Is love between a man and a woman real or simply a short affair of chemical hormones followed by desperately trying to "stay together"?

Read up on https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limerence

The Bible says that God designed a man and woman to become one flesh but then why isn't this desire to remain as one flesh stronger than the desire to cheat or have affairs after the "Limerence" period? Why even give us a short period like that which confuses reality with short term happy chemicals?

Who here is in a relationship and what are your details/experience? Aren't you worried that after the limerence phase of love and high emotions that exclusivity will be a torturous struggle between you and your partner? What stops you from being paranoid of a woman's unfaithfulness when she gets "bored"?

Is "love" even a real thing? Are feelings of boredom inevitable? Do Christians simply blot that feeling out with Bible verses and God?

Women tend to want exclusive long term partners more than men but women also tend to get bored when they lose the mystery of their partner. Why are we designed like this? It feels hopeless and superficial.

Nonsense, a man attracts the kind of women he seeks. If you're the kind of guy who lives for the party, you tend to attract party girls; if you're a womanizer, you tend to attract women who crave being seduced. Therefore, a man of good character will be attractive to women who seek men of good character. The difficulty lies in the fact that it isn't easy to live that kind of life, and it takes time to engender the personality of the upstanding man without coming off as a cold manipulator.

Also, it's disingenuous to ask of unconditional, pure love of a woman. Only God can give you pure and unconditional love. Instead, she should love you as you love her: to the best of your ability, as close to God's law as possible, and as free of coercion, manipulation, and coldness as possible.

i don't get the point of romantic love if we're all monks/nuns in heaven anyway. the only answer is that its solely for procreation, which seems like a real let down. everything you ever for felt for the other person is solely so you can have babies. its practically utilitarian and it doesn't seem fair.

We all know eros with a imaginary character is wrong.

How about philia and storge? And perhaps, even agape? This is a very unknown question. Eros for imaginary things is not prevalent among christians despite what posting around here may indicate, imagine the other 3. I kinda doubt there will be a legitimate answer here, or anywhere.

For the official French Catholic bible approved by the Vatican.

In french, we were used to say this famous phrase in the same way that it's done in English : "Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

However, in the new 2013 Vatican approved french bible, it was changed to (rough translation) : "Don't let us enter in temptation, but deliver us from evil."

They explained this change by saying that it was more logical, since God can't be the author of evil and that he can't create evil. And so, they fought that it was correct to imply that God could lead people toward temptations, toward evil, when he obviously can't do evil.

So they changed it so that we ask him to not let us enter in temptation, meaning that the source of temptation comes from the outside, from Satan and his evil followers. And so God can't lead us toward temptation, but he can help us to not enter (be tempted) in temptation/sin if we ask for his help.

Anyway, I did this thread to ask you: What do you think of this change in the official french Vatican bible ? Would you see the change occur un your English Catholic bibles too ?

The new translation is more theologically and contextually accurate, but a classic is a classic, and it's the direct translation from Latin and Greek.

The liturgic prayer will remain the same for you or will it be updated?

I suppose it could change in English

By the way, in my language, we say:

"Don't let us fall in(to) temptation". Pic related, 19th century Portuguese. I don't know when exactly it came to be the mainstream Portuguese version, it was somewhere between the 16th and 18th century. I believe it's the same in Spanish.

There was also a "recent" change here from "forgive us our debts" to "forgive us our offenses just like we forgive those who have offended us"; which makes sense, but is a shallow way to get rid of a problem: the possible shallow interpretation of "debt" and the lack of a clear linguistic pointer to "sin" or "mistake" (St. Luke translates what Jesus said to "sin" for a reason: he actually knew Greek). But then we can't interpret "offense" in a shallow way. Again, a problem persists. Not that the problem is non-existent in Latin and Greek as well… But the problem is really small in any case, and it's a matter of not simply taking a word literally and shallowly.

These verses were changed here in Brazil around the SVC to be the same as in Portugal (where they were using it at least since the beginning of that century, maybe as a copy of the French version, which changed earlier). Again, I suppose it's the same in Spanish.

>I suppose it could change in English

Forgot to finish writing that part as it was a "post-script" (or abstaining from writing, as the question wasn't directed to me).

I suppose it could be changed in English, but it would be probably more likely for it to happen if as a part of a slightly bigger liturgic change. I don't even know if there are, in English, differences between the Roman Catholic version and the "mainstream version" (if there's any "national" one). The new Catholic one would replace the old mainstream one probably only in Ireland, and then I have no idea how things work there.

