...and on the Way... AUNTIE JOANNA WRITES - June 17, 2017 ... to them even when they were new, and a language all their own: saints seemed invariably to have been pious from their toddler years or even if they were naughty it was only in a very pious sort of way (disobediently hurrying to the beach to put pebbles to put in their shoes as a penance, or something). And statements of moral teaching had a tone of mild contempt for anyone who might disagree, with an enjoyable dash of rather old-fashioned style and phraseology. Then things ...http://joannabogle.blogspot.com/2017/06/and-on-way.html

Just Because the Story Seems Strange, Doesn't Mean It Isn't True SERVANT AND STEWARD - June 15, 2017 The hagiographies of the Saints are filled with a wide variety of interactions between humans and animals, some of which seem rather fanciful, such as the talking camel found in the legend of Saints Cosmas and Damian or the donkey who knelt before the Eucharist for Saint Anthony of Padua. Some modern people happily write off these stories as pure imagination, giving them no credence whatever. While acknowledging they are a bit strange, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/BWqTvalk_yE/just-because-story-seems-strange-doesnt.html

Relating to Saints With a Past ┬áVENERABLE MATT TALBOT RESOURCE CENTER - June 10, 2017 ... saints who are rough around the edges; it is easier for me to relate to them. St. Augustine, St. Ignatius, Venerable Matt Talbot, whoever it is, I love saints with rough backgrounds because it gives me hope that I can be a saint too. Paul assisted in the stoning of St. Stephen and he zealously persecuted Christians, hunting them down and dragging them from their homes. Paul was basically a murderer and a bully! And God looked at Paul and thought, "Now there is ...http://venerablematttalbotresourcecenter.blogspot.com/2017/06/preferring-saints-with-past.html

The Caligula Toper TEA AT TRIANON - June 8, 2017 ... days, like saints' days or major holidays. The volume's slim size — it fits in your palm — suggests it could have been used by a single person, such as a soloist. The text is accompanied by musical notation, called 'neumes'. Although some neumes look like modern musical notes, they had a slightly different use and functioned more as an aide-mémoire for someone who already knew the tune.

Fourteen Holy Helpers A CATHOLIC LIFE - June 6, 2017 What is the devotion known as the 14 Holy Helpers Devotion? To modern Catholics who have seen much of their heritage forgotten and neglected - especially over the last 100 years - few likely have heard of the 14 Holy Helpers. But the 14 Holy Helpers are a group of fourteen saints who are patrons against various diseases. Devotion to the 14 Holy Helpers originated in the 14th century largely as a result of the Black Death (the bubonic plague). The ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/_PxGweCdGF8/fourteen-holy-helpers.html

Reflection for the Solemnities of the Most Holy Trinity and the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ BIG C CATHOLICS - June 5, 2017 ... Son, Jesus Christ, who redeemed the world; and God the Holy Spirit who sustains the world. The human mind can grasp this mystery so far. Wait! There's more. These are not three gods but one God in three persons. They are one God who has existed from all time. This is the beauty of the mystery of the Trinity: Father, Son, and Spirit are in complete unity and act together as one. And then there is the celebration of the Body and Blood of Christ. Again, this article of faith will stretch the ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/06/reflection-for-solemnities-of-most-holy.html

At the Vanguard of Catholic Renewal NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - June 5, 2017 ... we believe, and what we believe informs how we live. Orthodoxy in fact originally means right worship as well as right doctrine. Being an orthodox Catholic is far more than just adhering to the most recent Catechism promulgated by Petrine authority. It means turning one's life into a liturgical offering of praise. To doxologize in the company of the saints, allowing time-honored forms of prayer to shape one's mind and heart, is to be orthodox. To throw one's hat in with a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/_BhaJavDbdY/at-vanguard-of-catholic-renewal.html

"Pope Francis, Pray for Us"??? MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - June 2, 2017 ... ought to go to God's Son. I used to think canonizations were exercises in papal infallibility. That confidence has been completely eroded. The modern Church has pushed its credibility on this score past the breaking point, with John Paul II himself, sadly, leading the way via removing the Devil's Advocate. Another example of how the Church's leaders do not seem overly keen to protect its enduring credibility in an age of disbelief. I just don't get it. Sanctity should not need ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2017/06/pope-francis-pray-for-us.html

Does the Christian Tradition Have a Problem With Smiling and Laughing? NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - May 29, 2017 ... playfulness, marriage and virginity. It will not do to speak or act dismissively towards either side; neither will it do to arrive at an idiosyncratic interpretation that arises from ignorance and lack of thought. It seems to me that there are profound reasons why Our Lord, Our Lady, and the saints are normally depicted with serious (but bright and penetrating) countenances and that the exceptions do not cancel out this fundamental rule. Immense inward joy is not at all ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/bnJ98OYQqDk/does-christian-tradition-have-problem.html

