Lessons From the Mystics for Normal People NARU HODO - April 17, 2016 Last weekend was the annual retreat for my Secular Carmelite community, and for the first time since I have been involved we had a Carmelite friar as retreat master. I loved our previous retreat master who preached the last three I attended; his messages moved my heart and have stayed alive with me all this time. But there was something uniquely wonderful about having a Father of my own charism teaching this time. It was not so much the ...http://lift-up-your-hearts.blogspot.com/2016/04/lessons-from-mystics-for-normal-people.html
Leap Day-Book PONDERED IN MY HEART - February 29, 2016 ... this Lent. Moist, dense and nutritious, it's made with lots of dried fruits which give it a pleasant sweetness. Mary Rose makes these, pretty much following the recipe. She makes two at a time, and the rounds keep nicely in cookie tins. Lacking currants she used a combination of raisins, dates, prunes and apricots for the fruits, and about 3/4 cup of honey instead of sugar for a double recipe. Very good with tea, add a bite of cheese and an orange and you have a little lunch. Tomorrow we ...http://ponderedinmyheart.typepad.com/pondered_in_my_heart/2016/02/leap-day-book.html

She mentioned that TSW inspires her "to want to be a better follower of Christ and to accept the things I cannot change in my life." You might instantly recognize the latter half of that sentence as a reference to what is now commonly known as "The Serenity Prayer." It's one of the most famous prayers in common use in Western culture, and a portion of it adorns the walls and literature, of every meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous in the world, as well as ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/eA7_RjlWkeg/
Baptism of Jesus REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - January 10, 2016 I tried to increase the size of the letters and was frustrated so then went to bed thinking I would be able to write on a computer today. I was busy and then I had a wonderful visit from my nephew and his wife this afternoon. It is a very long drive for them but they came at 1:30 and left only at 5:00 and it was so good to see them. I enjoyed their visit immensely. However, I will post about my retreat tomorrow as I need to be on a computer.http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2016/01/baptism-of-jesus.html
