Advent Reflections on Pope/St. Gregory the Great BLOG BY-THE-SEA - December 13, 2014 ... Great had a sharp message for some of his clergy, and he drew from Ezekial's prophecy, which had a sharp message for some women of Ezekial's day. I usually use the Revised Standard Version for Bible quotes here, but it doesn't work well for Ezekial's text. St. Gregory the Great was looking at the Latin, and the Latin is apparently wrong. Both the Revised Standard Version and the Catholic modern English New American Bible (which is clearer) ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blog-by-the-sea/~3/hNnfiW94US4/advent-reflections-on-popest-gregory-the-great.html

For example, there is a cluster of three stained glass windows depicting patron saints of sailors: Saint Nicholas - a very holy bishop (also known as Santa Claus) who lived in the fourth century in Asia Minor (modern Turkey). One story tells that some sailors were once caught in a terrible storm and prayed to the good bishop, asking for his prayerful intercession. Purportedly, Nicholas appeared to the mariners and guided them to safety. Saint ...http://theresadoyle-nelson.blogspot.com/2014/11/st-andrews-chapel-quiet-treasure-at-u-s.html

"I Came to the Church Through the Traditional Latin Mass" MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - December 7, 2014 ... commitment, whether defined as "family values" or as "social justice," or with joining a community of mutual concern, acceptance, and support. Even if we accept in theory that the religion to which we claim to adhere is something much more definite, it goes against the grain to treat the definite part as more than decorative. After all, doctrine divides, and we're all pragmatists, so why emphasize that side of things? If you look at religion that way a worship service becomes something like a ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2014/12/i-came-to-church-through-traditional.html

Will the Real St. Nicholas Please Stand Up? ARE WE THERE YET? - December 6, 2014 ... the bishop (actually the archbishop) of Myra, in present-day Turkey. At that time it was a Greek province of the Roman Empire*, though its customs and traditions would have leaned to eastern. So, His Excellency would likely have worn a semblance of robes as were common in an eastern border country under Roman rule. Which, actually, didn't look like this , either: You see, when officiating, the garb of a bishop wouldn't have included a bishop's miter, as it's commonly believed ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2014/12/will-real-st-nicholas-please-stand-up.html

What the Traditional Mass Means to Me CRISIS MAGAZINE - December 4, 2014 ... the Second Vatican Council say that the Mass is "the source and summit of the Christian life." The claim seems odd to most of us today. Americans usually think religion has to do with spirituality, which we see as personal and rather vague, with moral commitment, whether defined as "family values" or as "social justice," or with joining a community of mutual concern, acceptance, and support. Even if we accept in theory that the religion to which we claim to adhere is something much more ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/eoS_IWgFYD0/traditional-mass-means

A Note on the "About The" Saints and Blesseds Biographies Posted Here BLOG BY-THE-SEA - December 2, 2014 ... saints' lives you can easily find elsewhere on the internet. I try to give you a sense of what it might have been like to have sat in a room with that person for an evening, or to have had dinner with them. When I decide what to leave in and take out, it is not so much their greatest accomplishments I am looking for as it is the very personal things that struck me about their character, things you might get to know about them if you spent an evening with them in their home. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blog-by-the-sea/~3/mpoHBAM7gNw/a-note-on-the-about-the-saints-and-blesseds-biographies-posted-here.html

Quote of the Day THE WILD REED - December 1, 2014 W hy do Christians need to believe in the Incarnation? "The point of incarnation language," the Catholic theologian Roger Haight writes, "is that Jesus is one of us, that what occurred in Jesus is the destiny of human existence itself: et homo factus est . Jesus is a statement, God's statement, about humanity as such." Humanity is the presence of God. The presence of God, therefore, lies in what is ordinary. Not in supernatural marvels. Not in a superman with whom we ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2014/12/quote-of-day_2.html

What Hierarchy Really Means CRISIS MAGAZINE - December 1, 2014 ... other hand, he should also be the most attractive example. Francis neatly falls into this discussion. His various gestures, on the one hand, have made him shockingly popular, so it seems he is trying to be evangelizer-in-chief by being the most attractive example. But on the other hand, his positions on many issues are quite unclear (at least for the majority, who do not read carefully). At best, he seems to be erring on the side of example, without clarity. At worst, he seems to be winning ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/pl1bU_zA5Ik/hierarchy-really-means

This Is Not About Chesterton UNAM SANCTAM CATHOLICAM - November 30, 2014 There is a very interesting article on Catholic Household by Steven Drummel on the question of Chesterton's apparent issues with temperance in food and drink and how this could affect his canonization. The article draws on the reminiscences of those closest to Chesterton, as well as some of his biographers, to document Chesterton's lifetime struggle with sobriety and moderation in his eating habits. The implication of the article is that this behavior suggests that ...http://unamsanctamcatholicam.blogspot.com/2014/11/this-is-not-about-chesterton.html

On Sirius XM satellite radio, up to six channels will be devoted solely to Christmas music (and one to Channukah) , some beginning as early as now, three ending on (you guessed it) the day after Christmas, and two others ending around New Year's Eve. The Latino channel goes through ...http://manwithblackhat.blogspot.com/2014/11/advent-counter-sign-for-christmas.html

Piggy-Backing on God's Memory IVY ROSARY - November 22, 2014 ... wording of the text, but the ICEL version was meant for praying, not for study, and since half of the people (women) presumably use the psalms for prayer, and some of those women find sexist language offensive, texts meant for prayer should be changed to adapt to their sensitivities. Of course not all women find such language offensive. However, many men, myself included, do find it offensive. I like to quote St. Paul, who was writing to early Christians who accused him of hypocrisy because he ...http://ivyrosary.blogspot.com/2014/11/piggy-backing-on-gods-memory.html

Amen Study November 8, 1897. Brooklyn, New York. It may come to be known as the day a saint was born. Dorothy Day knew how to live in humble circumstance after living in abundance.

And inside they might find fellow Christians all gathered round a wooden table, a makeshift altar. Voices would have been subdued, prayers whispered, the Mass offered as ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2014/11/dedication-of-lateran-basilica.html

On the Way to Heaven INTO STILLNESS - November 6, 2014 I like to think it's all about transformation here or hereafter that is if we choose by our lives to love God. Here is a homily given on All Souls Day-2014 by  Fr. Michael DePalma "-Padre Pio had many incredible, mystical gifts.  One such was the gift of being able to witness many souls in Purgatory who came to visit him during the course of a typical day.  Often they would just be there, asking him to pray for their intercession. ...http://intostillness.wordpress.com/2014/11/06/on-the-way-to-heaven/

Mass in 1863 THE MUNIMENT ROOM - November 3, 2014 ... Missal. There was no TV in those days, so there was plenty of time to work out the week's celebrations, and, anyway, ecclesiastical almanacs were cheap to buy. Every day either had a feast or hadn't: a feast would be a Double, a Semi-double, or a simple; if there was no feast the day would be a feria. There were five sorts of Doubles, in order: Doubles of the first class, Doubles of the second class, greater Doubles, Doubles and semi-Doubles. Simples were, ...http://ttonys-blog.blogspot.com/2014/11/mass-in-1863.html

"This path will lead us through problems and persecution, but only this path will lead us forward." In his homily, he spoke off the cuff about today's first reading from the book of the Apocalypse focusing on three images: a warning about earth's destruction, the multitude who appears before God and God himself.
