Just Because the Story Seems Strange, Doesn't Mean It Isn't True SERVANT AND STEWARD - June 15, 2017 The hagiographies of the Saints are filled with a wide variety of interactions between humans and animals, some of which seem rather fanciful, such as the talking camel found in the legend of Saints Cosmas and Damian or the donkey who knelt before the Eucharist for Saint Anthony of Padua. Some modern people happily write off these stories as pure imagination, giving them no credence whatever. While acknowledging they are a bit strange, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/BWqTvalk_yE/just-because-story-seems-strange-doesnt.html

If we say "O God, make me free from this or that temptation" while at the same time seeking every possible way of falling to just such a temptation, hoping now that God is in control, that He will get us out of it, then we do not stand much chance. God gives us strength but we must use it. When, in our prayers, we ask God to give us strength to do something in His Name, we are not asking Him to do it instead of us because we are too feeble to be willing to do ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2017/05/st-philip-neris-feast-day-or-did.html

Review: Littlest Suffering Souls DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - May 29, 2017 "There will be saints among the children," said Pope Pius X, and he lowered the age for First Holy Communion because of a 4-year old's desire to receive Jesus. It wasn't until 1981, however, that the Church began considering non-martyred children for sainthood, as shown in the recent example of the children of Fatima. The half dozen stories in this book are of young disease-ridden children who suffered much and died, willingly, for Jesus. These ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2017/05/review-littlest-suffering-souls.html

Father Rutler: The Indispensable Church SUNLIT UPLANDS - May 21, 2017 ... Church is indispensable. With deliberate symmetry, the Lord invoked the pattern of forty days that is threaded through salvation history, spending forty days on earth from his Resurrection to his Ascension. His departure from this world was the means by which he could be omnipresent, no longer confined to one generation in time or one acre of space. His instruction as he ascended was to bring others into his Church: "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/SunlitUplands/~3/m-M_jn8ynKE/father-rutler-indispensible-church.html

Pray for Marriages (Hope Does Not Disappoint) SIMPLY INSPIRED PRAYER - April 17, 2017 Greetings Prayer Warriors, What's interesting about the bible is that it isn't filled with stories about saints, but rather riveting stories about sinners.

But what is so mind-blowing in these stories is how the grace of God transforms some of the worst sinners into the biggest saints. ...http://simplyinspiredprayer.blogspot.com/2017/04/pray-for-marriages-hope-does-not.html

Saint Magnus the Last Viking - Susan Peek BOOK REVIEWS AND MORE - April 5, 2017 ... brings them alive in the imaginations, minds, and hearts of readers. The story is wonderfully written. There are battle scenes without being over the top. There is conflict and strife without it being ridiculous. And there are a number of characters who exhibit strong faith and end up having influence on those around them. When I read books one of my keys to judging them is would I share it with my children, now, or when they are older. And would I recommend it to others.
