The Kasper Proposal Still Very Much Alive MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - December 14, 2014 ... was skeptical about that . Very much so . And it appears my skepticism was warranted. Like the villain in a bad horror movie, the damned thing keeps rising from assured death to menace the protagonists again . Behold Question 38, straight from the Pope's handpicked secretary at the Vatican: 38. With regard to the divorced and remarried, pastoral practice concerning the sacraments needs to be further studied, including assessment of the Orthodox practice and taking into account "the distinction ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-kasper-proposal-still-very-much.html

Humility—Third Sunday of Advent—Cycle C IS MY PHYLACTERY SHOWING? - December 14, 2014 ... brokenhearted. The word for anointed in Isaiah is Mashiah , from which we get the word, Messiah. Isaiah is not speaking, intentionally, of the Messiah, but he prefigures the coming Messiah, as many others in salvation history prefigured Christ. In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus reads this same passage in His home synagogue to announce the beginning of His mission. Luke actually quotes the Greek version of this text, which uses the Greek word for anointed, e' kristen', which is where we get the word ...http://theocoid.blogspot.com/2014/12/humilitythird-sunday-of-adventcycle-c.html

"'What Doors Can We Allow Them to Open?' Answer - The Door to the Confessional." SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - December 10, 2014 ... the push to abandon the teaching of Our Lord Himself regarding the indissolubility of marriage and the biblical condemnation of sacrilegious communion is still very much on in advance of the Ordinary Synod against on the Family. As John Allen reports : Apparently, the old saying "once bitten, twice shy" doesn't apply to a synod of bishops. On Tuesday, the Vatican released the lineamenta , or preparatory document, for the next synod called by Pope Francis for October 2015, also ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2014/12/what-doors-can-we-allow-them-to-open.html

"Advent" MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - December 7, 2014 ... repeated and urgent appeals to the Messias [Messiah]: "Come, delay no longer." The Lessons from St. Paul urge us to dispose ourselves fittingly for His coming. The Gospels describe the terrors of the Last Judgment, foretell the second coming, and tell of the preaching of St. John the Baptist "to prepare the way of the Lord." In Advent, the Greek Church celebrates particularly the ancestors of our Lord -- all the Patriarchs and Prophets of the Old Testament, but especially Abraham, Isaac, and ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent.html

Advent: A Season of Preparation THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - November 30, 2014 ... come again. During Advent we meditate in a special way on these three statements. We prepare our hearts to remember Christ's first coming when we celebrate His birth on Christmas Day. We prepare our hearts to receive Christ right now when He comes to us in the Eucharist and in the thousands of other ways He comes to us every day. We prepare our hearts for Christ's coming at the end of our lives when we will meet Him face to face and for His coming in glory at the end of time ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2014/11/advent-season-of-preparation.html

First Sunday of Advent - Down to Earth GODZDOGZ - November 29, 2014 Readings: Isaiah 63:14-64:8, 1 Corinthians 1:3-9, Mark 13:33-37 . The readings today speak of patience, of holding fast in the certain hope of God's unveiling at an unexpected time… but why are we waiting? Is Jesus Christ not already the complete self-revelation of the Father in human history and the personal establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven… has not God already "torn the heavens open and come down", as the first reading ...http://godzdogz.op.org/2014/11/first-sunday-of-advent-down-to-earth.html

That's Where Jesus Is DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - November 26, 2014 Before the mass readings began, the priest called up the small children to the front of the altar; they were about to leave for a separate Children's Liturgy of the Word. Usually, Fr. Ed asks the children to "face Jesus in the tabernacle and genuflect," before leaving the church proper. But this Sunday was different. He looked at the young children gathered before him and asked: "Who knows what the tabernacle is?" A small voice answered: " That's where Jesus is ." Fr ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2014/11/thats-where-jesus-is.html

