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

St. Francis De Sales: Model Evangelist CATHOLIC FIRE - January 23, 2015 ... doctorate in law. His father desired that he become a lawyer and politician. However, he felt called to the priesthood and was ordained during the time of the Protestant Reformation. The Catholic Church at this time was losing many of its parishioners to the new churches of the Protestant Reformation and Francis set out to restore Catholicism to the area around Lake Geneva known as Chablais. For three years, he trudged through the countryside, his feet frozen and bleeding, as ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2015/01/st-francis-de-sales-model-evangelist.html

"I Am a Catholic, but …" or "But, I'm a Catholic ..." FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - January 18, 2015 ... lasting—impression on him! Today's gospel reading tells the story. 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

TRADITIONAL LITURGY IN ITS POST-VATICAN II FORM - II: EUCHARISTIC PRAYER II by Father Louis Bouyer Cong. Orat MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - January 3, 2015 ... need of reform. Perhaps the most glaring mistake was that Pope Pius V used the priest's private mass as the basic model for all other masses. What the priest said privately when he is without a congregation had to be said by the celebrant at all masses. This was thoroughly untraditional and portrayed an understanding of the priest and of the Mass very foreign to the teaching of the Vatican II documents present us with a fuller Catholic Tradition. It gives the impression that ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2015/01/traditional-liturgy-in-its-post-vatican.html

A Comment on Fr. Dwight Longenecker's Article on St. Basil the Great: "Arianism Today" BLOG BY-THE-SEA - January 2, 2015 On this feast day of St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzum, Fr. Dwight Longenecker has a post at Patheos about Arianism today. Here's a taste: "Today Arianism takes a different form, and comes to us in the guise of humanism. . . . This watered down Christianity is our modern form of Arianism. The cultural context of the heresy and it's expression is different, but the essence of the heresy is the same as it always was: "Jesus Christ is a created ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blog-by-the-sea/~3/kG3oV7szSQM/a-comment-on-fr-dwight-longeneckers-article-on-st-basil-the-great-arianism-today.html

The Blessed Virgin in the History of Christianity INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - January 1, 2015 ... as Son of Mary. St. Matthew, writing for the Jews, stressed Christ's descent from Abraham. St. Luke, disciple of St. Paul, traced Christ's origin to Adam, the father of the human race. Yet both writers were at pains to point out that Mary's Son fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah about the Messiah. He was to be born of a virgin to become Emmanuel, which means "God with us." Luke gave a long account of the angel's visit to Mary to announce that the Child would be holy and would ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2015/01/the-blessed-virgin-in-the-history-of-christianity.html

Merry Christmas Sort Of BOINKIE'S BLOG - December 24, 2014 ... this protestant professor points out that the Newsweek article is inaccurate according to modern bible studies, except of course in the PC Jesus seminar types who are not considered experts except the Mainstream media but a lot of those lies are still thrown by protestants against catholics here, who often don't know enough about church history to refute them. Their meme: the early church believed what we believe, and only those evil Catholics with Constantine decided to make ...http://boinkie.blogspot.com/2014/12/merry-christmas-sort-of.html

Abortion: When Does a Person Become a Person? Καθολικός διάκονος - December 20, 2014 ... does human life begin? Does it begin at conception? When does conception occur? Is there a "moment" of conception? According to the teaching of the Catholic Church, "Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception" ( Catechism of the Catholic Church, par 2270 ). I suppose there is some ambiguity as to when "the moment of conception" occurs. However, given what is at stake, namely the inherent sanctity and dignity of each and ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/12/abortion-when-does-person-become-person.html

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

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

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

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
