Acceptance I OF THE NEEDLE - January 22, 2015 ... proposal for marriage would be an understatement. Regardless, similar to Juanita's acceptance, this acceptance starts what could be a four-year engagement. God willing, the engagement would culminate in a Sacrament similar to the Sacrament of Marriage, that being the Sacrament of Holy Orders - Ordination as a Permanent Deacon. While in the end I alone (in a manner of speaking) would receive this Sacrament, because of the magnitude of this commitment, the engagement - formation program - will ...http://www.ioftheneedle.com/2013/07/acceptance.html
Thursday, January 15, 2014 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - January 14, 2015 Thursday of the First Week in Ordinary Time (Hebrews 3:7-14; Mark 1:40-45) A retired preacher of boys' retreat was asked why he gave up the practice. He answered that the fire and brimstone that he used to scare the boys no longer had a positive effect. He said that once the boys were visibly shaken by exaggerated descriptions of eternal punishment, but they had come to dismiss the possibility. Perhaps the author of the Letter to the Hebrews is aware of ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2015/01/thursday-january-15-2014.html

How I Found My Vocation: By a Traditional Seminarian HOLY VOCATIONS - December 8, 2014 ... already visited earlier that year and I got a letter back a month later that summer saying that I was accepted for the coming fall semester of that year. Even before receiving the letter, I began to have many doubts about the seminary I had chosen and I began thinking of dropping this discernment of a priestly vocation all together. After awhile I became very anxious and miserable. Thankfully, a good traditional priest encouraged me to just go and to trust in ...http://holyvocations.blogspot.com/2014/12/how-i-found-my-vocation-by-traditional.html
Letter From a Mad Man CREATIVE MINORITY REPORT - October 22, 2014 What to say about this. This is a type written letter that was mailed to my home. Perhaps I should have had it tested for Anthrax. It is from an Octogenarian of the Mad Men generation, which helps explain the current mess. Read it and weep. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Dear Mr. Archbold: This is surely presumptuous of me, to write you at home. But I couldn't find any mailing address for the Creative Minority Report website. Nearing 84, I write hundreds ...http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2014/10/letter-from-mad-man.html
Reflections on Fr. Benedict Groeschel DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - October 8, 2014 ... there may be short. Bennie died on the eve of the feast of St. Francis. I think that is a day he would have chosen to die, a time when his and other's thoughts would turn to his role model, yet not on the saint's feast day itself, to take away any focus from the great saint's honor. St. Francis was said to be a happy beggar. I think that described Bennie, also. He loved the poor, and said that in many ways they were closer to God than he. But I don't know if I would agree. I loved the many ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflections-on-fr-benedict-groeschel.html
