We had a busy week this week over at Visits to Candyland.

We started off with a discussion on the Early Church Fathers and the Eucharist. I thought we were discussing the EFCs recognizing Christ in the Eucharist, but one of my opponents was actually arguing that the EFCs believed differently than the Council of Trent.

That lead to a discussion of Hebrews and John 6 which also had some eye opening revelations including the one that blew me completely away- that some Christians view going to church as a good work and can thus jeopardize your salvation... or something like that.

I wrapped up with some insights I got from how other Christians view Catholicism.

All the discussions were heated in parts, but there were some friendly moments as well. We certainly covered a lot of ground.

One of my favorite saints, St. Monica, had a feast day last week and I blogged a bit about that.

Also Robert Schindler died this week. He was the father of Terry Schiavo. She was the young woman the nation watched legally starve to death a few years ago.

Bill Luse summarizes my feelings on the Mr. Schindler's death exactly.

UPDATE: I can't believe I forgot this but I am blogging with a few other Catholic bloggers you might be familiar with over at Catholic Against Obamacare. We already have quite a few followers on blogger and twitter - so check us out!
