Y'all Do I need to have a physical rosary to pray the rosary?? Or is it mainly for mind to muscle connection while doing the prayer??

A Tiki bar but instead of appropriating Oceanic cultures and religions, it's all Garbled Catholic Iconography.

It kind of throws me when Americans get fixated on Japanese media treating Christianity as a form of witchcraft because, like, American media does that all the time, too; it’s just that it’s usually Catholicism in particular that gets that treatment.
I’ve seen a lot of American media – often but not always horror media – that treats Catholic religious paraphernalia as magic items, and Catholic observances as magic spells, and that seems to be under the impression that all Catholic clergy are trained in the art of wizardry.
I mean, I understand that to a devout Protestant there’s probably a huge distinction there, but from the outside it looks a whole lot like people getting worked up about Foreign Media(tm) treating priests like Dungeons & Dragons warlocks while their own media cheerfully does the exact same thing.

also Salma Hayek talking about how her and Barry helped each other with their lines even though they didn't have scenes together because they're both dyslexic and that's how they bonded is so-
and Salma Hayek saying Irish people are the closest to Mexican-ness that she's encountered because they both share Catholic guilt is also just-

One of my favorite “kids and religion” stories is still about my cousin and his mom. He was like seven or eight at the time, and had given up McDonald’s for Lent. He had a really bad day at school, and was crying, and my aunt was trying to cheer him up; she said God wouldn’t mind if he broke the Lenten vow once, and come on, they could do it together, just the two of them. And he stops crying, looks at her, and goes “Oh my God, you’re the devil”

Catholicism had something like a purge day, and all the sins committed that day where supposedly ignored and you could go to Heaven. All crimes were still illegal but not considered sins.

Some lovers carve their names in trees. But in this case, some devout follower of the Guadalupe decided to give this one a sample of motherly love instead. Ron Mader | Flickr CC BY-SA 2.0

Thesis: the fact that the thematic cornerstones of giant robot media are a. gratuitous Roman Catholic imagery, and b. uncomfortably eroticised body horror is not an incongruous combination if you’re at all familiar with the history of Roman Catholic religious art.
