A man weeping - he's got my hankie and I am so glad I had a large clean one to give away. Two girls with sudden glad news about a sick relative and thrilled to be invited in to give thanks. People who wanted to talk a bit, and people who just wanted to drift away afterwards on their own. People who said they could only come in for a brief moment - and stayed for a long time. And then the people who said "No thanks - the Church hates ...http://joannabogle.blogspot.com/2015/08/over-500.html
Shooting Ducks in a Barrel COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - August 2, 2015 ... in a comment on the Pill's rather prejudicial reporting of Edmund Adamus' reflection on the Westminster responses to the pre-Synod questionnaire. My comments interpolated in Bold. "Like most other Catholics I know, I respect the Church's teaching on marriage and parenthood. (What do you imagine she means [or even thinks she means] by 'respect' in that sentence, given what follows?) I also know from experience that marriage and family life can induce agonies of guilt over our ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2015/08/shooting-ducks-in-barrel.html
Liturgy and the Stance of Weakness MONASTERY OF THE HOLY CROSS - July 1, 2015 ... correct contexts? An example I like to use is the "universal call to holiness." This is a good, solid teaching rooted in the one baptism that all Christians share. It became obscured with the rise of a type of clericalism in the Middle Ages, along with the rise of the religious orders. Before the Second Vatican Council, it could appear that the Church had two levels of holiness, the religious and ordained ministries, and then the laity. The Council Fathers stated clearly that ...http://chicagomonk.org/about-us/the-priors-blog/liturgy-and-the-stance-of-weakness/

Like Saint (Pope) John Paul II, or Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI before him, Pope Francis recognizes the Satanic root of our division. Here is part of what Pope Francis said:* The devil "knows that Christians are disciples of Christ, that they are one, that they are brothers! He doesn't care if they are Evangelicals or Orthodox, Lutherans, Catholics or Apostolic … he doesn't care! They are ...http://thecontemplativecatholicconvert.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-debt-i-owe.html
The Month of Mary Part 2 – 1917 DA MIHI ANIMAS - May 13, 2015 ... today's evils and not relentlessly pursue the truth of their causes. When we have the courage to pursue the truth about "what is wrong with the world" (to borrow a phrase of G.K. Chesterton), we discover that most things in the present world are not what they seem. And instead of focusing on all the "whats" going on in the world, we should be focusing on the "why;" because, as Venerable Fulton Sheen said during World War II, the real reason behind today's wars and evils is not dialectical, but ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-month-of-mary-part-2-1917.html
