Catholics have a Pope, which they consider a vicar for Christ — an infallible stand-in, if you will — that heads the Church. Protestants believe no human is infallible and Jesus alone heads up the Church. Of course the pope is a "difference" between Catholics and Protestants. The very name "Protestant" bespeaks of the protest of certain men and their followers in the 16th century who left the Church ...http://stwalburgas.blogspot.com/2014/04/a-catholic-laymans-take-on-twelve.html

Saving Catholic Culture From Destruction CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 3, 2014 What kind of mindset built all the immigrant Catholic parishes of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the Americas? Was it a way of thinking predicated on practical limitations; on being "realistic" in the mundane sense of the word? This can hardly be so. Something deeply potent—and even slightly irrational to the modern mind—had to have been the driving force behind the postponement of personal comfort and social success long enough ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/FQFVC0LJDrk/saving-catholic-culture-from-destruction

Lectio Divina: Tools of the Workshop NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - March 17, 2014 Kate Edwards, of Saints Shall Arise , has written a thoughtful piece, "Lectio divina: On memory, study and the Rule of Faith," concerning the dangers of what might be called "raw" or "individualistic" lectio divina —that is, taking up the Bible without preparation, reading it without guidance, trying to figure it out completely on one's own. This is the kind of thing that has led, in past centuries, to wild new heresies, and, among many people, to confusion.

Catholic Techie Karina Fabian CATHOLICMOM.COM - March 10, 2014 Today's Catholic Techie is someone who I always imagine with introductory music, pump-you-up music like they do while the basketball team is warming up on the floor.

Does she have different coffee than I do? Turns out, no. She's just using the gifts God gave her and ...http://catholicmom.com/2014/03/10/catholic-techie-karina-fabian/
