Vatican II Regional Message Board
We are 3 regions (this one, Vatican, and Saint Margaret Mary) operating under the direction of an elected prelature pope. Currently our pope is John Peter, the founder of this region. We role-play; thus some of us (not me) are virtual priests, cardinals, bishops. We ebb and flow; currently we are in bad need of priests.
Our seminarians attend seminary in Vatican. Sometimes we get "foreigners," nations from regions not in our alliance. When ordained, they are expected to return to their native regions and set up a diocese; but if they wish to stay in the VRCC, they may.
Vatican is generally a contemplative regions. V.II is our active region and the seat of our government. StMM is a memorial garden. We are also charged with protecting holy names. Many have been blasphemed previously, so we pick up the occasional region and colonize it. Thus, regions with names such as "Jesus" and "Christ" belong to us.
We offer our "services" to other regions. We have been involved with baptisms, marriages, christenings and funerals in other regions. We also offer prayers in foreign regions upon request.
Currently, because of the lull in activity, we have not been recruiting. But we welcome anyone here and we welcome any region which wishes to have a diocese. However, we cannot send our own priests to other regions, because--like the RL Catholic church--we have so few.
PP John Peter or Bishop Stoffa can answer further questions specifically about religion.
BTW thanks for getting us a delegate again. The bishop generally is the delegate, but he recently took a long vacation and has to join again.
No prob and thanks for letting me know!
If there is anything I need to do just let me know.
It's the first day of spring and outside my window I see the snowflakes falling and white all around. Are you trying to tell me something, God?
Hello there Ocium! Welcome to Vatican II! We're awfully glad you're here!! :D
I have my delegateship back now, as well. I'm a member of the WA again
You will be the delegate shortly. I was the delegate for a couple of days in your absence!
aww shucks :D You did a good job :3
Jesus, my Lord,
let me go to Mary
when suffering threatens to overwhelm me.
Ask your mother to stay with me
when I am afraid and tempted to surrender.
Let me look to Mary as my model for love,
as well as my haven of healing.
Make sure I am considerate of other people
and notice how they are affected by their suffering.
I'm not the only one.
I beg you, Lord,
to help me grow in compassion.
If I am faithful to You
and close to Your blessed mother,
those who suffer will be comforted by my presence...
and they will gain courage
as I stand beside them,
by their cross.
Amen! What a lovely prayer!
