Lenten Reflection: St. Therese and Little Ways JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - March 29, 2015 ... in St. Therese, whose meditations for Lent (which I read using this book ; same book I've used for the past five years). Those of you who've been reading this blog for a while know that I consider St. Therese a good friend. When I was at my uber liberal "Catholic" alma mater, I used a strand of her sacrifice beads during lectures because sometimes the professors wouldn't allow anyone to speak up to challenge what they would "teach." When I had a particularly bad day (and I had ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/03/lenten-reflection-st-therese-and-little.html

And once you enter into friendship with God, everything in your life begins to change. As you come to know him better, you find you want to reflect something of his infinite goodness in your own life. You are attracted to the practice of virtue.

Christ Sets Us Free, by Fr. Robert Barron CATHOLIC LIGHT - RADICAL FAITH & TRUST - March 17, 2015 ... as in the book of Genesis, God looked for Adam and Eve, who were hiding from him, so here God incarnate doesn't know where his friend Lazarus is. Then the Lord comes to the tomb. We hear that it was a cave with a stone laid across it. When things are dead, we bury them away, we hide them. When we feel spiritually dead, we lock ourselves up in the darkness of our own anxiety and egotism and fear. But there is a power, a divine power, sent into this world whose very purpose is ...http://tsahaylu.blogspot.com/2015/03/christ-sets-us-free-by-fr-robert-barron.html

We Want It All. EST QUOD EST - March 9, 2015 [The following apologia/meditation comes from our friend, Diane, and could have the title " Why I am not leaving the Catholic Church. " It echoes my mind precisely and I couldn't have put it better myself. Thanks, Diane.] Jesus, I Want It All! by Diane Years and years ago, I worked at an ad agency in downtown Winston-Salem. Every Advent, one of my colleagues there used to don a sparkly red graphic sweatshirt with the message: "Santa, I want it all!" I hereby claim a ...http://contrapauli.blogspot.com/2015/03/we-want-it-all.html

Peace Lily A BIT OF THE BLARNEY - March 5, 2015 There is something so very beautiful yet simple about a Peace Lily. It has beautiful blooms on strong stems. It seems to have dignity. It is a plant with a strong constitution. How else could it survive in my house or any house for that matter when one forgets to water it? But, it does. It reminds me when its leaves fall limp, and they spring up again when fed just to say, "Thank you?" It is so forgiving. If real peace could be this simple. ~~~~~~ Peace Lily ...http://bit-of-blarney.blogspot.com/2015/03/peace-lily.html

Splitting the Stuff: A Child's View DIVORCED CATHOLIC MOMS - March 4, 2015 ... recent divorce had been big and unfriendly and messy. She felt small and unnoticed; she had to provide for her own needs and hide what she loved and might be able to keep. A year later my own parents divorced. I still remember how empty the house felt after my dad moved out. With him went beautiful mirror he had refinished that hung in our dining room over an antique buffet. The pair of wooden candlesticks that sat on the buffet left with him, too. He probably took some other ...http://www.divorcedcatholicmoms.com/splitting-the-stuff-a-childs-view/

What Have I Gotten Myself Into? FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - March 1, 2015 ... It was cool up until now to hang with Jesus, to hear him preach some great words - do some impressive things - but, now they realized that was only the beginning of their relationship with Him. This would change their lives even more than following him to this point had done. What was going to happen next? As they are leaving he's warning them of his own Passion and Death... There's scary things on the horizon. What have I gotten myself into? Is it different for us? We come to ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2015/03/what-have-i-gotten-myself-into.html

A Church of Both Roots and Branches THE WILD REED - February 17, 2015 ... views? As in, who decides what areas the church should change with the times and which things should remain the same?" Here (with added links) was my response: Great question! I think the church is a community of both seekers and believers . In other words, it needs to be both conservative (in the best sense of the word) and progressive. Accordingly, I think of it as being like a tree, one which to be alive and healthy needs both roots and branches; needs to be both grounded ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2015/02/a-church-of-both-roots-and-branches.html

