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

Tuesday, August 23, 2016 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - August 22, 2016 ... teachings of Christ. Evidently, they were rankled by new ideas at odds with what St. Paul taught. 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

Did Jesus Really Have Brothers and Sisters? SEASONS OF GRACE - May 24, 2016 ... altogether through false teachings and misguided prophecies. However, we do have Christ's promise that he would be with us always, until the end of time. With the protection of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity and of the Holy Spirit, we can rest assured that the Church will preserve the Gospel message with fidelity. From the earliest days following the Resurrection, the Church has believed that Mary was a perpetual virgin, and that Jesus had no biological brothers or sisters.

While, for Christians, Pentecost comes fifty days after Easter, on the Jewish calendar Pentecost is fifty days after Passover. The Hebrew word for this Jewish observance is Shavu'ot , or, as it is commonly referred to in English, the Festival of Weeks.
