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.

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

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/
