The Benedict Option IVY ROSARY - April 28, 2017 ... the world today have become so hostile to the message of Jesus that the only option is to create, as Benedict did, islands of faith and devotion apart from that world. The author is just about as hard on the "conservative" politics of our day as on the "liberal" side. Liberals have sold out to a secularist, pagan, sex-obsessed world view that is very similar to the world-view dominant in the late Roman Empire, the period when Benedict lived. But conservatives have sold out equally to an ...http://ivyrosary.blogspot.com/2017/04/the-benedict-option.html

Ahh, Friday Night! CONFESSIONS OF A CATHOLIC MUTT - March 31, 2017 ... wetness (thankfully!) I'm so glad to see the rain, that I don't even mind it usurping a Saturday. It also means that my plans for tomorrow are really limited. I do plan to hit up the climbing gym, but since my notes are done and I have leftovers that need to be eaten, I don't have to do quite as much of my usual cooking and catch up stuff. I get to sleep until I wake up tomorrow morning, and then get out of bed when I good and well feel ready and I'm done reading whatever it is that I decide ...http://catholicmutt.blogspot.com/2017/03/ahh-friday-night.html

Reflection for the 3rd Week of Lent, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - March 19, 2017 ... and those who require more of it could be given up as lost causes. But Jesus has other ideas. No, He tells Peter, not seven times but seventy-seven times. The Greek text actually suggests something even more dramatic: seventy times seven times. In other words, Jesus says that we are to forgive a huge number of times, a number much more than we would want to or feel necessary. In Greek parlance, this number actually doesn't refer to any particular number at all but is symbolic ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2017/03/reflection-for-3rd-week-of-lent-part-1.html

"The Moral Dry Rot in Academia -- And Beyond -- Goes Far Deeper Than Student Storm Troopers at One College" THECHURCHMILITANT - March 16, 2017 ... against people whose ideas they disagree with, because they can just dismiss those ideas, with some characterization that there is no one on hand to challenge. Professor William Julius Wilson of Harvard, for example, said of Justice Clarence Thomas, "He'll say he pulled himself up by his own bootstraps. I say I was in the right place at the right time." Just where did Justice Thomas say that he pulled himself up by his own bootstraps? The central theme of his ...http://thechurchmilitant.blogspot.com/2017/03/the-moral-dry-rot-in-academia-and.html

Live Today Well, Chapter 7... LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - March 8, 2017 It's hard to believe that we're already in the first full week of Lent. I can already get a gauge: A few things are going really well. Others are...not. #typical But onward we press, Christian soldiers! Today we are at Chapter 7, so about halfway through our book. And we're focusing here: "On Work: And Taking Spiritual Repose." I thought it was an interesting dichotomy between the two parts of that title. When I'm at work, I'm not thinking about repose. I'm thinking about ...http://www.lifeofacatholiclibrarian.com/2017/03/live-today-well-chapter-7.html

Lent Does Not Have to Be a Dreary Time! Want Some Positive Ideas? ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - March 1, 2017 Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. Many of us look at this period on the Church calendar as a time of suffering and deprivation. Lent has historically been synonymous with a desert experience of dryness; a sense of loneliness, as if God is on vacation somewhere else. This connotes a sense of negativity. Yet, Lent affords us so much more, if we are willing to open our minds, hearts and souls to the various opportunities that make ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2017/03/lent-does-not-have-to-be-dreary-time.html

Ashes for Elders--An Ash Wednesday Reflection THE WANDERING FRIAR - March 1, 2017 ... myself asking the question, "So what does Lent mean after all these years. How can people who are getting along in years observe this special season?" Needless to say, like everyone else, we are supposed to turn to prayer, almsgiving and fasting. I would like to suggest thought that there is a particular framework that might be helpful for those of us who have lived through sixty, seventy, eighty or more Lenten seasons.

A simple Lent Chain might be the way to go! It sure has been for us through the years.

Deacon Bob's Homily for the 8th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Cycle A CATHOLIC FAITH AND REFLECTIONS - February 26, 2017 ... forgets us, never! As our first reading told us, his love for us is stronger than the natural love a mother has for her child. When Jesus tells us to not worry, what he is saying, I believe, is we must rest in God . Rest in God! What does this mean? God knows the antidote to chronic worry and anxiety is resting in the presence of someone who is stable, available, accepting, and reassuring. God knows the antidote to worry and anxiety is not numbing our anxiety with frantic activity, drugs, ...http://bob.yerhot.org/2017/02/deacon-bobs-homily-for-the-8th-sunday-of-ordinary-time-cycle-a/
