Sistagata:
If you're gonna talk about god, and saints, could you tell me what you know about demons? Do you talk to any of them, the same way you talk to Jesus? What do they normally like to talk about?

My favourite saint is St Strombola.  She's patron saint of diarrhoea, explosive vomiting and all kinds of violent and unpleasant discharges.  ;)

This is so awkward...

Sister, have you read any of the responses?

I have indeed. And I feel they are only because the people making them are sad and lonesome and outside of Jesus' shining presence!

Sad and lonely like this pope:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_John_XII
Quote
After mutilating some of his enemies, he again was the effective ruler of Rome. Sending Otgar, Bishop of Speyer to the emperor, he attempted to come to some accommodation with Otto, but before anything could come of it, John XII died on 14 May 964. According to Liudprand of Cremona, John died whilst enjoying an adulterous sexual encounter outside Rome, either as the result of apoplexy, or at the hands of an outraged husband.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Sister... :smileshake:

You must be around Jesus' shinning presence 24/7, yet you've called me, sassy, snarky, sad and lonesome.  :snicker:

Why is there so much hate in your heart? I'm sure Jesus wouldn't like that. Am I, are we, disturbing your holy nerves? 

Just to stir a little more stuff inside of you, you should know that without Jesus' shinning presence I am at peace, and I will never call you names, not because I fear going to the place god sends people who try to hurt others by calling them sassy, snarky, sad and lonesome, but because I simply don't feel like it...today...(I don't know about tomorrow though.) :levitate:

Are we certain that the Sister is for real, and not Old Git or Bad Penny or someone else?  Something just doesn't ring true.

You see raps, those other 5 commandments basically say it's ok to be a douche as long as it's the poor , the gays, or anyone else who doesn't agree with your narrow minded views that you treat with utter animosity.

I'm as sure as is possible that the SisterAgatha account is not a sock puppet of anybody on this site. Whether the account was created by an actual Catholic sister cannot be determined, but indications are that it is associated with a particular Catholic institution in the United States.

OK, thanks.  Just that something seems strange.  I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

I can confirm that SisterAgnes is not a sock puppet as I originally suggested/expected. And you're right (s)he is as much a nun as I am.
