Reflection: Matthew 24:42-51 THE DOME BLOG - August 27, 2015 Thursday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time — Matthew 24:42-51 Stay awake! These are Jesus' words to us today. He tells us that we do not know the day nor the time when the Lord will come to us. Thus, each and every moment we must be awake and watchful. This may sound impossible to do. However, I think of parents who have young children. I assume their radar is always tuned into where their children are and what they are doing. It becomes second nature. I assume that ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-2442-51.html

So Very Near REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 26, 2015 The Psalm response for today is "You have searched me and know me. Lord" from Psalm 139 - one of my favorites. The reflection given by Father Austin Fleming is excellent and I shall be quoting a bit from him. His Concord Pastor is one of my favorite blogs but this reflection is in "Give Us This Day": "Lord, you are near, so very near. You search my heart, inside and out. You know me better, more intimately, than I know myself. You know ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2015/08/so-very-near.html

Reflection: Matthew 23:27-32 THE DOME BLOG - August 26, 2015 Wednesday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time — Matthew 23:27-32 Today in the Gospel, Jesus continues his diatribe about the Pharisees. He bluntly calls them hypocrites. He likens them to "whitewashed tombs" which look beautiful but deep within the tombs are nothing but bones and filth. Place yourself in the Pharisees' shoes. How would you react if someone accused you of the depth of hypocrisy that Jesus was accusing the Pharisees of? The Pharisees appeared to be ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-2327-32.html

Reflection: Matthew 23:23-26 THE DOME BLOG - August 25, 2015 Tuesday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time — Matthew 23:23-26 Today the opening words of the Gospel are: "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites!" Once again Jesus does not mince any words with these supposed religious leaders. Jesus criticizes these pious men for tithing but also neglecting the essential aspects of the law: judgment, mercy and fidelity. He scathingly calls the scribes and Pharisees "blind guides" who "strain out the gnat and swallow the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-2323-26.html

Reflection: John 6:60-69 THE DOME BLOG - August 23, 2015 Sunday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time — John 6:60-69 Today's Gospel reading is a continuation of last Sunday's reading when Jesus tells his listeners that he is "the Bread of Life." This theme is continued today. Jesus says: "I am the living bread come down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world." Did the disciples and his listeners have a clue what Jesus was ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-john-660-69.html

To Whom Shall We Go? THE WORD FOR THE WORLD - August 22, 2015 ... ORDINARY TIME – B John 6:60-69 After four Sundays, we have now come to the conclusion of chapter 6 in John's Gospel which is a theological reflection on Jesus as the Bread of Life. It started with a miracle that was witnessed by five thousand people, who after eating their fill, wanted to make Jesus their king. Jesus offered them something greater than their earthly desires but all they wanted was to satisfy their physical hunger. The word crisis comes from the Greek ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/KJEIY/~3/dTryPu6Solg/to-whom-shall-we-go.html

Reflection: Matthew 22:34-40 THE DOME BLOG - August 21, 2015 Friday of the 20th Week in Ordinary Time — Matthew 22:34-40 Today the Pharisees decide to test Jesus. They had heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees. They gathered around Jesus, and one of the scholars of the law asked Jesus: "What is the greatest commandment in the law?" Naturally, Jesus replied: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind." Jesus affirmed that this commandment was the first and the greatest of all the commandments. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-2234-40.html

Beauty Is Everywhere! REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 20, 2015 I read this and it began a real reflection on the beauty that surrounds us when we have eyes to see. "God has made everything beautiful . Seeing life through that lens is profound and life-giving." If we reflect on this, we will see that all is gift. There is beauty everywhere! Beauty is easily found in nature, but also in people, in the events that pop up during a normal day. We just need to be alert to capture the beauty that God gives us in so many ways. Where am ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2015/08/beauty-is-everywhere.html

Reflection: Matthew 22:1-14 THE DOME BLOG - August 20, 2015 Thursday of the 20th Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 22:1-14 Today Jesus likens the "Kingdom of heaven" to a wedding feast given by a king for his son and his bride. The king sent his servants out to invite many guests. However, some of the guests who were invited refused to attend the feast. The king, however, was determined to have a great gathering for this special occasion. He once again sent out servants. The servants once again went out and informed other invited ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-221-14.html

