"natural" in the relevant sense (e.g. new breeds of dog, water synthesized in a lab) and there are things that are not man-made but rather the result of natural processes that are nevertheless not "natural" in the relevant sense but have only an accidental rather than substantial form (e.g. a random pile of stones or dirt, qua pile, that has formed at the bottom of a hill). The usual cases of things with merely accidental forms are man-made, though, so that we tend (wrongly) to regard the ...http://edwardfeser.blogspot.com/2014/04/welcome-to-machine.html

A Lenten Reflection on Humility EYESONHEAVEN - April 1, 2014 This is a great C.S. Lewis quote to think about this time of year. Humility is an intriguing topic – an elusive virtue that we all wish we had and very few of us actually have. I could list a gazillion moments when I WISH I had humility; yet it's very hard to come by. I personally find humility to be one of the hardest virtues to wrap my head around. Maybe it's because I'm a fairly action-minded person (and I don't think I'm the only one). When I think of growing in ...http://eyesonheaven.net/2014/04/01/a-lenten-reflection-on-humility/

That day we shall see flower not only the reform of personal morals, but also the reform of social and national life' (Pope Benedict XV)." "These are words to meditate on. They reveal to us the secret of the intercession and the influence of St. Joseph. He works together with Mary and Jesus. He has his very own powerful influence, but he is likewise the mediator of the incomparable flow of graces which emanate from Mary his spouse, and of the graces which flow from the source of ...http://dignareme.blogspot.com/2014/03/st-joseph-model-of-sanctity-in-family.html

Sermon for Reminiscere Sunday SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - March 19, 2014 ... perhaps we had had the illusion that we were free. In such cases instead of turning our gaze away, it is necessary to have the courage to recognize these faults and confess them humbly and frankly. God is truth and Mercy. He knows everything of what is happening in our souls, our weakness and our sinfulness. And in His Mercy He knows also how to come to help us and cure us. And this forgiveness of sin is done through the sacrament of Confession. We must receive the sacrament of Penance because ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2014/03/sermon-for-reminiscere-sunday.html

The Corresponding Virtue: Prudence Excerpts from Sheen's February 25, 1940 address: [T]hough men failed in this crisis [the Lord's Passion], there is no instance of a single woman failing. In the four trials the voice heard in His defense was that of a woman, Claudia Procul the wife of Pontius Pilate, warning her husband not to do anything unjust to that just man….

La Bella Vita in Roma! BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - March 15, 2014 ... This is for everyone celebrating Saint Patrick's Day this coming week. Here's Patrick, reigning over the "Ireland Chapel" (there were several chapels in the church, each dedicated to a different country. Canada had one; we didn't). Please note that Saint Patrick is a bishop -- not a tipsy leprechaun. And this is Saint Remigius baptising Clovis, in the French Chapel: So, moving on down the road, I came to a large piazza, named for Camillo Cavour, one of the leaders in the drive to unite Italy. ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2014/03/la-bella-vita-in-roma.html

It all started harmlessly enough. The sister asked her brother if he could give her a ride to an event. He was having a bad day and, in a fit of irritation, scolded her for how her children were 'so irresponsible' not to have provided for her conveniences that she had to trouble him.

Truthfulness 1 – Fr. Romano Guardini PAYING ATTENTION TO THE SKY - February 26, 2014 ... an answer. [Think of the Nazi SS asking "Are you harboring a Jew?] We must also note that in regard to truthfulness in daily life, it makes a difference if one possesses interior certainty in regard to the various situations, and also if one is a master of the language and quick to define and distinguish. This is a matter of ethical culture with which education should deal. Many a lie arises from shyness and embarrassment, and also from insufficient mastery of the language. Special problems ...http://payingattentiontothesky.com/2014/02/27/truthfulness-1-fr-romano-guardini/

Self pity - an aspect of self love. Today I'm beginning to examine these vices in preparation for Lent ... "St Augustine, with extraordinary perceptiveness, described the nature of sin as follows: 'self-love to the point of contempt for God'.

(To hear more on the life of St Anthony of the Desert, check out our new Audiobook on his struggles with demons!)

As to Our Lady, what need had she to be purified? She neither was nor could be blemished, having received so excellent a grace from the time of her Conception that the cherubim's and seraphim's is in no way comparable to it. For if indeed God prevented them with His grace from their creation to forestall their falling into sin, nevertheless they were not confirmed in grace from that moment in such a way ...http://tomperna.org/2014/02/03/mondays-with-mary-saint-francis-de-sales-on-the-purification-of-the-blessed-virgin-mary/

Feast of the Presentation MOUNT CARMEL - February 1, 2014 ... purification, Jesus' 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. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MountCarmel/~3/FOd5HTapkG4/feast-of-presentation.html

Other Fraternities might have a different prayer or procedure; this is how our local group celebrates this ritual each year.

The (in)tolerance of Jesus SERVANT AND STEWARD - January 30, 2014 ... claim of the commenter on the tolerance of Jesus, I suggested several passages of the Gospel, in which Jesus speaks, that refute the commenter's claim of who he is. A tolerant man, I suggested, does not go about calling out, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matthew 4:17). To call people to repentance is at the same time an implicit condemnation of sinful actions; if no sins have been committed, there is nothing of which to repent. A tolerant man does not make judgments on ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/y28OpgPt5tE/the-intolerance-of-jesus.html

People will not listen to them. They will ignore and criticize their teachings. But, as God is patient with people he love, so should they be, so should we be—fishermen of 2014. Perseverance, which is related to the virtue of hope, is also important to any human endeavor. Never quit in your work, Jesus must have told them.

Clement 1 on Faith HEART FOR GOD - January 18, 2014 ... Abraham: "Your descendants shall be as the stars of heaven." It is obvious, therefore, that none of these owed their honour and exaltation to themselves, or to their own labours, or to their deeds of virtue. No; they owed everything to God's will. So likewise with us, who by his will are called in Christ Jesus. We are not justified by our wisdom, intelligence, piety, or by any action of ours, however holy, but by faith, the one means by which God has justified men from the ...http://heartforgodltd.blogspot.com/2014/01/from-letter-to-corinthians-by-saint.html
