The Daily Gospel and Readings 30 September 2014 DAILY PRAYERS AND MEDITATIONS - September 30, 2014 ... Perish the day on which I was born, the night when they said, "The child is a boy!" Why did I not perish at birth, come forth from the womb and expire? Or why was I not buried away like an untimely birth, like babes that have never seen the light? Wherefore did the knees receive me? or why did I suck at the breasts? For then I should have lain down and been tranquil; had I slept, I should then have been at rest With kings and counselors of the earth who built where now there ...http://prayersandmeditations.com/2014/09/30/the-daily-gospel-and-readings-30-september-2014/

Jesus answered and said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this."

Catholics and Concepts of Patriarchy AND SOMETIMES TEA - September 29, 2014 ... Church teaching it is clearly something Catholics should embrace. She also referred to a book called Why Men Rule (which I am unfamiliar with) as sort of "proving" that only patriarchal societies work, and all others are doomed to failure. Oh, and she says that Christian feminism is nonexistent because feminism is based on Marxist theories which are incompatible with Christianity (she couldn't explain the early feminists who wanted women to be able to vote and own property and who were active ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2014/09/catholics-and-concepts-of-patriarchy.html

Religious Imagery in Norman Rockwell Paintings CRISIS MAGAZINE - September 17, 2014 ... into the big picture, there's always room for the suspicion that you're being a bit too fanciful. To be frank, I don't see how these big-picture interpretive claims I've been making here could be seen to be fanciful at all, though. As I say, Rockwell seems to have been almost heavy-handed in his allusions to the Pauline passage. And that passage is far from obscure. One would think the connections would leap to mind. Instead, when critics start talking about Shuffleton's Barbershop, they go ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/Z6OXyk6Uixk/religious-imagery-norman-rockwell

The Great Spanking (Oops, Forgot to Use the "PC" Hitting or Beating) Debate Revisited BIBLICAL EVIDENCE FOR CATHOLICISM - September 17, 2014 ... child abuse." I chimed in a little after the discussion had begin. I've written about this previously . * * * * * I'm not scared to talk about this issue or any other. The anti-spanking thing is simply a species of post-Christian, anti-traditional liberalism, based on the fallacious reasoning that if a thing is ever abused it must be everywhere and always wrong: obliterating the clear distinction between proper and excessive, or improper use. The same sort of reasoning (not ...http://socrates58.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-great-spanking-oops-forgot-to-use.html

"' When a woman is in travail, she has sorrow , because her hour has come; but when she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembers the anguish , for joy that a child is born into the world' (Jn. 16:21). The first part of Christ's words refer to the "pangs of childbirth" which belong to the heritage of original sin; at the same time these words indicate the link that exists between the woman's motherhood and the ...http://tomperna.org/2014/09/15/mondays-with-mary-7-quotes-by-pope-st-john-paul-ii-on-our-lady-of-sorrows/

September's Marian Devotion – Our Lady of Sorrows COMMUNIO - September 1, 2014 ... Church helps us to see the human aspect of the act of faith: do we comfort the sorrowing as they grieve the death of a loved one? Always a mother, the Church directs our attention to the seven sorrows suffered by Mary, who witnessed her Son's death for us on the cross. A short prayer that we can offer: Mary most sorrowful, Mother of Christians, pray for us!

Blessed Ildefonso Cardinal Schuster, O.S.B. VULTUS CHRISTI - August 30, 2014 ... would seem that people are no longer convinced by our preaching; but faced with holiness, they still believe, they still fall to their knees and pray. People seem to live ignorant of supernatural realities, indifferent to the problems of salvation. But when an authentic saint, living or dead passes by, all run to be there. . Do not forget that the devil is not afraid of our [parish] sports fields and of our movie halls: he is afraid, on the other hand, of our holiness.

Zealot CREO EN DIOS! - August 29, 2014 ... to do so, that is a good, not a bad thing. I also agree with an early New York Times review of the book that one of the book's strengths is its picture of first-century Palestine. Many Christians have very little knowledge of the religious, economic and political environment into which Jesus was born and preached. Understanding the relationship between Rome and the Jewish upper class, as well as the role of the Temple and the power of those who controlled it, is a helpful aid in reading the ...http://susanjoan.wordpress.com/2014/08/29/zealot/

A Catholic Study Bible is highly recommended, as in the footnotes, it explains history important to understanding a passage, cultural innuendos and translation issues. All of those aspects are important in understanding the scriptures. That being said, one of the wonderful things about the Word of God is that it is a living word. It is not something that was written ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/reflection-on-todays-readings-sunday-august-24-2014/

