The Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary BATTLE BEADS BLOG - March 25, 2017 The fact of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is related in Luke 1:26-38.

Mary was of the house of David, and was espoused (i.e. married) to Joseph, of the same royal family. She ...http://battlebeads.blogspot.com/2017/03/the-annunciation-of-blessed-virgin-mary.html

So Hard THIS CROSS I EMBRACE - March 25, 2017 Robbie is an angel. He is seriously just about the easiest kid I could have been blessed with. He doesn't complain when we're cooped up indoors and I'm working on my computer for days on end, nor does he protest being carted all over the place or dropped off for babysitting quickly and randomly. Being his mom has been easy. Being a divorcing mom has been hard as hell. Gerund emphasized. As, it seems, it shall stretch on and on and on... It pains me that I ...http://thiscrossiembrace.blogspot.com/2017/03/so-hard.html

Fatima: Sacrifices for Souls CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - March 11, 2017 The Collects at Mass during these early days of Lent remind us very much of the character of self-denial that is a feature of this season. The recently adopted English translations appear to me to bring this out with a clarity that represents a strength of those translations. The Collect for the Friday of the first week of Lent reads: Grant that your faithful, O Lord, we pray, may be so conformed to the paschal observances, that the bodily discipline ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2017/03/fatima-sacrifices-for-souls.html

A plenary indulgence remits all temporal punishment due to personal sins. Prayer Before a Crucifix/Prayer to Christ Crucified.

A Southern Catholic Thing SMALLER MANHATTANS - February 12, 2017 Not Seminary Ridge Last month I found myself way in the back of the church a couple of minutes before Mass started. We typically arrive about 15 minutes early and sit near the front where I can see without glasses, so the back is a mysterious and alien place. When I came in, the organist was playing the last notes of the prelude, then stopped. At this point, the whole church was dim, quiet, and packed. In front of me was the priest, a couple of deacons, ...http://platytera.blogspot.com/2017/02/a-southern-catholic-thing.html

Starting Right Now I'll Be Strong! ALWAYS A JOY... - January 16, 2017 There are some of us who constantly worry about the future - about being financially secure and healthy in our old age and in the other extreme is some who rarely think about what could happen when we reach the golden years of our life. Until two years ago, I was in the latter category. I was constantly asked throughout my fulltime ministry here by family and practically every friend of mine had asked me over the past 12 years similar questions - "What about your future ...http://alwaysajoy.blogspot.com/2017/01/starting-right-now-ill-be-strong.html

An Appeal for the Heart That Conquered Death: Reflections for a Catholic New Year A CATHOLIC LIFE - January 1, 2017 As the world dives further into a century of "progress" and uncharted horizons, mankind continues its dissent from God, which is eerily reminiscent of the words of Jesus Christ: "What profit is there for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? What could one give in exchange for his life? Whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this faithless and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/8p_U26e9w6s/an-appeal-for-heart-that-conquered.html

All that is created was created so that we could experience Your love, Your power, Your majesty, but above all Your mercy and tender compassion.

'Closed Heart, Open Heart' (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - December 18, 2016 ... theme of this homily could be summarized as, "Closed Heart, Open Heart." In the first reading, we have a closed heart, in King Ahaz. The background is this: his country is in deep trouble, and he has set his mind on a course that Isaiah has come to talk him out of. That's why Isaiah offers to give him a sign – any sign he chooses. But Ahaz refuses. A closed heart. But Joseph, in the Gospel, has an open heart. Joseph has just found out something that ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/12/closed-heart-open-heart-sunday-homily.html

The Earliest Account of St. Juan Diego's Vision at Guadalupe GLORIA ROMANORUM - December 9, 2016 Codex Escalada ~ The earliest known representation of the vision of Our Lady of Guadalupe. December 9 is the feast of St. Juan Diego, visionary of Guadalupe whose famous tilma may be seen to this day in the basilica at Tepeyac hill. I was fortunate enough to be able to see the tilma on a visit to Mexico City in 1988, though it was enclosed in a glass case about 15 feet overhead and you had to get on a moving walkway to see it. Following is ...http://gloriaromanorum.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-earliest-account-of-st-juan-diegos.html

Why Is Saint Nicholas the Patron of Children? SERVANT AND STEWARD - December 6, 2016 As part of my ministry as Parochial Vicar of St. Agnes Parish, I try to visit each of the grade school classes at least once each month. Sometimes I can do so, and sometimes I cannot. This afternoon, I had the pleasure of visiting with one of the third grade classes who asked me to talk to them about Saint Nicholas, today being his feast day. I began, of course, with the biographical basics, that he was Bishop of Myra and how he gave generously to women so they could ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/AqFC7QgSQrk/why-is-saint-nicholas-patron-of-children.html

A Few Book Reviews BACK BAY VIEW - December 6, 2016 ... of Mariette in Ecstasy , one of my favorite books by Ron Hansen, in The Paris Review . The link was shared from the Image update. Not only is the book good, but the review by Nick Ripatrazone captures one of the reasons why so well: the strangeness of Catholicism. As the culture becomes more and more secular, it becomes harder and harder to live in it without standing out and harder and harder to explain what it means to be Catholic. Reason seems to be a lost ...http://backbayview.blogspot.com/2016/12/a-few-book-reviews.html

Before now, I never realized that his use of eyewitness accounts meant that what we are reading is truly MARY'S ACCOUNT of the Annunciation, the Visitation and the Nativity!
