An Explanation of the Sacramental Oils TOM PERNA - March 31, 2015 ... home diocese. To say it was sacred and beautiful would be the understatement of the year. It was as if heaven and earth united in the Cathedral through the solemn liturgy and sacred music. Besides the primary purpose of the Chrism Mass, which is the blessing and distribution of the Sacramental Oils, which I will discuss shortly, there is also another purpose of the Chrism Mass – the Renewal of Commitment to Priestly Service. The Bishop asks the priests a set of statements renewing their ...http://tomperna.org/2015/03/31/an-explanation-of-the-sacramental-oils/

Right and Just LEX ORANDI, LEX CREDENDI - March 29, 2015 ... us give thanks to the Lord, our God." But, what does "right and just" mean, especially now that we have begun Holy Week? I believe that it means that we allow ourselves to delve deeper into the sacred Mysteries that these beautiful rites present to us. I believe that if we can take the time to study what these mean and engrave them in our hearts, we can work towards an authentic and deep offering of what is "right and just" to the Lord. Two friends of mine, on different occasions, each sent me ...http://benedictgal-lexorandilexcredendi.blogspot.com/2015/03/right-and-just.html

HERE I now see in the Catholic Herald a reaction/response to the priests' letter from His Eminence Vincent Card. Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster. His Eminence isn't happy. Here is his statement (my emphases ): "Every priest in England and Wales has been asked to reflect on the Synod discussion. It is my understanding that this has been taken up in every diocese, and that channels of communication have been established," the statement ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/qHweICj3XQg/

Annunciation, during this Wednesday's general audience held in a rain-soaked St. Peter's Square, the Pope announced to the faithful that today would be a special catechesis, a pause for prayer during his path of reflections on the family.

The New Evangelization and the Domestic Church - Pope Benedict XVI on the Connection Between the Two NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - March 24, 2015 Why the beauty of the prayer corner in the family home is crucial to the New Evangelization The New Evangelization has become a buzzword of the age. Used by Pope St John Paul II, it refers to the need to reach the faithless in the West whose parents and grandparents were Christian. But how do we reach these people who have no faith, but think they already know enough about Christianity to be hostile to it? In a short and clear paper written in 2000, Benedict XVI outlined ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/vpcEFoiwPnQ/the-new-evangelization-and-domestic.html

Let Your Heart Take Courage GETTING TO THE POINT - March 23, 2015 ... me; rescue me speedily!.. Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God… Because of all my adversaries I have become a reproach, especially to my neighbors, and an object of dread to my acquaintances; those who see me in the street flee from me. I have been forgotten like one who is dead; I have become like a broken vessel. For I hear the whispering of many—terror on every side! — as they scheme together against me, as they ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/03/let-your-heart-take-courage.html

Pope Francis and "Doctors of the Law" FR. Z'S BLOG - March 18, 2015 Here is an interesting contrast. First, a snip from an off-the-cuff, non-Magisterial remark of Pope Francis during a daily homily. Note his disparaging words about "doctors of the law". Hmmm… it seems to me that there is something missing. Of course these are only off-the-cuff remarks that have no magisterial weight whatsoever and no preacher can be expected in a short time to hit every possible point. But it seems to me that he has set up a straw man: who the heck ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/Gh3DFDXuwnw/

Every Christian community knows that it is called upon to open itself up and to irradiate the light of the Gospel; it cannot stay closed within its traditions, noble though they may be. It must come out of its 'enclosure', firm in faith, supported by prayer and encouraged by pastors, to live and announce the new life of which it is a depository, that of Christ, Saviour of ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/03/to-bishops-of-bosnia-and-herzegovina.html

Card. Burke's Magisterial Talk in England: If We Can't Get the Family Right, New Evangelization Will Fail. FR. Z'S BLOG - March 10, 2015 ... under attack for decades, the Church has remained a faithful herald of the truth about God's plan for man and woman in the faithful, indissoluble and procreative union of marriage. In the present time, certainly under pressure from a totally secularized culture, a growing confusion and even error has entered into the Church, which would weaken seriously, if not totally compromise, the Church's witness to the detriment of the whole of society. The confusion and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/EvfPUnbSpRk/

Bad Idea: Rosary During Mass THE FIFTH COLUMN - March 10, 2015 ... mysteries now generally accepted were not uniformly adhered to even by the Dominicans themselves. The current form of the Hail Mary , which comprises the greater part of the prayer is not exactly ancient either. In point of fact there is little or no trace of the Hail Mary as an accepted devotional formula before about 1050... In the time of St. Louis the Ave Maria ended with the words of St. Elizabeth : "benedictus fructus ventris tui"... it may be noticed that in some ...http://skellmeyer.blogspot.com/2015/03/bad-idea-rosary-during-mass.html

In Thanksgiving for Cardinal Egan HANDING ON THE FAITH - March 7, 2015 One of the hallmarks of Edward Cardinal Egan's time in the Archdiocese of New York, first as Vicar for Education and later as Archbishop, was his devotion to the ministry of catechesis. He collaborated closely with Sr. Joan Curtin, CND, director of the Catechetical Office and her staff, many of whom are still actively engaged in the ministry. Even in his retirement, he made time to be with the archdiocesan, regional and parish catechetical leaders, and with their ...http://blog.archny.org/faith/?p=956

Silence in Church, 3rd Sunday of Lent, Year B FATHER DYLAN'S SERMONS - March 7, 2015 ... pattern, a regular plan of prayer do I have? Do I have a brief morning prayer, one I say when I wake? Do I have a routine for praying before I sleep? Do I thank God for the good things I've received? And tell Him I'm sorry for my daily sins. To sum that up. Pope Francis is a joyful man, but he is solemn and focussed when saying Holy Mass. We might even say that He has joy in his heart BECAUSE he is focussed properly in his prayers and at Mass. For us too, if ...http://fatherdylanjames.blogspot.com/2015/03/silence-in-church-3rd-sunday-of-lent.html

There Was Joy in the Catacombs SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - March 2, 2015 ... obviously intellig ent, faithful, and willing to fight for the faith. She is an intense, pull-no-punches type, though, and since I don't necessarily agree with all of her positions I didn't want to get lots of emails lamenting the link and my intransigence, etc. You see, I don't mind disagreeing with people for whom I have respect, and I don't mind acknowledging agreement with others with whom I don't always agree. I know this is common sense, but in the social media-driven, ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2015/03/there-was-joy-in-catacombs.html
