How many difficulties are present in the life of every individual, among our people, in our communities; yet as great as these may seem, God never allows us to be overwhelmed by them. In the face of those moments of discouragement we experience in life, in our efforts to evangelize or to embody our faith as parents within the family, I would like to say forcefully: Always know in your heart that God is by your side; he never ...http://anabragahenebrysjournal.blogspot.com/2014/11/history-of-brazilian-our-lady-in-english.html

So many emotions as I recalled the joys I have experienced as a Roman Catholic as well as the pains that many, including me, have felt. But there was one sense that was overwhelming to me as Pope Francis spoke: hope. After the exhilaration of hearing the pope, we made our way to Piazza Navona for lunch.

Happy All Saints Day! (Nope, I'm Not Early…ask Father Dennis Brown, OMV) THE LADY IN THE PEW - October 30, 2014 ... option at all. I believe that Father Dennis would take it as a personal affront if Saint-Whoever-Heard-of-This-Person wasn't honored at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Just a theory of mine, but I think this has to do, somehow, with his own background. While he's a priest now, and an excellent one, he wasn't always—shall we say, the epitome of holiness? In fact (and I wish I could find a 1960s era photo I once saw of him that would easily make him the poster child for ...http://pewlady.blogspot.com/2014/10/happy-all-saints-day-nope-im-not.html

Restoring Hope: The Inspiration Behind St. Jude's SOUTHERN FRIED CATHOLICISM BLOG - October 28, 2014 ... St. Jude in a Detroit church, he asked for the saint to give him a sign to let him know whether or not he was on the right path with his career. He placed $7 in the church's offering box and thought, "I need at least 10 times this." The very next day, seemingly out of the blue, Kairouz was offered a gig in a toothbrush commercial. The pay was $75. He saw this event as a sign from God that he was, indeed, on the right path. He knew that St. Jude interceded for him and he made a ...http://southernfriedcatholicism.blogspot.com/2014/10/restoring-hope-inspiration-behind-st.html

Luke then switches back to the third person which seems to indicate he was not thrown into prison with Paul and that when Paul left Philippi Luke stayed behind to encourage the Church there. Seven years passed before Paul returned to the area on his third missionary journey. In Acts 20:5, the switch to "we" tells us that Luke has left Philippi to rejoin Paul in Troas in 58 where they first met up. They ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/10/saint-of-day-luke.html

"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

As we strolled down the store she ended up in the flower shop, attracted by the beauty and the color... And begged me to buy a dozen roses.

And the price of the roses was astonishingly low, I don't ...http://anabragahenebrysjournal.blogspot.com/2014/10/two-stories-on-feast-of-st-therese-of.html

St. Jerome ARE WE THERE YET? - September 30, 2014 ... known to have a tad bit of a temper myself... (Ask anyone.) So, yeah. I feel a comfortable companionship with a saint with the same problem. Our William, also a little man of extremes, has adopted St. Jerome as his patron in crankiness, too. But we can't use our shared weaknesses as an excuse. The remarkable fact of Jerome's bad temper is that he managed to overcome it. Years of prayer, study, and solitude -- and the sheer will to be mild-mannered for love of ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2014/09/st-jerome.html
