comment According to Catholic doctrine, is every woman that has an abortion automatically going to hell?
Your comment about an episcopal absolution/restitution is correct. But see Can. 1357#2: the priestly confessor may make application to the bishop.

comment How do Roman Catholics reconcile the apocalyptic sayings of Jesus with his not having returned?
If you want to mention Paul, you should do so in another question (as it was removed from this one).

comment How do Catholics explain the stance of Pope Paul VI on contraception?
The official text of Humanae Vitae doesn't include the quoted sentence.

comment According to the Catholic Church, why did Jesus co-relate end of the world and passing of the generation of His time?
Catholic version of existing question: How do Roman Catholics reconcile the apocalyptic sayings of Jesus. This is a duplicate.

comment Why didn't the universe fall apart when Jesus died?
Related, if not actually the answer: Was the Trinity still the Trinity when Jesus died? — "His body died, but his soul — with its divine nature as well as human — continued its existence. The Word did not die."

comment Why are there so many First Congregational Churches in the US?
There still exist a few Church of England churches built by the Puritans in England which do not have a patron saint, but are merely (for one example) "Plaxtol Parish Church".

@KorvinStarmast Thanks. I think your last summary bullet point nails it, actually. +1 as promised.

comment Which, in Catholic belief, is the higher form of prayer - the Lord's Prayer/Our Father, or the Eucharist?
With all due respect, I did write "apparent contradiction". To elevate that into a real contradiction and then attribute that to me is over-egging things. (That's not to say that this answer does not explain the apparent contradiction, however. But you'll get my +1 if references to me are toned down a bit. Please.)

comment Is Christmas not a christian festival
Has it not occurred to you that the assertion of October may be wrong? Anyway, an official birthday is not that unusual.

comment I am a free will baptist ordained minister, and I want to join a baptist church, do I need to be ordained again?
@Norman You may need to add "in order to serve as a minister" to the end of your question, if that is what you meant.

comment Has a Pope ever encouraged separated or civilly-divorced spouses to strive toward reunion?
It's interesting that Familiaris Consortio 83, on which CCC1649 is based, is a lot less dogmatic on reconciliation.

comment Significance of different colored vestments worn by Catholic clergy
On this side of the Atlantic, white is only used for the funerals of children (as the colour of purity). Purple is generally used, and I've been to one black requiem. When priests die, they are vested in black for burial.
