In Every Conceivable Human Circumstance VULTUS CHRISTI - November 19, 2014 In Hospital I have been five days in hospital with my long–standing pulmonary issues, and getting the best care possible in a splendid facility. A signal manifestation of God's tender providence is that Dom Benedict, now a priest for over a fortnight, has been at my side and has offered Holy Mass in my hospital room. No Better Thing than This to Do I am searching for words to describe the experience. The immensity of the mystery of Redemption descended humbly, in so ...http://vultus.stblogs.org/index.php/2014/11/in-every-conceivable-human-circumstance/

Funerals ARE for the Dead. ALIENS IN THIS WORLD - November 10, 2014 If you do not believe in the afterlife, or if you do not believe in the efficacy and friendliness of prayer for the dead, then I am not offended if you say that "Funerals are for the living, not the dead." You are wrong, but you are being truthful to your own theology. If you are a Catholic and you say that, you don't know your own faith. The reason we have funerals is not so we can make a party out of medical waste disposal. It isn't even ...http://suburbanbanshee.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/funerals-are-for-the-dead/

On the Feast of St. John Lateran we hear about the only recorded act of violence by Jesus. Fr. Phil Bloom reflects upon this and explains why there are things that Christians should hold as worth fighting for . Jesus referred to the temple in Jerusalem as "my Father's house." Fr. Campion P. Gavaler explains the fact that the invisible God manifests his presence in visible signs recognizable by faith is at the heart of biblical revelation.

The Final Purification of the Elect SENSE OF THE SACRED - November 2, 2014 PRAISED BE JESUS, MARY, AND JOSEPH! These past two days have forced us to confront a reality which we normally avoid: the reality of death. By visiting cemeteries, we remember those who have gone before us. But remembering them, we also are reminded of the fact that we shall later be wherever they are now. Death for us inevitable because "through the disobedience of one man, sin entered into the world and together with sin entered death." "Even though man's nature is ...http://senseofthesacred.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-final-purification-of-elect.html

November 2nd: All Souls Day AIRMARIA.COM - November 2, 2014 ... and sometime between 998 and 1030, St. Odilo of Cluny decreed that it should be celebrated on November 2 in all of the monasteries of his Benedictine congregation. Over the next two centuries, other Benedictines and the Carthusians began to celebrate it in their monasteries as well, and soon it spread to the entire Church. On All Souls Day, we not only remember the dead, but we apply our efforts, through prayer, almsgiving, and the Mass, to their release from ...http://airmaria.com/2014/11/02/november-2nd-all-souls-day/

All Souls Day ~ November 2nd BATTLE BEADS BLOG - November 2, 2014 ... History Christians have been praying for their departed brothers and sisters since the earliest days of Christianity. Early liturgies and inscriptions on catacomb walls attest to the ancientness of prayers for the dead, even if the Church needed more time to develop a substantial theology behind the practice. Praying for the dead is actually borrowed from Judaism, as indicated in 2 Maccabees 12:41-42. In the New Testament, St Paul prays for ...http://battlebeads.blogspot.com/2014/11/all-souls-day-november-2nd.html

I neglect however, my responsibility to help my mom get to heaven. I assume she's there, but I shouldn't. None of us should assume that our loved ones are there. We can hope for it, and believe in it, but we should never stop interceding for them. I need to keep saying Masses for my mom.

To Trace All Souls Day INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - November 2, 2014 ... once said so well, one major difference between Protestants and Catholics is that Catholics pray for the dead: "My view is that if Purgatory did not exist, we should have to invent it." Why? "Because few things are as immediate, as human and as widespread—at all times and in all cultures—as prayer for one"s own departed dear ones." Calvin, the Reformer of Geneva, had a woman whipped because she was discovered praying at the grave of herson and ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/11/to-trace-all-souls-day.html

Why Have All Saints and All Souls Day? NEW HORIZONS - November 1, 2014 ... and All Souls Day (albeit an unofficial Holy Day of Obligation) disappearing from the awareness of even practising Catholics. Sadly in some parishes including mine, the emphasis in November is about students and exams, rather than the Holy Souls. As a consequence of that decision, a diminished awareness of the doctrine of Communion of Saints has resulted, a doctrine which teaches that believers on earth are united in a spiritual fellowship with the saints in Heaven and the souls in Purgatory. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/pGvP/~3/L38EgWwIQcQ/why-have-all-saints-and-all-souls-day.html

The Holy Origins of Halloween SOUTHERN FRIED CATHOLICISM BLOG - October 31, 2014 ... churches began to set apart a day on their calendar to honor all of the Christians martyrs - those well-known as well as those known but to God alone. In the Christian East, these commemorations can be traced back to at least the fourth century. By that time, we know that the Church in the city of Edessa (in present-day Turkey) had already set aside one day in the year to honor all of the Christian martyrs. That date was May 13. In the year 359, St. Ephrem composed a hymn honoring "All ...http://southernfriedcatholicism.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-holy-origins-of-halloween.html

It is not surprising that Catholics became more concerned about the afterlife.

Short Feature: Private Snafu – Spies THE B-MOVIE CATECHISM - October 18, 2014 So, I watched " Fury " for Aleteia this week, David Ayer's new flick starring Brad Pitt as the commander of a Sherman Tank in the waning days of WWII. While I'm still not quite sure what message (if any) the movie was trying to convey, the film definitely gets points for realism. If nothing else, "Fury" lets you feel what it must have been like to spend most of your day crammed inside a rolling metal box approximately the size of a standard hall bathroom with four other ...http://b-moviecat.blogspot.com/2014/10/short-feature-private-snafu-spies.html

ASK FATHER: How to Have Masses Said for Me After My Death? FR. Z'S BLOG - October 9, 2014 ... dead. I want prayers, darn it, not balloons and jokes. Also, it is hard for many people to find priests who can take their Mass intentions for loved ones. Pray for more priests, good holy, devout and faithful priests. So, now to the question: making provisions for Masses to be said for you after your death. If leaving funds for Masses to be said, be as specific as possible about what you want. Can. 950 of the Code for the Latin Church establishes that if there is no indication ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/yAISG9Cyyts/

Whatever guilt there is here lies squarely at the doors of the clergy here, since it is our responsibility to teach the faith. But blame laying is pointless—we all have to come to grips with the widespread ignorance of basic Catholic doctrine and each of us do what we can to remedy it. This of course directly impinges on the question of marriage and family life, human sexuality and the Church's teachings on it. I would argue ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-gospel-of-marriage.html

Who are the slaves? As God the Father sent slaves who were the prophets in the days of the Old Testament, Jesus also sends slaves in the world today. These slaves, as the prophets who answered their callings and did God's work, are today's ministers of the Word of God. They are the priests, the Bishops, the Cardinals, the Pope.
