"It's Worth Revisiting" Wednesday - This Is No Time to Water Down the Truths and Precepts of Jesus Christ HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - July 29, 2015 ... extraordinary (and often absurd) extremes not to offend anyone with our words - verbal or written. "Better not to offend someone's feelings," the monitors of political correctness urge, "than to share the full and unabridged Truth." In their upside down world, there is no Absolute or Moral Truth and no concern for the salvation of souls. The pressure to conform to this cultural demand is ever increasing. The number of individuals who have surrendered to this evil (even within our Church) ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2015/07/its-worth-revisiting-wednesday-this-is.html

Reflection: John 11:19-27 THE DOME BLOG - July 29, 2015 17th Wednesday in Ordinary Time: Memorial of St. Martha – John 11:19-27 Today's Gospel reading focuses on the death of Lazarus, and its impact on his sisters, Martha and Mary, and also Jesus. Lazarus, Martha and Mary were a "second family" to Jesus. Jesus spent time with them, he laughed with them, he relaxed with them and he loved each of them. Thus, when Lazarus died, Martha, Mary and Jesus all were devastated. Jesus was not present when Lazarus died. When he ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-john-1119-27.html

And Jesus Wept. THE WANDERING FRIAR - July 28, 2015 "Dominus Flevit" "The Lord Wept--outside of Jerusalem I am reading Jesus, a wonderful book by James Martin, SJ. It presents a wonderful and prayerful reflection on Jesus based on the author's experience of making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I am reading it slowly, not because it is difficult to understand, but because so many of his reflections lead me into prayer and meditation. When I finish reading I may review it on this blog, for now I am picking up on one part of ...http://frjohnsblog.blogspot.com/2015/07/and-jesus-wept_28.html

Monday Musings - Holding on to Anything? HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - July 27, 2015 (Image source: Wikimedia Commons ) [Yesterday's Gospel (John 6:1-15) prompted me to re-read and re-post a brief reflection I had previously shared on a similar passage in Matthew (14:13-21)} The little that we have – be it in material goods, time or talents – is sufficient for God's work if, when He asks, we would just give whatever that is to Him. Take notice in today's Gospel what He did with five loaves of bread and two fish! On the surface, ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2015/07/monday-musings-holding-on-to-anything.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:31-35 THE DOME BLOG - July 27, 2015 17th Monday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:31-35 Today Jesus gives us the parable of the mustard seed. He tells his disciples (and us) that the Kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed. If you are a gardener, you know how tiny the mustard seeds are. Yet, as this tiny seed grows it matures into one of the largest of all plants! This plant not only provides mustard, it typically becomes the home for many species of birds. Jesus then tells the disciples another parable. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-matthew-1331-35.html

Of Plenty, Population and Trust: A Further Reflection on the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes COMMUNITY IN MISSION - July 26, 2015 ... of the loaves and fishes and God's promise to care for His people is right before our very eyes. And while there is hunger in the world today, it is not due to God , but to human struggles and human sinfulness. More on the question of hunger in a moment. But first, let's ponder the work of God to feed us and see how He has multiplied our loaves and fishes. In the Book of Genesis, God blessed Adam and Eve and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and ...http://blog.adw.org/2015/07/a-reflection-on-the-multiplication-of-the-loaves-and-fishes/

Being Catholic in an Age of Challenge BIG C CATHOLICS - July 24, 2015 I want to draw your attention to the recent pastoral letter by Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington D. C., Being Catholic Today: Catholic Identity in an Age of Challenge. There is a strong animus today against what we believe and our right to follow our faith convictions as Catholics. Cardinal Wuerl's letter is an excellent reflection on our freedom to be followers of Christ and some of thehttp://www.bigccatholics.com/2015/07/being-catholic-in-age-of-challenge.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:18-23 THE DOME BLOG - July 24, 2015 16th Wednesday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:18-23 Today we hear the familiar parable of "the sower and the seed." Jesus tells his disciples that the "seed sown on the path" is anyone who hears the Word of the Kingdom. However, if they do not understand this "Word," the "Evil One" comes and steals the seed from the person's heart! Jesus then speaks about the "seed sown in rocky ground." This is a person who joyfully takes "the word to heart." However, after some time ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-matthew-1318-23.html

July 23 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - July 23, 2015 God-speech can come in many varieties. In our readings today we see three such methods of communication. The first being a tremendous show up light, heat, sound and power (such as Cecil B. Demil could portray) as God arranges to make his presence known to the people of Israel for the first time, and to engage Moses in direct conversation. The scenario is unmistakable – it is magnificent. In the gospel passage Jesus – the very words of God made flesh – ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/07/july-23-homily-for-today.html

She believed ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-john-201-211-18.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:46-50 THE DOME BLOG - July 21, 2015 16th Tuesday in Ordinary Time - Matthew 12:46-50 Today's Gospel may be a difficult reading for us to understand. While Jesus was preaching, his mother and his brothers approached him. They told some of his disciples that they wanted to talk with Jesus. The disciples 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 said: "Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?" ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-matthew-1246-50.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:38-42 THE DOME BLOG - July 20, 2015 16th Monday 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 to them: "No sign except the sign of Jonah will be given!" How often do you (or I) ask for a sign from Jesus? Do we believe and trust in Jesus only when we receive a sign? How do we ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-matthew-1238-42.html

However, the quiet and rest they had hoped for was not to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/07/reflection-mark-630-34.html

I Desire Mercy, Not Sacrifice GOOGLING GOD - July 17, 2015 Today's Gospel from Matthew hits many of us right between the eyes when we hear the following words: "I desire mercy, not sacrifice." How often do I withhold mercy in my own life and how do I feel when it is withheld from me. I'm not much of a grudge-holder actually, but there are a few that I carry around in my sack from time to time and too often that sack weighs me down and prevents me from doing all that I can do. How much more can I accomplish, if I lay down my ...http://googlinggod.com/2015/07/17/i-desire-mercy-not-sacrifice/
