The tone shifts in the Gospels of the next three Sundays of Lent to reflecting on the meaning of baptism and how well we are imitating Christ: Jesus and the woman at the well; Jesus curing the blind man; Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.

These questions remind the already baptized to experience again a new catechumenate and preparation to join with Christ in his redemptive mission.

Tippecanoe and Jesus Too!! A FRIAR'S LIFE - February 6, 2016 ... too!" Very inspiring stuff! They've gotten a bit better since then. Here are a sampling of just a few this year's slogans. Some are very basic and descriptive like, "Hillary for America" or perhaps the shortest slogan ever, "Jeb!" Some are a little bit scary like Rand Paul's, "Defeat the Washington Machine" or Bernie Sander's "A revolution is coming!" Some I personally ind funny, like Chris Christies, "Telling it like it is!" But, then there are the ones that hope to be inspirational and ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2016/02/tippecanoe-and-jesus-too.html

Every Sunday I try to post a reflection on the Sunday readings. Sometimes one or both is just too much with everything else I have going on in my life. Instead of a Friday traditio , this week I posted a Saturday morning one. Instead of a reflection on three very long readings, especially on a Sunday on which I had no liturgical or teaching duties, I am posting a reflection on something else. Besides, my Friday ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/01/living-creative-tension-twelve-years.html

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2016: Day Seven, "Hospitality for Prayer" CALLED TO COMMUNION - January 23, 2016 ... Catholics and Reformed Christians in dialogue with one another. As the background for this year's set of prayers and readings indicate, ecumenical dialogue in Latvia was a large inspiration for our prayers for Christian unity in 2016. In today's reflection, the town of Madona (shown above in a photo from 1918) is particularly relevant to this theme of hospitality for prayer. Madona is a place where there is a good amount of Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant Christians living ...http://www.calledtocommunion.com/2016/01/week-of-prayer-for-christian-unity-2016-day-seven-hospitality-for-prayer/

"openness" on the part of some Vatican officials (including the Pope) and official Catholic structures towards Lutheranism. First there was the support expressed by a Vatican spokesman for the renaming of a square in the central part of Rome after Martin Luther , support that was never disowned by any higher ecclesiastical authority in Rome.

A Day in the Life... BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - January 8, 2016 Here's my day (so far)... First stop, after the bathroom, was the church sacristy. I turned on the lights and put on my vestments for Holy Mass. As I am in the habit of preparing my chalice the day before, I only needed to double-check it. Then I sat down to pray the Divine Office. As the faithful are usually praying the Rosary about this time, I pray in the sacristy, contemplating the crucifix and the relics that are kept there. The seminarians, home for Christmas break, ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/01/a-day-in-life.html

Fourth Sunday in Advent: Why Should the Lord Come to Me? VOX NOVA - December 21, 2015 My last homily for Advent and it is a day late. This week I had a hard time making myself sit down and read the readings, let alone reflect on them. And I have only been doing this for two months. My respect for pastors who have done this for years, and give thoughtful sermons every week, grows each time I do this. Trying to make the Letter to the Hebrews fit with the other readings finally led me to the Eucharist and this week's homily As always, I hope ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/12/21/fourth-sunday-in-advent-why-should-the-lord-come-to-me/

Year C Fourth Sunday of Advent Καθολικός διάκονος - December 20, 2015 Readings: Micah 5:1-4a; Ps 80:2-3.15-16.18-19; Heb 10:5-10; Luke 1:39-45 The prophecy contained in our first reading from the book of the prophet Micah is startling for its specificity. Micah not only foretold God installing a leader over Israel from the tribe of Judah, but he accurately prophesied where that leader would be born: in the historical territory of the tribe of Judah, in "the city of David that is called Bethlehem" ( Luke 2:4 ).

Stand, Sit, Kneel, Repeat… Why Catholics Do the Things They Do SEASONS OF GRACE - December 16, 2015 If you're a non-Catholic attending the Catholic Mass for the first time, chances are you notice this: On cue, people stand up; they sit back down; they kneel; then they stand…. The curious onlooker might wonder what is the Secret Code that Catholics flash to one another, to achieve such uniformity in such complex circumstances. My Irish aunt used to joke about it, her irreverent but good-natured banter extracting humor from our Sunday ritual. "They learned precision ...http://kathyschiffer.com/why-do-catholics-do-that/stand-sit-kneel-repeat-why-catholics-do-the-things-they-do/

An Advent Examination of Conscience NARU HODO - December 13, 2015 ... gift of a St. John in my life. This line especially: "We should take our lesson from St. John the Baptist. He is thought to be the Christ; he declares he is not what they think. He does not take advantage of their mistake to further his own glory." I could never really put into words how that made me weep, but consider how not only easy but common it is for one person to take advantage of another, but what an act of love and honor of God it is to choose to humble oneself rather than hurt ...http://lift-up-your-hearts.blogspot.com/2015/12/an-advent-examination-of-conscience.html

Beat Your Own Breast NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - December 7, 2015 ... readings that call us to vigilance, I would like to have a look at one of the "lost gestures" of the Roman Rite which, thanks be to God, is now making a comeback. Why do we beat our breasts? Many years ago, Fr. Cassian Folsom, O.S.B., prior of the Monastery of Norcia, wrote a lovely article entitled "Sacred Signs and Active Participation at Mass: What Do These Actions Mean, and Why Are They So Important?" Apropos our topic, Fr. Cassian says: This is a sign of repentance, of ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/1QM_2Ifxu8o/beat-your-own-breast.html
