Reflection: John 19:25-27 THE DOME BLOG - September 15, 2014 Monday of the 24th Week in Ordinary Time – John 19:25-27 Today is the feast of "Our Lady of Sorrows." This devotion to Mary dates from the 14th century. The Gospel today depicts Mary standing at the foot of the cross watching her son die a horrible death. How many parents and family members have stood "at the foot of the cross" watching someone they love die? Watching, waiting, knowing what the end will be but faithfully staying with the one they ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-john-1925-27.html

Pope's Morning Homily: Learn From Our Lady of Sorrows MISSIONARY PRIEST BLOGGER - September 15, 2014 ... Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows during Monday morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, with a reflection on how Mary learned, obeyed and suffered at the foot of the Cross. The Holy Father said that in the liturgy of the day first we are shown the glorious Cross, then the meek ​​and humble Mother. In the Letter to the Hebrews, "Paul emphasizes three strong words": he says that Jesus "learned, obeyed and suffered". "It's the opposite of what had happened to our father Adam, who did ...http://missionarypriest.blogspot.com/2014/09/popes-morning-homily-learn-from-our.html

Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - September 15, 2014 (Image source: Wikimedia Commons ) Today on this memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows, let me share a unique reflection offered by the late Father Raymond, O.C.S.O. in his book, God, A Woman and The Way - a book I highly recommend you read. One of the seven dolors of our Blessed Mother; The Flight and Exile into Egypt: "There was pain in Egypt - yet, I say it was heaven. Mary saw raw, rampant paganism all about her, yet nursed God at her breast; she had to listen ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2014/09/memorial-of-our-lady-of-sorrows.html

Reflection: John 3:13-17 THE DOME BLOG - September 14, 2014 Sunday of the 24th Week in Ordinary Time – John 3:13-17 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus talking with Nicodemus. Jesus is giving Nicodemus a preview of what is to come in his life. Just as in the desert Moses lifted up a serpent, Jesus also will be lifted up so that we may have eternal life! Jesus is speaking of his passion and death that is to come. Jesus had a sense of what would come but Nicodemus and his disciples did not have any idea what he was talking about. Do ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-john-313-17.html

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross HEART FOR GOD - September 14, 2014 ... 3:13–17 The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Each one of the Scripture texts for today is worthy of book-length reflection, but perhaps it's best to make three basic points . The Numbers story illustrates the nature of sin: Sin is a poisonous snake always ready to bite, and its venom means death (apart from intervention beyond anything we are able to do for ourselves). [1] If you are "playing with sin" today––any ...http://heartforgodltd.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-exaltation-of-holy-cross.html

Becoming Holy Καθολικός διάκονος - September 14, 2014 In my reflection on today's readings I mentioned the three-fold movement of salvation: redemption, justification, and sanctification. Today I was directed to a post on a blog I had not read in far too long: Glory to God for All Things , by Fr. Stephen Freeman, an Orthodox priest. His post "Christianity in a Plain Brown Wrapper" is what drew my attention this afternoon. In this post Fr Stephen seeks to correct an imbalance that has ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/09/becoming-holy.html

Reflection: Luke 6:43-49 THE DOME BLOG - September 13, 2014 Saturday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time- Luke 6:43-49 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus talking about trees and the quality of fruit they bear. Jesus clearly says that each tree is known by the fruit it produces. Jesus takes this image one step further. He says that each of us also is known by the fruit that we bear! When I reflect on this statement, it makes me wonder what type of fruit am I bearing? Am I producing good fruit, rotten fruit or fruit that is edible but not ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-643-49.html

Another Feast of Our Lady REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - September 12, 2014 Names are important. Today, we celebrate the naming of the Blessed Virgin Mary who is now not only the Mother of Jesus and therefore the Mother of God, but she is our mother, too. I have been so busy all week but intend to have a slow week end; maybe I will be able to really get some work done. I do not know why this week seemed so busy. I did get both gas and a flu shot on my way to the University yesterday morning. I made a huge salad for the reflection ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2014/09/another-feast-of-our-lady.html

Reflection: Luke 6:39-42 THE DOME BLOG - September 12, 2014 Friday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 6:39-42 In today's Gospel, Jesus continues his teaching and formation of the apostles. Today Jesus is inviting us to become aware of how quickly we may jump to judgment of another person. At times, judgment of another person comes so automatically that we may not even consciously recognize it. Jesus may simply want us to be aware of what is going on in our minds. Once we are aware, then we have a choice about ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-639-42.html

