Hidden Glory Always There (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - March 1, 2015 ... first scratch. Would that we were as sorry about the sins that soil our souls! But that's all the more reason to give thanks for the sacrament of confession. If we could see the hidden glory, what would it look like when the priest gives absolution? Something like the hidden glory of baptism, I think; and maybe something like what the Apostles saw. Jesus showed his glory to the Apostles because he knew what darkness lay ahead for them. Are you facing darkness and trial? John would stand at the ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2015/03/hidden-glory-always-there-sunday-homily.html

February 17 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - February 17, 2015 ... first reading today God is also frustrated with the whole lot of his human creations because of their wickedness and unwillingness to change: and so, he plans to destroy them all, except for the one who found favor with him (and all kinds of pairs of animals) – Noah and his family, and all manner of families of animals. We too must be quick to understand God's underlying intent to redeem and forgive – even though his people always made this a most difficult thing for themselves. ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/02/february-17-homily-for-today.html

Healing the Evil of Isolation (Sunday 6B) HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - February 15, 2015 ... about leprosy—the most repugnant disease of his time—I can get away with it. The reason this memory came to mind today is the importance I attached to having someone who loved me sharing my childhood misery. Forty years later when I had minor surgery at St. Paul's, my mother was there when I came out of the anesthetic; it was just a coincidence that she was in town—I wasn't such a wuss that I asked my mother to fly out from Toronto—but I recall thinking not too many ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2015/02/healing-evil-of-isolation-sunday-6b.html

Pope Francis Makes Surprise Visit to Immigrant Settlement DA MIHI ANIMAS - February 10, 2015 ... "The devil takes something silly and makes a world out of it."

Jesus Heals (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - February 8, 2015 ... A lot of folks just dismiss the Gospels as "just stories." But here's the thing: Matthew and Mark's Gospels were probably written about 30-35 years after the events they describe; and Matthew's Gospel, at least, was shared immediately around the area where the things took place. So here's a thought-experiment. Suppose someone wrote a book about events that happened in Ohio, in the year 1980 – that's 35 years ago. And suppose that book claimed thousands and thousands of ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2015/02/jesus-heals-sunday-homily.html

Mighty Deeds IMPRISONED IN MY BONES - February 5, 2015 ... recent noon Mass, during his homily, Fr. Matt Walsh, SJ, spoke about Mark's Gospel passage regarding the lack of welcome that Jesus received in His hometown. He asked, "What could it possibly mean that Jesus wasn't able to perform any mighty deed apart from curing a few sick? Wasn't curing a few sick considered a mighty deed?" Fr. Matt explained that the mighty deeds that Jesus had wanted to perform weren't pertaining to the curing of the sick but rather to the increasing of ...http://annebender.blogspot.com/2015/02/mighty-deeds.html

January 30 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - January 30, 2015 Jesus, the Teacher and Preacher, would communicate what he had to say using stories, of course: what other way is there, really, to do the job? The stories he used were of things that were quite familiar to the audience on that particular day. Today he is speaking to those who plant their own food – which was just about everyone. They knew something of the seed planting, growing and harvesting process, but not everything. They knew how to start ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/01/january-30-homily-for-today.html

Homily for the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, 2015 MONASTERY OF THE HOLY CROSS - January 20, 2015 What intrigues us about 'quest' stories is that the characters often discover something other than what they set off to find.

The Original Christian Bromance NUNBLOG - January 2, 2015 ... paragraphs, that this is an ancient (circa AD 380) witness to same-sex marriage. Instead it is a picture of Christian friendship: "We followed the guidance of God's law and spurred each other on to virtue." Wouldn't it be wonderful if more people today were to share the stories of that kind of spiritual friendship? These are stories that demonstrate the breadth of love, a warm human love that is as fulfilling as it is chaste. We can broaden the discourse about ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-original-christian-bromance.html

The words of one of the hymns we sang settled into my soul. " Crown Him the Lord of years, the Potentate of time, Creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime. One of our parish priests, Father Jeff Calia, C.O. pointed out in his homily that Christ is king for sure, but a king who rules not through coercion but by giving us free will.

Certainly not because they were out to seduce him–that's what the Pharisees and scribes wanted to do. Consider that devastating re-write at Commonweal about returning sinners. The naysayers observed Jesus with a posture of welcome–their words: The tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus, but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying, "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them." So the ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/11/13/reconciliation-lectionary-luke-151-10/

People use the word so much they don't even hear it anymore or realize that they are saying it. Think of all the waisted time. If we cut the word "actually" out of the typical one hour meeting, I bet we could get out ten minutes earlier. Even texting would be less time consuming. The problem is, once you notice it, you can't stop noticing it. It gets under your skin. And like an ex-smoker, once you stop your dirty habit everything in you wants everybody else to stop also.
