Reflection: Luke 17:11-19 THE DOME BLOG - November 27, 2014 Thanksgiving Day – Luke 17:11-19 Today we have a welcome break from the somber readings that we hear as our current liturgical year comes to a close. Today we celebrate Thanksgiving Day, which has a completely different tone. As is appropriate on Thanksgiving Day, the Scripture readings reflect the goodness and generosity of our loving God!

Reflection: Luke 12:12-19 THE DOME BLOG - November 26, 2014 34th Week of Ordinary Time –Luke 12:12-19 In today's Gospel, Jesus continues his description of the "end times."

I'll Rest Tomorrow  - November 26, 2014 I promised myself that I was going to get some rest today. Didn't happen. I was over at the church early this morning to open up because the employee who usually opens took the day off to prepare for Thanksgiving. I had switched Masses with Fr. Ted so that he could do the 6:30 a.m. and then leave for the airport to go visit his parents. So, I opened up and then went into my office at 5:00 a.m. and started working on future Pastor's Pages for the bulletin. (I eventually ...http://mydailymusing.com/index.php?/archives/2057-Ill-Rest-Tomorrow.html

Reflection: Luke 21:5-11 THE DOME BLOG - November 25, 2014 34th Week of Ordinary Time – Luke 21:5-11 "The days will come". . . . Today Jesus tells his disciples that one day the temple will come down! Naturally his disciples want Jesus to predict the future: they hope Jesus to tell them exactly when the temple will be destroyed. They also want Jesus to give them a sign to look for so they will be prepared for this event. Jesus does not answer their questions directly. Rather, He tells his disciples to watch for signs such ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-215-11.html

Bringing Lent Home {Yes, I Know It's Almost Advent} a Book Review BLESSED BY GOD - November 25, 2014 ... do INSTEAD of what you are fasting from (one of my favorites says "Today fast from complaining. When tempted to complain, say, 'Jesus, I love you.'" That is a great reminder and I will be using everyday from now on. In addition there are suggestions for almsgiving and a closing prayer. Since, for us, it's easier to get together as a family (currently there are 13 of us living here since Brandon got married) in the evenings we do the next day's reflections the night before. ...http://ekblad9.blogspot.com/2014/11/bringing-lent-home-yes-i-know-its.html

The Time for Complacent Catholicism Is Over INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - November 24, 2014 ... fortitude and a call to Catholic courage When is the last time you saw someone display courage? We know it exists among public servants: soldiers, policemen, firefighters. We know it existed among the first responders at 9/11. We find it in people who sacrifice their lives for the well-being of those dearest to them, such as a father who will dive into water to save a drowning son or daughter. But how about in Catholicism? Does it demand courage to be a Catholic today? For ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/11/the-time-for-complacent-catholicism-is-over.html

Next Sunday we will begin a new Church year with the First Sunday of Advent. This week Jesus shifts his focus as He begins to prepare his disciples for what is to come. Today Jesus is in the temple.

"Those of us who are called to be pastors in the Church cannot stray from this example, if we do not want to become hirelings.

Reflection: Matthew 25:31-46 THE DOME BLOG - November 23, 2014 Matthew 25:31-46 – The Feast of Christ the King Today we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. This feast is one of the most solemn feasts of our Church year. This week is the final week of our current Church year. Next Sunday, the 1st Sunday of Advent, we will begin a new Church year. The Gospel reading for the feast of Christ the King may be a bit different than we anticipate. Given the name of this feast, we might assume that today's Gospel ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-matthew-2531-46.html

Reflection: Luke 20:27-40 THE DOME BLOG - November 22, 2014 Luke 20:27-40 – 33rd Week in Ordinary Time Today's Gospel may be a bit difficult to understand. The Sadducees are challenging Jesus. They give him a scenario about seven brothers. The oldest brother married a woman who gave him no children. This man died without any offspring. However, the man had 6 brothers. Each brother in their turn married this woman. And each brother in turn died, without having any children! What is Jesus saying to us in this Gospel? As we ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-2027-40.html

