    Just looking for opinion. I do not wear red during Lent-my mother said that we don’t. Our Parish Priest wants everyone to wear red for Palm Sunday.

      In my nearly seventy years have I ever heard of a priest asking for the laity to do such a thing. You did not mention if he gave a reason or not. But the laity is not required at any time to wear any specific color of clothing. The priest IS, however, to wear the liturgical colors for the celebration of the Mass. The color red is the color of blood and used on all feasts of the Lord’s Cross and Passion, on the feast of the Apostles and all martyrs. Red is also used on Pentecost and in Masses of the Holy Spirit, in memory of the tongues of fire of the First Pentecost. Your mother is correct that red is not worn as a liturgical color by the laity or any of the other liturgical colors. The laity is only required to dress appropriately for Mass and the color chosen is of no significance. I hope this answers your question.

    I see many varied opinions on the effects of Vatican II. What good things have come from Vatican II and what harm has it done since you have lived during pre Vatican II and post.

    Almost seventy years. You got to go before Vatican II. Do you think Vatican II was a good think? Has you husband also been going that long? One of the reasons my ex is my ex is he would go, but then get up and go outside and wait in the car until Mass was over. You’re so lucky if he shares Mass with you. Although going by oneself it’s easier to stay focused on what is important. Imo

      No Vatican II was not good and should never have been called. Why do you think Our Lady of Fatima said the Third Secret had to be read no later than 1960? She warned us and there were Saints that warned us of a bad council, but we are stubborn and just do as we please. Now, Rome is following in the footsteps of Martin Luther, trying to totally destroy the Church. I hope you are not receiving Communion if there has been no legitimate annulment. This is still a sin in the true Roman Catholic Church, not in this new church. This new church is the church of man and not of Jesus Christ. We will not set foot in a new church or attend their “mass”.

    Annulments are just a formality. Parish Priest said he hasn’t heard of one being denied since about 1970. Just come up with a few hundred dollars and you get one. In fact he approached me and asked if I wanted one. I’m not sure on what basis it will be declared lacking validity, but I guess that is their job and they know how to do it. There is one woman in the Parish who said her marriage was valid in her opinion and will not allow them to file for an annulment-she says she will remain as she is. Isn’t it true that unless you plan on getting re-married one isn’t necessary? I doubt I’ll get married again

      Annulments are not just a formality. This is very serious, at least in the Catholic Church. Not so much in this new order of the church of man. The new order is making a mockery of the sacrament. It is up to the two who were married to prove there was no marriage and the Tribunal to decide if the evidence is such that the marriage did not or should not have happened. There has to be proof of an impediment, lying to the priest or infidelity, something concrete. If you never plan on marrying again, then it is up to you to remain celibate, also that if you should change your mind and find someone you would like to marry, it can’t happen in the Catholic Church without an annulment, otherwise, being married outside of the Church with no annulment would make you an adulteress. So this is a very serious matter, not just a formality.
