I am very pleased to say that real progress is being made in finalising the plan for the Diocese. The "proposal document" published in June of this ...http://mariesgem.blogspot.com/2016/11/pastoral-letter_27.html
Homily for Today's Mass G-MANS JOURNEY - November 20, 2016 My brothers and sisters in Christ, this Sunday, the Feast of Christ the King, marks the closing of Year C of the Liturgical Calendar. This special Feast reminds us that over and above being the universal King, Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church. His Divine reign stretches out from the alpha of time to the omega. There is no other true King, for God is One. Today's First Reading from the Second Book of Samuel [2 Sam. 5:1-3] spoke of the elders anointing David as the ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2016/11/homily-for-todays-mass.html
Homily - 2 October 2016 - How Could We Have Fallen So Low? SERVANT AND STEWARD - October 2, 2016 ... "unprofitable servants" of Jesus; rather than doing "what we were obliged to do," we have done our wills ( Luke 17:10 ). Here we do well to remember what Pope Francis reminded us of this past Thursday, namely, "the answer to the drama of evil lies in the mystery of Christ."  Saint Paul, of course, knew this, which is why he urged Saint Timothy not to be ashamed of witnessing to Jesus Christ before the world. Indeed, his admonition to the young bishop focused on three things: power, love, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/WRrkUZM0IT8/homily-2-october-2016-how-could-we-have.html
Allowing the Unworthy Reception of Our Eucharistic Lord CRISIS MAGAZINE - September 23, 2016 ... growing." It's as if the "proud" and "strong" are still allowed their elite spiritual athletics, while the "humble" are finally nourished by their formerly frigid, derelict Mother Church. Many have strongly lamented the Pope's letter and its ramifications for orthodoxy and unity and reiterated the legitimacy and necessity of opposing its "permission" for grave sins. "The Eucharist, of course, is the greatest treasure that Christ gave the Church; it must be safeguarded, and we ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/C6CYy6x3aFE/unworthy-reception-eucharistic-lord
Dragon Brothers and Insect Brothers THE QUOTIDIAN READER - August 31, 2016 ... I have started bringing out my fleece-lined tights, though there will be little occasion to wear them for several more weeks because the afternoons are still plenty warm. Yesterday we found out our dragon names. You take the last two letters of your first name, the first two letters of your last name, the last two letters of your mom's name, and the first letter of your dad's name. Sort of like a knit/purl rib stitch. My dragon name is ...http://quotidianmoments.blogspot.com/2016/08/dragon-brothers-and-insect-brothers.html
Are Traditional Catholics "Weird"? NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - August 29, 2016 ... others [the pagans] make a theatre of their house; you must make a church of your home. For where there is a psalm, prayer, the dance of prophets, and a pious attitude among the singers, one would not err in calling such a gathering a church." Critics of traditionalists often accuse them of withdrawing from society and forming their own communities. While we know there can be an unhealthy way of doing this, it is no less clear that there is a healthy and indeed necessary way of doing this in a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/hlVFoq-E1q0/are-traditional-catholics-weird.html
Mud, Water, and Spirit: Why Not Become Fire? Καθολικός διάκονος - August 14, 2016 ... great is my anguish until it is accomplished!" Jesus here was likely referring to the baptism of his passion, death, and resurrection; his literal dying, being buried, and rising to new life. When you were baptized you, too, experienced this, at least ritually. In baptism, confirmation, and in each Eucharist, you and I are sent to be fire-starters. The result of this baptism, just as the result of his baptism by John in the river Jordan, was an unleashing of ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/08/mud-water-and-spirit-why-not-become-fire.html
