St Pio of Pietrelcina CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - September 23, 2014 St Pio is not a saint to whom I take naturally, so it was rather a challenge at the time of his canonisation to engage with the stories of his life and to try and understand that life as a charism and a mission for the Church. Below is part of an article I wrote at that time. It tries to identify exactly what was St Pio's mission in and for the Church. I think the prime source for the account of the pain he experienced during the celebration of Mass is the testimony of ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2014/09/st-pio-of-pietrelcina.html
An Irritated Abbot and a Call to Authentic Community in Parish Life SERVANT AND STEWARD - September 20, 2014 What may well be my favorite scene in Mel Brooks' (???) Robin Hood: Men in Tights comes almost at the end of the movie. As the Abbot greets certain persons as processes up the aisle in full ceremonial vesture for the wedding of Robin Hood to the Maid Marian, one man cries out to him, "Hey, Aabboott!" The displeasure of the Abbot – his disgust, even – clearly shows on his face (which is, thankfully, in front of and away from the man crying out ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/JiU5F3n3eN8/an-irritated-abbot-and-call-to.html

Robin Williams, Suicide, and Hope A CATHOLIC CITIZEN IN AMERICA - August 17, 2014 Robin Williams was a few months older than I am when he died. That photo is from 1979, when he was becoming famous for his role in " Mork & Mindy ." I admire Williams' work, regret his addiction to cocaine and alcohol, and am sorry that he is dead. He was a remarkably talented actor and comedian. Sadly, he apparently decided to hang himself. We can't be sure, but it's likely that suffering from depression had something to do with his death. Celebrity deaths get heavy ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/ACatholicCitizenInAmerica/~3/seJruNXAJ14/robin-williams-suicide-and-hope.html
