Solemnity of the Assumption, Cycle A LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - August 15, 2017 ... generations will not call us holy and blessed, but, if we are living as Mary did, that shouldn't be our goal, our goal, our constant desire, like Mary, should be to live a life of holiness, to live a life of humility, to have the ability to step out of the way and let Christ shine through us, to be that source of magnification, the microscope, the magnifying glass that is constantly seeking and finding new ways of letting God be known throughout the entire world. In fact, that ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2017/08/solemnity-of-assumption-cycle-a.html

Pondering Tidbits of Truth - August 10, 2017 HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - August 10, 2017 Pondering Tidbits of Truth is my simple and inadequate way of providing nuggets of spiritual wisdom for you to chew on from time to time . Father Jacques Phillipe "Íf people know what they must do today and commit themselves to doing it and leave tomorrow to God's providence, all is well. What more can anyone do? Take the step that needs taking today. Take another step tomorrow. Every day will have its own steps to take."

Studying Nature MARTA, JULIE E MARIA - August 2, 2017 ... seem basic, and it is, because I know NOTHING about plant and animal classification, but it was a game-changer for me. Now I have a goal. Addie is still little, so I still have some years to educate MYSELF on simple nature classification and especially appreciation. I ordered some books online (see above) and am really dedicating myself to this task. We have since been back with neighbors, which is so much nicer, and have tried to include a picnic dinner, which is also ...http://martajuliemaria.blogspot.com/2017/08/studying-nature.html

Year a Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Καθολικός διάκονος - July 30, 2017 ... simple enough, but we live in a technological age that demands exactness and precision. We are uneasy with paradox and ambiguity. If only Jesus had satisfied our need for exactness and given a precise definition of what the kingdom is and exactly where and when it occurs. I guess that's why we have systematic theologians. Take today's first parable as an example of the Lord's indirectness. One might well respond to this story moralistically and say that the person who found ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/07/year-seventeenth-sunday-in-ordinary-time_30.html

Comfort in the Rosary GALACTIC CATHOLIC UNIVERSE - July 25, 2017 Growing up, we had a small clock on the living room fireplace that had to be wound by hand on a regular basis. I liked watching my dad wind it. I liked the sound so much so that when I couldn't sleep, I would go to that room and the ticking would help me sleep on the couch nearby. I like to have a ticking clock that I can listen to, to this day. It is a symbol of time passing but also gives me a sense of comfort. I often find the same comfort in the rosary. When I was ...http://galacticcatholicuniverse.blogspot.com/2017/07/comfort-in-rosary.html

Who Am I to Judge? A FRIAR'S LIFE - July 22, 2017 ... angry pigeon that was dive-bombing in my direction. I quickly discovered this was a mother pigeon protecting two eggs nearby. So, I gave Mama her space. A week later I checked to see if I had any new pigeon chicks in the alleyway. What I saw was the Mom protecting one cute little chick, and the second egg cast outside of the nest. And it was a sad sight – to see the Mom protecting one, but having cast off another. I reminded myself that that was simply the way it goes sometimes in the ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2017/07/who-am-i-to-judge.html

St. Francis's Christmas Miracle ANGELS AND SAINTS . . . AND THE REST OF US - July 20, 2017 Living nativities–those church-produced (predominantly Protestant) programs that recreate the birth of Jesus with live actors, animals and elaborate props–are wildly popular during the Christmas season, often moving audiences to tears as the birth of the God-Man plays forth in a reverent, tender, and visually-satisfying 3D manner. We Catholics, however, can take credit for the first living nativity (excluding, of course, the Actual Event), and ...http://angelsandsaintsandus.blogspot.com/2011/12/st-francis-christmas-miracle.html

The Commandments and St. Birgitta Part II: The Punishment of God on Laity and the Pope! CATHOLIC CHAMPION BLOG - July 18, 2017 ... be sentenced to the punishment which David speaks, 'May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow and may strangers take over his property.' What does his wife mean if not the soul that is left out of the glory of heaven and will be widowed from God? His children, that is, the virtues they seemed to possess, and my simple folk, those who were placed under them will be separated from them. Their rank and property will fall to others, and they will inherit shame instead of ...http://catholicchampion.blogspot.com/2017/07/the-commandments-and-st-birgitta-part.html

