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

Hot and Spicy Lunch Post GIVE TONGUE - June 13, 2017 ... The model quietly disrobed behind a screen, came out and did some quick poses on an elevated platform, before adopting some classical poses for longer sketches. It was not provocative. I particularly remember one old plump woman sitting on a stool, her shoulders slumped forward as if she were tired from a long day and her white-grey hair in a messy-stringy-bun. She had rolls of fat on her stomach, her skin in other parts was flabby and wrinkled, yet there was about her a refined dignity and ...http://givetongue.blogspot.com/2017/06/hot-and-spicy-lunch-post.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

On Trotting Out the "Jesus Hung Out With Sinners" Defense BYZANTINE, TEXAS - May 27, 2017 ... appointment with him. You go to him to be treated. 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

A Mother's Morning Basket WILDFLOWERS AND MARBLES - May 26, 2017 ... meet – the children and I – every morning. I still read books and poetry, and we still enjoy beautiful art and music. 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! A Mother's Morning Basket I have a small corner of my bedroom that I've claimed, and I ...http://wildflowersandmarbles.com/2017/05/26/a-mothers-morning-basket/

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

A Vestment Maker's Birthday Present for Pope Benedict XVI NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - April 27, 2017 ... business - Di Clara. 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

Despite the rehearsals, I had no intention of singing the cantana ... TERESA'S TWO CENTS - April 10, 2017 ... recently that I'm singing here, with them. He said, "Well, now your secret is out and it's all over town." I can't be sure he was joking! He thanked me for singing with them. And his wife also thanked me. So, yes, I suppose word is out. In the ninety minutes before the service started, we went through the entire work of music. I had practiced on my own with an instrumental CD of the alto part. My goal was to memorize at least the words but I could not. Except for those ...http://teresatwocents.blogspot.com/2017/04/despite-rehearsals-i-had-no-intention.html

#beloved MARY LENABURG - April 4, 2017 ... some challenges to my family and when you are giving all you have to love those closest to you, the words you want to share with the world are harder to come up with it. How are y'all doing? How is your Lent going? Two weeks you guys. Easter is in two weeks!! That's just insane isn't it? I was doing pretty well with my Lenten plan until last week and the bottom seemed to fall out. We received some rather distressing news that required a few days to process. Not to worry, ...http://www.marylenaburg.com/2017/04/beloved.html/

"The Turn": A Lenten Meditation by Lionel Basney THE WILD REED - April 3, 2017 ... turning around, turning away from our sins and back to God. It's a decisive image: you change direction; you face the other way. What do we repent of? In the Bible it is often idolatry – putting the wrong thing at the center of our lives. Or it is an outright wrong, done on impulse or by design. It is the favorite anger, the nurtured grudge, the stab of envy, the pet dream of greed or lust or power. It is our preoccupation with ourselves. We recut the world as we want it to be. And ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2017/04/the-turn-lenten-meditation-by-lionel.html

So there's a sense of disbelief, perhaps anger on the part of the no-nonsense, straight talking- make-my-sister-help-me-out-Lord, Martha- LORD IF YOU HAD BEEN HERE, MY BROTHER WOULD NOT HAVE DIED. Mary on the other hand, was too distraught initially to even go out to meet Jesus like her sister did. She's overcome with grief. The Gospel tries to capture the emotional moment where the one she loved, trusted and had faith in, arrives at the ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2017/04/lord-if-you-had-been-here-where-were.html

Out and About – Winter 2016-2017 THE WILD REED - March 31, 2017 ... you've ever wondered what fast food looked like before McDonald's ran roughshod over the American landscape, the hash-slinging Hi-Lo is a good place to start. And for those questioning the diner's historic bona fides, just slip into one of the booth's tight-ish quarters. Yes, American waistlines were smaller in the pre-Big Mac era. On December 18, 2016 my good friend and housemate Tim and I hosted our annual Winter Solstice/Christmas gathering.

Forced Penance BACK BAY VIEW - March 30, 2017 ... which means he can't compete in after-school sports - in other words, the track team, of which I am one of the coaches. I know he got a referral one day for playing a video game in class (I'm ready to join a crusade against computers in the classroom - a topic for another day), but to be on Choices list requires three referrals, or two U's in citizenship (he did get one from the same teacher who gave him the referral), or a suspension. He can't remember anything else he did. ...http://backbayview.blogspot.com/2017/03/forced-penance.html

Culture, Faith and the Craven Souls of the "Nones" CRISIS MAGAZINE - March 23, 2017 ... culture, Epstein favors Mathew Arnold: There are born a certain number of natures with a curiosity about their best self, with a bent for seeing things as they are, for disentangling themselves from machinery … for the pursuit, in a word, of perfection … and this bent always tends … to take them out of their class, and to make their distinguishing characteristic not their [social origins, wealth, or status], but their humanity.

Winter . . . Within and Beyond THE WILD REED - March 17, 2017 ... season's call to hunker down, rest, be reflective , Said another way, I'd much rather honor and say yes to winter's invitation to become that bit more attuned with the natural world around me; a world to which, because of all our technological advances and and expectations, we can easily forget we are connected. I believe that when we establish a resonance with the seasons and connect with the natural world, we honor Sacred Mystery immanent in all things. I share all of this as a way of ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2017/03/winter-within-and-beyond.html

Above and More Than Earth THE CLOISTERED HEART - March 15, 2017 ... however, I am called by God to rise above the persistent pull of sin. I'm to fix my eyes on Jesus, and to consistently choose His way above all that is contrary to His will. Perhaps this is why the idea of a cloistered heart so draws me. I cannot live behind the walls of a monastery, for that is not my vocation. But living fully for God in the midst of the world? That IS my vocation. 'You put it so perfectly,' I wrote to a friend some years ago, 'when you wrote of returning ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2017/03/above-and-more-than-earth.html
