When I was growing up, there were always times in the long car rides with my family to play different “road games”. I’m sure most everyone has played the license plate game, trying to see how many different state license plates you could find on the cars zooming past. One of my favorite games was always the alphabet game. You try to find an example of something that begins with a certain letter of the alphabet and shout it out before anyone else can. The weird letters like “Q” and “X” were always a little more difficult, but that was part of the challenge. With that in mind, I thought that it would be fun to create a list (by no means exhaustive) of the different things in Catholicism, using the alphabet as my guide. What other things can you think of to add to the list? Add your own in the comments below!

A – apostolic, advent

B – baptism, bishops, blood

C – chrism, cardinals, crucifix

D – dogma

E – Eucharist, Easter

F – Father

G – Gregorian chant, genuflect, General Instruction of the Roman Missal

H – heaven, holy

I – incense

J – Jesus

KKyrie, kneelers

M – monstrance, Magisterium, martyrs
