2016 RETREAT REFLECTION - "TO TAKE UP THE JOYFUL CALL TO MERCY" (Pope Francis) ALWAYS A JOY... - February 2, 2016 ... Catholic faith to only the times we celebrate Holy Mass in church or serve in church ministries. We are always ready to attend training to improve ourselves in our secular jobs (for a very finite life on earth!), I often wonder why it it is so difficult to encourage even Catholics serving fulltime or in church ministries to make it a priority to "be still" for God to work in our hearts and lives for just five days annually in a spiritual retreat. We plan for holidays well in ...http://alwaysajoy.blogspot.com/2016/02/2016-retreat-reflection-to-take-up.html
My Neighbor Just Tried to "Save" Me JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - January 2, 2016 ... know how to pray, and that I needed to know Him better? Same guy. I actually didn't know what he was up to when he knocked on my door because he brought me Panda Express. I thought he had come to bring food out of the kindness of his heart (still true) and to offer me his parking spot since he knew that had problems with mine... but no, he brought me God's word and predictions. No, Emmy... more charitable than that. I would like to say that I know he and others like him mean well. I know ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2016/01/my-neighbor-just-tried-to-save-me.html

The reporting was just weird all by itself and trying to sort through all that probably would have only exacerbated the unease of those I mentioned above. Anyways, let's talk about some of the highlights. Initially, Cardinal Erdo came out with a gas can and a blow torch directed at the Kasper Proposal and everybody else who was espousing heresy and other offensive doctrines. This was a big deal because (a) he's the synod's relator general and ...http://popinainteasy.blogspot.com/2015/10/so-lets-talk-about-synod.html
He Is Who We Thought He Was DISPUTATIONS - October 25, 2015 ... superficiality," false "defenders of doctrine .. who uphold its letter, but [not] its spirit." Questions of tone aside, I don't see that the Pope is actually wrong to criticize what he criticizes. Everything the Pope says shouldn't be done is being done, or at least advocated, by Catholics who consider themselves fine Catholics. Correcting the flock is what the Pope is supposed to do -- and if you haven't noticed that the Catholics he's correcting have been stubborn in ...http://disputations.blogspot.com/2015/10/he-is-who-we-thought-he-was.html
There's the Door THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - October 23, 2015 ... were not good students. They talked continuously, fooled around, etc. I threatened, etc., and nothing seemed to work for long, and so I finally kicked the three worst out of the program. I told them they could come back if they wrote me an apology letter, signed by them and by their parents. Wow, Colin, you're just like the guy from the movie Lean on Me - the no-nonsense black principal who turned that bad inner-city school around. Yes, that's exactly what happened... ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2015/10/theres-door.html
