Homily: His Eyes on Us BUKAS PALAD - July 30, 2016 ... also come to know another's love for us? Genuine love never lies, nor dies. We know it when we feel it or see it. We know when it is fake. We know words cannot fully express it. Yet, when love is true, we experience its depth and breadth and height, and we soar on its wings . Ignatius of Loyola reminds us "love is shown more in deeds than in words". In many ways and at many times, we work to make it real in our Christian lives and in this Jesuit parish. For Ignatius, to love more in deeds than ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2016/07/homily-his-eyes-on-us.html

Prayers That Are Answered; Prayers That Are 'Fulfilled' FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - July 24, 2016 ... Lord to spare the city in spite of the great wickedness and evil that was present there. But, as we all know, the place eventually got "torched": fire and brimstone came down from heaven at God's command and annihilated the city—as well as everyone who lived there. Now some might read the story of these events in Genesis 18 and 19 and say that Abraham's prayer—his intercessory prayer for God's mercy—was not answered. But I would disagree with that. I would say that God did in ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2016/07/prayers-that-are-answered-prayers-that.html

The Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - July 20, 2016 ... Abraham paused to ask the Lord about the extent of his mercy to innocent people. Abraham learned the supreme value of asking questions to shape the response of others. In this passage, he asked whether God's justice would include the killing of the innocent with the wicked because God was determined to wipe out the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because they failed to provide hospitality to travellers. Abraham wanted to learn about the Lord's boundaries. He was ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2016/07/the-seventeenth-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

Jul 17 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - July 17, 2016 + Our gospel today is about making the most out of a visit from Jesus , when he decides to come to call. The operative phrase here is "when he decides to come!" These are not the planned out times when we almost demand to see him, or summon him, or at least strongly request his presence, or even gently so! These are the moments when he himself takes the initiative to visit us, when he thinks we need it – imagine that – and has something important ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2016/07/jul-17-homily-for-today.html

Focus (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - June 28, 2016 As I reflected on these readings from Scripture, one word came to mind: focus. In the first reading, we have Saint Elijah seeking out the man God had chosen as his successor, Elisha. Elisha is focused: by slaughtering his oxen and giving away the food, he shut the door on ever going back on his resolve to be the Lord's prophet. Then in the Gospel, we see Jesus totally focused on Jerusalem. He knows what will happen there: he will give his life as a ransom ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/06/focus-sunday-homily.html

Remember This YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - June 26, 2016 ... reading today picks up. Amos's audience would applaud his condemnation of foreign kingdoms in the foregoing seven oracles, especially of Judah. But now he adds an eighth, unexpected oracle—against Israel itself. This is the real "punch line" of this whole section, to which the preceding oracles serve mainly as introduction. Amos, it seems, is treading the same waters as the other prophets and the historical books. He also is calling Israel to task for following its ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/06/remember-this.html

Homily: Being Seen BUKAS PALAD - June 5, 2016 ... relationship; they are two ships passing in the night. They are indeed out of each other's sight. Isn't this true of how we are to one another sometimes? When husbands and wives refuse to forgive each other's faults, only to build the wall of anger higher everyday? When family members gather for dinner, only for each to do her own thing--photographing food for Facebook posts, or playing " Clash of Clans " or checking emails, or whatsapp-ing others? When we put our work before good friends, ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2016/06/year-c-ordinary-time-week-10-sunday.html

May 16 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - May 16, 2016 ... the entire Christmas / Lenten Easter Cycle – returning to green-vestmented "ordinary time" – we are reminded in the first reading, from the letter of St. James, that the "fruit of righteousness," the fruit of "right living" is "sown in peace for those who cultivate peace." This is the entire theme of the above mentioned cycles: PEACE. Jesus came forth from the Father to restore peace, where there was chaos; to restore friendship with God, where ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2016/05/may-16-homily-for-today.html

Take My Hand YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - May 15, 2016 ... ways maybe like the difference that will happen after the Resurrection. Peter, James, and John have special, inside knowledge now of who Jesus is and what it means to be WITH Jesus. Such an experience adds to the strength of their faith even though Peter will still deny his friendship with Jesus soon. They also have been admonished not to share what just happened, not even with the rest of the Apostles. Into the arguing crowd they enter and when Jesus is tested he poses the ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/05/take-my-hand.html

Homily: To Be Together BUKAS PALAD - May 15, 2016 ... with you", Jesus greets them. It is a familiar turn of phrase that binds Jesus and his disciples again in friendship. Yet he says it anew, its timbre rich in the merciful love of one who has died, risen and saved humankind. Jesus' peace is the disciples' experience of God's mercy, compassion and forgiveness. He then sends them forth into the world to share this peace and so reconcile the world with God. This is why Jesus breathes the Spirit upon them. It connects the ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2016/05/homily-to-be-together.html

He recently interviewed Carl E. about Called To Be the Children: The Catholic Theology of Human Deification , recently published by Ignatius Press; the two discussed the genesis and purpose of the book, common reactions to the Church's teachings about theosis/deification, misunderstandings about the teaching, the Scriptural foundations for deification, and why this topic ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2016/05/carl-e-olson-on-the-catholic-theology-of-human-deification.html

Forgiven YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - May 13, 2016 ... anything to happen to his friend. A servant Messiah who washes the feet of his disciples is unimaginable to Peter. It should be the other way around. That he would deny knowing Jesus not once but three times was incomprehensible to him in advance. He loves Jesus. Yet he does exactly what Jesus predicts at the Last Supper. But who among us is going to point a finger at Peter? We call ourselves Christians, but learning what it means to be a disciple is the work of a lifetime. Being a servant to ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/05/forgiven.html

Reflection: John 15:9-11 THE DOME BLOG - April 28, 2016 Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter - John 15:9-11 This Gospel is very brief: only 3 verses. Yet it is a powerful and loving reading. Jesus tells us that He loves us as deeply as His Father loves Him. Think about that for moment. Who are the people you love most deeply: your spouse, your children, your parents, or a very good friend? Now choose one person you care deeply about and ask yourself: What does that person mean ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/04/reflection-john-159-11.html
