This past summer we released 2 CDs which contain this song. Children's Rosary groups around the world have begun singing this song as they finish their Rosary. There is a wonderful appreciation for the role of music in our relationship with Our Lord.

Most Pastoral of Popes FR RAY BLAKE'S BLOG - November 19, 2014 Sacraments I am sure are supposed to be life changing events, rather than a simple reward for turning up. From very early on until that old modernist Pope St Pius X changed things - those people who are anxious about Francis would have been apoplectic about Pio. He not merely changing the Apostolic order of the sacraments - Confirmation after Communion - but wanting to introduce not merely frequent but even daily Communion. Communion not just for Holy monks and hermits who ...http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/2014/11/most-interfering-of-popes.html

Purgatory, 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A FATHER DYLAN'S SERMONS - November 15, 2014 ... middle-class Western lifestyle that will continue past death with no awkward realities like 'judgement' getting in the way. But the simple truth is that I will die. And I will be judged. And it is the prayers of the living that will assist me in receiving mercy in that judgment. This is what the Jews of our Lord's own time believed (2 Macc 12:42-45). This what the early Christians believed, so we find St Paul praying for a dead man called Onesiphorus that "the ...http://fatherdylanjames.blogspot.com/2014/11/purgatory-33rd-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - November 10, 2014 ... cheesy dip as an appetizer with assorted veggies, chips and crackers, store bought cake, and lots of alcohol. I mean, that's a winning menu right there, folks. ;-) When I host things, I get all neurotic, so I like to keep things as simple as possible. That way I can just flit around and assure that everyone has enough to eat and drink without *also* worrying about setting the oven aflame or otherwise poisoning everyone accidentally. Before everyone arrived, ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/11/birthday-party-frivolity-and-priesthood.html

Designing a Church for the Poor CRISIS MAGAZINE - November 10, 2014 ... beautiful images of holy men and women who overcame their sinfulness to draw close to God. Even more important, a church for the poor shows the poor their mother who comforts and their God who forgives. A church for the poor is full of signs, symbols, and sacraments: outward signs of inward grace. It cannot be a place where the sacrament of salvation is hidden away, for it should be raised up like Christ on the cross offering his body for our healing. A house for the poor should not be a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/yljOCjSTCN0/a-church-for-the-poor

Alrighty Then… RUNS WITH ANGELS . . . LIVES WITH SAINTS! - October 30, 2014 ... within their ranks, and conversion of the non-Mormon is pretty much a given. Of course, I don't think the conversion is anything like becoming a Catholic, where classes are required, and periods of contemplation and discovery, etc. I think the only basic requirement is to be baptized Mormon, then you are eligible for the temple rites. The temple ceremony and "sealing" which occurs in the ceremony is seen as necessary for the attainment of the highest heaven at death, the celestial kingdom. I ...http://runswithangels.wordpress.com/2014/10/29/alrighty-then-2/

15 Tips to Help Your Prayer Life AGGIE CATHOLICS - October 27, 2014 I once asked a class of college students to rate their spiritual lives on a scale of 1 to 10. Most were very hard on themselves and gave themselves a 5 or less. I then asked "how would you describe your relationship with God?" and again, most were not very positive. These were good Catholics. When I asked for clarification as to the reason they were hard on themselves, most of the comments from the class were about difficulties in prayer. ...http://marysaggies.blogspot.com/2012/09/15-tips-to-help-your-prayer-life.html

What Is God Saying? DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - October 24, 2014 Gen 22:1-19 The weekly class assignment includes meditating and contemplating on an assigned Scripture passage each day. The first day this week was the above chapter from Genesis, which tells of God asking Abraham to travel to a place and then to sacrifice to God his only son, Isaac. I read the passage and saw the oft-referenced imagery to God's later sacrificing of His only Son, Jesus. I even noticed the similar use of numbers, the two servants who traveled with Abraham ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2014/10/what-is-god-saying.html

In this short essay we would like to pay tribute to Saint Teresa of Avila and highlight ten of her great contributions to the Catholic Church and to us as a model of holiness, that we are all called to attain.

St. Thérèse of Lisieux: A Powerful Intercessor CATHOLIC FIRE - October 1, 2014 ... list. As I read her love for Jesus and learned of her "Little Way", I couldn't help but admire and desire to emulate this beautiful saint, who expressed so much joy in the midst of suffering. I cheered when this young woman who was my age when she acted with such strong faith and determination and did the forbidden, speaking out when she was told to remain silent, pleading with the Pope to let her enter Carmel. I was fascinated with the poetic way she expressed herself (being a poet myself), ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2014/10/st-therese-of-lisieux-powerful.html

Fr. Longenecker on Wave Walking DA MIHI ANIMAS - September 9, 2014 ... By talking about how the faith has changed you. It is by telling faith stories. It is by sharing the amazing, simple and real experiences of the faith. It is talking about wave walking. Sherry Weddell emphasizes this in her important book Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus . What is a "faith story"? Here's one I shared earlier this week–the story of my visit to a man's deathbed and the transformation in his life as he received the ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/09/fr-longenecker-on-wave-walking.html

MONASTICISM, CLERICALISM & THE PRIESTHOOD OF ALL BELIEVERS by Abbot Nicholas MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - August 25, 2014 ... Christian prayer and practice. But many faithful seemingly do not grasp the importance of the priesthood of all believers, or they lack models for living it. We need not invent new spiritual models to fill this gap. Christian tradition already contains the resources for understanding and living this universal baptismal priesthood. One resource is the monastic tradition. For cultural and historical reasons, monasticism has typically not served as a model for lay spirituality in ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2014/08/monasticism-clericalism-priesthood-of.html
