Memorial of St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe, Priest and Martyr HAPPY CATHOLIC* - August 14, 2017 ... commandant and said, "I am a Catholic priest. Let me take his place. I am old. He has a wife and children." It took the prisoners over two weeks to die, imprisoned with no food or water, but the sounds of hymns and prayers came from the room until only Father Kolbe was left. The room was needed for more prisoners so he was killed by injection and his body was burned in the crematorium. I often think of what a blessing his presence was and what a difference he made in helping those men in their ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2017/08/memorial-of-st-maximilian-mary-kolbe.html

Too Funny. Media Shows Biblical Illiteracy in Attempt to Slam Bible CREATIVE MINORITY REPORT - August 7, 2017 In the past week (ok, I'm a little late with this story but hey, I've got five needy kids who like to eat three times a day and don't like to clean up after themselves) we've seen a slew of news stories about how THE BIBLE HAS BEEN PROVEN WRONG BY SCIENCE!!! The allegation stems from a discovery that shows that Canaanites DNA lives on, despite the Bible saying the Canaanites were wiped out. One problem: the Bible specifically says that the Canaanites survived. But let's ...http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2017/08/too-funny-media-shows-biblical.html

Reflection for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Christ Saves Peter From Drowning, August 13, 2017 BIG C CATHOLICS - August 6, 2017 ... about? Peter's call to Jesus is the call each of us should make when we realize we cannot go it alone. First, it is clear that Peter loved Jesus. Peter left behind his fishing boat and career and followed Jesus unreservedly. Jesus was an itinerant preacher whose acceptance in society and among religious authorities was questioned. It is evident that Peter was overwhelmed with grace in His presence and was inspired to follow Him. Peter was filled with passion, zeal, and love for the Lord. The ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/08/reflection-for-19th-sunday-in-ordinary.html

How Rich Is Rich? THE SPIRIT'S SWORD - July 30, 2017 ... corrupt, financially corrupt. There is one thing that Christ and all the Christian saints have said with a sort of savage monotony. They have said simply that to be rich is to be in peculiar danger of moral wreck. It is not demonstrably un-Christian to kill the rich as violators of definable justice. It is not demonstrably un-Christian to crown the rich as convenient rulers of society. It is not certainly un-Christian to rebel against the rich or to submit to the rich. But it is quite ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheSpiritsSword/~3/oL8dse96aGM/how-rich-is-rich.html

The Immortal in You demonstrates how an astute use of common sense and a study of common human experience reveal that there is more to you—much more—than science could possibly say. From the author of Who Designed the Designer?, this modern response to the ancient exhortation "Know thyself" delivers a wealth of fresh, powerful, and uplifting ideas about what it is to be human, which will engage thoughtful ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2017/07/new-the-immortal-in-you-how-human-nature-is-more-than-science-can-say-by-michael-augros.html

Like the other Honey Ridge books there is one story set in the modern day (Valery and Grayon's story of course) and one set in the Civil War era. I enjoyed the book and the series and based on the author's note, I suspect this will be the last Honey Ridge book, unfortunately. I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/ngaR/~3/H6de-zdFzvg/review-innkeepers-sister.html

Our Holy Father Saint Elijah MOUNT CARMEL - July 20, 2017 The feast of Saint Elijah is celebrated July 20th in the Carmelite calendar. Saint Elijah was a prophet of the Old Testament. His story is recorded in the First and Second Book of Kings. He is also acknowledged as the spiritual father of Carmelites because the early hermits of Mount Carmel lived together near the spring of Elijah (wadi en-Siah)in Mount Carmel to follow his way of life.

