When the Saints Go Marching Out THAT THE BONES YOU HAVE CRUSHED MAY THRILL - October 30, 2014 One of the stranger, but mostly unnoticed aspects of papal homilies, is the infrequency with which Pope Francis talks of the Saint commemorated on that particular day in the Church's calendar. It is as if the lives of the Saints are being airbrushed from the Pope's catechesis. I am sure you can find some exceptions and I'm not sure whether this is a Jesuit thing, but I would have thought that the Feast of St Simon and St Jude, glorious Apostles and Martyrs of the Church, ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2014/10/when-saints-go-marching-out.html

Feast of Saint Anthony Claret (24 October 2014) FR. VICTOR BROWN'S CATHOLIC DAILY MESSAGE - October 24, 2014 In the marvelous letter of Saint Paul to the Romans, there is a high point of all of Sacred Scripture.

And if we are heirs of God's glory, then we are, as St. Paul says, "co-heirs ...http://frbrown.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/feast-of-saint-anthony-claret-24-october-2014/

CATHOLIC FIRE - October 24, 2014 Today is the feast of St. Anthony Mary Claret -- a favorite saint that my husband introduced me to about twenty years ago when he gave a teaching on this incredible man of God.

The Christopher Behind Columbus PHAT CATHOLIC APOLOGETICS - October 21, 2014 S o, as I'm sure you know, today is Columbus Day in the US. As you may also know, Christopher Columbus is a very controversial figure. I spent a good part of the day trying to learn more about the man and discern for myself whether he's a villain, a hero, or some mysterious mixture of both. I must say, I'm still undecided. Nowadays, he appears to be more vilified than anything, although I noticed a trend in recent conservative scholarship to make a reappraisal of the man. As ...http://phatcatholic.blogspot.com/2010/10/christopher-behind-columbus.html
