Reflection: Matthew: 23:13-26 THE DOME BLOG - August 26, 2014 Tuesday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew: 23:13-26 The Gospel for today is the "woe to you" Gospel. In this reading, Jesus is berating the Scribes and Pharisees for being hypocrites! Jesus doesn't get angry very often but when he does, he has good cause and his anger is justified. Jesus is telling the Pharisees to "get their own houses" in order rather than "judging" what other people are doing. I assume that we also don't like it when other people seem to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-2313-26.html

The Substance of Hope TEN THOUSAND PLACES - August 26, 2014 ... the New Testament and in early Christianity; yet it has always been clear that we are referring not only to the past: the entire reflection concerns living and dying in general, and therefore it also concerns us here and now. So now we must ask explicitly: is the Christian faith also for us today a life-changing and life-sustaining hope? Is it "performative" for us—is it a message which shapes our life in a new way, or is it just "information" which, in ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-substance-of-hope.html

Reflection on Pope's Visit to Korea CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - August 26, 2014 ... love, justice and peace. It may be that Korean society was hoping the pope would help solve some of their problems, but he asked us to take care of the poor, and the marginalized. He did not come to Korea to solve problems but to commiserate and advise. He applauded those who were doing something to benefit society and left Korea with suggestions that will help us grow to a more mature Catholicism with a blueprint for the ...http://catholicamericaneyesinkorea.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-on-popes-visit-to-korea.html

Reflection: Matthew 23:13-22 THE DOME BLOG - August 25, 2014 Monday of 21st Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 23:13-22 Today's Gospel is really a "downer!" It is the passage where Jesus is berating the scribes and the Pharisees. He is accusing them of being hypocrites. They act holy but often take advantage of those who have so much less than they do! Their actions do not always exemplify what they preach. I would guess that at times, all of us have a "Pharisee" within us! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we always "practiced what ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-2313-22.html

A Woman of Few Words THAT THE BONES YOU HAVE CRUSHED MAY THRILL - August 25, 2014 ... reflection, however, it is possible that the Gospel writers, when dealing with the topic of Our Lady, have deliberately, or have been inspired deliberately, to write very little indeed on Our Lady. The little that is written of her then becomes increasingly more important. In this sense, less is more, because it encourages us to look at what is written, that we may draw out of little, the sea of information that is there, the star of which is Our Lady. With this in mind, then, ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2014/08/a-woman-of-few-words.html

Chosen: Help Me Understand the Gospel of Matthew ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - August 25, 2014 I Choose You. Every Monday, I post a reflection on the previous day's Gospel reading often seeing ways those readings speak directly to those suffering from marital difficulties, abandonment, divorce, abuse, or similar tragedies. I believe God has given me a gift in the way I see things through my experiences and in His power to overcome them. But today, I struggle with the Gospel of Matthew. The Gospel of Matthew Chapter 16 13-20 is something I've ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/08/chosen-help-me-understand-gospel-of.html

Reflection: Matthew 16:13-20 THE DOME BLOG - August 24, 2014 ... Jesus is asking us today! It can be easy to give a flippant answer or to parrot back what we learned in Religious Education years ago. However, this is a question we may need to ask ourselves once again! Who is Jesus for me now at this time in my life? Is he a friend? A stranger? Our ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-1613-20.html

Reflection on Today's Readings, Sunday, August 24, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - August 24, 2014 Readings for Today A few verses that really stood out for me today: The gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. (the Church) "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be glory forever. I will give thanks to your name, because of your kindness and your truth: When I called, you answered me; you built up ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/reflection-on-todays-readings-sunday-august-24-2014/

Reflection: Matthew 23:1-12 THE DOME BLOG - August 23, 2014 Matthew 23:1-12 In today's Gospel reading, Jesus is warning the crowd and his disciples to choose their mentors wisely. He warns them not to blindly follow those who have authority. We need to look at their actions and choices. Are they "practicing what they preach?" For many of us, it is easy to say what needs to be done. However, it is not easy to practice it day after day! Perhaps we need to periodically ask ourselves: "Are we practicing what we preach?" It is very easy ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-231-12.html

Peter and the Papacy: A Call to Sacrificial Service Καθολικός διάκονος - August 23, 2014 Our readings today, especially our readings from the Old Testament and from St Matthew's Gospel, give us insight into the nature of the papacy, as originally established by Jesus Christ. Peter is to be a servant of the master like Eliakim, not like Shebna. As such, he is to be a father to the household of faith. As John Martens points out in his excellent reflection on these readings, "Rock-Solid Authority," "We know a fair bit about this time, as the ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/08/peter-and-papacy-call-to-sacrificial.html

