Flashback Friday: Johnny Carson and the Meaning of Death IN OTHER WORDS - April 24, 2015 ... but his comments make it clear that he's not always a comprehending Catholic. (In Cavuto's defense, he wrote this column in 2003; perhaps he's corrected himself since then). The Catholic writer James Hitchcock, a man eminently more qualified than Neil Cavuto to address the subject, comments on this tendency: This compulsory praise includes a compulsory insistence that the deceased is already in heaven, indeed has always been one of God's favorite people, ...http://hadleyblog.blogspot.com/2015/04/flashback-friday-johnny-carson-and.html

The Feast of St. George! ARE WE THERE YET? - April 23, 2015 ... passed down to us in the Golden Legend , has dragons and princesses running around, with our hero saving the day.

God the Same Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Lent 5) HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - March 21, 2015 An enthusiastic student bounced into music class one day and asked the teacher "What's the good news for today?" The teacher picked up a tuning fork and struck it. A clear note emerged and the teacher said, "There's the good news for today. That, my friend, is an A. It was an A yesterday, and it will be an A tomorrow, and next week, and for a thousand years.

We must remain faithful to the today of the Church, no the yesterday or tomorrow .

Good Bye, Son ST. WALBURGA'S BLOG - March 10, 2015 St. Peter, Piers' Patron (Monday, the 9th) I have spent most of the day not thinking. I did many last minute errands for my son, not thinking about it. I talked to my mother on the phone about nothing, not thinking about it. I thought about all the things I was upset about, or stressed about, or wanted to do that I couldn't right now, not thinking about it. I am sitting here eating chocolate chip cookies and drinking milk and it is finally hitting me. My son, Piers, is ...http://stwalburgas.blogspot.com/2015/03/good-bye-son.html

Saint David and Naas ST. CONLETH'S CATHOLIC HERITAGE ASSOCIATION - March 1, 2015 Lives of the Irish Saints, Volume III March 1 is the feast of Saint David, the patron of Wales. Ireland, however, can also claim to have a long tradition of devotion to the Welsh patron and the parish church at Naas, County Kildare, is dedicated to Saint David. As diocesan historian, Father Michael Comerford explains, the dedication can be traced back to the influence of Cambro-Norman settlers, many of whom had links to the Pembrokeshire area: The parochial church of ...http://catholicheritage.blogspot.com/2015/03/saint-david-and-naas.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

For conservatives, Faith often merged with faith in America.

Reflections on Dark Church History ARNOBIUS OF SICCA - February 16, 2015 ... were right to be offended by this overly broad statement. However, one thing I have noticed about the response to Obama's words is that some of my fellow Catholics seem to go in the opposite extreme. Instead of saying that the abuses were the norm, some of my fellow Catholics try to deny or downplay the fact that these abuses did exist. Such behavior is, of course, scandalous when it comes to our witness to non-Catholics. It looks like we're belittling the suffering that was caused or behaving ...http://arnobius-of-sicca.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflections-on-dark-church-history.html

Paul Glynn combines vivid descriptions, character insights, and just enough Japanese history so that we have context. As a result I wound up admiring the Japanese people even more than I did already.

Lenten Reading COFFEE AND CANTICLES - February 9, 2015 It's that time of year to think: what am I gonna do for lent this year? If you read Catholic blogs and websites you'll never lack for suggestions. Prayer, fasting, almsgiving. There's so many ways to do these. Spiritual reading comes under the heading of prayer. Depending on what you select, and how you read it, the reading itself is prayer. Due to its status as liturgy, the Liturgy of the Hours is a prime example of this. If you don't regularly pray the Office of ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/rT5Cn77E53w/lenten-reading.html

Saints of the Day: Timothy and Titus DA MIHI ANIMAS - January 26, 2015 The following comes from the American Catholic site: What we know from the New Testament of Timothy's life makes it sound like that of a modern harried bishop. He had the honor of being a fellow apostle with Paul, both sharing the privilege of preaching the gospel and suffering for it. Timothy had a Greek father and a Jewish mother named Eunice. Being the product of a "mixed" marriage, he was considered illegitimate by the Jews. It was his grandmother, ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/01/saints-of-day-timothy-and-titus.html

John the Baptist is standing with two of his disciples near the Jordan River. One of those disciples is specifically identified as Simon Peter's brother Andrew, but the other disciple is not identified. This has led many scholars and saints to theorize that this other disciple was St. John himself, since John is never mentioned by name in his gospel. He's either referred to as "the beloved disciple" or ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2015/01/i-am-catholic-but-or-but-im-catholic.html
