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. To ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/lk6JekvJLDY/the-origins-of-modern-materialism

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

What Is to Be Done? COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - January 26, 2016 ... long way to travel. But I am also part of a larger whole, the Church, and my own imperfections do not let me off from making a contribution there. However, if my analysis of the problems is correct, and that it is primarily a spiritual battle in which we are engaged, that also must inform our response. According to St Augustine (I understand - I am not a great scholar and get most of my knowledge second or third hand - in this case, if I recall correctly, from Frank Sheed) the faculties of the ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2016/01/what-is-to-be-done.html

Be Glad You Didn't Win the Lotto CRISIS MAGAZINE - January 20, 2016 ... problem. But especially today it is easy to miss or forget problems associated with money. Unless we have a rare level of virtue we are prone to the magnetic pull of precious metals. Money has a uniquely powerful hold on our imagination and desires. When we hear about a huge jackpot, our mouth starts to water. What if I buy the winning ticket…? The hundred-dollar bingo jackpot at a Wednesday night church fundraiser is not the issue. We do not make plans for how we will ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/iWcfkyRt9PU/be-glad-you-didnt-win-the-lotto

Lives Transformed  VENERABLE MATT TALBOT RESOURCE CENTER - January 14, 2016 ... interesting passing moment unless it impacts one's life. While this may not always be a dramatic turn, there are those examples of men and women whose lives have been genuinely transformed, even to the point of being unrecognizable from what it was before." To illustrate his point Bob presents five biographical sketches of such transformation, including that of Matt Talbot, which begins, "It would have been almost a miracle had Matt Talbot avoided becoming an alcoholic." See ...http://venerablematttalbotresourcecenter.blogspot.com/2016/01/lives-transformed.html

Third Sunday of Advent PRINTED AS PREACHED - December 14, 2015 ... between light and darkness, between goodness and evil, even when we see examples of humanity at its worst, God stills considers our world worth saving, fighting for, and even dying for. To have faith in God does not mean we understand why God will save us. But it does mean that we believe firmly that he will. The joy that the Church reflects today is not an emotional excitement. It is a joy that comes with the knowledge that our God, not only keeps his promises, but that he is ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2015/12/third-sunday-of-advent.html

Saint Paul, Little Women, and Books That Honor Children CRISIS MAGAZINE - December 14, 2015 ... intelligence and natural inclination toward the good, children will feel the respect that those authors have for their capable minds. It is, though, entirely possible for a story to include bickering and name-calling in a tasteful way. In Little Women , Amy burns Jo's precious book, and Jo, deeply angry, calls her a "wicked, wicked girl" and says she will never forgive her. Afterward, though, Jo is consumed with remorse, and her mother tells her that she, too, struggled with anger.

Ways to Escape From Apathy DA MIHI ANIMAS - November 17, 2015 ... 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/2015/11/ways-to-escape-from-apathy.html

How to Keep From Being a Cult MONASTERY OF THE HOLY CROSS - October 31, 2015 ... unpack the last page of Alasdair MacIntyre's important book After Virtue . He's linked to me again (thank you!), and so I need to put out some more product. Years ago, I resisted reading MacIntyre, mostly because I didn't have a lot of confidence in cultural conservatives to instigate a genuine moral reform of society, much as I felt that we needed it. And I figured that MacIntyre's book was part of the conservative virtue brigade, a la William Bennett (it's ...http://chicagomonk.org/about-us/the-priors-blog/how-to-keep-from-being-a-cult/

Elsewhere, the same relatio makes this observation in regard to the Church's teaching on contraception: "On the question of responsible parenthood, the discussion focused on the need for a pastoral approach which both promotes the teaching of Humanae Vitae and deals with the reality of people's lives, providing ongoing formation of conscience which looks to a harmony between ...http://unamsanctamcatholicam.blogspot.com/2015/10/synod-ii-wrap-up.html

Some Restless Thoughts on Hope Καθολικός διάκονος - October 24, 2015 ... charity. I think there is an interesting correlation between the theological virtue of hope and the spiritual discipline of fasting, just as I think there is a correlation between prayer and faith as well as between alms-giving and charity. At least for me, hope remains elusive and so I am always looking for better and deeper ways of understanding it. I am about to finish Michael Zantovsky's biography of Václav Havel: Havel: A Life . It is a book I highly recommend. After ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/10/some-restless-thoughts-on-hope.html

Can Catholics Learn Today From the Continent Marriage of Joseph and Mary? NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - October 19, 2015 ... subsists between the Bridegroom Christ and His bridal Church — may become for each other more transparent signs of the ineffable intimacy awaiting them in their final beatific destiny, an intimacy with God and with one another in Him that is more lofty and profound than any earthly communion they might enjoy. It would be, then, the renunciation and offering up of a way of life that is rooted in the sanctified and sanctifying but necessarily transitory and imperfect communion of man and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/8b5HqnTkEMc/can-catholics-learn-today-from.html
