I was a Catholic

I like your questions and presentation. I grew up a Catholic. I am one of those older people you speak of.
reasons why I loved my experiences:
1. I loved the incense
2. I loved the robes, candles, and ritual
3. I loved the latin mass
4. I sang in the choir and loved that experience as well
5. I loved my sense of devotion, my utter faith
6. I loved being the virgin Mary in a play at Christmas
7. I had a wonderful experience with a nun in my 6th grade class, she really saw the real me and supported my art. Her support turned my life around.
8. I loved exploring the church towers one night with a group of kids my age while the church had a celebration in the basement, I felt like Nancy Drew
What I didn't like:
1. I was never taught science
2. We sat in class rooms that were seperated, boys on one side of the room and girls on the other....we were forbidden to look across... yeks!
3. Some of the nuns seemed quite tense and had very little joy in their lives...some of the priests as well.
4. I hated kissing the Monsignor's ring on his finger when he lay in open cassket in the church. Most bizzare!
