Why did the catholic church name so many things after pagan gods?

Question by ~۞~ST£V£-Ø~۞~ the Sexy Beast =): Why did the catholic church name so many things after pagan gods?
They named the holiday easter after a pagan god. The months of January, March, February, May and, June after pagan gods. They also named every day of the week after a celestial body that was worshipped by the previous pagans. But the church is the one who made the calendar, why would they name everything after another religion which they supposedly oppose?
They could make up words or name their months and days after other things important to Christianity. Easter is a pagan God, I believe it’s spelled like Eastre though. Monday=Moon Day, etc. March= Mars, etc. I did not think about the whole easier to convert dealy.
The church did make the calendar, the Gregorian calendar named after Pope Gregory.

They adopted pagan holidays and turned them into christian ones as well (such as the saturnelia on Dec. 25th)

They did it to make the “new” religion of christianity palatable to the Pagan Romans. It made converting easier.

Too many things need to be corrected in the catholic church to name them all and not sound like a mean person…… but if they were changed they wouldn’t be catholic anymore.

What are some things I could do to prepare for singing a solo?

Question by Shannon: What are some things I could do to prepare for singing a solo?
In church, I am going to sing a solo.
Sometimes, my voice is not very clear, or precise.
The solo is to be sung in a sweet, clear, pretty voice,
which i have when i have the right preparations.
Is there something i can do the night before, or the day of to warm myself, and my voice up?
I heard somewhere that salty foods helps your voice.
This is an odd question i know, but i would really appreciate the help !

Answer by tammee
the most important thing is to visualize the performance from beginning to end!!!

Next, you just need to relax the throat….try not to be uptight or the throat muscles will not work properly. Drink lots of water….DEFINITELY NOT MILK OR ANYTHING that coats the throat.

Hum gently before church begins.

When it comes time for your solo, enjoy it!!! Sing your melody to god!!! Make him pleased and the heck with everyone else.
