St. Stanislaus CATHOLIC FIRE - April 11, 2014 The saint of the day for April 11, is St. Stanislaus, the Bishop of Cracow, Poland.

4 April: St. Isidore of Seville, Bishop and Doctor (to Which a Prayer Is Added) FR. Z'S BLOG - April 4, 2014 ... saint of the internet. (NB: He is NOT, however, offically named such. Keep that in mind.) I was asked to write a prayer people could recite before using the internet. It seemed to me a good idea. I wrote the prayer in Latin and submitted it, with a translation into English, to a bishop who gave it his approval. This prayer is all over the same internet now (both with and without attribution!). The experience of stumbling upon the prayer at various pages and sites, prompted me ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/jj2SkcbiQz0/

Saint of the Day: Isidore of Seville DA MIHI ANIMAS - April 4, 2014 The following comes from the CNA: On April 4 the Catholic Church honors Saint Isidore of Seville, a bishop and scholar who helped the Church preserve its own traditions, and the heritage of western civilization, in the early middle ages. In 653, less than two decades after his death, a council of bishops in Spain acclaimed St. Isidore as "an illustrious teacher of our time and the glory of the Catholic Church."

The Pilgrim's Journey TRUE RESTORATION - April 1, 2014 ... reflection on St. Ignatius' autobiography. We present it as part of the ongoing project to get to know our patron saint better. The entire construction of The Autobiography of St. Ignatius Loyola is premised on the actions of a reluctant saint. Angry at himself for his own sins, unbelieving that God could forgive him, Ignatius manages to create a narrative that is at once narrative and reflective, taking us clearly into the heart of what would ...http://truerestoration.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-pilgrims-journey.html

Saint of the Day: Enda of Aran DA MIHI ANIMAS - March 21, 2014 The following comes from the CNA: On March 21, four days after the feast day of Ireland's patron Saint Patrick, the Catholic Church honors Saint Enda of Aran, a warrior-turned-monk considered to be one of the founders of Irish monasticism.

He had difficulty walking because of an abscess on the knee (made worse by an attempted cure), but despite this he was high-spirited, and physically strong. When Cuthbert was 15, he had a vision of angels conducting the soul of St. Aidan to heaven. The next morning, he found that St. Aidan - founder of the Priory of Lindisfarne and a man of great holiness - had died at the very moment of his vision.

St. Joseph's Fiat You Can Say "Yes" Too! A FRIAR'S LIFE - March 19, 2014 We hear in Saint Matthew's Gospel, "Joseph her husband...was a righteous man ...When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him ." We don't hear too much about Joseph in the Gospels. We know he is righteous; often called just. We know that he was obedient, doing what the Lord commanded him through the angel. We have these vignettes in the life of St. Joseph that have too often left us with an impression of this great saint that is ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2014/03/st-josephs-fiat-you-can-say-yes-too.html

Friday Daybook PRAYING FOR GRACE - March 14, 2014 ... (7 a.m.) is not morning prayer time for an order, so I twitched to midmorning prayer, but I'm still not sure I'm doing it right. I know if I do it long enough, I'll get used to it, but I don't feel I'm really getting anything out of it right now. I used the Divine Office app, and use the audio to participate as if I were praying in community, but it feels empty. Fake it till you make it? I am hopeful that Leila Lawler's new book will help when it arrives. The thing that prompted me to want to ...http://prayingforgrace.blogspot.com/2014/03/friday-daybook.html

St. John of God ATONEMENTONLINE - March 7, 2014 ... crying, he was the target of insults, jokes, and even stones and mud from the townspeople and their children. Some friends took him to a hospital for the insane. Eventually, the priest who had preached the sermon that had affected John so much, came to see him, and told him that he had gone on like this enough, so John was moved to a better part of the hospital, and where he was free to move about. Although still a patient, he began to help the other sick people around him. In fact, this ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2014/03/st-john-of-god.html

Science, Faith, and Albertus Magnus A CATHOLIC CITIZEN IN AMERICA - February 23, 2014 ... against the rules today. (Catechism, 2116 ) In the 13th century, being interested in astrology didn't make someone an "astrologer" in today's sense. Researchers of the late Middle Ages thought that Earth was a small part of the universe: and that what happened 'out there' affected what happened here. They were right about that, but further study showed that the real 'cosmic' influences don't lend themselves to fortunetelling. Astrology isn't astronomy , even though both involve stars and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/ACatholicCitizenInAmerica/~3/jTVFqJoPlyI/science-faith-and-albertus-magnus.html

The next stop on our intercontinental youth pilgrimage will be in Krakow in 2016. As a way of accompanying our journey together, for the next three years I would like to reflect with you on the Beatitudes found in the Gospel of Saint Matthew (5:1-12). This year we will begin by reflecting on the first Beatitude: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" ( Mt 5:3). For 2015 I suggest: "Blessed ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2014/02/popes-message-for-wyd-2014-poor-in.html

In the fury of his zeal he applied for a commission to take up all Jews at Damascus who confessed Jesus Christ, and bring them bound to Jerusalem, that they might serve as examples for the others.

While on his way to Damascus, he and his party were surrounded by a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, and suddenly struck to the ground.

Peter Faber: The New Patron Saint of Business? (Contribution) CLERICAL WHISPERS - January 14, 2014 I want to propose a new patron saint for business people: Peter Faber. On Dec. 17, Pope Francis signed the bull of canonization recognizing Faber as a saint, and the relatively low-key elevation -- no ornate Mass in St. Peter's Square for poor Faber -- is in keeping with his relative obscurity in the Jesuit pantheon. Faber was among the handful who co-founded the Jesuit order in the mid-1500s, but he never quite attained the renown of ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2014/01/peter-faber-new-patron-saint-of.html
