From professional point of view, I'm an eternal student - I have already finished a master in Archaeology and now I study bachelor degree GIS - the computer part of everything needed to be an expert on Computer Aplications in Archaeology.

From spiritual point of view, I'm a young child in Christ (converted on Easter 2010, baptised a year later), a pilgrim to Santiago de Compostela (I have been there once and I hope it wasn't the last time), a Catholic and a member of Light-Life Movement.

And about hobbies, I'm a RPG enthusiast and I like hiking and everything I've already mentioned.

Here on SE, I've found a nice place to talk about Christianity, a source of information for my current school and I hope I'll be able to share information about my first field of study too. As a Czech patriot, I also hope my language will find its place here.

comment Why did Protestants abandon Liturgy of the Hours?
This is better than the previous accepted answer - this summarizes more reasons why modern protestants usually don't pray Liturgy of Hours. I'm almost sure that points 1 and 3 applied in the 16th century as well. However, the point of praying X times a day is so that the prayer lingered on (in a less-formal and usually less explicit manner) after each time of prayer, helping to pray constantly; first reformers likely knew this. And there are mentions about praising God by singing psalms (like Eph 5,19) and praising God seven times a day (Ps 119,164), so essense of this practice IS in Bible.

@MatthewMoisen: look at wikipedia, the answer for your question is there - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ash_Wednesday.

comment Why the difference in depiction of the cross between Catholics and Protestants?
+1. The best answer here, far better than the accepted one - explains both Catholic and Protestant position in a balanced manner, not just one of them.

Welcome here! Very good answer, especially as a first post here, and even more for such a strange question. I hope you will stay here and ask and answer more questions - we can never have enough quality authors like you!

comment Why is Christmas on December 25th?
I wanted to expand it to an answer, but I will be offline from tomorrow to New Year and I won't manage to collect all the sources and write an answer before. So I give anyone willing to do it few hints to use. First: here are few articles summarizing early Christian authors' mentions of the date of Christmas, from a translator of one of them. Second: for the time when John the Baptist was conceived, one find from Qumran proves that it must have been near autumn equinox, since Abijah's division served in the temple few days before.
