Venerable Matthew Talbot Conversion Story ┬áVENERABLE MATT TALBOT RESOURCE CENTER - December 18, 2014 ... prepare his body for his funeral. Matt may have chosen to succumb to instant gratification and sensual pleasures early in his life, but he certainly became a man of humble and authentic austerity in the end of his life. There are two reasons Matt Talbot's story strikes me so deeply: firstly, I belong to a family riddled with alcoholism and addiction. I have witnessed family members and close friends become slaves to this disease, and a few of them have tragically died as a direct result of the ...http://venerablematttalbotresourcecenter.blogspot.com/2014/12/venerable-matthew-talbot-conversion.html

Full Text: Cardinal Collins' Address, All Party Interfaith National Breakfast, Ottawa ARCHDIOCESE OF TORONTO BLOG - December 3, 2014 ... life that we really control, and that what we do control is usually not worth controlling. Humility tames the ego, and so gives us the resilience to face both triumph and disaster with serenity. In our pride we are brittle, and self-referential. Humility makes each of us a more magnanimous person; when we are all wrapped up in ourselves, we make a very small package, and one that falls apart in times of crisis. Different religious traditions have various ways of helping people to become ...http://archdioceseoftoronto.blogspot.com/2014/12/full-text-cardinal-collins-address-all.html

The Proper Republican Response to Obama's Executive Action on Immigration EST QUOD EST - November 21, 2014 ... means, why, absolutely. We'll take another look at taking up immigration legislation then. Until then, though, for the remainder of Obama's term, immigration is now and will continue to be "Obama's broken immigration system". Illegal immigrants who wanted more won't get it: sorry, see Obama. Communities whose resources may be more heavily consumed more openly now: sorry, see Obama. Frankly, it's hard to see how Obama's actions of yesterday will change the actual status quo ...http://contrapauli.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-proper-republican-response-to.html

Welcome Him As You Would Me YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - November 13, 2014 Memorial of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, Virgin Perhaps this is why he was away from you for a while, that you might have him back forever, no longer as a slave but more than a slave, a brother, beloved especially to me, but even more so to you, as a man and in the Lord. So if you regard me as a partner, welcome him as you would me. Philemon 15-17 Asked by the Pharisees when the Kingdom of God would come, Jesus said in reply, "The coming of the Kingdom of God cannot ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2014/11/welcome-him-as-you-would-me.html

The Immigrant Saint: Frances Xavier Cabrini CRISIS MAGAZINE - November 13, 2014 ... missionaries were read and discussed. Frances was educated by the local sisters, the Daughters of the Sacred Heart. She felt the call of God early and sought entry to the Daughters' convent, but was refused. Not easily daunted, she would find another way. As she searched for her path to consecrated life she began working as a teacher in a nearby school. In 1870 both her parents died and she tried another congregation—again no luck. Ironically, her own evident quality was her undoing; the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/AabI9QDRxpc/immigrant-saint-frances-xavier-cabrini

The icon was "written" by our brother, Dom Alex Echeandia, in preparation for his priestly ordination which will take place on Thursday, the feast of St Luke, patron saint of iconographers. At the centre, Christ is manifested, glorified on ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2014/10/october-12th-our-lady-of-aparacida-in.html

On the Feast of Sts Sergius and Bacchus, Thoughts on Marriage Equality in the U.S. And the Vatican's Synod on the Family THE WILD REED - October 7, 2014 . "Marriage of Saint Sergius and Saint Bacchus" (2013) by Tony de Carlo . One of the many insights that has stayed with me from my 2004 interview of Catholic theologian and author Mary Bednarowski was the following response by Mary to my question about authority within the Catholic tradition. I understand "authority" as residing in both the individual and the community. For quite some time I've thought about "authority" as that in which I can place my ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2014/10/on-feast-of-sts-sergius-and-bacchus.html

Sunday Word, 28 Sep 14 TO FIND FRUIT - September 28, 2014 ... prophet Ezekiel preached a revolutionary message. It marked an evolutionary change in a belief the people Israel had long held. Through Prophet Ezekiel God challenged it: the word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, what is the meaning of this proverb that you recite in the land of Israel: "Fathers have eaten green grapes, thus their children's teeth are on edge?" 1 With that proverb people claimed they were punished for sins of their ancestors' rather than theirs. With God's ...http://findfruit.blogspot.com/2014/09/sunday-word-28-sep-14.html

St. Nicholas and St. Roch Were on a Roll Today! HOMESCHOOLING WITH JOY - September 15, 2014 ... my discounts and such when I remembered....I might be a mother, but currently there is not a bride-to-be....so I reluctantly walked on by. By then it was time to go pick up Mr 14 yo from class and bring him over to Goodwill for some shopping of his own. No JCP for him! I refuse to buy him full price clothing when he's entering the "size of the month club". So we browsed the racks and he picked out a handful of things to try on. "Do you want me to stay here and look at anything you try on?" I ...http://hsjoy.blogspot.com/2014/09/st-nicholas-and-st-roch-were-on-roll.html

When Catholic Leaders Abandon the Faithful CRISIS MAGAZINE - September 8, 2014 ... begins with a Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral, the seat of the archbishop of New York and the mother church of an archdiocese comprising 368 parishes and 2.6 million Catholics. This year, in a vexing display of political naiveté, the parade will actually be led by New York archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan, recent former president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Suffice to say it's a very Catholic parade. But for decades, New York's Catholic leaders—including ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/dR7Z1SsgOs0/catholic-leaders-abandon-faithful

Prefaces FR HUNWICKE'S MUTUAL ENRICHMENT - August 29, 2014 I reprint this piece from June (with its thread) because of its relevance to the Feast today of the Decollation of my Patron S John Baptist. I am moved by the great fear that many traddies have of the slightest change to the Missal of 1962. Truly, people have been wounded. But: (1) S John Baptist, whom we celebrate today, is at least as great a Saint as S Joseph. One could even argue that, inhttp://liturgicalnotes.blogspot.com/2014/08/prefaces.html
