A Catholic Hipster Handbook Sneak Peak: Catholic Slang


With The Catholic Hipster Handbook finally available for pre-order, we thought it would be fun to start blogging about the various topics you'll find in what will basically become the official Catechism of the Hipster Catholicism. 

As we run up to the actual release date (September 22, 2017), we'll be sharing some of the topics from the book to get you good and excited.  

Today we're talking about Catholic Slang, an area taken up by one of our favorite contributors, Sergio Bermudez.

Catholic Slang takes on lots of different forms and comes up in a wide range of Catholic contexts. 

In The Catholic Hipster Handbook, Serg brings you some of his favs and challenges you to make sure your lexicon achieves maximum Catholic status before your next interaction with a bunch of Papists. 

As Serg points out in the book: 

Terms like “emotional chastity,” “intentionality,” and “guard your heart”  are all rather confusing to the uninitiated.

So Serg guides us through some of the more important terms to help us up our game.

You know the ones we're talking about: Catholic Thirst, Nunnabies, Predestinationships, and all the rest.

If this peaks you interest, you're definitely going to want to check out the rest of what Serg has to say once the book drops.

In the meantime, though, what are some of your favorite/least favorite Catholic slang?

Hit us up on Twitter to let us know, and we'll retweet you to the masses!
