Why I (Nearly) Left the Church Recently JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - June 16, 2017 ... help the situation but I do not blame them for nearly causing the apathy. This past Lent was rough for me. I got sick (a bad cold after being subjected to freezing -- for L.A. standards -- temperatures in light layers). I accidentally had dairy when I went to Mexico and I spent the next month being physically debilitated because of it. I dealt with the last of the problems I had due to the anemia and everything else. I was racially profiled for the first time in my life. My spiritual life took ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2017/06/why-i-nearly-left-church-recently.html

Hoosiers, Start Your Engines – In Indy, a Green Flag... And the Checkered One WHISPERS IN THE LOGGIA - June 12, 2017 O f course, this week brings the Midsummer Classic – the June Meeting of the US bishops, the bench's first plenary of both a Donald Trump White House and a Dan DiNardo Presidency . Yet while the former's ascent provides no shortage of things to be discussed, such is the latter's disposition that no session will run a second longer than it absolutely has to. But, no, the reason for that is not – repeat: is not – politics. While a handful of committee ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2017/06/hoosiers-start-your-engines-in-indy.html

Exodus 90 at Day 90 BOOK REVIEWS AND MORE - May 31, 2017 Exodus 90 - Day 90 Check In A 90 Day program for Christian men with a focus on Prayer, Asceticism, and Brotherhood. From Those Catholic Men. And my fraternity is now 90 days in. Here are some reflections on the program. This was a time to refocus, a time to make gains in the spiritual disciplines and the physical disciplines. For me that means 90 days of: No television. No sugar and sweets. No alcohol. No meat on Tuesdays and Fridays. Daily Rosary. Daily exercise. After 90 ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/BookReviewsAndMore/~3/41BP23ls1wo/exodus-90-at-day-90.html

Finding Happiness DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - May 31, 2017 ... not in Hawaii, AND you'd know that to get to Hawaii you have to get off your butt and take steps to get there. Finding happiness is achieved the same way. You can't say "I'm not happy" and expect happiness to come to you, OR expect someone to bring it to you. You've got to take steps to get there, and, and, and, and, AND --- realize you won't get there soon. It is a journey to get to that place. The book I'm reading right now by Fr. Spitzer concerns suffering, and finding the light that shines ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2017/05/finding-happiness.html

Young Patrick learns about the trinity, about faith, about prayer. My oldest loved this book. We read it together alternating pages. Her favourite parts were the time travel, meeting a real saint. And having a pet frog. My favourite parts were making St. Patrick real, and that my daughter wanted to start the next book as soon as we ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/BookReviewsAndMore/~3/_3BIkus9Xyc/the-secret-of-shamrock-lisa-m-hendey.html

Where Have I Been? COFFEE AND CANTICLES - May 10, 2017 ... Hours. Maybe this blog needs a co-author with new ideas and greater zeal, since clearly I"m running out of steam. (Interested parties may contact me about that--include 3 sample posts.) Anyway, I'm trying to get back in the swing of blogging, so here goes. *** We can usually find (or impose) a pattern in the psalmody of each liturgical hour. This morning, the psalmody of Morning prayer had a great flow. We start out with Psalm 108 , which is at once full of ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/yQUKYcbfHEw/where-have-i-been.html

The Tessie Update: A Jumble of Thoughts, Relief, and Worries BEYOND PEARLS... - April 3, 2017 ... already written on this so bear with me if I repeat myself. So far we now know for certain that Tessie has central apnea. We know that it's on the more severe side of things. But while that's scary, it's the least scary part of all of this. Let me go back. Tessie's doctors have explained that the causes of central apnea are generally a heart problem, a brain malformation, mitochondrial disease, prematurity, or a certain gene called PHOX2B that with a certain mutation leads to something called ...http://www.cammiediane.com/2017/04/the-tessie-update-jumble-of-thoughts.html

After being married so long I think it can be rather easy to be set adrift. Still my faith anchors me and helps me from making of fool of myself – or at least more of a fool of myself. Of those changes one was to commit to Daily Mass. My work hours are flexible so I searched through MassTimes.org looking for an early Mass that I could go to and still get to work ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/splendoroftruth/lNZE/~3/pG513u_-hxY/

Belated Revelations JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - March 21, 2017 After our last young adult meeting last month, my friend Joe, another group member (whom I'll call E), and I were on our way to drop off E at his house. Since it was a bit of a drive, I took the time to share with E how I still don't drive long distances because of the car accident I had on October 13, 2015 . With my lightheadedness, I don't want to risk driving long distances by myself especially at night. I showed him pictures of the accident (which I had on my iPod ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2017/03/belated-revelations_21.html

Baptism & Penance: Deep in the Holy Trinity (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - March 19, 2017 ... baptism, they would have all their sins taken away. Now, what do we do with the sacrament of penance? We examine ourselves, we come forward, one by one, we acknowledge our sins, then? Instead of the priest extending his hand and pouring water over us, what does the priest do? He still extends his hand, and if you will, he "pours" absolution over us! So it's not exactly a "re-baptism" – I don't want to mislead you there. But at the same time, we should recognize the resemblance. In the ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2017/03/baptism-penance-deep-in-holy-trinity.html

To love perfectly is to be indiscriminate as in this brilliant metaphor – the sun rises and rain falls on all. Meeting Sister Yvonne in Zambia When I first met Sister Yvonne in Zambia, I was immediately struck by her warmth, happiness and good humour. I was tired when we first met. We'd had an early start – just before sunrise – ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/03/lent-calendar-prayer-and-reflection-for_11.html

Do this and "your light will rise in the darkness". With Jesus in our lives, his light will shine through in the transformation of our relationships and our world. It is through people responding to Jesus' call that we can bring light and hope to others. Pray Jesus, you call us to follow you. Give us the courage to respond to that call, ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/03/lent-calendar-prayer-and-reflection-for_4.html

Because if we priests don't have the habit of growing and maturing our faith, Francis asked, how can we expect to help grow and develop the faith of others? "The faith of Simon Peter is less than that of many of the small faithful people of God," he said. "There are even the pagans, like the centurion, who have greater faith in time to ask for the healing of a sufferer of their family." "Simon's faith is ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/03/pope-francis-to-romes-priests-imitate.html

"When you start talking about it, that's when people will start coming forward," Fr. Chuck Dahm, O.P., who directs domestic violence outreach for the Archdiocese of Chicago, told CNA about the problem of domestic abuse. The Church's hierarchy "has not been good in getting this into the training of clergy, deacons or priests," he said, even though a "beautiful" pastoral letter ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/parishes-arent-talking-about-epidemic.html