The "As Yourself" Part of the Commandment to Love Your Neighbor GOD IN ALL THINGS - February 14, 2015 ... about reflecting on romantic partners, but also other people whom we love – our parents, brothers and sisters, friends, teachers, children, etc. My mother has always told me that as a parent, one of the most difficult things about motherhood or fatherhood is that whenever your child hurts, you feel your child's pain ten times worse. I am not yet a mother, but as I have gotten older, I have realized that there is truth to this statement, and it need not only apply to the relationship ...http://godinallthings.com/2015/02/14/the-as-yourself-part-of-the-commandment-to-love-your-neighbor/

A Beautiful Collaboration THE WILD REED - February 11, 2015 "Hey, this is tailor made for you!" So said my friend Mick in introducing me via a Facebook message earlier today to photographer David LaChapelle 's stunning video of ballet star Sergei Polunin dancing to "Take Me to Church" by Irish musician Hozier . Mick's absolutely right of course. I mean, this beautiful collaboration (which I share below) addresses the (often interrelated) issues and topics that greatly interest me and which I've written extensively ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2015/02/a-beautiful-collaboration.html

Saint Josephine Bakhita: Witness of Humility DA MIHI ANIMAS - February 8, 2015 ... new name, Josephine. It was 9 January 1890. She did not know how to express her joy that day. Her big and expressive eyes sparkled, revealing deep emotions. From then on, she was often seen kissing the baptismal font and saying: "Here, I became a daughter of God!". When Mrs. Michieli returned from Africa to take her daughter and Bakhita, the latter, with unusual firmness and courage, expressed her desire to remain with the Canosian Sisters and to serve that God who had shown her so many proofs ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/02/saint-josephine-bakhita-witness-of.html

When Mrs. Michieli returned from Africa to take back her daughter and Bakhita, the latter, with unusual firmness and courage, expressed her desire to remain with the Canossian Sisters and to serve that God who had shown her so many proofs of His love. The young African, who by then had come of age, enjoyed the freedom of choice which the Italian law ensured. Bakhita remained in the catechumenate where she ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2015/02/st-josephine-bakhita.html

For 2015, Three "Generous Promises" THE WILD REED - January 19, 2015 ... or so. Actually, my friend Kathleen said it's quite okay to wait a bit longer before taking down my tree. She reminded me that in some older Catholic Christian traditions, Christmas lasted until February 2. This date marks the end of the 40 day-long " Christmastide ," which corresponds to the 40 days of Lent. As I'm sure many of you reading this would know, on February 2 the Church celebrates the day that Mary entered the temple when her days of "purification" (as defined by ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2015/01/for-2015-three-generous-promises.html

Quietness HUMBLEPIETY - January 14, 2015 ... busy activities to overwhelm the stillness. When you are walking with the Lord, following his voice, it is worthwhile to talk and also listen to him! I try not to say "Lord, I am busy doing this and that" or "I will be back at your side when I can spare the time!" Christ "is" the call to priesthood, being close to him, is a happy partnership of sharing in his work and sitting at his feet listening to his voice!

My Story ... "A WINK AND A SMILE" - January 14, 2015 Does anyone ever use this "Write a Note" thing on Facebook? I'm not entirely sure what the purpose was for it. Maybe to share words or stories (sort of like blogging) that cannot be said in a short status update. Anyway, this may be as good a place as any to tell you something about ME ... share MY STORY. My name is Elaine (you know that because Facebook tells you and you're my friend).

An Episcopal Ordination: Joy With a Tinge of Sadness MY JOURNEY - January 11, 2015 ... the chance to take the photos of Fr Richard (now Bishop of Miri). Partly because I did not find him very interesting - he seldom smiled. At least not when he met me. But when he did (well, he would usually give me that sly smile when he was cycling around the Cathedral compound in the evening), I did not have the camera with me. When I received the news of his appointment as the new Bishop of Miri, my heart sank - to be honest. Well, I was more concerned of the one to take over his post as the ...http://audrey-shark.blogspot.com/2014/02/an-episcopal-ordination-joy-with-tinge.html
