How Catholic is your home?

Ebeth put this great quiz up for us all to see how Catholic our home is.

Are morning and night prayers a daily occurrence in your home?

We pray every evening as a family. I have morning prayer with the children that are home schooled.

Do you say grace before and thanks to God after meals?

Grace before, but no thanks after. Maybe a good thing to start.

Do you say a family Rosary every night?

Not every night, but Steve and I pray it together fairly often. Probably 4 out of the 7 nights. We probably pray it as a family once a fortnight or so.

Do you carry a Rosary at all times?

No but I always know where one is in the house or if I don't can count on my 10 fingers.

Do you wear a religious medal or a scapular?

No. I want to though so will look into getting one.

Do you read and discuss the Bible often?

No.

Is your home dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus?

Every night at prayer we dedicate ourselves to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate heart. I haven't ever heard of dedicating a home to it. Is this the same thing maybe?

Is there a crucifix hanging in a prominent place?

No. We really should look into doing this.

Do you ask God’s help in the solution of family problems?

Yes. All the time.

Do you have a sick-call set for Communion or Anointing of the Sick?

No.

Do you attend church as a family?

Yes.

Do you go to Confession regularly?

not as regularly as we should.

Do the children attend a Catholic school or Catholic religious instruction program?

Yes.


Do you have religious instruction at home?

Yes.

Are there Catholic periodicals in your home?

Yes.

Do you have a crib at Christmas?

Yes.

Do you send out cards that indicate Christmas is the birth of Christ?

I am very bad at sending cards but if I do, they will be Christian ones.

Does Christmas mean the coming of Christ or a chance to get gifts?

coming of Jesus.

Does Easter Sunday mean the resurrection of Christ or new clothes?

Resurrection

Do you ever invite lonesome or needy people into your home?

no.

Do you ever provide a basket of food to a needy family, not just at Thanksgiving and Christmas but during the rest of the year?

very rarely.

Thanks Ebeth for a great quiz.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
