Topic Ideas

Hey there, all,

I was wondering what are some of the topics you'd like to know more about from the Catholic perspective. I'm generally winging it and wanted to respond to your needs too.

Here are some of the ideas I have
1. more book studies, especially for the books not in the Protestant Bible
2. Catechism readings
3. Topics from the RCIA classes
4. Saints
5. Mary
6. the Pope, Priests, Nuns
7. the Mass, and how it's changing
8. Prayers
9. The Rosary
10. Catholic Internet resources

What are some of your ideas for topics to learn about with me?

Sleepless in the Snow

Well, we are due to get pounded with snow today. I'm restless and not able to sleep tonight, so rather than knitting a pair of socks I'm blogging on Catholicism. The world can be strange at times.
