Holy Week 'Priorities' FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - March 29, 2015 ... almost 40 days to Ash Wednesday, and remind you of the "word" I shared with you that day at Mass. As many of you know, every year since 2010 I've asked the Lord to give me a "theme word" for Lent to share with you on Ash Wednesday—a word that could help to focus and guide you—and me—(all of us) in our Lenten disciplines. Now since everybody here has a perfect memory and always remembers everything that I say from the pulpit, I'm sure I could ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2015/03/holy-week-priorities.html

St Teresa of Ávila Καθολικός διάκονος - March 28, 2015 ... profound encounter with God, Teresa contracted malaria and became very ill. During her illness she had a seizure that left her unconscious and near death. In fact, she was thought to be dead. She awoke several days later only to discover a grave had been dug for her. This illness left her paralyzed for three years. But she was still not yet able or willing to give herself to God through prayer. Once she was given the grace of desiring to pray ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/03/st-teresa-of-avila.html

The Raising of Lazarus in the Liturgy of Lent NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - March 28, 2015 Until the first part of the eighth century, the Thursdays of Lent were "aliturgical" days in the Roman Rite, days on which no ferial Mass was celebrated. A similar custom prevails to this day in the Ambrosian and Byzantine Rites, the former abstaining from the Eucharistic Sacrifice on all the Fridays in Lent, the latter on all the weekdays. I have described in another article why Pope St Gregory II (715-31) changed this custom, and instituted Masses for the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/Ico4GuEXisM/the-raising-of-lazarus-in-liturgy-of.html

Overcoming the Lies and Tasting the Resurrection NUNESSENTIAL - March 27, 2015 ... He was real, and out of hundreds of people in the room that night, He saw me, chose me, and came for little old me. Only He knew my story, a shy, broken girl who was paralyzed by fear. He knew how much I needed Him and He rescued me from the dark and brought me into the light. I've been working in lay ministry in the Church for 21 years now and my faith has been a constant. I have seen both tragedies and miracles and when hardships in life came, I was anchored in my trust of the One who could ...http://soltsisters.blogspot.com/2015/03/overcoming-lies-and-tasting-resurrection.html

Christ's Glory Is His Cross SENSE OF THE SACRED - March 22, 2015 ... sorrow, to the Lord, these are days of glory. Again, the Lord upsets the thinking of the world. "Glory" means honor, public praise, and fame. Thus, to the world, it would mean popularity and public adulation. But to the Lord, it would mean humiliation and suffering. In other words, the glory of Christ is the Cross. The Cross is the glory of Christ. It is the way by which he glorifies the Father. it is the way by which he is glorified by the Father. "Son though he was, he ...http://senseofthesacred.blogspot.com/2015/03/christs-glory-is-his-cross.html

Upon which day two monks, one ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2015/03/march-21st-solemnity-of-transitus-of.html

When We Struggle Against Our Spouses BYZANTINE, TEXAS - March 12, 2015 ... make the climb together. When a man looks at his wife it should be with an eye towards lifting her up to heaven. Likewise, when the wife looks at her husband she should be watchful for ways to support him as he climbs ever upward. It is my opinion that when two people begin to offer themselves to one another as a means of salvation, that the incongruities in fasting, prayer rules, almsgiving, tithing, etc. take on a much healthier shape. When I as a husband imagine myself ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2015/03/when-we-struggle-against-our-spouses.html

Where Is Your Temple? SPIRITUAL DEVOTIONAL - March 9, 2015 ... that He had said this, and they came to believe the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken." -[John 2: 13-25]. In this Scripture, we see very a different Jesus, one who is very angry, and righteously so. Instead of the peaceful, gentle shepherd cradling a lost lamb, we see a Jesus who is fiercely protecting the sanctity of the Temple. For, the Temple has become a tawdry marketplace, where moneychangers extort hefty exchange fees for foreign currency, in exchange for local currency ...http://spiritualdevotional.blogspot.com/2015/03/where-is-your-temple.html

March 6, 2015 - Friday of the Second Week in Lent DAILY HOMILIES - March 6, 2015 ... Jesus was our brother whom we killed because we were jealous of how much our Father loved him. We know that we will die. Some people live with that knowledge more present to them than others. When we are healthy, we rarely think of death. When we are young, death seems as impossible as growing old. Yet death will come. Death is the universal human experience. We speak different languages; we eat different foods; we live under different governments; but everyone in the history of the world has ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DailyHomilies/~3/87OJtqUm9jg/march-6-2015-friday-of-second-week-in.html

March 5, 2015 - Thursday of the Second Week of Lent DAILY HOMILIES - March 5, 2015 ... the place of the dead, like everyone else who died. The rich man is in Sheol, but he is experiencing great sufferings, which was not the usual description of that place. We know that he is not in hell, because we see him worrying about his five brothers, whereas hell is a place of complete selfishness. Perhaps they are all (Abraham, Lazarus, and the rich man) in Sheol, but Abraham and Lazarus are in the part where they are waiting for Jesus to come and take them to heaven ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DailyHomilies/~3/MyiKunpV7BU/march-5-2015-thursday-of-second-week-of.html

