More than ever I feel the need of having Thee close to me.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

What kind of Catholic are you?
BeliefNet features a 25 question quiz designed to determine the sort of Catholic you are. Hmmm....I put myself through it (even though I knew the answer). All of the questions featured a tick box range of answers and, in many cases, these were somwehat ambivalent. Don't expect a spirituality thermometer...it's more a question of 'Where do you stand in the Catholic Church'.
Here are my results.......no big whoop as they say!
You Are a Daily Rosary (Very Traditional) Catholic
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.
