Monday Morning Offering: 2/8 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - February 7, 2016 ... many, many times... As my New Year's resolutions often quickly fade, so my Lenten promises sometimes last no longer than the ashes on my brow... Keep me faithful this Lent to what I promise for prayer, for fasting and for works of mercy...

Simeon thus foreshadowed the crucifixion and the sorrows of Mary at seeing the death of her Son. The name Candlemas comes from the activities associated with the feast. It came to be known as the Candle Mass. In the Western Church, a procession with lighted candles is the distinctive rite. According to post Vatican-II discipline, (if possible) the beeswax candles are to be blessed somewhere other than where the Mass is held.

God Is With Us CONFESSIONS OF A CATHOLIC MUTT - December 24, 2015 ... parts that we don't want to talk about. Because the important part is that 1) God is with us, and 2) we can choose to bring all of what we have and offer it back to Him. I just want to say an extra special thanks to my prayer buddy this Advent. I feel like God's grace is working into some of the places of my heart that have been a little hardened by this fatigue, and I am grateful for that. I feel a little more willing to let go of what I want for my life, and trust whatever ...http://catholicmutt.blogspot.com/2015/12/god-is-with-us.html

Third Sunday of Advent, Cycle C (Gaudete Sunday) LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - December 13, 2015 In the 4 th Century, the season of Advent was very different than it is today. In fact, Advent used to begin on November 11 th , the Feast Day of St. Martin of Tours, which also came to be known as St. Martin's Lent. It would consist of prayer, of penance and fasting, and it would make up 5 Sundays. Later on, Pope Gregory VII would reduce the Sundays in Advent to four, with a fast on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It was then thought that only clergy ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2015/12/third-sunday-of-advent-cycle-c-gaudete.html

Homily for December 13 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - December 13, 2015 ... urging us in the second scripture today: Rejoice alway s! That sentiment might be hard for some us to swallow, especially if we find the holidays to be a difficult time. But there's also a truth, a wisdom, in Paul's words that can serve us well. The joy St. Paul writes about is something quite different than being "merry" in December every year. The joy of faith is of far greater strength and substance than "yuletide glee." Rather, the joy of faith is rather like a river coursing through the ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2015/12/homily-for-december-13.html

It could be something exterior to us, like a dog barking next door or someone in the adoration chapel who plays with their rosary beads. Or the distraction could be something interior, like wandering thoughts or that "to-do list" that constantly pops ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2015/12/4-distractions-during-prayer-and-how-to.html

Just relax. Take it easy. Go with the flow. You're grand just as you are. Why begin again? You've tried it all before. Has prayer made a difference? Why begin again?" This is devil's tired, old discourse. He may vary the words, but he never changes his message. Pope Saint Leo the Great has an altogether different message. He speaks in ...http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2015/12/to-begin-again.html

Reflection 2, the Second Sunday of Advent, December 6, 2015 PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - December 5, 2015 ... Parousia. These words refer to the coming of Christ. How? In two ways, first, we celebrate that He already came through Mary in the little town of Bethlehem about 2,000 years ago. We also look forward to His coming again. The readings and the spirituality of the season are to wake us up and to help us be alert. These days, I am afraid of how few people are alert. Perhaps we are numbed by all the predictions and dates and all the end times hysteria. This is too bad, but Jesus ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2015/12/reflection-2-december-6-2015.html

The Christmas Tree CATHOLIC HOTDISH - December 4, 2015 ... fall of humanity, a dark moment in history to coincide with the darkness of the winter solstice. The play had a Paradise Tree, the tree of life, a green fir tree decorated with apples, the forbidden fruit. Over time, to add hope to such a depressing event, the tree was also decorated with bits of bread or crackers: sin came from eating the apples; grace comes from receiving the Eucharist. Eventually, the popularity of mystery plays faded, but the tradition of the tree remained ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CatholicHotdish/~3/FzzO2umEp4Q/

Homily for November 29 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - November 29, 2015 ... rather, I'm wondering about the seasons of our hearts… My heart has seasons. I'll bet yours does, too. My heart has many seasons: some last only a few days; others drag on for weeks and months. The seasons of my heart may –or may not- coincide with nature's seasons. And so it is that my heart might enjoy a summery warmth in the middle of January, or feel the nip of a cold-shouldered frost in early August. My heart might grieve and my tears drop like falling leaves in the spring ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2015/11/homily-for-november-29.html

The Hope of Advent GOD IN ALL THINGS - November 23, 2015 As we approach the season of Advent it's worth reflecting on our brokenness. We face the awful violent attacks in Paris, Beirut, and Mali. Our world lives in a history of wars, division, oppression, racism, and prejudice. Closer to home our families face their own challenges: grudges are held, relationships are broken over pettiness, and marriages fall apart. It's hard to see the progress, communion, and love that exists amidst the darkness. The world is ...http://godinallthings.com/2015/11/23/the-hope-of-advent/

Making Advent a Game Changer EYES ON HEAVEN - November 18, 2015 ... though, I deeply appreciate the length of the Maronite Advent, which averages out to be six weeks instead of four. This gives more time for contemplating the Gospel narrative leading up to the birth of Jesus and for allowing a sense of longing for the Lord's coming to grow in our hearts. Right now, my husband and I have three kids, four and under, all born in the month of February. If you do the math, that means that I've been about 6 months pregnant during 3 of the last 5 Advents. Expecting a ...http://eyesonheaven.net/making-advent-a-game-changer/
