Looking to Heaven Brings Blessings to Earth CRISIS MAGAZINE - May 11, 2016 ... to the anagogical sense of Scripture but also to the subject of heaven in general. Upon reflecting on my neglect of the latter, I realized I wasn't alone among those in Christian leadership, and though the reasons for this omission are diverse, in my case, one came to the fore. When a priest or pastor, who really cares about his flock, looks out at them on a Sunday morning, there sometimes is a tendency to focus on their immediate needs—difficulties in marriage, family, work, finances, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/G8E6RDGAp1U/looking-heaven-brings-blessings-earth
An Atheist's Last Stand: Jennifer Fulwiler's Journey to the Catholic Church SEASONS OF GRACE - April 7, 2016 "What was wrong with me that I had to leave a place that I loved in many ways because I couldn't be around religious people? Why was I always so close to an existential crisis that I couldn't function like a normal person? Nobody struggled with that kind of thing. The other atheists I knew didn't seem to have any problem with the fleetingness of human life. I'd never met anyone else who seemed troubled by the insanity of religious fervor, or who had their thoughts ...http://kathyschiffer.com/books-film/an-atheists-last-stand-jennifer-fulwilers-journey-to-the-catholic-church/
Spes Salvi & Progress BETHUNE CATHOLIC - February 25, 2016 ... mysterious diseases, vanishing species: The list of fixable perils grows longer with each year. Technologies of abundance altered our existence but came at a cost that is only now being more accurately counted. This tension-between the glories of our engineered lives and the price to be paid for them-is the essential drama of our times. Now I might add to the list of terrors (note some listed are man-made, others are not), and I might dispute that "the tension ...http://bethunecatholic.blogspot.com/2016/02/spes-salvi-progress.html
Homily for February 14 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - February 14, 2016 ... And how well they fit God? How well do they fit us? Are you and I clothed in: benevolence blessing charity clemency compassion forgiveness generosity goodwill grace leniency pity sympathy tolerance favor forbearance gentleness humanity kindness mildness tenderness relief pardon Are we clothed in these garments? Is this how we're dressed? Or is my heart clothed in "garments" that would better be removed?

Pope Benedict XVI GLORIA OLIVAE - February 11, 2016 ... ascetico-theological principle. This principle states that one who knows the 'Will of God' will never resign from doing God's Will. No one can resign from the work of preaching the Word of God, or resign from saving souls, or resign from guiding the Church or resign from doing battle for the Church or resign from being Charitable or resign from being human or resign from being a saint. St. Thomas wrote that a bishop cannot resign being a bishop; he is obliged to continue becoming a perfect ...http://odondecastro.blogspot.com/2016_02_01_archive.html#7797931083289491295
Reflection 13, February 7, 2016, 16th Sunday of Matthew, the Parable of the Talents PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - February 9, 2016 ... sometimes I do not! I do even worse when I struggle. Too often I depend upon myself. Often, I do not even enlist the help of others. I am a product of my culture and we are individualists to the core. And so, it seems that I am conditioned to solve my problems by myself. The Christian, the human person, is not an island. We have the Lord, the saints, other people, our families, and friends to help us. How we do this depends on many factors, but let us not turn away in fear. ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2016/02/reflection-13-february-7-2016-16th.html
