Feast Day for St. Augustine HAPPY CATHOLIC* - August 29, 2016 ... loved. (St. Augustine, describing his daily life) Just a few tidbits of wisdom from my first saint friend and a great Doctor of the Church, St. Augustine. His writing has informed a lot of my practical daily Catholic life. At times his writing has soared way above my head (he was brilliant, after all) and I have by no means read even a fraction of it (City of God ... someday perhaps). But even the tidbits, the crumbs, that fall at my feet are gratefully received and have made a huge difference ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2016/08/feast-day-for-st-augustine.html

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Cycle C LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - August 28, 2016 There is probably no greater summary of our faith, than that which we hear in our Gospel today: "The one who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted." Because what that means, as C.S. Lewis once put it: "is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less." In fact, that is the way our Gospel ends, with the reminder that the mark of true humility is inviting those whom we know can never repay us, ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2016/08/22nd-sunday-in-ordinary-time-cycle-c.html

Approaching Holy Mass With Humility (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - August 28, 2016 Let me begin by pointing out something you may have noticed: the second reading today was also the second reading last Sunday! You may be wondering, how that happened. It happened this way: while the readings most weeks are assigned, last week's were special, for the anniversary of this church being consecrated, and they were chosen by…me. I didn't notice the coincidence. In any case, it gives us a chance to really reflect on that reading, which is ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/08/approaching-holy-mass-with-humility.html

Homily: To Welcome, Be Humble. BUKAS PALAD - August 28, 2016 ... believe we all want this. We want to see and act like Jesus. We know that grounding ourselves in Jesus is the way to do this. It involves living the virtue of humility he also teaches in today's gospel. Humility comes from the Latin word "humus" whose Greek origin is "homa". "Humus" and "homa": they refer to the soil, the ground. Humility is therefore wisdom for our earthly life. Humility enables us to know our place in society, where so often degree, or pedigree, or income ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2016/08/homily-to-welcome-be-humble.html

Humility—22nd Sunday for Ordinary Time (Cycle C) IS MY PHYLACTERY SHOWING? - August 28, 2016 Sirach 3:17–18, 20, 28–29; Hebrews 12:18–19, 22–24; Luke 14: 1, 7–14 The theme of the Old Testament and Gospel readings this week is humility. It's a subject that many of us would rather not talk about. Fortunately, as the parish staff knows, humility happens to be one of my best qualities. Our youth minister, Alex, assures us that his humility is simply amazing. So what is this virtue of humility? I think we hear the word and associate it ...http://theocoid.blogspot.com/2016/08/humility22nd-sunday-for-ordinary-time.html

22nd Sunday PRINTED AS PREACHED - August 27, 2016 Christ's parable in the Gospel, told to a people who were very sensitive about their position in social circles, allows us likewise to reflect on the virtue of humility. Yet, humility is paradoxically, a virtue that you can not be deliberate in trying to attain. You can not try to be humble; you can not work on humility for it can easily become false humility. All human virtues, those attributes which bring out the beauty of our humanity, begin with a reflective, ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2016/08/22nd-sunday.html

Pakistan, Scotland, South Africa) Gospel Luke 14:1, 7-14 ( New Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition , Canada) On one occasion when Jesus was going to the house of a leader of the Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were watching him closely. When he noticed how the guests chose the places of honor, he told them a parable. "When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than you has ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2016/08/but-when-you-give-banquet-invite-poor.html

The closer we can get our politics, our economics, our social and moral landscape to His will, the better for all. If we cannot make the world a visibly better place, we can at least be purified of our own sins, and thus made more ready for heaven. The purification required is that we would have a complete trust and love of God, and like small children would trust in Him always to provide. Thus, as in the ...http://luxvera.blogspot.com/2016/08/14th-sunday-after-pentecost-21-aug-2016.html

But is this enough to get us through the narrow gate that Jesus mentioned in Sunday's Gospel? It's a bit disconcerting to hear him say that many people will not be able to get through it!

Jesus mentions specifically the physically handicapped who, in his world, had no income but what they could get by begging, with no hope of improving their lot. Today's second reading declares in a solemn and poetic way just how blessed and privileged we Christians are. The first reading tells us, "Humble yourself the more, the greater you are." We may be better off than others in many ways. That doesn't make us better than anyone else. The willingness to reach out to others ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2016/08/fr-butlers-homily-for-22nd-sunday-in.html

Not Peace, but Division: A Remarkable Homily HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - August 22, 2016 ... while giving excellent advice about the right way to witness in charity to the truth. "Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division." These are very perplexing words from our Blessed Lord. What does he mean? A puzzling contradiction: Jesus is the Prince of Peace! He is our only hope for peace. Why does the Lord speak this way? Today's Gospel is rich and varied in its meaning. The Sacred Scriptures urge us to stop thinking ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2016/08/not-peace-but-division-remarkable-homily.html

After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door, then will you stand outside knocking and saying, 'Lord, open the door for us.' He will say to you in reply, 'I do not know where you are from. And you will say, 'We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.' Then he will say to you, 'I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers!' And there will be wailing ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2016/08/living-in-training.html

Reflection: Luke 13:22-30 THE DOME BLOG - August 21, 2016 21 st Sunday in Ordinary Time - Luke 13:22-30 The Gospel today begins with someone in the crowd asking Jesus if only select people will be saved. In differing situations, we might hear conversations or homilies about being saved. Ask yourself: do you worry about "being saved?" If so, what is the source of your anxiety? What does it stem from? Does it come from not being perfect? Or do you worry about some choices you made in the past that were not good for you or for the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/08/reflection-luke-1322-30.html

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Cycle C LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - August 21, 2016 In today's Gospel, someone poses a question, which more or less is asking how many people will be saved, yet, Jesus, rather than answering the question directly, instead, explains how one is to be saved. He says: "Strive to enter through the narrow gate." But, as many commentators point out that word "strive" carries a lot of weight, in fact, it was a word commonly used during the Grecian games in races, wrestling, and athletic exercises, and it meant to put forth all of ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2016/08/21st-sunday-in-ordinary-time-cycle-c.html

Listening carefully to the voice of the Lord in today's Gospel, we can note that there is a sense of sadness in his voice that many who presume their own salvation is assured, will unfortunately be denied the very salvation they believe they will receive. (cf. St. Cyril of Alexandria, Commentary on Luke, Homily 9) Although the Holy Scriptures do promise salvation to those who have faith in ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2016/08/21st-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

He answers at a different level. He says that there are two gates or doors that people believe are ways into the kingdom of God, but only one can lead us to sit at the messianic banquet: there is the way of repentance which is hard and the way of complacency, which is easy. The narrow way of repentance begins by recognising our weakness, how easily our values can become distorted, how secondary things can become ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2016/08/how-many-will-be-saved-christs-answer.html

Both are small things in appearance but both have the capacity of making a big difference and even a great impact. Each follower of Christ – when we are true to our identity – can be like the mustard seed and the yeast. In our own situation, we can and are called to transform our world.

Now That Is the Right Question! A FRIAR'S LIFE - August 20, 2016 ... narrow and we have to do the hard work to be ready to walk through it. But, the gate is open and it is the right size for each of us to walk through. All we have to do is follow the person ahead of us through that gate; and that person is Jesus. We can feel like those who were turned away who said, "But, we ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets." We might feel the same way, "Lord, we have eaten Your Body and we drank of Your Blood and You taught in our Church. Isn't this ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2016/08/now-that-is-right-question.html
