Oh. Well if you had said this was a US publication...

comment What does “bowels of mercies” mean?
It might help to spell out the initialisms, I think.

We don't do sigs. Web addresses go in the user profile.

comment What did Jesus mean by seventy times seven?
@curiousdannii This question specifically asks for Catholic teaching, which is conspicuously absent in the other question and its answers. That may not preclude this being a duplicate, or a merge candidate, but a kneejerk reaction to close may benefit from consideration.

comment What are the major Christian Festivals
Mardi Gras is a Christian festival called Shrove Tuesday, when sins are shriven before Lent. "Mardi Gras" comes from using up food which should not be consumed in Lent (or at least, on Ash Wednesday) -- which is where the British custom of pancakes comes from: various things can be used as fillings.

comment What pronoun do Catholics typically use to refer to the Eucharist?
The pronouns in this answer refer to the Lord, not to the wafers or wine specifically. I think it's right that pronouns are not used for the sacrament itself. "I'm just going to put him in the tabernacle" is facetious; "I'm just going to put it (or this) in the tabernacle" might deny the supernatural nature of a sacrament. "I'm just going to put the Sacrament in the tabernacle" would be far more common.

comment How do Catholics view physical and digital copies of the Bible?
There are still two questions here. I am fairly sure the one about tablet/electronic devices is objectively answerable.

comment How do Catholics view physical and digital copies of the Bible?
There are still three questions here: on digital bibles; on handling the bible; and on approved translations. All are only tangentially related.

comment Vatican approved miracles
@MattGutting Actually, I would say Yes, in general. Miracles are important in the progress to canonisation, and the Holy See does pronounce on authentic visions and associated miracles. I suspect everything is reported in the Acta, but they only go back to 1870ish, are in Latin and don't easily show classifications like "Miracles recognised".

comment Why did the Roman soldiers compete to possess Jesus' clothes?
It strikes me that removing the two words "blood soaked" would do wonders for this question.

comment What is the Orthodox canon?
Looks to me like it's the same as Catholicism because the canon was settled before the Great Schism, so it's something which is shared.

comment How do Catholics explain the stance of Pope Paul VI on contraception?
@RadzMatthewCoBrown Free from doctrinal and moral errors. The text at the page is not the text of Humanae vitae (and, to be fair, doesn't represent itself as such: but neither should anyone else represent it as the text).
