My neighbour's mum died earlier in the year and his dad has been staying with him since then pretty much. Neighbour's mum was fairly Catholic. Anyway it turns out they have her ashes still in the house and yes grief etc etc and yet I am also sat here thinking "I feel like the church recently clarified the deal with ashes and how you shouldn't keep them at home or something"
Why yes, my hobby IS enduring the poor formatting of the Vatican website to find out exactly why our priest is wrong on this thing that I suspect he is wrong on (and like, I didn't even go to Sunday school or really study Catholicism at regular school or anything, this is just what I've picked up attending Mass every week for 35 years)
I mean, it's not great when someone who spent 6-7 years studying a topic and then basically marries it for the rest of their life isn't clear on the thing... but whatever
These thoughts brought to you by "I'm not religious but I pray every day, abstain from meat on Fridays, observe Holy Days of Obligation, go to Mass every Sunday..." lol
