This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."
Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

"If you want what we have, do what we do. And if you do what we do, you will have what we have."
From Fr Tim, but I think it comes from AA and works as well for enjoying the fruits of a Christian walk.
Also, again Fr Tim, speaking about the spectrum of liberal to conservative Catholics:
The Main Thing is to keep the Main Thing, the Main Thing.
This is what we are about:
We plant seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted.
knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produce effects beyond our abilities.
We cannot do everything
and realizing that gives us a sense of liberation.
This enables us to do something and to do it very well.
It may be incomplete but it is a beginning, a step along the way,
an opportunity for God's grace to enter and do the rest.
We may never see the end results
but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker.
We are workers, not master builders,
ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets of a future not our own.
~Archbishop Oscar Romero
