comment Is there a difference between celebrating Mass for a living person and for a deceased one?
You've never heard any tradition one way or another? I've heard there's a lot more good that can be done offering a Mass for a living person, but I've got no idea where that came from

I've heard that it is 1000 times more efficacious to offer a Mass for a living person than a dead one. But that's just one of those things folks say. I'm surprised the answers don't show that, but I guess it requires research.

@lawrence btw, what do you mean by "labor on our behalf in the heavenly realm". I think if I was going to define intercede, that would be my definition.

comment How does intercession of saints and Exodus 20:3 not clash?
@LawrenceDol if that's not the anagogical sense of the verse, I'm lost as to what it is. In any event, it's not something I just made up vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cclergy/documents/…

Good answer, it is important to point out that The Church and The Kingdom are not one and the same

@matt probably (hopefully) but I think it might equally apply to Wisconsin though...

I did want to point out that I'm talking about what the Church defined about Genesis 2 and 3, not Genesis 1 and 2. Like what we have to believe concerning Adam and Eve and the Fall. What parts directly tie to Covenants (possibly a Scott Hahn original theory and not Church Teaching) and Original Sin (which is definitely pointed out in the CCC). What would be nice is a Bible with cross references outside of itself!

@ShemSeger no, purely theological. Although you can't help contrasting it with people who believe in evolution since it has set itself up as both a scientific theory and a philosophical doctrine.

@FMShyanguya thank you, that is very very helpful! I found some answers in two books as well, The Faith Explained and 50 Questions for the Natural Law. I'm going to try and work out an answer based on those as well as your links.

@svidgen OK, I'll try to get in to it with you guys after work. I'd better actually read humani generis instead of just glossing over it to answer questions here.
