Didache - book
#1
Pax et Bonum!  I just learned about the book Didache which is the writings of the Apostolic Fathers on Christian sacraments and procedures - catechism.  It seems from what I know about the earlier Rules of Life for Religious Communities, that the Rules are rooted in these early writings of the Apostolic Fathers.  This means over the years we have lost so much of the essence of the Rules and Christian procedures and perhaps the farther/sooner we return back to recapture this same essence, the better off we will be!  I didn't know that Christians started to fast on Wed and Fri just so they could have a separate fast day from the Jews, which was Mon and Thurs.  Also, it was customary for the Christians to pray the Our Father 3 times a day - which makes me laugh when I think of the feminist nuns who want to pray the Our Mother...haha - yuk!  Has anyone heard of the Didache?  Any comments?  God bless, angeltime :rolleyes:

I've read it and had the same observations as you.  I also noticed it mentions not to procure an abortion, which goes in the face of many (Pelosi comes to mind) in our society who think the Church's ban on abortion is a recent thing.