It's "Worth Revisiting Wednesday - Do You Really Want to Get Well? HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - August 19, 2015 ... Wikimedia Commons ) Did you notice in [today's] Gospel (John 5:1-16) that the paralytic did not answer Jesus' question: "Do you want to get well?" Instead, he complained and whined about the injustice of not having anyone to put him into the healing waters of the pool once they were "stirred up". In not answering the specific question posed to him, this paralyzed man was much like many of us. One of the most difficult things I could get my clients to understand when I ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2015/08/its-worth-revisiting-wednesday-do-you.html

Reflection: Matthew 20:1-16 THE DOME BLOG - August 19, 2015 Wednesday of the 20th Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 20:1-16 Today we hear the parable of the landowner who went out at dawn to hire day laborers to work in his vineyard. He agreed to pay them the standard daily wage. Several hours later, the landowner saw several more workers in the marketplace. He told them: "Go to my vineyard and I will pay you a fair wage." So they went to the vineyard. The landowner went out at noon and again at 3:00 p.m. He sent more laborers to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-201-16.html

Reflection: Matthew 19:23-30 THE DOME BLOG - August 18, 2015 Tuesday of the 20th Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 19:23-30 Today Jesus tells his disciples that it is easier for a "camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God." For many of us, this statement of Jesus sounds strange. Jesus was speaking of the narrow and low gates of the city walls which were used by travelers after dark when the public gate was locked. A normal sized person had to lower himself to enter through this gate. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-1923-30.html

The Questions of Jesus REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - August 17, 2015 ... I have trouble moving the cursor in this blog when it decides to start in the middle. Just be patient and I shall try to learn how to manage this. Today I want to talk about the book my reflection group chose. It is by John Dear and the title is "The Questions of Jesus: Challenging Ourselves to Discover Life's Great Answers" and we are to cover the first questions grouped under "Invitation". There are three questions to ponder and I expect all my readers may ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2015/08/the-questions-of-jesus.html

Reflection: Matthew 19:16-22 THE DOME BLOG - August 17, 2015 Monday of the 20th Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 19:16-22 Today we hear the account of the young man who came to Jesus asked him: "What must I do to gain eternal life?" As we know, Jesus does not answer the young man's question. Rather Jesus says to him: "Why you do ask me? There is only One who is good." He then tells the man that if he wants to enter eternal life, he should keep the commandments. To his surprise, the young man told Jesus that he already was observing ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-1916-22.html

Reflection: John 6:51-58 THE DOME BLOG - August 16, 2015 Sunday of the 20th Week in Ordinary Time: John 6:51-58 Today Jesus tells his disciples: "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever." However, he doesn't stop there. Jesus continues: "The bread that I give is my flesh for the life of the world." Each of these statements of Jesus must have been pretty outlandish to the people of his day. Today if an individual told us that they would live forever, most ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-john-651-58.html

Reflection: Matthew 19:3-12 THE DOME BLOG - August 14, 2015 Friday of the 19th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 19:3-12 Today the Pharisees come to Jesus to question him again. They ask him: "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause whatever?" Jesus replied to them: "Haven't you read the Scriptures? From the beginning God made them male and female. It is for this reason that a man leaves his father and mother to join with a woman and makes her his wife. The two of them become one flesh! And what God has ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-193-12.html

Reflection: Matthew 18:22-19:1 THE DOME BLOG - August 13, 2015 Thursday of the 19th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 18:22-19:1 Today Jesus continues the dialogue he began in yesterday's Gospel reading. Peter comes to Jesus wanting some concrete answers. Peter asks Jesus: "If someone sins against me, how many times do I have to forgive them? Is seven times enough?" Jesus must have blown Peter away with his answer. He looked at Peter and says: "I say to you, not seven times but seventy times." Wouldn't you have loved to see the look ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflection-matthew-1822-191.html
