"The age of casual Catholicism is over, the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident but instead we must be Catholics by conviction."

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.
