I don’t know why, but I am reading about Catholicism today. I found an old missal from before Vatican II and read the mass for the dead. It was nothing much I recognized, but I could recall parts of it from my early years going to church. Still, it was different, and it took me a good half hour to get through the whole service.
This afternoon I have been reading about breakaway Catholic groups like Pious X and FSSP, of which my youngest brother is an ordained priest. Then there are the various sedevacantists, some of whom elect their own pope. I don’t think anyone is going to figure out what is going on with the church, especially me.
Just for everyone who cares’ information, I was myself ordained in the Universal Life Church as a minister back in December of 2016 in one of my more insane moments. It didn’t cost me anything and they sent me a nice certificate. I ought to get their book, or find a copy of it in PDF online somewhere, so I know what I am even a minister of. I joined because they accept pagans like myself, even though I am becoming more like candomble lately.
Dad is watching Trump on TV now giving speeches about the election. That’s what I hear in the background anyway. He might be snoozing after lunch for all I know. I played Skyrim for a couple hours this morning, but random bastards in Whiterun kept trying to kill me for wearing an Amulet of Akatosh. Seems I am some kind of heretic or something. Heimskar wasn’t even preaching when I talked to him. Long story short I now have a house to take possession of after Uthgerd the Unbroken left me her key when she tried to kill me, so hey, a few console commands and I have a nice place to stay in the city.
This is day three for me without alcohol and I am starting to feel better about life. It was freezing outside this morning, but I stayed home today and read and studied. I think I am going to get off my ass now and do some exercise. Even the country music station didn’t make me feel like swilling beer today despite their drinking songs they always play.
