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 Can Catholics choose to be baptized by immersion?
There's even better reason: Eastern Churches, including those in full unity with the pope (e.g. Greek Catholic Church, Melchite Catholic Church etc.) immersion is the regular form of baptism. About Western Catholicism, pouring is the regular form; I don't know what Canon law says about exceptions in this way (perhaps I'll try to find it later).

comment How much are psalms and other prayers from Bible understood as actual prayer in Protestantism?
I'll wait a little longer before accepting it (if some other good answer arrives), but it helped me. From Catholic view, "prayer" can be either "liturgical prayer" (~"worship" for Protestants) where one prays as a limb of mystical Body of Christ (i.e. Church), or "private prayer" (~"prayer" in Protestant sense) where one talks with God as an individual. This causes lots of confusion, since sense for liturgical prayer vanished from most of Protestant traditions; some even omit common Lord's prayer during worship, or at least don't consider it a prayer.

comment The Popes Prophecy of St. Malachy
@Ries: "some" is important here. I represent official Catholic position, but AFAIK most Christians prefer this interpretation as well.

comment What substitutes for prayers for the Pope's intentions during sede vacante?
Thanks for pointing out that we pray for "the intention" of the pope, I corrected it in the question. The answer itself is not bad, it's logical and even priests usually don't know here. It took me quite a lot of google-work to prove it is not true. Well, it could be deduced from Catholic view on the Communion of saints, but it might be easier to google it or to ask the Apostolic Penitentiary and translate the answer from Latin. See my answer.

comment Do any Protestant denominations practice meditative or contemplative prayer?
Thanks, I wanted to ask similar question quite a long time ago, but I didn't dare to really ask. However, it might be useful to exclude groups on the borderline with Catholicism, such as oecumenical community in Taizé, whose prayers are mainly meditative.

If I understood how it answers my question, singing a musical version of for example Psalm 23 is not considered a prayer of praise, but... what? Just singing? [Something-other-than-prayer] of praise? The answer is not bad, but misses my point. Representing just a part of protestants is no problem, you seem to represent the mainstream, so it's completely OK.

comment Why did Protestants abandon Liturgy of the Hours?
It seems as a plausible reason why most Protestants finally abandoned Breviary, and and the same time it seems completely implausible to be true, rather based on misunderstanding. Since this web is more about beliefs of various denominations, it definitely owes +1. Other reason is that it might help us to uncover one of the roots of mutual misunderstanding between Catholics and Protestants. I asked a question on this topic: How much are psalms and other prayers from Bible understood as actual prayer in Protestantism?

comment The Popes Prophecy of St. Malachy - the city of seven hills
The city of seven hills usually refers to Rome, though many other cities fit.
