Advent Reflection: Luke 1:26-38 THE DOME BLOG - December 20, 2014 Third Wednesday of Advent – Luke 1:26-38 Today's Gospel opens with the appearance of the Angel Gabriel to Mary. This reading is one of the most familiar stories in the Gospels. The details in the Gospel accounts vary a bit but the basics of the story are similar in the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke. This Gospel is a story that can easily capture our imagination, no matter what our age.

O Adonai: Art's Power GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - December 18, 2014 ... the Law on Sinai. O come and save us with your mighty power." Yesterday's reflection was all about my own lack of wisdom, even though I can be somewhat of a "wise guy" at times. Today I am drawn into thinking about God's appearance to Moses and I am left wondering about the ways that God appears to me in the "burning bushes" of my daily life. As part of my work, I get to see the various stages of the editorial, production, and proofing processes of various ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2014/12/o-adonai-arts-power.html

Advent Reflection: Matthew 1:18-25 THE DOME BLOG - December 18, 2014 Third Wednesday of Advent – Matthew 1:18-25 Today we hear the story of how the birth of Jesus came about. This is a story we have heard countless times. There is the saying: "familiarity breeds contempt." In this case, familiarity with this Gospel may prompt us to only hear the words and not listen intently to the message of this Gospel. Do you ever put yourself in Mary's place? Do you ever imagine what thoughts went through Mary's mind when all this happened? ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-reflection-matthew-118-25.html

Advent Reflection: Matthew 1:1-17 THE DOME BLOG - December 17, 2014 Third Wednesday of Advent – Matthew 1:1-17 The Gospel today is the genealogy of Jesus Christ.

As human beings, we ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-reflection-matthew-11-17.html

Pause for Prayer: THURSDAY 12/18 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - December 17, 2014 Reflecting on revolution, theologian Rubem Alves provides a reflection on hope, especially apt for Advent. Today's Pause for Prayer follows below. What is hope? It is the presentiment that imagination is more real and reality is less real than it looks. Hope is the hunch that the overwhelming brutality of facts that oppress and repress us is not the last word. It is the suspicion that reality is more complex than the realists want us to believe - that ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2014/12/pause-for-prayer-thursday-1218.html

Hieronymous Bosch and the Four Last Things FREEDOM THROUGH TRUTH - December 17, 2014 ... miraculous work of Divine Mercy in the story he previously told of his compatriot and mentee Maximilian Pornchai Moontri, in A Stitch in Time, Threads of the Tapestry of God . Then he weaves for us a glimpse at one of the Last 4 Things, which the Church has always held as Death, Judgement, Heaven and Hell, and writes of Anthony Begin, and how he has had a miracle in his life that has deferred his own death from imminence to an indeterminate time in the future. It seems that God is not done ...http://freethroughtruth.blogspot.com/2014/12/hieronymous-bosch-and-four-last-things.html

Advent Reflection: Matthew 21:23-27 THE DOME BLOG - December 15, 2014 Third Monday of Advent – Matthew 21:23-27 The setting for today's Gospel is the temple. When Jesus entered the temple, the elders and chief priests approached Him. They immediately began questioning Him. They asked Him who it was that gave Him authority to heal and preach? Instead of answering their questions, Jesus turns the table on the elders and priests by asking them where they believed John's baptism was from? Did they believe it was from heaven or did they think ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-reflection-matthew-2123-27.html

Life Up Your Hearts HOPE-FULL SIGNS - December 14, 2014 The Church encourages us today to Rejoice! This third Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday, calls us to pause in the middle of Advent and stir up our hearts to be expectant for the coming of the Lord. It is not always easy to rejoice - in the midst of our life's challenges. But as Christians we are a people of holy joy; through the grace of our Baptism we should be filled with joy. Father Robert Barron has a wonderful reflection and homily on this truth in ...http://hopefullsigns.blogspot.com/2014/12/life-up-your-hearts.html

Advent Reflection: John 1:6-8, 19-28 THE DOME BLOG - December 14, 2014 John 1:6-8, 19-28 – Third Sunday of Advent The main character in today's Gospel is not Jesus. It is John the Baptist. In the Gospel we hear John's testimony to the "light." In his preaching, John makes it clear that he is not the light. John's role is to prepare the people for Jesus' coming so that when he comes, they will recognize Him and believe in Him. The people continued to barrage John with questions. They ask if he is Elijah or is he the Prophet that was to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-reflection-john-16-8-19-28.html

Advent Reflection: Matthew 17:9a, 10-13 THE DOME BLOG - December 13, 2014 Matthew 17:9a, 10-13 – Second Week of Advent Elijah, the prophet, is the central character in today's first reading as well as in the Gospel. The reading from the Book of Sirach describes Elijah as a man who was bigger than life. He would be a great character for an adventure movie. The reading from Sirach also says that Elijah's words "flamed like a furnace." What a powerful image! He also brought down fire to the earth and did many other astonishing ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-reflection-matthew-179a-10-13.html

Advent Reflection: Matthew 11:11-15 THE DOME BLOG - December 11, 2014 Second Week of Advent – Matthew 11:11-15 Jesus continues his preaching to the crowds today. He is speaking of John the Baptist. He tells the people that no one has been born who is greater than John. Jesus follows this statement by saying that the "least one" in the Kingdom of heaven is greater than John. Who is the "least" in our world? In our town or city or family, who is the "least" among us? Do we see these individuals or are they simply part of the background of ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-reflection-matthew-1111-15.html

Joy in the Memories A BIT OF THE BLARNEY - December 11, 2014 Today I join Meri for Share the Joy . For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.

Second Friday of Advent: "Bring Me Flesh and Bring Me Wine", but Not Yet... GODZDOGZ - December 11, 2014 ... said about a particular Gospel passage. A more textual reflection on today's Gospel reading, which I wrote last year, is available here . Taking a slightly different tack, the theme I want to focus on this year is celebration. As one who enjoys a celebration or three, I take some comfort from this passage as it is implicit in what is said that Our Lord enjoyed a feast, a drink and kept some fairly disreputable company. How else could he have attracted such ...http://godzdogz.op.org/2014/12/FleshAndWine.html
