Christian Spirituality XIII: The Persecuted PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - September 16, 2016 ... Church. Our problem today is that we want to be members of the Church while living like pagans. Of course, others might encounter even more suffering. I pray for the Middle East Christians daily. I'd encourage you to do the same and, if you are able, find a group to contribute financially as well. Their suffering is terrible. Rape, slavery, torture, and death are widespread. There is an ideological terrorism going on as well, which Pope Francis has been outspoken about. Thousands of women in ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2016/09/christian-spirituality-xiii-persecuted.html

A Defense of the Christian Teaching Against Contraception CRISIS MAGAZINE - September 15, 2016 ... was no mere regulation for the day-to-day life of the Catholic community, subject to change. It wasn't like the requirement to give up meat on Fridays in Lent. It was required, they taught, by the "natural moral law." Why? Because a married couple's choice to contracept goes against the human good. But there isn't just one right account of why and how. The Church is in the business of preaching the Gospel, not running philosophy seminars. It doesn't usually endorse particular philosophical ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/0OU-T4SnVSs/defense-christian-teaching-contraception

A Name Loved by Angels and Terrible to Demons SERVANT AND STEWARD - September 12, 2016 ... of the Lord appeared to you and told you that you would give birth to the One who was the hope of Israel, the One awaited by the world. Through you, through your "yes", the hope of the ages became reality, entering this world and its history. You bowed low before the greatness of this task and gave your consent: "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word" ( Lk 1:38). When you hastened with holy joy across the mountains of Judea to see your cousin Elizabeth, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/Sdu3Tr3Q2P0/as-we-celebrate-today-memorial-of-holy.html

A Letter to "Dear Abby" Re. Responding to 9/11 THE WILD REED - September 11, 2016 ... your column being used as a propaganda tool of the Pentagon ("Secretary of Defense Thanks the Military," 5/24/02). Contrary to your insistence, we are not all "united" in support of the so-called "War on Terrorism." Over 50,000 U.S. citizens, for instance – including many who lost loved ones in the terrorist attacks of September 11, converged on Washington, D.C. on April 20 to express the growing global realization that war is not the way to address and eradicate terrorism. Currently, ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2016/09/a-letter-to-dear-abby-re-responding-to.html

The Homily G-MANS JOURNEY - September 11, 2016 ... one of pure love and mercy. During the First Reading from the Book of Exodus [Exo. 32:7-11, 13-14] that is found in the Old Testament, we heard that while Moses was on Mount Sinai talking to God, the Lord became very upset because His chosen people were acting perversely. They had casted for themselves an image of a calf, worshipped it and sacrificed to it, giving credit to the idol for bringing them out of slavery in the land of Egypt. Greatly offended by the people for ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2016/09/the-homily.html

Set Free SPIRITUAL DEVOTIONAL - September 5, 2016 ... Onesimus back to his master. Others have even suggested that Paul's letter to Philemon is a clear justification for slavery. But, NOTHING could be further from the Truth! Paul tells Philemon quite clearly that Onesimus is "[his] own heart"; that Onesimus is his own child; that he is Onesimus' 'father'; that Onesimus "is no longer a slave, but a brother, beyond beloved especially to me." In closing, Paul exhorts Philemon to "welcome him as you would me." This passage shows me ...http://spiritualdevotional.blogspot.com/2016/09/set-free.html

Homily G-MANS JOURNEY - September 4, 2016 ... Now, St. Paul was appealing to Philemon's good will to welcome Onesimus back while hinting how useful the slave had been to him. In today's Reading, Paul begins by referring to himself as an old man and a prisoner of Christ Jesus. [Phlm. 9] In those days, an old man would have been considered around the ages of 50 to 60. In his reference to being a prisoner of Christ Jesus, St. Paul was not seeking sympathy. He may have been hinting of his senior status in the Christian community, possibly ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2016/09/homily.html

Homily: Now Here, Not Nowhere BUKAS PALAD - September 4, 2016 ... God's Word. Here to let God nourish us with Jesus, our daily bread. Here we are aware of our faults, mistakes and sinfulness. But here we are always as God's children, trying to live our Christian lives as best as we can in God's ways. Isn't this why we are bothered, befuddled and bewildered when we feel God is absent from our lives? Don't we feel caught between believing in God and being unsure that God is with us? In such moments we might echo King Mongkut's cry in the play, The King and I , ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2016/09/homily-now-here-not-nowhere.html