Lydia Wickham, Feminist Icon? DARWINCATHOLIC - July 14, 2017 ... [laughter] "Yeah, I teach Jane Austen every year, and I see what she's doing and I appreciate it, but there are so many more stories out there. Think about all the women in Austen novels whose stories don't get told because they're not pretty, because they're not sweet, because they haven't inspire men of greatness, because they made bad decisions. I want to hear Lydia's story." [cheering] It's not the first time that I'd heard Lydia highlighted as the true interesting woman ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2017/07/lydia-wickham-feminist-icon.html

In many cases, the already powerful questions gain an even deeper meaning when one considers this additional information. For example, the story of the Good Samaritan is one of the most familiar parables in the Bible. Wright provides the back story that we may not be aware of. He examines the motivation of the lawyer who asks, "Who is my neighbor?" He explains the terrain of that ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/SPBgN/~3/Iai-0FcJp5E/25-life-changing-questions-from-gospels.html

Respect, Courtesy and Hospitality FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - July 2, 2017 ... story: During the second month of nursing school, a professor gave the students a quiz. One of them was a conscientious student who had breezed through the questions, until she read the last one, "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely, this was some kind of joke. Everyone knew that the cleaning woman was tall, dark-haired, and in her 50s, but they did not know her name. The student handed in her paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2017/07/respect-courtesy-and-hospitality.html

He spoke on How to Become a Modern Day Disciple and here are a few bullet notes. * Do you want to be a fan or a follower? * If you only wish that your kids remain Catholic , that's a shallow goal. * To be disciples, you need to be a dynamic follower and there's a difference between following and studying.

Feast of Saint John the Baptist THE SPIRIT'S SWORD - June 24, 2017 ... little like this: About a thousand years ago the Church was facing a crisis. This is of course nothing new: the Church is always facing some sort of crisis. This one had to do with music. For the first millennium of the Church's history composers had been creating music to go with every part of the Mass, along with the divine office, and general hymns of praise, and so on. The total of music was immense, and every last bit of it was in danger of being lost forever because no one could write it ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheSpiritsSword/~3/_YoWWpmrAEo/saint-john-baptist-day.html

Just Because the Story Seems Strange, Doesn't Mean It Isn't True SERVANT AND STEWARD - June 15, 2017 ... Some modern people happily write off these stories as pure imagination, giving them no credence whatever. While acknowledging they are a bit strange, I've never been one to completely discount them because unusual things happen in the animal world with some frequency. This morning I read with delight the news that a pod of dolphins returned an icon of the Mother of God off the waters of the Black Sea near the Russian city of Sochi: Photo: ruskline.ru A colonel and his wife, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/BWqTvalk_yE/just-because-story-seems-strange-doesnt.html

I've had the honor of making plans for stately Colonial Manors, Cottages, Modern Contemporary, Federal Style, Mediterranean, etc., but the most versatile of all these layouts is the American Ranch Style home. Conceived in the US in the 1920s, and patterned after the Midwestern homes use by ranchers and farmers in the late 19th and early 20th century. Hence the name: "Rancher". The Rancher was also known as the "Tract House" because ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/http/elmiradominicansblogspotcom/~3/SbxmzKh94Jc/the-versatile-ranch-style-house.html

Then Andrea Pitzer, a writer for Slate , delved into the supposed quote and wrote in a story Tuesday that the line was not in "Moby Dick" but was very much like a line from the SparkNotes summary of the book.

To the parents of rising freshmen, the Catholic College promises jobs for its alumni, not their "uprightness of moral conscience" ( CCC #1780). Tuition, room and board, and other fees (excluding books, clothes, trips home, etc.) at Notre Dame now cost about $65,000 per year. Four years will cost more than a quarter-million dollars, so parents are (understandably) interested in the return on their investment.

What the Economist Could Learn From Solomon CRISIS MAGAZINE - June 8, 2017 The Economist began its editorial promoting paid surrogacy by quoting the Bible: the story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar is an "exploitative version of surrogacy that still shapes attitudes and laws today." Why the lessons of that story do not remain relevant for today (and today's "attitudes and laws") is never really explained. Neither the story of Hagar nor of Mary Beth Whitehead turned out happily ever after. I would, however, invoke ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/AftuDRDlYMw/economist-learn-solomon
