Reflection: Luke 16:19-31 THE DOME BLOG - March 5, 2015 Thursday of the Second Week of Lent – Luke 16:19-31 Today's Gospel is the story of Lazarus and the rich man. This is another story we are very familiar with. Lazarus is a poor man whose body was covered with sores. Lazarus begged right outside the door of a rich man's house. The rich man always dressed in fine clothing and ate only the finest food. And even though Lazarus was present outside the rich man's house, day in and day out, the rich man ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/03/reflection-luke-1619-31.html

Reflection: Matthew 20:17-28 THE DOME BLOG - March 4, 2015 Wednesday of the Second Week of Lent – Matthew 20:17-28 Today's Gospel reading is pretty sobering. Jesus and the disciples are going up to Jerusalem and Jesus wants to prepare them for what lies ahead for him as well as for them. He warns his disciples that he will be handed over to the scribes and chief priests. Not only that, but Jesus also tells them that he will be condemned to death, mocked, scourged and crucified! Can you imagine the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/03/reflection-matthew-2017-28.html

The Universal Destination of Goods and the Preferential Option for the Poor VIVIFICAT! - March 2, 2015 Brethren: Peace be with you. Today I want to share with you this quote from the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church , and offer it for your Lenten reflection, specially the highlighted parts: The universal destination of goods and the preferential option for the poor 182. The principle of the universal destination of goods requires that the poor, the marginalized and in all cases those whose living conditions interfere with their proper ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/cybercatholics/jrWV/~3/XC-HsiFAOMI/the-universal-destination-of-goods-and.html

Reflection: Mark 9:2-10 THE DOME BLOG - March 1, 2015 Second Sunday of Lent - Mark 9:2-10 This Gospel reading is the account of Jesus' transfiguration. It is quite a remarkable scene. It begins as Jesus takes James, John and Peter up a mountain. Did these men wonder why Jesus was only taking the 3 of them up the mountain? Did they wonder why Jesus chose them? When they arrived on the mountain, they were gifted with a wondrous experience: Jesus was transfigured before them! His clothing was changed. His garments became a ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/03/reflection-mark-92-10.html

Reflection: Matthew 5:43-48 THE DOME BLOG - February 28, 2015 First Week of Lent – Matthew 5:43-48 Jesus uses extremely strong language in today's Gospel. He is talking with his disciples and he hits them right where they live. He instructs his disciples that they are to love their enemies. Jesus is being completely countercultural. The culture that Jesus lived in was extremely violent. They nailed criminals to the cross and imposed many other cruel punishments. True, in our culture we also punish criminals with ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-matthew-543-48.html

Reflection: Matthew 5:20-26 THE DOME BLOG - February 27, 2015 First Week of Lent – Matthew 5:20-26 In today's Gospel Jesus is talking about holding onto grudges, anger, hurt and perhaps even hate. I assume that most of us do not hate someone. However, I am sure that all of us have dealt with grudges, anger, hurt and jealousy at various times in our lives. These are emotions that we all have. They are "part and parcel" of being human. Do we always like these emotions? Most likely not! Yet, these emotions that we ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-matthew-520-26.html

Reflection: Luke 11:29-32 THE DOME BLOG - February 25, 2015 First Week of Lent – Luke 11:29-32 The opening sentence of today's Gospel may grab your attention. Jesus is telling the crowd that the current generation is an evil generation. He goes on to tell them what will happen in the future — and the forecast is not favorable! In fact, I assume Jesus' words may have been frightening and forbidding to His listeners! Or is Jesus simply hoping to get the crowd's attention? Is He hoping that they will ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-luke-1129-32.html

Reflection: Matthew 6:7-15 THE DOME BLOG - February 24, 2015 First Week of Lent — Matthew 6:7-15 In today's Gospel, Jesus is teaching His disciples how to pray. He begins by telling them that words alone are not sufficient. I know well that I say prayers at times, yet I am not fully present to what I am doing. Yes, I am praying the words but my mind may be miles away! One of the gifts of the prayers such as the Our Father and Hail Mary is that I can pray them very easily. They are ingrained in my being. I ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-matthew-67-15.html

The Personal Touch GETTING TO THE POINT - February 24, 2015 ... simple, poor, childlike. Preach the Gospel with your life — without compromise! Listen to the Spirit. He will lead you. Do little things exceedingly well for love of Me. Love... love... love, never counting the cost. Go into the marketplace and stay with Me. Pray, fast. Pray always, fast. Be hidden. Be a light to your neighbour's feet. Go without fear into the depth of men's hearts. I shall be with you. Pray always. I will be your rest. The Little Mandate of Madonna ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-personal-touch.html

Self-Censure THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - February 24, 2015 ... it is. If that is so, and if I am aware that this is the case, that seems to argue that I have definite opinions about the type of conduct God expects of people in situations like this, and that would seem to imply that I think hire-able people are not doing what God expects. Of course, that would be too simplistic. You also have to factor in other things, like the humility required of people, which is of course dictated by an actual honest evaluation of their knowledge of the truth. In other ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2015/02/self-censure.html

