Maria, Abbatissa Nostra VULTUS CHRISTI - August 15, 2014 Our Lady, Our Abbess, Our Queen Writing in an essay in the book Priez sans cesse – 300 ans de prière , (Desclée de Brouwer, Editeur, Paris, 1953, p. 177), Dom Jean Leclercq, O.S.B. demonstrates that a Benedictine devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, under the title of Abbess, was not uncommon in the Middle Ages. Originating in monasteries of the Cluniac obedience, devotion to the Blessed Virgin as Abbess was also not ...http://vultus.stblogs.org/index.php/2014/08/maria-abbatissa-nostra/

St. Clare of Assisi ATONEMENTONLINE - August 10, 2014 ... of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, the invaders ran away, and the sisters were safe. In 1958 Pope Pius XII designated St. Clare as the patron saint of television. One Christmas Eve, when she was too sick to get up from her bed to get to Mass, she was very disappointed. She prayed that God would allow her to take part in the Mass. Although she was more than a mile away she saw Mass on the wall of her dormitory. So clear was the vision that the next day she could name the friars at the ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2014/08/st-clare-of-assisi.html

Into Your Hands, My Abbess THE CLOISTERED HEART - July 21, 2014 ... have an abbess who truly cares about our personal stresses and trials. We need an abbess who can help us live in the midst of the world and not be of it. Ours must be a Mother who can nurture us, care for our lives of "enclosure," and show us what it means to say and become a total yes to God. "Mary said a total yes to God. Thus she lived enclosure in His will fully. She embraced His will so totally that He became enfleshed in her. She listened to Him more ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2014/07/into-your-hands-my-abbess.html

Our Lady in the Chapter Room VULTUS CHRISTI - July 16, 2014 ... Love in whose merciful goodness we place our trust. The statue of Our Lady Abbess is in the very centre of the Chapter Room; she is enthroned above the place where the prior sits each day to explain the Holy Rule, the instruct, comfort, encourage, and correct the brethren. To all who open the ear of their heart to her, Our Lady says: "I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope.

Two Weeks of Worthy Women: Hrotsvitha CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - July 3, 2014 ... History. And plays. We can surmise she was a scholar as she wrote in Latin and gave hints she was familiar with the classical works of a number of Roman poets. She seemed to have a thing about writing about female martyrs, or men who rescued women from a life of sin. She began writing about 968AD. She may have died in 973. Or 1002. Nobody knows for sure. Her literary works weren't discovered until 1500, and we probably don't have everything she produced. I, the strong voice of Gandersheim, ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/07/03/two-weeks-of-worthy-women-hrotsvitha/

Two Eucharistic Pieces From My Drafting Board NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - June 19, 2014 ... originally planned to show her accompanied by an angel, as one sees in several prints of her visions, but as accounts of her vision mention no angels, and several depict her alone, it seemed to me an unnecessary addition. The border depicts grape vines and wheat, and is inspired by some of the art in the old Belgian Bulletin Paroissial Liturgique , appropriately enough, with a small Host at the top, and in the four corners, clockwise, the papal arms, the arms of Urban IV, the arms of ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/hKbfEg318ks/two-eucharistic-pieces-from-my-drafting.html

Bishop Faith THE ONE TRUE FAITH - June 17, 2014 ... mistake or not, and therefore it is in her icons… Often confused with St. Bridget of Sweden, but they are two very different saints. (Source: theraccolta ) So I reminded Bishop Edyvean of the story of St. Bridget's bishop giving her a crosier. He didn't take the hint and give me his. While I was standing there holding the staff, many of my "cloistered brothers" came over to congratulate me on my elevation to the bishopric. They also took my hand and mockingly kissed my ring. We had four ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2014/06/bishop-faith.html

Eye and Ear Openers THE ONE TRUE FAITH - May 20, 2014 ... abbey, today. I was attending daily Mass and looked over at the nuns' section, and they had no shepherdess. The stall for the Abbess was empty. Mass was being celebrated by three or four monks. And it was a Mass for the Holy Spirit. What was going on? The Conventual Chapter was electing a new Abbess, today. It was a special occasion. Looking at their Facebook page, I see that Mother Maureen McCabe was reelected for a second six year term. May God bless her ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2014/05/eye-and-ear-openers.html

Book Review: Abbess of Andalusia CATHOLICANUCK - May 16, 2014 The Abbess of Andalusia was the first book I've read about Miss O'Connor and it has not been the last. Flannery O'Connor's style is jarring to many. It was when she was alive, and it remains so. To understand why she wrote as she did, it is important to find out about her,as a person. Ms. Murray's work is among the books that seeks to help with this. Lorraine V. Murray makes her observations as a Catholic. This is very important in reading Miss O'Connor, who was ...http://catholicanuck.blogspot.com/2014/05/book-review-abbess-of-andalusia.html

It's Never Too Early to Learn About This Woman: A Review of "Hildegard's Gift" RANDOM ACTS OF MOMNESS - May 12, 2014 ... Megan Hoyt and illustrated by David Hill. It's a lovely way to introduce kids to this fascinating woman, and to light the spark of their interest in strong spiritual women from the past. The book starts in Hildegard's childhood, describing her visionary "gift" — the ability to see unique images and pictures and put them on paper. Her gift follows her into adulthood, and the author does not shy away from showing that this gift was not all rosy; Hildegard suffered from great headaches and ...http://randomactsofmomness.com/its-never-too-early-to-learn-about-this-woman-a-review-of-hildegards-gift/
