Don't Just Discern Your Vocation DA MIHI ANIMAS - April 28, 2016 The following comes from the Catholic Exchange: There's a cause for today's vocation shortage that's rarely addressed. Too many people are discerning; not enough people are deciding. I know they mean well, but instead of courageously pursuing the priesthood or religious life they form safe communities where they can muse on ideals instead of act on principles. I call them the Order of Perpetual Discerners. I'm not questioning their piety. I wouldn't dream of impugning ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2016/04/dont-just-discern-your-vocation.html

Studying Genesis - Resources HAPPY CATHOLIC* - April 19, 2016 ... scripture from a literary standpoint as well as how modern translation tends to explain rather than accurately translate is almost worth the price of admission alone. Genesis 1-11 and Genesis 12-50 . I originally read this online and it is no longer available free or to individuals, so we're lucky that it has been published. This is the first study I ever read which really made Genesis seem personal instead of a lot of old religious myths. It offers spiritual insights to ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2016/04/studying-genesis-resources.html

Landscape ABBEY ROADS - April 6, 2016 Still sick. When you're sick you really get to examine your conscience. Today's the feast day of Blessed Pierina Morosini. She died fighting off a rapist - he crushed her face with a stone I think. She was coming home from work. There is something about her that reminds me of my old neighborhood. I've been able to paint a bit. A couple of hours a day. I'm disappointed in the work however. I was reading a few conservative blogs or sites. Came across a ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2016/04/landscape.html

New Cardinal Sarah Interview: "Being Good" Is Not Enough RORATE CÆLI - April 5, 2016 ... This leads us to consider everything as "good", falsifying in this way even all that is truly part of the life of man. An important contemporary philosopher, Fabrice Hadjadj, has coined a brilliant formula, speaking on the "heresies of charity" of modern man, who confuses charity with the simple desire for good (at best) or almsgiving (in the worst case). But charity is the love of God: therefore, "we are" charity, and we give witness of charity towards others because God ...http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2016/04/new-cardinal-sarah-interview-being-good.html

WORLD WAR II PARIS, POST DEPRESSION NEW YORK AND MODERN DAY CALAIS ILLUMINATED BY GRACE: SAINT MARIA SKOBTSOVA, DOROTHY MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - March 31, 2016 ... Maria Skobstova, in Calais, for distribution to refugees under the supervision of Brother Johannes Maertens, formerly of the Catholic Worker House in Harringay, North London. 'Extraordinary' was code for 'extremist/terrorist', so of course our answer to the policeman was 'no'. But, 'yes', there were many extraordinary things about the trip: St John Vianney's had, in just over two weeks, collected £1300 in cash for the refugees. Likewise, at short notice, two minibuses ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2016/03/world-war-ii-paris-post-depression-new.html

St. Augustine of Hippo wrote that peace without justice and liberty is an "unjust peace," as opposed to the "tranquility of order."

On a Hunt for Mercy This Lent... LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - March 2, 2016 Good morning all! I have a long day today (on evening reference duty), but I felt happy and soothed this morning rather than a sense of dread. I'm attributing it to the discovery of a new book that I started reading yesterday, and also your role in my life. *heart* What the heck am I talking about?!

Why Natural Law Is a Superior Guide to Life CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 18, 2016 ... Catholic—but people who run things today don't accept that and don't seem likely to do so any time soon. Even so, it might be possible for a governing consensus to form around the principles or at least concept of natural law. The idea of government in accordance with man's nature and natural good could then give discussion a reference point and some degree of coherence even though disagreements over important issues would remain. A problem with the proposal is the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/EgZKJltbOJ4/why-natural-law-is-a-superior-guide-to-life

Casting Out Devils From Your Life DA MIHI ANIMAS - February 18, 2016 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/2016/02/casting-out-devils-from-your-life.html

It is decorated with figures of the saints, often stories from the life of Christ or the Virgin, to proclaim outwardly, even prior to the use of any words, the burden of its inner message of holiness.

Saints of the Day: Timothy and Titus DA MIHI ANIMAS - January 26, 2016 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/2016/01/saints-of-day-timothy-and-titus.html