Reflection: The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Matthew 22:34-40 THE DOME BLOG - August 22, 2014 The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Matthew 22:34-40 Today we commemorate the Queenship of Mary. Even though we celebrate this as a "feast," neither of today's readings is about Mary. The readings are from the regular cycle of readings. The first reading is from the Book of Ezekiel. It is the story of the plain that was covered with dry bones. What a powerful image that is! Can you remember a time in your life when this image would have spoken ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-queenship-of-blessed-virgin.html

Guest Homily for the Memorial of the Queenship of Mary CATHOLIC FAITH AND REFLECTIONS - August 22, 2014 Today is the Memorial of the Queenship of Mary. It is also the 5th Anniversary of my Ordination. I, along with eleven other men were ordained deacons at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Winona Minnesota on this day in 2009. To commemorate both of these, I am posting for you a guest homily for today. The homilist is Deacon Joseph Weigel, my classmate and good friend. To him and all in the class of '09, I extend my diaconal blessing. August 22, 2014 ...http://bob.yerhot.org/2014/08/guest-homily-for-the-memorial-of-the-queenship-of-mary/

Twentieth Saturday in Ordinary Time LIVING SCRIPTURE - August 22, 2014 Ezekiel 43:1-7ab Psalm 85:9ab+10, 11-12, 13-14 Matthew 23:1-12 When I first read today's readings I recalled the prior dialogue in Chapter 7, where Jesus admonished us to not judge, and to not be concerned about the splinter in our brother's eye when we had a wooden beam in our own. Today's teaching on hypocrisy is in the same vein – don't fall into the trap of telling others what to do and then not doing it yourself. Don't be so enamored with ...http://livingscripture.wordpress.com/2014/08/23/twentieth-saturday-in-ordinary-time/

What Does the Lord Ask of You? CREO EN DIOS! - August 21, 2014 ... today's gathering: "You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the Lord requires of you: To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God." It seemed to me a perfect passage with which to begin the year. In the context of this new environment, I thought it would be worthwhile to encourage the students to spend some time reflecting on how they will actualize what God asks of them; to think about what it means for them as law students (and future ...http://susanjoan.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/what-does-the-lord-ask-of-you/

Flying Quietly QUANTUM THEOLOGY - August 21, 2014 Burbank Airport This reflection appeared at CatholicPhilly.com on 18 August 2014. …if you receive my words and treasure my commands Turning your ear to wisdom, inclining your heart to understanding; If you seek her like silver, and like hidden treasures search her out, Then will you understand the fear of the Lord; the knowledge of God you will find; Then you will understand what is right and just, what is fair, every good path; For wisdom will enter your heart, ...http://quantumtheology.blogspot.com/2014/08/flying-quietly.html

Catholic Digital Media Conference 2014 GROW THE ROSES - August 21, 2014 ... Here are a few highlights and reflections from me about the experience: Room for Independence and Reflection This week was my first week off on my own (ok, I only had a 9 month old in tow, and he was babysat for part of it) since my motherhood began. It also happened to be located in a significant place for me, Sydney, Australia. A place that God led me to when I was 20 to work at World Youth Day 2008. Which was a massive experience for me that shaped me into the person I am ...http://growtheroses.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/catholic-digital-media-conference-2014/

Reflection: Matthew 20:1-16 THE DOME BLOG - August 20, 2014 Matthew 20:1-16 Today's Gospel is the story of the landowner who went out at various times of the day to hire laborers to work in his vineyard. He went out not just once, but five times: dawn, 9:00 a.m., noon, 3:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m.. He must have had many fields of grapes to be picked! Perhaps this story is an allegory about how God is with us! If the landowner is a "God" figure, then how frequently does God come looking for us---for you and for me? How many times does ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-201-16.html

Reflection: Matthew 19:16-22 THE DOME BLOG - August 18, 2014 Matthew 19:16-22 (20th Week in Ordinary Time) The Gospel reading for today is the story of the young man who came to Jesus and asked him what he needed to do to "gain eternal life." If we had the chance to see Jesus face-to-face, we, too, might ask him this question! Have we been "good enough" to get into heaven? Is there something else I should be doing? Am I doing the right things? What does it mean to be "good?" I believe the "good" we are to do is not to do ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-1916-22.html

Timid and Turpid CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - August 18, 2014 Fr Myron Pereira at UCA News offers a devastating commentary on bishops , starting with a tidbit of history that invites some reflection: For a long time, for centuries in fact, the Catholic Church was one of the few institutions where a young man, with no family connections and little money, could rise to eminence on the basis of intelligence, shrewdness and ambition alone. Today a man has other options out of whatever remnants of a caste system are to ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/08/18/timid-and-turpid/
