Lent Day 5

Extremely well said comment,Earl. Christ's Sacrifice is truly the cornerstone of Christianity...but I'm not talking about Christianity in general. Bring it even more specific. What sets Catholics as Catholics specifically within Cristianity? Here's my thought - The Eucharist. To me, that's why I go to a Catholic Church. Something so intimate as being present for the Transubstantiation, and taking the Eucharist...

The Handsome one has been asking me questions about Lent, and why we don't eat meat on Fridays, things like that. I try to explain it to him, but it leaves me as such.. when I explain the reason, as I'm saying it, I'm thinking wait a minute, this must sound so silly to him.. wait.. does this soud still y to me? Or even worse, I don't know the true reason behind it... so it looks like I don't know my own faith and I am a true Cradle Catholic..

Ok people, how do I deal with this one? Floor's open..

Lisa, you are my favorite anachronism, living this one part of your life (the French Catholic part) like it's 1950.
Let's rethink this lent thing. If it's a sort of recession for the soul, who gets bailed out and who has to declare bankruptcy?

Quite true, I would also like to point its not only the Eucharist but the whole effect the Eucharist has had on the Catholic theology, culture, and mindset down through the centuries.
