It has been a deep joy for me to be able to both grow in and share my own love of the cornerstones and the people and place of West Virginia. Being a part of the Nazareth Farm community has opened me up to an entirely new world that I did not know existed before. In living at the Farm, I have lived with and met people who talk about and reference folks like ...http://www.aggiecatholicblog.org/2015/09/matthew-25-life-charity-and-justice-newsletter-called-to-be-missionaries/
Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost 1863 THE MUNIMENT ROOM - September 26, 2015 ... Pro-Cathedral for the Diocese of St David's and Newport, yet did not make anything of the local saint. Once the Diocese of Newport (more or less today's Archdiocese of Cardiff) had been split away from the rest of South Wales, St Thomas's feast was raised in status in that diocese, but it is odd, to me at least, that the Church in England and Wales would not want to make more of an English saint whose canonisation in 1320 (he had only died in 1282) made him one of the few English saints of the ...http://ttonys-blog.blogspot.com/2015/09/eighteenth-sunday-after-pentecost-1863.html
St. Monica, Model of Evangelization CATHOLIC FIRE - August 27, 2015 ... of St. Monica , patron saint of mothers and married women. She is a saint I admire so much for her tenacity, patience, and perseverance in prayer for the conversion of her son, St. Augustine.

The men of the community pick flowers the day before and, as each woman is coming into the chapel for the liturgy on the feast, make her a corsage to wear for the day. And so the day goes, festive as anything. For the 50 year jubilarians we had a tea in the afternoon where they were feted. Another custom of the day is that it is the time when the new applicants are announced for September 8. While my rule of 'no names on the blog' holds here, I am ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/08/these-weeks-in-madonna-house-august-1-15.html

Why Is There a Dormition Fast? BYZANTINE, TEXAS - July 31, 2015 ... request. Nothing can be further from the truth. It is not our fasting that pleases God, it is the fruits of our fast (provided we fast in the proper mind set, and do not merely diet) that please Him. We fast, not to get what we want, but to prepare ourselves to receive what God wants to give us. The purpose of fasting is to bring us more in line with another Mary, the sister of Lazarus, and away from their sister Martha, who in the famous passage was "anxious and troubled about many things." ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2015/07/why-is-there-dormition-fast.html