Lent, Time for Spiritual Battle Against Evil VIS NEWS - HOLY SEE PRESS OFFICE - February 23, 2015 ... forty days Jesus spent in the desert after his baptism in the river Jordan, was the subject of the Pope's reflection before this Sunday's Angelus prayer with the faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square. On the first Sunday of Lent, Francis explained that during these forty days of solitude in which Jesus prepared himself to announce the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, he "faces Satan 'body to body', he unmasks his temptations and is victorious. And in Him we all ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/02/lent-time-for-spiritual-battle-against.html

Reflection: Mark 1:12-14 THE DOME BLOG - February 22, 2015 First Sunday of Lent – Mark 1:12-15 Today's Gospel is only a few lines long. It is only 4 verses from the 1st Chapter of Mark's Gospel. The Gospel has a stark beginning. Mark writes that Jesus was driven into the desert by the Spirit. As we know, Jesus stayed in the desert for 40 days. What was that time like for Jesus? Was it a spiritually dry time? Or was there a clear sense of God's presence to Jesus? It had to ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-mark-112-14.html

Reading Advent in Lent VOX NOVA - February 22, 2015 It is a bit embarrassing to admit, but I am way behind in my daily readings. As I have mentioned in the past, I get an email from Daily Gospel Online that contains the daily mass readings and a short reflection tied to them. A number of times I have posted these reflections here. The problem, however, is that it is easy for me to get behind. Previously, I have fallen a few days, a week, or even two weeks behind. In those cases, by an act of will I was able ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/02/22/reading-advent-in-lent/

Reflection: Luke 5:27-32 THE DOME BLOG - February 21, 2015 Saturday after Ash Wednesday – Luke 5:27-32 Today we hear the familiar story of the tax collector, Levi. He was sitting at the customs post. Jesus came by and spoke to him. He invited Levi (whom I assume he didn't really know) to follow him. On the spur of the moment, Levi got up, walked away from the customs post and followed Jesus. Levi must have been fairly wealthy. He hosted a great banquet for Jesus at his home. Naturally Levi had invited his friends, many of ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-luke-527-32.html

Reflection: Matthew 9:14-15 THE DOME BLOG - February 20, 2015 Friday after Ash Wednesday – Matthew 9:14-15 This is another very short Gospel reading. Today John's disciples come to Jesus and ask him why he and his disciples don't fast as John and the Pharisees do. Jesus does not answer their question directly. Rather he uses the metaphor of a wedding. Jesus tells them that at a wedding, the guests do not mourn while the bridegroom is still in their presence. The time for fasting is when the bridegroom is ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-matthew-914-15.html

Reflection: Luke 9:22-28 THE DOME BLOG - February 19, 2015 Thursday after Ash Wednesday – Luke: 9:22-28 The beginning of today's Gospel is stark. Jesus informs his disciples that the "Son of Man" will undergo great suffering, be rejected by the temple officials, be killed and then be raised up on the third day! What a sobering Gospel! Put yourself in the disciples' shoes. What would be your reaction to these words? I assume the disciples were shaken by what Jesus said. Yet they also had heard ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-luke-922-28.html

Deny Yourself, Take Up Your Cross Daily and Follow ONE BREAD, ONE BODY - February 18, 2015 A thought struck me from today's Gospel reading (Lk 9:22-25) and a reflection from DailyGospel.org: is it true that there is no other way to escape the cross that we are inevitably challenged with everyday except to reject virtue? Is it inevitable that rejecting sacrifice means embracing sin? Can one only carve out perfect comfort and self-indulgence from injustice to or neglect of others? Hmm..http://onebread.blogspot.com/2015/02/deny-yourself-take-up-your-cross-daily.html

Jesus' Questions: Day 1 HEART OF A MOTHER - February 18, 2015 ... based on the questions Jesus asks within the Gospel of Matthew. I am brainstorming here some ways to discuss these passages with each of my children and am sharing with you in hopes that you and your children might be blessed by daily faith sharing. If you try this with your children, I would love to hear about your conversations in the comments! You are salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be ...http://heartofamother.blogspot.com/2015/02/jesus-questions-day-1.html

Reflection: Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18 THE DOME BLOG - February 18, 2015 Ash Wednesday – Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18 Today we begin the season of Lent. Lent is a time to step back and examine our lives. Lent is a time to repent! Today is the day we receive ashes on our forehead (if we go to church)! The ashes are a symbol of the reality that we came forth from the earth and when we die, we will return to the earth. The words that accompany the offering of ashes remind us that we are "dust." We will have an end. We will die. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-matthew-61-6-16-18.html

February 18 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - February 18, 2015 ... ashes on our foreheads as an outward sign of our willingness to take these 6 weeks and make the most of them in a kind of "inner conversion and renewal" program : TURNING AWAY FROM SIN, BEING FAITHFUL TO THE GOSPEL and what it asks us to do! However, in a few hours the ashes will be washed away, but hopefully not the desire to become introspect and open to the great love of God signified to the enth degree by what Jesus did for us by dying on the Cross. And so it is more ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/02/february-18-homily-for-today.html
