Another quiz

http://www.beliefnet.com/section/quiz/index.asp?sectionID=&surveyID=95 got me rather well, though I have never seen the film.

You Are a Daily Rosary (Very Traditional) Catholic You'd like the church to revive the time-honored devotions, liturgical practices, and strong institutional discipline that prevailed before the Second Vatican Council—and you're hoping that Pope Benedict XVI will lead the church in exactly that direction. Your favorite hymn is probably a traditional Latin composition such as the "Panis Angelicus," and your favorite pope is probably a pioneer of the Church's great liturgical tradition such as Gregory the Great. You loved "The Passion of the Christ."

I came out the same as you!! The only question I didn't like was the one on hymns and church music. I like Gregorian Chant and Latin Hymns and traditional hymns and some modern liturical music.

Mac: you haven't read my profile, have you!

Fr Paul: I agree entirely (though I could probably survive if I never heard the Panis Angelicus ever again). I was listening to the Cannonesses of the Holy Sepulchre from New Hall Priory singing some modern chant earlier and have Arvo Part's Berliner Messe (1992) on now.

Ttony, even if you never want to see another film again, you would have loved The Passion of the Christ... I found it to be such an excellent meditation on the Passion that I went to the cinema nine times. And then I bought the DVD. It forms part of my Good Friday meditation now...

...hey, you're a traddie. Trust me!

And there was me trying to decide whether or not to buy a copy of "The Great Silence".

OK. I'll buy a copy of "The Passion of the Christ" as well next time I write to Mr Amazon.

My wife wants to watch "The History Boys" (released about 9 March) because I wouldn't go to the cinema to watch it with her. On the list is also "The Whale Rider" for her, and (book) "Pies and Prejudice" for me (it's by a Lancastrian living down south who is nevertheless sound on the iniquities of Yorkshiremen). I'll add the two DVDs, and then think of possibly adding some religious books: "Turning Towards the Lord: Orientation in Liturgical Prayer" by Uwe Michael Lang; and possibly "Scribe of the Kingdom: Essays on Theology and Culture
by Aidan Nichols, O.P." (though £95 for the two volumes is a bit more than I'd like to pay).

You realise, don't you, that you are driving me gently towards penury? Can I tell my wife it's all your fault?
