Memorial Day Weekend Kneeler Jeopardy
Since we will be gone for the weekend, here are some questions to keep you thinking:
Friday's Category: Cults and nut cases
Where did Jim Jones establish his People's Temple Church, and where did it come to a tragic end?
Saturday's Category: Sacred books
What is the Jewish prayer book containing both Hebrew and Aramaic prayers used in the Eastern European daily liturgy called?
Sunday's Category: Celebrity gossip
Where will Bishop Peter Christianson of the Diocese of Superior be celebrating the Feast of Corpus Christi this year? Hint: It's at the parish we attend while at the cabin and the parish that a cousin of mine (twice removed) used to be the pastor at years ago.
Monday's category: Statesmen
What soldier, politician and reputed (although I dispute it) relative of mine was instrumental in establishing Memorial Day?
Bonus or make up point:
What is a prie-dieu?
Demerits for using Google or other search engines! However, educated, and even not-so-educated, guesses are welcome!
St. Alex says, place your answer(s) in the form of a question in the combox, say an Our Father for the Feast of Corpus Christi and a prayer for a deceased loved one for Memorial Day, while you wait for the answer to be revealed.
Your humble prize for a correct answer(s) is the satisfaction of knowing you are a brainiac.
