The Diaconate Is a Sacramental Office Καθολικός διάκονος - May 21, 2016 ... by being ordained a deacon that a man is constituted a cleric. The sacramental nature of the diaconate is rooted in the Church's reception, understanding, and authoritative interpretation of sacred Scripture, the relevant passage being Acts 6:1-7 . Despite some exegetical concerns- not serious ones, in my view- at least since the time of St. Ireneaus of Lyons in the second century of the common era, this passage has been understood as the origin, the magna carta , of the diaconate. There is ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/05/the-diaconate-is-sacramental-office.html

The documents of the Second Vatican Council are wordier than the extant records of all the other ecumenical councils combined. The recent apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia , is nearly two-thirds the length of all the Vatican II promulgations. The literary quality of Amoris Laetitia does not challenge the claim that the Authorized Version, or King James's Bible, is the only successful work of art composed by a committee.In his encyclical celebrating Pope Gregory I, ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2016/04/bad-papal-eggs.html

The Curate's Egg: A Reflection on Amoris Laetitia CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 13, 2016 ... Twain made opposite apologies: each had written a long letter because they did not have the time to write a short one. Not only is verbosity indicative of muddled thinking, it is the rhetorical indulgence of the modern age. The documents of the Second Vatican Council are wordier than the extant records of all the other ecumenical councils combined.

A Cooler Look at Pp. Francis' "Joy of Love" DAD29 - April 10, 2016 The current Pope is inclined to write with maximum un-clarity, except when he puts up straw-men. But he hasn't changed a thing with his letter on the joy of love. Ed Peters, a very good Canon lawyer, starts at the beginning : Holy Communion is to be withheld from divorced-and-remarried Catholics in virtue of Canon 915 which, as has been explained countless times , does not require Catholic ministers to read the souls of would-be ...http://dad29.blogspot.com/2016/04/a-cooler-look-at-pp-francis-joy-of-love.html

Threatened With a Lawsuit and Cardinal Kasper Is Not Dead - The Indiscreet Charm of the Catholic Bourgeoisie ... ABBEY ROADS - April 1, 2016 ... guy treading laughs in the Tiber ... and we miss. The unoriginal among us - me too - write too much, say too much, point fingers way too much. Much too much. So anyway, Fr. L wrote a post about Catholic fundamentalists - identifying the Remnant editors kinda/sorta as being among them, and got in trouble. Before I go further, let me say this about The Remnant 'group'. It is completely inaccurate to identify them with any type of fundamentalism or fundamentalist sect. They are ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2016/04/threatened-with-lawsuit-and-cardinal.html

The truth is that Bishop Bienvenue wasn't the bishop that France typically had in the 19th Century, but he was the bishop Victor Hugo wanted France to have. And love him or not, you cannot help but see Pope Francis in this description of " The Cleric Behind Les Mis " by Doris Donnelly in The Wall Street Journal: "They had a Bishop whose center of gravity was a compassionate God attuned to the sound of human suffering, never repelled by ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/BQVgqGnqtJQ/

A Most Diligent Mother: Angelica CRISIS MAGAZINE - March 29, 2016 ... Clare has put down mighty roots, with millions of viewers who love its dogged loyalty to the teachings of the Church. Indeed, in large swathes of the country where parishes have either closed or turned de facto Methodist, EWTN's broadcasts serve the isolated faithful like Allied broadcasts into Occupied Europe. Given the crisis of faith of the 1970s and 1980s, building EWTN sometimes meant flouting the power of worldly bishops who'd learned more than golf tricks from their liberal Protestant ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/Fv14hvfbXW8/a-most-diligent-mother-angelica-2

Was Jesus' Last Supper Actually a Passover Meal or Was It Something Completely New? TOM PERNA - March 25, 2016 This year for Lent I decided to take it upon myself to read the second part of Pope Benedict XVI's Jesus of Nazareth , which is subtitled – Holy Week: From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection. And although I have read a lot of it, I am not completely finished with it yet, but hoping to finish the chapters up to the Resurrection by Saturday morning. My lack of reading though has assisted me to write this blog post or should I say ...http://tomperna.org/2016/03/25/was-jesus-last-supper-actually-a-passover-meal-or-was-it-something-completely-new/

Homily - 13 March 2016 SERVANT AND STEWARD - March 13, 2016 ... washed away in baptism, the effects of original sin remain. The Lord knows we are still wounded and weak; how then can he tell us to go and sin no more? He does so because he wants us to the resurrection of the dead (cf. Philippians 3:11 ). Saint Augustine once famously said that each of us is a fomes peccati , a tinderbox of sin. He means to say that it takes but a small spark to ignite the destructive fire of sin within us. Each of us knows what sins we are prone to commit ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/cRviaLaRzQM/homily-13-march-2016.html

Love and Friendship DARWINCATHOLIC - February 25, 2016 In what is perhaps the least interesting approach to the topic, the BBC breathlessly reported that Pope John Paul II had an "intense friendship with a woman" ! "There is no suggestion the Pope broke his vow of celibacy," the Beeb reports, with a gentle tinge of journalistic regret that there are not actually any concrete salacious details to report about the former Karol Wojytła and Dr. Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka other than that it is possible that she might ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2016/02/love-and-friendship.html

I write with a heavy heart, and I know that heaviness of heart is shared by many of my Catholic brethren both clergy and laity.

Pope John Paul II: The Secret Letters CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - February 15, 2016 ... Pope John Paul II in Rome. At heart, they are professional, academic collaborations. And that offers two points of context. It is not unusual for academics, visiting an overseas country for a conference, to stay as house guests of faculty of the academic institutions who have invited them. And the academic field that was/is phenomenology is characterised by a closeness of friendships arising from these collaborations that is very particular. As I write, I ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2016/02/pope-john-paul-ii-secret-letters.html

Federico Lombardi referred to the Guide in his prefatory note , stating that "in the practice suggested by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith it is necessary to comply with the requirements of law in the various countries, and to do so in good time, not during or subsequent to the canonical trial." A year later, Cdl.

To Isaiah, the man of unclean lips living amongst a people of unclean lips, God sent a seraph . A seraph is an angel who belongs to highest order of the nine-fold celestial hierarchy of angels. Seraphim , which is the plural of seraph , are associated with light, ardor, and purity.