The Call to Sacrifice Everything for God CRISIS MAGAZINE - August 24, 2016 ... stops me dead in my tracks. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood. Now why should that give me pause? Give anyone pause, for that matter? Because, like the seasoned cynicism of Oscar Wilde, whenever temptation strikes—oh, every half-minute or so—one's first impulse is simply to give in and, poof, it all goes magically away. In other words, far from resisting to the point of shedding anything, the recommended practice is never to ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/O8HdA9gym0s/call-sacrifice-everything-god

No, the letter implies, they are to keep the faith, assist, the poor, and support one another. The practice of the saints should move us from self-concern to devotion to others. Certainly there is no shortage of self-love in our times deafening us to the teachings of Christ. Thankfully, we have saints today as much as in times past to show us that God commands us ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2016/08/tuesday-august-23-2016.html

Reflection: Matthew 23:1-12 THE DOME BLOG - August 20, 2016 ... Jesus continues his diatribe against the Pharisees. He says to the people: "The scribes and Pharisees do observe the letter of the law completely." However, Jesus then instructs the people not to follow the example of the scribes and Pharisees. Jesus is angry with them. He criticizes the Pharisees for the many burdens they place on the people's shoulders and that they do nothing to relieve the people of these burdens. Jesus also is critical of their motivation for the good ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/08/reflection-matthew-231-12.html

St Thomas As a Teacher THOMAS FOR TODAY - July 11, 2016 ... Scriptural commentaries of Thomas. They're very fascinating. I came across an interesting parallel text between his commentary on the letter to the Hebrews, and q. 36 in the first part of the Summa. Both works come from his time teaching in Italy from 1265 to 1268. Although the two passages are dealing with different theological questions, when he talks about types of causes he uses the same examples in both of them. Perhaps he was in the habit of using similar examples in his ...http://thomasfortoday.blogspot.com/2016/07/st-thomas-as-teacher.html

Homily G-MANS JOURNEY - July 3, 2016 ... us who mourn over her. [Is. 66:10] Based on these words, it appears that our joy should be for the physical City of Jerusalem. The verse that follows implies that Jerusalem is alive, being a life giving body. It states, "that you may nurse and be satisfied from her consoling breasts; that you may drink deeply with delight from her glorious bosom." [Is. 66:11] In actuality, these verses speak of the arrival of the spiritual Kingdom of God on earth in Jerusalem on Pentecost Day. In those days, ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2016/07/homily.html

The Real Difficulty in Doing Justice and Mercy God's Style REFLECTIONS AND RUMINATIONS - July 3, 2016 ... of their resistance of this influx is given a very sound economic and social rationale. Their own job security is threatened, there are resources that are thinned out because of a larger population requiring more from what is limited, and social problems become rife whenever groups within extant established citizenry exhibit any form of resistance towards an integration from non-indigenous people. While all this makes good sense even if just on an economic level, a protectionist mentality ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2016/07/the-real-difficulty-in-doing-justice.html

Christian Freedom HEART FOR GOD - June 26, 2016 ... the Galatians is a great example. We discover a very Pauline vocabulary with words such as freedom, law, love, flesh and Spirit. One of the gifts God gave to his human creation was freedom . We have a "free-will" that can make rational and autonomous choices. That is why our world is broken today; Adam and Eve chose to disobey. Inherent with freedom is an inevitable repercussion. The Catechism says: Freedom makes man a moral subject. When he acts deliberately, ...http://heartforgodltd.blogspot.com/2016/06/christian-freedom.html

As he usually did with the greatest themes (the Church, in Mystici Corporis Christi ; the Sacred Liturgy, in Mediator Dei ), he presented a true guidebook to the subject: one may safely say that all one needs to know and admire, all doubts and misunderstandings, all issues related to this most august object of adoration, the Sacred Heart of Our Lord, are answered in this ...http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2016/06/draw-living-waters-60-years-of.html

Even if Mateen were living in some medieval, idealized Muslim city, ruled by the Shariah and free from all the evils of the modern world, he would be dragged in chains before the kadi (judge) on the charge of mass murder. – Jonathan Brown Excerpted from " The Shariah, Homosexuality, and Safeguarding Each Other's Rights in a Pluralist ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2016/06/progressive-perspectives-on-islam-and_23.html

There's the Door THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - June 15, 2016 ... over children. I knew enough about this to decide never become a school teacher, but obviously not enough to avoid all like occasions. The new position was one where I took a far more patient and gentle approach. That wasn't good enough for certain elements who thought I wasn't harsh enough. I knew, however, that as soon as I started to severely discipline the kids, I would be out. It's a no-win situation. I know that now, completely, finally. But because a layman is completely without any ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2015/10/theres-door.html
