Arise and Walk SUFFERING WITH JOY - November 16, 2014 ... which the lame man's situation is a pale imitation even if it's a foretelling of what is to come. I look forward to leaping and dancing in the praise of God with my new body some day. We encounter Christ in the confessional where we ask God for the alms of forgiveness and make a firm resolution to "sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin." He gives us a new life every time just as He gave the lame man his legs. Huge weights of sin, making us lame and causing us suffering, are lifted ...http://www.sufferingwithjoy.com/2014/11/16/arise-and-walk/

Purgatory, 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A FATHER DYLAN'S SERMONS - November 15, 2014 ... point out the three things that the dead need our prays for. First, they need our prayers for MERCY in the JUDGEMENT. When I die I will stand before the judgement seat of God. 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 ...http://fatherdylanjames.blogspot.com/2014/11/purgatory-33rd-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

Please Join Us in Praying for the Dearly Departed TRAINING HAPPY HEARTS - November 9, 2014 I did not grow up practicing the tradition of praying for the dead and gaining indulgences , and, until this year, my children were not doing both of these things either.

Then, last month, someone in our local Catholic home educating group asked if any other families gather as a group at a ...http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2014/11/please-join-us-in-praying-for-dearly.html

Faithful Departed? FR RAY BLAKE'S BLOG - November 7, 2014 I am preparing my Remembrance Sunday sermon. It is always a bit trickey, there is no option to offer a Requiem Mass for any else but the 'Faithful Departed' in the Missal. So I am manifestly not praying for all those Jews, Muslims, Hindus, agnostics and atheists who died in the great conflicts of the twentieth century. The rather frightening truth is that we Christians though trusting in the abundant mercy and love of God actually know little about the fate of the unbaptised ...http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/2014/11/faithful-departed.html

All Souls Day ~ November 2nd BATTLE BEADS BLOG - November 2, 2014 All Souls Day follows All Saints Day , and commemorates the faithful departed, i.e. those who die in God's grace and Michelangelo's 'Last Judgement' friendship. Catholics believe that not everyone who dies in God's grace is immediately ready for the Beatific vision, i.e. the direct experience of God and His perfect nature in heaven, so they must be purified of "lesser faults," and the temporal effects of sin. The Catholic Church calls this purification "purgatory." The ...http://battlebeads.blogspot.com/2014/11/all-souls-day-november-2nd.html

Adam and Eve, after their transgression, saw their raw nakedness and were ashamed. They fled into the woods to escape a face-to-face encounter with the Lord God. But the Lord God went in search of them, like the Good Shepherd, intending to bring them to a better state of mind: Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.
