Author Essay

Why Do Catholics Do That? A Guide to the Teachings and Practices of the Catholic Church, by Kevin Orlin Johnson, Ph.D., describes the various traditions and customs inherent in the Catholic faith.  One section of the book that I found very interesting was the significance of numbers.  Many numbers have very obvious significance, for instance seven means a complete series, whether it is the seven sacraments or the seven deadly sins.  The symbolic explanation that I found most intriguing was that of the number five.  The author asserts that the number is actually quite "naughty," because it is through out five senses that we find temptation.  Who knew?
