe if we throw holy water on the screen she'll melt away.
Okay, get ready for it....

Anthony didn't lie.

He indicated where both terms were used and assigned them their proper meaning.

Are you now resorting to simply spamming false information out to the board?

Go look up the Greek word for "clown".