Loving God's Word! A FRIAR'S LIFE - July 15, 2017 ... question, "What was the homily about?" Stunned, they looked one to the other – not one of them could remember. So, the Bishop said, "Let him preach it one more time." They say that there are three things that St. Peter will ask you at the Pearly Gates if you want to get into Heaven: What was Sunday's First Reading? Second Reading? And Gospel Reading? How many of us could answer today? My friends, what place does God's Word, Sacred Scripture, hold in our lives? In our first reading we ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2017/07/loving-gods-word.html

Covenants, Games and Contracts TIGERISH WATERS - July 11, 2017 ... manifestation of what happens in most relationships between consenting adults that are looking for love. There is no love to be found in contracts. Love is essentially a covenant. This is because God's love is covenant and God is love. It is a promise that cannot be broken and is not dependent on the behaviour of the other. It is an act of the will, it is never an overbearing burden. It is meaningless without God as a transcendent third making Himself manifest through the covenant. Because it ...http://tigerishwaters.blogspot.com/2017/07/covenants-games-and-contracts.html

Fr. Hardon on the Precious Blood FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - July 1, 2017 ... begin to unravel in order to understand something of the depth of meaning behind those two simple words, Precious Blood. Peter begins by reminding the faithful to remember the hardest thing in this life for us is to remain mindful of the truths of faith. Because what we believe on God's revealed Word is twice removed from the common experience that we have in this world. What we believe is first of all not immediately perceptible to the senses. Moreover, what we believe is not ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2010/07/fr-hardon-on-precious-blood.html

"I'm With Them." A FRIAR'S LIFE - July 1, 2017 ... about what it means to be a worthy follower of Him. I just finished a wonderful vacation relaxing by the beach in Hampton, NH, and this gave me a chance to catch up on some things. Among them, I really enjoy an podcast called "On Being" which interviews a variety of people on issues of faith each week. One of the most stunning episodes that I listened to was with Martin Sheen, the well-known actor of such films as Apocalypse Now and of course for seven years, he was President Jeb Bartlett on ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2017/07/im-with-them.html

Jun 29 - The Martyrdom of Sts. Peter and Paul FATHER BILL'S BLOG - June 29, 2017 ... Presence for the sustenance of the spiritual lives of those living in the world – who call themselves his disciples. This, until the time, foreordained by his Father for him to come again as Judge! And beyond that, Jesus was now a potential friend of all men and women – due to the merits of his own Suffering, Death and Resurrection. These actions established friendship once again between God and mankind; and so he wanted a way to continue that relationship of ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2017/06/jun-29-martyrdom-of-sts-peter-and-paul.html

In simple English, it means, "Bear your crosses and at the end, you shall be rewarded." Those who deny their crosses, they shall be disowned by the Lord. Today's First Reading from the Book of Jeremiah [Jer. 20:10-3] recalls an event that took place in the days of the Old Testament. In those days, the Lord God had called the great prophet Jeremiah as His spokesman to warn the ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2017/06/homily_25.html

Personal Transparency Is Difficult CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - June 24, 2017 ... what is happening. They consider themselves persons of great ability, and successful and want to gain approval from others. Self-promotion is not unique to Korea. The SNS network, is an ideal platform for this self adulation. As a small country with an excellent communication network the young are quick to see aberrations in society. This can be seen also in the way efforts are made to get certain 'specs' in order to succeed in society as if the college and the departments they attend will be ...http://catholicamericaneyesinkorea.blogspot.com/2017/06/personal-transparency-is-difficult.html

English Benedictines in the Sacrament of the Present Moment MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - June 24, 2017 ... the mendicant orders, lay people living outside the cloister like St Catherine of Sienna and St Rose of Lima, lay contemplatives and anchorites only too ready to profess that they weren't monks or nuns, like Richard Rolle and the author of Piers Ploughman in England, all showed that you didn't have to live in a monastery to seek God and live a life of contemplation. Recent authors have even doubted the common belief that Dame Julian of Norwich was a Benedictine nun and have ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2017/06/such-m-ixed-bag-as-english-benedictine.html

Life After Alpha: Corpus Christi 2017 HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - June 18, 2017 ... question: why are you at Mass today? It's a personal question, and everyone will have a different answer. But I suggest that our answers will relate to one or more of these three things: Behaving, Belonging, or Believing. Some folks come to Mass for what's called "fire insurance." They want to stay clear of hell, so they take seriously the Christian obligation of Sunday worship. They're behaving. Others aren't so worried about the next life. They come to Mass because they feel part of a ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2017/06/life-after-alpha-corpus-christi-2017.html
