This Week in Madonna House - January 3-9 GETTING TO THE POINT - January 10, 2016 This week in Madonna House was another week of festivity, as we continued our way through the twelve days of Christmas.

On Epiphany we have the 'kings' bread', a sweet bread for brunch shaped like a crown. In three of the loaves a coin has been hidden, and over the course of brunch three people find the ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2016/01/this-week-in-madonna-house-january-3-9.html

Homily - The Solemnity of the Holy Family SERVANT AND STEWARD - December 27, 2015 ... God - when we were baptized into the Death and Resurrection of Christ Jesus. It was at this moment that we became "the children of God" ( I John 3:1 ). This initial holiness, though, must be fostered, strengthened, and deepened by keeping the commandments and remaining in him (cf. I John 3:24 ). We often speak of the saints – the holy ones – as the blessed. So it is that when the Church uses the word "holy," she sometimes has another meaning in mind, a secondary meaning, which we ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/NalhXtMqJNU/homily-solemnity-of-holy-family.html

To the Roman Curia: What Pope Francis Actually Said .... CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - December 22, 2015 On the 21st December, Pope Francis met with the workers of the Roman Curia, for the annual exchange of Christmas greetings. I link to the English translation at the Vatican website , but also to the Italian , which I am presuming was the language in which the address was delivered. There are a couple of points where the Italian communicates a nuance that is not successfully translated into the English. Pope Francis opened his address as follows: Vi chiedo scusa di non ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/12/to-roman-curia-what-pope-francis.html

Advent Stations NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - December 20, 2015 ... Christmas. The service is reminiscent of so many existing traditions in the Church, and in its blend of these various elements it is strikingly 'post-modern' and thus it is very much a devotional exercise born of our times. I am reminded of Pope Francis' observation in Evangelii Gaudium that "[g]enuine forms of popular religiosity are incarnate, since they are born of the incarnation of Christian faith in popular culture. For this reason they entail a personal ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/YRiieiuwwlM/advent-stations.html

Many couples, or at least one of the spouses, start to feel the stress of the holidays around now, and the result is not one of gladness and joy. Don't let the pressure of the season steal your joy or be a source of conflict.

Reflections for the 1st Week in Advent, Part 2 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - December 2, 2015 ... lip service isn't the same as truly accepting Him as our King and Savior. We need more than just words. We need a living faith that is obedient to the will of God. We need a faith that blossoms out into a love that wills and seeks our neighbors' ultimate good. Our words must be accompanied by works, as Catholic doctrine has always taught. No, it is not enough to call Jesus our Lord. He must truly be so, and for that to happen, we must obey Him, imitate Him, and make ourselves ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2015/12/reflections-for-1st-week-in-advent-part.html

We are not decorating for Christmas yet!" as my son started pulling nutcrackers exuberantly out of the bins. The turkey meatballs got overcooked as I searched in vain for the Advent candles, only to be reminded by my husband that I threw them out last year when, after years of use, they were bending outward in banana-like curves, which is disconcerting, especially when they are lit. The wreath represents last –minute scrambling, in other words, ...http://randomactsofmomness.com/my-imperfect-advent-wreath-subtitle-take-that-pinterest/
