Mass Etiquette: 20 Things to Do and Not Do in Mass AGGIE CATHOLICS - September 15, 2014 Mass Etiquette: 20 Things To Do And Not Do In Mass Fast before Mass. It is Church law that one fasts for at least 1 hour before receiving Holy Communion. Water and medicine can be consumed, of course. The purpose is to help us prepare to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. No Food and Drink in Church. The exceptions would be a drink for small children, water for the priest or choir (if discreet) and water for those who are ill. Bringing a snack into church is not ...http://marysaggies.blogspot.com/2012/03/20-tips-for-proper-etiquette-in-mass.html

23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time - Reflecting on Love While at Mass With Spirited Children, and Fall Crafts... LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - September 8, 2014 ... neighbor. At our parish, the music ensemble was back from summer hiatus, the bulletin was filled with information on the parish groups and events starting back up, and fall was definitely in the air. Anne was *very* climby - on the pew, down the pew, down on the kneeler, under the pew, swinging from the end of the pew (!). I restrained and distracted her as best as I could. There were a lot of other children there, which helped, since she spent a lot of time clandestinely ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/09/23rd-sunday-in-ordinary-time-reflecting.html

A band of friends. An estate of neighbors. A school of students and teachers. A group of working colleagues. A parish of believers. A nation of citizens. Each of us inhabits several of these spaces everyday. In these spaces, we are not just individuals, distinct and separate from each other. Rather, we are individuals always ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2014/09/homily-spark-of-god.html

Love, Truth, and Correcting Each Other Καθολικός διάκονος - September 6, 2014 Our readings for this Twenty-third Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year A , prompt us to ask ourselves, "What do I owe and to whom to do I owe it?" In this day and age, at least in what we call advanced Western countries, most of us owe money. I know I do, more than I should, truth be told. As brothers and sisters in Christ, don't we owe each other the truth for love of God and one another? Even though this is one of those things that makes all of us a bit (maybe a lot) uneasy, it ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/09/love-truth-correcting-each-other.html

Concelebration in the Byzantine Rite NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - September 6, 2014 ... said by a reader, with a concelebrant singing the conclusions of the prayers out loud. In the modern Roman Rite, after the distribution of Holy Communion, "all is done in the usual manner by the principal celebrant, with the concelebrants remaining at their places". On leaving the altar, only the main celebrant kisses it; the concelebrants only bow. (GIRM parag. 250-251) 10. Lastly we may note two proper characteristics of the Byzantine Rite which are of the greatest ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/WOyqW8px2sk/concelebration-in-byzantine-rite.html

ASK FATHER: EMHCs When Instituted Acolytes Are Present FR. Z'S BLOG - August 30, 2014 ... formation for Holy Orders. Based on my reading of the GIRM, an instituted acolyte is an extraordinary minister of holy communion and would be expected to serve in that role should they be called up to assist during Mass. Am I right? If I read the GIRM correctly, then an instituted acolyte would be the first EMHC, and people from the pews would fill in as needed. However, a lay liturgy director seems to be saying "spread the fun around" by telling us ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/WB0ZtYJDPWY/

During the very abbreviated Eucharistic prayer, he threw in some "ad lib" lines and just seemed to throw the consecrated hosts around. He even dropped one on the floor (which he picked up and threw in his mouth). I had so much anger in my heart and didn't feel as if he had adequately presented the Precious Body of Christ that I did not take communion. I intend to go to confession at our local parish this week. I think my anger for him is sinful but I ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/w5DaQodkoIA/

Why were churches wrecked? Artwork and beauty destroyed? Why don't newer churches look like churches?

Father, How Does One 'Actively Participate' During Mass and Keep Their Mind Focused on the Readings and Gospel and Praye CRUSADER MAXIMUS - August 10, 2014 ... probably write some reflections about Catholics, especially young Catholics, and their attitudes. First, think of the things you don't like at Mass. Is it too hot in the building, like the air conditioning is either not working or someone is trying to save on electricity bills? Is it too cold and not well heated. Are there babies, and children making noise? Are there parents who do not make an effort to control their babies and children. True, you can't "control" babies, but ...http://crusadermaximus.tumblr.com/post/94351522744

Fundamental Option Theory: The Default Theology THE CURT JESTER - August 6, 2014 ... four serious sins", "Well then, how about three grave sins?" It becomes quite easy to transmute the Call to Holiness to the call to be good enough . To dismiss Jesus' call for us to be holy as the Father is holy as just hyperbole. To hear the Parable of the Tares and think "Well tough luck on those tares, being of the wheat myself." To separate out the intention to be good from my actual actions. So easy to resign yourself to the purgative way without doing much purging, much less advancing in ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/splendoroftruth/lNZE/~3/NL8Wq6zSAvc/

TMI? Maybe. CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - August 3, 2014 Readings for Sunday, August 3, 2014 The readings this Sunday really speak to my weary little soul. This is the time of year when, as a mom/teacher, I am caught up in the back to school whirlwind. There are so many preparations to make – both at school and on the home front, and lots of checks to write! All of our married lives, my husband and I have lived paycheck to paycheck. We have never had much savings and have sometimes had none. We often ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/tmi-maybe/

The bride works at a Christian Community Development Corporation. The reason I share about them is that in our last discussion they said that, even though they do not have much, they want their wedding and their marriage to be an expression of God's love in our world. "All we have is our love and our faith," they are saying. "Bring them here to me," our Lord responds. Christ will bless what they have to offer and my hunch is that ...http://thealternatepath.blogspot.com/2014/08/thoughts-on-sunday-readings-but-all-we.html

"Give Them Some Food Yourselves." CATHOLIC LIVING TODAY - July 31, 2014 The miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fish that is mentioned in this Sunday's Readings (18A) for August 3, 2014 is so central to the gospel message that it is one of the few miracles found in all four gospels. It help us recognize the gifts we have been given and the responsibility we have to give them to others. And it offers important food for thought as we debate the immigration dilemma we currently face at our porous borders.

Reflection on Today's Readings CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - July 27, 2014 Readings for Sunday, July 27, 2014 When reading the first reading, I was struck by Solomon's unselfishness – his genuine concern for the people in his charge. I thought of a mother's prayers. Most moms are really selfless and spend a good part of their prayer time imploring God's graces and help for their children. On the other hand, sometimes, we treat God like a fairy God father. Gimme this, I wish that… There is a really simple, sweet prayer ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/07/27/reflection-on-todays-readings/
