The real answer to this is because of St. Ignatius' work in combating Protestantism in the Age of Reformation (the 1500s). St. Ignatius's life story is truly amazing. To paraphrase briefly - He was at one time a very secular man who was a soldier. He received divine inspiration while recovering from a wound and was instantly converted to Catholicism. He created the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) who took a leading role in converting protestants to return to full union with the Catholic church. Today the Jesuits are one of the four major orders of Catholicism. They continue their work following Ignatius' lead in converting all souls (non-Christian, Protestant, even wayward Catholics) to the true teachings of Jesus through the Catholic Church. That is why the Church considers the Jesuit's work to be very relevant in preaching to non-Catholics in missionary work in protestant countries. ~MFC

I was told the jameson whiskey and Bushmills are associated with the catholic protestant thing in Ireland. Which on with which?

This really isn't relevant anymore, but probably held meaning for some people in the past. Jameson is brewed in the Republic of Ireland while Bushmills is brewed in Northern Ireland. Therefore Jameson is viewed by some as the Catholic whiskey and Bushmills as the Protestant one. However, they are both excellent and most people don't care either way any more.

What do you think was the most permanent impact of the Reformation?

A:One obvious outcome of the Protestant Reformation was the breakup of the Catholic Church, with the creation of Protestant Churches. Another, more indirect, effect was the reformation of the Catholic Church itself. Both of these outocmes are reversible. For example, it is conceivable that the Catholic and Protestant Churches could, one day in the future, reconcile and recombine. Similarly, the Catholic Church could one day become as corrupt as it was in the Renaissance period - and perhaps it has already gone down that path, given revelations about the financial affairs of the Church and those about widespread child abuse.One effect that is more likely to remain permanent is the loss by the Catholic Church of absolute power over the lives of people. The Reformation allowed democracy to take root, and even gave secular authorities power to investigate criminal activity by clergy, should this occur within the relevant jurisdictions. It also allowed people to make their own decisions on how and whether to worship God.

Christmas is celebrated in Germany because it is still a country founded on Christianity. One-third of its population is Protestant, another third is Roman Catholic, and therefore it is still relevant for them to celebrate Christ's birth. The remaining third who are of a variety of religious affiliations or none at all also enjoy the materialistic festivities associated with Christmas.
