That's wonderful. It's a Mass if the host is consecrated. In other words when the priest holds up the bread and says "This is my body." That is when the ordinary bread (and he does it separately for wine but the same thing is true) becomes the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus. Most Masses are about an hour long and include among other things a sermon by the priest and gospel readings but this is the defining feature of the Mass.
Are you thinking about becoming catholic? What religion are you now?
Last Sunday I acted as the first time as a Lector in my Parish. The average person has no idea how big the font is in those lectionaries. Very easy to read.
Congrats FF... You are lucky your church has a good lectionary. I have seen some lectionaries with pages as large as you can imagine, but the font is only 10 pt. font. That is when it gets annoying!
2nd video is out by Center for Medical Progress, more evidence to back up first video that Planned Parenthood sells baby parts.

Ashes to Ashes, Amen.
Two very interesting articles in Crisis Magazine Online today:
Can a Catholic be a Collectivist?
To change social ideals and find different sources of hope we need to live and understand the world differently. There are of course Catholic reasons to move toward understandings and ways of life radically different from those common around us. Doing so would make the relation among the state, non-state initiatives, and individual well-being, along with everything else, look very different.
The other article:
Can a Christian be a Social Liberal?
The social liberal would respond that although we are certainly entitled to express our religious beliefs, we should not impose those beliefs on others. If my otherwise immoral actions entail no harm to others, then I should not be denied my freedom to perform these actions. This view commands the respect of not only liberals, but also a growing number of conservatives. The problem with this response lies not in its appeal to freedom, which is unequivocally good, and which explains why this view is inherently appealing. The problem, rather, is that it confuses true, spiritual freedom with a cheap, earthly imitation.
Yer man seems a bit ambiguous to me. For the state to provide services for all, and welfare for who needs it, is all fine and dandy.
To avoid invidious distinctions between welfare dependency and self-support, for example, it seems that government should, as a matter of equal citizenship, provide as many basic goods and services as possible gratis to all.
is taking the biscut.
And using the term "collectivism" to describe state services is over the top. Collectivism by it's name is a threat to private property.
And just to finish off
A society as big and complex as the United States can’t possibly be run democratically in any sense strong enough to justify identifying acts of the government with acts of the people.
Nonsense. You get what you vote for. People come up with the above to avoid responsibility when voting.
