New Revelations on a Little-Known Aspect of Daniel A. Lord, S.J.'S Life THE DAWN PATROL - July 23, 2015 I went out yesterday to Chicago's Mount Olivet Catholic Cemetery to visit the graves of the parents and grandmother of Father Daniel A. Lord, S.J. (1888-1955) , the great Jesuit author who is a personal hero of mine, and to whom I dedicated My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints . What I discovered there will interest scholars and others who admire Lord's life and work. In my hands in the photo is Father Lord's biography of ...http://dawneden.blogspot.com/2015/07/new-revelation-on-little-known-chapter.html

St John XXIII on St Lawrence of Brindisi NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - July 21, 2015 Today is the feast of St Lawrence of Brindisi, who was born on the feast of St Mary Magdalene in 1559, and died on the same day at the age of sixty in 1619. Although his family was Venetian, he was born in the major port city of Brindisi, then in the Kingdom of Naples, far down Italy's Adriatic coast. After entering the Capuchins at the age of 16, he studied at the University of Padua, then the major university of the Venetian Republic, and showed a remarkable facility ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/NSdWhjFmDBc/st-john-xxiii-on-st-lawrence-of-brindisi.html

Ite Ad Joseph THAT THE BONES YOU HAVE CRUSHED MAY THRILL - July 14, 2015 ... completely that Jesus Christ may live in me fully. The Christian vocation to be re-made into the image of Christ is not easy but for us to follow Christ is to be on the path to true fulfillment and happiness. The World gives us a completely different message which is the antithesis of the Gospel; that self-satisfaction, self-gratification, self-contentment, even to the point of self-adoration and glorification, will bring us happiness and it needs to be said that this is absolutely not true. ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2015/07/ite-ad-joseph.html

The Faith and the Drink MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - July 6, 2015 ... distilled beverages, only their abuse by way of excess (CCC 2290). Indeed, one of the Church's seven sacraments necessitates alcohol. The Eucharist is the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ, but it must start out as bread and wine. But aside from this sacramental requirement and a few aging Irish stereotypes, is there really a strong link between Catholicism and alcohol, and if so, why? And what does that mean for us today? Such are the questions animating this essay. We begin ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2015/07/blog-post.html

John the Baptist's Life in Food and Water Balloon Games? You Bet! TRAINING HAPPY HEARTS - June 28, 2015 Three years ago, I recommitted to celebrating our family's Name Days and Baptism Anniversaries . This year, our local Catholic homeschool community committed to celebrating at least one saint day a month together. This past week, those two commitments converged and what resulted was a fun, faith-filled party! I had planned for our group John the Baptist party to proceed, in order, with: an opening prayer a picture book and chat about St. John the Baptist ...http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2015/06/john-baptists-life-in-food-and-water.html

A Feminist Theologian on Her Dad: A Modern Day Levi GOD IN ALL THINGS - June 21, 2015 ... at Fordham, I found myself declaring theology as my second major. My theological studies eventually led me to feminist theology. Not everyone was happy about this development and the fact that although I remained devoted to Catholicism, I often questioned some of the Church's teachings. Some family members and friends deleted me on Facebook, priests at church gave me dirty looks, and if I had a penny for every time I heard "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph help us!" after talking about my work, I would ...http://godinallthings.com/2015/06/21/a-feminist-theologian-on-her-dad-a-modern-day-levi/

Conversion... To What? THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - June 18, 2015 The other day I expressed some of my cynicism regarding the capacity of people to believe. Remember, faith is one of the "theological virtues," and, as such, a grace rather than a virtue in the Aristotelian, moral sense of the word, i.e. something that we can build up ourselves by repeated action. I build up bicep strength by repeatedly stressing it. I cannot give myself faith in this way. It is a gift. If you don't agree with me, we'll just then agree that you don't know ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2015/06/conversion-to-what.html

An Excellent Post on the Sacra Liturgia Conference MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - June 8, 2015 ... Latin Church, much less in the Church universal. The speakers at the Sacra Liturgia conference seem blissfully aware of this pair of simple facts. John recounts that all the speakers on the docket engaged in the same predictable and tired lecture formulae that we have heard since mid-2007: commence with turgid quotations from Sacrosanctum Concilium , explain how the glorious document was ignored, commend the reverence of the "EF", speak at length about how the "OF" can learn from the "EF," and ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2015/06/an-excellent-post-on-sacra-liturgia.html

