"Still Too Catholic"

Kate at Small Dead Animals reacts to the meditations on the Stations of the Cross posted at the Vatican Website.

Yeah. I guess some people don't get the "in the world but not of it" thing.

As for me, well, it's been another odd Lenten season. 4 out of 5 on the Law of the Fish (I suppose that technically I have an out for the Friday during Detour since I did spend some of it instructing the ignorant and feeding the hungry, but that's not really what those particular acts of mercy are all about. I also don't think I'm sick enough to be excused on that pretext either.) Still not happy with the local parishes, and still undecided about where I should go today for Good Friday services. The 5:15 at St. Olaf's has the contemporary choir (shudder) and the Tenebrae at the Basilica isn't until 8. I'll think of something, I'm sure.

Both hubby and I are recovering Catholics. The last time I attended Mass was for my father's funeral. My sister and her family are still active in the Church so we will be going back in a couple of weeks for my niece's First Communion. Then that will prabably be it until someone else dies.

Even thought I don't really even consider myself Catholic anymore I still avoid eating meat on Fridays in Lent, and on especially on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. I don't know why, it must be force of habit. I didn't eat meat yesterday, but the handful of jelly beans I ate probably violates the fast, anyway.

Have a Joyous Easter.
