Option as well as his recognition for what it is, in the words of his theologian friend Stanley Hauerwas, "some kind of withdrawal strategy." Everybody using common English parlance recognizes two things: one, the intention of Alasdair MacIntyre's quip in After Virtue was not a fugit mundi and two, Rod Dreher's Benedict Option—if it is anything more than hashtag Christianity or fodder for a grad school mint julep fueled bull session —is most definitely a flight ...http://contrapauli.blogspot.com/2016/05/what-could-possibly-explain-alasdair.html

It Is Hope That Awakens the Amazement of God CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 5, 2016 ... because he, the centurion, doesn't think himself worthy enough. Just give the order, in other words, and it will happen. On hearing this, we are told, "he [Jesus] was amazed and said to those following him, 'Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith'" (Mt 8:10). The other time, which reveals the strongest possible contrast to the faith shown by the centurion, is when Jesus finds himself in Nazareth, and there is confronted by an appalling absence of faith. "He was amazed ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/8zmeK-a5ZQI/it-is-hope-that-awakens-the-amazement-of-god

She had taken LSD that night, and also told the university about an earlier sexual encounter with the same student that she said had been coerced. Four months after reporting the assault, she received a letter from the associate dean of students.

On Trump & Clinton, Scribes & Pharisees, and the Evolution of Mankind [No, Not the Wrestler.] THECHURCHMILITANT - March 14, 2016 ... rendered meaningless by the tremendous examples of humanity at the top of the presidential polls, Don'tnald Trumpsky and Hitlery Rodham Schicklegruber. You know the story of the woman caught in the act of adultery, right? "Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone." Well, Trumpsky recently said he's never done anything he needed to be forgiven for and Ol' Hit said she's never ever ever lied in her whole long life! How lucky we are! What joy abounds! We are so ...http://thechurchmilitant.blogspot.com/2016/03/on-trump-clinton-scribes-pharisees-and.html

PROCLAIMING THE TRUTH IN LO - March 13, 2016 ... due to them - reward to the innocent and those who grow in virtue, punishment to the guilty and to every person all that is necessary for human flourishing. Mercy means generous compassion, which, when appropriate, tempers the strict requirements of justice. Jesus is just. He recognizes that the woman caught in adultery is a notorious and, thus far, unrepentant sinner. She is deserving of the punishment according to the law of Moses. Jesus is merciful. He stoops down to be ...http://proclaimthetruthinlove.blogspot.com/2016/03/fifth-sunday-of-lent-harmony-of-justice.html

BE RECONCILED TO GOD - Repentance!! GLORIA OLIVAE - March 7, 2016 ... descended to today. It is possible to rise up from the unnatural to the natural even by pure human means, like through psychotherapy. But it is impossible to rise up from the unnatural and natural level to the supernatural level. Here the grace of God is needed because the virtue of Penance which is the basis of 'Life of Repentance,' which forgives our past sins is in the supernatural level. It needs the grace of God. And because the human race have mostly descended to the ...http://odondecastro.blogspot.com/2016_03_01_archive.html#4265885973858136547

Brain Science COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - February 14, 2016 ... and sexual preferences. Whilst there may well be both genetic and environmental factors that incline an individual one way or another, there is no doubt that consistently thinking and behaving in whatever way one does is the way in which one constructs such an identity. And as with the other examples, that will then feel entirely natural. Which is why I believe, if one accepts the evidence that aberrant sexual identities lead to poor outcomes in terms of health and happiness ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2016/02/brain-science.html

The Origins of Modern Materialism CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 5, 2016 ... quantifiable? These vital matters of mind, ordinate passion, and life itself, these affairs of the Pascalian heart, will not yield to quantification. May I suggest that they are, nonetheless, rather important? Quality and quantity bear neither necessary nor universal relation to each other. Is bigger better? Sometimes; is smaller better? Sometimes; but only sometimes. Big is fine for earth-moving equipment, but no so much for cell-phones. No general inference from coincidence is possible.

Feast of the Presentation MOUNT CARMEL - February 2, 2016 ... consecration, the prophecy made by Simeon and the love of the prophetess Anna, all demonstrate to us how holy the temple or Church is. In our Catholic Churches is present, day and night, the Son of God, Lord of Heaven and earth, who chose to remain in that little piece of bread we call the Eucharist so that He can be with us always. And yet, for one reason or other, we take it for granted. We need to recapture the reverence and awe we once had for the House of God. Everyone of us can cite ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MountCarmel/~3/FOd5HTapkG4/feast-of-presentation.html

Disposed Towards Mercy LIVING SACRIFICE - January 31, 2016 ... Nazareth, Jesus Himself was speaking to us. He is in the tabernacle here, now. He will be on the altar, really and truly present for us and with us. He animates our souls this morning and awakens them for faith. How are we able to respond with the desire to follow Him more closely, to live our lives entirely for Him? The theological virtue of HOPE likewise disposes our hearts towards God, making them more prepared to share in His divine life. Hope is not some vague feeling ...http://fathermahars.blogspot.com/2016/02/disposed-towards-mercy_1.html
