Steubenville 2015 DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - July 27, 2015 ... University in Steubenville and The Defending the Faith Conference. I expected to be there by 2PM, in time to hear the first talk by Fr. Michael Gaitley --- I've reviewed some of his books here; they are very inspiring, and I expected his talk would be too. But the best laid plans of mice and men …. The crash on I80 was near Cleveland, blocking the entire expressway, and everyone sat unmoving in the hot sun for well over an hour. I read the Wall Street Journal, and began ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2015/07/steubenville-2015.html
Hapgood Gets Mention at Episcopalian Gathering BYZANTINE, TEXAS - July 8, 2015 ... Anglican-Orthodox committee in the UK, but it has a very different character than our talks with the Catholics and Oriental Orthodox. I just don't see there ever being a reunion with them. Still, it's good to talk. A number of international bishops from smaller Anglican provinces are in attendance at the Episcopal Church's triennial General Convention meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah, with a handful of ecumenical guests from other churches. None of the Anglican Communion's larger provinces are ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2015/07/hapgood-gets-mention-at-episcopalian.html
2015 Franciscan Federation Conference FRANCISCAN LIFE - June 30, 2015 Each year I usually write an article about the Franciscan Federation conference, using as my guide the schedule posted on the federation's website. This year, however, I had the privilege of being present for the entire conference in Indianapolis. We arrived at the hotel Friday afternoon and after checking in, looked for a place to get some lunch. What started out with a small group gradually grew to a bit of a reunion as more of our sisters found their ...http://franciscanlife.blogspot.com/2015/06/2015-franciscan-federation-conference.html
Dionysius Alive and Well: On Hierarchical Incensation NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - June 15, 2015 At the Solemn Vespers held on the opening day of the Sacra Liturgia conference , June 1, 2015, I witnessed a memorable sign of the true nature of the Church and of the cosmos: the elaborate incensation during the Magnificat. I have seen incense used at Vespers before, but never so elaborately, or, one might say, to such a Baroque extent (with "Baroque" as an altogether laudatory appellation). After all, incensing, like every sign used in worship, must be ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/wDw_vdXF8wg/dionysius-alive-and-well-on.html
Religious Liberty THE ONE TRUE FAITH - June 12, 2015 ... pilgrims came here for religious freedom. What happened after that is well, human concupiscence. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is planning a Fortnight for Freedom. On June 21 (I'll remind you.) we are invited to pray a fortnight until July 4th, for religious freedom in our country. There are suggestions for the fortnight, also. Fortnight Spotlight...
