Feast of the Annunciation of Our Lord MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - March 25, 2015 ... reflections on the phrase, "Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary" . I "Conceived." This is said of the Son of God, but it sounds passive; an Other is active in this conception, and he will be named immediately: the Holy Spirit. And an Other is she who conceives: the Virgin Mary. Just as a child is passive when conceived, whereas the parents take part actively. But it is only later on that a child awakens to consciousness, whereas the Son of God possesses eternal consciousness ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2015/03/feast-of-annunciation-of-our-lord.html

Un-Imprimatur'd Thoughts VIDEO MELIORA, PROBOQUE; DETERIORA SEQUOR - March 23, 2015 ... I recall travel to foreign lands as of a similar quality because I felt the foreign held an answer, the key, and something inherently transcendent. The magic of the Ireland trip was that I believed in magic: I believed I might see a faerie, visible or otherwise. I felt the land inhabited a spirituality denied to poor ol' Ohio. This cult of the foreign, be it a foreign body (i.e. a naked girl having parts I lack) or a foreign land (i.e. Ireland, with it's spirits and land-specific tonalities), ...http://poncer.blogspot.com/2015/03/un-imprimaturd-thoughts.html

Humility Will Praise AIRMARIA.COM - March 13, 2015 ... Again, this is a test of our charity. lf we do not observe much to praise in our neighbor; one thing is certain: we do not know him well enough, love him well enough. lf we come to love him more, we shall have our own reward of seeing more and more to praise. The heart that loves little always sees little or perhaps even nothing to praise. The heart that loves much will see something to praise where others may not. But there are qualities and characteristics of praise. Praise ...http://airmaria.com/2015/03/13/humility-will-praise/

RLB Blesses RLB FR RAY BLAKE'S BLOG - March 10, 2015 ... The Church teaches, as she has always taught, that homosexual activity is gravely sinful, as it distorts one of the most sacred and fundamental dimensions of human life. Even the inclination to homosexual activity is 'objectively disordered' (CDF, 1986) in the sense that such a sexual inclination, with its associated tendencies, feelings and expressions, is not properly directed to spousal union, marriage, and procreation. The Church, of course, welcomes all ...http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/2015/03/rlb-meets-rlb.html

A Catholic Reply to the Charge of Bigotry CRISIS MAGAZINE - March 5, 2015 ... "access to employment and to professions must be open to all without unjust discrimination: men and women.…" ( Catechism of the Catholic Church , n. 2433) Nonetheless, women can't be priests. That's not unjust discrimination, since differences between the sexes are real and relevant . Nor is the men-only priesthood a strange divine command at odds with everything else right and good in human relations, but a consequence of recognition that "women occupy a place, in ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/Woumc33lDSE/catholics-bigotry

Who Am I to Judge? CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 26, 2015 I am sick and tired of this "who am I to judge?" silliness. Only God can judge the state of the human soul. But it is pure humbug to suggest we cannot and should not judge human behavior. Reluctance to judge moral behavior is the inevitable consequence of moral relativism and moral subjectivism that has eroded confidence in the ability to determine objective moral truth on which sound judgment is based. Judgment is an essential component of the exercise ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/TvERtfzBJ20/who-am-i-to-judge

While the leper is helped by the provisions of the law to realize he is a leper, the sinner must be helped by the dogmas taught by Christ to realize the state of his leprous soul. The state of the sinner's soul is pitiable and charity demands that he pities himself because there is absolutely no one who can help him except God. And he must make the first move. Of course, God can always make the first move but God cannot violate the free will of the person. This ...http://odondecastro.blogspot.com/2015_02_01_archive.html#3742704491259211605

"The Gospel is the word of life: it does not oppress people, but on the contrary, frees those who are enslaved by the many evil spirits of this world: the spirit of vanity, attachment to money, pride, sensuality; the Gospel changes hearts, changes lives, transforms the inclination to evil into good resolutions. The Gospel is capable of changing people. Therefore, it is the duty of Christians to spread this redeeming power everywhere, becoming ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/02/angelus-gospel-changes-life.html

