- Since St Pius X the Church somewhat disapproved the Rosary during the Mass

do you have a movie or movies in mind?  i don't recall ever seeing a movie in which people were fingering their rosaries during Mass, though it certainly happened in real life.  i recall movies in which people were praying Rosaries after confession [Moonstruck, for example, which is an Eighties movie] and of course nuns/sisters and monks/brothers in full habits wearing rosaries around their waists, funeral scenes of the deceased with rosary wrapped around hands and of mourners telling their beads.

- Most Catholics ate fish when they fished it (outside of the Western world even now). The real Catholic identity was vegetable (beans, pees, lentil) on Fridays and on other days too except may be Sunday

you're right that people usually eat fish when they catch them, but public schools have served fish on fridays from at least the Fifties to the present, not having gotten the memo after vatican II, and it seemed to me that most Catholics did eat fish on fridays back in the day, though of course macaroni and cheese was another option besides beans and rice, etc.

- Ashes can be seen in foreheads on Ash Wednesdays, to move the ash distribution to Sundays was temporary change in the fifties

- and fortunately recently more and more nuns and priests can be seen  in habit

true about habits and ashes -- last year people were wondering what was wrong with VP Biden's forehead on Ash Wednesday.  :laughing:

Moral: distrust the media, be vigilant against the news.



it's a curious thing how, although some people in hollywood have always disliked Catholicism, they've loved to show the rituals and customs in movies, and have usually done so accurately, pre-damn brown.  er, dan brown.  and it wasn't only Catholics who went to see Song of Bernadette, The Nun's Story, The Cardinal, The Bells of St. Mary's, The Sound of Music, etc.