Reflection: Luke 19:45-48 THE DOME BLOG - November 21, 2014 Luke 19:45-48 – 33rd Week in Ordinary Time Today's Gospel is extremely short: only 4 verses. Yet it opens with a somewhat violent scene: Jesus has taken a whip and is driving the moneychangers out of the temple area! This is not a Jesus we "see" very often! On this day, Jesus was extremely angry that this hallowed, holy temple was being used for commerce, for the making of money. This sacred temple was being defiled! Jesus was so angry he took a whip and drove ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1945-48.html

Reflection: Luke 19:41-44 THE DOME BLOG - November 20, 2014 Luke 19:41-44 – 33rd Week in Ordinary Time The scene the Gospel opens with today is Jesus weeping over Jerusalem. Many of the people following him assumed that he was crying because he believed that Jerusalem would be destroyed. Apparently there had been dire predictions floating around in Jerusalem. (This sounds a bit like our fear as Y2K (2000) approached.) For weeks there were predictions that all computers would be shut down and everything would come to a ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1941-44.html

Reflection: Luke 19:11-28 THE DOME BLOG - November 19, 2014 Luke 19:11-28 – 33rd Week in Ordinary Time The parable Jesus tells today is about the Kingdom of God. Many of the people following Jesus were hoping that the Kingdom of God would come any day! Jesus knew this and he responds to their misconception by telling them another parable. This parable is the story of the nobleman who traveled a long distance in order to obtain a "kingship" for himself! After he was crowned king his plan was to return to his home. However, while ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1911-28.html

A Reflection on Perhaps the "Meanest" and Most Shocking Thing Jesus Ever Said ARCHDIOCESE OF WASHINGTON - November 18, 2014 The Gospel from today's Mass (Wed. of the 33rd Week – Luke 19:11-27) is known as the "Parable of the Ten Gold Coins." It is similar to Matthew's "Parable of the Talents" from Sunday, but with certain significant differences and an ending so shocking that, when I read it at daily Mass some years ago, a […]http://blog.adw.org/2014/11/a-reflection-on-perhaps-the-meanest-and-most-shocking-thing-jesus-ever-said/

Reflection: Luke 19:1-10 THE DOME BLOG - November 18, 2014 Luke 19:1-10 – 33rd Tuesday in Ordinary Time The Gospel today is the story of Zaccheus, the tax collector. Tax collectors (then and now) are not very popular with people — in Jesus' time and also today. And yet Zaccheus was determined to see "this Jesus" he had heard so much about. He had heard stories of his preaching as well as tales of his amazing power to heal. Zaccheus wanted to see and to listen to this man's preaching and decide for ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-191-10.html

Learning to Let Go on the Feast of Ascension MY JOURNEY - November 18, 2014 Jesus ascending to heaven. Painting by John Singleton Copley (source: Wikipedia) Have you ever had this fantasy, where Jesus still walks the Earth today – physically, in person? And have you ever imagined the ways you might take just to meet Him? Or, what would you do or say if you chanced upon Him on the street one day? Or maybe, have you ever wished that He did not go back to the Father at all? My answer is a big 'Yes' to all of the questions above. Why not? Even ...http://audrey-shark.blogspot.com/2014/05/learning-to-let-go-on-feast-of-ascension.html

Reflection: Luke 18:35-43 THE DOME BLOG - November 17, 2014 Luke 18:35-43 – 33rd Monday in Ordinary Time Today's Gospel is a very familiar one. It is the story of the blind man who is sitting on the roadside begging. This was the only way he was able to make enough money to live on. As he sat there begging, he heard a large crowd of people approaching. The man wondered what was going on. He asked some of the people who were walking by what was happening. They told the beggar that Jesus, the preacher and healer from Nazareth, ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1835-43.html

Reflection: Matthew 25:14-30 THE DOME BLOG - November 16, 2014 Matthew 25:14-30 – 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time Today's Gospel is the parable of the "talents."

He gave one servant five talents, the 2nd servant two talents and the 3rd one was given one talent. The master, however, had an unspoken expectation. The master expected these servants to increase the amount of his money while he was gone. The ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-matthew-2514-30.html

Reflection: Luke 28:1-8 THE DOME BLOG - November 15, 2014 Luke 28:1-8 Today Jesus tells his disciples another parable. This parable is about praying always. It is the story of a judge and a woman.

Every day the woman would return to the judge and make her request again. Over time the judge got weary of her presence and her persistent pleading. He finally decides that the only way for him to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-281-8.html
