The second conclusion is that we need small group faith studies—groups of five or six where we can share and deepen our faith. You'll hear lots more about this as our parish plan for evangelization—funded entirely by Project Advance 2017—moves forward in the months to come. Today, let's not focus on the future but on the present. I'd like to ask you a really simple question: why are you at Mass today? It's a personal question, and ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2017/06/life-after-alpha-corpus-christi-2017.html

Because Ishmael had royal blood flowing through his veins, he refused to accept Jeremiah's prophecies. Spiritually blind, he saw the fall of Judah from a temporal perspective. He didn't believe that Judeans were being banished from their land as punishment for their sins. He saw Gedaliah as an opportunist who was using Nebuchadnezzar to usurp Judah's throne, a throne that belonged to the royal ...http://messianicmystery.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-shadow-of-egypt.html

So Is It Ethical to Have Many Children? CREATIVE MINORITY REPORT - June 6, 2017 ... unselfish people, nice people with good values, want to have kids, want to build things that look roughly like traditional families, and our informal social structures are set up around that assumption. It's almost a third rail of politics. TR: In a recent paper with my colleagues Jake Earl and Colin Hickey, we explored the question: Should all of us come together and try to promote small families through intervention? Procreative rights policy is very scary because it involves the possibility ...http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2017/06/so-is-it-ethical-to-have-many-children.html

An Extra Few Days WHAT DOES MIKE THINK? - May 25, 2017 ... geared towards our lives. As an adult, holy days of obligation during the week have become a time of bonding as well. I find out who is Catholic, and we all carpool over to noon mass during lunch. It is also an opportunity for evangelization. "Hey Mike, wanna do lunch Thursday?" "Sorry, I'm going to mass with Ed and Jim and Carolyn." "Why are you going to mass?" Boy, is that an opening or what? In short, I see a lot of up sides and no down sides to keeping the holy days where ...http://wdmt.blogspot.com/2017/05/an-extra-few-days.html

The Virtue of Piety: The Catholic Response to the Alt-Right CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 22, 2017 ... community and heritage before others. It is also very much a part of common sense Anglo-American conservatism that need not be replaced by some alternative Right. If the bishops in America do not come to grips with the reality that all people have not only a right, but a duty and obligation to cherish their heritage and work for their own families and communities first, they will continue to alienate patriotic Americans who are leaving the Church out of frustration and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/dViSileu9lg/virtue-piety-catholic-response-alt-right

What Should We Reasonably Expect of the CES? COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - May 13, 2017 ... truthful. 7. Leadership Holders of public office should exhibit these principles in their own behaviour. They should actively promote and robustly support the principles and be willing to challenge poor behaviour wherever it occurs. If assessed against these standards, I would suggest, the CES is letting the Catholic laity (and indeed the bishops, their sponsors) down badly. Their response so far seems to me to fail to honour the principles of openness, honesty and accountability; leadership ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2017/05/what-should-we-reasonably-expect-of-ces.html

The Homily G-MANS JOURNEY - May 7, 2017 ... in their parishes! What they enjoy today is the fruit of their labour. Today's First Reading [Acts 2:14, 36-41] was a call to penance and conversion. When Pentecost had come, Peter stood before the crowd and told them to repent. He told them to turn away from their sins. What were their sins? The people of God had rejected Jesus as their Messiah and the Gentiles continued to worship idols. Both greatly displeased God. Peter also told the crowd that each and everyone of them should be baptized ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2017/05/the-homily.html

This family is incredibly generous, supporting various groups and institutions financially, taking people in difficult situation (including pregnant teens) into their home, volunteering with organizations promoting social justice, writing opinion pieces, even protesting and facing arrest. So, the author of the piece is a bit broad-brush in his approach. And he seems to be using the word "rich" ...http://paxchristirochester.blogspot.com/2017/04/we-are-rich.html

Easter 2017 BACK BAY VIEW - April 21, 2017 Alleluia, everyone! He is risen indeed! We had a beautiful celebration of Easter here. The whole family that is here and not at college attended the Easter Vigil where several friends were confirmed, and one friend's husband and baby were baptized and the husband confirmed, which was an answer to long years of prayer.

Holy Thursday: The Eucharist and Charity HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - April 14, 2017 ... family night. Jesus had a reason for choosing the Last Supper to declare his love for his disciples; and he has a reason to gather us tonight, each of us drawing near to one another as Jesus draws us near to himself. At the Last Supper Jesus changed the relationships of the apostles to one another, by making them sharers in the one bread and the one cup, while changing their relationships to him by sharing with them his Body and his Blood. It is exceptionally difficult to do ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2017/04/im-more-than-little-reluctant-topost.html
