Friday Potpourri: Hurry Up and Wait ADAM'S ALE - July 29, 2016 ... horrible parking lot, someone says, "We have just a few announcements." I see the air go out of people's lungs and shoulders slump. If there are a number of them, then you can SEE attention starting to drift off toward the ceiling. Announcements should be like javelin tosses. You throw one, and it is quick and a doozy. After that, people shut down and anything said will be as well heard as a long lecture of the benefits of flossing sitting outside on a hot afternoon having ...http://clevelandpriest.blogspot.com/2016/07/friday-potpourri-hurry-up-and-wait.html
"The Sacrifice of Praise and the Ecstatic Orientation of Man" — Lecture at Silverstream Priory NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - July 28, 2016 This week my family and I have been visiting Silverstream Priory in Ireland for a time of rest and prayer. At the invitation of the prior, Dom Mark Kirby, I gave a conference to monks, clergy, and seminarians this afternoon, the full text of which is available at Rorate ; the audio has also been posted by the monks. A few excerpts: We are steeped in a world of pragmatism, utilitarianism, and activism, where we place such a high premium on doing and making, where we ask ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/tkVVZGzDDkk/the-sacrifice-of-praise-and-ecstatic.html
How to Change How You Look & Feel About Yourself FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - July 24, 2016 ... uttering them that day alone. That familiarity makes us lose sight of how incredibly powerful this prayer is– and especially how incredibly radical this prayer was that day Jesus first uttered it. Up until the moment when Jesus first utters this prayer - and commanding us that this is how we are to pray - humanity never referred to God (or'gods') as Father. Even our Jewish ancestors, while they acknowledged God as the "Father of their ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2016/07/how-to-change-how-you-look-feel-about.html
Freedom!!... Sort Of. JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - June 15, 2016 ... before it was due last night. Basically, if I could study instead of doing something else, I chose to study. That means I had to decline on a couple of outings, I didn't do much reading for fun, and I was basically glued to the kitchen chair (I study best at the kitchen table). Now I understand why people would tell me that I would no longer have a life once I started grad school. Still, I am done for the next two weeks... sort of. While I do have a two week break between the ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2016/06/freedom-sort-of.html
There Aren't "Two Popes" in Any Way, Shape, or Form INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - June 8, 2016 ... strike. It's a Toyota or a Ford. You're baptized or you aren't. The papacy would seem to be one of these you-are-or-you-aren't realities. According to the law of the Church, a man becomes pope the moment he accepts election (assuming he's a bishop; if not, he becomes pope after he's immediately ordained to the episcopate). A man ceases to be pope when he dies or when he abdicates the office by a clear and free manifestation of his will to do so. So there are never "two popes." Whatever else a ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2016/06/there-arent-two-popes-in-any-way-shape-or-form.html
Lack of Concentration During Prayer JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - May 28, 2016 ... out that the lack of concentration (even when I really did try and push the distractions to one side), I used to ask myself:"At what point do I let whatever outside stressors take over? What can I do to snap myself back to the present time and focus on God instead of the other things that don't actually matter?" I figured out what was keeping me back: I'd unintentionally fallen back into the social media spiral... and a game spiral on Facebook. Ay. This past week, I started over again. I went ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2016/05/lack-of-concentration-during-prayer.html
Non-Orthodox Baptisms and the Ecclesiology That Follows BYZANTINE, TEXAS - May 9, 2016 ... must be baptized." Even if you disagree with the premise that recognition of heterodox baptisms is an end-run aimed at Vatican II ecclesiology, there is much to recommend the below paper. It's long (as it should be considering the topic), but worth your time. ( Pravoslavie.ru ) - With the push for a pan-Orthodox acceptance of the Pre-Synodical text, "Relations of the Orthodox Church with the Rest of the Christian World," a century long process of distortion of Orthodox ecclesiology is coming ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2016/05/non-orthodox-baptisms-and-ecclesiology.html
