I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment How is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary celebrated within the domestic church?
This is quite a different question than the one you were proposing. This one seems to take as a premise what would have been the answer to your proposed question (that I said would work here). In this format isn't this sort of self answering? The question states "it's not usually observer", yet the title is asking "how is it celebrated"? Do you indent a question about how it should be celebrated? Is so according to who?

comment How is it just that Jesus, an innocent, would be punished for our sins?
I addressed the issue of why Jesus rather than somebody else in an answer to a tangentially related question about the significance of his death.

comment Does Paul ever actually quote Jesus anywhere?
You can add as many weasel words as you like—as if the truth could be buried in lawyer-speak—but this is just factually inaccurate. Unless reading and cross referencing the NT was not part of your search, "I can find no place" rings pretty hollow because Luke confirms a number of specific sayings. Furthermore the question did not even ask for quotes reaffirmed by third witnesses, only whether Paul quoted Jesus, making this answer patently false no matter how you read it.

comment How has the position of the Catholic Church on drugs changed over time?
I'm not sure this even answers the question that was asked. One data point tells you nothing about the delta between that point and another. Also it doesn't really matter what Galatians or Revelations says about the matter—that only clues us in as to what a Scriptural view _should be_—as the question is about what the Roman Catholic church's position was and is (and specifically if it has changed).
