Holiness and the Way of Perfection LIVING SACRIFICE - February 19, 2017 ... is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell" ( Matthew 5:30 ). Obviously, Jesus is not advocating that we literally mutilate our bodies; He is simply emphasizing the essential need for us to break free of sin at any cost so that we can gain eternal life. While we may wish to consider the call to perfection in a similar vein, the lives of the saints teach us differently. St. Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, reflecting on this Gospel passage back ...http://fathermahars.blogspot.com/2017/02/holiness-and-way-of-perfection.html

She says: "I was an eleven-year-old schoolgirl from Oregon when I had the good fortune to meet Fulton J. Sheen. We became friends and pen pals in his sunset years, and we connected in uncommon circumstances. With age, I began to understand how lucky I was to have met such a human being. I have heard it said that his combination of virtue, intellect, and charisma comes along about ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/BookReviewsAndMore/~3/iwACt9bO9X8/the-archbishop-and-i-my-childhood.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

Do What They Say, Not What They Do. BLOG OF THE DORMITION - February 5, 2017 ... sell illegal drugs or any other sin. "Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!" (Rom 6:15). The Pharisee was not an extortioner. He was not unjust. He was not an adulterer. He fasted twice a week and paid his full tithe to the temple. Jesus elsewhere praises these things by his words and his actions. Just last week, when the tax collector Zacchaeus repents before Jesus of defrauding people of their income, Jesus responds, saying "Today salvation has come to this ...http://holydormition.blogspot.com/2017/02/do-what-they-say-not-what-they-do.html

A New Resolution HEART OF A MOTHER - January 31, 2017 (alternate title - The Day I Was Humbled Into Action by Elizabeth Foss Quoting Me!) Just a short bit ago (yesterday perhaps) I was lamenting my prayer life. I just do not take the time I know I need to spend with my Lord in order to receive enough graces to get through each day. I am weary. This road is long and hard, as it should be, but that's a deep thought for another day. A couple of weeks ago, the Lord reminded me that, "In the beginning was the ...http://heartofamother.blogspot.com/2017/01/a-new-resolution.html

REFLECTIONS AND RUMINATIONS - January 29, 2017 ... 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 for such gatherings unless there is a very special reason to make an appearance, like at weddings or special birthdays, or when there is a funeral. Some really understand the need for maintaining and contributing to familial bonds, whilst others could be so wrapped up in their own worlds and work that they think that taking part in ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2017/01/seeing-church-as-family-must-somehow.html

New Beginnings and the Light of Christ LIVING SACRIFICE - January 22, 2017 ... made some New Year's resolutions earlier this month, and, like most people, maybe you have had the chance to break them! No matter. In the Christian life and in our spiritual relationship with Christ, there is always an opportunity to begin again. Our gospel this weekend tells the story of new beginnings: the start of Jesus' public ministry, the calling of the first Apostles, Peter and Andrew, James and John. And St. Matthew tells us that it all began "in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of ...http://fathermahars.blogspot.com/2017/01/new-beginnings-light-of-christ.html

"So everyone was saying, 'Let's do it before World Youth Day, and let's start in Rome; after all, the Pope is inviting everyone to Krakow, not to Rome,'" he recalled. "The foundation of the Church is in Rome, but the heart is Krakow. The great saints of Krakow made their pilgrimages to Rome, following this historic route: Via Slavorum , the 'Way of the Slavs,'" he added.

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

State of the Blog Address (Or, Will the Bubble Burst?) LITTLE CATHOLIC BUBBLE - January 5, 2017 ... Longer answer: Nearly seven years ago, on April 3, 2010, the Little Catholic Bubble was launched , mainly for my Catholic friends who wanted a little boost in catechesis and fun but substantive Catholic conversation. Back then, I had just turned 43, my oldest child was a freshman in college, and my eighth (and last) child was just a few weeks old. Today, I am about to turn 50, my oldest three children are married, and I have five grandchildren! I have loved (almost!) every ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/LittleCatholicBubble/~3/VLgw-NLK4o4/state-of-blog-address-or-will-bubble.html

His first care was the direction of the Council of Trent. He urged forward its sessions, guided its deliberations by continual correspondence from Rome, and by his firmness carried it to its conclusion. Then he entered upon a still more arduous work - the execution of its decrees. As Archbishop of Milan, he enforced their observance, and thoroughly restored the discipline of his ...http://phatcatholic.blogspot.com/2016/11/for-memorial-of-st-charles-borromeo.html

Anthropomorphic 2016 THE CURT JESTER - December 31, 2016 ... 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. See Sturgeon's Law . ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/splendoroftruth/lNZE/~3/QRXs34kCiCM/

Jesus - Are You the One????? FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - December 11, 2016 ... the Jordan river. When cousin Jesus comes to the river, looking for this Baptism, John hesitates - knowing that Jesus is "mightier than he is" - even arguing that it should be the other way around, that he, John should be baptized by Jesus. John the Baptist relents, (Jesus can be convincing) and as he Baptizes Jesus, and we learn that the sky break into two, the Spirit descends upon Jesus -oh and yeah, the voice of God is heard saying "This is my beloved Son, listen to Him." How awesome a ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2016/12/jesus-are-you-one.html

Waiting in Joyful Hope YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - December 1, 2016 ... friends. Load up your December calendar with Christmas parties, Christmas concerts and the like. Wait? We've mentally, emotionally and spiritually already skipped right over Advent. Wait in joyful hope? Maybe it's just the darkness of the long winter nights, but I find many people discouraged. Perhaps your Thanksgiving dinner tableau didn't exactly resemble a Norman Rockwell painting, and there were tensions among those around your table. Maybe you shudder at the recent ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/12/waiting-in-joyful-hope.html

A Crack in the Everyday THE CLOISTERED HEART - November 30, 2016 ... no time to think about God; in fact, I was ignoring Him altogether. God, however, was 'thinking' of me, and began reminding me of Himself through a series of little seasonal things. A song heard on the radio, a nativity scene featured on the courthouse steps, Christmas songs piped into stores to draw customers, strains of O Come Let Us Adore Him wedged between Have a Holly Jolly Christmas and Here Comes Santa Claus. One song in particular stood out to me that year, with its announcement that ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2016/11/a-crack-in-everyday.html

Pastoral Letter MARY AND JOSEPH'S GEM - November 27, 2016 ... attention, briefly, in this short letter. I am very pleased to say that real progress is being made in finalising the plan for the Diocese. The "proposal document" published in June of this year brought a wealth of responses and the experience and ideas contained in them has meant that it is taking longer than I had initially anticipated to reach conclusions. So I now intend to have the final document ready for publication on the weekend of 14 th and 15 th January. Given the ...http://mariesgem.blogspot.com/2016/11/pastoral-letter_27.html

As I said last week, I use this as an opportunity to summarize my week and events that are going on in the Small Town. Sunday between Masses, our parish held a "Harvest of Blessings" in the Parish Hall. Different ministries set up tables to give parishioners information and a chance to donate to the different ministries. So, yeah; it's a fundraiser.
