    I don't feel sad for Carol Wojtyla at all. He's in a far better place now. I do feel sad for the 700 million+ Catholics in the world, who've lost a great leader.

    No biggie at all, tr. It sounds like a joke. I wondered the same when I first heard the story.

    You have shown your true colors here plenty of times... we know that you are not the belittling or trouble-making sort. You are one of the last people here that I would think to make light of fun of another's religion.

    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    That's nice.
    FWIW, I read it and thought, "Yeah, that sounds like something we would do."

    It's a wonderfully rich, if sometimes comical tapestry of rituals that Catholics live by. In fact, the reason I could never just pick another faith was that I was raised in old churches, with strange statues and gothic, arcane rituals and would find anything else unbearable.

    Walking rosary on the the steps at Imaculata, keeping a "Mary in the bathtub" in your yard, praying at the grotto before a big game, genuflecting, "emergency" baptismal crucifixes, that thing that looks like a microphone for shaking holy water at people...who can deny we've got plenty for people to wonder about?
