Reflection: Looking at the Lion King Through the Eyes of Francis of Assisi FRANCISCAN LIFE - August 24, 2016 ... reunited with Nala, his childhood playmate. Forced by the stark devastation of the Pride Lands, Nala went to seek help. However, her attempt to convince Simba that he is that help, that he should return as rightful King of the Pride Lands, is met with fierce resistance. Additional encouragement by Rafiki, the ancient baboon-cum-medicine woman/man of the Pride Lands, appears equally futile. Simba is, however, forced to face the cause of his reluctance. In dream-like sequences, he relives one of ...http://franciscanlife.blogspot.com/2016/08/reflection-looking-at-lion-king-through.html

Something for Everyone? THE SPIRIT'S SWORD - August 5, 2016 ... of the words, or we don't. It's one or the other, and not one when you want it and the other when you don't. He is rejecting the old meaning of 'brothers' for it is not inclusive enough, so he replaces it with the bland 'neighbours'. Brothers meant we were, all of us, family. Neighbours, on the other hand, means the people we happen to live next door to. You may argue that Christ spoke of neighbours (even as you ignore the fact that he also spoke of brothers), but that is the old sense of the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheSpiritsSword/~3/CF7bi7uUDzY/something-for-everyone.html
18th Sunday in Ordinary Time PRINTED AS PREACHED - July 30, 2016 Someone in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, tell my brother to share the inheritance with me." Whoever he was, he was afraid. His attention was focused, not on the Lord, but on someone else, something else. In fact, by attempting to bring God into this dispute concerning an inheritance, he reveals how fear is often a distraction to faith and how charity and love can be poisoned by greed and selfishness. In this incident we read in the Gospel, what could the ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2016/07/18th-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

SEASONS OF GRACE - May 24, 2016 " Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are his sisters here with us?" –Mark 6:3 DID JESUS HAVE BROTHERS AND SISTERS? The Gospel of Mark would seem to say so. And not only in the Gospel of Mark. In Luke 8:19-21, the topic comes up again. Jesus is told by a crowd gathered to hear him speak. The crowd says, " Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, wanting to see you." But Jesus, rather than ...http://seasonsofgrace.net/did-jesus-really-have-brothers-and-sisters/
The Rosary in Maronite Spirituality A CATHOLIC MOM IN HAWAII - May 17, 2016 by Brother John M. Samaha, S.M. Origin of the Rosary The Rosary, the blessed beads that quietly slip between our fingers as we pray over the mysteries of Jesus' redemptive life, has an ancient origin. Most likely it originated in the ancient East and not in the medieval West, perhaps in India. It was and still is a popular prayer device among the Muslims, who use the Arabic term masbahat , which means to give praise. Devout Muslims used the masbahat in repeating the ...http://hicatholicmom.blogspot.com/2016/05/the-rosary-in-maronite-spirituality.html
