Hey Melchior is here! Welcome!

Probably mostly lurking more than anything else, but you never know when I might jump into a conversation.

So far the welcome here went better than my "hello" thread a FE, in which I was called poisonous and essentially a heretic on the first page.

Born and raised.  Even that Game 7 won't keep me from hoping for next year.

Like I said in my intro, being a Leafs fan is a prime virtue-building exercise.  Well...either that or it drives you to drink.

Anyway, more about me; those from CAF and FE know me well enough at this point.  I'm definitely not what one would call a traditionalist, but I very much enjoy discussing things with them.  I enjoy learning about all aspect of the faith, and I try to be respectful of valid/approved customs, traditions, and practices - even if those things aren't ones I'm a fan of personally.

I'm pretty transparent with my spirituality.  I'm loyal to the Pope (some would say I place too much emphasis on his role as chief judge and lawmaker of the Church).  I study Franciscan writings (especially Duns Scotus lately), Canon Law, and the early Church Fathers.  And the Bible, can't forget that.  Probably the most controversial aspect of my faith life is my involvement with the charismatic renewal, which is how some don't even consider me a neo-cat but instead an out-and-out heretic.

I'm fine with disagreements over optional practices, even if the discussions are heated.  But there's a recent thing over on another message board which has left a sour taste in my mouth, which may result in my getting my "lets have intellectual discussions about things" from some place else.

Confession every week, because I'm a broken man (in a literal and metaphorical sense).  I'd go every day if I could.

Hi Melchior.

I remember you from FE.

Welcome, from one newcomer to another.

May I please ask you in all charity, why do you not assist at the TLM?

Is it because you do not have access to one, or for another reason?

God bless

I talk a bit about it here; http://vagrantcatholic.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/journey-to-the-child-jesus/ (http://vagrantcatholic.wordpress.com/2013/01/21/journey-to-the-child-jesus/).  Before anyone asks, jeans and the batman shirt were my best clothes at the time, which I suppose doubles as a "don't judge a book by it's cover" moment.

The EF just isn't for me I suppose, just like how the EF speaks to others more than the OF does in some cases.  If I did attend the EF I'd say that I'd want to attend low Mass /w plain chant.

I don't hold anything against the EF or anything, and I do wish it was more widely available to those who want that expression of Catholicism.

Some Senators pics might just make it all better.

No...I can't bring myself to post anything making the Sens look good.

I'm very, very apathetic about the Sens.  Couldn't care less about them.  get back to me when you've got the same history as Habs/Laughs and Habs/Poohs.

I have no real opinion either way as far as that Leafs/Bruins series goes, but that one of Rask making the save is definitely some great photographic work.

The Mass is not about if we "understand " it or not.

The Sacrifice is not at all about us but about Almighty God.

The only team worth cheering for is the Bruins.  That comeback was one of the most epic I've ever seen.
