5000 Pilgrims Walk From Chicago to Marian Shrine in Indiana FR. Z'S BLOG - August 10, 2014 ... our faces set towards the goal. There are hardships. I saw this at nwi.com : Polish Catholic pilgrims march across Northwest Indiana HAMMOND A river of mostly Polish Catholic pilgrims, including priests in ankle-length cassocks and baseball caps, flowed down Hohman Avenue Saturday afternoon. Pictures of Pope John Paul II bobbed above the surging, singing crowd. Whistles buzzed and pilgrims prayed as they walked en masse down the middle of the street. They ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/mo7sxzQiza0/
Those Who Say the Church Needs to Do More ... Need to Do More Themselves. ABBEY ROADS - July 11, 2014 The importance of the laity. Years ago, the NCR posted 'vocation ads' - I'm sure they still do - I don't receive Catholic newspapers and rarely read the online versions unless I run into a link to a subject I have an opinion on. I get the news I need and avoid the superfluous that way. But I digress. In the 'personal' or 'want ad' section, start up religious groups sometimes advertised seeking vocations. Among these ads were those maybe classified as, "Women suffering from ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2014/07/those-who-say-church-needs-to-do-more.html
Ordinary Time Is Anything but Ordinary in the Journey of Catholic Parenting... LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - July 1, 2014 ... from the priest and look toward the line for the chalice, I see a sight that I suppose I should have been more prepared for, knowing my daughter: Henry and Anne are casually headed back to our pew, right at the front of the church. For reasons that will never be understood by anybody over the age of 10, Anne has decided that she needs some more air flow and movement in the vicinity of her legs. She has hiked her dress up, oh, to the area just south of her armpits. :0 All I can ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/07/ordinary-time-is-anything-but-ordinary.html
Corpus Christi: Let Christ Enter Everywhere HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - June 22, 2014 ... "I was in prison and you visited me." That detour through the doors of the jail taught a truth about the Eucharist greater than even the most devout procession through the streets could teach. The Eucharist may be celebrated in church, but it is about life--life in all its dimensions and with all its problems. We do not adore Jesus from a distance, and he does not meet us from a faraway place. Like the father in the parable of the prodigal son, he embraces us in the Eucharist ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2014/06/corpus-christi-let-christ-enter.html
Seriously, Your Graces and Eminences and Holiness, Why'd Ya Change That? SCELATA - June 13, 2014 Throughout my entire adult Catholic life I've had those huh? moments, (that's what I call them in public, instead of invoking whiskey, and twenties-ish dances like the foxtrot and tango....) where something doesn't quite make sense, or something is missing, or something wonderful but "new" resonates with me instantly -- and I learn, "oh, it used to be this way, but they changed it to this way." It happens a lot with the calendar. Really? REALLY , Council Fathers? ya ...http://scelata.blogspot.com/2014/06/seriously-your-graces-and-eminences-and.html
Pentecost Sunday... LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - June 9, 2014 ... Mass, I remarked to Mike what a lovely Easter season it was. A lot of my Lent was very spiritually dry, but I had a hall-of-fame Holy Week, and the Easter season that followed has been very fruitful. May, in particular, resonated with me this year. Likely because I had a child receiving a sacrament this May, I really reveled in Catholic sacramental season, and noticed the other associated traditions. The May Crowning , ordinations to the priesthood and diaconate, rosary ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/06/pentecost-sunday.html