Fatima Vigil on the 100th Anniversary. ABBEY ROADS - May 12, 2017 ... Immaculate Heart is the paradise of God, the garden enclosed, at the center of which is the tree of life, Jesus Christ - our way, our truth and our life. St. Louis de Montfort explains what I am trying to say more clearly and doctrinally: Mary is God's garden of Paradise, his own unspeakable world, into which his Son entered to do wonderful things, to tend it and to take his delight in it. He created a world for the wayfarer, that is, the one we are living in. He created a second world - ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2017/05/fatima-vigil-on-100th-anniversary.html

Pray for Priests, Pray for Holy Priests THAT THE BONES YOU HAVE CRUSHED MAY THRILL - May 12, 2017 ... Saints consider within themselves such earthly cares as the intricacies or perversities of human sexuality they experienced on Earth while beholding now the Face of God. It would be to them like reminding a man madly in love with a woman that once he was terribly lonely. The loneliness is forgotten now. All he knows now is the love of his beloved. If these men and women were 'gay' on Earth, they are only now 'gay' in Heaven in the sense that they are happy, more fulfilled, ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2017/05/pray-for-priests-pray-for-holy-priests.html

Mary's Role in the Creation of Christian Community - An Alternative to the Benedict Option NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - May 9, 2017 The Marian Option - God's Solution to a Civilization in Crisis by Dr Carrie Gress. The theme of a crisis in modern culture seems to be resonating in more than just Christian circles at the moment. Rod Dreher's Benedict Option book, published this March, is in the New York Times bestseller list, and I saw articles about it this past week in the Spectator in the UK, and the New Yorker magazine. The book was written to capture the spirit of the huge response to an idea that ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/2BDKo87uQEM/marys-role-in-creation-of-christian.html

The Danger of Activism, for the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - May 1, 2017 ... O'Brien It may seem paradoxical to assert that the feast of St. Joseph the Worker is not a glorification of work. Whenever we celebrate the saints in glory, we remember their valiant labors on earth, but we celebrate their eternal rest in God and the most intense activity of all, that face-to-face vision of the Most Holy Trinity in which the saints, without ceasing to be enraptured in the First and Last and All, see our needs and intercede for us in union with ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/4MIEfApExOU/the-danger-of-activism-for-feast-of-st.html

Sts. Cletus and Marcellinus A CATHOLIC LIFE - April 26, 2017 ... the education of youth is made independent of all moral teaching; the religious element is rejected from life as an intrusion: and all this is done with such a show of reasonableness that thousands of well-minded Christians are led to be its advocates, timid perhaps and partial, but still its advocates." "Preserve us, O holy martyrs! from being the dupes of this artful impiety. It was not in vain that our Jesus suffered death, and rose again from the grave. Surely after this He deserves to be ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/0dbpM7F6hxM/sts-cletus-and-marcellinus.html

How Material Things Can Lead Us to God CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 26, 2017 ... that are all around us. She had read the stories of the saints and how they often scorned material things. Since we are all called to be saints, she reasoned, then eventually we must all adopt a life detached from the world like that of monks, nuns or priests. However, this is difficult to do because people derive joy from eating, buying things or enjoying beautiful music, for example, all of which are normal activities for those living in society. The dilemma ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/2EX8JTBdVK0/material-things-can-lead-us-god

Saint John the Baptist De La Salle, Patron of Teachers BIG C CATHOLICS - April 6, 2017 http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/04/saint-john-baptist-de-la-salle-patron.html

Is Anyone Catholic Anymore? CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 6, 2017 ... his theory of the anonymous Christian, and Hans Urs von Balthasar tended toward universalism. Put the two together, drop scholarly nuance, and everyone becomes a budding Catholic saint. This second view seems to have caught on within the Church, as evidenced by vanishing concern with conversion, denunciations of "proselytism," and praise for atheists, along with strong emphasis on ecumenical and interfaith solidarity. The idea seems to be that it's small-minded and possibly malicious to make ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/YxvZqpZoRVY/is-anyone-catholic

St. Isidore of Seville, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, "The Schoolmaster of the Middle Ages" BIG C CATHOLICS - April 3, 2017 Though it might seem strange to reach back to the late seventh and early eighth centuries for a patron saint of something as modern as computers and the Internet, one of the names suggested for just such patronage is Saint Isidore of Seville. Born in Spain around the year 560, St. Isidore amassed in his lifetime such a treasure trove of knowledge that he is referred to as "The Schoolmaster of the Middle Ages." For anyone who relies on a computer search engine to ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/04/st-isidore-of-seville-bishop-and-doctor.html

The Roman Amphitheater of Pola and Persecution Denial GLORIA ROMANORUM - March 30, 2017 ... century. Neale set his tale in the Roman city of Pola (modern day Pula in Croatia), whose fantastically preserved Roman ruins exist to this day. Indeed, the climax of the novel takes place in the magnificent amphitheater of Pola, whose size and state of preservation rivals even the great Colosseum in Rome, as can be seen in the photo above. And indeed, we know of at least one martyrdom that took place in this amphitheater, namely that of Germanus in AD 284. So while a work of ...http://gloriaromanorum.blogspot.com/2017/03/the-roman-amphitheater-of-pola-and.html
