Maureen Anne Teresa Kelly was born in 1957 and was baptized at Most Precious Blood Church in Denver. Her first confession was said at St. Pius X Church in Dallas, and she received her first Holy Communion at Holy Ghost Church in Houston. In parochial school she won a glow-in-the-dark plastic Madonna for selling Holy Childhood Christmas Seals and was a member of the Junior Altar Rosary Society, an organization of young Catholic girls dedicated to straightening church pews and dusting kneelers. Our preoccupation with sin is the central difference between us and everyone else. We are consumed with it; and why not? These blemishes on our souls can keep us out of Heaven, put us in Purgatory for aeons, or, God forbid, hurl us into Hell for ever and ever amen.

Lisa said: Another hilarious look at my life - growing up Catholic is right on the money. I liked the gentle humor of this book-not infinitely funny after all, but honest, with a self-deprecating sense of chatting among friends. I liked the illustrations, quirky questions (how near is a near occasion for sin?), questionnaires (match these martyrs to their martyrdoms), and the gentle parodies of church vacations or church magazines. But I wished the book had been truly updated, rather than just updated to the Millennium.

Hilarious. Catholic school attendees will be roaring!

Anyone born into the pre Vatican II and early post Vatican II Catholic Church will find this book an absolute hoot! I had lost my original and had to buy it again! Everything you remember is lovingly and humorously accounted for: uniforms, pagan babies, nuns, and my favorite "Fr. What a Waste".
Broadraven
A must book for anyone who has endured and survived Catholic school. Love this book and have bought several for friends.
Moonworm
This book left me laughing out loud for pages and pages! Having gone through Catholic school, I can so relate to everything the author brings back. Those poor Nuns and we poor kids!! Too funny. I have recommended this book to several friends. What great memories!

In under 150 pages four enthusiastic products of Catholic upbringing
present a delightfully nostalgic--if irreverent--expose for the enlightenment and edification of the non-initiated. In humorously succinct fashion they offer readers this handy-dandy instruction book with explicit directions--a holy How To manual for promoting moral rectitude in a wayward world. Are you considering upgrading from some lesser faith? No matter if you are an Atheist, Protestant or Buddhist, this cleverly all-inclusive guide prepares future converts for all sacred events--from Baptism to Bingo. Even if you were not privileged to GROW UP CATHOLIC treat it as an abbreviated but highly palatable free pass on the Soul Train from Baltimore.

Written with deep fondness by four Catholic School survivors (two gals, two guys) this collection of vivid memories and neo-scandalous satire provides entertaining reading for anyone remotely curious about RC traditions--especially meaningful for those in danger of beatific backsliding. This wonderful book answers all those questions which outsiders never dared ask directly, boldly treating topics undreamed of by heathens. Boasting many modern literary aids the text is enlivened by b/w photos of real people, exacting diagrams, cartoon-friendly sketches and the ever-popular Match Up quiz format. If you think you know or remember so much, challenge yourself--to not laugh out loud!

even though these people grew up on a different coast, a lot of what they did and went through is the same thing i went through going to school on the west coast, i am glad i finally bought this book, i am going to pass it on to other people who went to catholic school.
This book covers all those rather "Silly" traditions, clothing styles, liturgies, educational ways, CCD, etc. that Adults encountered as they were growing up in the Roman Catholic Church. Pleasant memories that are hard to forget.
