Reflection: John 14:23-29 THE DOME BLOG - July 4, 2015 Independence Day – John 14:23-29 In today's Gospel, Jesus says to his disciple, Jude: "Whoever loves me will keep my word and my Father will love him and we will come and make our dwelling with him/her."

Reflection: John 20:24-29 THE DOME BLOG - July 3, 2015 Feast of St. Thomas – John 20:24-29 Today we celebrate the feast of St. Thomas. As we know, Thomas often is called St. Thomas the Doubter. Poor Thomas. He has been stuck with this nickname for centuries. Yet if we had been in Thomas' shoes on that day of resurrection, we also might have the title "the Doubter" after our names! As we know, Thomas was not with the Twelve when Jesus appeared to his disciples. When his friends and colleagues told him that Jesus had ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-john-2024-29.html

Feast Day: St. Thomas, Apostle HAPPY CATHOLIC* - July 3, 2015 I posted this in years past and find I cannot improve on the basics it presents for my reflection and celebration of this apostle who spoke so forthrightly and acknowledged Truth as soon as he found it. Thomas has been my companion throughout the last couple of years as I have devoted myself to a private project with him at the center. I have made lamentably little progress yet find that the time has not been completely misspent from a personal point of view. My life ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2015/07/feast-day-st-thomas-apostle.html

Reflection: Matthew 9:1-8 THE DOME BLOG - July 2, 2015 13th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 9:1-8 Today Jesus returns to his home town. When the townspeople heard that Jesus was home, they brought a paralytic to Jesus, carrying him on a stretcher. Clearly these people had faith in Jesus' power to heal this man. Jesus then said to the paralytic: "Child, have courage! Your sins are forgiven!" There were scribes amidst the townspeople. These scribes began murmuring among themselves about Jesus. They believed that Jesus ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-matthew-91-8.html

Reflection: Matthew 8:23-27 THE DOME BLOG - June 30, 2015 Thirteenth Tuesday in Ordinary Time: Matthew 8:23-27 Today's Gospel is a familiar story. It is the story of the storm at sea. As we know, Jesus' disciples became very frightened when a severe storm came up. Despite the fact that several of the disciples were experienced fishermen, the disciples were terrified. The storm was ferocious and waves were beginning to swamp their boat. And unbelievably, Jesus remained sound asleep in the boat while the storm raged all around ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-823-27.html

Reflection: Matthew 16:13-19 THE DOME BLOG - June 29, 2015 Saints Peter and Paul, Solemnity: Matthew 16:13-19 Today's feast celebrates Saints Peter and Paul. These two men had a profound impact on the early church. They both were leaders in the "infant" Church. Today is a "solemnity" in our church. Thus, we have three readings today as we do on Sundays. The 1st reading for today focuses on Peter while the 2nd reading is the passage from Paul. Paul did not have the privilege to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-1613-19.html

Church As Institution CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - June 29, 2015 Today is the Feast of Peter and Paul, two leaders of the early church. Meditation in the Daily Mass booklet for the feast centers on the reading of Matt 16: 13-19. Church can be understood in many different ways and thanks to Cardinal Dulles we have his six models: institution, communion, sacrament, herald, servant and community of disciples. Besides these six there are many more ways to see the Church but the model that begets the most opposition and loathing, and not ...http://catholicamericaneyesinkorea.blogspot.com/2015/06/church-as-institution.html

Reflection: Mark 5:21-43 THE DOME BLOG - June 28, 2015 Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Mark 5:21-43 Today's Gospel includes two accounts of Jesus' healing powers. The first story tells of a synagogue official who was desperate. His daughter was seriously ill and close to death. The official begs Jesus to come and heal her. Jesus did not hesitate. Immediately, Jesus went with the official to his house. However, in the crowd around Jesus, there was another person who also longed to be healed. It was a woman who for many years ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-mark-521-43.html

Reflection: Matthew 8:5-17 THE DOME BLOG - June 27, 2015 12th Saturday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 8:5-17 Today as Jesus is approaching Capernaum, a centurion soldier approached him. He told Jesus that one of his servants was paralyzed and he was suffering terribly. As soon as Jesus heard this news, he told the centurion to come with him to his home and cure the man. However, the centurion did not agree to this. The man believed that he was not worthy to have Jesus come to his home. The man then told Jesus that he ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-85-17.html

The God of Surprises REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - June 26, 2015 My reflection today is based on the desire of Pope Francis that we may cultivate hopefulness, let God surprise us, and live in joy. I think this year has taught me much about the way God really does surprise me. Each day is full of surprises, if we are attentive to realize how God acts in our lives. I woke up aware of the presence of my own mother and father. That is something that happened several times when I was ill and in isolation, but this is the ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-god-of-surprises.html

