Or even, if I am slowly stepping back and away? Wherever we are in our friendship with Jesus, the grace of today's gospel passage is that this question (which we know so well) is giving us another chance to answer: Who do we say that Jesus is in our lives? What is our conviction about Jesus who promises to be with us to the end? What is ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2014/08/homily-disturbance.html

Reflections on the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time With Small Children in Tow... LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - August 18, 2014 ... saint feast days come upon us, and it seems like Advent is right around the corner. Right now, we're at this point wherein most of the church musicians are off rotation until after Labor Day and parish activities are still in slow mode with Vacation Bible School wrapped up, but transition back to the hectic nature of the fall is in the air. We should enjoy these last quiet moments. And so I brought the children to Mass on Sunday longing for that spiritual respite. For the most ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflections-on-20th-sunday-in-ordinary.html

Reflection on Today's Gospel, Sunday, August 17, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - August 17, 2014 Readings for Sunday, August 17, 2014 I remember when (a few years ago) I read this passage from Matthew's gospel to my students for the first time. A few students who were really listening were surprised and perplexed by Jesus' response to the Canaanite woman. Not fully understanding the passage myself, I had to go do some research in order to help them. I understood that the Jews would see this woman as lesser than – or unworthy – because ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/08/17/reflection-on-todays-gospel-sunday-august-17-2014/

Reflection: Matthew 15:4-23 THE DOME BLOG - August 17, 2014 Matthew 15:4-23 (20th Sunday in Ordinary Time) The Gospel for this Sunday is the story of the woman whose daughter was possessed by a demon. The mother approaches Jesus and asks him to heal her daughter. Her request was simple and respectful. However, Jesus ignored her! She was a woman and a Canaanite. This was a segment of the population that were seen by the Jews as the "lowest of the low." Thus, it was expected that Jesus as a Jew should ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-154-23.html

Those that like Jesus in the Gospel reading, reach out their hand to us and say "It is I, do not be afraid." Sometimes the damage can be prevented in the future, as when we learn more about how to implement safer building codes, or improve our warning systems. Kindness and truth shall meet; justice and peace shall kiss. Our faith life can go through storms, and there is a place of safe ...http://journeytowisdom-ocbs.blogspot.com/2014/08/but-god-was-not-in-earthquakereflection.html

The Feast of the Transfiguration (and the 36th Anniversary of Pope Paul VI's Death) INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - August 6, 2014 The following is taken from an "Opening the Word" column I wrote for the February 28, 2010, edition of Our Sunday Visitor : In sum, in the days leading up the Transfiguration, Jesus had directly confronted and demolished any false notions the disciples might have had about the nature of his mission. He strongly expressed the unwavering commitment he had to offering himself as a sacrifice for the world. His kingdom was not of this world, and he was not a political leader or ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/08/the-feast-of-the-transfiguration-and-the-36th-anniversary-of-pope-paul-vis-death.html

"Give Them Some Food Yourselves." CATHOLIC LIVING TODAY - July 31, 2014 The miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fish that is mentioned in this Sunday's Readings (18A) for August 3, 2014 is so central to the gospel message that it is one of the few miracles found in all four gospels. It help us recognize the gifts we have been given and the responsibility we have to give them to others. And it offers important food for thought as we debate the immigration dilemma we currently face at our porous borders.

In fact, the Kingdom of God has many dimensions and each parable illustrates a different attribute of life. Our understanding is enhanced as we add each allusion to our understanding of life. Action Some of the parables continue to hold meaning today.

(Mt 5:30) They said, "We cannot do that." The old man said, "If you cannot offer the other cheek, at least allow one cheek to be struck." "We cannot do that, either," they said. So he said, "If you are not able to do that, do not return evil for evil," and they said, "We cannot do that, either."

Reflection on Today's Readings CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - July 27, 2014 Readings for Sunday, July 27, 2014 When reading the first reading, I was struck by Solomon's unselfishness – his genuine concern for the people in his charge. I thought of a mother's prayers. Most moms are really selfless and spend a good part of their prayer time imploring God's graces and help for their children. On the other hand, sometimes, we treat God like a fairy God father. Gimme this, I wish that… There is a really simple, sweet prayer that our teachers ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/07/27/reflection-on-todays-readings/

On Mustard: The Call to Be Pesty Weeds for God MUSINGS OF A DISCERNING WOMAN - July 20, 2014 This Sunday's Gospel story includes the parable about mustard seed. The best reflection I have ever heard on this comes from Sister Pat Farrell's 2012 address at LCWR : Joyful hope is the hallmark of genuine discipleship. We look forward to a future full of hope, in the face of all evidence to the contrary. Hope makes us attentive to signs of the inbreaking of the Reign of God. Jesus describes that coming reign in the parable of the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MusingsOfADiscerningWoman/~3/euPt2Cpk6hk/on-mustard-call-to-be-pesty-weeds-for.html

Thoughts on the Sunday Readings: The Grain, the Weeds and Tobit (Sixteenth Sunday - A) THE ALTERNATE PATH - July 19, 2014 ... (not found in Protestant Bibles) is, in many ways, a reflection on sin, suffering and the question of why troubles come upon us. Even if one does not go looking for trouble it seems that troubles will often come looking for us in life. Why is this? One thing that the Book of Tobit reveals is that even though God does not send troubles our way; God is willing to aid and help us learn from the troubles that we do encounter in life. At one point in the story the young Tobias is ...http://thealternatepath.blogspot.com/2014/07/thoughts-on-sunday-readings-grain-weeds.html
