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! The feast day of Our Lady of Sorrows on September 15 which follows feast of the Exaltation of the Holy ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2014/09/septembers-marian-devotion-our-lady-of-sorrows/

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. At the Altar When ...http://vultus.stblogs.org/index.php/2014/08/blessed-ildefonso-cardinal-sch/

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/

Reflection on Today's Readings, Sunday, August 24, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - August 24, 2014 ... using the paragraphs surrounding the verses as context clues – just as we would do as a student in a reading class. 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/

Sr. Lucia of Fatima, the Secrets, the Apocalypse ... And the Need to Know. ABBEY ROADS - August 24, 2014 ... of Fatima. 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/

The Kingdom of Heaven SPIRITUAL DEVOTIONAL - July 28, 2014 ... no Faith. They did give me the amazing gift of making sure that I was baptized and that I received my First Communion. 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

Catholic Exegesis: The Second Vatican Council teaches that if we are to derive the true meaning from the sacred texts, attention must be devoted "not only to their content but to the unity of the whole of Scripture, the living tradition of the entire Church, and the analogy of faith.

Reading the Rosary: The Presentation in the Temple BENEDICTUS - July 2, 2014 Holy Scripture Luke 2:21-38 "The Presentation in the Temple" by Philippe de Champaigne (c. 1648) And at the end of eight days, when He was circumcised, He was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb. And when the time came for their purification according to the law of Moses, they brought Him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord (as it is written in the law of the Lord, "Every male that opens the womb shall be called holy to ...http://www.paulusbenedictus.com/2012/10/reading-rosary-presentation-in-temple.html

He foreknew this child was Messiah and foretold that Jesus would grow up to become a source of division among Israel. Israel's faith would be tested; the test would cause many to "rise and fall" ( Lk 2:34). Thirty years later, as prophesied, Jesus confounded the Temple aristocracy and stirred division with His perfect righteousness ( Jn 8:46) and claim to divine sonship ( Mt 26:63-64; Mk ...http://www.paulusbenedictus.com/2013/01/rise-and-fall.html

Contraception, Priesthood and Sexual Abuse (Parts 1 & 2) RENEW THE CHURCH BLOG - July 1, 2014 ... Gen 38:10 And what he did was displeasing in the sight of the LORD, and he slew him also. This simple account of a primitive form of contraception was enough to convince the early Church of the grave sinfulness of contraception. The Catholic Church has consistently condemned contraception, from the beginning. The early Protestant Reformers also saw contraception as gravely sinful. Martin Luther, for example, not only saw this sinfulness of contraception in the Onan account established by God's ...http://renewthechurch.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/contraception-priesthood-and-sexual-abuse-parts-1-2/

And again, God in turn who cannot be outdone in generosity gives in full and measure, brimful, shaken together and running over. This is why the Church offers Mary the most extravagant praises because the more we praise the more we praise God for it was He who fashioned this beautiful Rose of Sharon, the pure Lily of the Valley and our bright Morning Star Luke 2:41-52 My Beloved, the events described here are ordinary at first glance.
