Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

I would do what the family requested or what I thought would bring most comfort to the family. I would consider a Mass card, flowers, or a charitable donation in honor of the deceased, for instance. Why would you do?

Ok, cool. 

I'd do the same, I may even double up with multiple forms of condolence depending on the relationship, e.g. flowers at the funeral home and a requested mass for later.  I still request masses said for mother, 16 years after her death, I believe that's a common catholic thing and not something people only remember doing at a funeral.   (Mass requests can be for living individuals too, Like in celebration of an anniversary, just an FYI which you may already know).

Of course my opinions and conclusions are supported by facts.   Where do you think I get them from, thin air?

"I didn't think you were living by the belief that you must always be right, You know that crazy narcissism talk and all that." it's not nice to call names, Jamblessed. In fact, it's a violation of TOS. And it's not that I "must" always be right, but I don't really see any advantage in being wrong. Do you tell your kids it doesn't really matter if they are right or wrong, one is just as good as the other? Or do you teach them right from wrong for a reason?

I don't "rip apart Catholicism," Jamblessed. I am Christian myself and have a great deal of respect for the historic faith. I don't think any denomination is perfect, and frankly, I couldn't care less if you think me doing something nice is tacky. Everybody's a critic, lol. I've never seen my name in the church bulletin. It's my understanding that in most cases, a private notice is sent to the family.

"so you would send a mass card in lieu of flowers b/c funeral etiquette tells you to?" In any given situation, I would do what the family requested or what I thought would bring most comfort to the family. I would consider a Mass card, flowers, or a charitable donation in honor of the deceased, for instance. Why would you do?

I agree with you, kettle bells come in different weights too.  Do you use them independently or do you use them in a class at the gym?

There are all sorts of rememberances, The notion that a mass card is "better" than something else is tacky, I agree thardy. 

ETA besides, a mass intention in honor of the deceased is a kind catholic thing.  I don't think it's very nice to rip apart catholicism then paint yourself some wonderfully sympathetic person b/c you are having a mass said for somebody you know that died.  Is your name listed in the church bulletin as the giver of said mass?
