... every time you drive down the street past a Catholic church, you make the Sign of the Cross.

You are the new kid in the neighbourhood and every Seventh Day Adventist, fundamentalist Pentecostal, and Jehovah's Witness wants to be your Very Best Friend.

The Jehovah's Witnesses discover what Church you attend and avoid you like the plague...

Your friends ask "Wow, so when did you decide to become a vegetarian?" about half way through Lent.

you are planning to move closer to the Church to make daily Mass easier to manage.

(I met someone who threw a miraculous medal over the fence of the house next door and prayed. It worked.)

You hide a miraculous medal in a New Age shop and it closes down.

You have a blessed St. Christopher medal or statue in your car.

You pray to St. Anthony as soon as you mislay something, and thank him when you find it.

You pray to St. Jude if St. Anthony seems busy.

You have books of Catholic prayers in your purses, your house, and your car (just in case).

When you see a funeral procession, you cross yourself and say a prayer.

You forget and counsel a sinning Protestant friend to tell her priest in confession.

The highlight of your trip to anywhere is going to Mass in their church or cathedral.

The souvenir you have to bring back from Europe is holy water from Lourdes. If this was under threat of confiscation, you'd have to drink it and pray for healing.

You spend hours every day talking with other Catholics on CAF!

And you can't imagine how other people manage to do life without the Body and Blood of Jesus!

I'm neither Italian, nor Italian nor German and I have a picture of BXVI at my bedroom's desk. Perhaps I'll create a thread for this

... because you invite them to become Catholic so they can continue to evangelize door-to-door. I mean ... like ... you invite them to come back, ... but they never do.

Or, you could choose the color of your Guess purse based on the liturgical season.....
