Be Catholic to Save the World by Grace! Some Words of Encouragement From the Early Church COMMUNITY IN MISSION - August 26, 2015 ... texts. Earlier this week we read from St. John Chrysostom, who knew all about exile and persecution. At a difficult time for him and his flock, he preached from the following text of St. Paul's: For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart." Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater ...http://blog.adw.org/2015/08/be-catholic-to-save-the-world-by-grace-some-words-of-encouragement-from-the-early-church/

Reflection: Matthew 23:1-12 THE DOME BLOG - August 22, 2015 ... Matthew 23:1-12 Jesus continues his diatribe on 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 they do nothing to relieve the people of these burdens. Jesus also is critical of their motivation for the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-231-12.html

Hebrews is a masterful treatise on the eternal sacrifice of Jesus. James wrote one letter; Peter wrote two letters, John wrote three—plus the Book of Revelation —and Jude wrote one. Other gospels and letters were written but did not make it into the canon of the New Testament. While many Protestants claim that we "added books" to the Old ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/08/the-bible-is-catholic.html

This state of definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed is called "hell." 1034 Jesus often speaks of "Gehenna" of "the unquenchable fire" reserved for those who to the end of their lives refuse to believe and be converted, where both soul and body can be lost. [ Matt 5:22 ] Jesus solemnly proclaims that he "will send his angels, and they will gather . . . all evil doers, and throw them into the furnace of fire," [ Matt 13:41-42 ] and that he will pronounce the ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/07/what-does-church-teach-about-hell.html

Comments on Mary DISPUTATIONS - July 25, 2015 ... to her. Devotion to Mary is not optional. Devotions to Mary are. By that, I mean we are obligated to love and honor Mary, but we are not obligated to use a particular means of devotion, like the Rosary, litanies, Immaculate Heart devotion, and so forth. As for St. Louis, my advice is that Protestants who are struggling with Catholic devotion to Mary not read him and stick to more doctrinal and dispassionate sources. Plenty of Catholics -- in his own lifetime as well as today ...http://disputations.blogspot.com/2015/07/comments-on-mary.html

They pray that the Lord's right hand will be with them, that his arm will make them strong (see Psalm 89:22 ). They are not alone in their sufferings. The Islamic state is also persecuting Christians in Syria and in Libya, Egypt, Somalia, and Nigeria as more and more Islamic terror groups like Boko Haram and al-Shabaab pledge allegiance to the Islamic State.

Shock: What St. Peter Damian, a Doctor of the Church, Says About Homosexual Habits MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - June 29, 2015 ... acts are crimes against Nature and therefore crimes against God who is the author of Nature. It is also refreshing to find an ecclesiastic whose first and primary concern in the matter of clerical sexual immorality is for God's interests, not man's, especially with regard to homosexuality in clerical ranks. Also, his special condemnation of pederastic crimes by clergy against young boys and men (including those preparing for holy orders) made over nine hundred years ago, ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2015/06/shock-what-st-peter-damian-doctor-of.html

When I Am Weak MONASTERY OF THE HOLY CROSS - June 29, 2015 ... letter, filled with brutally honest pathos: "We do not want you to be ignorant brethren, of the affliction we experienced in Asia; for we were so utterly, unbearably crushed that we despaired of life itself. Why, we felt that we had received the sentence of death; but that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead." [2 Cor 1: 8-9] Peter suffered as well. In the gospel from the Vigil Mass for today's feast, Jesus says to Peter, "When you were young, ...http://chicagomonk.org/about-us/the-priors-blog/when-i-am-weak/

But I am only human and therefore a sinner who needs the grace of Our Lord, just like everyone else. So some things might slip past my editing. So let us begin. We do understand the justification people use in championing "same sex marriage." It is a combination two things. First, of thinking that love between any two consenting adults is love regardless of gender (hence the #loveislove hashtag), and feeling ...http://arnobius-of-sicca.blogspot.com/2015/06/an-open-letter-from-catholic-to.html

Column: Laudato Si': Let Us Sing As We Go QUANTUM THEOLOGY - June 19, 2015 ... Laudato Si' , Pope Francis' encyclical letter on caring for our common home, the Earth. All 40,000 and some odd words of it. It was a difficult read at times. Not because I lack the necessary background to appreciate either the science or the theology — I have a Ph.D. in chemistry, did some of my graduate research on atmospheric chemistry with Sherry Rowland, who won the Nobel prize for his work on ozone depletion, and have completed many hours of graduate theology ...http://quantumtheology.blogspot.com/2015/06/column-laudato-si-let-us-sing-as-we-go.html

German Bishops Have Prepared the Way for a De Facto Schism CRISIS MAGAZINE - June 10, 2015 ... the German bishops' conference in February of this year, Cardinal Marx said at a press conference that the German bishops were not affiliates of Rome, but were autonomous in terms of their pastoral care. This is an interesting new appropriation of the meaning of pastoral, for it includes some doctrinal changes, despite what he may claim. However, Marx's outrageous statements were challenged by the German cardinal Paul Cordes in an incisive, and at times, ironical letter to the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/5R4syIhHap8/german-bishops-have-prepared-the-way-for-a-de-facto-schism

It means suffering, indeed any weakness, shapes us more like Jesus; it imprints Jesus' identity on us most deeply. God became human in Jesus to serve and not to be served. 12 Serving is an exercise of human freedom. When Christians serve they donate their freedom as Jesus modeled. Holy Spirit, the identity of Jesus, animates us the more we: do not hide behind defenses; do not let our hearts grow cold and hard; do not ...http://findfruit.blogspot.com/2015/05/sunday-word-31-may-15.html

"The prophetic texts that directly concern the sending of the Holy Spirit are oracles by which God speaks to the heart of his people in the language of the promise, with the accents of "love and fidelity." [Ezek 11:19; 36:25-28; 37:1-14; Jer 31:31-34; and cf. Joel 3:1-5] St. Peter proclaimed their fulfillment on the morning of Pentecost.

Beyond that many of us might be a little puzzled about how other solemnities and feasts rank in order of importance. This is why I think it is necessary to point out that there is no more important Christian observance than Easter, which means there is no more ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/05/year-b-pentecost.html

His gifts are boundless. But are we ready to receive them and put them to their proper use? Paul tells us in his letter to the Corinthians, "There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit. . .To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit."
