Er, Not *Quite* a Daily Rosary Catholic

I retook the Catholic quiz and scored a 98 . . . which makes me significantly more traditionalist than the last time I took it.

You’d like the church to revive the time-honored devotions, liturgical practices, and strong institutional discipline that prevailed before the Second Vatican Council—and you’re hoping that Pope Benedict XVI will lead the church in exactly that direction. Your favorite hymn is probably a traditional Latin composition such as the “Panis Angelicus,” and your favorite pope is probably a pioneer of the Church’s great liturgical tradition such as Gregory the Great. You loved “The Passion of the Christ.”

I can not pinpoint the reason for the “bump up,” but I suppose it’s due to the fact that I expressed appreciation for Gregorian chant. It makes all the difference.



  1. Hmm. I scored a 96. Looks like you’re a bit more traditional than I am. đŸ™‚

    Some of the choices they give us are deficient, though.

  2. You scored 96, on a scale of 0 to 100.

    Hmm, last time I scored 88%… my answer really didn’t change all that much…that I know of … perhaps they re-visited the scoring and made it more in-line with my…err…orthodox thinking.


    Thinking, Laura, that perhaps your weekly adoration attendance, and other such factors, have influenced you to become more orthodox/traditional.

  3. I scored a 67 and it does’t surprise me that I’m less conservative than you my dear Laura. Loving my moderate/progressive congregation out here in California. I also loved the bit about Pope John Paul II – we’ve had many conversations out here about the difference between relativism and relevantism… đŸ™‚
