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 ...http://fsppostulants.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-light-of-christ.html

Gaudete Sunday, Cycle B LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - December 16, 2014 In the 4 th Century, the Advent season was much different than it is today. In fact, originally, on November 11 th , the Feast Day of St. Martin of Tours, what was known as St. Martin's Lent, would begin. It consisted of prayer, of penance and fasting, and it would consist of 5 Sundays. Later, 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 and religious were bound ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2014/12/gaudete-sunday-cycle-b.html

As he continues to challenge the church and the world, Francis urges all to say no to selfishness and spiritual sloth. Let us not allow the reality of our faith to wear down and degenerate into small-mindedness. Let us not embrace "a tomb psychology that develops and slowly transforms Christians into mummies in a museum." Rather, let us say yes to Christ, yes to God, yes to the Spirit and to all the new relationships brought out by Christ. Let us embrace "the challenges of ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2014/12/enlivened-by-joy-gaudete-sunday.html

Stillness and Joy HEART OF A MOTHER - December 9, 2014 It has been a wild and crazy fall, my friends! My husband is taking some coursework for a few months at the University of Virginia, so we have rented a house and are here as a family for a bit. What a tremendous blessing it has been to cancel all of our obligations for a few months, load up the van with clothes and books, and drive halfway across the country for a new adventure! If we were not homeschooling, if I was not a stay-at-home mom, this would not be possible. But, ...http://heartofamother.blogspot.com/2014/12/stillness-and-joy.html

Lessons I Learned From an Advent Wreath MORE THAN ENOUGH - December 9, 2014 ... fall 2009, I finally purchased an Advent wreath online. Prior to this, I had made one each year with pillar candles and greenery. But as my children were growing, I wanted a wreath that was ours, that represented tradition and consistency. I kept waiting and waiting for the wreath to arrive. And then, I found out it was on backorder! Of course, I panicked, as Advent drew closer and closer, and we were without an Advent wreath! I remember desiring a more peaceful approach to ...http://morethanenough7.blogspot.com/2014/12/lessons-i-learned-from-advent-wreath.html

The Return of the Prodigal Son PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - December 5, 2014 I remember many years ago, the fall of 1993 to be more exact, when I began to have thoughts that Christianity really might be true. I started reading the Bible and watching programs on television. Finally, I went to Father Paul Wolf who was the pastor at St. John's at the time. "What should I do next, Father?" I asked. He gave me some study material on the Gospel of Luke. For the next two or three months I wrapped myself in this gospel and fell in love with it. One of ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-return-of-prodigal-son.html

Advent: Be Prepared JOE CATHOLIC - November 30, 2014 Definition The term advent derives from the Latin ad venio , which means to "to come."

So much has happened in these years both personally and with friends and family. It also seems that the world has accelerated toward complete destruction in the areas of perversion, denial of freedom of conscience, and unjust wars of all kinds ...http://www.sufferingwithjoy.com/2014/11/29/being-thankful/

It is, instead, given to us as a kind of stage. We are not destined to sit as spectators in the audience. We are the main actors, the participants in a divine drama that is being told and retold through constantly changing scenarios. In this ongoing drama, Christ himself plays a part. However, He doesn't necessarily take the leading role, where we would all easily recognize that it is He. Instead, Christ ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2014/11/christ-king-and-shepherd.html

On Second Thought, Maybe This Was a Good Day NARU HODO - November 13, 2014 Today was our first snow fall of the season: not a lot, just enough to say it snowed. The house feels cold, the sky is grey, and my children and I were exceptionally unmotivated to do much that required a great outlay of energy. Some days are like that, and I'm ok with it. And somehow this seems to fit with a little flash of insight I had when praying this morning. It fits with, or rather follows on from, the post I wrote yesterday . It was after one of ...http://lift-up-your-hearts.blogspot.com/2014/11/on-second-thought-maybe-this-was-good.html
