Evangelizing for Most of Us A FOLLOWER OF FRANCIS - August 10, 2017 ... - a tie, a tee-shirt, a mantilla, whatever. Not only can what we wear be a way to witness, it can be a reminder to us to watch what we say and do. And conversely, it can make us more conscious of what we should not wear. Is wearing a "Co-ed Naked Volleyball" tee-shirt really a way to say "I am a Christian" - or something we'd like to face God wearing? Try praying publicly. I remember years ago when I was hitchhiking (yes, you could get away with it in those days), and a man picked me up. We ...http://paxchristirochester.blogspot.com/2017/08/evangelizing-for-most-of-us.html

She surrendered her jeweled belt for a knotted rope, which she fastened around her waist. In a final act of devotion, she permitted St. Francis to cut her long hair, in order that she might take the veil. A beautiful young Italian noblewoman, Clare was so moved by the preaching of Saint Francis of Assisi that she defied every convention of her privileged life to live the Gospel of Christ. One of St. Francis' first ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/08/saint-clare-of-assisi-virgin-and.html

Revisiting Vocation THE CLOISTERED HEART - August 9, 2017 A religious habit is a sign of an inward consecration. Without this consecration, I can wear every sort of wimple and every length of veil, and still I am not a nun. God called me to a different vocation, and He has given me grace to respond to that one. Is there anything I can learn, however, from looking at the call to religious life? How does that particular call come, and how does a person respond? The following stories are ones I ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2017/08/revisiting-vocation.html

Nun Gazing ... ABBEY ROADS - August 7, 2017 ignogan-Plage. Groupe de femmes en costume de fête (1890-1910) Some Catholics are fascinated by it. Many Catholics lament the abandonment of the religious habit for women religious in active life. Some have retained a modified habit, or a traditional monastic style with a modified veil, some have not. However, early foundresses often adapted the traditional 'fashion' of women's clothing of their time and place. An unique ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2017/08/nun-gazing.html

He recognised himself as one of them but did not know who the other was. Fixing his gaze on him he tried to memorize his features. The next day in some church – no one knows which – he saw, clothed in the habit of a mendicant, the figure revealed to him the night before. Running up to this poor man he embraced him with holy ...http://dominicannunsireland.blogspot.com/2017/08/novena-to-st-dominic-day-4.html

Vocations - What Seems to Work A FOLLOWER OF FRANCIS - July 30, 2017 I've long contended that while many progressive religious orders are slowly dying, ones that are traditional/orthodox in practice - both newly created, and even older ones - are thriving. Among those orders are the Sisters of Life (above), or the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (below). Recently I came across the following passage in the 2009 Vocations Study Overview by the National Religious Vocations Conference that confirmed some of my observations. ...http://paxchristirochester.blogspot.com/2017/07/vocations-what-seems-to-work.html

Our Lady's Scapular FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - July 16, 2017 ... priestly dignity and power, the scapular is now the sign of the monk . In the West , in the case of St. Benedict , the scapular was at first nothing else than a working garment or apron such as was then worn by agricultural labourers. Thus, in the Rule of St. Benedict , it was expressly termed " scapulare propter opera" (c. xxv in P.L. LXXVI , 771). From this developed the special monastic garment, to which a hood could be fastened at the back. In fact, the original scapular of the Dominican ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2017/07/our-ladys-scapular.html

However, the history of the brown scapular begins long before the 13th century, originating with the mantle of the prophet Elijah in the Old Testament! To bring the people back from their worship of the false god Baal the prophet Elijah prayed for a drought, which lasted for three and a half years. After this, Elijah climbed Mt. Carmel to petition for the rain to return. A cloud in the shape of a foot came and provided much-needed rain. ...http://newtheologicalmovement.blogspot.com/2017/07/july-16-brown-scapular-of-our-lady-of.html

Now, I'm now free to sit and read my book or sleep leaning against the window, two things I missed about traveling when I was a Sister. Nonetheless, I may be able to finish my book but take off the veil, take off the title of "Sister", take off the religious community's initials, and being a witness of faith, goodness in the world, service and love becomes a whole lot harder. Not just in the airport but in life. It's no longer ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DrinkDeeplyMyDaughter/~3/Tkudp1rOxBA/what-airports-can-teach-you-about.html

I can't condemn them as unfaithful Catholic priests - I think they have an apostolate for those with a foot in the door. I think of Peter Claver and Vincent de Paul who went to the galleys and ministered to slaves and prisoners - people not in the state of grace - likewise, priests in NYC encounter many people not in the state of grace, as well as those who feel they could never be in the state of grace - and who believe 'God hates ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2017/06/so-anyway-just-so-you-understand-im.html
