Roman Catholic ( & proud of it)

Damian Thompson finds it bizarre to be called Roman Catholic



My family go back centuries and were baptised as Roman Catholics so as traditional Catholics we are Roman.



Rose Anne is my paternal grandmother.



John Nugent is my maternal great-grandfather.

1.  What are the liturgical Rites of the Catholic Church?
There are three major groupings of Rites in the Catholic Church, the Roman Rite, the Antiochian Rite (Syria) and the Alexandrian Rite (Egypt). Later on theByzantine Rite derived as a major Rite from the Antiochian, under the influence of St. Basil and St. John Chrysostom. From these four parent rites, two-dozen liturgical Rites (Western and Eastern) have developed which are in union with the Holy See.

So my family belong to the Roman (Latin) Rite & have done for centuries. We are blessed to live in a Parish founded by St Patrick & that of my forebears. So much history.
