The Light of Christ LET CHRIST BE FORMED IN ME - December 20, 2014 Recently, the theme of Light has been coming up a lot in my prayer. It's a natural advent theme as we reflect on the Incarnation, the moment Divine Light took flesh. During this season, we are invited to allow the Light of Christ to penetrate our hearts and lives in a new way. "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." - John 8:14-15 The convent here in St. Louis is still under construction, but (thanks be ...http://fsppostulants.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-light-of-christ.html

It's. Another. Religion. FR. Z'S BLOG - December 20, 2014 ... and receive it happily and without qualm. The teachers aren't practicing Catholics, the parents aren't practicing Catholics, and the parish priest would never dare suggest to the congregation that they go to confession. He correctly understands that there would be outrage among his flock . The pastor at St. Dismas is a gay man. It is quite possible that this priest—let's call him Fr. Dave—lives a life of celibacy. I have no reason to doubt that he does. He presents himself, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/UGWtXPXipa8/

ALL of Us Must Seek Out God and Repent, Not Just THEM. ARNOBIUS OF SICCA - December 13, 2014 ... God. When a behavior endorsed by our political party of preference is called "sinful" by the Church, we respond by being outraged at the "partisanship" of the bishops. When it is a behavior endorsed by the rival political party, we applaud the Church. But the problem is, what the Church has had to say on right and wrong has predated the Democratic and Republican parties by over 1800 years. How we mistreat others may change in different eras of history, but that doesn't change the fact that ...http://arnobius-of-sicca.blogspot.com/2014/12/all-of-us-must-seek-out-god-and-repent.html

The One Talent, Prayer, Gains All the Rest THE NEW THEOLOGICAL MOVEMENT - November 14, 2014 ... whether good or evil. In this parable, the master gives to the three servants diverse amounts of talents – to the one, five; to another, two; to a third, one. The talents symbolize the good gifts of God without which we can do nothing. Father Cornelius a Lapide, that great Jesuit scholar, tells us that these gifts are gifts of grace, natural gifts, and external goods. And, while it is manifestly true that some receive a greater portion of these good things – for example, many who ...http://newtheologicalmovement.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-one-talent-prayer-gains-all-rest.html

Generosity and Gratitude: The Trap Between PRAYER ON THE HILL - November 7, 2014 ... for some to receive a gift and simply to respond with "Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness." As Christmas looms in a too near future, sometimes it becomes a season guilt: feeling an indebtedness to others who gave gifts to us. Underlying the felt need to respond with an in kind gift. The scientist mentioned above questions such giving. Is it truly given as a sign of friendship or mutual love? Or, as he would say, is it just to make sure that we earn respect or ...http://prayeronthehill.blogspot.com/2014/11/generosity-and-gratitude-trap-between.html

The Holy Origins of Halloween SOUTHERN FRIED CATHOLICISM BLOG - October 31, 2014 ... In fact, the origins of this holiday are not pagan or devilish; they're downright holy , nay, even saintly . Yes. Seriously. Hallow = Holy Let's start with the name. Essentially, the name "Halloween" is a Scottish contraction of the words "Hallows' Evening," which was the old-fashioned English name for the night of October 31, the "eve" of "All Hallows' Day."

The Power of the Desert GOD IN ALL THINGS - October 30, 2014 ... describes certain criteria for distinguishing good impulses from bad ones, the work of the good spirit from the work of the evil spirit. The evil spirit tries to make good things seem bad and bad things seem good. The evil spirit fills us with doubts, self-preoccupations, and anxiousness. It cuts us off from others and God. On the other hand, that which is truly from God will do the opposite—it will lead us beyond ourselves, ignite us with love and gratitude, send us out to serve God and ...http://godinallthings.com/2014/10/30/the-power-of-the-desert/

I live for Jesus in the midst of the world. I learn what it means to view every circumstance through the 'grillwork' of God's will. I do not do this in my own power, but with the grace of God.

Pray to Saints? Why Not Go Directly to God? SHAMELESS POPERY - September 25, 2014 ... directly to God. Such an objection is frivolous and perhaps even evil. Consider three reasons: Such an objection would condemn St. Paul for asking for the prayers of others . St. Paul takes the time to write to the Ephesians to ask for their prayers (Eph. 6:18-20): " Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that utterance may be given me in opening ...http://catholicdefense.blogspot.com/2014/09/pray-to-saints-why-not-go-directly-to.html
