Ways to Help the Christians Persecuted by the Islamic State SERVANT AND STEWARD - March 2, 2015 One of my friends in Rome asked me this past weekend what she could do - in addition to prayer - to help our brothers and sisters in Iraq and Syria who are suffering for the sake of the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (cf. Matthew 10:22 ). It is an excellent question, and one I was very happy to answer. In these Lenten days we strive to be ever more conformed to the Redeemer by dedicating ourselves to increased prayer, fasting, and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/YBuXgRwBLts/ways-to-help-christians-persecuted-by.html

Et Alia ACTA SANCTORVM - February 28, 2015 28 FEBRUARY 2015. In these days of winter, time has been short for blogging and otherwise addressing anything beyond what presents itself as the next emergency or "must do" task. I recognize this is the devil at work in the world. He places before us all that we are constantly bombarded with and cajoles us to believe that this is reality, that this is what is most important. Doing so, the evil one prevents us from lifting our eyes to God, worshipping Him, and spending time ...http://acta-sanctorum.blogspot.com/2015/02/et-alia.html

Column: Riven by Light QUANTUM THEOLOGY - February 27, 2015 ... walk outside my office, looking up at the crystal clear sky, shading from deep rose to midnight blue, admiring Venus hanging like a hard, bright ball in the west. "Time for Vespers," I thought, glad to be reminded to sit down with God at the end of a tiring day. The older name for Evening Prayer means "evening star." In the days before clocks, the planet's appearance in the sky was a cue that it was time for evening prayers. Lent is here. The gradually ...http://quantumtheology.blogspot.com/2015/02/column-riven-by-light.html

Exciting Bible Stories - The Acts of the Apostles - The Angel Frees Paul CARIBBEAN CATHOLIC - February 26, 2015 ... book of the Acts of the Apostles sounds almost like a Monty Python skit.. if it wasn't a serious story of God's Work and intercessory prayer. Here is the Great Peter – Arrested. Chained. Guarded. Yet he escapes and the guards go " Huh? Where did he go? Have you seen him? No! Have you?" Then he shows up at the door of his friends and the woman who greets him runs away and leaves him at the stoop instead of letting him in. On a serious note, the story shows the power of ...http://caribbeancatholic.blogspot.com/2015/02/exciting-bible-stories-acts-of-apostles_46.html

Lent: Truth & Hope; The Caliphate: Lies & Despair FIRE, SALT, AND LIGHT. - February 25, 2015 ... grace of Baptism, strive to live out ever more fully discipleship as living temples of the Holy Spirit, members of the Body of Christ on earth, journeying with Jesus from His time in the desert, throughout His public life, being with Him in the Garden, on the Cross, awaiting at the tomb for His Glorious Resurrection. A good simple prayer which can be prayed repeatedly throughout each day, taken from a longer prayer of St. Ephraim: O God purify me a sinner and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/hopeforpriests/hcWS/~3/CIvxe4y7kUo/lent-truth-hope-caliphate-lies-despair.html

Homily: Into the Desert BUKAS PALAD - February 25, 2015 ... lost in, or at least meandered aimlessly about, the deserts of our broken hearts, our anxious-ridden minds, our frighten imaginations, our disoriented lives. And in these desert-like spaces, haven't you and I experience vulnerability? Haven't we felt exiled or cut-off from all our comforts and our securities, even from those we depend on to walk with us and to love us? I am sure that none of us wishes to find ourselves in such desert spaces where we struggle to simply exist, not even flourish. ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2015/02/homily-into-desert.html

Lent, Time for Spiritual Battle Against Evil VIS NEWS - HOLY SEE PRESS OFFICE - February 23, 2015 Vatican City, 22 February 2015 (VIS) – Lent, the liturgical time that refers to the forty days Jesus spent in the desert after his baptism in the river Jordan, was the subject of the Pope's reflection before this Sunday's Angelus prayer with the faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square. On the first Sunday of Lent, Francis explained that during these forty days of solitude in which Jesus prepared himself to announce ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/02/lent-time-for-spiritual-battle-against.html

Whether Christian or Muslim, James Foley Remains a "Symbol of Faith Under Brutal Conditions" THE WILD REED - February 22, 2015 ... faith under the most brutal of conditions. One Catholic essayist compared him to St. Bartholomew , who died for his Christian faith. Others were drawn to Mr. Foley's account of praying the rosary during an earlier captivity in Libya. Even Pope Francis, in a condolence call to Mr. Foley's parents, described him as a martyr , according to the family. Then came an unexpected twist: It turned out that Mr. Foley was among several hostages in Syria who had converted to Islam in captivity, according ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2015/02/whether-christian-or-muslim-james-foley.html