Reflection: Matthew 8:1-4 THE DOME BLOG - June 26, 2015 12th Friday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 8:1-4 In today's Gospel, Jesus comes down from the mountain. As always, a great crowd followed him. A leper approached Jesus. He paid Jesus homage and then said: "Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean!" Apparently, the leper had heard of the miracles and cures that Jesus had done. Without any hesitation, Jesus responded to the leper's request. He reached out his hand and gently touched the man and said: "I will do as you ask. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-81-4.html

Holiness REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - June 25, 2015 The other morning I was inspired to write about holiness. I really thought that the Holy Spirit inspired the blog that I wanted to schedule for today. Maybe I liked it too much as it disappeared. I do not know where it went and felt frustrated. Now, I am sure that the lesson to learn here is that feeling frustrated can be part of life and we need to learn how to turn frustration into grace. I can just be grateful that I felt the blog wrote itself under the Holy ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2015/06/holiness.html

Being Happy for Others Can Be Hard to Do SPIRITUAL WOMAN - June 25, 2015 This is an excerpt from the reflection for today in Living Faith : That I may . . . rejoice in the joy of your people . . . Psalm 106:5 Sometimes it's hard to be happy for another person. If we have longed for something for ourselves but fail to receive it, our heart can struggle with feeling envy or resentment when we find that in another person's life. . . It takes a generous heart to let joy for someone else enter in when that joy has been denied to ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/SPBgN/~3/gF3QkbunI-8/being-happy-for-others-can-be-hard-to-do.html

Reflection: Matthew 7:21-29 THE DOME BLOG - June 25, 2015 12th Thursday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 7:21-29 Today Jesus tells us that it is not enough to ask to enter the kingdom of heaven. We need to be women and men who truly do the will of His Father. This is the single criterion we will be judged on. If we wish to end up in heaven, then we need to "do the will of His Father." Sound simple? However, how do we discern what "the Father's will" is? I don't think we will find the answer on the internet, in a book or perhaps ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-721-29.html

Celebrating Memories REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - June 25, 2015 ... people do need to heal memories, but what about celebrating our memories? Today I am celebrating my memories. Many are of Chile and I have revived them because two of our Religious have just returned from a formation meeting there. It is really one of the most beautiful countries in the world and the people are wonderful. I guess my memories of colorful festivals and dancing, singing, and just being joyful are to be celebrated today and thanked for again. I ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2015/06/celebrating-memories.html

Reflection: Luke 1:57-66,80 THE DOME BLOG - June 24, 2015 The Nativity of John the Baptist – Luke 1:57-66, 80 Today we celebrate the solemn feast of the Nativity of John the Baptist. Naturally the Gospel reading is the story of John's birth and naming. Elizabeth had longed for a child for many years. However, it was not to be. Now at an older age, Elizabeth and Zechariah finally received a great gift from God: the gift of their son, John. After John was born, the relatives of Elizabeth and Zechariah gathered to celebrate ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-luke-157-6680.html

Reflection: Matthew 7:6, 12-14 THE DOME BLOG - June 23, 2015 12th Tuesday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 7:6, 12-14 In today's Gospel, Jesus uses an image that most of us may never have used in our lives. Jesus tells his disciples, "Do not give to dogs what is holy. And do not throw your pearls before swine." Jesus cautions his disciples that "the dogs and swine" may turn on you and perhaps they even may tear you to pieces. Jesus then moves into a more positive message. He instructs his disciples to treat others as they want others ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-76-12-14.html

"The Road That Leads to Life" CHILDREN'S ROSARY - June 23, 2015 ... today. In reflection I began to think of of the mothers I have seen in crowded places with their children. I have seen mom's tie something around their children with a string to make sure they do not stray or get lost. These type of cords are now sold and seem to be most frequently used for very little children who can walk but would not know their way without their mother or father. I then began to think of Our Blessed Mother. She is the most loving of ...http://childrensrosary.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-road-that-leads-to-life.html

Reflection: Matthew 7:1-5 THE DOME BLOG - June 22, 2015 12th Monday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 7:1-5 Jesus' challenge for us today is not an easy one. He tells his disciples (and us) to "Stop judging." Now that is a difficult challenge for most of us. "Judgment" comes from deep within us. Someone may do or say something that violates what we believe or hold sacred. Or it may be something as simple as someone not putting an item back where it belongs. Or someone may say something to us that cuts us to the core. We all ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-71-5.html
