It may seem counter-intuitive, but it is the prudent, God-guiding course we are to take. Remember that you are not alone. Others will see your good ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2014/10/thirtieth-sunday-of-ordinary-time.html

This man's stupidity consisted in making material possession his only aim in life and his only insurance policy. It is lawful for a person to want to own what he needs for living, but if possession of material resources becomes an absolute, it spells the ultimate destruction of the individual and of society.

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.

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.

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.

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
