[It was before Vatican II and the liberalization of church doctrine.] You weren't meant to eat meat on Friday in deference to Christ, who died on Friday. If you did, you went to hell, ... That way, Hitler would be in hell alongside someone who ate meat on Friday. I thought there was no justice there.Christopher Durang

My wife expects me to be on a plane to Rome for the CBS screening of the CBS TV movie about Pope John Paul . The screening is at the Vatican on the 17th, and I've got to be on the plane on the 16th, so I'm hoping we can conclude the deal by the 15th, which is deadline, so I can please Hideki and please my wife ? and meet the pope.Arn Tellem
The Catholic laity doesn't know what priests the Vatican is being asked to sanction. They don't know what the bishops are recommending. We don't know why some get no sanctions, some get minimal sanctions and some get removed from the priesthood. If sanctions are imposed, it is often months before it's announced. And there seems to be absolutely no monitoring of these prayer and penance guys.David Clohessy