They Turned YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - February 24, 2015 ... change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen. Study Lent is Life to us. You may think this season is forty days of ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2015/02/they-turned.html

When you hear the desert and the number 40, you might think of God's People in the wilderness, wandering before they enter the Promised Land. Or you might think of our 40 days of Lent. Both good connections. But there's something else this harks back to, something much, much more ancient. Adam in the garden – being tempted by the devil. Jesus is the new Adam. He ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2015/02/lent-is-serious-business-sunday-homily.html

Reading Advent in Lent VOX NOVA - February 22, 2015 ... an act of will I was able to get caught up, as it were binging on the gospel. Over the past 6-8 months, however, I managed to fall disastrously far behind: about three months. Periodically I would make an attempt to get caught up, but invariably would fall even further behind. (One can almost read this as a parable about the futility of attempting to save ourselves by our own works.) So this Lent I decided to take the double track of reading the daily readings as they come, and also go back ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/02/22/reading-advent-in-lent/

Ash Wednesday: Lent Begins Καθολικός διάκονος - February 18, 2015 Since sharing my views on things these days seems to anger quite a few people, I'll go ahead and lead off my post for Ash Wednesday by simply stating that chief among the questions I truly despise is, "What are you giving up for Lent?" In the first place, it's none of your business- pray, fast, give alms in secret and all that ( Matt 6:1-8.16-18 ). I know, God knows, and my spiritual director knows. Among my reasons for disliking this question is not because what I giving up ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/02/ash-wednesday-lent-begins.html

10 Ash Wednesday Quotes From Pope Benedict XVI TOM PERNA - February 18, 2015 Today, on Ash Wednesday, we enter the great penitential season of Lent, a season that draws our attention to prayer, sacrifice, and almsgiving. For many, this season is about "giving something up" (in today's social media driven world that would be Facebook). Whatever your Lenten fast is this year, I encourage to do it, and to do it well. Fasting though is only 1/3 of the Lenten motif, we must also pray and give alms. Since prayer is our encounter with ...http://tomperna.org/2015/02/18/10-ash-wednesday-quotes-from-pope-benedict-xvi/

A Lenten Calendar for Catholic Children {revised} SHOWER OF ROSES - February 18, 2015 ... while the older children were working with their math tutor and the three little ones were all napping (a rare occurrence these days!), to make this year's Lenten Calendar. I used the same documents I created last year , but this year I assembled it a little differently (similar to how I first assembled it back before I was blogging) so that each week could begin with Sunday. Jesus rose from the dead "on the first day of the week." Because it is the "first ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/eojD/~3/3f1W9p8dvGY/a-lenten-calendar-for-catholic-children.html

Prayer of the Week THE WILD REED - February 17, 2015 ... they be for the well-being of all! Let this be recorded for generations to come, so that a people yet unborn may praise the Beloved: That you come down from the Holy Mountain, to live in every receptive heart. You hear the groans of the prisoners, liberating those doomed to die. Let all nations declare the glory of your Holy Name and gather together in peace to honor the Creator of All. Though my strength be broken in mid-course and my days shortened, I cry to You, "Would that ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2015/02/prayer-of-week.html

What Would I Do Without Faith? IN GOD'S COMPANY 2 - February 14, 2015 ... and abuse or do something about it. Now, I realize that I had pushed myself mentally and physically beyond what my body could take without seeing any results and staying in a very unhealthy environment for me and my daughters. (Story in Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round: An Alcoholic Family in Crisis) My faith came alive in 1990 when I watched my father, Brigadier General, Albert L.

Priday Potpourri - Pray Priest ADAM'S ALE - February 13, 2015 ... barrel. Showing up at Mass is not enough. A priest participates in the Mass. The priest prays the prayers and offers them for himself, for the needs of the world, and for the praise of God. For example, when the ordained priest says, "Let us pray," that is not a signal for the Missal to be brought to him. It is not "dead space." It is the time for the priesthood (the Church – you) to call to mind things that need to be prayed for and then the celebrant collects those ...http://clevelandpriest.blogspot.com/2015/02/priday-potpourri-pray-priest.html

Death in Kristin Lavransdatter CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 12, 2015 ... leaves us wondering what kind of inward grace can be found in such a casual outward sign. Have we traded in the sacraments for such a pittance? Kristin is a wake up call. By tracing the proud and beautiful character of Kristin through most of her life in fourteenth-century Norway, we are in fact tracing the human condition. The scenes are worth pausing over. Kristin's is a story bursting with life precisely because it is set squarely in the vice-grip of death. But have we forgotten how to ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/VzZ8248Qaj8/death-kristin-lavransdatter
