Reflection on Today's Gospel, Sunday, October 19, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - October 19, 2014 Readings for Today Today's gospel is a bit tricky. The Pharisees were trying to trap Jesus as they often did. He was in one of those "darned if He does and darned if He doesn't" situations. Jesus tells them to "give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." At church this morning, our deacon spoke about social justice and the importance of sharing our treasure. Surely that is a good and noble thing, but I don't believe that this is the point ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/reflection-on-todays-gospel-sunday-october-19-2014/

Reflection: Matthew 22:15-21 THE DOME BLOG - October 19, 2014 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 22:15-21 Today's Gospel begins with the Pharisees plotting against Jesus. They ask Jesus if it is lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar. The Pharisees ask the question only because they hope to trap Jesus by his answer. However, Jesus is well aware that they only want to discredit him in the people's eyes. Jesus knew that regardless of how he answered the question, it would be wrong in the mind of the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-matthew-2215-21.html

Reflection: Luke: 10:1-9 THE DOME BLOG - October 18, 2014 Luke: 10:1-9 – 28th Week of Ordinary Time Today the Church celebrates the feast day of St. Luke, one of the four evangelists. In the Gospel Jesus sends 72 of his disciples out into the towns and villages that he intended to visit. These 72 disciples were to inform the people that he was coming. They were to prepare the way for him. Jesus then gives the disciples instructions for this journey. He tells his disciples to pack lightly for the journey. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-101-9.html

Reflection: Luke 12:1-7 THE DOME BLOG - October 17, 2014 Luke 12:1-7 – 28th Week of Ordinary Time The Gospel today is a bit sobering. Jesus tells his disciples that everything that is concealed will be revealed. He also tells them that every secret will be made known. For me, this statement is somewhat intimidating and a bit frightening! Immediately after these words, Jesus completely shifts his focus. He tells his disciples that there is no need to fear when someone threatens to harm you. He reminds that ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-121-7.html

Ignatius House St. Matthias Parish Lanham, Maryland Pope Francis' ... PRAYER ON THE HILL - October 17, 2014 Ignatius House St. Matthias Parish Lanham, Maryland Pope Francis' Reflection Sacred Scripture Dear Friends, In today's homily at St. Martha Chapel, Pope Francis, celebrating Mass honoring St. Ignatius of Antioch, a martyr, speaks about the beginning of our heavenly life here on this earth. The "seal of the Holy Spirit" which we receive during the celebration of our own baptism is the "ticket" for us to earn our way into God's heavenly kingdom. It is God's ...http://prayeronthehill.blogspot.com/2014/10/ignatius-house-st.html

Reflection: Luke 11:42-46 THE DOME BLOG - October 15, 2014 Luke 11:42-46 — 28th Week of Ordinary Time The Gospel today opens with Jesus continuing his confrontation of the Pharisees. Jesus is extremely angry with the Pharisees. He accuses them of paying their tithes simply to "look good" rather than acting out of love of God and/or love and concern for their neighbor. Jesus directly confronts them. He is almost brutal with them. Jesus makes it very clear what he thinks of them. Today Jesus ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1142-46.html

Reflection: Luke 11:37-41 THE DOME BLOG - October 14, 2014 Luke 11:37-41 – 28th Week of Ordinary Time The Gospel for today is extremely short (only 4 verses). Jesus had been preaching much of the day. After he finishes, one of the men in the crowd who was a Pharisee invited Jesus to come to his house and dine with him. Jesus accepted his invitation. The meal had begun when suddenly the host realized that Jesus had not observed the ritual washing that was customary before dining. The man was very surprised ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1137-41.html

Debate of the Synod Fathers Following the Post-Discussion Report VIS NEWS - HOLY SEE PRESS OFFICE - October 14, 2014 ... With regard to access to the sacraments for divorced and remarried persons, for instance, it was said that it is difficult to accept exceptions unless in reality they become a common rule. It was also noted that the word "sin" is almost absent from the Relatio. The prophetic tone of Jesus' words was also mentioned, to avoid the risk of conformity to the mentality of today's world. In relation to homosexuals, moreover, the need for welcome was highlighted, but with the just ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/10/debate-of-synod-fathers-following-post.html