If there's a "classic national version", then it's more unlikely to be changed, I suppose. And I also suppose there are already discussions about the subject in the Anglosphere that are completely unknown by me.

Probably it would be better for me to have abstained from commenting on this subject. That was probably what I was going to do but forgot to delete it from the post above.

>my favorite band is Judas Priest

Well, you have good taste.

No, you don't have to give up on them, though there may come a time when you no longer enjoy them so much. I used to love Hammerfall and Manowar (both awesome bands) as a teenager, but now I find Manowar a bit too on the edgy side for my taste. I still like them, but not to the same degree. Personally, I feel metal is, of the popular genres of music, the most Christian. Others like pop and hip-hop tend to be absolutely soul-less and lead to nihilism. When it comes to Hammerfall, many of their songs are about honor, duty and sacrifice, so I'm way more comfortable enjoying them. It's not that you'll become a puritan who makes the sign of the cross in front of a metal album, it's just that some of the more teenage angsty music won't connect so much with you.

Personally, I think this anon nailed it. >>816125

Christianity is followed with the heart, not by LARPing. I'm a Catholic, and it pains me to say that some of the most heretical denominations, like Mormons and Jehovah's witnesses, are the ones who act more consistently in Christian ways, even if their doctrines are all over the place. As important as doctrine and understanding it are, they're nothing is your heart isn't in the right place.

When it comes to prayer, think of it not so much as a duty but as good quality me-time. You could kind of say it's the western version of meditation. Relax yourself and pray slowly. If you're a Cath, the rosary is great. You can stop after a pair of mysteries and carry on later. Just remember that it was never supposed to be the only prayer you pray, so pray other things too.

I still listen to metal after coming back to Christ, but I listen to it a bit less. I used to love Iron Maiden, Metallica, Judas Priest, and so much more. Nowadays I still like their music since it was a huge part of my life at one time, but I don't listen to it as frequently and I don't let the lyrics influence me. If you want a good Christian metal band, check out Theocracy. They have a kind of Dream Theater vibe and all of their songs are Christian themed.

If you've played through this DLC in which Johanka's story focuses on something of Catholic or Christian significance, spoilers alert:

She receives visions from Mary that happen to be true but ends up being trialed by the inquisition in which the outcome can result in her being lashed and complying with agreeing to never preach again, in which a miracle happens and somebody is healed by Mary.

The other is sentencing to death by the inquisitor.

What are your thoughts on the storyline and do you think it was overtly biased against the church in any ways? If so then how etc?

Why do clergymen needs fine robes and gold threads? Gold chalices, extraordinary and expensive cathedrals for their churches?

Not really the best motivation tbh


We do, nobody looks. Lukewarm Catholics exist for the same reason Orthos are low af in america and the world in general: people don't care enough to try.


>Maybe cradle Catholics don't realize this, but I (and many others) have never considered or even thought about Catholicism until anons on here got me to research and consider it. I've had little interaction with Catholics prior to attending my first Mass, and I live in a state with a 20% Catholic population. The only churches that existed to me were Protestant ones, and the only times I heard about Catholicism were regarding the sexual abuse crisis. If /pol/ is going to flock to any particular denomination, it's going to be what's REALLY familiar to them, such as the denom they were raised or a more conservative variant of it (IFB, LCMS, etc.).

I was raised Catholic but almost became protestant until the way people talked about the Solas rubbed me the wrong way, even as someone who knew jack about Christianity. Prior to that, I sort of just went to PSR and Mass because I had to, and didn't really care. Then I became a Marxist Athiest in early Highschool, an Alt-Righter in Late Highschool and early college, and finally a Devout Catholic. bit of a rollercoaster to say the least.

I was initially evangelized by Presbyterians and Methodists though. I had contemplated both Catholicism and Orthodoxy, but found myself more drawn to Catholicism in the end. The Orthodox just seemed closed off to a negative degree, and their views on the Church fathers were bizarre to me, having read St. Augustine's works.

Russia is declining how? Population wise? Sure, Russia is moribund, but Russia has the natural resources to change all that on a dime. There's a boom on the horizon for both central Russia and inland China just simply because if someone can get organized (and it looks like Xi might do just that with his BRI project) they have the technology to finally exploit the tagia, effectively a land-bound sea of timber, oil, fresh water, and minerals.

The only other group on earth that has access to an equivalent potential are the Canadians, and Canada is too heavily invested in the maritime economy to realize the potential.

