Review of "Seven Saints for Seven Virtues" CAUSE OF OUR JOY - October 20, 2014 ... charity, so is my mother, therefore, she might be a saint". I know I didn't think that way about holy people whom I came across in my childhood; for me, saints were far off, ethereal beings who never even considered sinning. I think many Catholics were under that misapprehension, thanks to over zealous authors of saints' biographies and lack of role models in today's darkening world. That's why this book is so important to Catholic spirituality. By describing how central growth in ...http://cause-of-our-joy.blogspot.com/2014/10/review-of-seven-saints-for-seven-virtues.html

Book Review: Seven Saints for Seven Virtues SPIRITUAL WOMAN - October 19, 2014 ... Heimann Cincinnati: Servant Books, 2014 In our modern world, it can be extremely challenging to live a virtuous life. "The concept of virtue is often considered outdated and old-fashioned, but for Catholics, becoming virtuous is essential for eternal salvation." What, then, can we do? Thankfully, we have saints we can look to as role models in virtue as we journey through the difficulties of life. Put simply, "virtue is the pursuit of good and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/SPBgN/~3/3Fu3HS8yfnk/book-review-seven-saints-for-seven.html

Ways to Escape From Apathy DA MIHI ANIMAS - October 16, 2014 ... times it seems we have lost our way and forgotten or ignored the teachings of the Church. Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia offers this insight which cuts to the heart of the matter in his excellent book, Render Unto Caesar (p.197): "What needs to be done by Catholics today for their country? The answer is: Don't lie. If we say we're Catholic, we need to prove it. America's public life needs people willing to stand alone, without apologies, for the truth of the Catholic faith and the ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/10/ways-to-escape-from-apathy.html

Love of the Good Is Also Bad THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - October 15, 2014 ... because you are this kind of person . You have no doubt been on the receiving end of such pigeon-holing. That's denigrating. But we do it, believing it's wisdom and therefore beneficial. How self-deceived we are! No, we do it to take someone down a peg. I love adoration. I love that I can go to a special spiritual place and spend some time alone. Yes, I like being alone. I am an introvert. I like to read spiritual books. I like to learn. I like to think. These are pleasures for me. Does that ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-of-good-is-also-bad.html

The Cognitive Dissonance of Tolerance AGGIE CATHOLICS - October 15, 2014 ... you are intolerant. we should "live and let live". Of course, this kind of idea false apart quickly when we oppose someone's views. Other say that tolerance is "open-mindedness". The problem is that most who say they are "open-minded" have very set beliefs about a lot of things and when you disagree with them, their minds seem to close very quickly. Once again, GK Chesterton said it best: "Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to ...http://marysaggies.blogspot.com/2013/12/the-cognitive-dissonance-of-tolerance.html

'Where Everyone Is Invited to Bring Everything We Have, Best and Worst' (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - October 12, 2014 ... not just part. The Eucharist is sharing in the sacrifice – and of course we want that. It's right to want that. If only I hungered more for the Eucharist than I do! But there is another sharing in the sacrifice, equally tremendously* powerful. And that has to do not with what we get, but what we bring. We've all heard people say, "I didn't get anything out of Mass." Maybe the homily was boring, or you didn't like the music. Perhaps someone distracted you. And sometimes, when people ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2014/10/where-everyone-is-invited-to-bring.html

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi - An Example for the Synod on the Family KNIGHT OF THE WHITE CROSS - October 10, 2014 ... thing I haven't seen or heard coming from the Synod on the Family taking place in Rome is for those in troubled marriages or families to look to the examples of the saints who found holiness in just those circumstances. Lots of talk about "new methods" very little about the tried and true. In fact for the past 50 years all we have done is try to find new ways of communicating the Faith with a secular world that doesn't care or want to hear what we have to say. It reminds me of ...http://tuitiofidei.blogspot.com/2014/10/blessed-anna-maria-taigi-example-for.html

Looking in the Mirror: 26.A HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - September 28, 2014 ... people who preach and profess what they don't practice, sanctimonious people who put piety ahead of virtue. And then there are the folks who practice but don't profess, people who show goodness while shunning religious observance. That second class, the "anonymous Christians," as someone called them, are much more pleasing to God than the religious phonies. But neither of these two groups of people is anything like perfect. Again the important point is that the best people are ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2014/09/looking-in-mirror-26a.html

Reverence THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - September 22, 2014 In his Modern Catholic Dictionary , Fr. John Hardon defines reverence as "The virtue that inclines a person to show honor and respect for persons who possess some dignity." He identifies four types of reverence: 1. toward parents; 2. toward civil authorities; 3. toward the Pope, bishops, priests, and others who serve the Church; and 4. toward "any person, place, or object related to God." The highest reverence, of course, that goes beyond all others is the reverence we owe ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2014/09/reverence.html

The Feast of Mary's Assumption: A Time to REFOCUS FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - August 15, 2014 ... that the Feast of the Assumption focuses us on (or rather refocuses us on), namely, that the goal of this life is heaven! Mary has already reached the goal. We celebrate that fact at this Mass. As she now is, so all those men and women who die in the state of grace will someday be. For us, however, the sequence of events will be a little different. That's important to mention. Our Blessed Mother already has her glorified body in the kingdom of her divine Son. Those of us who die in the state ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-feast-of-marys-assumption-time-to.html

This person would then be the solid example that listening to the soul and following its challenging path is not a feeble choice, but a stalwart one. And if there are real-life stories about how he or she when faced with temptations of the flesh chose the harder route of denying the self (and suffered even further as a result of the choice for God) that led to a greater peace and silent joy, they would be great sources of encouragement to those who choose to live out their faith ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-great-challenge-in-accepting-hard.html
