Community Update: Late Summer Edition NUNBLOG - August 19, 2015 I am back in my office (presumably for a stretch of time) after retreat, community "encounter" (updating seminar), a concert practice week and the profession celebration for two of the novices. It has been a packed few weeks, made all the more interesting (and packed) for me by the return of back pain so severe that I offered it up for people who were being tortured. Speaking of which, please pray for my Middle Eastern friend "Samir" (not his real name) who has now broken ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2015/08/community-update-late-summer-edition.html

Editor's Note: This is the conclusion of a two-part post. Part One was entitled, " You Did It to Me: Wisdom and Works of Mercy " posted at These Stone Walls on April 8, 2015.

With the Joy of Our Lord - Nothing Is Impossible! ALWAYS A JOY... - August 8, 2015 It has been a truly intense and anointed two weeks in Divine Retreat Centre - which made my heart experience that our God is truly amazing in how His Good News is proclaimed to people of every age and nation. It had not been an easy two months for me. There were some personal matters that had me preoccupied and made me feel anxious. Serving in Divine, I have witnessed how so many prayers are miraculously answered...even in my own life! Yet, as an ...http://alwaysajoy.blogspot.com/2015/08/with-joy-of-our-lord-nothing-is.html
"I Wanna Live Like There's No Tomorrow" ALWAYS A JOY... - July 13, 2015 ... hospital. To say that I had a really painful skull for the first two months is an understatement - I also had hurt 4 discs on my vertebrae - two discs at the base of my neck and two discs at the base of my spine which were undiagnosed for the first month. Hence, every time I walked, I felt close to fainting after about 2 minutes as the discs were pressing against my nerves. Well, I do remember one thing distinctly! As I was in the A&E section, I realized I had never ever really thought ...http://alwaysajoy.blogspot.com/2015/07/i-wanna-live-like-theres-no-tomorrow.html
"Mondays With Mary" – The Method of Praying the Rosary of the Mater Dolorosa TOM PERNA - June 29, 2015 Over this past weekend, I experienced for my first time a silent retreat focused on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola led by Miles Christi . The retreat came at the perfect time, which has renewed and reformed my prayer life. It also gave me some rather excellent insights and resolutions on how to minister to the parish. As I viewed the retreat schedule on Saturday morning, I noticed that there was a Rosary ...http://tomperna.org/2015/06/29/mondays-with-mary-the-method-of-praying-the-rosary-of-the-mater-dolorosa/
Perfect in Weakness YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - June 20, 2015 ... – even a new name – to have a fresh start and a new beginning. Paul's gifts quickly put him in a leadership position in the new church to which he had been one of its main oppressors. Yet, after rising back to the top, he faced the physical challenges that weakened him, he faced imprisonment that limited his missionary work, and he felt the obstacles of other opponents who replaced Saul as the thorn in the side of the growing church community. However, through it all, Paul realizes ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2015/06/perfect-in-weakness.html
My Turn: A Lesson From Damien, Leper Priest THESE STONE WALLS - May 6, 2015 ... retreat is " The 'One Thing' Is Three " by Father Michael Gaitley, MIC. The timing of it is by design, of course, but not by my design. The retreat has lifted a corner of the shroud that overshadowed my life behind these prison walls beginning on Wednesday of Holy Week. Ryan MacDonald wrote of this in " For One Priest, A Fate Worse than Dying in Prison ," the second of his excellent two-part analysis of a recent court ruling that was a setback in my hope for ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/WXdqueJBs10/
