LEARNING TO BE QUICK TO LISTEN - July 25, 2016 ... primary "work tool in our hands" and that to insist on something with God is not meant to "convince him, but rather to strengthen our faith and our patience, that is, our capacity to fight beside God for the things that are truly important and necessary." "In prayer we are a pair: God and me, fighting together for what is important. Among these, there is one, the great important thing, which Jesus tells us today in the Gospel, but which we hardly ever consider, and it is the ...http://listenquickly.blogspot.com/2016/07/with-his-visit-to-world-youth-day-only.html

Reflection for the 17th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - July 24, 2016 Monday – Earthen Vessels In today's first reading, St. Paul tells us that we hold great treasures in earthen vessels. The indwelling presence of God Himself resides in us when we are in a state of grace. We welcome Him into our weak mortal bodies and greet Him with love. Further, He gives Himself to us in another way whenever we receive Holy Communion. The God of the universe becomes our nourishment. He humbles Himself and enters into us that we may belong to Him more ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-for-17th-week-in-ordinary.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:24-30 THE DOME BLOG - July 23, 2016 Saturday of the 16th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:24-30 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus telling His disciples another parable. The parable begins with the words: "The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man who sowed 'good seed' in his field." However, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds in the wheat field. The enemy left deeply satisfied because he had "bested" his enemy. As the crop began to grow, the weeds also grew. The servants of ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1324-30.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:1-9 THE DOME BLOG - July 20, 2016 Wednesday of the 16th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:1-9 Today Jesus and the disciples are on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus was teaching the people in the form of a parable. He told his listeners the Parable of the Wheat and the Weeds. This is a very familiar parable to us. However, this parable was new to His listeners. They asked Jesus: "Why do you use stories when you teach the people"? Now pause a moment and think back to your childhood. What was ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-131-9.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:46-50 THE DOME BLOG - July 19, 2016 Tuesday of the 16th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 12:46-50 Today's Gospel may be difficult for us to understand. While Jesus was preaching, his mother and brothers approached the disciples. They told them that they wanted to talk with Jesus. The disciples then went to Jesus and told him that his family had come and they wanted to speak with him. Jesus must have surprised the disciples with his response. He immediately responded: "Who is my mother? Who are my ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1246-50.html

Forgiven - A Theme for the Year of Mercy CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - July 19, 2016 ... of the Year of Mercy, as the commentary provided at the link above suggests. How difficult was it for the young girl to return to her home with the baby? And might our families today make such a return so difficult that the daughter might instead seek an abortion? Are our families places of unqualified welcome to their members? How can the shame of the girl who hides her face be a style of shame from which growth occurs rather than being the result of a stigmatisation by ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2016/07/forgiven-theme-for-year-of-mercy.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:38-42 THE DOME BLOG - July 18, 2016 Monday of the 16th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 12:38-42 Today the Pharisees and scribes come to Jesus and say: "We want to see a sign from you!" However, Jesus refuses to give them a sign. He tells them that it is "an evil and unfaithful generation" that needs a "sign" in order to believe. He then says: "No sign except the sign of Jonah will be given!" How often do we ask Jesus for a sign of His love and presence? Do we believe and trust in Jesus only when we ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1238-42.html

Monday Musings - It's Not About Putting the Genie Back in the Bottle! HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - July 18, 2016 ... locked behind the tabernacle doors. God deserves nothing less today. (Photo©Michael Seagriff) Back in that day, everyone knew they were there in the Presence of God to adore and worship Him, not to visit with their neighbor. Somehow, they were able to enter, remain and exit the Church in reverent silence and postpone their socialization and greetings until they were out on the sidewalk. God deserves nothing less today. These same individuals knew enough ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2016/07/monday-musings-its-not-about-putting.html

Reflection: Luke 10:38-42 THE DOME BLOG - July 17, 2016 The 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Luke 10:38-42 Today we have the familiar story of Martha and Mary. As we know, Martha was a workaholic and Mary was a contemplative. When Jesus arrived in the town where Mary and Martha lived, He immediately went to their home. Martha welcomed him and then she immediately went to the kitchen to prepare a delicious meal for him. Mary, however, sat down at Jesus' feet. She talked with him and listened attentively to him. As time went ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-luke-1038-42.html

SEND ME LORD - July 17, 2016 ... revealed, not to harm anyone, to live in peace with my neighbor, not to lend with interest. If I do these things You promise me peace and that nothing will rob me it for it is Your gift to me. Colossians 1:24-28 My soul's beloved, what St. Paul is saying is that through our sufferings we can identify just as You did when You took upon Yourself the sin and suffering of the world. Because we live in a fallen world, although redeemed by You, there is still terrible suffering and injustice meted ...http://whomshallisend.blogspot.com/2016/07/genesis-181-10a-psalm-152-5-colossians.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:14-21 THE DOME BLOG - July 16, 2016 Saturday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 12:14-21 Today the Pharisees come together and begin to plot against Jesus. They were so threatened by Jesus and his influence with the people that they decided that He needed to be put to death. When Jesus realized that he was in danger, He withdrew to a secluded place. However, a large number of people followed Him. Despite His desire to be alone, He healed the all of the sick. Jesus told the people not to make ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1214-21.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:1-8 THE DOME BLOG - July 15, 2016 Friday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 12:1-8 In today's Gospel, Jesus and his disciples were walking through a field of grain. It was the Sabbath. The disciples were hungry and, without thinking, they began to pick some of the grain and then eat it. There were several Pharisees who saw the disciples do this. They immediately approached Jesus and told him that his disciples' action was unlawful since it was the Sabbath. No work was to be done on the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-121-8.html

Reflection: Matthew 11:28-30 THE DOME BLOG - July 14, 2016 Thursday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 11:28-30 Today's Gospel is one of my favorite Scripture passages. In this reading Jesus invites all who are weary and burdened to come to Him. He promises us that if we come to Him, He will give us rest, and the rest He gives will renew and restore us. What in your life wearies you? What wears you down or exhausts you? From what (and whom) do you need "rest?" It might be worry about your loved ones, health, or ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1128-30.html

Reflection: Matthew 11:25-27 THE DOME BLOG - July 13, 2016 Wednesday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 11: 25-27 Today we eavesdrop on Jesus as He converses with His Father. Jesus is praising the goodness and graciousness of God for revealing to the childlike what is hidden to the learned. How would you describe people who are child-like (in the best sense of the word)? What are some of the characteristics these individuals possess? How do they approach life? Are they enjoyable to be around? In our world, we ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1125-27.html

Reflection: Matthew 11:20-24 THE DOME BLOG - July 12, 2016 Tuesday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 11:20-24 Today's Gospel is a difficult one to read. Jesus' instruction to his disciples is pretty disturbing. He denounces the cities of Chorazin and Bethsaida for refusing to believe in Him and change their ways despite the wonders they had seen Him work. Jesus tells his disciples that he has not come to bring peace; rather, he has come to bring the sword. He also says that he has come to set a man against his father, ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1120-24.html

Sunday Sermon: On Nonviolence and Healing Divisions DEACON DAN WRIGHT - July 10, 2016 In many ways the parable of the Good Samaritan makes for a fitting reflection for us today because the subject matter that it deals with directly is how we should respond to violence. It is no secret to any of...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/deacondanwright/deacon_dan_wright/~3/DRqLtJnGEjw/sunday-sermon-on-nonviolence-and-healing-divisions.html
