Dominican Saints and Blesseds whose feast days are celebrated in November, describe St. Martin as "first a Lay Dominican, then infirmarian, barber, worker among the poor, remarkable wonder-worker, and Church appointed patron of social justice, cooperator brothers and hair dressers".

Beautiful Saints A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - November 1, 2016 Today is Solemnity of All Saints. The Mass was a joy for all its beautiful readings. In Reading 1 from Revelation 7, John saw that God would put his seal on the foreheads of his servants to protect them, and that those who had survived the time of great distress had washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb and made them white. In Reading 2 from 1 John 3, John tells us that the children of God shall be like God when they see him as he is. Gospel acclamation, Matthew ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2016/11/beautiful-saints.html

October 30 Homily Prep THE MATADOR WORD - October 28, 2016 ... a willingness to make that neediness public. And that, my friends, is a big problem. On the first hand, admitting to our neediness is downright un-American let alone unlikely from our egocentric way of being in the world. So Catholic parishioners-turned-inviters are not very likely to admit their need for anything, let alone friendship with Jesus. It sounds childish, it seems weak, it is too vulnerable for adults. We have maybe too much Anglo-Saxon "put on a stiff upper lip" ...http://thematadorword.blogspot.com/2016/10/october-30-homily-prep.html

October 24 - Weekday in Ordinary Time FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - October 24, 2016 + These readings today are enormous in the simplicity of their universal scope. Whatever is menial, puny, insignificant – this can expect to eventuate into the Kingdom of God. Why? Because it permits the greatness of God to make something out of littleness. (Look for example at what he did by sending his Son into the world as a tiny, little, relatively insignificant little baby boy, born in a stable with animals as his birthing-attendants). This is called the ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2016/10/october-24-weekday-in-ordinary-time.html

As St. Teresa taught: "For this is not a supernatural state, but depends upon our own action and by God's favor, we can enter it of our own accord" - Way of Perfection Sometimes it is difficult to read the writings of female mystics, because they sometimes read like extravagant love letters to the beloved - yet buried within is the secret to sanctity, the mystical theology of the saints.

Handle With Prayer A FRIAR'S LIFE - October 15, 2016 ... first two numbers, paused and stared blankly for a moment. Finally he took a deep breath and looked serenely up to heaven as his lips moved silently. He looked back at the lock, and confidently turned the final number, and opened the lock. The teacher was amazed and said, "Father, I'm in awe of the power of your prayer." she said. "It's really nothing," he answered. "The combination is written on the ceiling." I think if most of us were honest, we would admit to an uncertain ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2016/10/handle-with-prayer.html

Gratitude and Respect at Holy Mass (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - October 9, 2016 The readings are obviously about gratitude. They are also about worship. In the first reading, Naaman, who has leprosy, is so grateful for being healed that he is moved to worship the true God. And then, in the Gospel, the same thing happens. The one grateful leper who returns, falls at the feet of Jesus. He is worshipping him. Gratitude and worship go together. Our late auxiliary bishop, Carl Moeddel, used to say that if you don't want to come to Sunday ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/10/gratitude-and-respect-at-holy-mass.html

Whom Do You Trust?—25th Saturday of Ordinary Time (Cycle II) IS MY PHYLACTERY SHOWING? - September 24, 2016 We have an interesting, if not particularly uplifting, selection for our readings today. It's actually rather fitting to have these reminders of the final temporal end of human life given that we have just officially passed into autumn. If you've ever read Moby Dick , you might recall the narrator, Ishmael, reflecting on "the damp, drizzly November in my soul." And we've had just a little of that dampness and drizzle as autumn officially begins. Our ...http://theocoid.blogspot.com/2016/09/whom-do-you-trust25th-saturday-of.html

Censoring the Gospel SCELATA - September 12, 2016 ... must interject at this point, one of the finest homilies I ever heard was on the Pax dialogue, delivered by the great Msgr Andrew Wadsworth on Saint Irenaeus' memorial.) Yesterday for the first time, I noticed that the portion of the prescribed Gospel dealing with the Prodigal is bracketed! It may be left out! I was unfair in my opinion of a bright and attentive high school student, Catholic schools all the way, who told me she'd never heard that story except in Godspell. ...http://scelata.blogspot.com/2016/09/censoring-gospel.html
