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! The Gospel chosen for Thanksgiving Day is the story of the 10 lepers. We know this story ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1711-19_27.html

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." He tells the crowd that they will be taken to the synagogue officials and then be thrown into prison. Jesus also tells his listeners that they should not defend themselves in regard to any charges. However, Jesus does promise to give them the wisdom and courage they will need when they have to respond in these circumstances. Jesus does not ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1212-19.html

The Mercy of Father Brown TEN THOUSAND PLACES - November 26, 2014 ... rate in a sense to be this person. There is no us, no them, no fingers to point, no blame to lay. Just a bunch of sinners all slouching along together, trying to find our way to the New Jerusalem and to the merciful Jesus who bears us there. This identification is what Jesus Himself did, even though He was in fact sinless. "For our sake, God made the sinless one into sin, and so made us the goodness of God." I can't find the exact chapter and verse, but St. Paul puts it here as strongly as ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-mercy-of-father-brown_75.html

The Pope Canonises Six New Blesseds: The Kingdom of God Is Built on Tenderness and Proximity VIS NEWS - HOLY SEE PRESS OFFICE - November 24, 2014 ... attitude of the Shepherd towards His flock, using the verbs such as to seek, to keep watch, to round up, to lead to pasture, to bring to rest; to seek the lost sheep, to tend to the wounded, to heal the sick, to care for and to graze. "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. In this respect, the People of God have an unerring sense for recognising good shepherds and distinguishing them from hirelings". After ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-pope-canonises-six-new-blesseds.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 ...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 ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-2027-40.html

The Model of Leadership Offered by Jesus: "More Like the Gardener Than the Owner of the Garden" THE WILD REED - November 22, 2014 . I've spent a good part of today shifting and sorting through papers and documents dating back to the mid-1990s. In the process I discovered a piece I wrote for the Dignity Twin Cities newsletter in 1997. It was written in response to then- Archbishop Harry Flynn 's remark that "the pastor is the head honcho." It's interesting to read the response I penned in light of recent revelations that detail Flynn's – along with his predecessor 's and successor 's ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-model-of-leadership-offered-by.html

A Church Musician's Musings A WING AND A PRAYER - November 22, 2014 Today is the feast of St. Cecilia, Virgin and Martyr. She is the patron saint of musicians; thus, as I claim to be a church musician, she has an important role in my spiritual life. (And if anyone needs her intercession in this matter, I sure do.) At the end of 1992 I wrote a brief position paper as part of a contest involving music in one's life. At that time, I was just starting my seventh year "making a joyful noise unto the Lord", albeit primarily as a volunteer in my ...http://awingandaprayer.blogspot.com/2014/11/a-church-musicians-musings.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 ...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 ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1941-44.html

Ballasts in Peter's Storm–tossed Bark VULTUS CHRISTI - November 20, 2014 Maria Fortunata Viti: A Nearly–Forgotten Benedictine Blessed Today is the feast of a now nearly–forgotten Benedictine Blessed: Maria Fortunata Viti. Back in October 1967, at the moment of her beatification by the enigmatic Blessed Paul VI, Maria Fortunata Viti (1827–1922) had a fleeting moment of popularity. Somehow, many years ago, I came into possession of a first–classic relic of the then new beata . Blessed Montini's Secret Strategy? Blessed ...http://vultus.stblogs.org/index.php/2014/11/ballasts-in-the-depths-of-peters-storm-tossed-bark/

Who Are the Real "Promethean Neo-Pelagians" Today? MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - November 20, 2014 ... reviews the historical heresy known as "Pelagianism." The balance of the article is devoted to noting contemporary instantiations of "Pelagianism" that come from some perhaps unexpected quarters: Recently, there's been a lot of fingerpointing at traditional Catholics. Some of it is the same old, same old (insert stale Pharisees joke here). Some of it, however, is very new and very confusing. Some Catholics have recently been identified -- more than once -- as "Pelagians." This will undoubtedly ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2014/11/who-are-real-promethean-neo-pelagians.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 ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-191-10.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 ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1835-43.html

Psalm 1: The Righteous Man JOE CATHOLIC - November 17, 2014 ... would plant the seed that would eventually grow into the Joe Catholic lay apostolate. Today's Psalm reading is taken from Psalm 1. We normally only include the Navarre Bible commentary for the Gospel reading, but I thought I would include the Psalm because we referenced it at the Conference and this past weekend at our regular Workshop. Psalm 1:1–4, 6 1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/11/psalm-1-righteous-man.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 ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-matthew-2514-30.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 ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1726-37.html

Reflection: Luke 17:20-25 THE DOME BLOG - November 13, 2014 Luke 17: 20-25 - 32nd Week of Ordinary Time This Gospel begins with the Pharisees asking Jesus when the kingdom of God will come. Jesus tells them that the kingdom of God is not something you are able to "see." Nor will anyone announce to you: "Here is the kingdom of God." Jesus tells the Pharisees that the "kingdom of God is among you." Jesus also tells us "the kingdom of God is among us." Do we believe what Jesus is saying? Do we truly believe that the kingdom of God is ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/11/reflection-luke-1720-25.html
