***Doing Things Without God A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - August 16, 2017 John 15.5: At the Last Supper, Jesus said to his disciples, "I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing ." What Jesus meant was that without him we cannot be fruitful for God's sake. We can perform good deeds, but without him we are still stuck with our sins. In fact, to be good is not good enough, for Jesus wants us to be perfect as ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2017/08/doing-things-without-god.html

Serious Talk About Serious Talk A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - August 15, 2017 Today is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the 2nd reading from 1 Corinthians 15, Paul writes that at the end, Jesus must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet, including the destruction of death. This is serious talk we must not casually brush aside. Either Paul knows what he is talking about or it's all baloney. The same goes for all of what Jesus has said. To not pay attention ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2017/08/serious-talk-about-serious-talk.html

***Knowing Jesus A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - August 14, 2017 What is interesting but not surprising is that even though I have not visually seen nor audibly heard Jesus, yet in my heart I know him better than anyone else. As a matter of fact, I know him intimately, since I receive him into me every day at Mass. Again, this is all his doing, the doing of the Holy Spirit, for the Lord is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-loving.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2017/08/knowing-jesus.html

Prayer: Nicholas of Cusa IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - August 14, 2017 Thank you, Jesus, for bringing me this far. In your light, I see the light of my life. Your teaching is brief and to the point: you persuade us to trust in our heavenly Father; you command us to love one another. You promise everything to those who obey your teachings; you ask nothing too hard for a believer, nothing a lover can refuse. Your promises to your disciples are true, nothing but the truth. Even more, you promise us yourself, the perfection of all that can be ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2017/08/prayer-nicholas-of-cusa.html

"It Is II; Do Not Be Afraid;" REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 13, 2017 This Sunday's Gospel is one of my favorites. Jesus made his disciples get into a boat after he had fed the crowds, but he remained to dismiss the people and then went up the mountain to pray alone. Meanwhile, the disciples in the boat were being tossed by the waves for the wind was against them. During the fourth watch of the night, Jesus comes to them walking on the sea. They are terrified but Jesus says to them, "Take courage, it is I; ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2017/08/it-is-ii-do-not-be-afraid.html

19th Sunday - A (August 13, 2017) GOD'S WORD TO US - August 12, 2017 Matthew 14: 22-33 Reflections "I Am" Prior to this passage, the disciples could not feed the crowd of over five thousand people. Jesus could. Now, the disciples are in the boat by themselves, "being tossed about by the waves." Jesus came, and "the wind died down." Jesus here identifies himself, "It is I." What Jesus says in the Greek text can be translated into English as "I am." It is the same expression ...http://godsword2us.blogspot.com/2017/08/19th-sunday-august-13-2017.html

Looking to Jesus in the Storm, 19th Sunday Ordinary Time, Year A FATHER DYLAN'S SERMONS & TALKS - August 12, 2017 ... Lord when we are in difficulty. The Gospel text we just heard is one that is powerfully symbolic of our need to look to Jesus. We heard about how the disciples were in their little fishing boat on the storm-tossed sea, and then they saw Jesus walking towards them, walking on the water. Then Peter, responding to the call of The Lord, stepped out onto the water, stepped out into the storm, and walked on the water TOWARDS Jesus. The point I want ...http://fatherdylanjames.blogspot.com/2017/08/looking-to-jesus-in-storm-19th-sunday.html

Abandonment to Jesus CATHOLIC LIGHT - RADICAL FAITH & TRUST - August 9, 2017 Abandonment to Jesus : Per ipsum et cum ipso et in ipso: through Jesus, with Jesus, and in Jesus. "Without me, you can do nothing." "With You, Jesus, I can do all things." "Renew these thoughts which bind you to Him and which plunge you into the abyss of love which is His Heart. The logical and necessary consequence of the complete confidence which I have preached to you until now is total abandonment. Since ...http://tsahaylu.blogspot.com/2017/08/abandonment-to-jesus.html

Making Faith Beautiful A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - August 8, 2017 Today is the Memorial of St. Dominic. The Gospel reading from Matthew 14 tells that the disciples of Jesus in a boat saw the Lord walking on water toward them. Peter also wanted to try, but after he got out of the boat and began to walk toward Jesus, he became frightened and began to sink. Jesus caught him and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" The lesson to me here is that we should never doubt the Lord ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2017/08/making-faith-beautiful.html

If Christ Gives You Graces, What Do You Do With Them? (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - August 8, 2017 ... Scriptures -- such as the first reading. But there's something curious -- perhaps you wondered about it: why did Jesus only bring along these three? Why not bring all the Apostles up the mountain to experience this? We don't really know, but you might notice that these same three are invited to pray with him in the Garden of Gethsemane; and we do know that Peter was the leader of the Apostles. So we might guess that James and John were also ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2017/08/if-christ-gives-you-graces-what-do-you.html

