Mindful of Our Deceased Loved Ones ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - October 30, 2014 ... poor souls, we write the names of deceased loved ones in a book. This year there is a new twist. Our pastor invited us to bring pictures of our departed relatives and place them on the window sills of the church. The pictures will surround us, reminding us that these people are with us celebrating the Eucharist. They are still present and loving us, although they are invisible. They exist in another dimension, one that we too will be slipping ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/10/mindful-of-our-deceased-loved-ones.html
Sister Joan of Arc Rodrigues Reflection SISTERS OF THE HOLY FAMILY - October 28, 2014 ... proud of her service in the Navy. And she was a shameless fan of Xena the Princess Warrior (or Warrior Princess, I could never remember which); she had photos and posters and dvds—every dvd Xena ever made, I think — and even a framed autographed picture of Lucy Lawless, the show's star. That photo has a prime place in the display out in the lobby. In the end, it may be that we don't even know the deeper substance of a person's life because we get so caught up in the outer ...http://blog.holyfamilysisters.org/2014/10/28/sister-joan-of-arc-rodrigues-reflection/
The Church Triumphant: Spotlight on St. Vincent De Paul LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - September 25, 2014 ... Guardian Angels is shortly thereafter, Oct. 2nd, fyi. It's just a lovely part of Ordinary Time. And I'm going to be discussing St. Vincent de Paul, whose feast is Saturday, Sept. 27th. Let's get started! St. Vincent was born in the late sixteenth century into a humble peasant family in France. His family was able to secure part of his education with local Franciscan friars because they wanted to encourage his intellectual pursuits. As a teenager, he began studies for the priesthood, and was ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-church-triumphant-spotlight-on-st.html
7 Quick Takes; The Before Caffeine Edition NOTLUKEWARM - September 19, 2014 ... people who are struggling to figure out this whole faith life. It's the people who lie to me. Every year I hear new stories as to why they didn't register last year for year one of the two year program or why they don't come to Mass or how they never get information. How do I know they are lying? I'm a mom. I've worked in ministry for over thirty years. I understand it's hard to admit you made a mistake, but please don't blame me. We can't solve the problem by lying and blaming, 3. What is it ...http://notlukewarm.blogspot.com/2014/09/7-quick-takes-before-caffeine-edition.html
Book Review: Sacred Fire: Practicing Devotion to the Heart of Jesus THIS THAT AND THE OTHER THING - August 11, 2014 ... Foundations and the Promises of the Sacred Heart. Those looking to practice devotion to the Sacred Heart will find a lot of possibilities. I'd like to thank the author, Philip Michael Bulman, for sending me a review copy of the book. I'm not expert enough in theology, scripture etc. to determine whether the book comports with Catholic doctrine. I have not been able to find any information about the publisher (Laudate Press) and it looks like a self-published book. There is a substantial ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/ngaR/~3/UGOeHQGSqHk/book-review-sacred-fire-practicing.html
The Catholic Nook: Chaplet of St. Dominic Savio LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - July 31, 2014 ... really relates to his story, and I think that it's an excellent example for young boys. I thought that if I made him this chaplet, we could pray it together at night before he went to bed. It was tougher with no photograph, but I managed and some image searches online seem to indicate that I did it correctly. For this chaplet, what we have is a crucifix and center, 3 white beads and 14 blue beads. The white beads represent the Trinity, while the blue beads represent the 14 years of St. ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-catholic-nook-chaplet-of-st-dominic.html
How Parents Approach Mass With Little Ones Can Begin to Plant the Seeds of Faith ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - July 29, 2014 All pictures in this post are from the book Little Acts of Grace by Rosemarie Gortler and Donna Piscitelli. Illustrations are drawn by Mimi Sternhagen. I highly recommend this book for Catholic parents who want to teach their children about many aspects of the faith and their meaning. Let's face it, it's not always easy to attend Mass with children. Sometimes you leave feeling more like you were engaged in battle than having spent an hour in the highest form of prayer in ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/07/how-parents-approach-mass-with-little.html
