An Advent Meditation on Hope CRISIS MAGAZINE - December 15, 2014 "Legislation is helpless against the wild prayer of longing." ∼ L. H. Auden "I did not know my longing until I encountered You." ∼ CL Hymn The desire for God is a drive as deep as it is indestructible. There can be no other longing as profound or pervasive. And on the strength of its universality, its wonderful and all-encompassing ubiquity, we cannot understand ourselves as other than religious beings. Contingent creatures, that is, whose existence stands ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/UKM8Gcz5Pf8/holy-longing-advent-meditation-hope

The One Reason to Rejoice Always FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - December 14, 2014 ... And so the Church tells us to do what St. Paul tells us to do in that text we just heard from 1 Thessalonians 5. The Church tells us to REJOICE! In fact, she not only tells us to do that, she COMMANDS US to do it! "Gaudere" in Latin is the verb that means "to rejoice," but "gaudete" is the imperative plural form of the verb—which means it's a command! It's a command that's being given to you, to me—to all of us—and to every single human person on planet earth. "REJOICE!" ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-one-reason-to-rejoice-always.html

This Is True CREO EN DIOS! - December 10, 2014 There is a wonderful Advent prayer by Daniel Berrigan's Testimony: The Word Made Flesh that I often use at the beginning of Advent programs I give. I smiled when I read someone's post of it on Facebook this morning and decided to share it here. It conveys beautifully the hope that is the central message of the Advent season.

Not only does it feel the unseen presence of God himself, its Creator, it sees him openly, working and making it holy. ...http://freethroughtruth.blogspot.com/2014/12/feast-of-immaculate-conception.html

Homily: Advent Stillness BUKAS PALAD - December 6, 2014 ... love for us—always faithful, always enduring, always saving. By using today's readings to focus our Advent preparations on repentance, the Church, like a good mother, assures us again that God's love in Jesus is the divine balm—the holy medication, if you like—that will redeem us from sinfulness. We would be so, so wrong to misinterpret today's readings as permission to continue fixating ourselves on our unworthiness because of sin. Advent exists to redirect our gaze again ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2014/12/homily-advent-stillness.html

Watch! YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - November 29, 2014 ... loved one is a factor of how much we care about the one who is coming. It is God that calls us to be prepared for the coming of his Son.

In fact, He provides the solution and gives us the answer to the problem of lost spiritual fervor in our First Reading. The answer is time . There are two different words in the Greek language for time. The first is chronos , where we get the concept of chronological time.

It will be decided whether I will be sent to Hell or Heaven. Part of problem today is that we tend not to really believe in Hell any more, so that we just gloss over the words we heard the Lord Jesus say, as He said many times, of this place where "there will be weeping and grinding of teeth" (Mt 25:30) for all eternity. Likewise, our modern world is so unwilling to face death that we avoid texts like the ...http://fatherdylanjames.blogspot.com/2014/11/purgatory-33rd-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

God wants us to dig deep into our faith or lack thereof, and our Holy Father, armed not with a hammer but with a compass as his tool of choice, per Father Gordon, is charting the course for the Church of today.
