Changes THE CURT JESTER - March 23, 2017 ... process was that I wanted to live a life worthy of her. She who had toiled for years praying for her hardened atheist husband. After being married so long I think it can be rather easy to be set adrift. Still my faith anchors me and helps me from making of fool of myself – or at least more of a fool of myself. Of those changes one was to commit to Daily Mass. My work hours are flexible so I searched through MassTimes.org looking for an early Mass that I could go to and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/splendoroftruth/lNZE/~3/pG513u_-hxY/
Ash Wednesday FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - March 1, 2017 ... glory, which is eternal." Since Old Testament times, ashes have been a symbol of sorrow for sin. "For I did eat ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping." (Psalm 101:10) In the early Church, only "public" sinners, those guilty of murder, adultery, or idolatry, who had formally repented, would receive ashes on Ash Wednesday. During Lent, they would humbly kneel at the doors of the church, not entering until they were given absolution on Holy Thursday. The famous liturgist, Abbot ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2017/03/ash-wednesday.html

From her earliest moments, Angela dedicated herself to fasting, self-sacrifice and prayer; practices she maintained throughout her life. Angela was born in the town of Desenzano del Garda in Lombardy, Italy, the second child of a pious middle class family. At 15, her parents died, leaving her and her older sister orphans.

Jesus - Are You the One????? FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - December 11, 2016 ... of us could fill in the blanks with names, faces, details that each of us know – or perhaps are going through ourselves. These are some of the intentions that we "hold in our hearts and now recall in silence" as we pause for a moment in the Prayer of the Faithful that never seems long enough to get them all in. There's something about hearing these stories, knowing these realities exist in mid-December that seems extra-wrong. As if we should be able to lodge a complaint ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2016/12/jesus-are-you-one.html
Please! A Simple Version of the Anglican Ordinariate Office for Lay People NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - December 6, 2016 Here is a both a request and proposal for the Anglican Ordinariate, if I may be so bold. Can you produce a version that can be reduced to a short booklet containing the Psalter and the unchanging prayers? If, in addition to that, we can find a way for the changing parts to be supplied by smart phone, then I think that you will have something that will really catch on. It will be simple to use and cheap. If the Ordinariate would produce something like this, then I for one ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/YFuoAxa5k6Y/please-simple-version-of-anglican.html

I long for the luxury of waiting, of having time to sit and watch, to take long stretches for prayer. But the Advent I dream of is not the Advent I have. So I take heart in theologian and Jesuit Father Walter Burghardt's encouragement to be aware of what is right before us: "This very moment, for all its imperfection and frustration, is pregnant with possibilities, pregnant with the future, ...http://quantumtheology.blogspot.com/2016/12/column-advent-1-this-very-moment.html
Advent Is IMPERATIVE! HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - November 27, 2016 If the parish ever runs short of money and I need to moonlight, I have a perfect job waiting for me: teaching grammar. It seems almost everyone I know under forty has forgotten the basic rules of English grammar. Just about every day I hear someone say "her and me went down to McDonalds." On the radio this week I heard "Less people attended the rally this year." Come on! Less rain, maybe, but fewer people. Some of our younger parishioners consider me a badge-carrying member ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2016/11/advent-is-imperative.html
