Mardi Gras Prayer HAPPY CATHOLIC* - February 9, 2016 ... prayer, which I have posted for the last few years. We tend to think of the feasting of Mardi Gras as being totally opposite to the fasting of Lent. But they don't have to be. If we turn our eyes toward God the entire time, feasting and fasting can be seen as sides of the same coin. In these or similar words, we can pray in the spirit of this day. Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for it is from your goodness that we have this day to celebrate on the ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2016/02/mardi-gras-prayer.html

Tradition tells us that Lent has three distinguishing marks: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. This three-part series will examine those practices.

How much of my time do I give to serving the poor? When I complain about what I don't have, do I take an honest look at all I do have? Could it be that I actually have more than I really need? How might I simplify my life this Lent - and ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2016/02/whats-it-all-about.html

Tuesday, February 9, 2016 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - February 8, 2016 ... in today's gospel. Jesus takes the Pharisees to task for minding the shell and not the kernel of the Law. He finds their concern about purifying their hands before eating as if they were preparing to offer Temple sacrifice pompous. He would say that if they really desired to please God they should help the needy. It is not wrong nor is it very hard to give up chocolate. We might begin our Lenten penance in that way. But we need to go far beyond that. Giving the money saved on sweets to assist ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2016/02/tuesday-february-9-2016.html

Many follow Him to the breaking of bread, but few to the drinking of the chalice of His passion. Many revere His miracles; few approach the shame of the Cross. Many love Him as long as they encounter no hardship; many praise and bless Him as long as they receive some comfort from Him.

Two Kinds of Enemies BLOG OF THE DORMITION - February 7, 2016 ... Forgiveness isn't something entirely within our own power. When the Pharisees say, "Who can forgive sins but God alone," they have a point (though they fail to see that they are making their point to God himself). But if you've ever felt like you couldn't forgive someone because they have hurt you so deeply or because their crime is so heinous, in a way, you're right. That is, you can't forgive them of your own individual power, by your own unaided will. You can't do it, but Christ can, and in ...http://holydormition.blogspot.com/2016/02/two-kinds-of-enemies.html
