A Politician's Prayer DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - August 23, 2016 I am on a retreat this week. I've taken time off to focus on God, to quiet all the other affairs of my life so I can hear Him speak to me --- if He so wills. My intent was to spend these days praying for our country, and listening if God wished me to do more. Whether walking the quiet paths through the woods, sitting in the chapel, or alone at night in my bed, I am focusing my thoughts on praying for our country. Since I am an organizer of my time, one of my resolutions is ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2016/08/a-politicians-prayer.html
Greetings Before I Go Into the Silence NUNBLOG - August 6, 2016 I've been at our retreat house (between historic Lexington and Concord) for almost a week now, not for retreat but for our annual updating session. Retreat begins tonight and with it eight days of silence (including Internet silence--which may be why our Wi-Fi is not working?). Feel free to send me your prayer intentions before 7:30 Eastern time. (Use the comment feature, but indicate whether you want them posted everyone else to see and ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2016/08/greetings-before-i-go-into-silence.html
Back Blogging - Sharing Retreat REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 1, 2016 Taken on the beach at the retreat house, Villa Maria del Mar Thanks for all the prayers for my retreat; it was really a heavenly week. I was in the corner room on the east side of the third floor, the best room in the entire house! That was a gift and then the weather was almost perfect. We did have a few foggy mornings, but then the sun appeared. I actually spent a great deal of time in my room. This contemplative retreat ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2016/08/back-blogging-sharing-retreat.html
A Second Look at the Our Father (Sunday 17.C) HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - July 24, 2016 I have great little app on my phone called The Three Minute Retreat . Every day it offers a simple meditation, Jesuit-style, putting me in the mood for prayer with beautiful photos and, if I feel like it, some music in the background. Sometimes I make my three minute retreat sitting up in bed; other times I go to their website and pray at my computer. And other times—too many other times—I tell myself I don't have three minutes! That's sad, ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2016/07/a-second-look-at-our-father-sunday-17c_24.html

Speak Lord. Your Servant Is Listening. HAPPY CATHOLIC* - June 22, 2016 ton Girls at Prayer William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1904 via French Painters Before the Lord the whole universe is as a grain from a balance or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth. But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things; and you overlook people's sins that they may repent. For you love all things that are and loathe nothing that you have made; for what you hated, you would not have fashioned. And how could a thing remain, unless you willed it; or be ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2016/06/speak-lord-your-servant-is-listening_22.html
On Orlando Massacre, the Pope's "Deepest Horror" WHISPERS IN THE LOGGIA - June 12, 2016 Reacting to the deadliest mass shooting in US history – at least 50 dead and another 53 injured in an early-morning attack on an LGBT nightclub in Orlando – the Vatican spokesman Fr Federico Lombardi SJ issued a rare nighttime statement from the Pope: The terrible massacre that has taken place in Orlando, with its dreadfully high number of innocent victims, has caused in Pope Francis, and in all of us, the deepest feelings of horror and condemnation, of pain ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2016/06/on-orlando-popes-deepest-horror.html
