<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
Since I haven't recently been to a Catholic service, I wonder if they use gloves when handling these wafers, like all other food handling service are required to do?

You are dense.

"GOD HATES SIN."

If "He" does, then why does "He" still allow it to occur?

You are just parroting "Paul" again, huh?

Do you ever take the time to understand what you post before you post it?

Why don't you believe Jesus?

You should try to understand your emotions and how they are not relevant to belief.

But you seem to have a hard time separating the two.

Why?

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
Sigh
I have to agree with Anthony, you're a bigot, Rose. This is one of the most untruthful, bigoted posts I've seen here...and there are plenty to choose from. May God have mercy on your soul.

Let's say a person has a will. Just before they die they re-do the will and make changes. What will is valid?

Galatians 1:11-12, 11 "For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man’s gospel. 12 For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

Who revealed the gospel to Paul? Jesus Himself.

who="Husker Du" What a hate filled thing to say. You really don't understand and this is why I doubt you have ever been Catholic, sorry rosie ole girl, but you just proved my point. 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.

Shame on you. This person's words prove that she is sincere. She has found that God loves her, and, amazingly, she has not been critical of Catholics. She doesn't deserve to be scolded like this.

One more thing

I apologize for seeming to be bigoted .....I'm not

Just really disappointed in things I've learned
From some of he Catholics here

And then researched ...

SOME THINGS you believe like evolution ..I don't

Your FORMER belief in limbo until your CHURCH changed it ..I cannot see how you once adults believed it .

I did as a kid ...literally

That's,what I meant..if the RCC says his is TRYE you believe it ..tradition.

AND NOT TALKING ABOUT OUR SAVIOUR ...we all believe that .

I mean what has changed ..But you all say nothing ee r changes on some things .

So you have to say I was never a Catholics

I respect John Paul for being honest .

But at least a few think he did not mean what he clearly said on a lot of things

It's confusingly disappointing ....And saddening ..

You DON'T get that

There are a lot of things to love about your Church ...

Including the Catholics I know personally and my
family

I really DOn't care anymore if you believe I grew up Catholic ..

I did..But I don't ..

Oh and really...Well never mind .

Keep your opinions ...And insults .

Very lovely

Kay thanks,

Till I came here I honestly thought it was just rituals,
That divided believers of both sides,.

I visit the Catokuc church to pray at times,..TO GOD .

MY family is,Catholic ..

Well my last post says it . The attitude ...And the differences in belief are just really disappointing ..

There is,so much more live shown here ..by CHRISTIANS
Even if we have little differences ..I have seen them put aside in the
Interest of peace ...with Jesus,as our example .

It's,sad it's not universal ..all I can say .

It's,one thing to have differences ...another to personally insult

GOD BLESS both of you

excuse me? Rose is not friendless. She has many friends and I will say Nick and I are proud to be a friend to her.We differ on faith but we respect each other as a person.You see,respect is a two way street.If you want it, you got to give it....leave out the personal attacks to start with.

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!!!
----------
Nice post, hojo. Thank you.
Jesus certainly is keeping me. Did you know that 'victory' is part of the meaning of the word 'salvation' in Hebrew, and the Hebrew word for salvation is Yeshua (Jesus in English)?
We are not opposed to oral teachings...it is just that they must agree with the written Word. I have approximately 5,000 books, and there is much 'good' in them. But as you know, many people write books that are opposed to the Truth.
KayMarie
Thanks KayMarie!....Just to expand on the "oral teachings/written word" controversy, in 2 Thess 2:15 Paul commands the faithful to obey tradition, whether it is oral or written (he never says written alone and never repeals this command anywhere in Scripture. In addition, "nowhere" in the bible does it say that oral tradition MUST be faithful to Holy (written) Scripture. This is because Scripture IS TRADITION!!!!!!!! As we see in 2 Thess 2:15 Tradition is "not limited" to (only) what is written. It also includes the oral teachings of the Apostles which were proclaimed in the Early Churches beginning at Antioch, Ephesius, Galatia, Thessalonica, Corinth, etc. 350 years before the bible was written in 397AD. Hope this clarifies the Catholic Churches position.
God Bless!!

Clay, Herme, Hojo and ReginaM are actually arguing, and know not that they are, that the Catholics are following the Jewish traditionary law...ordinance!!!!!!

Halakhah: Jewish Law
The root of the Hebrew term used to refer to Jewish law, halakhah, means "go" or "walk." Halakhah, then, is the "way" a Jew is directed to behave in every aspect of life, encompassing civil, criminal, and religious law.

The foundation of Judaism is the Torah (the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, sometimes referred to as “the Five Books of Moses”).

"Torah" means "instruction" or "teaching," and like all teaching it requires interpretation and application. Jewish tradition teaches that Moses received the Torah from God at Mount Sinai. The Torah is replete with instructions, directives, statutes, laws, and rules. Most are directed to the Israelites, some to all humanity.

Anybody ever know a Catholic that behaved as a Jew in every aspect of life, encompassing civil, criminal, and religious law...per the Torah????
