dh wants a wedding ring for xmas - he had his cut off 15 years ago - anyway this is v. much of a surprise to me.

dh is agnostic. so the blessing of the ring doesn't matter to him - mine is blessed

so do i go to back of church and ask priesty to bless the ring? dh isn't bothered and i don['t know if i am

i know its not important but any replies would help

You could dip it in a bit of holy water.

If it doesn't matter to either of you, then no need to. I am loving the term weirdo catholics.

MrsMattie Thu 23-Oct-08 10:33:26

Don't understand. Does it matter to you, is that it?

Tortington Thu 23-Oct-08 10:37:14

im not sure if it matters to me or if it should - its not my ring

think i'll washit in some holy water as per cornsilks suggestion grin

Those Mary shaped holy water bottles do come in useful sometimes.

Do you have to bless wedding rings? I never knew that.

I think it's ok. But I'm not Catholic. I'm agnostic.

Am really just posting to say I never knew that wedding rings were blessed. <<less than helpful emoticon>>

Tortington Thu 23-Oct-08 10:44:01

well i'm a weirdo catholic - it was rather a play on how we are viewed by those who aren't purple.

Tortington Thu 23-Oct-08 10:44:47

was going to go to the machester one - tie it in with a xmas visit to Oldham- but i will be going up in new year - so am off to the london one.

Agree it's what most non catholics think anyway.

MrsMattie Thu 23-Oct-08 10:45:19

Do Catholics not have a sense of humour, then? hmm grin

childrenofthecornsilk Thu 23-Oct-08 10:45:45

nickytwoooohtimes Thu 23-Oct-08 10:48:00

You see, I read 'weirdo catholics' and just thought "ooh, a thread for me!"
Lets face it, we are a bit weird to those not used to genuflecting and invoking saints at the slightest provocation.

JJ Thu 23-Oct-08 10:48:03

Next you'll be telling me Christmas is some sort of religious celebration.

nickytwoooohtimes Thu 23-Oct-08 10:51:59

Don't be ridiculous JJ!

childrenofthecornsilk Thu 23-Oct-08 10:52:37
