St. Louis IX and Disappointing Children COFFEE AND CANTICLES - August 25, 2016 ... samples: My dearest son, my first instruction is that you should love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your strength. Without this there is no salvation... You should permit yourself to be tormented by every kind of martyrdom before you would allow yourself to commit a mortal sin. If the Lord has permitted you to have some trial, bear it willingly and with gratitude, considering that it has happened for your good and that perhaps you well deserved it. If the Lord bestows upon you ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/x3BpJAru1-E/st-louis-ix-and-disappointing-children.html

God, France, and Marguerite FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - August 25, 2016 ... pious, although not as devout as Louis. Inside his wedding ring, he had three words inscribed: "God, France, and Marguerite." They had eleven children. King Louis had a secret staircase built from his study to his wife's parlor above so that he could visit her during the day without his mother knowing it. Louis' mother, Queen Blanche, thought that Louis should concentrate solely upon his work. She also may have feared that Marguerite might gain too much political influence ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2009/08/god-france-and-marguerite.html

Not Peace, but Division: A Remarkable Homily HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - August 22, 2016 I've just returned from my annual visit to Mount Angel Abbey in Oregon. There are many attractions to this beautiful place, including the Abbey itself, the Alvar Aälto -designed library , and the beautiful surroundings of the Willamette Valley .

Why God Invites Us to Make a Sacrifice of Praise. REFLECTIONS AND RUMINATIONS - August 14, 2016 ... While it is good to know that we should be giving thanks to God for all that we have but do not deserve in life, in themselves, these do not constitute a 'sacrifice' per se. There is not much of a 'dying' that happens to cause this gratitude to emote from our hearts. For a sacrifice to be sacrificial, something has to be offered up, put aside, entailing some kind of death. How is this applicable to us? I have said it in many past reflections in this blog that ultimately, our lives are not ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2016/08/why-god-invites-us-to-make-sacrifice-of.html

The good news is that he continues following his dream of being a pilot . . . in far-off Coral Bay , Western Australia. When I was visiting my younger brother and his family in Morpeth , just prior to my time in Melbourne, I was reintroduced to the artwork of Ainslie Roberts .

At his canonization, Saint John XXIII said this of Saint Peter Julian: It is also very fitting that the sacred ceremony occurs during the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council which has as its special purpose to see to it that the pearls of holiness belonging to the crown which encircles the head of the Church should sparkle and shine ever more and more. This extensive gathering of her holy shepherds united with the infallible successor of St Peter not only ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2016/08/saint-peter-julian-eymard-2/

Maybe everyone would have had to get themselves a drink, but they were adults. They could handle it. It may well be, though, that Martha didn't want to serve Jesus the Bethany version of a deli lunch. Maybe she wanted the pleasure of serving a nice meal to her dear friend. If so, Jesus might have been saying, then do it and stop complaining. This moment might resonate ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/UXQPvuBHysQ/jesus-loved-martha

How to Change How You Look & Feel About Yourself FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - July 24, 2016 ... nowhere I see this post that had one line that was hard to ignore: Our underwear will change the way you look and feel about yourself That's a pretty bold claim. Curiosity no doubt gets a lot of people to click it. Heck, it can even disturb a priest enough to wonder – Can underwear really do that? It might be made of a different material, manufactured in a unique way that can be new to you. But I wonder after wearing them once or twice, (and hopefully laundering them in between those ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2016/07/how-to-change-how-you-look-feel-about.html

"God is good," we said together, but He was just beginning this night. My friend invited me in and we chatted a bit about this and that, and then she asked if I wanted to watch a movie with her, one that she had seen and enjoyed, but wanted to watch again. And I said yes. The movie was titled: Spotlight. Spotlight was/is the name of a small 4-person department within the Boston Globe newspaper.

Finding Strength in Our Surrender DA MIHI ANIMAS - June 21, 2016 ... and strength. Crisis can be a helpful catalyst to truly and unreservedly surrender to his will, and any means to achieve that end is worthwhile. But we should not wait until our backs are against the wall to pray the words, "I am no longer in charge Jesus, please lead me." To give ourselves daily to Jesus Christ, it is important to put our absolute trust in him. What have we got to lose? When I think about my own faith, I remember what Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said: "If we ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2016/06/finding-strength-in-our-surrender.html

Her main objective is to do what she likes, and she's willing to sacrifice the happiness of her daughter if she herself can be well taken care of. She never admits defeat. Her moral and tactical flexibility is astounding. Lady Susan, a recent widow, comes to stay with her brother-in-law and his family, having summarily left her last visiting situation after attracting all the men and alienating all the ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2016/05/love-and-friendship.html

Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 5/28 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - May 27, 2016 Image source 45 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/2016/05/pause-for-prayer-saturday-528.html

Summer and Modesty THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - May 26, 2016 ... big clothes. I don't care for clothes. I like to see people who are nicely attired, like I like to see yummy desserts and beautiful sunsets. But I'm not paying for any of them. I hardly notice what women wear. I did, however, notice what one woman was wearing today. I was in Ottawa and, in a business area, I noticed a woman wearing something like this: That's not exactly right, but close enough to make my point. What is my point? This dress summarizes my views on beauty and ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2016/05/summer-and-modesty.html

Solemnity of Pentecost, Cycle C LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - May 15, 2016 ... these gifts are bestowed upon us, in a very special way, on this feast of Pentecost, descending as not just one but a multiplicity of gifts, all unique in what they are but all stemming from the same source, that same divine wellspring, the very fountain of grace which can only be found in the Holy Spirit. Yet, in spite of this, sadly, the Holy Spirit is, in the words of a good priest friend of mine, the most underappreciated and overworked Person of the ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2016/05/solemnity-of-pentecost-cycle-c.html

A Reflection & Prayer for Wisdom TOTUS TUUS FAMILY & CATHOLIC HOMESCHOOL - May 13, 2016 ... indeed beautiful to me. I'm committed to it. Beautiful things usually take effort and homeschooling, like other hard work , can bring worthwhile results. Our beauty and our commitments (homeschooling) can be a "bitter experience" to others. In our world today, across many areas and topics, there are examples of one-way tolerance. "I can like what I like but if you like what YOU like...then you're hating on me." Tiresome. We fall into traps, imitating the wail ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/ePBq/~3/ntoOyao-XaM/a-reflection-prayer-for-wisdom.html