Reflection: Luke 6:27-38 THE DOME BLOG - September 11, 2014 Thursday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 6:27-38 The Gospel for today is a difficult one to hear. It is even more difficult to live out in our day to day lives. Today Jesus says to his followers, to us: "Love your enemies! Be kind, be good to those who hate or persecute you!" What is your instinctual response to Jesus' words? These words of Jesus are very familiar to us. We have heard these words numerous times. I assume that all of us at some point ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-627-38.html

Am I Open to Formation? REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - September 11, 2014 Our parish has asked for a day of prayer and fasting today for growth in holiness... the Pastor always writes a page in the bulletin and this time he is offering four concrete characteristics that can help us remain open to formation. 1. Humility. It is said that there are many who want to learn, but few who want to be taught....We must recognize our need to grow to learn, to be formed - and be open. 2. Docility . In its oldest form, "docility" means "teachableness; ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2014/09/am-i-open-to-formation.html

In Remembrance of September 11, 2001 LIFE AT THE FRONTIER - September 11, 2014 U.S. Navy photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Michael W. Pendergrass Thirteen years ago today, I overheard a coworker down the hall from my office telling someone else about planes hitting the World Trade Center. I checked in on the Internet and on news radio for reports on what would develop into the the modern era's day of infamy. We know of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, but there was also the attack that did not occur because of the heroic actions ...http://lifeatthefrontier.blogspot.com/2014/09/in-remembrance-of-september-11-2001.html

Reflection: Luke 6:20-26 THE DOME BLOG - September 10, 2014 Wednesday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time – Luke 6:20-26 The message in today's Gospel is one that most of us do not want to hear. The first words in this passage are: Jesus says, "To you I say 'love your enemies.' However, Jesus does not stop there. He also tells the crowds that they should "bless the people who wronged them and pray for the ones who treated them badly." Jesus goes even further and tells them they should "offer the other cheek." The people must ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-620-26.html

Occupations and Vocation KITCHEN TABLE CHATS - September 9, 2014 Today at Catholic Stand I revisit a topic I have written about several times: balancing professional and domestic life. This most recent reflection approaches the topic from my role as a teacher of college students. Another semester is beginning, and I am back in the classroom, teaching young college students about the parts and pieces of the human body. I stand before them and introduce myselfhttp://catholic-mom.blogspot.com/2014/09/occupations-and-vocation.html

The Sacrament of Reconciliation REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - September 9, 2014 Today I want to share with you a quote from Walter Kasper's book on Mercy as I find it helpful: "The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a true refuge for sinners, which all of us are. Here the burdens that we carry around with us, are taken from us. Nowhere else do we encounter the mercy of God so immediately, so directly, and so concretely as when we are told in the name of Jesus: "Your sins are forgiven!" Certainly no one finds it easy to humbly confess his or her sins and, ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-sacrament-of-reconciliation.html

Reflection: Luke 6:12-19 THE DOME BLOG - September 9, 2014 Tuesday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 6:12-19 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus going up the mountain to pray. He spent the whole night in prayer. It is immediately after this time of deep solitude and prayer that he calls the twelve apostles. It is at this point Jesus begins to preach, to teach and to heal. However, the word about Jesus must have already spread. The people of the area must have known that there was something very unusual about this man Jesus. As ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-612-19.html

Eucharistic Reflection - Our Lives Must Be Woven Around the Eucharist HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - September 9, 2014 ... hungry for souls. Nowhere does the Gospel say: "Go away," but always "Come to Me." Our lives must be woven around the Eucharist. Ask Jesus to be with you, to work with you that you may be able to pray the work. You must really be sure that you have received Jesus. After that, you cannot give your tongue, your thoughts, or your heart to bitterness. Put your sins in the chalice for the precious blood to wash away. One drop is capable of washing away all the sins of the world. When communicating ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2014/09/eucharistic-reflection-our-lives-must.html

Reflection: Matthew 1:1-16, 18-23 THE DOME BLOG - September 8, 2014 The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Matthew 1:1-16, 18-23 Today is the feast of the birth of Mary. This feast is an ancient one that began as early as the 5th century. On this day, the Church celebrates Mary's personal holiness as well as her call to be the mother of Jesus. Mary must have been an amazing young woman. She must have begun developing a very personal relationship with God at a very young age. Over the years, she must have learned that God was ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-matthew-11-16-18-23.html
