What I Wore Sunday: "Why Can't I Get a Decent Picture?!" Edition! (*Now Updated!*) THE SPIRITUAL WORKOUT - September 7, 2014 ... alone... If he refuses to listen even to the church, then treat him as you would a Gentile or a tax collector." (from Mt 18:15-20) As my priest said today... no one likes the IRS! These readings certainly go against the whole "do whatever you want, whenever you want, and don't tell others what is right and wrong" kind of culture we live in today! How can we possibly live up to being our brother's keeper in a world that decries anything like this as judgment? I think the key here is the reading ...http://spiritualworkoutblog.blogspot.com/2014/09/what-i-wore-sunday-why-cant-i-get.html

Instead, they should be the opposite: when the strength of the Gospel remains alive in Christians, they can transform "mankind's criteria of judgement, determining values, points of interest, lines of thought, sources of inspiration and models of life", emphasised the Pope, quoting Paul VI. "It is sad to meet Christians who are watered down, like wine; you cannot tell whether they are Christians or worldly, like watered wine; it is impossible to tell whether it is wine or water. It is sad to ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/09/angelus-danger-of-becoming-watered-down.html

Cae La Bomba – With Madrid and Valencia, Francis Plays "Spanish Roulette" WHISPERS IN THE LOGGIA - August 28, 2014 ... Catholic population of just 650,000. While Toledo has routinely been the seat of a Spanish cardinal alongside Madrid and Barcelona, at least to date, his successor there, 70 year-old Braulio Rodriguez, has not been called to follow suit. In another unusual aspect to the shuffle, with today's moves both Osoro and Cañizares have been tapped to lead their third archdiocese. ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2014/08/cae-la-bomba-francis-plays-spanish.html

Saints and Sojourners: From Prison to Divine Mercy THESE STONE WALLS - August 13, 2014 Father Michael Gaitley's 'Do-It-Yourself' retreat, Consoling the Heart of Jesus has concluded behind these stone walls, and its ripple effect has begun to show. I cannot let this week pass without mention of two great Saints whose Feast Days the Church remembers this month. Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (August 9), known also as Edith Stein, was honored in a post of mine entitled, " Saints and Sacrifices: Maximilian Kolbe and Edith Stein at Auschwitz ." Her story is ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/6NdEtD37cjw/

An Ordinary's Not So Ordinary Life, Chapter Ten ABYSSUS ABYSSUM INVOCAT / DEEP CALLS TO DEEP - August 13, 2014 ... grew in Europe. To curb this abuse Rome added a canon to the Code of Canon Law which sought to penalize any monks in solemn vows who left their monastery and so Canon 642 came into being and it was under that canon of the 1917 Code that I was dispensed from my solemn vows. Here is canon 642: Can 642 §1. Quilibet professus, ad saeculum regressus, licet valeat, ad normam can. 641, sacros ordines exercere, prohibetur tamen sine novo et speciali Sanctae Sedis indulto: 1º Quolibet ...http://abyssum.org/2014/08/13/an-ordinarys-not-so-ordinary-life-chapter-ten/

Homily Prep August 3 THE MATADOR WORD - July 31, 2014 ... kinsman John the Baptist and he "withdraws". He is tempted, just as he was in the desert, and this time to get away from the companionship. As in the desert, Jesus is saved from this temptation to isolate, to withdraw from companionship, by angels - those more needy than he who sought his companionship...he was rescued by empathy. His empathy pulls him out of the temptation to withdraw and drives him outward into communion with those who longed for him. This temptation of Christ is a sign to ...http://thematadorword.blogspot.com/2014/07/homily-prep-august-3.html

Devotion to the Prayer of the Church VULTUS CHRISTI - July 21, 2014 ... dated 9 May 1917, Abbot Marmion treats extensively of the sacred liturgy, taking care to affirm that the liturgy is not a peculiarly Benedictine treasure , but belongs to the whole Church — to Carmelites as much as to Benedictines — and is the nourishment best adapted to all souls. I have translated only the relevant portions of this letter and an interesting bit about the Community of secular priests that flourished in the Diocese of Ferns early in the last ...http://vultus.stblogs.org/index.php/2014/07/devotion-to-the-prayer-of-the-church/

Fr Seraphim Michalenko on a Mission of Divine Mercy THESE STONE WALLS - July 16, 2014 Midway in our Consoling the Heart of Jesus retreat in prison, Fr Seraphim Michalenko, Director of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy, fulfilled Hebrews 13:3. Some strange and interesting things are happening behind These Stone Walls this summer, and it's a task and a half to stay ahead of them and reflect a little so I can write of them. In too many ways to describe, we sometimes feel swept off our feet by the intricate threads of connection that are being woven, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/PBsaaWPc5ds/

A Reminder of the Needs of Our Dominican Sisters in Summit, New Jersey DOMINICAN LITURGY - July 9, 2014 ... letter: Pax Christi! We have launched a capital campaign to build a much needed new wing onto our monastery. Our monastery looks big but it's because it is nearly all chapel! Our chapel is nearly the size of our local Catholic Church! We are running out of cell space in the professed dorm and need to take back the cells used for work and sewing rooms. Any "extra" space that would be standard in a monastery was sacrificed in order to make building our monastery possible after ...http://dominican-liturgy.blogspot.com/2014/07/a-reminder-of-needs-of-our-dominican.html

The EBSA form is an accommodation the Obama administration put in place for religious employers who are not exempt from the HHS mandate. But Wheaton College and many other religious employers, including Catholic institutions, that have sued over the mandate argue that even filling out the form to direct a third party to take care of the coverage makes them complicit in providing coverage ...http://cnsblog.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/court-grants-college-temporary-relief-from-hhs-mandate/

Loving Wingless Chickens TEN THOUSAND PLACES - May 28, 2014 While I'm off on retreat, I thought I would reprint the five most popular posts of all time on the blog. This one is originally from June, 2013. Enjoy! I write the way I do because (not though) I am a Catholic. This is a fact and nothing covers it like the bald statement. However I am a Catholic peculiarly possessed of the modern condition, that thing Jung describes as unhistorical, solitary, and guilty. To possess this within the Church is to bear a burden, the ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/05/loving-wingless-chickens.html
