As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Role of Rocco in RCC theology

    This coming Friday is the official Feast of Rocco in the RCC. Processions of the statue or idol of Rocco are made through the streets, devout RC Rank and File pin money on to the statue.

    The teaching about Rocco is portrayed in "The Godfather" as the background of the scene where DeNiro assassinates Don Fanucci.

    What is the current role of Rocco in Catholicism? Is this valuable lesson with the priests, music, idols, still taught to this day?

    Apparently the "Patron Saint" of plagues and infectious diseases.

      When I looked this up, it said it was held in Fort Lee is that a town or an army base. You mentioned the Godfather I laughed when I saw one of the activities was the dunking of police.

      He appears to be a busy saint if wiki is right. As well as the patron saint of plagues he is also responsible for dogs, falsely accused people, bachelors, and several other things.

      I wonder if bachelors, plagues and dogs are the responsibility of one saint, if that has any meaning.

        I really don't understand the RCC's "patron saint" dogmas. There is nothing in Scripture about Rocco at all, much less his supposed special duties in regards to plague, and the necessity of having processions of the statue of Rocco, etc. in order to appease the saint and get him in gear to do his supposed duty.

        The RCC sounds like it was just dreamt of to impress people, although i'm more perplexed instead of impressed

          It's all artificial. Some of the STORIES of the "SAINTS" are impressive, However, there's nothing Biblical at all about petitioning them about anything.

            Well there is nothing in scripture about praying to these dead saints either. It is just more pagan ideas that they couldn't throw out.

              More distractions from focussing on Jesus.

                I just don't see that much difference between the Rocco teachings in the RCC with the processions and the music, and the Hindu teachings about have processions for Ganesh. The music might be different and Hindus generally have a different appearance than Roman Catholics, but when it comes down to it, its about parading a statue through the busy streets while the rank and file are impressed.

                  I read its origins started in the early church because "unions" each had their own pagan god.. so as Christianity grew they eliminated the gods and replaced them with patron saints
