comment Are all forms of giving equally morally 'good' according to the Catholic church?
I would consider what the poor person does to be part of the circumstances. My thought on the tax break was that the motive seems selfish.

comment Is it justifiable to kill an innocent person with the following conditions?
Since you mention etopic pregnancy the Catholic Church sees one treatment as moral. That is the removal of the tube, the reason being that it is not a direct attack on the baby and the mother will die because the tube will rupture. Directly killing the baby, or removing just the baby are immoral. I believe that killing the innocent would violate conditions 1 and 2 in the linked article.

comment What does the Bible say about praying too much?
@DexterHuinda I am clearly not being clear. The rosary, prayed properly is not repetitious. Are you familiar with for example focusing on breathing for meditation? That is what the part that may be mistaken as repetitious is. It is just a focusing aid.

@DexterHuinda As I understand it the repitition is a focusing aid, the real prayer is the meditation - or should be.

comment What does the Bible say about praying too much?
@DexterHuinda The rosary is meant to be a form of meditation, when you say it you are meant to reflect on the mysteries.

+1 It took me a while to figure out why this was so different to Miserere Nobis (used during the Communion rite)

Hi, I think that your question, as written will be closed as Pastrol Advice. I have suggested an edit to focus on the questions in it.

Yes, I have seen both in Roman Catholic churches. Not facing each other too often, but I have seen it.

comment According to Roman Catholic orthodoxy, is Jesus Christ a human person, a divine person, both, or none?
That paragraph states that Jesus is true God and true man. I would interpret that as both human and divine. I would read the part in bold as explaining that the two natures are inseparable.

comment Can a Roman Catholic be re-catechized and re-confirmed?
Another option may be a cathechism course. My parish is currently running one. You may look and see if there is something similar in yours.

comment How did the wise men (Magi) know the country where the new king was born?
If they knew that verse I would expect that they would go to Bethlehem, rather than Jeruselum.

comment Why is Jesus looking on an oddly standing stone?
One of the temptations in the desert was to turn stones into bread. I would say that it is related to this.

comment What is the significance of Lamech's boast?
Noah was a descendant of Seth's. Lamech was a descendant of Cain's. This Lamech is not the same Lamech as Noah's father. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
