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

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." In this story the master of the house is going on a fairly long journey and he wants to safeguard his money while he is away. 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. The woman had a situation that needed to be resolved. She wanted the judge to rule on this matter. However, the judge simply would not do it. 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

Reflection: Luke 17:26-37 THE DOME BLOG - November 14, 2014 Luke 17:26-37 – 32nd Week of Ordinary Time Today's Gospel is a continuation of Jesus' dialogue with the Pharisees. He is responding to their question: "when will the Kingdom of God come?" In his response Jesus uses some alarming images. He talks about fire and brimstone as well as people suddenly being taken from their everyday activities. His description is graphic, harsh and even frightening! Do you ever think about the "end time?" Do you wonder what the "end time" ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1726-37.html

Feast of Saint Lawrence O'Toole (14 November 2014) FR. VICTOR BROWN'S CATHOLIC DAILY MESSAGE - November 14, 2014 Today is a special day of rejoicing in our monastery here because it is the 60th anniversary of the monastery's formal inauguration. A group of pioneer Sisters came down from a monastery in Detroit to the piney woods of east Texas in 1945, and have been living the monastic life of our cloistered Dominican Nuns since then. That was the year I graduated from high school and began college. That was the year that World War II ended in Europe in May and in the Pacific in ...http://frbrown.wordpress.com/2014/11/14/feast-of-saint-lawrence-otoole-14-november-2014/

The Danger of Narrowcasting in the Church THE ALTERNATE PATH - November 13, 2014 http://thealternatepath.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-danger-of-narrowcasting-in-church.html

Reflection: Luke 17:11-19 THE DOME BLOG - November 12, 2014 Luke 17: 11-19 - 32nd Week of Ordinary Time The Gospel for today is the story of Jesus healing the 10 lepers. Stop for a moment and put yourself in the "shoes" of those lepers. They must have heard stories about Jesus and his power to heal. They stood at a distance and cried out to him. They begged him to take pity on them and to heal them. Their disease made them outcasts in the society of that time. They must have longed to be healed and to be able to return to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1711-19.html

"It Is Right to Call Them Heroes" GW CATHOLIC Q & A - November 12, 2014 This is a fitting reflection because I celebrated a funeral Mass for a woman yesterday (Veterans Day). I referred to it as a "day of heroes", and that she lived a heroic life. Donna Clarke was a hero for Jesus Christ! It Is Right to Call Them Heroes A Reflection for Veteran's Day By Tom Hoopes ATCHISON, KANSAS, November 11, 2014 ( Zenit.org ) - This Veteran's week, there is growing irritation on the part of some to the modern American custom of calling ...http://gwcatholicforum.blogspot.com/2014/11/it-is-right-to-call-them-heroes.html

Reflection: Luke 17:7-10 THE DOME BLOG - November 11, 2014 Luke 17: 7-10 - 32nd Week of Ordinary Time The Gospel for today is a bit unsettling. This parable speaks of the role, responsibilities and place of the servant in Jesus' time. It was the duty of the servant to serve the master and his household. Jesus was not demeaning the servant. He simply is explaining that the servant is doing what she/he was hired to do. Therefore, they do not have cause to complain. I assume that at times we also complain about our responsibilities ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-177-10.html