Why I Remain Catholic: I Need the Sacraments TE DEUM LAUDAMUS! - June 3, 2015 Elizabeth Scalia raises the question : How about if Catholic writers from all over the internet — bloggers, reporters, poets, aggregators, newshounds, journal editors, politicians, new-media-storming priests and nuns, Catholics in secular positions — what if they all were to take a few minutes to jot down "Why I Remain A Catholic" and post it where they can, on websites or social media? The first thought that came to mind was the Eucharist. I ...http://te-deum.blogspot.com/2015/06/why-i-remain-catholic-i-need-sacraments.html

On the MARKS of the Church. GLORIA OLIVAE - May 31, 2015 1. The visible Marks of the Catholic Church. God made certain that man could easily identify His Church from other groups. So even in Eden where the Church begun He gave her visible signs. And He further gave His Church visible signs in the Old Testament, signs that foretold the visible signs He would eventually give her in the New Testament. These signs are found in the Creed; One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. The Fathers of the Church explained all ...http://odondecastro.blogspot.com/2015_06_01_archive.html#5150475371372775336

What is happening to Christians in Asia and Africa has forced us to use the word "martyr" again. Christians are being killed, en masse, and in the most horrendous ways, simply because they are Christian; all this makes us say that the age ...http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2015/05/radicati-editorial-martyrs-were-never.html

The Faithful Island Has Become a Harlot UNAM SANCTAM CATHOLICAM - May 23, 2015 " As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes " (Luke 19:41-42). Our Lord spoke these words about the city of Jerusalem, but they could easily be applied to Ireland in the wake of its shameful referendum yesterday legitimizing homosexual marriage. The faithful isle has become a whore; the land of saints and sages ...http://unamsanctamcatholicam.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-faithful-island-has-become-harlot.html

On Saints and Scholars THAT THE BONES YOU HAVE CRUSHED MAY THRILL - May 21, 2015 ... and scholars'. We should pray very much for this coiuntry. We shouldn't be surprised, even if we are horrified by Ireland's free-fall collapse. What a King did for England, the Church itself has done for Ireland, which is made the more disturbing because Ireland's stunning apostasy has occurred with no threat of violence whatsoever and within a single generation . If they vote yes, then the Irish are actually voting for their own destruction, whereas in England the cultural and religious ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2015/05/on-saints-and-scholars.html

It is important to enter summer with a "plan" for your spiritual life. Otherwise it is so easy to drift away even from the prayer commitment that you had during the year.

A Weekend of Saints ABBEY ROADS - May 16, 2015 ... life living in the hollow of a tree. I like that. Today is also the memorial of St. John Nepomucene . He is the patron of Czechoslovakia, and of confessors. He was martyred because he refused to divulge the content of the Queen's confessions to the King, who promised him honors if he did so. He didn't and was thrown off a bridge in Prague. His image and story was used by missionaries to the New World to catechize aboriginal people on the Seal of the Confessional . Ah! Tomorrow, May 17 is ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2015/05/a-weekend-of-saints.html

How to Drink Like a Saint CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 12, 2015 While researching Drinking With the Saints , I was looking for what drinks I could recommend on certain feast days of the liturgical year. What I did not expect to discover was a lesson in how to drink them. That lesson can be distilled into five key points. To drink like a saint—that is, to enjoy alcohol the way it was meant by God to be enjoyed—one must drink… With Moderation Moderation is not only the morally responsible thing to do, it is also the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/Ma7UC86uwjY/how-to-drink-like-a-saint

Don't Just Discern Your Vocation DA MIHI ANIMAS - May 9, 2015 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/2015/05/dont-just-discern-your-vocation.html

The New Evangelization Begins With Us CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 8, 2015 ... so much so that the story of the past is seen as simply the story of how the glories of the present arose out of past horrors. That view leads to endless problems. It makes desire the only available guide to action and satisfying it the only real good. Reason becomes a matter of figuring out the mechanisms for acquiring whatever it is we happen to want. Love, which consists in recognition of value independent of our own desires, loses touch with reality and becomes sentimentalized and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/FSHXwv50tAY/the-new-evangelization-begins-with-us

The English Martyrs: A Contemporary Reflection CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - May 3, 2015 There is a plaque - of modern origin - in the Church of St Mary the Virgin, the University Church in Oxford. When I stood before this plaque a few months ago, the overwhelming impression it communicated to me was one of indifference . The list is indifferent between those names that are the names of Catholics and those names that are the names of Protestants/Church of England. I suspect that none of those on the list would have found it a matter of no difference as to ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-english-martyrs-contemporary.html
