Isn't a handwritten letter more personal than an electronic note? Also, there are types of closeness. Think, for instance, of the differences between shaking hands, holding hands, and kissing someone. The qualities of closeness and of presence differ. The more personal the presence the better is our relationship with another. Enjoying the presence of another, enjoying the presence of someone we want to be our ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/02/homily-for-8th-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

We Desire Not Only to Know Fully, but to Be Fully Known Καθολικός διάκονος - January 29, 2017 ... God: "Our hearts are restless, until they can find rest in you." Desire causes us to suffer when we place our hope in the wrong things, when we seek to satisfy our desire with what can never satisfy us: money, power, and sex are the big three. This is like trying to quench your thirst by eating sand. Even human relationships cannot satisfy your desire. No other human being, except God-made-man-for-us, Jesus Christ, can bear the weight of your need. He bore that weight when He went to the ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/01/we-desire-not-only-to-know-fully-but-to.html

Why More and More Priests Can't Stand Pope Francis (Opinion) CLERICAL WHISPERS - January 17, 2017 On 2 January, the Vatican published a letter from Pope Francis to the world's bishops in which he reminded them that they must show 'zero tolerance' towards child abuse. The next day, the American Week magazine published an article that told the story of 'Don Mercedes' — Fr Mauro Inzoli, an Italian priest with a passion for expensive cars and underage boys. In 2012, Pope Benedict stripped Inzoli of his priestly faculties, effectively defrocking him. ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/01/why-more-and-more-priests-cant-stand.html

But even in the Mass, Jesus does not only give Himself to us in one way. He really and truly gives Himself to us in the Mass in four distinct ways. First, He is among us as simply through our gathering together. "For where two or three are gathered together in my name," Jesus said to His disciples, "there am I in the midst of them" ( Matt 18:20 ). Second, He is present to us in ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/01/year-i-first-friday-in-ordinary-time.html

A Child Abuse Scandal Is Coming for Pope Francis (Opinion) CLERICAL WHISPERS - January 4, 2017 ... allies, and humiliate an antagonist. Rumors of this reform have been circulating in Rome for months. And not happily. Pope Francis and his cardinal allies have been known to interfere with CDF's judgments on abuse cases. This intervention has become so endemic to the system that cases of priestly abuse in Rome are now known to have two sets of distinctions. The first is guilty or innocent. The second is "with cardinal friends" or "without cardinal friends." And indeed, Pope ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/01/a-child-abuse-scandal-is-coming-for.html

It is one last meditation on the cosmical meaning of the Nativity, on the decisive and radical change it performed in the entire creation. Vespers, which usually follows the Hours, inaugurates the ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2016/12/january-7th-december-25-in-julian.html

Homily - 18 December 2016 - The Fourth Sunday of Advent: There Is Still Time to Be Still SERVANT AND STEWARD - December 18, 2016 ... Francis reminds us, "where love is concerned, silence is always more eloquent than words." [9] Indeed, before so great a mystery as the birth of the only Son of God, of God made man, what else is there to do but to fall to the knees in humble, grateful, loving, and silent adoration? What words could possibly be uttered in the presence of the Divine Child? For this reason that ancient and beloved hymn sings, Let all mortal flesh keep silence and with fear and trembling stand; ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/NLzPsdxWAow/homily-18-december-2016-fourth-sunday.html

Now appearance can certainly deceive us. But in fact, Jesus is beside us throughout our lives -- to the very last moment! -- to save us. Once, a woman went to a holy priest whose name was John Maria Vianney. He was the pastor of the parish in Ars, in France.

Jesus, Our Divine Master, and the Holy Spirit THOMAS FOR TODAY - October 30, 2016 ... Divine Master, our Way, Truth, and Life. Here is a reflection on how this devotion can only be lived in union with the Holy Spirit. Toward the end of his life Yves Congar, OP, wrote: "If I were to draw but one conclusion from the whole of my work on the Holy Spirit, I would express it in these words: no Christology without pneumatology, and no pneumatology without Christology" ( Word and Spirit, p. 1). Our Founder, Blessed James Alberione, gave the Pauline ...http://thomasfortoday.blogspot.com/2016/10/jesus-our-divine-master-and-holy-spirit.html