1st Sunday of Lent, Year B FATHER DYLAN'S SERMONS - February 21, 2015 ... however, I find myself not in the mood for Lent. I'm not in the mood to enter into a period of 40 days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. It somehow feels as if we have only just had Christmas. So, as I've been thinking much of this past week: I'm not in the mood. But I've also been thinking that maybe this makes Lent all the more important for me this year. I was thinking about the phrase in the Gospel we heard, where St Mark describes the ...http://fatherdylanjames.blogspot.com/2015/02/1st-sunday-of-lent-year-b.html

This Is What Faith Looks Like - Homily - 22 February 2015 SERVANT AND STEWARD - February 21, 2015 ... now find ourselves within this sacred season of Lent and – since it comes by each year and lasts for some forty days – we might be tempted to think, "Here we go again." A few days ago, we let someone put ashes on our foreheads. Friday we did not eat meat. Today, we have come again to the altar of God. Has anything really changed in our thoughts or in our deeds? Has anything changed in us? Sure, we may have given up chocolate or other sweets, wine ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/7LNW_jDYw0g/this-is-what-faith-looks-like-homily-22.html

Catholicism Lenten Reflection DA MIHI ANIMAS - February 19, 2015 ... Saint Edith Stein entered the Carmelite Order, a community whose evangelical witness demonstrates a radical poverty, rigorous commitment to prayer and detachment from worldly pre-occupations. One of the great spiritual masters of the Carmelite Order is St. John of the Cross. Saint John of the Cross wrote eloquently of the "dark night of the soul" or the feeling that God was distant and that one's spiritual practices afforded little, if any, emotional consolation. This dark ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/02/catholicism-lenten-reflection.html

He added that the families of the ex-patriate workers are "congratulating one another" and not in despair: "We are proud to have this number of people from our village who have become martyrs," he told the programme. He said: "Since the Roman era, Christians have been martyred and have learned to handle everything that comes our way. This only makes us stronger in our faith because the Bible told us to love our enemies and bless those who ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/6i4jfeyMXwQ/remembering-coptic-martyrs.html

Way of the Cross for Persecuted Christians NUNBLOG - February 19, 2015 Fridays of Lent are days of special focus on the cross, making the Way of the Cross the Friday prayer par excellence. I am posting this on Thursday so that you will have it at the ready no matter what time you choose to pray the Way of the Cross. These meditations come from the Maronite Bishop of Syria, where the way of the Cross is no pious exercise, but a daily sharing in the cup of suffering that even Jesus asked to be spared. "Blessed Are They Who ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2015/02/way-of-cross-for-persecuted-christians.html

February 18 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - February 18, 2015 Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation! The days of Lent are here, already. Once again we begin a 40 day focal period , which is meant to correspond to the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting and praying in the desert , and being tempted by the Devil, preparing for his public ministry. We would be foolish to think that the Devil is not still around in our day. I think it is pretty obvious in ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/02/february-18-homily-for-today.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/

Love Will Steer Me True: A Conversation With Authors Jane and Ellen Knuth RANDOM ACTS OF MOMNESS - February 18, 2015 My pre-mom life involved two extended stays in Paris: I studied abroad for one semester in college, then returned after graduation to teach English for a year. Both experiences were exciting, rewarding, life-changing. But I have to admit that at the time, I gave very little thought to how my mom was handling it all. As a parent myself now, I have a sense of how hard that separation was for her. My kids are still young, but when I think of one of them someday doing what I ...http://randomactsofmomness.com/love-will-steer-me-true-a-conversation-with-authors-jane-and-ellen-knuth/

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 day," the day of ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/eojD/~3/3f1W9p8dvGY/a-lenten-calendar-for-catholic-children.html

The First Sunday of Lent IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - February 18, 2015 ... 9:8-15; Psalm 25; 1 Peter 3:18-22; Mark 1:12-15 When Noah and his family stood on solid ground after the great flood, God established a covenant with all creatures declaring that God would never again devastate the earth. The bow set in the sky was a sign of God's enduring fidelity and it is a sign that continues to be seen in our Eucharistic prayers. In the second reading, Peter tells us that the waters of Noah prefigured baptism, which now saves us. He writes, "It is not a ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-first-sunday-of-lent.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.
