St. Thérèse of Lisieux: A Powerful Intercessor CATHOLIC FIRE - October 1, 2014 October 1st is the feast of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, a saint who is very dear to my heart. Over the years, she has been a close friend and a powerful intercessor for me. Let me share a little about one of my favorite saints with you and why she is so special to me. I first learned about St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus when I was 15 years old, a sophomore in a Catholic high school. In English class, her autobiography, Story ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2014/10/st-therese-of-lisieux-powerful.html

Antioch and at the age of 40 went to Constantinople, where he met and befriended St. Gregory of Nazianzus (one of the four great Greek Doctors of the Church.) St. Jerome became the secretary of Pope Damasus, who commissioned the Vulgate from him, which took him 30 years to write. His harsh temperament and his biting criticisms of his intellectual opponents made him many enemies in the Church and in Rome and he was forced to leave the city. Jerome went to Bethlehem, established ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2014/09/st-jerome-father-and-doctor-of-church.html

Alvaro Del Portillo: The "Shadow" Steps Into the Light CRISIS MAGAZINE - September 25, 2014 Alvaro Del Portillo died in his sleep on March 23, 1994. He would have preferred it that way: unnoticed, without fuss, and as ordinary an end to any man's life as is possible. It was a fitting conclusion to one who had spent all his life as an apostle of the sanctity of ordinariness, now giving witness to this even in the manner of his death. This was not the whole story, though, for only hours later the then reigning Supreme Pontiff, Pope John Paul II, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/dgvEhukAyS0/alvaro-del-portillo-shadow-steps-light

The doctors had found that there was nothing to be done. Assuming the worst, Wojtyla began to console Wanda's husband, but was interrupted by Andre. "Oh no," he said, "you do not understand. The doctors are confronted with a mystery. They could not find anything." The tumor had completely disappeared. For Wojtyla, there was only one possible explanation – the intercession of the Capuchin mystic, Padre Pio. What ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-miraculous-bond-between-pope-st.html

The Merciful Mysteries? AFTER ABORTION - September 22, 2014 ... too. So it's ironic that the same day I started drafting this post, our friend Theresa at Lumina posted this about mercy . A great image. Recently, I've started saying a daily Rosary in the car on the way to work, for protection from some rather evil-acting elements in life, doing their level best to cause me havoc just because I did something exactly as I was instructed to do it, nothing more, nothing less. But in saying this Rosary, especially lately, it got me thinking. It ...http://afterabortion.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-merciful-mysteries.html

Praying for the Dead PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - September 12, 2014 ... seldom remember my dreams. About two weeks ago I heard a voice in my dream instructing me to pray for everyone that I have ever known who had died. The voice was kind, but also serious. This was going to be an important undertaking. "Everyone, Lord?" I replied. "Yes, everyone." My first thought was all the Protestants who do not have anyone to pray for them. "By name, Lord?" "Yes, pray for each one by name. Make a list and speak their names ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2014/09/praying-for-dead.html

Pray for Families (Mourning Hearts) SIMPLY INSPIRED PRAYER - September 12, 2014 Greetings Prayer Warriors, Experiencing the passing of a loved one is always painful. Even Jesus cried when his friend Lazarus died. We want so badly to console those in grief, but words always fall short. Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4 The Lord needs us to be his hands, feet, voice, and presence. We are his instruments in the world. While He may pour out grace into a grieving heart to ...http://simplyinspiredprayer.blogspot.com/2014/09/pray-for-families-mourning-hearts.html

A physical miracle attributed to him will be required for him to be declared, "Blessed," and a second miracle to be declared a saint. The Rev. Brian Lawless , vice postulator for the cause of canonization of Venerable Matt Talbot, has made an appeal to Church hierarchy in Ireland to lobby Pope Francis for his canonization. According to the Rev. Mark S. Stelzer, chaplain and associate professor of humanities at Elms College in Chicopee, one factor ...http://venerablematttalbotresourcecenter.blogspot.com/2014/09/venerable-matt-talbots-life-included-in.html

