    My sister was there, feeding me. She knew my potential for self-destructive behavior. Bless her.
    Perhaps my overall best friend, we haven't talked in seven years.

    Just for the record - could you clarify your comment above in RED?
    It doesn't make any sense.

    Sure.

    It might vary from different churches, but the difference between Celtic Catholic and Roman Catholic...

    We did not have Mary as part of anything or any other saints, there was only Christ to pray to, we did not believe that the bread was the literal body of Christ. We did do communion twice a week, recited Pater Noster, celebrated a few holidays, but there was also a emphasis on education and work ethic, as well as acts of service.

    The Bible was read twice a year, at least a chapter four times a day if I remember correctly. I designed the school uniforms. So there was no similarity there.

    While the Roman Catholic is sort of more male dominated, women are also permitted to lead. And I'm not aware of what kind of education any other catholic school goes by, but for us, we received a classical education, also known as a "leadership education."

    And I'm not sure why you set the Latin part in bold, but we learned Latin because it was the foundation for learning all languages. We had to learn a phrase in week in German, French, Spanish and something else but I can't remember the last one.

    I can't remember any of them.

    Then is wasn't Catholic.

    The Catholic Church is comprised of some TWENTY Liturgical Rites that are largely cultural in difference - but are in FULL communion with each other. There are no doctrinal differences that separate them - and we ALL profess the Real Presence of the Eucharist.

    There is no "Roman" Catholic Church there is the Roman (Latin) Rite, as well as the Coptic, Byzantine, Melkite, Maronite and about 15 others. We are ALL simply, "The Catholic Church".
    If the school YOU attended taught that the Eucharist was NOT the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ - then is wasn't a "Catholic" school.

    I suggest you educate yourself if you are going to try and debate Catholic matters . . .

    Sir, with all due respect, it was a Celtic Catholic school, we had a Celtic Catholic priest. I am also not debating Catholic matters. I am cleaning a bathroom.

    Unless you are referring to a separate post, in which case, I only did so because I was asked to by another Catholic and God put it on my heart what to say. I do not care about any particular denomination - I care about the truth according to correct doctrine because Jesus himself did.

    But I'm done now and now I have to work on the floors. So you'll have to take it up with him. Not me.

    Like I said - it was something - but it wasn't a Catholic school.
    Catholics believe in the Real Presence.

    Sounds like it was a dissident group, similar to the SSPX or some other breakaway sect.

    Of course.
    As with every other dishonest anti-Catholic - you freeze up when you are exposed . . .

    You didn't expose anything. You just clarified your own opinions on the subject.

    The Real Presence isn't my "opinion".
    It's one of the basic tenets of the Catholic faith.

    Without it - it ain't Catholic.
    Consider yourself exposed . . .

    I just want to bring it to your mind that I was not personally attacking you. I answered a question that you asked. Same with the previous thread, a Catholic asked me to do it and it was done according to their request so it could be discussed and we did agree to do so in a friendly manner. Not to attack anyone.

    I do not just willingly go out trying to find people to attack. So you are speaking out of turn. But I will wish you the best and I hope you have a nice day.

    It always strikes me as humorous how those with nothing to add to the conversation will attack my choice of formatting - instead of actually responding to the points I made . . .

    If they're doing that, I think it is because it makes it a little difficult to read because all of the bold words kind of jump out at once and then you have to read in between the rest.

    Not saying you have to stop. Just that it's a little hard on the eyes and less might make it easier to understand you.