The Year of Consecrated Life (4): What Is "Consecration"? CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - January 31, 2015 ... places (the tabernacle, the Temple in Jerusalem), and times (the Sabbath) that can be consecrated - that is separated from the profane and dedicated towards God. These consecrations are also expressed in signs (circumcision), that then in themselves become consecrated. He suggests that Jesus left to his Church a much reduced ritual, comprising especially the Sacraments. Within this dynamic of consecration there is a "moment" in which God acts - it is the divine intervention which achieves a ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-year-of-consecrated-life-4-what-is.html

Practicing What We Believe CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - January 25, 2015 ... human dignity, common good, solidarity, subsidiarity, the universal use of our resources for the good of all, are all basically accepted by most Catholics. In the details is where we have disagreement. We are made in the image of God and have dignity, but when we bring up issues in our society and our place besides the poor, and those whose human rights are ignored we have a difference of opinion. We speak a lot about the common good but when it comes in ...http://catholicamericaneyesinkorea.blogspot.com/2015/01/practicing-what-we-believe.html

He starts his comments in v12 with something the Corinthians were saying to justify their immorality: everything is permissible for me. Is a Christian free to do any and everything? Does Christian profession and baptism mean you can sleep around and feed on pornography and yet get by with it? Paul asked the same question of the Romans: Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? His answer ...http://heartforgodltd.blogspot.com/2015/01/christians-in-x-rated-world.html

A Brief Thought on Charlie CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - January 10, 2015 ... much of the discussion about Charlie Hebdo has been that the material it publishes falls under this provision of freedom of expression, understood as conveying a right to say and publish pretty much anything that one wishes - regardless. I am not sure that the specification of the right contained in the last clause of Article 19 does in fact convey such a right. Article 12 of the Declaration reads, with italics added to indicate the element of the Article relevant to the present discussion: No ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/01/a-brief-thought-on-charlie.html

Theology of the Bawdy CRISIS MAGAZINE - January 6, 2015 ... not provocative or malicious. They are merely mischievous. Though, objectively, they depict sin, or at least sinful nature, they retain an element of innocence and playfulness, providing a momentary and recreational escape from the law. One may even surmise that the bawdy is a bizarre return to the Garden of Eden, where a lack of shame regarding the body dominates without the sense of sinfulness. The bawdy is undeniably more intellectual than passionate, turning on puns, absurdity, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/Krc4QwmUrS8/theology-bawdy

Mercy: How God Loves TWO CATHOLIC MEN AND A BLOG - January 1, 2015 ... is his mercy. That is, the way God loves is to give way kenotically to the other, to become less, making room for the other (93). We hear more of kenosis , or self-emptying, in Philippians 2:7, where Jesus "emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance." It is the nature of love to empty oneself to make room for the lover. The proper response to the love of God is to mirror this same self-emptying back to ...http://2catholicmen.blogspot.com/2015/01/mercy-how-god-loves.html

Yes, Virginia, Santa Has a Face CRISIS MAGAZINE - December 23, 2014 ... particular ways which may differ from their historical selves is not necessarily a mistake in history, nor is it necessarily a social or political statement. There can be room for an enculturated depiction of Santa Claus in Catholic tradition just as there is room for the Calling of St. Matthew painting, and to accuse someone who depicts Santa as darker or lighter than most natives of Turkey of not knowing what St. Nicholas really looked like would be like accusing Caravaggio of thinking ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/3vxlhORpiV0/yes-virginia-santa-face

The Role of Beauty in the Formation of Men As Men CRISIS MAGAZINE - December 18, 2014 ... manner can cause being to recede into the shadow in favor of an almost exclusive focus on that being's usefulness and practical purpose. Beauty counters this tendency and reveals something as worthwhile simply because it exists and because it is what it is. A man who has been pierced by the beauty of his bride will die for her not because his death will be of any practical use to himself, but because through her beauty (not just physical but also personal and spiritual) he has seen through a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/QPq3SIgzhCA/role-beauty-formation-men-men