It is this that the bishops of every hue are coming to terms with. When the Gospel and the rules become so completely identified with each other that we cannot tell the difference between them, then man is made for the Sabbath, not the Sabbath for man. Differences will remain, but every pastor knows that when we see the Gospel only in terms of the rule book, even a rule book that has been formed by ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2014/10/vatican-proposes-dramatic-shift-in.html

Truth and Love Belong Together Καθολικός διάκονος - October 13, 2014 In his homily at Mass today in Casa Santa Marta (I love saying those words together!), Pope Francis, without a doubt indirectly referring to the just-released Relatio post disceptationem of the Extraordinary Synod, preached on what he called the "Holy Law." He pointed out that the law is not an end in itself. Towards the conclusion of his homily he posed some questions for us to ponder: And this should make us think: am I attached to my things, my ideas, [are they] closed? ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/10/truth-and-love-belong-together.html

All of this is stated very well in the document's conclusion: The reflections put forward, the fruit of the Synodal dialog that took place in great freedom and a spirit of reciprocal listening, are intended to raise questions and indicate perspectives that will have to be matured and made clearer by the reflection of the local Churches in the year that separates us from the Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of bishops planned for October 2015. These are not ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflections-on-extraordinary-synods-mid.html

Reflection: Matthew: 22:1-14 THE DOME BLOG - October 12, 2014 Matthew: 22:1-14 — 28th Sunday Cycle C Today's Gospel is the story of the king who held a wedding feast for his son and new daughter-in-law. As is our custom today, the king invited guests to come and celebrate this special occasion with the bride and groom and their families. In Jewish life a wedding banquet could last for up to a week. Naturally the king expected that everyone would accept his invitation. His invitation was not ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-matthew-221-14.html

From the Synod PRAYER ON THE HILL - October 12, 2014 ... Canadian Catholic news service, Salt & Light. Because the Cardinal's message is so important, I wish to share one of his insights. He proposed a very simple, yet powerful message concerning one of the problems the current Synod of Bishops (and a group of the laity invited to participate in the dialog) concerning the family. Why so much concern about mercy? We must realize that mercy is central to holy scripture. It is a fundamental of the preaching and teaching of Jesus Christ. Pope ...http://prayeronthehill.blogspot.com/2014/10/from-synod.html

Reflection: Luke 11:27-28 THE DOME BLOG - October 11, 2014 Luke 11:27-28 The Gospel for today is only two verses long. The scene picks up from yesterday's Gospel when Jesus was preaching to the crowds. On this day as he was preaching, a woman in the crowd called out to him and cried out that his mother was "blessed" for giving birth to him and for nursing him! Jesus responds to her comment by saying: it is not enough simply to "hear" the word! What is most important is how we "live" the word each ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1127-28.html

Reflection: Luke 11:5-13 THE DOME BLOG - October 9, 2014 Luke 11:5-13 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus asking his disciples "what they would do" if a friend woke them out of a deep sleep in the middle of the night and asked them for a loaf of bread. Honestly, ask yourself: how would you respond? If the friend continues to persist, most likely we will give them what they want so we can have some peace! Jesus talks about this scenario but then moves into a passage that is very familiar: "Ask and you will receive, ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-115-13.html

Doing What Comes Naturally TEN THOUSAND PLACES - October 9, 2014 In light of what the Church has maintained over the centuries, an examination of the relation of the Gospel of the Family to the experience common to every person can now consider the many problems highlighted in the responses concerning the question of the natural law. In a vast majority of responses and observations, the concept of natural law today turns out to be, in different cultural contexts, highly problematic, if not completely incomprehensible. ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/10/doing-what-comes-naturally.html

It is necessary to reawaken in humanity the sense of belonging to the family unit. In addition, as a reflection of God's love, which is never an isolated love, the family opens one to relationships and bonds with others, thus becoming the foundation for society. Mention was also made of the link between priests and families: they accompany families in all the most important stages of ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/10/fourth-general-congregation-synod.html

Reflection: Luke 10:38-42 THE DOME BLOG - October 7, 2014 Luke 10:38-42 The characters in today's Gospel are very familiar to us: Martha, Mary and Jesus. We know the scene well. Jesus has come to visit Martha and Mary. When Jesus arrives, Martha begins to prepare a meal for Jesus. While Martha was busy in the kitchen, Mary made him comfortable and then sat down to visit with him. However Martha got very upset with Mary because she was "slacking off!" She was not helping Martha prepare the meal. Instead Mary just ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1038-42.html
