Living the Creative Tension: Twelve Years a Deacon Καθολικός διάκονος - January 24, 2016 ... (but not always), old or new, worth handing on. Every Sunday I try to post a reflection on the Sunday readings. Sometimes one or both is just too much with everything else I have going on in my life. Instead of a Friday traditio , this week I posted a Saturday morning one. Instead of a reflection on three very long readings, especially on a Sunday on which I had no liturgical or teaching duties, I am posting a reflection on something else. Besides, my Friday ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/01/living-creative-tension-twelve-years.html

A Day in the Life... BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - January 8, 2016 Here's my day (so far)... First stop, after the bathroom, was the church sacristy. I turned on the lights and put on my vestments for Holy Mass. As I am in the habit of preparing my chalice the day before, I only needed to double-check it. Then I sat down to pray the Divine Office. As the faithful are usually praying the Rosary about this time, I pray in the sacristy, contemplating the crucifix and the relics that are kept there. The seminarians, home ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/01/a-day-in-life.html

The Feast of the Epiphany: What Will You Give to the Lord? VOX NOVA - January 3, 2016 ... earlier–in fact, as soon as I posted the last one, I went to check out the readings for today. Today is the Feast of the Epiphany, the revelation of Jesus in the Incarnation to the world. In many parts of the world, particularly in Italy, Spain and throughout Latin America, this feast is celebrated on January 6, bringing to an end the twelve days of Christmas. In these countries it is also called the Feast of the Three Kings, and Christmas gifts are exchanged on this day ...http://vox-nova.com/2016/01/03/the-feast-of-the-epiphany-what-will-you-give-to-the-lord/

Stand, Sit, Kneel, Repeat… Why Catholics Do the Things They Do SEASONS OF GRACE - December 16, 2015 If you're a non-Catholic attending the Catholic Mass for the first time, chances are you notice this: On cue, people stand up; they sit back down; they kneel; then they stand…. The curious onlooker might wonder what is the Secret Code that Catholics flash to one another, to achieve such uniformity in such complex circumstances. My Irish aunt used to joke about it, her irreverent but good-natured banter extracting humor from our Sunday ritual. ...http://kathyschiffer.com/why-do-catholics-do-that/stand-sit-kneel-repeat-why-catholics-do-the-things-they-do/

An Advent Examination of Conscience NARU HODO - December 13, 2015 ... gift of a St. John in my life. This line especially: "We should take our lesson from St. John the Baptist. He is thought to be the Christ; he declares he is not what they think. He does not take advantage of their mistake to further his own glory." I could never really put into words how that made me weep, but consider how not only easy but common it is for one person to take advantage of another, but what an act of love and honor of God it is to choose to humble oneself rather than hurt ...http://lift-up-your-hearts.blogspot.com/2015/12/an-advent-examination-of-conscience.html

Beat Your Own Breast NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - December 7, 2015 ... readings that call us to vigilance, I would like to have a look at one of the "lost gestures" of the Roman Rite which, thanks be to God, is now making a comeback. Why do we beat our breasts? Many years ago, Fr. Cassian Folsom, O.S.B., prior of the Monastery of Norcia, wrote a lovely article entitled "Sacred Signs and Active Participation at Mass: What Do These Actions Mean, and Why Are They So Important?" Apropos our topic, Fr. Cassian says: This is a sign of ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/1QM_2Ifxu8o/beat-your-own-breast.html

A Catholic Praise Tradition? NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - December 3, 2015 ... present through human interaction (support, community, etc). But ultimately this is madness. As Chesterton wrote in Orthodoxy, "The poet only asks to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head, and it is his head that splits." God has already made a way for us to get our heads (and someday, please God, our whole body) into the heavens, and that way is faith. The psalms are a sort of litmus test, a way to show our faith in action; it is ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/xNaF5ybmdv8/a-catholic-praise-tradition_3.html

A Confirmation Story: Why I Left the Church Shortly After JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - November 22, 2015 ... was to receive the Eucharist. I looked forward to more classes in preparation for my Confirmation but it was never meant to be. Did I go to confession prior to being confirmed? No. Did I go to classes? Unless an hour meeting the night before counts (in which they asked me questions I had no answers to), the answer is "no." Did I get to pick out a confirmation saint? No, because they don't do that in Mexico. And so I was confirmed and I was not happy. I ended up unofficially leaving the Church ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/11/a-confirmation-story-why-i-left-church.html

Closing Mass of the Synod: What the People Sow Today in Tears, They Will Reap Tomorrow in Joy VIS NEWS - HOLY SEE PRESS OFFICE - October 26, 2015 Vatican City, 24 October 2015 (VIS) – This Sunday the Pope celebrated Mass for the conclusion of the 14th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. In his homily, he reflects on the day's three readings that show us the compassion and paternity of God, revealed in Jesus. "In the midst of a national disaster, the people deported by their enemies, the prophet Jeremiah proclaims that 'the Lord has saved His people, the remnant of Israel'. Why did ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/10/closing-mass-of-synod-what-people-sow.html

Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, Pray for the Synod on the Family CRISIS MAGAZINE - October 20, 2015 ... first married couple in history to be canonized together. The Martins represent the kind of saintly family that our mother the Church calls us to become. Their lives involved many hardships, particularly the early deaths of four of their nine children. All five of their surviving children entered religious life. Curiously, Pope Francis in his homily during the canonization mass focused on the readings of the day and only mentioned the new ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/AGT0DIywCuE/saints-louis-and-zelie-martin-pray-for-the-synod-on-the-family

Year I Twenty-Seventh Friday in Ordinary Time Καθολικός διάκονος - October 9, 2015 Readings Joel 1:13-15. 2:1-2; Ps 9:2-3.8(16).8-9; Luke 11:15-26 Today's first reading, from the Book of the Prophet Joel, sounds a little scary. In this passage Joel, who was a prophet in Israel before the time of Jesus, is calling the priests of Israel to repentance, to return to God, to be faithful to their covenant with God. A covenant is simply a solemn, binding, and formal agreement entered into by two parties. The covenant between God and Israel ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/10/year-i-twenty-seventh-friday-in.html

Martyr or Idolater? GETTING TO THE POINT - October 8, 2015 It is Liturgy Day on the blog – Thursdays we go through the Mass, bit by bit, with an eye to see how the rites of the liturgy are to inform and form our lives. Last week we were talking about the Gospel rite. I will invoke blogger's privilege at this point (i.e. 'it's my blog and I'll write what I want to') to skip over the homily and go right to the Creed. The homily, after all, only has one purpose, and that is to make precisely the connections I'm trying to make ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/10/martyr-or-idolater.html
