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?

My "work" is often not physically done in the office. I can be reading on a park bench or grading papers at Starbucks and be "at work." Again, a very limited perspective about "work" and "working hours."

I think non-Catholics should buy their own sympathy cards and take the time to sincerely pray their own prayers.

Kickboxing is really great for toning. I love that I can do it now twice a week.

"I think non-Catholics should buy their own sympathy cards and take the time to sincerely pray their own prayers." So do I, but there is nothing to prevent one from doing both; offerein masses for the souls of the deceased seems to bring comfort to the relatives of my deceased friends.

Mass cards are for wakes. You don't pay for them for a mass. They go to the family after the wake/burial.

That's crazy, lol!  Spinning classes are as close to that kind of pain as I'll get, but even that is much, much easier for me than kickboxing.

Etiquette dictates that the church not rudely return a tacky request like that from a non-Catholic.

OK, whatever it is called when you fill out a card to have a mass said for the soul of a deceased person and have to give a "suggested donation" to have it done. For instance, we have a very dear friend who lost their son, named Nicholas, in a car accident many years ago. Whenever I travel and there is a church dedicated to St Nicholas, I have a mass said and they send a card to tell the family that one has been offered. The family loves this and after many years are grateful that someone remembers their son.

Ok, that is not a mass card. A mass card is something you purchase and bring to a wake. You are having the mass for that person, that week. I never heard of  having to pay though. Maybe if you are not with the church they ask for a donation.
