Am I Committing Adultery? DOMINE, DA MIHI HANC AQUAM! - April 7, 2014 ... exercising our own kingship in Christ by showing mercy to those who have sin against us. All good reasons. But focus for a moment on the sin involved in this story: adultery . Here it's obvious that we're talking about marital infidelity of a sexual nature. However, Scripture calls out another sort of adultery, one we usually name "idolatry," that is, the infidelity we live when we worship smaller gods. This last week of Lent is a chance for each one of us to ...http://hancaquam.blogspot.com/2014/04/am-i-committing-adultery.html

They want what happened to Lazarus physically to happen to them spiritually . And it's interesting, the process of getting "untied" from this addiction and set free from it often does require the assistance of others (just like the help of other people was necessary to free Lazarus from his burial cloths). Thankfully, there are good groups of people out there who are ready and able to lend the necessary assistance—groups like Covenant Eyes, which is the one I ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-lesson-of-lazarus-first-we-need-to.html

Anything associated with such research-studies is always rejected by the gay is good lobby. The Spiritual Friendship/Sexual Authenticity group and gay-Christian groups like them, reject the POV that homosexuality is not fixed and change is possible . In fact, all pro-gay groups pretty much reject that notion, as well as research helping people understand the origins or development of same sex attraction in individuals. Hence the censorship of the type we see at work in the reaction ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2014/04/last-night-there-was-meeting-in.html

Happiness: The 11th Commandment CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - April 1, 2014 ... which disposes them to despondency. It was Don Bosco who considered happiness the 11th commandment for children. When children are happy they are spontaneously open to exposing their souls. It is then that the educator is able to convey more than knowledge, joining it with growth in human qualities. Happiness is the driving force that helps children grow to maturity. And very likely we can expect that children who are not happy will become addicted to some false good in life. The writer feels ...http://catholicamericaneyesinkorea.blogspot.com/2014/04/happiness-11th-commandment.html

His conclusions about the ethics of nude art might surprise you. In his affirmation of the beauty, dignity and worth of nude art, he implicates three persons in the ethics: the artist, the model and the viewer, all of whom have a moral responsibility to treat the dignity of the whole person. Each has a responsibility that can be ignored, distorted or abused, turning art into pornography. For John Paul, the ...http://vox-nova.com/2014/04/01/shifting-the-focus-objectification-porn-and-the-longing-for-belonging-a-guest-post-by-leah-perrault/

The Cost of Addiction CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - March 22, 2014 ... Addiction is not a simple problem to deal with. The consequences are an enormous loss to society and one that hurts the church greatly," he laments. "Children are addicted to games, mothers to shopping, cosmetics, fathers to the gambling casinos and to alcohol. Addiction ruins our mental health, nurtures crime, destroys the moral order, in a word, it brings moral depravity and death."

Rolheiser writes Grandiosity is the demon that tells us that we are the center of the universe, that our lives are more important than those of others. Unbridled ...http://susanjoan.wordpress.com/2014/03/22/two-brothers-and-their-demons/

Tolkien said specifically he only set out to write a truly good story, one that would hold its own at length, and delight and move a reader's heart. I wouldn't listen to a dour herald. I wouldn't notice flowers if they weren't decked out like a festival. I get the message of joy through others' attitudes and actions, and then hear their words. Have a good time, give a good time. Have a good time, make good art. And all that is good is of ...http://www.impactingculture.com/2014/03/19/glorifying-life-makes-good-art/

Did you notice the picture posted on the USCCB sites? A woman religious holding a baby. Nice touch. Clearly the war on women religious is in full-scale retreat.

Misery Is a Choice SUFFERING WITH JOY - March 6, 2014 ... to the fact regarding ourselves that it is all about me and how I see myself. Who am I really? Who defines who I am? The answer to that is…well, later. A recently convicted and sentenced prison lifer told his adult daughter that he could understand if the Christians he knew didn't want to have anything to do with him. After all, Christians don't associate with criminals. When she told me that I said, "We are all criminals in the eyes of God because we are all sinners.

" With each 140 character worded tweet (or worse, not even being clever ourselves and simply "retweeting"someone else's thoughts) we're not having debates or discussions - we're growing more and more addicted to feelings of moral superiority over whatever the issue is. That's why extreme "outrage" based shows are as popular as they are. Doesn't matter This was one of the "tamer" illustrations ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2014/02/default-emotion-outrage.html

Yet he spoke clearly from what was in his heart not from a carefully designed or developed philosophy. Rather Paul was the bearer of the wisdom of God. Let me invite you, my friends, to join with me in looking at the strength of persons like Paul, like David, who could see so clearly from his great sin to the light of Yahweh that "shines through the darkness for the upright."

Catholicism Without Charity THAT THE BONES YOU HAVE CRUSHED MAY THRILL - February 6, 2014 ... Bride. It really is not, in my honest opinion, our place to stand in judgment of sinners, especially those who are humble and (to all human appearances) contrite of heart. I do not, for many reasons, consider myself to be in a place to judge those who could well be much very closer to the Heart of Jesus, so full of love for sinners who trust in His Mercy, than myself. It is likely that Paul will not remain sober, but then he lives in the pissing rain outside all the time during the great ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2014/02/catholicism-without-charity.html

These townspeople are like a person who wants to live life without religion. Just make money and spend money and forget God. The see God as just a troubler of their everyday lives. When God comes and visits them, they beg him to leave. They reject their chance at salvation because of their concern for the things of this earth. Then the man who has been freed from the unclean spirits begs Jesus to let him follow as a disciple. Jesus refuses his request. He has ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DailyHomilies/~3/X8PZ9z0y9mk/february-3-2014-monday-of-fourth-week.html
