BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - August 25, 2014 ... agree is exactly what happened, and explains to a great degree all that is so weird and otherwise incomprehensible that happened in the life of the Church since the Second Vatican Council. Why were churches wrecked? Artwork and beauty destroyed? Why don't newer churches look like churches? (Actually, they are starting to, again; but this question refers to many churches built between around 1970-2000.) And so on. You know the questions; they may be your questions.

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. Our Discussion Questions will ...http://catholiclivingtoday.blogspot.com/2011/07/give-them-some-food-yourselves.html

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/

The forthcoming LC Hymnal can function as a companion to either.

PILGRIMAGE DAY 4: To Those W Faith No Explanation Is Necessary... FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - July 22, 2014 MONDAY, July 21 So many of you remember that it was only two years ago that I made my first visit to Italy (truth be told it was my fist time ever out of the country. Today, on our way up to Assisi from Rome we stopped at a beautiful town named Orvietto - famous for the Eucharistic miracle which was the impetus for the feast of Corpus Christi to be institutionalized 750 years ago. (I explain a little more of it in the homily down below) The city is truly a beautiful town - ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2014/07/mon-july-21-eucharist.html

God Is Kindness and Mercy Καθολικός διάκονος - July 20, 2014 Readings: Wis 12:12.16-19; Ps 86:5-6.9-10.15-16; Rom 8:26-27; Matt 13:24-43 Most of the attention in the ambo (i.e., pulpit) this weekend will no doubt be given to the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares. With the Gospel reading being rather long, the other readings and even the remaining two parables contained in the Gospel are likely either to receive short shrift, or be completely ignored. This is not a complaint. As a preacher, I grasp that you can't ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/07/god-is-kindness-and-mercy.html

A Peaceful Oasis LEX ORANDI, LEX CREDENDI - July 20, 2014 ... again, more tears of joy flowed. I prayed with all my heart, asking the Lord to please stay with me and help me through my trials. After Mass, I paid a visit to the outdoor shrine. It was silent and peaceful. People brought their concerns, struggles and troubles to St. Jude. I joined them, lighting my candle and asking the holy Apostle for his assistance. Before dropping my friend off at the airport, I thanked him for coming and for giving me the opportunity to experience such profound peace. ...http://benedictgal-lexorandilexcredendi.blogspot.com/2014/07/a-peaceful-oasis.html

Reading II: Romans 8:18-23 Psalm Response: 65:10,11, 12-13,14 Gospel: Matthew 13:1-23 If there was ever an agricultural theme for a set of readings, this week's readings certainly fits the bill. A fitting time to look to the fields, look to the harvest, notice the crops as the summer ripens and autumn draws nearer. Isaiah writes of the Lord's word, just as precipitation falling from heaven waters the earth and produces food, his word goes forth from his mouth ...http://journeytowisdom-ocbs.blogspot.com/2014/07/fifteenth-sunday-in-ordinary-time-july.html
