What I Learned Wednesday #5

To be honest, I wasn't going to do this because I've been busy today but then I saw a video that I couldn't not post so... here it goes.

1) Thanks to OpenlyCatholic, I took a 100+ question quiz that tested my Catholic I.Q. I didn't do too badly (considering that I was improperly taught and that I just reverted to the Faith only 6 years ago; I'm still playing catch up) but still not good enough. My final score was a 168. I'm actually going to retake it because I did it when I had that flu-like bug a couple of weeks ago, but I'm guessing it won't be much higher (if any higher) than that. If you want to take the quiz, do so. Maybe it'll inspire you to participate in What I Learned Wednesday. ;) I definitely have a lot to learn so at least I'll always have material for this link up. :D

2) This is what I've doing (faith related) since NYE: I've been trying to catch up on the Catechism in a Year emails (currently in early-mid December). Besides that, I've been thinking about writing a post about Hispanic superstitions and how some try to merge that with Catholic beliefs. I am well aware that other cultures have similar problems but, since I'm Hispanic, I wanted to write what I've seen and experienced myself. I had a hard time trying to figure out which NYE traditions were fun and which were actually bordering on dangerously superstitious. Hopefully, when I have the time, I'll really get into it.

3) This video pretty much sums up the "ordain womyn priests now" battle cry I heard at my CINO college the two years I was there. And, yes, I cringed and faithpalmed the entire time I watched it. I almost didn't make it through the entire thing. In case you're wondering, this is not a parody.

Did anyone survive that? *shudders*

Anyway, I have a ton of things so... away I go. :) If you want to participate and make your own What I Learned Wednesday post/tweet (which, for the tl;dr crowd, means writing about something -- no matter how big or small, short or long, tweet or blog post -- that you learned about the Faith this past week), here's the link up picture that Beth Anne created (if you wish you use it).

I've extended WILW until tomorrow night because of how late I posted it today. :) And don't forget to tag it #WILW if you share it on twitter and to link it on this blog post, below the signature. :D

OH! And don't forget to send me your prayer requests! :D

Hope everyone is having a week thus far. :D

As always, thanks for reading and God bless. :D
