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

When Teaching Truth Stops Being a Church Priority CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 17, 2015 ... into a society that rejects the Faith ever more comprehensively has mostly led them to redefine Catholic belief as strictly private opinion or an idiosyncratic restatement of existing social aspirations. For conservatives, Faith often merged with faith in America. For liberals, who have had more intellectual and organizational influence, Love became mostly equivalent to social welfare as understood by their secular colleagues, and the Divine Other tended to give way to the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/snkqZWhocMo/reality-matters

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. I never realized how many of the Japanese ideals combine with saintly living, especially as seen through Takashi Nagai's eventful life. My review here. The Bells of Nagasaki by Takashi Nagai Among the wounded on the day they dropped the bomb on Nagasaki was a young ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2015/02/lenten-reading-big-list-of-nonfiction_13.html

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

Modern-Day Hermits: Answering the Call to Solitude, Prayer DA MIHI ANIMAS - January 28, 2015 The following comes from The Catholic World Report: When Sister Mary Diana, 83, of Springfield, Oregon, became a consecrated hermit almost 40 years ago, she was among the first in the US. "There were some, but not like what you've got now," said Sister Mary Diana, who lives with Sister Mary Magdalene, 89, who was also among the country's first hermits. If the ease with which hermits and hermitages can be found on the Internet is any indication, more and more people ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/01/modern-day-hermits-answering-call-to.html

Casting Out Devils From Your Life DA MIHI ANIMAS - January 27, 2015 The following comes from the Catholic Exchange: Jesus said with the utmost clarity : "Some devils can only be cast out by prayer and fasting."(Mt. 17:21) Often the devil or devils have a real stronghold in our lives, and to make things worse, we are not even aware of it. One of the greatest victories of the devil is to hide or camouflage himself, or better yet, trick us into believing that he does not even exist! Saint Ignatius of Loyola, in his rules for discernment (Rule ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/01/casting-out-devils-from-your-life.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

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

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

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
