Practicing Catholic

I talked to my priest yesterday. He was so nice! He said that he couldn’t give me a certificate that said I am a practicing Catholic because I am not and he can’t lie. He did say he would provide me with a certificate that stated I was baptized, confirmed and received the Eucharist. Hopefully this will work and I can be Fifi’s Godmother.

I don’t feel too bad about being a non-practicing Catholic Godmother. Audra knows what I am. And if she had a problem with my heathenism… well, she wouldn’t have asked me. Here’s the thing, I went to Catechism… and a Catholic College, and I sat through King of Kings at least 3 times. I can ensure that Fifi’s religious education is carried out. I can make sure the kid’s got the Catholic in her!

Right now I just have to forward the certificate over to Audra and wait and see what Audra’s priest has to say… hopefully he’ll be okay with me serving. We shall see!

    I saw Fiddler On The Roof twice, plus nearly every Woody Allen and Mel Brooks movie. I’m pretty sure that means I can practice Judaism now. Oh, and I’m a Ben Stiller fan, so that seals it.

    In my opinion, you live a Christian life. You are kind, caring, and generous to others. I’ve never known you to hurt anyone, lie, cheat, or steal. Of course, to be considered a practicing Catholic you need to attend and support your church. Maybe they’ll take a note from your Mom.

    Oh, and while you’re graciously allowing me to ramble,
    I did a little bit of research on Ricky Gervais. Here’s Ricky’s take on morality:

    “Do unto others…” is a good rule of thumb. I live by that. Forgiveness is probably the greatest virtue there is. But that’s exactly what it is -­‐ a virtue. Not just a Christian virtue. No one owns being good. I’m good. I just don’t believe I’ll be rewarded for it in heaven. My reward is here and now. It’s knowing that I try to do the right thing. That I lived a good life. And that’s where spirituality really lost its way. When it became a stick to beat people with. “Do this or you’ll burn in hell.”

    Those are Ricky’s thoughts….maybe yours too, but I don’t presume.