Likewise we know Fatima is the name of Mohammed's daughter and the village of Fatima was named after a Muslim convert by the same name. That legend seems to be interchangeable with another one, which I won't take the time to spell out here. Did Our Lady say anything about Islam? As for the Blessed Virgin addressing Islam by name, the only instance I can find is based on a message from Medjugorje. Although it is believed a Sufi mystic Hasan Shushud predicted the events at Medjugorje ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2014/08/sr-lucia-of-fatima-secrets-apocalypse.html

Then another sign appeared in the sky; it was a huge red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven diadems. Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky and hurled them down to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth, to devour her child when she gave birth. She gave birth to a son, a male child, destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up ...http://prayersandmeditations.com/2014/08/15/the-daily-gospel-and-readings-15-august-2014/

The Assumption - What It Is and What It Ain't SOUTHERN FRIED CATHOLICISM BLOG - August 15, 2014 ... at the end of her life. Mary's bodily assumption into heaven was also not a singular instance in salvation history. As believers, we await the second coming of our Lord when we, too, will be bodily assumed into heaven. But, even before Mary, God has already done this for some of our forefathers in faith. First of all, there're the Old Testament examples of Enoch (Genesis 5:24, Hebrews 11:5) and Elijah (2 Kings 2:11) who both seem to have been "taken up" to heaven by God. Then, in Matthew's ...http://www.southernfriedcatholicism.com/2014/08/the-assumption-what-it-is-and-what-it.html

Holding on to Faith in an Imperfect Church THE IMPRACTICAL CATHOLIC - August 7, 2014 ... even if I behave in a manner which suggests that I don't get it. In this rather limited sense, hypocrisy doesn't pertain to the truth of Catholic doctrine. Nevertheless, Christian hypocrisy does undermine our credibility. One of my favorite quotations on this subject comes from — wait for it — G. K. Chesterton: Of course, I mean that Catholicism was not tried; plenty of Catholics were tried, and found guilty. My point is that the world did not tire of the church's ideal, but of its ...http://impracticalcatholic.blogspot.com/2014/08/holding-on-to-faith-in-imperfect-church.html

FEAST of the TRANSFIGURATION of the LORD LIVING SCRIPTURE - August 5, 2014 ... his garments became "white like the light." Peter responded by acknowledging "how good it is for us to be here." And then the cloud, the ancient sign of the very presence of God overshadowed them, and the voice, "This is my beloved Son, listen to him." What on earth is going on here? From our historical perspective we can look back and say that the disciples were given a preview of the glory that belongs to Jesus after his death and resurrection and in the fullness of the ...http://livingscripture.wordpress.com/2014/08/06/feast-of-the-transfiguration-of-the-lord/

Funeral Lectionary: Psalm 148 CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - August 1, 2014 ... chapter, the 14th, giving readings for "Funerals for Baptized Children." The Scripture passages are mostly the same from the previous chapter. Shortened, though–which is an interesting choice. I suppose if many children attended a funeral for one of their peers, it would make sense for readings more comprehensible to younger persons. But the same might be said for the funeral of a teacher or mentor. Anyway, one of two unique passages is this hymn of praise from the ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/08/01/funeral-lectionary-psalm-148/

But as soon as I was Confirmed in the church, we stopped going to church. My faith life was put on hold. I struggled mightily with my Faith in my teens. I made the youthful mistake of being tempted by my parents' anti-Christian rhetoric. I started to think, 'Perhaps, there is no God.' After I left home, I tried to bargain with God. I said, "Well, I have no proof there IS a ...http://spiritualdevotional.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-kingdom-of-heaven.html

His first letter goes unanswered, which rubs him the wrong way from the outset. When the class goes to visit their pen pals, Josh is prepared to gather the facts he needs to write his paper and be done with it. Instead, he finds that the feisty Pie, who talks a lot about his love of the Yankees and his Catholic faith, captures something in his imagination that he can't quite put his finger on. ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/07/catholic-book-club-gate.html

People are bored, so be a magician. You'll really make a name for yourself then. And so it goes for the second stage of a man's life. We wish to make a name for ourselves. Power and prestige set in to tempt a man to the point of narcissism. This can be seen in anything from climbing the corporate ladder to trying to impress others in church ministry, or just spending inordinate amounts of time ...http://2catholicmen.blogspot.com/2014/07/temptations-with-christ-and-bishop-sheen.html
