Motherhood FIRE, SALT, AND LIGHT. - May 10, 2015 On this Mother's Day some thoughts from Pope St. John Paul on motherhood from his Apostolic Letter on the Dignity and Vocation of Women: from section VI, Para. 18: The human being - both male and female - is the only being in the world which God willed for its own sake. This is the profoundly reality that God who IS Love, creates us to be His beloved and infuses within us the capacity to love, to love Him, to love one another and through Jesus this love is sanctified when ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/hopeforpriests/hcWS/~3/2-CYv6HdYro/motherhood.html

My Turn: A Lesson From Damien, Leper Priest THESE STONE WALLS - May 6, 2015 ... It reminded me so vividly of a story that took place on the road to Emmaus at another time of discouragement: "That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, and talking with each other about all these things that had happened. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were kept from knowing him… Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, 'Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/WXdqueJBs10/

Receiving Holy Communion These Days COMMUNIO - May 2, 2015 I am aware we've moved into the season of catechetical year of First Holy Communion. A rich and beautiful time. But it is also a distressing time for several reasons. As a sacrament, I look forward to being with Christ in this manner. I am aware that so many are not on the same page as I am or even Mother Church. For too many Holy Communion –and the first time a person receives– ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2015/05/receiving-holy-communion-these-days/

The Mythology of Re-Marriage COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - April 18, 2015 ... indicated by this: I see no reason why one cannot believe in the indissolubility of marriage in a doctrinal sense, but still think that it is right in practice to make allowances and bend rules for people whose lives go wrong. In fact I think this is far more Christlike than treating them as uniquely sinful. The general drift is that we mustn't be too hard on people, because that is not kind; and we all make mistakes (or even, in more reactionary circles, 'we all fall into sin'). Therefore, we ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-mythology-of-re-marriage.html

The Loud Silence of St. Joseph DA MIHI ANIMAS - March 19, 2015 ... Christ-child. The Gospels are very clear that Joseph is not the father of the Lord Jesus. The child born of the Virgin Mary is God and has no earthly father. The body of Christ's human nature is created by what the scriptures describe as "the power of the Holy Spirit." If this explanation confounds us, we are rightly confounded. Christ is like us inasmuch as shares with us a human nature and lives a real human life. And yet, Christ is unlike ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-loud-silence-of-st-joseph.html

Silence in Church, 3rd Sunday of Lent, Year B FATHER DYLAN'S SERMONS - March 7, 2015 ... which is readily observable at his public audiences in the manner in which he greets and smiles to people as he comes down the aisle. Now, I note this because his behaviour during Holy Mass is noticeably different: he is solemn and composed, and as he walked down the aisle his eyes were either fixed forward to the altar or down to the ground. He was doing something SOLEMN and SACRED and his behaviour made that clear. In addition, before he came out at the start of Mass there ...http://fatherdylanjames.blogspot.com/2015/03/silence-in-church-3rd-sunday-of-lent.html

Already in the apostolic period, the tradition was established in the Church to celebrate the eucharist every Sunday (and, if possible, even more often, e.g. on the days of martyrs' commemorations), so that Christians might remain in unending communion with Christ and with each other (see, e.g. 1 Cor 10:16–17; Acts 2:46; Acts 20:7). All members of the local community took part in the weekly eucharist ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2015/03/russian-church-provides-clarity-on.html

16 Tips for Jump-Starting Your Prayer Life This Lent AGGIE CATHOLIC BLOG - February 25, 2015 ... first time or just trying to take prayer to the next level. In many ways prayer is like any other relationship. Many of us start out basing it, in many ways, on good experiences and emotions. This, as in a romantic relationship, is a good thing, because it helps bring two people closer together. But, real love can only be fostered once we stop relying on emotional highs and great experiences. Once the emotions leave, we must decide to love the other person for their own sake, ...http://www.aggiecatholicblog.org/2015/02/16-tips-for-jump-starting-your-prayer-life-this-lent/

Saint Josephine Bakhita COMMUNIO - February 8, 2015 ... know God—the true God—means to receive hope. We who have always lived with the Christian concept of God, and have grown accustomed to it, have almost ceased to notice that we possess the hope that ensues from a real encounter with this God. The example of a saint of our time can to some degree help us understand what it means to have a real encounter with this God for the first time. I am thinking of the African Josephine Bakhita, canonized by Pope John Paul II. ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2015/02/saint-josephine-bakhita-2/
