Can't you bilocate or something? :)


What about topics that haven't come up for discussion recently that have been emailed to you and have received no response? For example, requirements for tabernacle placement in newly constructed churches. I really don't want other's opinions as it is a topic likely to start a flamewar, but I need current specifics in order to explain to my MIL what the Church actually says. Where can we go to seek the answers for those questions if not through you or your blog? A point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated especially if a detailed response is too time consuming.

SW, for your specific question, I did a Google search with "tabernacle placement" and GIRM and came up with:

1. from Catholic Answers (the second questions)

2. from EWTN

3. from Adoremus

Hope that helps.


It does and it doesn't . My MIL is being told by the new pastor overseeing the construction of a new church for her parish that it is a matter for the parishioners to decide. He has stated that due to new regulations, behind the main altar is no longer an option. He even eluded to problems (I don't know what they are) that the latter placement causes. I would like to know from Mr. Akin where we can find definitive answers to questions such as these as it seems that everyone has their own opinion. This is the reason I like his blog, he always makes a distinction between his opinion and actual Church teaching.

SW, all three of those sites are very orthodox and quote from the General Instruction of the Roman Missal.

Jimmy has a lot of resources and could give you a more complete answer. I offered those three as an interim, a starting place.


Hey SW, why don't you try forums.catholic.com?

They have an "Ask An Apologist" thread that is very good.


To SW: The "problem" I've heard of is that the faithful become "confused" by having the tabernacle in the "worship space" as mass is conducted...I dont understand it either. Try humming, "Gifts of Finest Wheat" as you say it over and over.

To Jimmy: ( I assume youre reading your own thread). I've often wondered at the singualar nature of blogs. you are one of the few with multiple posters (postees?). Seems you could wrangle several friends to monitor the posts each day and cut off any flame wars. Posters may have to understand that beyond your intital post interaction may be minimal. Amazing what people expect for free.

http://www.squidoo.com/as-sex>Free Asian Porn Videos U.S. monetary policy affects all kinds of economic and financial decisions people make in this country—whether to get a loan to buy a new house or car or to start up a company, whether to expand a business by investing in a new plant or equipment, and whether to put savings in a bank, in bonds, or in the stock market, for example. Furthermore, because the U.S. is the largest economy in the world, its monetary policy also has significant economic and financial effects on other countries.


As slang, grammatical usage of the word teh is somewhat fluid. Besides being an alternate spelling of the, teh also has grammatical properties not generally applied to the; in general, it is used somewhat like an intensified "the". The spelling derived from a typographical mistake seen as the symptom of excitement, much the same as the interjection of the numeral one between bangs.http://lesbian-huge-orgasm.blogtur.com>lesbian huge orgasm In English, "the" can be used as an intensifier for the superlative form of adjectives; compare "that is best" and "that is the best." Teh has a similar use as an intensifier f
or unmodified adjectives, generally marking a sarcastic tone. For example, "that is teh lame" translates as "that is the lamest." This is similar to the use of the definite article lo in Spanish. For example, "Soy lo mejor" (I am the best) and "I am teh good". This contrasts with the use of the in English to construct mass nouns (substantives) from adjectives,
