    Well the way it works over here is like this:
    Grades Kindergarten through 8 you go to CCD for an hour every Saturday morning. In 3rd grade, you get your First Communion. So in that respect, it's just like it is in your area.
    But then, during grades 9 and 10, you have "Confirmation classes". These are hour long classes that you go to once a week. Finally, towards the end of your sophomore year of High School, you get Confirmed.
    During childhood and adolesence I was pretty deeply involved with Christianity. I even wanted to be a Priest (an Exorcist, actually ) for awhile, but by the time I was 16 I had moved onto other things. So no, I did not want to be Confirmed. That, however, did not stop my parents from making me take the classes.

    Of course pre-Vatican II traditionalists who happen to be active nationalists as well aren't too popular in the mainstream church anyway, so when I attend mess it better be in Latin. Unfortunately in my city the only traditionalist church is filled with Pollacks and spaghettis and I kinda feel in the wrong place there.

    Same here. Although I went further on that road than you did. I finally gave up the plan to become a Premonstratensian monk at 22. Sometimes I still think I should have taken that route.

    I too was raised in a Catholic family. I too went through confirmation, first communion and such. I was forced to go to church until I was 16. I hated it. Didn't make sense to me then and still doesn't make sense to me now.

    And I think the Catholic Church is pretty hypocritical that it attempts to be compassionate to poor people or whatever and yet is worth billions. It's a money collecting scheme with tax advantages is what it is.

    It definitely takes a certain kind of person to live that lifestyle. The only reason I never really went through with it was because of a change in beliefs. My views are too unorthodox and I would have ended up living a lie.
    I don't know what your situation is, but it seems like you are at least still a believer. Who is to say that one day you may not pick up where you left off?

    Milesian is going to hurt you tomorrow
    I dont know much about that side of the church so i cant comment but there are some points i'll always agree with the Church on, even though to adegree i think they correspond more to actual inherent morals and commonsense rather than scripture etc.
    oh, i never wanted to be a nun...a lot of you had religious ambitions eh

    Well, that is why I considered monastic life as opposed to the regular seminary for priests. As a monk you're not really affected by the changes of Vatican II. You drop out of the money race. You have a nice tranquil place for contemplation, three meals per day, a massive library and you are sheltered from the gutter world out there.

    I guess I am too deeply involved in this gutter world already to return. Age is not really a factor per se.

    At least around here they have these "monastery weeks" here where you can can spend time in a monastery, doing the full program with the monks, working in the garden, getting up in the middle of the night. praying, cooking, eating... All that.

    Then you pretty soon find whether it is something for you or not. I was only one vow away from becoming a part of it. Times have changed since, but I guess I could still join if I decided I wanted to do it.
