Judas Left Early Too A FOLLOWER OF FRANCIS - March 11, 2017 At Mass today there was an awkward moment at Communion time. The Good Looking One and I were in line for Communion when the pastor suddenly stopped distributing Communion and stood staring at the side door. People were leaving before Mass was over.

At the time of the announcements just before the end of Mass he explained that he ...http://paxchristirochester.blogspot.com/2017/03/judas-left-early-too.html

Misery Is the Need for Mercy Καθολικός διάκονος - March 5, 2017 Readings: Gen 2:7-9.3:1-7; Ps 51:3-6.12-13.17; Rom 5:12.17-19: Matt 4:1-11 Lie/die; lying/dying.

We fell ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/03/misery-is-need-for-mercy.html

Feb 13 - Weekday in Ordinary Time FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - February 13, 2017 + We have very profound readings today at mass. We begin to read now of the events of "fallen mankind" after the sin of Adam and Eve. The offspring of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, in their attempt at giving to God what was his due: thanksgiving for what was among the first crops of the land, and raising of animals to serve man's needs, they ran into the first of the effects of the sin of their parents: envy, jealousy, pride – and ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2017/02/feb-13-weekday-in-ordinary-time.html

First, I was sleeping through the alarm until hubby nudged me awake. That's unusual. I awake easily. Then I fly out of bed, take a few steps and find myself on the floor. I fainted. I guess I got up from being asleep too ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2017/01/a-non-auspicious-start.html
