Peter reminds Jesus: "We have given up everything to follow you." Jesus tells Peter that anyone who gives up family, home, job, or land for his sake will receive a reward so great that this individual will receive a hundred times more than he or she gave up.

Reflection for the 8th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - May 22, 2016 ... of the pack. They will see that what they value now has no eternal significance. Their money and reputation will fade away into nothing. But some of those upon whom the world looks with contempt will find themselves right up at the top. People who have given up everything to follow Christ, people who speak out for truth and goodness no matter what the cost, people who are misunderstood and even ridiculed for their faith, these will be the leaders in eternal life. These are the ones who have ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-for-8th-week-in-ordinary.html

Reflection: Mark 9:41-50 THE DOME BLOG - May 19, 2016 Thursday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time - Mark 9:41-50 In this Gospel from Mark, Jesus instructs his disciples: "Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, I say to you, surely will not lose his/her reward."

It would be better for them to have a large millstone put around their necks and then be throw into the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-mark-941-50.html

Reflection for the 7th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 2 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - May 19, 2016 Thursday – Priorities In today's Gospel, Jesus challenges us to examine our priorities. What is more important, He seems to ask, your physical life or your eternal soul? "If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off," He proclaims. "It is better for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands to go into Gehenna, into the unquenchable fire." "And if your foot causes you to sin, cut if off," He continues. "It is better for you to enter into ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-for-7th-week-in-ordinary_19.html

Reflection: Mark 9:38-40 THE DOME BLOG - May 18, 2016 Wednesday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time - Mark 9:38-40 This Gospel begins with John saying to Jesus, "Teacher, we saw a person who was driving out demons. We tried to stop him because he does not follow us." Are the disciples a bit jealous of this person's ability to drive out demons? Do they want to have this kind of power? Jesus says to John, "Do not prevent him. If someone performs a good deed in my name, then who can speak ill of me?" Then Jesus adds: "Whoever is ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-mark-938-40.html

Reflection: John 15:9-17 THE DOME BLOG - May 14, 2016 Saint Matthias, Feast - John 15:9-17 Today we celebrate Saint Matthias, the Apostle. Matthias was not one of the 12 men whom Jesus called to be His disciples. Matthias had followed Jesus and learned from Him, but was not an original apostle. Matthias was the man chosen by lot to replace Judas. In today's Gospel Jesus tells his disciples: "As the Father has loved me, so I also love you. Remain in my love." He reassures them: "If you keep ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-john-159-17.html

Reflection for the 7th Week of Easter, Part 2 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - May 12, 2016 Thursday – Confidence Today's psalm emphasizes the confidence that we can and should have in our loving God. The Lord is our refuge, that safe place where we can go for help and healing. He nourishes us with the best food and gives us the best advice. He stays right next to us all the time, closer to us than we are to ourselves. We may not always feel His presence, but He is always there, caring for us, comforting us, teaching us. He will never abandon us. Therefore, ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-for-7th-week-of-easter-part-2.html

Reflection for the 7th Week of Easter, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - May 8, 2016 ... believers and the emotional benefits of faith. While emotion is certainly part of the picture, it doesn't provide a very strong foundation for faith. Feelings can change quickly, and when the emotional high goes away, faith can soon follow if it isn't build on something stronger. That's why Paul focused so much on reason and will. When our faith is based on strong, rational, intellectual evidence and argument, it is a lot less likely to sway with every emotional breeze. Therefore, we must seek ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-for-7th-week-of-easter-part-1.html

Paul was hurrying to Jerusalem in order to get there for Pentecost (Acts 20:16). Pentecost is coming next Sunday, and with it our commemoration of the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. Already, the Spirit is with us. And today we remember the fathers of the first ecumenical council, which met in Nicaea in 325, and who were also ...http://holydormition.blogspot.com/2016/05/the-holy-spirit-inspires-church.html

Reflection: John 15:26-16:4a THE DOME BLOG - May 2, 2016 Monday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time – John 15:26-16:4a This Gospel begins with Jesus telling his disciples that that he will send an Advocate to them from his Father. This Advocate will be the Spirit of Truth and will testify to Jesus. In turn, the disciples will go forth and testify about Jesus to others and to the world. I wonder what the disciples thought when Jesus told them that they would be changing the world by their testimony? Did they think this would ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-john-1526-164a.html

Reflection for the 6th Week of Easter, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - May 1, 2016 ... those appearances are still alive at the time Paul writes, and they can verify his words. 7. Christ appeared to Paul. These are some of the basics of the Christian faith. Jesus Christ really died to save us and rose again. This is a fact confirmed by witnesses. This kerygma is designed to spark faith in people. When that spark is kindled, it can grow into a flame that leads to deeper knowledge (i.e., of Christ's divinity, the Trinity, etc.) and to the sacraments, in which believers receive ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-for-6th-week-of-easter-part-1.html

Reflection: John 15:18-21 THE DOME BLOG - April 30, 2016 Saturday of the Fifth Week of Easter — John 15:18-21 This Gospel's opening words are a bit startling. Jesus once again is talking with his disciples about the world. He tells them: "If the world hates you, understand that it hated me first." In this passage, Jesus is using the word "world" to describe the people who reject Him and who will persecute Jesus and his followers. Jesus also tells the disciples that they do not belong to the world. Most likely, the world ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/04/reflection-john-1518-21.html

Reflection: John 15:9-11 THE DOME BLOG - April 28, 2016 Thursday of the Fifth Week of Easter - John 15:9-11 This Gospel is very brief: only 3 verses. Yet it is a powerful and loving reading. Jesus tells us that He loves us as deeply as His Father loves Him. Think about that for moment. Who are the people you love most deeply: your spouse, your children, your parents, or a very good friend? Now choose one person you care deeply about and ask yourself: What does that person mean to me? What are the gifts he or she shares with ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/04/reflection-john-159-11.html

Reflection for the 5th Week of Easter, Part 2 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - April 27, 2016 Thursday – Joy In today's Gospel, Jesus desires that His joy may be in His disciples and that their joy may be complete. His longing extends to us, too. Jesus wants us to be joyful, filled with joy, a joy that He provides, a joy that is complete. Many of us, however, often feel anything but joyful. We are harried, depressed, anxious, and stressed. Joy seems to play little, if any, part in our lives. How, then, do we become the joyful people that ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/04/reflection-for-5th-week-of-easter-part-2.html

Reflection: Mark 16:15-20 THE DOME BLOG - April 25, 2016 Feast of St. Mark – Mark 16:15-20 Today Jesus appears to His disciples. His message today is to empower them to go forth into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel. Jesus tells them that if a person believes, that one will be saved. If someone chooses not to believe, they will be condemned. How harsh this sounds! Jesus then tells them that if a person believes, they will have the ability to speak new languages and drive out ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/04/reflection-mark-1615-20.html
