I have often pondered over the meaning of those final words in the Lord's Prayer and I want to pay some attention to them with you today. Throughout the centuries there has been any number of translations of the original Hebrew words that Jesus used when He taught the Lord's Prayer. For instance, most of the original translations did not say "And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." Instead the phrase was translated ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/02/homily-for-1st-sunday-in-lent-march-5.html

Furthermore, the majority of sexual abuse of minors among Catholic priests was committed against boys and adolescent young men. In other words, there was a homosexual dimension to the abuse. Clearly, these are not men who simply "need to find a good woman." Their particular appetites were not likely to be cured, or controlled, by marriage. The simplistic charge that the discipline of celibacy causes sexual abuse is easily dismissed. However, the question is not so straightforward. One ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/its-not-celibacy-but-distorted-view-of.html

Pray for Marriages (Sustaining It's Life) SIMPLY INSPIRED PRAYER - February 7, 2017 Greetings Prayer Warriors, To set and achieve a goal takes thought, preparation, perseverance and hard work. Consider the effort it takes to earn a degree, get promoted in a job, or to master a skill. Strangely, to make a lifelong commitment to stand by and stay with another person encompasses only mutual consent. There is little preparation, but instead lots of feelings and emotions. It's no wonder so many marriages fail! Luckily, when we make a covenantal vow before the ...http://simplyinspiredprayer.blogspot.com/2017/02/pray-for-marriages-sustaining-its-life.html

He was honest with his employer and faithful to his wife. The other man was a drug dealer from the neighborhood. What if Jesus's parable of the publican and the Pharisee (Luke 18:10-14) began this way? I retell it this way to help us hear what Jesus is really saying. In this day and age, when we hear the word "Pharisee," we think immediately of hypocrisy. Its second definition in the ...http://holydormition.blogspot.com/2017/02/do-what-they-say-not-what-they-do.html

The Gift (Our NFP Story) Part 2 BLESSED WITH FULL HANDS - January 30, 2017 ... God is and we knew that and honored it. And, honestly, it was easy most of the time. We followed the strictest guidelines for NFP with little trouble, even as the years passed and I aged and the signs changed a bit. I truly believe that it all was a gift from God. In 2013, we began the process of adoption, and were blessed with the gift of Felicity in October, 2014. Six months later, we began the process to bring Thomas home. I often called Thomas our "surprise adoption" because we did not ...http://blessedwithfullhands.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-gift-our-nfp-story-part-2.html

This is a time of making visits to friends and family, giving us the opportunity to meet kith and kin who we seldom see, reminding us of the largeness of our family tree, with its sometimes 'hidden' branches. No one chooses the family one belongs to. Each family, without exception, will have its members who are very visible, very active and do much to 'hold it all together'. There will also be members who do not come ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2017/01/seeing-church-as-family-must-somehow.html

What Do You See? FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - January 15, 2017 ... all over the world, especially in the last few decades. Recent popes have often mentioned him and quoted him in their World Youth Day talks and homilies—and in other addresses they've given where lots of young people have been present. Pier Giorgio was born in Turin, Italy in 1901, and died just 24 years later of polio—a disease that he probably contracted from the many sick people he visited and cared for during his relatively short life. He came from a wealthy ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2017/01/what-do-you-see.html

God's Seed Remains YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - January 4, 2017 ... Jesus remains where he is welcomed. Jesus planted a seed of righteousness with Andrew and John and the Word caught on fire in them. As a verb, to stay means to stop moving forward. This early in Jesus public ministry, that definition is not relevant. However, another sense of the verb stay means to remain in place. As an itinerant carpenter-preacher, Jesus rarely stayed in one place too long. However, the spirit of his message took up residence in the hearts and minds of those whose ears ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2017/01/gods-seed-remains.html

Anthropomorphic 2016 THE CURT JESTER - December 31, 2016 ... – series are showing that we don't have a dearth of good writers. This year I think I read more books from indie authors than books from big name publishers. Again reminding me how much talent is out there. Elitist gatekeepers have moved to narratives of political correctness and virtue signaling. The new Dragon Awards, awarded novels I actually read and enjoyed and the Hugo's continued their decline. Sure there is a lot of crap in the indie world – just like the published world. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/splendoroftruth/lNZE/~3/QRXs34kCiCM/

Column: Holy Family: Pondering God-Within QUANTUM THEOLOGY - December 29, 2016 Illustration of the Holy Family from the 15th century Besancon Book of Hours. I encountered this illustration on Twitter, then tracked down the source. I love not only that Mary is reading in bed and St. Joseph is cradling a sleeping infant Christ, but I also adore the cow munching on St. Joseph's halo. The whole scene feels like a lesson in lectio divina , about which the ancient monks advised chewing on scripture as cows on their cud. And my mother was much on my mind ...http://quantumtheology.blogspot.com/2016/12/column-holy-family-pondering-god-within.html

Column: Advent 4: The Dawn From on High QUANTUM THEOLOGY - December 21, 2016 A winter's dawn at Wernersville's Jesuit Center. I am still clinging to Advent, to the minor keys and clear tones, to the short days and the sun that reaches deep into the shadows. I was struck by how much energy the sun puts out — 10 26 joules per second — and how little of it reaches my sunroom floor... This column appeared in at CatholicPhilly.com on 21 December 2016.
