Their obvious commitment to the faith made it easy to speak from the heart… We don't have that many weddings in the parish—fewer than one a month. But this week I had two, and I was not happy about the first one. Not because the bride and groom weren't a lovely couple, but because I was wearing ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2015/05/great-couple-great-readings-robert-and.html

The Wrong and Right Ways to Welcome Others (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - May 10, 2015 ... welcoming others into the Family of God. Notice how, in the first reading, God creates a situation in which not only Peter, but those with him, are forced to say, yes God wants to share the Holy Spirit with everyone, even those outsiders we call Gentiles. It's hard to appreciate how shocking this would have been. To Jews in that time, Gentiles were not only foreigners; they were "unclean," unholy. But most of all, they were a threat. When Peter and his companions visited the ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-wrong-and-right-ways-to-welcome.html

Reflection: John 15:9-11 THE DOME BLOG - May 7, 2015 John 15:9-11 – Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter 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 ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/05/reflection-john-159-11_7.html

Homily: Taking Chances With God BUKAS PALAD - March 22, 2015 ... in God's ways. A new chance to be in friendship with God and one another. A chance not to ignore God again. We hear all these when the psalmist's cries out for such a chance: "Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a right spirit within me." Tradition identifies the psalmist as King David. He is begging God to forgive his sins of adultery and of killing the husband of the woman he slept with to cover up his wrongdoing. Realizing that his sinfulness cuts him off from God, ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2015/03/homily-taking-chances.html

Two Great Popes STUDEO: MY THINKING SPOT - March 19, 2015 ... related article). This made me think again about how much I find in continuity between the two popes. (Not the least of which is how difficult/impossible it is to put either of these great men into simple categories that we tend to use in popular media today.) In many ways, I have felt it was Pope Francis who was able to put Pope Benedict's beautiful teachings into action. Here are some examples from Pope Benedict's writings that remind me of Pope Francis: The first and ...http://studeo.blogspot.com/2015/03/two-great-popes.html

Sharing and receiving emotions builds bonds of friendship. As we move to the final days of Jesus, we pay attention silently to how he handles his fate. We sit forward with our senses heightened and we feel with him as he experiences his pain and loss once again. We are simply to be with him.

As we look at our world, we still find many people who put themselves above all else. Many are aggressive, lacking kindness, and concerned mostly for their own needs. They do not care if they make others feel unsafe, vulnerable, or scared. It does not serve their own interests to be aware of others. We feel that many are impolite, rude, and lacking positive manners. Listen to the language of people on the ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-fourth-sunday-of-lent.html

They experience a change within themselves that enables them to hear God's voice announcing Jesus' identity as God's ''beloved Son." Their own transfiguration also allows them to hear more clearly the terms of their own discipleship; God asks them to "listen to Jesus." Their "A-ha" moment is about glimpsing the divine—that God is indeed with them—and learning the truth ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2015/03/homily-goodness-of-ha-moments.html

These are crucial turning points in the story of these men. Abraham long practiced fidelity to God and he survived the crucial test of giving up his only son. His other son, Ishmael, was born to a servant woman, and not born of the free marriage to Sarah. Abraham's "yes" validated God's trust in him, which bestowed the fatherly blessing upon his descendants. While the fate of Jesus was becoming clearer, he took his inner circle of friends up ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-second-sunday-of-lent.html

The Gospel reminds us that the Spirit drove Jesus into the desert for forty days for testing by Satan. As we stand on the edge of Lent, we go forth into our spiritual wilderness recognizing that we have God's backing from start, that our consciences are clear because of our baptism, and that we are already in the time of fulfillment. We do nothing in Lent on our own, but let us not take God's support for granted. We cannot go through life passively relying ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-first-sunday-of-lent.html

Responsorial Psalm 31. 1-2,5,11 (R/v 7) / I Corinthians 10.31-11.1 / Mark 1.40-45 We've all seen those advertisements about washing detergents.

This is how the gospel writer Mark describes Jesus healing Simon Peter's mother-in-law from her fever. He focuses our attention on Jesus' touch. We can however miss this detail altogether in today's gospel story because we are often busy interpreting it in terms of miracles and mission. Touch . It isn't our usual manner of communicating with one another. We are far more comfortable interacting with ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2015/02/homily-grace-of-touching.html
