RCIA Blogs

posted by awelborn

Last year, I believe, there were a number of bloggers who were in the process of becoming Catholic at Easter. This year, there may be some, but I’ve not searched them out – and if you’re out there – God bless you!

I’ve been alerted to a new blog by someone who’s beginning RCIA with an eye to Easter 2005! So go check it out and say hello.

God Bless Eutychus Fell and her blog. I’m glad there was somebody teaching her class who was knowledgeble enough to give her a better explaination of the use of incense than her pastor. (The pastor said that incense had been used to cover up people’s body odor back in the old days.)

I’m not so sure it was the pastor or even a priest that was present at that particular session.
Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t. My point is that it was unclear.
Here’s the quote from the blog:
One priest was heard to say that the incense covered the body odors of the time.

You’re correct Meggan. I asked about incense and then we went around
the room, whith each person saying what they knew about it. One of
the RCIA directors said that she had asked her past priest and he had
told her about the body odor (with a straight face). Anyway, once it
got around to the lead RCIA director, she said things about including
all our senses and how the incense wafts up like prayers and perhaps
we could consider the whole spirit, etc.
Thanks for reading. :)

There is nothing I shall want
A couple of weeks ago, a memorial Mass for Michael was held here in Birmingham at the Cathedral. The bishop presided and offered a very nice, even charming homily in which he first focused on the Scripture readings of the day, and then turned to Michael, whom he remembered, among other things, as on

Revolutionary Road - Is it just me?
Why am I the only person I know..or even "know" in the Internet sense of "knowing"  - who didn't hate it? I didn't love it, either. There was a lot wrong with it. Weak characterization. Miscasting. Anvil-wielding mentally ill prophets.But here's the thing.Whether or not Yates' original novel in

I don't know about you, but one of effects of childbirth on me was a compulsion to spill the details.
