Catholic Vocabulary

dictionarium

I’ve not been able to find the time to write the longer columns that I’d like to write for my church bulletin lately… to everything there is a season. The idea occurred to me today, maybe I should do a “Catholic Vocab” blurb instead each week, in which a typical word from our lexicon of Catholic jargon is presented along with a brief definition.

Ideas on words to include?

I’ll get the list started – use the comment box to submit your ideas.
