As someone who attends the Extraordinary Form in a diocesan parish which celebrates both forms of the Roman Rite with dignity and reverence, I do not intend to discuss here the ars celebrandi in which the Ordinary Form is celebrated, but only the content of the texts ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/kAfBn7-bros/how-well-did-of-actually-implement.html
Meet Sr. Jean Ustasiewski! FRANCISCAN LIFE - January 25, 2016 ... that a young girl will come to know the sisters. Such was the case for Sr. Jean Ustasiewski who lived two blocks from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Convent in Baltimore. She was taught by our sisters there and later continued her connection with the sisters at the Catholic High School of Baltimore. Jean was often asked to help out—both in school and in the convent—giving her a glimpse into the sisters' life—a life that spoke to her and seemed to invite her to be part of it. ...http://franciscanlife.blogspot.com/2016/01/meet-sr-jean-ustasiewski.html
Praise the Lord COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - December 27, 2015 ... FOREWORD Some people are happiest at Mass kneeling quietly as they unite their thoughts with the priest and the rest of the congregation in offering the holy Sacrifice to Almighty God. They have every right to make up their own prayers of say the rosary. The ultimate object of the liturgy is the union of our souls with God. But if everybody chose to follow Mass in this way the liturgy would become impossible. It is true that if there is a priest at the altar, the holy ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2015/12/praise-lord.html

A Parish School Turns Failure Into Success CRISIS MAGAZINE - November 18, 2015 ... celebrated on the main floor. I've recently returned from visiting that church. It is a magnificent structure, built like a Roman basilica, with a high coffered ceiling, elegant stained glass windows, and a tripartite sanctuary whose architectural angles all soar upwards. There used to be tall side altars to left and right of the apse, but those, no doubt along with many other works of culture and devotion, were hustled out of the way during the decades that taste, common decency, and filial ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/gcMRzGbLJKs/a-parish-school-turns-failure-into-success

So here it is. The readings were 1 Kings 17: 10-16; Mark 12: 41-44.) There are certain subjects that I really enjoy talking about. Obviously Jesus and his Gospel are number 1; but there are others. I enjoy talking about current events, and social issues, and local news, and sports (at this time of year, most especially ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2015/11/increased-giving-homily.html
