You Know You're Catholic When..

10) The loss of your monthly Magnificat at the start of the month is a near occasion of sin. 

9) You have eaten a Filet-o-Fish. 

8) You scream at the radio whenever they play "Mary did you know?" Yes! For Crying Out Loud! An angel Gabriel...
7) After years of uniforms, wearing plaid is oddly comforting.

6) Someone is asking what you think of the newest doctor and you say, "I haven't yet read Saint Gregory of Narek's 'Speaking with God from the Depths of the Heart," but I plan to..."

5) You struggle when the lines for the confessional are long.

4) You know Transubstantiation counts for at least 20 words in Scrabble, before the bonus points.

Rooting for the Irish can be argued as a form of penance. At the very least, it teaches humility.

You know that gator, snake, and capybara don't count as meat, even if you've never ventured to try that last one.

1) Your kids have calculated out Lent to be 45 days until Easter, and spent time online figuring out the feast days to bring that tally back down to 40.

Hang in there, Lent is long but we're coming to the end of this high fast season.   Thought everyone could use a chuckle to start the week, and soldier up for the remaining two weeks of fasting, alms-giving, prayer and penance.

11. When someone say "May the force be with you your 1st reaction is 'and also with you'

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.

If you sneak my work, No Chocolate for You!
