aye. Theology can be difficult for me to grasp.
What does Jesus's dying on the cross have to do with our salvation?
What is our relationship to "the Law" -- what is the law to us? (I get this one!)
What is the sacrifice of the Eucharist?
question and answer session recording here (starts at 26:00, but there is a nice story about a kitten at 18:27)
See if your answer matches Dr. Scott Hahn's.
I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it.

I want the Iron Man action figure too. (You see I'm not very fast at acquiring these things.) Someday...

Not a low. I don't want to call it a low. I'm at a lull in my church life. I'm still trying to get used to our new pastors. I don't miss my former pastor in the sense of heartache, but I do miss his presence and HOMILIES. I, who am very talented at snoozing and can sleep soundly in busy airports, bus stops and doctor's waiting rooms, can also snooze during mass. It's become the norm to attend my parish mass and be bored. Gumby visited the parish a few times over the holidays and I have to say, "Yeah, that's about how it is (boring)."
No, we don't come to mass to be entertained. But in the words of Fr. John Corapi, the priest is supposed to be on fire, and the people come to watch him burn. Our bishop, too is a big believer in priests who are supposed to know how to preach. But he inherited the diocese and he can't quite fix it ... there are other matters to pursue.
It won't discourage me from attending mass, it just keeps me expectant that I will be bored. I still do my two volunteer gigs. One I'm reasonably competent with, and therefore comfortable. The other, not so comfortable and I still feel like a fifth wheel and wonder sometimes if I'm not a liability. There isn't much oomph in my "church presence" -- I'm at a lull.

1. Don't ever leave chocolate in the car if there is even the slightest chance of it being a warm day.
2. Don't attempt to eat a melted Hershey's Kisses. You may can navigate the wrapper, but you won't be able to navigate the embedded strip of paper.
Now excuse me while I go change shirts so that I may run the errand I was too embarassed to run with the chocolate-enhanced shirt. I suppose it'd be normal for a toddler or for one taking care of a toddler to walk around with such a shirt, but not for me.
