All the Cathedrals (1): Oxford... CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - August 15, 2017 ... across the River Rhine from Bingen. The guided tour of the Abbey Church indicates clearly how the decoration of the Church is designed to celebrate the living presence of God with his people through the course of history. The experience of sitting in the nave at Eibingen, somewhat gobsmacked by the decoration of the Church came strongly to mind as I sat in Keble College chapel. Both churches are well worth a ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2017/08/all-cathedrals-1-oxford.html

How Could Father Leave the Priesthood? FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - August 13, 2017 ... like it's a surprise on ordination day to find out that priests make promises that include obedience and chastity. But - life's rarely that cut and dry... And this isn't to judge or interpret the actions of other priests who've left. We can never know what's in another person's heart or what it is they are going through. So I'm trying to be careful not to make assumptions and lump everyone together because no two cases are the same. One great spiritual director, the late Fr. Benedict ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2017/08/how-could-father-leave-priesthood.html

Transfiguration VIEW FROM THE AMBO - August 10, 2017 ... it to prepare the three apostles for the cross. No matter, because what we celebrate is not when the Transfiguration happened, but THAT it happened. We perhaps know the story well enough. Jesus lead Peter, James, and John up the mountain, there to be transformed or better allowed to reveal His inner majesty. They struggle for understanding, seeing Moses (the law-giver) and Elijah (the Prophet). Peter offers to build booths or tents, signifying his desire to stay there. They hear a voice that ...http://frtodd.blogspot.com/2017/08/transfiguration.html

On the 'Real', Revisited. THE SPIRIT'S SWORD - August 8, 2017 ... concealing a "real" core of sexual appetite or economic association. Wars and poverty are "really" horrible; peace and plenty are mere physical facts about which men happen to have certain sentiments. the creatures are always accusing one another of wanting "to eat the cake and have it"; but thanks to our labours they are more often in the predicament of paying for the cake and not eating it. Where did this come from? I am uncertain. The art following the First World War exhibits this ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheSpiritsSword/~3/WmxJQ1aQvtY/on-real-revisited.html

Only the Eyes of Faith Enable Us to See Goodness in Pain and Suffering. REFLECTIONS AND RUMINATIONS - August 6, 2017 ... cherished and beloved by the Father. On the Cross, he held on to the truth in deep faith. So what he gave to Mary, Martha and Lazarus was the exact same thing that would be given to him on Calvary later on. On hindsight, we know that it was because Jesus went through the Passion with a resolution that was founded on love; his cruel death was vindicated by the resurrection that accorded him the glory of the faith that he clung on to. Knowing this may not sufficiently explain ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2017/08/only-eyes-of-faith-enable-us-to-see.html

The Transfiguration MOUNT CARMEL - August 5, 2017 ... the words "This is my beloved Son. Listen to him." The disciples certainly needed to hear these words, didn't they? In a few weeks time, they would all be scattered like sheep without a shepherd. These words are as good today as they were then. The world is filled with so many confusing voices. Let us try our best to heed God's advice. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus. The faith of Abraham is a model of discipleship. To believe in God means to believe that he first exists. For Abraham to leave ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MountCarmel/~3/b4Lo_PTqqWo/2ndsunday-of-lent-transfiguration.html

We Will Heed and Do YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - July 29, 2017 ... Mary sat at home but Martha went to meet him. She then invites her sister to join them – moving from hospitality to evangelization – bringing companions closer to Christ. It was only after the death of her brother that Martha escaped her preoccupation with other takes and exhibits her faith. This is not unlike the atonement experienced by Mr. Glenn Holland in his movie epic. Holland (played masterfully by Richard Dreyfuss) is a frustrated composer who initially ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2017/07/we-will-heed-and-do.html

Today as we honor Saints Anne and Joachim, the parents of Mary and thus the grandparents of Jesus, we may speculate on their contribution to Jesus' faith commitment. It may be presumed that Anne and Joachim raised Mary as a devout Jew. They taught her how to wait upon the Lord and instructed her not to follow the winds of the time. They reminded Mary of how God loves His people and will ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2017/07/wednesday-july-26-2017.html

They are Satan's attempts to place doubts in our minds, to confuse us and lead us into choices that only give rise to more divisions, distress, and confusion, in other words, to get us to sow bad seed. God knows this. God has known from all eternity that He would enter the world by sending his Son to confront directly, to take on ...http://bob.yerhot.org/2017/07/deacon-bobs-homily-for-15th-sunday-of-ordinary-time-cycle-a/

Even a mere shadow of a servant throws her into a panic and nervous breakdown. She decided to enter the cloister with the hope of finding the peace and security of the cloister walls and to hopefully experience a respite from all her fears. The Mother Prioress strongly reminded Blanche that the cloister was not a refuge to protect them.

