Thursday, August 17, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - August 16, 2017 Thursday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time (Joshua 3:7-10a.11.13-17; Matthew 18:21-19:1) Thanks to Cecil B. De Mille most people know that the Bible depicts the Red Sea splitting in two so that the Israelites might escape the Egyptian charioteers. Few, however, are aware of the Jordan River parting so the God's Chosen Ones might enter the Promised Land. The first reading today from the Book of Joshua tells this second story. The responsorial psalm ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/08/thursday-august-17-2017.html

"United" Means ... DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - August 13, 2017 ... what the word what was understood to mean: about an 80% agreement on critical matters (or at least some huge majority). Therefore, no national law could be passed without an 80% approval of Congress. (Of course, that means THIS Congress could go home and run for re-election for the rest of their terms, since they agree to agree on nothing.) No 80% agreement; no federal law. No more 51% voting for something that the other 49% pays for. No more Supreme Court finding everything has National ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2017/08/united-means.html

Elijah placed himself at the entrance to the cave in Mount Horeb, the very mountain where God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses and where the covenant was ratified and sealed in blood. Here, surely, the Lord would be found and Elijah might find comfort as his enemies openly plotted his death. He cried out, saying, "I have been most zealous for the LORD, the God of hosts, but the Israelites have forsaken your covenant, torn down your ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/MUjHkcUJ28U/homily-13-august-2017-nineteenth-sunday.html

The Natural VIDEO MELIORA, PROBOQUE; DETERIORA SEQUOR - August 13, 2017 ... of God made flesh." Our pastor mentioned this is his favorite passage of the Old Testament; it's never been mine simply because I've read it as a buzzkill, an pseudo-announcement of the limiting of the supernatural. "But Momma, that's where the fun is" to quote Springsteen. Or so I thought, having a too transcendent view of God. It sometimes seems the hardest part of Christianity is accepting God's use of the unspectacular "natural" means to effect his will. (Of course God whispering, as he ...http://poncer.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-natural.html

Pope Benedict XVI on the Walking on the Water: "With Your Strength Alone You Cannot Rise. Hold Tight to the Hand of Chri BIG C CATHOLICS - August 12, 2017 ... delivered from the Papal Residence, Castel Gandolfo on Sunday, August 7, 2011. ________________________________________ In this Sunday's Gospel we find Jesus who, after withdrawing to the mountain, prays throughout the night. The Lord, having distanced himself from the people and the disciples, manifests his communion with the Father and the need to pray in solitude, far from the commotion of the world. This distancing, however, must not be seen as a lack of interest in ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/08/pope-benedict-xvi-on-walking-on-water.html

Homily - 6 August 2017 - The Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord SERVANT AND STEWARD - August 6, 2017 ... Peter, James, and John were allowed to see upon Mount Tabor, upon the only mountain in Galilee, a mountain whose name means "the coming light." [1] Because the Lord himself prepared his chosen companions, they could look upon the brilliant beauty and splendor of his face; they were given the privilege of seeing what "many prophets and righteous men longed to see … and did not see it" ( Matthew 13:17 ). Mount Tabor Throughout his Gospel, the Evangelist ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/FQCYuMx1STY/homily-6-august-2017-feast-of.html

They always sound like so much fun—until they begin. Then you find out your companion likes the vehicle five degrees warmer or colder than you do. You find out that she's really a morning person, up and chirpy and ready to go before the sun's up.

Homily - 30 July 2017 - The Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A) SERVANT AND STEWARD - July 30, 2017 The Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A) Dear brothers and sisters, No farmer works the soil expecting to find a treasure buried there (cf. Matthew 13:44 ). Likewise, no merchant has high expectations of finding "a pearl of great price" ( Matthew 13:45 ). When they do find such an item, the joy they experience comes from the unexpectedness of such a find in the midst of the ordinary pursuits of life; the discovery of a treasure – be it an ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/-2UNg_p-9Rc/homily-30-july-2017-seventeenth-sunday.html

Friday, July 21, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - July 20, 2017 Friday of the Fifteenth Week in Ordinary Time (Exodus 11:10-12:14; Matthew 12:1-8) The name April comes from the Latin aprilis which is derived from the word meaning to open . It is thought that the month was called April because it was the time when flowers began to open (bloom). Because the Passover feast is usually celebrated during April as are Good Friday and Easter Sunday, another sense of opening is indicated. The events associated with these days ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/07/friday-july-21-2017.html

It is safe to assume that the author of Matthew conceived of the large crowds as exclusively Jewish. In other words, these are the people who should've looked and seen; who should have heard and understood, but they did not. Only the small band of disciples, who were themselves Jews (Matthew is a Jewish Gospel written for ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/07/year-fifteenth-sunday-in-ordinary-time_16.html

Friday, July 14, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - July 13, 2017 Friday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time (Genesis 46:1-7.28-20; Matthew 10:16-23) A Mexican child will answer the call of a parent by saying, " Mande ," meaning, "Send (me)." The implication is that the child will do whatever he is commanded. We find this willingness to comply in the first reading when Israel responds to the call of the Lord, "Here I am." In other often quoted biblical texts, Samuel goes to Eli saying, "Here I am. I ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/07/friday-july-14-2017.html

Reaching to the Heavens YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - July 10, 2017 ... The faith that the official (Mark and Luke tell us his name is Jairus) and the bleeding woman have in Jesus is now the ladder connecting the miracles made possible. Jesus becomes the physical and spiritual ladder that they reach out to touch and to climb. Today, Jesus brings Jairus' daughter back down to earth on the stairway that would have carried her to heaven. This is one of only three times Jesus performs such a miracle. The other times involve the widow Nain's son and Lazarus. Those who ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2017/07/reaching-to-heavens.html

Mercy, Not Condemnation by Colleen O'Sullivan YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - July 7, 2017 ... Time Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures forever. (Psalm 106:1b) As Jesus passed by, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post. He said to him, "Follow me." And he got up and followed him. While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat with Jesus and his disciples. The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" He heard this and said, "Those ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2017/07/mercy-not-condemnation-by-colleen.html

In reality it is a very important step in nation-building. People have to own land before they will identify themselves with it. They will revere as sacred the places where they bury their fathers and mothers. There they will tell the stories which add meaning to life and bind themselves to ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/07/friday-july-7-2017.html

Thursday, July 6, 2017 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - July 5, 2017 Thursday of the Thirteenth Week in Ordinary Time (Genesis 22:1b-19; Matthew 9:1-8) Mass murderers are regularly reported as hearing voices. They are directed by what they often explain as a divine command to commit an atrocity. Abraham seems to hear such a dark order in today's first reading. The passage, sometimes called by its Hebrew name Akeda meaning binding , challenges interpreters. They rightly ask, "How could a just God suggest to anyone that he ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/07/thursday-july-6-2017.html

Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ COMMUNIO - July 1, 2017 ... with his apostolic letter "Inde a Primis" (June 30, 1960), explained its meaning and approved the litanies of the Precious Blood of Christ. Benedict XVI said of this devotion: The theme of blood linked to that of the Paschal Lamb is of primary importance in sacred Scripture. In the Old Testament the sprinkling of the blood of sacrificed animals represented and established the covenant between God and the people, as one reads in the Book of Exodus: "Then Moses took the blood ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2017/07/most-precious-blood-of-jesus-christ/
