Medieval mace 2
Medieval brass mace, made from an old ship's propellor.
Combat Rosary
A great gift from a brother.

A couple of years ago, a somewhat fellow neo-pagan"ish" friend whom I knew from a neo pagan forum, became a Roman Catholic after
having become increasingly interested in the "evangelical christianity" that I kind of had been telling him about.

I was flabbergasted. That was nót what I expected and I thought to myself that it must have had something to do with the culture or something. I mean: it couldn't be that the Roman Catholic church was what it said it was, surely!

Fast forward some five or more years in which he never really said much about it, although I could see major changes in his behaviour,
walk and talk. I got another Roman Catholic friend who was Theologically much wiser than I, although I had been to an evangelical Theology university and he hadn't. There came a moment that we were talking about authority, and I realised -shock horror!- that the Roman Catholic church díd have the authority directly from Christ Himself. I started checking doctrine and challenged my friends about the church, but everytime my old knowledge, the evangelical answers and ways fell short.

Now had come the time at last to see whether I would submit to proper authority and follow Christ, or remain "my own pope" and stick to mý private interpretation of scripture... I can tell you the room was wheeling around me! What would my wife, friends and family say? God be praised I chose to submit.

My wife had some trouble with it too, come to think of it!, but we saw the truth of it, so I went on to look for a rightly ordered RC church and thank God I found one. Me and my family are going to mass weekly and everything is different. It's wondrous, unspeakable....magnificent.

We're home!

Hello friends and followers,

I don't know how to put mu rules on a 'sticky' note on my DA page,
so once more, here they are:

-Do not make anything knowingly and wilfully against God or His church*.

Other than that: you may use, distribute, manipulate and make a profit
with and off anything I have in my gallery.


(*That would be the Roman catholic church, first and foremost, the Orthodox
churches second and thirdly, whichever of the "protestant" churches that
truly seek to follow Christ.)

but it doesn't seem to be available anymore. Apparently I've had it saved for a really long time, hope it's OK that I used it, if not let me know.

Thanks for sharing your awesome stock!
