    I told you never to ask me about my work.

    If I remember correctly, nuns pack heat in the form of rulers and pieces of chalk. So you may have one piece of chalk. And each of your family members may have billyclubs. I think that's reasonable.
    Wait, I have to fight ALL of them? And they ALL get billyclubs? Just cause they're all Irish doesn't mean they're all cops! Can I at least have a shield?

    Good luck on that endeavor. It's always nice to hear such stories.

    So do some Protestant sects. Lutherans actually give communion in individual glasses, which hilariously makes it look like they're drinking shot glasses.

    I've attended a few Protestant services, and they certainly are beautiful in their own unique ways. I just can't stand the sermons!

    But in the end, it confirms my decision to be a Catholic.

    We do wine at communion in the Episcopal (Anglican) church, but it may not be the best example of a protestant church.

    I actually have considerable respect for the more traditional "High" Anglican Church. Their liturgies are often impressive, far more sacral reverence than that found in many "Catholic" churches.

    Take these examples:

    [youtube=q0Nzl8PFtOY]Christmas Eve Closing Hymn 2007 - Kansas City Cathedral[/youtube]

    Then of course early Anglican hymns, like those written by Thomas Tallis

But we never should have stayed apart. It feels like a divorce to me, for some reason. The Catholic church has the history and ancientness that I really need. I see the Omniscience of God reflected back to me in the traditions of Mass. Something bigger and greater than myself.
    Ironically, the great Protestant theologian Karl Barth remarked that the Catholic Church was more true to the teachings of the Reformers than the Protestant churches themselves(since they long degenerated due to liberal theology).

    If you ever listen to early Protestant liturgy, you can still see the clear influence of Catholicism upon it. For example, Latin was still widely used in Protestant services well into the 17th century at least, and their basic structure was still based off the Catholic mass. This still remains true in some sectors. "High" Lutheran services are very similar to many Catholic Novous Ordo services.

    If you want, I can some examples of such. I already posted one hymn of Tallis'.

    Lutheran churches usually have a chalice and offer individual cup as an option.

    It's usually the standard practice at the one church I often attend.

    But, I didn't mention a thing about how great you looked in high heels. I didn't give you away.

    Fine you whiner. You can have a shillelagh. That's thematic enough, while still being degrading but amusing.

    I was baptized when I was three months old in the Methodist church that my parents had been married in. I joined the Catholic Church when I was seventeen.

    The Methodist churches I know about use glasses that do indeed look like shot glasses.

    Fr. Louis Bouyer argues pretty much the same thing in his Spirit and Forms of Protestantism.
