And God Said, "Don't Worry. I've Got This." HEART OF A MOTHER - July 27, 2015 Con mi familia en Cholula, Puebla I heard from a few of you that just reading my previous post made you tired. No kidding! Me too! Writing all of that out was truly an exercise in humility, wondering how in the world it is I do all of those things and reflecting on which of those things, if any, I'm not truly called to be doing. As I gear up for our school year, typing courses of study and lesson plans, organizing books and materials, my brain is on ...http://heartofamother.blogspot.com/2015/07/and-god-said-dont-worry-ive-got-this.html

Raising Kids Who Read {Kindle or Real Books?} BLESSED BY GOD - July 17, 2015 ... the stories of the Saints. Being in a book store brought peace to my soul. With the dawn of the internet and my beloved Amazon.com (sorry...it's easy and cheap) my visits to book stores decreased. With Amazon there was no need to sift through piles of undesirable books or be assaulted with offensive magazines on the end caps to find the book I was looking for. Not to mention trudging through those places with half a dozen or more kids wasn't quite as quaint as it had been when ...http://ekblad9.blogspot.com/2015/07/raising-kids-who-read-kindle-or-real.html

The government has decreed and we will find out the ramifications of this decision as the years go by. In the days of Nero, Christian people were different that those in the prevailing culture. Their beliefs were different, but they also set themselves apart by how they lived and treated other people. Prevailing pagan culture respected only the respectable. If you had a position, were an ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2015/07/first-martyrs-of-church-of-rome.html

Saints for All Seasons P R WOMAN FOR CHRIST - June 22, 2015 ... neighbor. St. John Fisher died a few days before Sir Thomas More. Of all the Catholic bishops in England, Fisher stood alone as one who would not condone Henry's repudiation of his first wife for the ill-fated Anne Boleyn. (After three years as King Henry's consort, she was executed.) Fisher was made Bishop after a distinguished tenure in Cambridge. He was known for his skill as a great preacher and theologian. He was put to death on this date in 1535 for refusing to give in to King Henry ...http://prwomanforchrist.blogspot.com/2015/06/saints-for-all-seasons.html

Forgiveness Is Hell VOX NOVA - June 21, 2015 ... what you will, and we will still love you…. Bomb our homes and threaten our children and as difficult as it is, we will still love you. Send your hooded perpetrators and violence into our communities at the midnight hours and drag us out on some wayside road and beat us and leave us half-dead and we will still love you. But be assured that we will wear you down by our capacity to suffer. And one day we will win our freedom: but we will not only win ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/06/21/forgiveness-is-hell/

Totus Tuus: The Key to St. Pope John Paul the Great DA MIHI ANIMAS - June 18, 2015 ... that when he was shot in St. Peter's Square on May 13, 1981 and lay back in the vehicle, he looked up searching for an image of Our Lady. He found none. As a result, Pope John Paul II had a mosaic of Mary, Mater Ecclesiae (Mother of the Church) placed in the plaza later that same year, inaugurating it on December 8, 1981. Below the colorful image of Mary holding the Christ child are the words Totus Tuus ("Totally Yours"), the Pope's papal motto.

The Shepherd - God Is With Us DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - June 8, 2015 ... read, however, my mind focused on Jesus' initial words, telling His disciple to go into the city and prepare the room they would use to celebrate the Passover meal --- His final meal with them, His FINAL meal. There would be no more meetings of all these friends in this way; this was The Last Supper. What would we do if we, like Jesus, knew this was to be our last meal with our spouse, or our children, or our friends --- our last supper? What words would we say to those we ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-shepherd-god-is-with-us.html

Chartres Meditation 3: And the Word Lived Amongst Us COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - May 30, 2015 This is the third of this year's Chartres meditations. I realised I dived into these with little explanation. I should have told you that the pattern for the meditations each day is: first, a meditation on the saints under whose patronage we march each day (this changes every day, and is different each year); this year we marched under the patronage of Sts Athanasius and Hilary on day one, Sts Louis and Catherine of Siena on day two, and ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2015/05/chartres-meditation-3-and-word-lived.html

"apostle of Rome" and founder of the Congregation of the Oratory that, as Pope Francis writes in a letter addressed to the procurator general Fr.

Memories of Maureen, My Sister CATHOLIC FIRE - May 23, 2015 ... Her music, singing, dancing, talking, arguing, and playing were all loud. She may have been the youngest, but she was bound and determined to get attention one way or another. During mom's sleeping hours, I usually quietly read books or acted out a play with my collection of plastic dolls and stuffed animals. Maureen, on the other hand, was often moving furniture, stomping on the floor or making some disturbance that woke up my mom, who was fast asleep downstairs. I warned ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2015/05/memories-of-maureen-my-sister.html

The Language of Love With Fr. Tim Kitzke IMPRISONED IN MY BONES - May 21, 2015 ... feeling nervous about the picture, told himself, "Tim, it's just a thing, let it go." And the next thing he saw was little Lena looking at the image on the painting, and then she took her pacifier out of her mouth and tried to put it into baby Jesus' mouth! He said this was a great symbol! We're supposed to be pacifiers if we're living the language of love. When Jesus ascends to heaven it's not to leave us as orphans, but so that we can take our proper role. If Jesus were ...http://annebender.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-language-of-love-with-fr-tim-kitzke.html

Deo Gratias, because he used that blessing whenever he received an alms or greeted passersby. Gratitude and joy was a hallmark of his spirituality. He was a dear friend of St. Philip Neri, as well an acquaintance of St. Charles Borromeo. He was beloved by the people of Rome, revered for his sanctity, healing, even preaching.

The Best Read Aloud Book This Year HOMESCHOOLING WITH JOY - May 4, 2015 Last summer, as I was planning for the school year, I knew that I wanted to revive our Read Aloud time. Like most homeschooling mothers of many children, I used to read aloud a lot when my oldest kids were little. As they grew and things got busy, reading aloud usually went out the window. Oh, every once in awhile we'd grab a book and read it together, but never with any great frequency. This year I was determined to bring it back for my youngest two. Mr 10 ...http://hsjoy.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-best-read-aloud-book-this-year.html

What's on Your Spiritual Reading List? THE CATHOLIC YOUNG WOMAN - April 29, 2015 I've always loved this quotation from St. Josemaria Escriva: "Spiritual reading has made many saints." It's certainly true that, if you look at the lives of the saints, many of them came to know God through reading. Some examples include St. Teresa of Avila, St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Edith Stein... can you think of others? Keeping this in mind, I try to keep a regular habit of spiritual reading. I find ...http://catholicyoungwoman.blogspot.com/2015/04/whats-on-your-spiritual-reading-list.html

"No One Has Won Anything Here; We've All Lost." SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - April 29, 2015 ... all, for the instigators of this unfortunate event, the issue was never the Ratigan affair. There were definitely mistakes made in handling the situation by people who, it turned out, were in over their heads, but there was never any malice, or impulse to cover up anything. I will not recount the story here, but I will say this: If this had happened on another, more popular bishop's watch, the aftermath we have seen would not have occurred, because the motivation for the mob-scene ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2015/04/no-one-has-won-anything-here-weve-all.html