American Metropolitans, comprising the hierarchs from the Metropolises of Boston, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Atlanta, Detroit, Denver and San Francisco and presided over by Archbishop Demetrios of America, met in New York City on July 6 to deliberate and create what the Church calls a "triprosopon," or list of three names. These three names are then submitted to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople for review by thy Synod and ultimate election of the new Metropolitan.

Itala Mela Beatified COMMUNIO - June 17, 2017 ... Catherine of Siena, one of the patron saints of Italy. In previous posts on Mela, I noted she was an Italian laywoman who eventually found her vocation not as a Benedictine nun but as a Benedictine Oblate. Itala Mela was a well-known mystic of the Church, her popularity certainly grew following her death. She was the author of several theological writings that focused on the Blessed Trinity. In his June 11th, Trinity Sunday Angelus Address, Pope Francis said that Blessed Itala ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2017/06/itala-mela-beatified/

Soul Meets Body THE HEART OF THINGS BLOG - June 12, 2017 If they knew how big they'd become on the music scene, lead singer Ben Gibbard of the band "Death Cab for Cutie" once confessed, they would've thought twice about picking that obscure name. In these days of an even deeper obscurity over what gender we identify as, I'd like to reflect on one of my favorite DCFC's songs "Soul Meets Body." From their album, Codes and Keys, released in May 2011, "Soul Meets Body" soars as an achingly beautiful song with echoes of the original ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheHeartOfThings/~3/TXw4oYLPgqI/soul-meets-body.html

What Happens When More-Disturbed-Than-Average Teenage Boys Grow Up and Put Their Masturbatory Fantasies on Television? THECHURCHMILITANT - June 11, 2017 ... although we did get gems like Jason Eisener's Hobo With a Shotgun out of it. Now, a decade later, Syfy is giving it another go with "Blood Drive", set to premiere on June 14th. When I heard it was a "grindhouse-inspired series," I rolled my eyes, scoffed and put it in my rearview mirror. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong because these promo trailers shred! Syfy literally dumped more than a handful of short tv spots that are going to whet horror fan's appetites. They have no shame and are ...http://thechurchmilitant.blogspot.com/2017/06/what-happens-when-more-disturbed-than.html

Jun 11 - Holy Trinity Sunday FATHER BILL'S BLOG - June 11, 2017 ... and personal! The infinity of his majesty, power and glory are found and proved in the minuteness, the tininess and the complete unsuspectability of his concreteness, his finiteness among us as demonstrated in creation, and in the sending of his own Son to be a part of our world, for our salvation! This is all very, very amazing – and yes, even awesome to the maximum. And so we rejoice in the fact today that Jesus, the Son, has revealed his Father, as our Father! We rejoice that by his ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2017/06/jun-11-holy-trinity-sunday.html

What Are You Working For? DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - June 10, 2017 I've noted before that my life seems to move through phases. I've seen that some phases have very definable ends, like my forced retirement or mom's death. And, if we are faithful Christians and we see a phase of our life approaching to an end --- or if we perceive one needs to, or an end is about to happen --- we should turn at that point to God in prayer: "What now, Lord? What's next for me? Show me Your will.". And it's been my experience that those ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2017/06/what-are-you-working-for.html

While she believes death is a natural part of life, she nevertheless finds herself scared of the end. She feels great pain at having to share the bad news with her children, and suffers through the exhaustion of chemo, and has to face the strain on her marriage and the loss of personal dignity. Yet through it all she trusts in God and acknowledges that the painful process has brought her closer to God because there are many ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/SPBgN/~3/3gMYfQkee00/book-review-on-my-way-home.html