Piggy-Backing on God's Memory IVY ROSARY - November 22, 2014 ... first eight years or so of that time, we prayed them out loud, either chanting them (on the tone of "F") or reciting them together in community without chant. So the words of those psalms have become burned into my memory. Enter the ICEL psalter. The ICEL psalter (the acronym stands for "International Commission on English in the Liturgy") was first accepted by the U.S. bishops when it came out in the mid 1990s, and then, in one of the most foolish moves in ...http://ivyrosary.blogspot.com/2014/11/piggy-backing-on-gods-memory.html

Ordinary Time Is Coming to an End...do You All Have Your Advent Calendars Ready?! LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - November 17, 2014 ... "Current Novena Page." So, whatever novena I'm praying at that time, I'll label a page that will display there so that anyone who would like to join in can, or could ask me to pray for their intentions. If I'm not praying a novena at a given time, I'll have the Our Lady Undoer of Knots novena information listed there, since one could start that novena at any time, it's always a winner. :) I'm excited about this idea! We all benefit from praying more often, and from praying for each other. Yay. ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/11/ordinary-time-is-coming-to-enddo-you.html

Reflections on the Readings of the Day: Sunday, November 16, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - November 16, 2014 Readings for Sunday, November 16 The first reading reminds me of my role as wife to my wonderful husband. I have been so blessed with a man who always puts my well-being and happiness before his own. I try to do the same for him. Regretfully, I believe I fall short quite often. I am blessed to be married to my best friend. We have a love triangle! Yes!

He then came out of the sanctuary and put a small particle steeped in the blood of Christ into the mouth of each communicant with a spoon. Afterwards, each communicant is given a piece of the unconsecrated part of the bread, a memory of when the Eucharist was given during a wider meal. As babies are baptised, confirmed and receive communion at eight weeks old, baptised babies and small children also receive communion, as do people whose ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2014/11/november-13th-feast-of-st-john.html

Catholic Aerobics THE ONE TRUE FAITH - November 13, 2014 I asked Daniel how he liked his first Mass. He said he didn't know. "It was so strange." Daniel is in my RCIA class. He may not get baptized; he's religion shopping. The strangest thing, according to Daniel, was the different body positions. Up, down, kneel, genuflect, shake hands, get in line for communion, bow, bless oneself--so much; how do Catholics know what to do, when? Everyone in the small group agreed with him. That's the first ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2014/11/catholic-aerobics.html

Calling us to dare try a throw to win a prize. Calling us not to be part of the crowd but to come forward and try something new. Step right up. Yes, step right up now and try your hand at this question about today's feast: Is the ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2014/11/homily-step-right-up.html

Homily - "Why?" GW CATHOLIC Q & A - November 4, 2014 ... family? They are a devout, Catholic family, but they asked, "why?...why is God allowing this, Father?" I listened to them and cried with them. I later responded to them by saying that when I ask why, I look at a crucifix. Why did God allow His own son to die? If we look at why we call the day He died "Good Friday", we can again arrive at an answer. We call it "Good" because of the good that came out of it: our salvation and redemption, of course. But, and this is what we hear in the ...http://gwcatholicforum.blogspot.com/2014/11/homily-why.html

Mass in 1863 THE MUNIMENT ROOM - November 3, 2014 ... modern insistence on receiving hosts consecrated at the Mass one attends begins to look a bit odd.) In fact, the thing that makes the Mass so different is the calendar, and the ranking of feasts in the calendar; the fact that Sundays do not necessarily take precedence over other feasts; and the fact that each diocese has its own version of the Roman Calendar. Though what follows may seem complicated, it isn't: any - in fact every - literate Catholic was expected to be able to work out the ...http://ttonys-blog.blogspot.com/2014/11/mass-in-1863.html

Heaven Is a Place TEN THOUSAND PLACES - November 2, 2014 ... into psychiatric quests for wellness. Don't get me wrong—neither of these are bad things, and in fact both of these are necessary things in their own way and to their proper degree. But neither of them is the point of life, either. The point of life is to receive God's love and give God's love. Receive and give, receive and give in a personal communion of love and grace. This is the glory of the saints, the glory of heaven. The images we use for heaven, many of them ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/11/heaven-is-place.html
