How Could Father Leave the Priesthood? FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - August 13, 2017 ... diminished. The waves, the winds, the fears, the distractions... they grab his attention and he starts focusing, thinking, worrying about those things instead of focusing, thinking, trusting  in Jesus who called him out on the water. As soon as he does, he becomes overwhelmed, he starts to flounder, he starts to sink. Being a disciple of Jesus Christ, a follower of His can be hard. We have heard all of the miracles and incredible stuff that He is capable of. We hear those ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2017/08/how-could-father-leave-priesthood.html

Fr. Peter J. Scagnelli, 1949-2017 ATONEMENTONLINE - July 17, 2017 A good friend and brother priest, Fr. Peter J. Scagnelli, died this past Wednesday. This is a picture of him when I was ordained to the priesthood in 1983. The ceremony called for a priest to present the one to be ordained to the bishop, and he did that for me. It was just a year ago that God gave me the overwhelming feeling that I should go to Massachusetts and visit him. Although we kept in constant touch by telephone and text, we hadn't actually seen one another in ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2017/07/fr-peter-j-scagnelli-1949-2017.html

Roaming Catholics: Church Hopping With Purpose PRINTS OF GRACE - July 9, 2017 ... in Richmond and the surrounding areas. We go to Mass each week to receive the Word of God and a person, Jesus Christ's Body and Blood in the Eucharist. Regardless of where we go, the Scripture readings will likely be the same as they are everywhere else in the world that particular day, and we can count on taking part in the Communion celebration. An added bonus is a thought-provoking homily. We've been popping up where John's been preaching because we know he has a knack for teaching and ...http://printsofgrace.blogspot.com/2017/07/Roaming-Catholics-Church-Hopping-with-Purpose.html

Alcoholic Disorder in Korea CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - July 6, 2017 "Teacher, I heard the lecture today. I have prepared a simple meal so let's have a drink." These words begin the View from the Ark article in the Catholic Times. The writer is responsible for the Alcoholic Treatment Center at a Catholic Hospital. The lecture was given to a Catholic audience. Both the person who mentioned the drink and the lecturer had an embarrassed smile on their faces. The topic of the lecture was alcoholic addiction. To send off the lecturer without ...http://catholicamericaneyesinkorea.blogspot.com/2017/07/alcoholic-disorder-in-korea.html

"I'm With Them." A FRIAR'S LIFE - July 1, 2017 ... must think of yourselves as living for God in Christ." But, beautiful though they are, what does it mean to say that we are living for God in Christ? Jesus today goes even farther in the Gospel today to talk about what it means to be a worthy follower of Him. I just finished a wonderful vacation relaxing by the beach in Hampton, NH, and this gave me a chance to catch up on some things. Among them, I really enjoy an podcast called "On Being" which interviews a variety of people ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2017/07/im-with-them.html

A Visit to Grand Marais THE WILD REED - June 23, 2017 This time last week my friend Kathleen and I were in Grand Marais, a town on Minnesota's North Shore of Lake Superior. It's a beautiful area of the state, and one which I had not visited since 2004. The area is renowned for its alternating rocky cliffs and cobblestone beaches, with forested hills and ridges through which rivers and waterfalls descend as they flow to Lake Superior. Above: With Judy, a friend of both Kathleen and I. Judy lives ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2017/06/a-visit-to-grand-marais.html

Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 6/18 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - June 17, 2017 Image source 46 years ago when I was in the seminary, a good friend asked me what I believed about the Eucharist. I knew he wasn't looking for text book answers but rather for what was in my heart. I wrote the following in response to his question. I know that writing this helped me and I believe it helped my friend, too. As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ , perhaps you'll find these words helpful as you pause ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2017/06/pause-for-prayer-sunday-618.html

Peace Be With You - If You Choose FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - June 4, 2017 ... anniversary celebration this afternoon, I didn't have to prepare a homily myself for the celebration of Pentecost. I had looked at and discussed the readings on "The Catholic Guy Show"; the Sirius/XM Satellite Radio show I co-host on Thursdays and Fridays for one of the segments called "homily on the spot." That's the bit where the host Lino Rulli will read the gospel and want me to give an instant homily... which rarely goes well for me (which is one of the comedic aspects for sure). So I ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2017/06/peace-be-with-you-if-you-choose.html

And it's for the same reason that we sinners go to Christ. "They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." (Luke 5:31) Something else to keep in mind: Christ dined with and interacted with those sinners who came to him. They were repentant. They sought Him because they desired holiness. Jesus was not ever seen fraternizing with unrepentant evildoers who had no ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2017/05/on-trotting-out-jesus-hung-out-with.html

It's still the common anchor point in our day that I hoped it would be all those years ago. And it has been a blessing. So I took a page out of my own book and created my own Morning Basket. A Morning Basket for me. My basket of truth, goodness, and beauty!

Finally Laid to Rest BEYOND PEARLS... - May 20, 2017 ... proof arrive we confirmed that it was what we wanted: We went back, over the next month, waiting for it to arrive. And finally, on Mother's Day, it was there: Seeing it, having a place to visit and knowing that he had been buried has been healing. I can't help but feel that the gift of going to pray for the souls of people we've known and loved, and friends of friends, and all those who've gone before us, has given me a greater peace than I could have imagined possible back when I was writing ...http://www.cammiediane.com/2017/05/finally-laid-to-rest.html

Guaranteed Fixes for Everything!!!! FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - April 30, 2017 ... failures. Because  my focus was on me and what I wanted to do... I was going to logically convince them they were wrong - I was going to get them to go to Church, be a part of a community, fix whatever problem or mistakes, so that - so what, exactly? So that I'd feel important? So that I'd be right? So that I'd feel I earned my paycheck that week? What I finally learned was that it's not until you go through your own tough times, your own struggles, your own times of doubt and ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2017/04/guaranteed-fixes-for-everything.html

With my husband recovering from long-term illness and unable to work, I knew I had to do something to provide our family with some income. And with 3 young children, I knew the only viable option was to work from home. Running a small business from home wasn't a new thing for me. I had experience of working from home before with a wedding cake business that I was forced to close due to the change in the marriage laws. And after a priest friend suggest I ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/R1gnTMqM_9M/a-vestment-makers-birthday-present-for.html

At the Movies - In the Living Room BACK BAY VIEW - April 27, 2017 ... that earned it a PG-13 rating, but the language came out of the mouth of a reprehensible character and added to the development of the story of Robinson's strength of character, so it didn't feel gratuitous. Even though he was taunted and belittled by both his own team at first, and competitors, he fought down the urge to fight back, but chose the road of nonviolent, gentlemanly behavior. This caused his team to rally behind him and created unity on the team. The movie made the racism of the ...http://backbayview.blogspot.com/2017/04/at-movies-in-living-room.html

JPII, We Miss You DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - April 23, 2017 ... Holy Week, this Easter Week? I don't know, but a light has shined in my heart throughout these days. Yesterday, breakfast with my friend was most pleasant; the time passed quickly, and I almost didn't notice the repetitions of his words and thoughts, the signs of his Alzheimer's disease. I found pleasure as I watched his face smile as he described the small pleasures of his day, and then again as he watched the video screen in front of the little girl seated ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2017/04/jpii-we-miss-you.html
