The Value of "Fasting" PRAYER ON THE HILL - March 8, 2014 First Sunday of Lent - 2014 Father God, Lent truly gets underway this day. The SUNDAY READINGS bring serious matter for our consideration. We are reminded in the reading from Matthew's gospel that there is a reality joining us to one another in a very personal e experience. We are victims of temptation, all of us! Even Jesus endured three of those moments after his forty-day retreat in the desert. After such a lengthy experience of prayer ...http://prayeronthehill.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-value-of-fasting.html

Why We Need Lent. THE CITY AND THE WORLD - March 5, 2014 Whether you started the season with Forgiveness Vespers on Sunday night or whether you're starting it today with Ash Wednesday , Lent begins this week. As I noted in a post from a couple of years ago , I often start Lent by rereading Father Alexander Schmemann's Great Lent: Journey to Pascha , a book that considers the close relationship between Easter and the penitential season that precedes it. For your reflection at the start of Lent, I would like to ...http://jesuitjoe.blogspot.com/2014/03/why-we-need-lent.html

Better comprehension of self-denial would also positively affect the way Christians live throughout the year. The importance of self-denial can be seen if we look specifically at fasting and use it as an example of self-denial in general. Indeed, fasting, for those who can practice it, is a crucial part of voluntary self-denial. But since we live in a consumerist society, where self-indulgence rather than self-denial is the rule, any suggestion to fast ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/03/some-lenten-links.html

Reflection on Mass Readings, Sunday, March 2, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - March 2, 2014 Readings for Sunday, March 2, 2014 I am admitting that I am not writing this after deep reflection, rather an instant response to the readings today. Last night I fell asleep praying. Like millions of Americans, my family seems to live on a wing and a prayer – literally paycheck to paycheck. We have been unable to save anything. Things have been particularly difficult for us this past year for a lot of reasons. I went to bed with all of this on my ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/03/02/reflection-on-mass-readings-sunday-march-2-2014/

Whose Kingdom Are You Seeking? JOURNEY TO WISDOM - March 1, 2014 Reflection for Sunday, March 2 -- The Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time By: Judy Morss Gospel of Matthew 6:24-34 Jesus said to his disciples: "No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

"You Cannot Serve God and Mammon." CATHOLIC LIVING TODAY - February 26, 2014 The Gospel set before us this Sunday (8A) , March 2, 2014, continues Christ's teaching as given in the Sermon on the Mount. The extract is all about Divine Providence. Jesus does not deny the reality of human needs, but forbids making them the object of anxious care and, in effect, becoming their slave. In our modern consumerist society, it is a teaching that is frequently neglected - even by devout Christians. Our Discussion Questions will guide your ...http://catholiclivingtoday.blogspot.com/2011/02/you-cannot-serve-god-and-mammon.html

I felt very conspicuous with the ashes on my forehead, especially if we received our ashes fairly early in the day. I will say though, that growing up in western New York, non-Catholics here are very used to seeing ashes, since the Catholic population is so high here. When I lived in New York City for a spell as a graduate student, for the first time I had someone come up to me and tell me that I had something on my face. I was shocked, but thinking about it more deeply, I should not ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-catholic-nook-ash-wednesday.html

Mary TV Daily Reflection 2/24/2014 MARY, OUR MOTHER - February 24, 2014 The way of love (c)Mary TV 2013 J.M.J February 24, 2014 Dear Family of Mary! The Gospel for Sunday, February 23, was Matthew 5: 38-48. It is one of the more challenging Gospel passages for me. It reads: Jesus said to his disciples: "You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil. When someone strikes you on your right cheek, turn the other one as well. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/YVVY/~3/4KVbXjRnCt4/mary-tv-daily-reflection-2242014.html

Sunday Reflection REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - February 16, 2014 Sunday is a day of rest, relaxation, and renewal. There is more time for prayer, reading, and just being. However, we need to make the day really God's Day or we will be working, washing, worrying, and miss the day of rest that God intended us to have. Now, so many people need to work on Sunday, but I hope at least some of them have one day a week that is possible, with planning, to make a day of rest. I do want to say something about ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2014/02/sunday-reflection.html

Our Eastern Catholic sisters and brothers have various ways to mark the preparation for Easter.

The Lord gives us His commandments not to cramp our style or to suck all the fun out of life, but because He knows us. He really knows us – to the core of our being. He knows what is best for us – eternally! He has shown us ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/02/15/reflection-on-readings-for-sunday-february-16-2014/

Holiness of the Pharisees: Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time CATHOLICMOM.COM - February 15, 2014 ... But hanging around with certain children of God may present an occasion of sin to me. We tend to try to manage it. "I'll keep my cable subscription, but just not watch that channel." "I'll keep surfing the web, but just won't visit that site." "I'll go the club, but stop after two drinks." If it works, great. But when it doesn't, many of us go on fooling ourselves that it will–the next time. We keep trying half-measures, avoiding the necessary treatment because it will sting too much, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Catholicmomcom/~3/TL6w5bd1BWo/

Understanding the Lord, seeking his face as we live, striving to be faithful to Christ, these are choices that lead to life. Certainly we need help to make good choices in life. So often we know what the right thing to do is but we give into anger, or petulance or selfish desire and we choose the wrong option. There is always hope and that hope is Jesus Christ and our desire to follow him and when we stray, to turn back to him and receive the ...http://humblepiety.blogspot.com/2014/02/homily-notes-6th-sunday-ordinary-time.html
