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's more a question of 'Where do you stand in the Catholic Church'. 

Here are my 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.

  1. Great quiz! My results were the same as yours, but I think I am more the description below, at the moment anyway, apart from the fact it doesn't mention I love the rosary the best, of all prayers.

    You Are a Divine Office (Moderately Traditional) Catholic
    The Second Vatican Council was much needed, as far as you're concerned, but you see no reason to push the church further in the direction of change, as many progressives urge. You like the dynamic combination of the traditional approach toward doctrine with the opening of the church to the world that Pope John Paul II (your favorite pope) represented. As far as liturgy is concerned, a reverent Mass in the vernacular is your favorite, as is a vernacular hymn with a feeling for the transcendent such as "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence." When Nicole Kidman returned to her childhood Catholicism and regular Mass attendance, you were thrilled.

  2. Trad for me and my lovely wife, Kathy (Moving Onto The Past).

  3. Ditto, though a mite surprised given a couple of my answers (and you shan't know what they were).

  4. I got the same result! No real surprises here..
