The kingdom of God is supported by an even greater force, the one that created the universe, God's kenotic, self-emptying love. In order to function, it needs people who will heroically place themselves at God's disposition, at whatever the cost to themselves, so that God's power can flow through them. Central to the establishment of this kingdom is Christ's own vocation, whose way is the way of obedience to his Father, even under the most extreme ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2016/03/on-palm-sunday-church-celebrates-main.html
Preaching Perhaps! Ordination Not Likely. IN PRINCIPIO ERAT VERBUM - March 3, 2016 The recent headline regarding the potential of permitting women to preach in the Catholic Church during the Liturgy of the Eucharist raises quite a few eyebrows, if not a few theological considerations. Preaching at the Liturgy of the Word has been reserved to deacons, priests and bishops for almost eight hundred years.

THE CELEBRATION OF CONFIRMATION by Dom David Bird MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - January 26, 2016 In "The Meaning of Confirmation" we criticized some of the common ways of explaining what Confirmation is because they are too vague and need something else to make them clear; and we said that that "something" is the liturgy. Liturgy is the product of the synergy between the Holy Spirit and the Church and the proper context in which to understand the sacraments. We then looked at how the Catholic West celebrates ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2016/01/the-celebration-of-confirmation-by-dom.html
