Question 1: What percentage of Americans say they pray every day?
Answer: D, Fifty-five.
Explanation: 55 According to Pew, fifty-five percent of Americans say they pray every day.
Question 2: Yes or no, is the Bible allowed in school (USA)?
Answer: A, Yes
Explanation: The Bible is allowed in school, and teachers can even use it in their curriculum. The prohibition is against an endorsement of religion, so as long as the Bible is used as part of the curriculum, it is acceptable. What teachers may do beyond that remains subject to debate.
Question 3: Yes or no, the Bible condemns prayer in public.
Explanation: A common misconception is that the Bible condemns public prayer (Matthew 6:5). This is not the case. The Bible condemns prayer in public that is being offered for the sake of showing off one's piety.
Question 4: Can the Rosary be worn around the neck as jewelry?
A) Yes, there is no rule against it
B) No, it is sacrilegious
C) Both A and B can be correct
Answer: C, both A and B can be correct.
Explanation: The Rosary is sometimes worn as jewelry or to demonstrate piety. There is no rule against wearing a Rosary, but each person should contemplate the reason why they are wearing it. If wearing the Rosary for pious reasons, then there is no reason to be concerned. The Rosary is a tool for prayer, not evangelization. And it is not intended to be used as jewelry. However, if you see someone wearing it as such, it is best to ignore the situation. The Rosary itself is simply beads on a chain, and we should not act as if it is a relic or magic talisman.
Question 5: It is important to say the proper Act of Contrition during confession.
Explanation: The Act of Contrition, memorized by many Catholics before their first confession is more of a guide than a required response. Instead, what matters is that you demonstrate a true sense of sorrow at your sin, and a genuine intention to change for the good. You should also ask God to help you, and express thankfulness for His Grace, through which you regain your life. The sincerity of your heart is much more important than rattling off the proper words.
