ALL CHEESE EVERYTHING. And you're doing it because you're SUCH a good Catholic, right?

7. Your dream school was never Harvard or Princeton, but Notre Dame, Georgetown, or BC.

You need a higher power involved in your higher education.

God is truly testing your willpower.

Which is crucial, because the church parking lot is CRAZY.


15. And when you were a kid, you didn't exactly get the reason behind lighting one pink and three purple candles, but you DID get excited because it meant you were that much closer to Christmas.

It really is the best time of the year.


18. Sunday School/CCD wasn’t just where you learned about the church and studied the Bible; it was also where fun went to die.

Hopefully, you at least got some killer snacks.

20. You spent Palm Sunday Mass trying to find someone who can turn your palm into a cross.

Seriously, the only way you could make one of these was by the Grace of God.
