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 and a source of information for my job. As a Czech patriot, I also hope my language will find its place here.

comment Who believes the incarnation and resurrection wouldn't have happened without Mary's faith?
The Incarnation part is part of official doctrine of the Catholic Church and so undisputed. The ressurection part seems to be unknown and thus undisputed too, even though few would agree.

comment What is the earliest written surviving liturgy?
Didaché contained some rules how to celebrate Eucharist - it's a step forward from Bible records of the Last Supper, but still a long way to something like the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom. Also, "Sub tuum praesidium" was recorded as a part of Coptic liturgy around 250 AD, so there must be some written liturgical texts from this time.

comment Is the Body of Christ the same as the Bride of Christ?
For a Catholic perspective, it's important to remember that Body of Christ is meant as "Church" (the mystical Body), not the "Eucharist" (the real Body). I think this should be included in the answers as a side note, just to avoid confusion.

comment Is there any protestant method how to deal spiritual dryness?
@PaulA.Clayton: what is your point? You just assure that grace and reply to it through deeds is enough regardless of whether a Christian feels God's grace somehow or not? Or do you maintain that if someone does what you say spiritual dryness is very unlikely or even impossible? The second idea was proven wrong by experience of many Christians (not only mystics, who usually experience the worst dryness), and of people from Bible like Job, or, according to some interpretation of "My God, my God, why have you deserted me?", even Christ.

accepted Why do those who take Matthew 23:9 literally not emphasize 23:8 and 23:10 similarly?

+1 anyway, because this is a good answer. With that extension, it would have a good chance to be accepted.

Your experience seems to be more temporary "tiredness" than long term "dryness". Anyway, this is plain "just hold on". The other answer is much closer to what I expect: it explains why spiritual dryness often comes despite of all the retreats and Bible meditation.

A good example. Brief discussion of whether this view is known and more or less accepted by few denomination, broader current within Protestantism or most Protestants will earn +1 (and perhaps acceptation, if no better answer arrives in a week or two).

+1, especially for original Greek words. If I understand it well, calling someone "master" or "mister" (not "doctor" - Vulgate uses "magister" in Matthew 23:8-10, but "doctor" in Ephesians 4:11) in non-spiritual context is like calling your own daddy "father" (which no one forbids), but it would be considered bad in spiritual context?