Wednesday, August 9, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - August 8, 2017 Wednesday of the Eighteenth Week in Ordinary Time (Numbers 13:1-2.25-14.1.26a-29a.34-35; Matthew 15:21-28) Today's gospel not only shows the value of persistent prayer but also the valor of a woman who seeks the welfare of her child. We must take care not to be scandalized by the remark of Jesus comparing non-Jews to dogs. He only means that his mighty works are not done to impress people. Rather, they are meant to foster ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/08/wednesday-august-9-2017.html

The Transfiguration of the Lord REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 6, 2017 ... pleased. Listen to him." Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There, Jesus was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light. Moses and Elijah appeared and conversed with Jesus. Peter wanted to stay there and offered to make three tents, but "while he was still speaking, behold a bright cloud cast a shadow over them, then from the cloud came a voice that ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-transfiguration-of-lord.html

The Transfiguration of the Lord CATHOLIC LIGHT - RADICAL FAITH & TRUST - August 6, 2017 Gospel Reading: Mt 17:1-9 Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother, John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the sun and his clothes became white as light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, conversing with him. Then Peter said to Jesus in reply, "Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." While ...http://tsahaylu.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-transfiguration-of-lord.html

The Transfiguration: 4 Steps to Hearing God's Voice CATHOLIC LIGHT - RADICAL FAITH & TRUST - August 6, 2017 The Transfiguration: 4 Steps to Hearing God's Voice : "You recall Jesus' transfiguration: While Jesus was at prayer on a mountaintop, Peter, James, and John witnessed Him become "more brilliant than the sun." Moses and Elijah appeared to Jesus, and the disciples heard them discussing his "exodus." The scene culminated with a cloud (the Shekinah, or cloud of God's glory) overshadowing the mountain as …"http://tsahaylu.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-transfiguration-4-steps-to-hearing.html

Friday, August 4, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - August 3, 2017 ... not know its real worth. In the gospel today the townspeople where Jesus grew up similarly do not recognize Jesus for who he really is. The people of Nazareth think that they know Jesus because they know his family. They cannot comprehend that he is the long awaited Messiah who comes to save Israel. Even his miraculous cures and his wonderful teaching do not convince them but just confound ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/08/friday-august-4-2017.html

Thursday, August 3, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - August 2, 2017 ... 40:16-21.34-38; Matthew 13:47-53) We might call the significance of the two parables in today's gospel "a matter of emphasis." Jesus emphasizes the bad fish and the new teaching. He summarily says the good fish will be put into buckets but explains that corrupt people are like bad fish and will be thrown in fiery furnaces. Jesus more subtly emphasizes his new teaching in the storeroom of wisdom by inverting the expected order of words. Rather than speaking of ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/08/thursday-august-3-2017.html

St. Martha of Bethany ATONEMENTONLINE - July 28, 2017 Our first thought upon hearing the name of St. Martha is probably the recollection of the woman preparing a meal for the Lord Jesus, upset that her sister Mary is not helping her, and who then is gently rebuked by Christ when He told her that "Mary has chosen the better portion." What we should more readily recall, however, is her exchange with the Lord when He came to her house after the death of her brother Lazarus. Martha said to ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2017/07/st-martha-of-bethany.html

Why Do We Say It? IN HIM ALONE - July 26, 2017 I wrote this a few years ago. I think it's good to ask myself the same question from time to time: ----- Therefore Pilate . . . summoned Jesus and said to Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?" Jesus answered, "Are you saying this on your own initiative, or did others tell you about Me?" (John 18:33-34) Why do we believe Jesus is King? And Lord? Because our parents told us it's so? Our teachers? Pastors? Books we've ...http://thecontemplativecatholicconvert.blogspot.com/2017/07/why-do-we-say-it.html

Thursday, July 27, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - July 26, 2017 ... of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time (Exodus 19:1-2. 9-11.16-20b; Matthew 13:10-17) We think of parables as little stories that illustrate what Jesus is trying to teach. They are like the vignettes a high school teacher used to tell to make a point. Most of his students will remember the anecdote about the bank robber Willie Loman. Asked once why he robbed banks, Loman famously replied, "…because that's where the money is." Then the teacher told his students that they ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/07/thursday-july-27-2017.html

James and James THE ONE TRUE FAITH - July 25, 2017 James the Greater This morning's Gospel was Matt. 20: 20-28. Here we see the sons of Zebedee, James and John, pester Jesus about giving them seats next to him: one on the right and one on the left. James the Less The story goes on. Jesus gently scolds them (the other apostles are angry) for their chutzpah. He tells them that they'd have to undergo all the trials and tribulations He will be going through. In other words, "No." That story isn't what caught ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2017/07/james-and-james.html
