Oh that dismays me... Not that I've been using it as much as I wish I did, but still.

Radio 4's Neverwhere

Maybe I've just missed the thread on this, but is anybody else following BBC Radio 4's dramatisation of Neverwhere?

I listened to the first episode this evening, and found it quite enjoyable, as well as duly sinister. Also, the cast is fantastic.

He's 76, so on the older side. That said, it was an old pope who instigated the biggest shake up in recent Church history, so age doesn't have to mean anything!

Alea, part of the scenerio given was that life IS difficult to afford. To then say to follow your dream because money isn't important just sounds to me like entitled nonsense as it sounded like a blanket statement. I'm sorry for over-reacting to it.

No, but our previous letting agency wanted us out of our flat at the end of January, so I needed to find a new place to live out here. So far it is far better than where we were and the landlord is actually attentive to issues and deals with them.

Okay, I'm not understanding why that was heresy?

Re: Yes, I know Google is my friend, but I'd rather ask you.

If I recall correctly, the wine was stopped for common use to combat a heresy which stated that unless you partook of both elements, communion was not valid. The wine was chosen to be withheld instead of the bread because if you drop it, bread is easier to pick up. Then, a few hundred years later at...

Well, it's consubstantial, partaking of both the substance of the bread and wine as well as the substance of Christ, in the same way that Christ is consubstantial with the Father. Christ and the Father are distinct from each other, but they partake of the same substance (thus Christ is begotten of t...

To what Mich said, i'd add that, if you are baptized "in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost", and if you read the catholic Creed ( here as Apostle's Creed ), understand it and agree with it, you can take the communion. Of course, the whole process of understanding the Creed and agre...
