Our organist watched too many Vincent Price movies.

My dad would turn around in the pew and flash him dirty looks, hoping that the organist would see my dad in his little rear view mirror from up in the balcony.

Grew up eating dinners at my catholic grandma's house (the one who is convinced I'm gay and 'ruined' by mom's Lutheranism), and for the longest time I just did not realize there were actually words in pre-meal grace instead of a v hastily recited string of syllables.

four weeks pass...

I guess it's most appropriate for this thread to end with that ^^, BUT, inspired by people's random recollections upthread, here are two memories I have from attending church/mass when I was growing up

-this one parishioner would wear all green every week, including green socks, green shoes(!), etc.

-one week there was a young guest priest from some other part of the country saying the mass, and he began the homily with "now, what i'm going to talk about is something that we might tend to avoid talking about, but it's important to address..." i thought that he was maybe going to speak about pro-life blah blah blah or tithing or something. instead he launches into a looooong tirade concerning the evils of...masturbation! "THAT GUILT IS THERE FOR A REASON!"

Did people in this go to church in the 1950s or something? Ave Maria and pater noster were always referred to as hail mary and our father in my school /church.

bummed that I missed this poll though I would have voted hail mary anyway

Salve Regina needs more love though

Hail, Holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V. Pray for us, O holy mother of God:

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Almighty and everlasting God, by the cooperation of the Holy Spirit thou hast prepared the body and soul of Mary, glorious Virgin and Mother, to become the worthy habitation of Thy Son; Grant that by her gracious intercession, in whose commemoration we rejoice, we may be delivered from present evils and from everlasting death. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

V. May divine assistance remain with us always.

R. Amen.

"To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve"? that is the good sweet stuff right there imo

to this day i still can't parse these lines satisfactorily:

"angel of god, my guardian dear, to whom god's love commits me here"

i am here, committed by god's love to the guardian angel? wait, what?

dell (del), Saturday, 28 August 2010 16:48 (nine years ago) link

huh, that is a nice prayer, underrated

also, what is up with people who were raised catholic being able to sniff each other out in uncanny fashion? i've dated shedsfull of catholics, and sprinklings of jews, hindus, even the occasional entirely godless HEATHEN, but almost no protestants
