Ascension Thursday RECTA RATIO - May 25, 2017 Happily, the Archdiocese of Boston adheres to the old rule, that the Ascension falls 40 days after Easter, on a Thursday. And even if it didn't, since I follow the 1962 Ordo (with some exceptions and additions) today would still be Ascension Thursday, a holy day of obligation.http://rectaratio.blogspot.com/2017_05_21_archive.html#3019220999302234539

Novena: Prelude MAN WITH BLACK HAT - May 25, 2017 ... Liturgy today, in which case the aforementioned silliness does not apply, today will be remembered as just another Easter weekday. If only they put the right spin on it, in which case it would go something like this: "Most biblical scholars agree that Jesus ascended into Heaven forty-three days after He rose from the dead, not forty days as previously believed. The number of forty was arrived at by the end of the third century, to make it easier for Christians to count the ...http://manwithblackhat.blogspot.com/2017/05/novena-prelude.html

Reflection for the 6th Week of Easter, Part 2 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - May 24, 2017 ... to make things easier. I can see that, I suppose, but my question is this: "When did it ever hurt a Catholic to go to Mass one extra day during the week?" Catholics make room in their busy schedules for all kinds of things: sporting events, concerts, parties, dinner dates, etc., etc. Why not one more Mass? What's so hard about that? What's so inconvenient? These questions get to the very heart of people's priorities, which are often sorely mixed up. Mass is the most important event of the ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2017/05/reflection-for-6th-week-of-easter-part-2.html

Raymond Suriani. Read John 14: 15-21.) [For the audio version of this homily, click here: Sixth Sunday of Easter ] My homily today is entitled, "Love and Obedience." In the minds of many people these days, those are two ideas that definitely don't go together, spiritually speaking. And this is true even for ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2017/05/love-and-obedience.html

Abolish Ordinary Time CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 18, 2017 ... does not here mean what it usually means in English—commonplace, standard, no special or distinctive features—but, rather, it refers to the counting of the weeks, as in "ordinal" numbers that define something's position in a series, such as "first," "second," or "third." In the official Latin, this time is simply referred to as tempus per annum, or "time through the year." This being said, there really is no difference. These days are ordinary, tied by name to neither of the great ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/3Nn3ISUJTVM/abolish-ordinary-time

Thursday, May 18, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - May 17, 2017 Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter (Acts 15:7-21; John 15: 9-11) What if the Catholic Church, in order to foster unity with Protestant communities of faith, relaxed the requirement of attending Sunday Eucharist? Surely many would oppose the change as an aberration to a Catholic custom that has been practiced almost since the beginning. Others would say that there is no Scriptural mandate to assist in the Sunday Eucharist and therefore the Church precept is alterable. ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/05/thursday-may-18-2017.html

Divine Mercy Sunday Year a 2017 HOMILIES OF A JESUIT - April 26, 2017 Familiar as we may be with Victor Hugo, Quasimodo applies less to the Hunchback of Notre Dame than to the Sunday in the Octave of Easter. It is Quasimodo Sunday--taken from the first word of the Introit [1] . Alternatively, it is Dominica in albis which refers to the de-robing rite of the Neophytes who for 8 days had worn the white garment of their baptism. These white covers or albs, a powerful witness to the baptismal vows, are to be kept in the Cathedral treasury. We ...http://homiliesofajesuit.blogspot.com/2017/04/divine-mercy-sunday-year-2017.html

Truly Awe-Some Mercy DOMINE, DA MIHI HANC AQUAM! - April 23, 2017 2 nd Sunday of Easter (Divine Mercy) Fr. Philip Neri Powell, OP OLR, NOLA Luke tells us in Acts that when the disciples devoted themselves to the apostolic teachings and gave themselves to a communal life in Christ, that when they broke bread together in prayer, "Awe came upon everyone." Awe came upon everyone. Awe is a powerful passion. It's an overwhelming feeling of reverence, of worship, and sometimes dreadful fear. The disciples – while living as Christ taught ...http://hancaquam.blogspot.com/2017/04/truly-awe-some-mercy.html

Easter 2017 BACK BAY VIEW - April 21, 2017 Alleluia, everyone! He is risen indeed! We had a beautiful celebration of Easter here. The whole family that is here and not at college attended the Easter Vigil where several friends were confirmed, and one friend's husband and baby were baptized and the husband confirmed, which was an answer to long years of prayer. Despite the late night, the kids did not sleep in, and woke up ready to celebrate Easter morning by finding their baskets ...http://backbayview.blogspot.com/2017/04/easter-2017.html

Chrism Mass Homily - Dennis Nulty (Kildare & Leighlin) 2017 CLERICAL WHISPERS - April 14, 2017 ... days have passed as one continuum that starts Holy Thursday evening and concludes at the great Easter Vigil. Easter is to the year what Sunday is to the week. Our Lenten fast gives way to our Easter feast! The unusual thing about these Holy Week days is that none of them fall into the category of 'Holydays of Obligation', they are much more than just a matter of fulfilling an obligation or ticking a box. ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/04/chrism-mass-homily-dennis-nulty-kildare.html

Ash Wednesday: Lent Begins Καθολικός διάκονος - March 1, 2017 ... provisional, temporary, and fleeting. Understood in this way, Lent takes on an eschatological dimension. Our intensified practice of the spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting, and alms-giving are an invitation to make God's reign a present reality as we await its final fulfillment. While Lent has everything to do with penance, it has nothing to do with punishment. Penance starts inward and moves outward. Punishment comes from outside of us, causes fear and usually resentment. In an article ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/03/ash-wednesday-lent-begins.html

Ash Wednesday: Ancient Tradition Still Thrives in Modern Times CLERICAL WHISPERS - February 28, 2017 ... obligation and ashes do not have to be distributed during a Mass. Almost half of adult Catholics, 45 percent, typically receive ashes — made from the burned and blessed palms of the previous year's Palm Sunday — at Ash Wednesday services, according to the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University. Parish priests say they get more people at church that day than almost any other — excluding Christmas and Easter ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/ash-wednesday-ancient-tradition-still.html
