Here in Washington the AAA has predicted that some 840,000+ folks will be driving away from the city. Of course that statistic easily leads to cynical thoughts about nothing political happening in DC. However, today as we recall Jesus' relative, John, the great evangelizer. We know much about his life. Much more than we know about many of his contemporaries. However, my thoughts today are about all the work that was required of this ...http://prayeronthehill.blogspot.com/2014/08/pre-labor-day-thoughts.html

His conversion story is beautiful and one that I can relate to in my own life as a revert to the Catholic faith, but what is most amazing about his life is the fact that he remained faithful and grew in holiness and virtue, becoming a saint. I added some wonderful quotes to this post, which reveal the beauty of his love for the Lord. 2.

Who is Henry Rollins? He is punk singer, formerly the front man for the thrash punk group Black Flag. He has recorded a number of spoken word albums, hosted a radio show, and is generally a kind of counter-cultural figure.

Life, Death, and Life Again TEN THOUSAND PLACES - August 27, 2014 ... end—this, all things considered, can only be monotonous and ultimately unbearable. This is precisely the point made, for example, by Saint Ambrose, one of the Church Fathers, in the funeral discourse for his deceased brother Satyrus: "Death was not part of nature; it became part of nature. God did not decree death from the beginning; he prescribed it as a remedy. Human life, because of sin ... began to experience the burden of wretchedness in unremitting ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/08/life-death-and-life-again.html

He loves you and has called you to experience that divine love fully as a Benedictine monk, a man whose heart is fixed on God alone. So perhaps it would be appropriate to say a few words about stability, which is, after all, one of the three monastic vows and the one that really binds together obedience and conversatio morum and makes it possible to live them out on a daily basis at Belmont as in every other monastic community that ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2014/08/homily-on-perseverance-in-stability-by.html

The cardinal appointment was John Paul II's recognition of his old ski companion's contributions to ecclesiology studies.

And he celebrated a liturgy of thanksgiving at the Shrine of the Virgin of Fatima -- almost at the same time that Benedict XVI was ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/08/st-john-paul-ii-and-friendship.html

James Foley: "Prayer Was the Glue That Enabled My Freedom, an Inner Freedom" THE WILD REED - August 21, 2014 "Prayer was the glue that enabled my freedom, an inner freedom . . ." Photojournalist James Foley wrote these words in 2011, when reflecting on the 44 days he and two others were held captive in Libya . He went on to say that prayer, in this instance, also enabled "the miracle of being released during a war in which the regime had no real incentive to free us."

In the midst of this violence, we, as individuals and as a community, have been entrusted by Christ with the ministry of reconciliation. But what can we do in the midst of such conflict and division? How do we begin to exercise our ministry of reconciliation— we who, ourselves, so often think in terms of "us" and "them," we who, ourselves, often need so desperately to be reconciled? Perhaps at ...http://homileticdiakonia.blogspot.com/2014/08/twentieth-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

The Feast of Mary's Assumption: A Time to REFOCUS FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - August 15, 2014 ... and on those things that are most important in life. Let me give you a few examples. The feast of the Assumption, first of all, reminds us of our mortality. It reminds us that we're not here forever; that, as the Letter to the Hebrews tells us, we do not have on this earth "a lasting city ." We can sometimes forget that—even in the winter. The Assumption marked the terminal point of our Blessed Mother's earthly life; although the Church leaves open the question of whether Mary physically ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-feast-of-marys-assumption-time-to.html

The Golden Hail Mary ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - August 14, 2014 I once had a prayer card with a beautiful poem entitled "The Golden Hail Mary." After many years and several moves, I can no longer locate it, but I always remember reading it over and over some days. I have searched high and low for that poem online and have not been able to find it again. The gist of the message was though, that a simple Hail Mary said in haste is worth more than many other prayers repeated at length. source The Hail Mary ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-golden-hail-mary.html

St. Maximilian Kolbe: Priest, Saint and Hero DA MIHI ANIMAS - August 14, 2014 ... 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/2014/08/st-maximilian-kolbe-priest-saint-and.html

Bishops Silva and Paprocki: Priests May Use the Mass for Persecuted Christians This Sunday SERVANT AND STEWARD - August 14, 2014 The Roman Missal contains texts for the offering of the Holy Mass for a great many intentions, from a prayer in thanksgiving for the gift of human life to a petition for a happy death (and nearly every occasion in between in the life of the Church and of the world). These texts for ritual Masses, as they are named, are not used very often because, on the one hand, many days in the liturgical calendar already contain the memorials of the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/hjBMuP29ifQ/bishops-silva-and-paprocki-priests-may.html

Of Martyrdoms, Migraines and Moods THE CLOISTERED HEART - August 14, 2014 ... cell, wasting away for the sake of Christ. I have been thinking of others, too; of martyrs down through the ages. I've thought about people still standing for Christ today, refusing to renounce Him now. And I've thought about me. All day I have battled a headache, a "common" migraine. The kind that makes a person feel as if a bruised brain is rattling around inside a battered skull. Which sounds rather dramatic, I know, especially since I've been able to function. I was even able to get to ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2014/08/of-martyrdoms-migraines-and-moods.html

Like a Gentle Rain to Soften Every Heart VULTUS CHRISTI - August 14, 2014 ... litany is a fine example of the forms of prayer peculiar to the early Irish Church, and a strong proof of the veneration in which our forefathers held the Holy Mother of God.

The prayer at the conclusion of the litany is a consecration of Ireland to the Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God. O GREAT MARY , pray for Ireland.
