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?

lol. The burn for ballet is for the lower body. Kettle bell is great for all over. I need to work on my triceps. The biscepts are getting harder though. Kickboxing works everything. My shoulders are actually still aching a little bit from last nights class from the bands.

Isn't that funny?  I can't do repetitious, torturous muscle things.  And I never work on my upper body.  My arms aren't Michelle Obama's, but not far behind.  I don't want any more muscle there (I play lots of tennis).  So kettle bell and any class with the word "Burn" in it, is probably one I won't sign up for.

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.

What else are they going to say?  And only you would know if the family really needs to have it all brought home again whenever you casually happen upon a church "dedicated" to St. Nicholas.

As far as I know, having a mass said is usually not considered "tacky," and no one has ever objected before. I'll be sure not to have any masses said for any of your loved ones, Thardy. I wouldn't want to offend you by honoring your loved one in that manner.

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.

"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.

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

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.

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