The Advent Season's Brightest Jewels MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - December 16, 2015 ... preceded by a short verse or "antiphon" that links the prayer to the feast of the day or the season of the year. In the last seven days of Advent (December 17-24), the antiphons before the Magnificat are very special. Each begins with the exclamation "O" and ends with a plea for the Messiah to come. As Christmas approaches the prayer becomes increasingly urgent. It is believed that the "O Antiphons" were composed in the 7th or 8th century when monks put ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2015/12/the-advent-seasons-brightest-jewels.html

A couple of years ago, I came across a meme which suggested that religious people pray instead of doing things to make the world better. Of course, that ignores the vast bulk of history, in which most people who worked for positive social, economic, environmental, and political changes were also people who prayed, went to church, or had some other form of ...http://impracticalcatholic.blogspot.com/2015/12/prayer-shaming-wont-destroy-american.html

For the 800 people gathered in Washington, the morning's speeches were mainly divided between Princeton ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/11/era-of-comfortable-catholicism-is-over.html

THE POWER OF CHRIST'S NAME (plus) "PISTEVO" a Film on Icons in New York (plus) EASTERN CATHOLICISM (from Orthodox and Ca MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - November 9, 2015 my source: Chotki.com The Jesus Prayer, says Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, "more than any other," helps us to be able to "stand in God's presence."

God Magnifies Minutes HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - October 25, 2015 idn't use a text for my homily today, so can't post it. But what I said was fairly simple: we shouldn't be overly concerned with how long we spend in prayer--regularity and frequency trump duration, since God can do wonders even in short periods of contact.Too much focus on the length of time we pray can lead us to forget that God is almighty and can achieve His purposes in His own time.

Such a notion of God teaches us that we ought to stand prayerfully before Him in deepest reverence and in great fear ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2015/10/on-practising-jesus-prayer-by-st.html