Joan Rivers and the Culture of Death A FOLLOWER OF FRANCIS - September 6, 2014 ... has come to be understood that "Life" touches on aspects not only of physical life (and death), but also to respect for human dignity. Conversely "Death" involves how people are mistreated in life in terms of such things as unjust treatment of workers, sexual exploitation, humiliation, and degradation. There is a range in those activities - from that which hurts to that which kills. And there are different levels of awareness. Some people may do things out of ignorance. Same ...http://paxchristirochester.blogspot.com/2014/09/joan-rivers-and-culture-of-death.html

Dear Student Headed Back to a Public or CINO School... JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - September 3, 2014 ... "oh, I'll do it later" because no, you most likely won't do it later. Don't stop attending Mass. Not only is it a mortal sin to not attend Sunday Mass (or Saturday Vigil Mass) without a legitimate reason, it's also going to make it harder for you to keep your faith in one piece. You can say that you're a "strong and faithful Catholic" all you want but college and independence always come with temptations that will attempt to pull you away from God. I'm going to share something I don't think ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2014/09/dear-student-headed-back-to-public-or.html

The Gift of Purgatory CRISIS MAGAZINE - September 3, 2014 ... Higgins is a heathen And a richer man than I: And they put him in an oven, Just as if he were a pie. Not that it mattered to this crowd what state the remains were in. Hardly a soul approached the altar for a silent vigil or a prayer. John, whose remains sat in the front of the room, and whose pictures were receiving the most attention, had been born in Chicago, in the wake of World War I. A son of Norway, he returned to his homeland to escape the Great Depression and as a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/AmBBinVzvHY/gift-purgatory

Quick Takes: Barely on Time, but Full of Good Stuff! LITTLE CATHOLIC BUBBLE - September 1, 2014 ... peri-menopause symptoms. Why ironic? Because, as longtime readers know, my blogging came about because of the support of the IF (infertile) Catholic bloggers, who took me (a crazy fertile) under their collective wing . These ladies were often helped by the amazing medical treatment pioneered by Dr. Hilgers at the Pope Paul IV Institute in Omaha , who has since trained many other doctors and health care workers. The philosophy of NaPro is to ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/LittleCatholicBubble/~3/L3oEmVHvb3s/quick-takes-barely-on-time-but-full-of.html

Homily for August 31 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - August 31, 2014 ... truth will often discomfort us. Haven't all of us, at one time or another, felt that we've been duped? And of course, sometimes, we have been duped! There are people in our lives who have deliberately misled us, deceived us and defrauded us. Ugly, nasty business – all of it. But there are also times when we've felt duped, especially in relationships with others: times when the unfolding truth of our experience has brought us to situations we never ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2014/08/homily-for-august-31.html

In the 6 th century she was moved to a little church named for St. Aurea, an early martyr of the city, and there she remained until 1430 when her remains were translated by Pope Martin V to the Roman Basilica of St. Augustine built in 1420 by the famous Guillaume Card.

This was a great help to the Carmelites, who were finding life in Palestine very difficult due to the hostility of the Moslems. St. Louis of France had a busy schedule and a multitude of duties. Through the Eucharist, the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and devotion to Our Lady, he attained a life of union with God. Power and riches had no hold on his heart. Let us seek his intercession in this often disorienting time we live ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2009/08/god-france-and-marguerite.html

Funeral for a Priest IMPRISONED IN MY BONES - August 4, 2014 ... holy priest, Fr. Joseph Baran . According to his long-time friend, Fr. Norbert Kieferle from Indiana, "Fr. Baran was the oldest Polish priest in the Badger State. He was 92 years old when he died from a sudden heart attack, although he didn't have heart disease, and his mind remained sharp until the end." The funeral Mass was sparsely attended which made me sad. I've always imagined that people would be spilling out of the church at the funerals of priests as ...http://annebender.blogspot.com/2014/08/funeral-for-priest.html
