comment Praying the Liturgy of the Hours in private; out loud
I think this comes down to individual preference (are you looking for some kind of official guidance from Rome?) I do, because it is more meaningful to me that way.

comment Are Dinosaurs mentioned in the Bible?
Isaiah 43:20 in the ESV has "jackals" for "dragons" (KJV), so I don't think it applies. Most likely a mistake in the KJV.

comment How do young earth creationists reconcile the age of the universe with the speed of light, and visible distant objects?
The problem is not just age but history. Did God create photons that appear to show us stars that never existed, colliding galaxies that never collided?

comment Mental Illness vs. Demon Possession
+1 for a good question. Also see Matt. 17:14-18 where Jesus cures what appears to be epilepsy by casting a demon out of the boy.

comment What is God waiting for before He ends the world?
If Jesus himself doesn't know the answer to this one (Matt. 24:36), then no one on this site does :-)

comment When does the Pope speak ex cathedra?
ex cathedra is latin for "from the chair" - so, whenever he is sitting down :-)

comment What is transubstantiation?
Catholics probably would not be happy with the term 'masquerades'. But yes, if what you mean is that after consecration the Body retains all of the outward and visible properties of the bread.

Calvin, too. He refers to Mary as the holy Virgin, although he argues the Biblical evidence is inconclusive

comment How do Roman Catholics understand salvation in light of Romans 3&4?
@Monkey Certainly, and most protestant wouldn't deny that a true faith is necessarily accompanied by works. If you want to press protestants on how they interpret James, I'm sure that would make a good question. But this question is a very specific one about how to interpret a particular passage, which you have not even mentioned.
