Jessica Powers 1905-1988 REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 18, 2017 Jessica Powers is one of my favorite poets. This Carmelite poet was able to put into words things I knew about God but did not know how to say. I have shared some of her poems in the past, but want to honor her today as she died on August 18, 1988 at the age of 83. Here is a short poem that I have not quoted before: If You Have Nothing The gesture of a gift, is adequate. If you have nothing: laurel leaf or bay, no flower, no seed, no ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2017/08/jessica-powers-1905-1988.html

Prayer: Anthony of Padua IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - August 17, 2017 Mary, our queen, holy mother of God, make our hearts overflow with divine grace and heavenly wisdom. Pour down upon us the gift of mercy so that we may obtain pardon of our sins. Help us to live in such a way as to merit the glory and bliss of heaven. May this be granted us by your son, Jesus, who has exalted you above the angels, has crowned you as queen, and has seated you with him forever on his throne.http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/08/prayer-anthony-of-padua.html

"Give Credit Where Credit Is Due" by Colleen O'Sullivan YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - August 17, 2017 ... Sometimes I wonder how the Suscipe prayer is prayed around the world. If we lived in a place where we didn't have so many material goods at our disposal, would it be easier to give God thanks for what we do have? If we lived in a country that wasn't a major player on the world stage, would it be easier to give God the glory due to God? If we lived under a repressive government, what would we mean when we returned to God our freedom or liberty? What if every day were a struggle ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2017/08/give-credit-where-credit-is-due-by.html

Monday Musings - As Only a Mother Can HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - August 14, 2017 While I was on retreat last week at the Abbey of the Genesee , I paused (as I often do on my visits there) before the statue of our Blessed Mother which welcomes visitors to the monastery. It is a simple but beautiful image. I think you will agree. This day, as I prayerfully gazed into her eyes, these words came to me: "Come closer my child. Draw near to me. I want to embrace and kiss you as only a Mother can." What a gift to us "poor banished children of Eve"!http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2017/08/monday-musings-as-only-mother-can.html

And we can also choose to doubt and fall into fear as did Peter. The tempest which provoked his cry for help is a symbol of the life storms that threaten our perseverance in faith. There is a grace by which we weather life's storms. Fortitude is the virtue of which Peter stood in need at his moment of temptation.

Grace Can Pierce Stone CHOCOLATE FOR YOUR BRAIN! - August 11, 2017 Driving my daughters to an appointment, we began a discussion about an article I read about a course where the students studied hate crimes, and in the process, encountered someone who had begun to repent, and who had from some, received the gift of forgiveness. As my friend who sent me the article said, "No matter what we think about other people, change is amazingly possible."

Sherry writes: The Catholic blogosphere is as diverse as the Church itself, with people who wrestle earnestly with issues both big and small, but who try always to be Catholic in their response to life and all the people living in it. We aren't always successful. Being like any family, we have fights, we fail, we forgive, we pull away, we mess up. However only when we have our right and left hands together, can ...http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2017/08/well-prayers-for-peace-doesnt-seem-like.html

Eloise is a very precocious, intense and playful five year old. She's a delight to be with and I have learned so much from her.

As important as they all are, sometimes we need to take a step back and evaluate their purpose. Good, healthy relationships are vitally important to a happy life, but when we let them take over our life or give ourselves entirely to them without saving time for anything else, they can be destructive to our happiness.
