Then comes the psalm -- also chanted. Then the second reading, from an epistle, concludes with a chant in a notably higher tone. Then the Gospel intro and conclusion in a higher, lighter tone. Get the idea? It's subtle, but it's lovely. And it's something added only when there is chanting. > ; The celebrant continued his good example by not interlacing the prayers of Holy Mass with his own, intrinsically ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2014/03/holy-mass-done-right-in-rome.html
How the Movie 'Gravity' Is an Allegory of the Christ Story CATHOLIC HOTDISH - February 27, 2014 ... might live. Stone is now alone and struggles to survive against insurmountable odds. To me, "Gravity" is a movie masterpiece, both as a space story and as a spiritual metaphor for the Christ story. Kowalski represents Christ. Stone represents us, humanity. The voice from the Houston ground crew represents the voice of God. Contact is lost when disaster strikes, and the astronauts' pleas to "Houston from the blind" represent humanity's pleas to an unseen and unheard God. Kowalski's sacrifice in ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CatholicHotdish/~3/rPtFiDzB7eg/
Cathedral of St. Andrew SNUP'S VIEW FROM THE BACK PEW - February 2, 2014 ... have anything to do with the Presentation of the Lord. No processions. Just another regular Sunday morning. I'm pretty sure most people have no idea that there are candles and processions for today.

I am currently part of the formation team for the Women's Cursillo Weekend that will take place this April 24-27, 2014, so I'm meeting with that group of women (and the two male deacons that are part of our spiritual direction team) on Sunday afternoons from now until April.

The Jesus Gym DOMINE, DA MIHI HANC AQUAM! - January 12, 2014 ... alone. Christianity is a team sport. We play as a team, so we train as a team and the perfect model for teamwork is the Holy Trinity: three divine persons, one God. The more perfectly we imitate this model of Love in action, we closer we get to that Jesus Gym spirit we've been wanting. As noted above, the first step on this new regime is baptism. I did not baptize myself. Nor did any of you. The Church baptized us all with parents, godparents, friends, fans, by-standers, accidental tourists, ...http://hancaquam.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-jesus-gym.html

(this was unexpected...pleasantly unexpected. It's so refreshing when a Catholic church does something well...Catholic) The homily was given by the Deacon. Where has Jesus been all this time?
