Grace CONFESSIONS OF A CATHOLIC MUTT - August 25, 2016 ... for the most part I think singleness is not a particular vocation. I believe that I am called to marriage. I fully understand that I may never get married, but that doesn't negate what my calling is. I think that within marriage there is the call to fruitfulness, specifically through new life and children. I understand for some couples that will never happen, and that in no way negates their calling to marriage in general, to each other in particular, nor does it lessen the importance of their ...http://catholicmutt.blogspot.com/2016/08/grace.html

Monday Musings - Our Priests Need and Deserve Our Support! HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - August 22, 2016 ... priests can be criticized and challenged by their own flock - receiving little support and understanding. And the world's perception of the magnificent gift of the priesthood has been tarnished by scandal - p riests who have fallen under the weight of temptation and weakness. This is just one, stunning example of why we, the laity must pray! Yet through it all, every day, our priests are there for us - d oing for our souls, what only a priest can. Thanks to them we have the privilege of ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2016/08/monday-musings-our-priests-need-and.html

Saint Helena of Constantinople CATHOLIC FIRE - August 18, 2016 ... Helena also became a Christian. As empress, Helena spent her days in acts of charity, and built magnificent churches on the holy sites of the faith, frequently tearing down pagan temples that had been built on those sites.

Terrorism and Communications: An Invitation to Pauline Reparation NUNBLOG - August 18, 2016 ... period of "serious upheaval" (Alberione's memoirs) during which, with extraordinary faith, our Founder laid the foundations for what would become the Pauline Family. The date was August 1914, the eve of a horrendous world war. But for the Pauline Congregations, tragic moments such as this have also been occasions for growth in faith, in reciprocal communion, in a spirit of atonement, in a more conscious apostolic participation "in the many sufferings of the world" (Mother Thecla). Today too, ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2016/08/terrorism-and-communications-invitation.html

St. Maximilian Kolbe: Priest, Saint and Hero DA MIHI ANIMAS - August 14, 2016 ... of his Christian holiness. He breathed heaven into the darkest hell on earth, psalmody into the wailing dungeon, joy into the pit of despair, and love into the epitome of hate. As his Master on the Cross had done, he reminded all Christians, and all humanity, that it is precisely in the darkest moments that mercy must shine most brightly. Indeed, I am convinced that it is on this hinge that the 'success' of the new evangelization hangs — we are disciples of Christ Crucified in the face ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2016/08/st-maximilian-kolbe-priest-saint-and.html

St. Lawrence, Deacon and Martyr CATHOLIC FIRE - August 10, 2016 ... odor of sweetness." Lawrence was burning with so much love of God that he almost did not feel the flames. In fact, God gave him so much strength and joy that he even joked. "Turn me over. "I'm done on this side!" And just prior to his death, he said, "It's cooked enough now." Then he prayed that the city of Rome might be converted to Jesus and that the Catholic Faith might spread all over the world. With that, he went to His heavenly reward.

She suffered serious illness for the last 27 years of her life. Her influence was such that popes, cardinals and bishops often came to consult her—but she never left the walls of San Damiano. A well-known story concerns her prayer and trust.

Three Men Who Have Affected My Faith and Life More Than I May Ever Realize This Side of Heaven: My Dad, My Uncle, and My PRINTS OF GRACE - August 10, 2016 ... corporal and spiritual works of mercy for my father during his final years. Decades of feeling totally inept at taking away or even alleviating his pain in body, mind, or spirit, was softened by being able to get him groceries, bring in his mail, take him to doctor appointments, bring him the Eucharist, and assure him of God's love. So much of the external elements of my dad's life got stripped away. No status symbols left. Near the end of his life, he had a weak body, a troubled mind, a ...http://printsofgrace.blogspot.com/2016/08/three-men-who-have-affected-my-faith.html

Give That to Them YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - August 7, 2016 ... Study Can we sort out three disparate readings on the Feast Day of the Great Preacher St. Dominic? First, we have a very Transfiguration-like reading from the prophet Ezekiel. This would have been a great option last Saturday paired with the Book of Daniel and the selection from Luke on the Mystery of the Transfiguration. However, we have it for today's reflection. In this passage, our God -- who transcends the powers of the human imagination -- is pictured here in the likeness of an enthroned ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/08/give-that-to-them.html

The cloud of the unknowing made way for the cloud of the unthinkable. We can only hope that the days and date chosen to drop the first bomb was just coincidental. Yet the very project itself used much imagery of faith even naming the test site Trinity.

The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast."

The name "Zacchaeus" would have made people back the think of the remembrance of God .

May we too now try to imitate the faithful memory of God and treasure the good things we have received in these days. In silence, let us remember ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2016/08/pope-benedict-and-nuclear-fission-pope.html

The fruit of the tree looks good to us – good for food, delightful to our eyes, desirable to make us wise (Gen 3: 6). The fruit seems like such a small thing. Yet God commands us not to eat it and disobedience to the word of God always ushers death into the world. This is what the demons want. They want to destroy us. They want to kill us. And they're pretty good at it. This is the bad news. Jesus Heals a Demon-possessed Boy Egyptian, Walters ...http://holydormition.blogspot.com/2016/07/jesus-christ-is-exorcist.html

Make Sure That You're Planning FAR ENOUGH Ahead FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - July 31, 2016 ... that the man had planned ahead—I don't think that was the problem at all. I believe the problem that Jesus had with this man was that the guy hadn't planned far enough ahead! He was planning ahead for the next 40 or 50 years—or for however long he expected to live in this world, but his existence was not going to come to an end with his physical death. After his death—which came a lot sooner than he ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2016/07/make-sure-that-youre-planning-far.html

A New Age P R WOMAN FOR CHRIST - July 28, 2016 Earlier this week we read of the violent death of 85 year old Father Jacques Hamel, a priest of the Diocese of Rouen, France. Two young men entered the Church in the small village of St. Etienne near Rouen. They killed Father after they forced him to his knees. The Church has lived through many persecutions, some memorialized by churches, statuary and monuments. I believe it was the early theologian Origen who said, "The blood of the martyrs is the seed of ...http://prwomanforchrist.blogspot.com/2016/07/a-new-age.html
