Behold the Virgin YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - September 8, 2014 ... Christ. Without a willing, humble and obedient vessel, the Nativity of our Lord would not have been possible. The Gospel today refers to the human lineage of Jesus – a sprout from the tree of Jesse, the father of David the king. Such ancestry is connected on both the paternal side as well as the maternal side. So although Matthew goes into great detail of the generations of ancestors for Joseph the carpenter, Mary's blood lines were more important because they made ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2014/09/behold-virgin.html

As the Gospel illustrates, even the best friends of Jesus misunderstand him often. This is painful because often a person will focus upon the fracture in the friendship and lose sight of the more important meaning. We all know of a person who makes an emotional mountain out of a molehill because someone looked at him or her in a way they did not fully understand. This person wants everyone to attend to the ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2014/08/twenty-second-sunday-of-ordinary-time.html

God's gifts of reconciliation, unity and peace are inseparably linked to the grace of conversion, a change of heart which can alter the course of our lives and our history, as individuals and as a people. At this Mass, we naturally hear this promise in the context of the historical experience of the Korean people, an experience of division and conflict which has lasted for well over sixty years. But God's urgent summons ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2014/08/this-is-message-i-leave-you-trust-in.html

During the First Reading from the First Book of Kings, [1 Kings 19:9, 11-13] we heard that Elijah had gone to a cave at Horeb, the mount of God, where he stayed for 40 days. Why was Elijah at the cave? He was hiding there because Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, had sent a messenger to inform him of her intent to kill him.

My Camino Saint CREO EN DIOS! - July 25, 2014 Today the Catholic Church celebrates the feast of St. James, apostle and martyr. There are several references to James and his brother John in the Gospel in which he doesn't appear so admirable. One is today's Gospel reading where his mother approached Jesus with her sons asking that they "sit, one at your right and the other at your left, in your Kingdom," causing the other apostles to become "indignant at the two brothers." Another is when ...http://susanjoan.wordpress.com/2014/07/25/my-camino-saint/

"Come to me": the Master is addressing the crowds who are following him, "harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd" (Mt 9:36). The Pharisees weighed them down with an endless series of petty regulations (cf. Acts 15:10), yet they brought no peace to their souls. Jesus tells these people, and us, about the kind of burden he imposes: "Any other burden oppresses and crushes you, but Christ's actually takes weight off you. Any other ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/07/navarre-bible-commentary-thursday-15th.html

Pius XII on Natural Law ABBEY ROADS - July 5, 2014 ... the modern conspiracy to undermine natural law: "The natural law is being nullified by detraction and neglect." 28. The present age, Venerable Brethren, by adding new errors to the doctrinal aberrations of the past, has pushed these to extremes which lead inevitably to a drift towards chaos. Before all else, it is certain that the radical and ultimate cause of the evils which We deplore in modern society is the denial and rejection of a universal norm of morality as well for individual and ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2014/07/pius-xii-on-natural-law.html

The soldier who does not leave his position on the battlefront to bury his father, but instead leaves that to those in the rearguard, is doing his duty. If service to one's country makes demands like that on a person, all the more reason for it to happen in the service of Jesus Christ and his Church. Following Christ, then, means we should make ourselves totally available to him; whatever sacrifice he asks of us we should make: the call to follow Christ means staying up with him, not falling ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/06/navarre-bible-commentary-monday-13th.html

This leads to a kind of alienation at every level, for "a society becomes alienated when its forms of social organization, production and consumption make it more difficult to offer the gift of self and to establish solidarity between people".

Navarre Bible Commentary:Friday, 5th Week of Easter JOE CATHOLIC - May 23, 2014 ... it was the second precept of the whole Law and similar to the first: Love God with all your heart and soul and mind (cf. Mt 22:37–40). But Jesus gives the precept of brotherly love new meaning and content by saying "even as I have loved you". The love of neighbour called for by the Old Law did also in some way extend to one's enemies (Ex 23:4–5); however, the love which Jesus preaches is much more demanding and includes returning good for evil (cf. Mt 5:43–44), because ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/05/navarre-bible-commentary-friday-5th.html
