I listened to Patrick Madrid‘s Open Line radio show this week! One caller asked why we ask non-Catholics not to receive the Eucharist at Catholic Mass.
I have always wondered; I know Protestants see the consecrated host as a symbol, even though they’re standing in a room full of Catholics who know it to have gone through transubstantiation. If they’re going to think it’s a symbol anyway, then they’ve missed the point to begin with. Mr. Madrid, as he has on so many occasions before, answered my question: 1 Corinthians 11:23-34.
This is cheating, but I’m tagging back to an earlier post I had this week about boys and girls. It goes out to teenage and college aged students, especially.
My work had its office “Holiday Open House” this week, which was a lot of fun! I haven’t gotten to see my co-workers in months (virtual office), so it was wonderful to see them again! It reminded me how fortunate I am work with such good, fun, honest people. I have the best boss in the world and a super support system of co-workers.
Prayers go out to one co-worker who is moving on to do mission work! See, I told you I work with good people.
Visit Billy Atwell’s site for an interesting look at conspiracy theories about the Catholic Church and his hope for a new movie coming out, “The Rite.” This is one impressive Catholic blogger and speaker. If you’re wavering in your faith or you can appreciate a good testimony, he has some videos posted here.
Last week I said I wanted to see a concert soon and tomorrow I make that dream come true! If anyone is in RVA, Carbon Leaf is playing at the National. Those of you who are not Richmonders, check them out. They are irishy, rocky, and folky.