Hi, friends. I wish to ask of something that has been bothering me for a long time. I am Scottish and was born to a family which had Catholicism on my mother’s side (as a result of Irish roots) whereas my father’s side was Protestant/Agnostic. I was baptised as a Catholic and also made my first Holy Communion and I was very interested in the word of God as a child. However, at around 10, I became disillusioned with Catholicism and became agnostic. I refused to partake in my confirmation.

For the past few years, I have grown to respect Catholicism again and have partaken in many Catholic activities. I did not make my confirmation though as a result of my aforementioned rebelliousness (which I regret immensely).

I feel as though I’m in the purgatory of Catholicism. I’m sort of Catholic but not really. I’m like a discarded Catholic who never passed the final quality assurance test.

Basically, is it over for me and have I ruined it all for myself? Would I have to go through an adult conversion programme to realise and become a full and proper member of the Roman Catholic Church?

Thank you.

I've been told FSSP and SSPX priests do one on one mentoring for confirmation so if you are already familiar you can get confirmed as soon as a bishop visits your town. Apparently they also take things very seriously and will provide great teaching.

If the leather jacket is $150 because it’s well made and will last for a long time, that’s fine. If it’s $150 because of some Jewish brand name, then no. You should attempt to avoid branding yourself at all times though.

So many people will put on a suit and tie, or even full black tie dress, to go to some completely meaningless entertainment like a concert or an opera, but then they show up to mass in jeans and a T-shirt. What is wrong with these people? Are they just too lazy to put on nice clothes for mass? Do they just not take the mass seriously? I mean, I guess it is pretty hard to take mass seriously when you’re part of a Novus Ordo congregation and have to sing cheesy Protestant hymns and listen to half-naked women pound an out-of-tune piano like you’re in a liberal Baptist church, but that’s still not an excuse.

Branding is cucked anyway, you're paying money to be a walking billboard. Avoid huge flashy logos whenever possible.

For what? Since Maronites are fully in communion with Rome but still has influences of the East, our artwork reflects it.

Mar Nimatullah is my favorite

>Benedict Joseph Labre was truly eccentric, one of God’s special little ones. Born in France and the eldest of 18 children, he studied under his uncle, a parish priest. Because of poor health and a lack of suitable academic preparation he was unsuccessful in his attempts to enter the religious life. Then, at age 16, a profound change took place. Benedict lost his desire to study and gave up all thoughts of the priesthood, much to the consternation of his relatives.

>He became a pilgrim, traveling from one great shrine to another, living off alms. He wore the rags of a beggar and shared his food with the poor. Filled with the love of God and neighbor, Benedict had special devotion to the Blessed Mother and to the Blessed Sacrament. In Rome, where he lived in the Colosseum for a time, he was called “the poor man of the Forty Hours devotion” and “the beggar of Rome.” The people accepted his ragged appearance better than he did. His excuse to himself was that “our comfort is not in this world.”

>On April 16, 1783, the last day of his life, Benedict dragged himself to a church in Rome and prayed there for two hours before he collapsed, dying peacefully in a nearby house. Immediately after his death, the people proclaimed him a saint.

Benedict Joseph Labre was canonized by Pope Leo XIII in 1881. His Liturgical Feast Day is April 16.

Is anyone else shocked with how quickly these people managed to infest and subvert Christianity? Shit like this was absolutely unthinkable 20 years ago

Is stealing memes a sin? Cause I'm stealing that Christ-chan.

Instead of despairing and hoping you will get a chance to repent before you have any ither chance to sin, just do what you do is right. Stop being promiscuous, stop watching pornography, stop sexualising everything, confess, go to mass, marry a girl and fix your life.

No excuses, no procastrinating, stop the huge perversion you have fallen into. Get into some hobby, get some actual friends without sexualising them, etc. Your wildest dreams are as honorable as the wildest dreams of a pedophile.

Constantinople has separated itself from the Orthodox Church. No other Church recognizes the autocephaly of Ukraine. They are schismatics no longer within Orthodoxy. Moscow is now the center of the holy Orthodox Catholic Church. Submit.

By modern standards orders like the Templars or the Teutonic Knights would essentially be considered Armed Security Guards who's job is to protect missionaries, pilgrims as well as churches/relics from persecutors (And especially from terrorists, jihadists or suicide bombers).

So why don't we create Catholic based both Armed and Unarmed Security groups dedicated to doing this once again?

Whether its paid or unpaid, if unpaid we can muster faithful or parish members who have experience (Or want to get some) that are willing to volunteer as well depending.
