Thanks Knights DTF DEFEND/PROCLAIM THE FAITH - March 15, 2015 ... witness, to honor this great Catholic saint and in gratitude for the contributions of Irish Americans to the history of our country. We did so in the belief that the St. Patrick's Day Parade would be an occasion for unity and celebration in the city of Boston. We deeply regret that some have decided to use this occasion to further the narrow objectives of certain special interests, which has subjected this occasion to undeserved division and controversy. In addition, certain ...http://dtf-jayg.blogspot.com/2015/03/thanks-knights.html

Complaining About Priests AND SOMETIMES TEA - March 2, 2015 ... about "schlocky liturgies" she endured while on vacation, answered her critics here : Liturgy is an important element of Catholic life, and we need to think about what sorts of liturgical practice will make us better Catholics and people. It's really not just a matter of taste. Good liturgy elevates our minds, and indeed all of our senses, drawing us closer to God. It's often uncomfortable, because it forces us to grapple with the immensity of the mysteries that are found in ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2015/03/complaining-about-priests.html

A "Liturgy Snob" Answers Her Critics CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 25, 2015 ... the mysteries that are found in the Mass. But that's a healthy sort of discomfort. We ought to be challenged in that way, and it can actually be a good thing to feel a bit "alienated" at Mass, insofar as that alienation comes from the recognition that (as we read in Hebrews 11) we are "foreigners and strangers on earth," and that our true home is with God. Bad liturgy is often oriented towards making worship a more comfortable and communal sort of experience. It's easy to understand why this ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/OLXz_frOHkM/liturgy-snob-answers-critics

The media hailed the change of policy as a historic victory for the gay activists who have targeted the parade since 1991. The New York Times called the decision "a measure of changing attitudes in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church." But many in the Irish gay community felt the decision was merely a PR move designed to placate NBC, which airs the parade. Groups such as Irish Queers felt the new ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/0t4s4QFuTsg/cardinal-dolan-step-parade-grand-marshal

Liturgy Wars: The Church of Schlock Strikes Back AND SOMETIMES TEA - February 19, 2015 ... in judgment of perfectly valid Masses as "wonky aberrations" because their personal liturgical sensibilities are offended. The "mess of altar girls," the extraordinary minister in the purple dress, the "guitar bands," all of these--all of them!--are real people, doing something the Church permits and even sometimes encourages them to do . Most of them don't show up to try to impose their liturgical sensibilities on the Mass. Most of them--most of us--are ready to do what ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2015/02/imagine-just-for-moment-if-you-will.html

Liturgical Wisdom From the Mouths of Children CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 18, 2015 ... this confusing. They've spent their lives as parishioners at St. Agnes, a wonderful parish in St. Paul where sacred liturgy is always celebrated beautifully and with great reverence. Consequently, they are totally unfazed by the liturgical use of Latin, but I'm not sure the younger two even recognized the schlocky liturgies we attended as "Mass." (Coming out of one, our two-year-old said something about "the party" we had just attended. And our eventual return to St. Agnes inspired him to ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/XYhX-0M8770/liturgical-wisdom-mouths-children

More Controversy Over the NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 11, 2015 ... Avenue to the sound of fife and drum that motivates these groups. They are propelled, rather, by a deep desire to tar Catholics as bigots, and so to make them, their views, and their Church completely unacceptable to polite society. For years, the parade's policy on the matter of banners was elegantly simple: Nobody marches under a political banner. This gave parade organizers something like plausible deniability against the charge that they were deliberately ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/7oE4E33FdJk/latest-controversy-st-patricks-day-parade

Baritones Begone TEA AT TRIANON - February 3, 2015 Dr. Anthony Esolen for The Catholic Thing : What did a Greek monk have in common with the itinerant Methodist, traveling across the ocean to evangelize his cousins in the New World? What did the Roman poet Venantius Fortunatus ( The Royal Banners Forward Go ) have in common with Chesterton, that bluff journalist and warrior of wit and pen? They were all Christian men writing about the Church militant in such a way as to stir the hearts of ...http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2015/02/baritones-begone.html

Mass was lovely, the music was particularly good this week. Anne is LOVING Children's Liturgy of the Word, she's asking every day about it. Yesterday, however, she was tired, and that's never a perfect situation. When Father called the kids up to go back into the sacristy, Anne straightened herself up with excitement, but then paused: "What's wrong, Honey?" "Where's my duckie?!"

Free Speech and Respect for Diverse Religious Beliefs BLOG BY-THE-SEA - January 18, 2015 ... Charlie Hebdo is often offensive to Christianity and Islam alike in its satire, but that cannot justify a violent attack. By analogy, it is also true that teenage girls often dress less modestly than they should, but if one of them is raped and murdered, it is never true that the girl's own actions were responsible for the rape and murder. Violent actions are not a normal response, and those who react violently bear the responsibility for their reactions, always. Without assigning blame to the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blog-by-the-sea/~3/W7b0UfUVoZg/free-speech-and-respect-for-diverse-religious-beliefs.html

If Christians Had Chutzpah THE CROOKED HALO - December 29, 2014 It's December 27th and Christmas is only 2 days old...yes, 2 days. Catholic/Christians forget that up until the 25th it is Advent. Christmas is celebrated for 12 days and ends with the Feast of the Epiphany. I was told by a sage Episcopal priest that for Christians to rush about during Advent buying, wrapping and giving gifts along with Christmas cards that include a New Year greeting...is wrong. We have the luxury of sending out cards and giving gifts for almost 2 ...http://crookedhalocatholicblog.blogspot.com/2014/12/if-christians-had-chutzpah.html
