The Institution of the Rogation Days NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - May 11, 2015 ... us recall the reasons for the terrors of that time. For indeed, frequent fires, constant earthquakes, sounds in the night, portended and threatened, as it were, to make a pyre for the funeral of the whole world. ( There follows a lengthy description of the calamities and portents, culminating with the destruction by fire of a large public building on the very night of the Easter vigil. ) My predecessor, and spiritual father in baptism, the bishop Mamertus, who many years ago was succeeded by ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/MYfYXXnoqgE/the-institution-of-rogation-days.html

Is "All Are Welcome" Enough? VOX NOVA - April 29, 2015 ... God. I am on record saying that I think it is a good thing for priests to be able, in appropriate circumstances, to "come out" to their parishioners and other people they serve. It can be a deeply consoling thing for a person who experiences same-sex attraction to hear that a priest has experienced the same thing, and yet, as Damian says, refuses to restrict himself to that facet of his experience. The concern that I have with Damian's article – and I write this entirely ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/04/29/is-all-are-welcome-enough-2/

Why Say It Twice? PRODIGAL CATHOLIC WRITER BY CHARLENE C. DULINE - April 27, 2015 ... male lover. Bishop Libasci said everything would be out in the open; he promised to laicize Arsenault immediately. Well, guess what? Arsenault is lounging in a country jail (not prison) and will be released very soon to "home arrest." He will also be welcomed back to a diocese in the area to continue his mockery of the Catholic Church and his vows. Judge Arthur Brennan who sentenced Fr Gordon to this life sentence still believes that he did the right thing. Still, I wonder if he ever asks ...http://prodigalcatholicwriter.blogspot.com/2015/04/why-say-it-twice.html

Fourth Sunday of Easter IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - April 22, 2015 ... the fold. The type of priesthood the Pope wants is one where the priest goes to the outskirts where there is suffering, bloodshed, blindness that longs for sight, and prisoners in thrall to many evil masters. He is not to grow weary of people's requests despite how banal, inconvenient, or purely material they may seem because he needs to look deeper at what is driving the encounter – the person's underlying hope and desire for divine comfort, for being anointed with ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2015/04/fourth-sunday-of-easter.html

They are called there by God that by exercising their proper function and led by the spirit of the Gospel they may work for the sanctification of the world from within as a leaven." While, according to the same document, "It is true that those in holy orders can at times be engaged in secular activities, and even have a secular profession," the Church's ordained members "are by reason of their particular vocation especially and professedly ordained to the sacred ministry."

The Authentic St. Patrick A CATHOLIC MOM IN HAWAII - March 17, 2015 ... Christianity have not been the same since. Meet the authentic St. Patrick. Fact over Myth His life was clouded by legend, but peeling away the myth we discover that what is factually known about St. Patrick is far more interesting. He never chased the snakes out of Ireland, nor do we have any certainty that he used the shamrock to teach the Trinity to his converts. History possesses no written records about Britain or Ireland from the fifth century except those few about Patrick. Quite simply ...http://hicatholicmom.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-authentic-st-patrick.html

Later in response to a question he spoke about the book he had contributed to, 'Remaining in the Truth of Christ', he expressed his concern that those who present Catholic teaching are now regarded as 'divisive' or even dissident. I really felt for him, this seemed to be a cause of real pain for him not so much that he should be regarded as a dissident but that ...http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/2015/03/rlb-meets-rlb.html

Music for the Eucharistic Sacrifice (Part 2) NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - February 16, 2015 ... words of Pius XII, it is as if we are looking at another world, not just another decade or era. When is the last time you have met someone who is concerned to "abhor any profane influence"? Catholics today so readily compromise their faith, morals, and worship by prostituting themselves to the latest fashion that it seems they are rather more eager to embrace the profane in all of its vanity than to reject it for the poison it is. Far from abhorring the profane, they court it, embrace it, and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/o6oOOfZQtDk/music-for-eucharistic-sacrifice-part-2.html

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 first move is ...http://odondecastro.blogspot.com/2015_02_01_archive.html#3742704491259211605

The arms of Mother Mary are like the 'ladder' on which the Son of God comes down to us, the ladder of God's condescension. This is what we heard in the first reading, from the Letter to the Hebrews: Christ became 'like His brothers and sisters in every respect, so that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest'. This is the twofold path taken by Jesus: He descended, He became like us, in order then to ascend with us to the Father, ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/02/francis-consecrated-persons-must-guide.html

The Year of Consecrated Life (4): What Is "Consecration"? CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - January 31, 2015 ... theological analysis, Fr Laurentin follows St Thomas Aquinas in recognising that it is only persons who are consecrated in the sense of being engaged in the life of God, and that places and objects are consecrated only with regard to their purpose. The final section of this Chapter is entitled "The essence of Consecration": Consecration properly so called is nothing else but divinization : the transformation of human life into divine life by the communication of the latter, offered to our ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-year-of-consecrated-life-4-what-is.html
