There's the Door THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - June 15, 2016 ... were not good students. They talked continuously, fooled around, etc. I threatened, etc., and nothing seemed to work for long, and so I finally kicked the three worst out of the program. I told them they could come back if they wrote me an apology letter, signed by them and by their parents. Wow, Colin, you're just like the guy from the movie Lean on Me - the no-nonsense black principal who turned that bad inner-city school around. Yes, that's exactly what happened... ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2015/10/theres-door.html

Homily G-MANS JOURNEY - June 5, 2016 ... explaining his relationship to the mother Church of Jerusalem. Paul rejected their accusation that he was watering down the Gospel to win many converts, that he was trying to please men. Paul explained that his conversion had freed him from the "yoke of slavery," which was the Mosaic Law that emphasized human achievement. It is interesting to hear that even 2,000 years ago, some were persecuted and accused of watering down the truth. This is obvious today by the number of religions in the ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2016/06/homily.html
The Triumph of Teresian Trust CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 27, 2016 ... so confident was she of God's answering response (this helpless little bird without wings, filled with the most childlike expectancy that he would swoop right down and gather her up), that she disdained to wear the veil Moses himself put on to hide his face before God. There was no longer any need for it, she insisted, now that God had fully shown himself to us in the face of Jesus.

Preaching Perhaps! Ordination Not Likely. IN PRINCIPIO ERAT VERBUM - March 3, 2016 The recent headline regarding the potential of permitting women to preach in the Catholic Church during the Liturgy of the Eucharist raises quite a few eyebrows, if not a few theological considerations. Preaching at the Liturgy of the Word has been reserved to deacons, priests and bishops for almost eight hundred years. The primary reason for the restriction has nothing to do with misogynistic tendencies of the Catholic Church, it concerns the intrinsic ...http://verbumcarofactumest.blogspot.com/2016/03/preaching-perhaps-ordination-not-likely.html
