Teaching the Faith: Contributions From Thomas Aquinas INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - July 16, 2014 ... Those who hear, and cling to the merciful speech of God, in faith, are the ones who attain this saving knowledge. "But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?" – Luke 18:8 This is a striking, and relevant, question. It has become somewhat common to note the inadequate retention rates of many RCIA and sacramental catechesis programs in parishes. Recent converts cycle in and out of programs, seemingly designed to teach the faith, only to find at the end of ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/07/teaching-the-faith-contributions-from-thomas-aquinas.html

But this passage is less about the sins of leadership. Let the parents, role models, and even the volunteers among us breathe easier–just a little. James suggests that everybody sins with the tongue. Is the tongue an organ of original sin? Let's read a bit more. And pardon the exclusive language … If anyone does not fall short in ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/07/15/reconciliation-lectionary-james-31-12/

More Outrage Porn From Right-Wing Obama-Haters THE IMPRACTICAL CATHOLIC - June 21, 2014 Perhaps you've seen this short video clip flying around the Internet. The version posted here was uploaded to YouTube by "Dual Gamma"; I originally ran across it on Facebook as a share from "The New Republic of Texas". Here it is: This is a blatantly dishonest piece of agitprop. It takes a couple of key phrases out of the context of Obama's full speech and makes him appear to say something that, on his dumbest, most incompetent day, he would still never say ...http://impracticalcatholic.blogspot.com/2014/06/more-outrage-porn-from-right-wing-obama.html

Acton U 2014: Day 2 FR. Z'S BLOG - June 19, 2014 ... Mass in the Extraordinary Form for the Feast of Corpus Christi. We considered for a moment having a short Eucharistic Procession out the door, down the hall, and through the Novus Ordo Mass, which was going on at the same time. Instead of doing that, I compromised with slightly longer elevations. At breakfast, I sat with a couple seminarians, one from Michigan and one from Kansas, and two nice young ladies who are students at Franciscan University in Steubenville. I had a chat ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/NH3Ghh4MVPU/

God Is a Four Letter Word CREATIVE MINORITY REPORT - June 17, 2014 ... is being treated like a four letter word. Worse probably. I'd bet you could probably get away with dropping the F-bomb in a graduation speech more easily than you could mentioning God. Todd Starnes reports this calamity of political correctness surrounding high school senior Brooks Hamby's attempt to mention the role faith plays in his life. But the Brawley Union School District in Brawley, Calif., said the references to Jesus and prayer in Brooks' graduation ...http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2014/06/god-is-four-letter-word.html

Catholic Evangelization TWO CATHOLIC MEN AND A BLOG - June 9, 2014 ... that Catholic evangelizers proclaim a "Eucharistic Christ." In short, the simplest street corner or coffee table evangelism to bring a person to Christ is in four parts: God loves us We have sinned Christ has died and risen to save us We have to respond with faith That may be where evangelism in practice ends. In Protestant thought, that person is "saved" and cannot be un-saved. Catholic evangelism, in order to be Eucharistic, must go further. How? This kind of evangelism is ...http://2catholicmen.blogspot.com/2014/06/catholic-evangelization.html

The Trouble With Being a Hobbit SERVANT AND STEWARD - May 30, 2014 ... farewell addresses and toasts because they tend to be rather stiff and the speaking usually drones on and on - and then on some again - usually saying nothing and very little of interest to any but a few. To my mind, a toast should be witty, memorable, and - above all - brief (which is likely what will most make it memorable). As Bilbo Baggins began his farewell speech at that long-expected party, the hobbits "shouted, and they hammered joyously on the tables. Bilbo was doing ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/xuy1XqfWLrY/the-trouble-with-being-hobbit.html

Must Watch Video of Denzel Washington Discussing Prayer, Faith, and Achieving Goals CREATIVE MINORITY REPORT - May 29, 2014 Actor Denzel Washington delivered a beautiful speech to a group of young actors on the importance of prayer, faith and the importance of goals.

The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord let his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace. Amen."

Freud says we write for three basic reasons: desire for fame, money, and the love of women. One of the greatest enemies of happiness, of enjoying life, is the intrusion of loneliness. When you're most alone is in nausea; when you're throwing up you are alone on the face of this earth. The moment of orgasm is very lonely too—a little island in the middle of nowhere. There are a lot of paradoxes involved. When you're working very ...http://poncer.blogspot.com/2014/05/shelby-foote-circa-1997.html

It is nonetheless the case that human dignity, human freedom, and human rights are best held firm, made intellectually viable and given vitality and freshness from a lively faith in a Creator God who is the author of life, and who has endowed human life in particular with a divine significance, vocation, and destiny.

"Fathers Matter"? Do We Really Believe That? SCELATA - May 12, 2014 ... we pretend the opposite is true. The disappearance of fathers is now nearly the norm. Almost one in four American children lives in a household without their biological dads. For brown kids, that number stands at about 28 percent. For black kids, it's a little better than half. Mass incarceration and the War on Drugs have certainly played a role in this. But just as surely, a role is also played by the new social more which says it's OK for a man or a woman to be feckless, for him to wander ...http://scelata.blogspot.com/2014/05/fathers-matter-do-we-really-beleive-that.html

John Kerry and the Dismissal of Legacy SUNLIT UPLANDS - May 11, 2014 ... to chunk the heritage of the past enshrined in 2,000-year old documents (like the Bible). In a speech to the American embassy staff in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Kerry seemed to be fretting about the "different crosscurrents of modernity" stirring across Africa. In his defense, there are many spiritual and cultural "crosscurrents" that do indeed create a deadly tempest. But Kerry's remarks can too easily be generalized to encompass the age-old legacies that make freedom possible ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/SunlitUplands/~3/TUyYZ6BWCAM/john-kerry-and-dismissal-of-legacy.html

This was the method of St. Thèrése of Lisieux, who said, "I tell God what I want quite simply, without any splendid turn of phrase, and somehow He always manages to understand me." Echoing this approach, Pope John XXIII (who will be officially canonized next month on April 27) said, "Praying is the rising of the mind to God. We must always remember this. The actual words matter less." If, like me, you're older ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/05/praying-powerfully-and-simply.html
