Ha! I saw that Star Wars thingy on New Advent. I thought it was great.

Did the Second Vatican Council come with Midi-chlorians too?

There appears to be some resistance to the new English translation of the Latin Mass. If the new translation is more accurate, other than routine, why would anyone resist?

As someone who is High Church curious, I thought I would ask this question (and since I'm new to CPS):

How many of you were born and raised Catholic and how many of you were adult converts (and from what other tradition)?
Adult convert here. Raised Southern Baptist, to which background I owe much. Pretty well left Christian faith in college, but a gracious God reclaimed me in graduate school with the following progression: Bible church, then Evangelical Free Church, then Bible churches again (including four years at a well-known evangelical theological seminary), then Presbyterian (PCA), then Episcopal, and finally received Easter 1998 into the Catholic Church. What more could one ask -- Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, Liturgy, Sacraments, Magisterium, the deepest wells of prayer and devotion, fellow pilgrims of every race and nationality, and most of all, our Lord Himself in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Thanks be to God! Home at last!

You would have to ask one of them. I'm guessing you won't find many (if any) on here.

Haven't watched the video, but I'd bet it is pretty accurate, if not very.

I have only seen a little of that, but it seems that it is a case of simply not adapting well to change.

From my pre councilliar perspective the more accurate newer translation is most welcome and the other reversionary changes expected in the areas of music and architecture are exciting to ponder.

I plan on waiting until our priest gets the right color vestments (black) back before I die :wink:

What is the League of Bearded Catholics? I found the reference on Mr. OldWorldSwines’ blog page.

First, let's make clear what The League of Bearded Catholics is not... it is not an organization, let alone a Catholic men's organization. With some work it could become, say, a Loose Association, but even that sounds like too much fuss.

The League is meant to be held together by nothing much more than a sincere and spontaneous appreciation for Catholic culture, for authentic Catholic manhood and for the company of Catholic men and the women who tolerate them. If there is a chewy center to the Tootsie Roll Pop that is The League, it is an appreciation and gratitude especially for the lives and literary work of Tolkien, Lewis, Belloc and Chesterton - TLBC - (not necessarily in that order).

So, TLBC stands equally for The League of Bearded Catholics, and for Tolkien, Lewis, Belloc and Chesterton. You may have noticed that they are all dead British guys, and all important Christian writers of the twentieth century. You may also have noticed that not all of these gentlemen wore beards.

Just saw a commercial from the Catholics Come Home group. On during the Today show. I had heard that commercials were coming.

It looks as if it is a sort of literary, smoking, drinking, philosophy, theological swatch of activities for Catholics (or those who are not Catholic, but adhere to basic Catholic ideas) that get together and simply enjoy each other’s company. Is this correct?

What is Christmas? Don't ask a Catholic University!

Yup. Uber-Catholic uber-nerds, out having fun. Not much different than what we do here at CPS.

TLBC gather in social Christian fellowship, and usually pick a hobby of some sort.

When Pipeson and Cigarson were teenagers, they had TLBC group going.... they were too young to drink, but we let them smoke at my home, and they even introduced some of their young friends pipes (with their parents' permission, of course). There was also quite a bit of Dungeons & Dragons played.

Cigarson has a TLBC thing going with his young adult friends. They have a variety of hobbies, like home-brewing beer and gear-head discussions concerning motorcycles and cars.

Sounds intriguing. How would I learn if such a group exists locally?
