Lent 2015 AGGIE CATHOLIC BLOG - February 16, 2015 ... Easter. Lent originally developed as a forty-day retreat, preparing converts to be baptized at the Easter Vigil. It is now a part of our Church's liturgical calendar and a season of conversion for all. Conversion is the process of turning away from sin and turning to God. Are Sundays a part of Lent? Sundays are always a day of celebration of Christ's passion and Resurrection, so we celebrate on these days. While still part of the season of Lent, they have a mixture of both celebration (because ...http://www.aggiecatholicblog.org/2015/02/lent-2015/
Pope Calling for Joint Commemoration With Lutherans in 2017 A CATHOLIC LIFE - December 31, 2014 ... October 21, 2013) The problem is that their progress toward unity is in vain, if unity with Christ is what they are expecting. The Lutherans' journey to ecclesial union will consist in rejecting the errors of their wayward sect and confessing the Roman Catholic Church to be the only true religion on earth. They must reject the perfidy of Martin Luther who initiated his hateful Reformation in 1517, remembering the decree of the Council of Trent that Luther and the Reformation are not something ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/2zl5Ri62zOs/pope-calling-for-joint-commemoration.html
Navarre Bible Commentary:Seventh Day in the Octave of Christmas JOE CATHOLIC - December 31, 2014 ... he drew on to contemplate God's divinity and express it as "the Word of God". By placing this poem as a prologue to his Gospel, the apostle is giving us a key to understand all that follows, in the same sort of way as the first chapters of the Gospels of St Matthew and St Luke initiate us into the contemplation of the life of Christ by telling us about the virgin birth and other episodes to do with his infancy; in structure and content, however, this passage is akin to the ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/12/navarre-bible-commentary-seventh-day-in.html

Reason #2 to Reject the Reformation: Scriptural Interpretation SHAMELESS POPERY - December 2, 2014 Yesterday, I began a multi-part series looking at St. Edmund Campion's Ten Reasons against the Reformation. The first reason, addressed yesterday, was the canon of Scripture: the Reformers took books out of the Bible (and not even the same books as one another), and end up leaving no coherent authority upon which to have a Biblical canon. Today, Campion looks at the other half of the coin: Scriptural interpretation. I'll repeat the warning that I ...http://catholicdefense.blogspot.com/2014/12/reason-2-to-reject-reformation.html
Feminism, Conscience, and the Church: How Reformed Baptist Natalie Richardson Became Catholic CALLED TO COMMUNION - November 13, 2014 ... paradigm where everyone who has the Holy Spirit is capable of reaching truth on their own, why was it that I was the only one who had found the truth of the Sabbath commandment? My isolation became even more obvious when I spent a semester abroad in Asia. Yes, there were Christians there, but still no one like me. My doubts and questions blossomed. I began to read about how the Bible was formed, how early theologians interpreted it in regards to justification ...http://www.calledtocommunion.com/2014/11/feminism-conscience-and-the-church-how-reformed-baptist-natalie-richardson-became-catholic/
Dialogue With an Anglican on "Praying to Mary," Patron Saints, Etc. (vs. Lydia McGrew) BIBLICAL EVIDENCE FOR CATHOLICISM - November 9, 2014 ... which I love (almost above anything else). but it seems to me that, to assume that the dead can hear our intercessions, that they know our present state on earth, and that they are speaking of it to God is to attribute to the dead something uncomfortably close to omniscience and to give to them something uncomfortably close to prayer. Now we get to the heart of the issue. There are a few plain logical fallacies in the above claim that I shall address. But first things ...http://socrates58.blogspot.com/2014/11/dialogue-with-anglican-on-praying-to.html
