Matthew 18 I HEART MY LIFE: A WORKING MOTHER'S SOAPBOX - March 25, 2015 ... leads them astray will not be tolerated by God. It is our job to guide those people back to God, not to help them continue to fall away. You wouldn't give an alcoholic a beer or someone addicted to porn a magazine of naked pictures. Just as our children trust in us, we must also trust in God. And we must show the "little ones" how trusting in God is better than the alternative. I don't always feel worthy of the task because there are days I feel like I am falling. But I trust in Jesus, and I ...http://aworkingmotherssoapbox.blogspot.com/2015/03/matthew-18.html

One short but powerful suggestion: The Word of God! The Word of God is powerful like a two-edged sword that separates bone from marrow. The daily reading of the Word of God in prayerful meditation can result in the conversion of the mind. One more step: memorize Sacred Scripture!

Just because we exist doesn't mean God created us to serve you and give you our money EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU ASK OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE TO YOU. YOUR COLLECTIVE SOLICITATIONS AND UNWILLINGNESS TO TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER ARE ABUSIVE AND STIFLING AND WE ARE ALL ON INFORMATION OVERLOAD.

Is Smoking Dope a Sin? ABBEY ROADS - February 20, 2015 ... it. Would I take a hit if offered? I don't think so. So anyway... The conversation about marijuana use is important and needful - especially since it is fast becoming legal for medical use as well as recreational use. The thing about dope today is that it is so much more potent than it was way back when it was always and everywhere illegal - and therefore immoral for recreational use. Today it is very much more potent - or so I'm told. One hit (puff, drag, toke on a joint) just might equal a ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2015/02/is-smoking-dope-sin.html

Never again can the couple not have been married, the woman not have been a mother, or the man not have been a priest. Everything is different from that point forward. Or think of Confession: our sins are erased in much less time than it takes to commit them! In one sense, then, change is very fast, even instantaneous. But living it out? Now that's a different story. So the question is: once we receive the grace to get serious about ...http://venerablematttalbotresourcecenter.blogspot.com/2015/02/lenten-lessons-from-venerable-matt_19.html

Selfied to Death SPIKE IS BEST - January 2, 2015 ... being, as lived out in all its aspects, must be defined by their sins? A sort of yeah, you may be the Taj Mahal, but you're just the background to our selfie on the moral-societal plane. Again, this is spiritual. When we say "spiritual" we do not mean "airy-fairy". Rather the opposite: that which underpins our very life, our breath, our everyday ordinary life, and bears an imperceptible influence, like a clear conversation going on beneath the noise. This dull deadness of mortal ...http://spikeisbest.blogspot.com/2015/01/selfied-to-death.html

This joy is not the happiness of winning a million dollars which eventually will be spent and exhausted. It is the joy of being presented in marriage (the joy of a bridegroom adorned with a diadem, the joy of a bride bedecked with her jewels) – this is the joy of knowing that I am loved, the joy of knowing that I belong to someone. I am loved not just by anyone. I am loved by someone who is great, one whose ...http://senseofthesacred.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-joy-of-belonging-to-lord.html

Advent and Intentional Healing DA MIHI ANIMAS - December 10, 2014 ... examine your conscience, are there areas in your life where you feel stuck in habitual sin? Human nature is fallen but we are not helpless. Fallen man is self-centered; we orbit around ourselves instead of around God; and in this state we are in "enemy" territory. Satan is the Tempter (1 Thes. 3-5); and as he originated the fall of man, so he still directly influences us to reject grace and commit sin. This is his ordinary mode of action (1 John 3:8-10). The ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-and-intentional-healing.html

If God Didn't Exist, What Would You Do? SHAMELESS POPERY - December 8, 2014 Antonello da Messina, Mary of the Annunciation (detail) (1475) If you could "get away with" any sin or sins that you wanted, what would you do? That is, imagine that God could somehow be distracted, that you didn't have to worry about sin offending Him or being punished. Or alternatively, imagine that God didn't exist: what would you do? You don't have to tell me, obviously, but I want you to think about these questions seriously. Because while I don't need ...http://catholicdefense.blogspot.com/2014/12/if-god-didnt-exist-what-would-you-do.html

Sr. Miriam James Heidland, a member of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, has experienced a great deal in her nearly forty years of life. Adopted as an infant, she felt abandoned by her birth parents. A victim of sexual abuse, she kept silent and felt shamed, turning to alcohol to ease the pain. In college, she lived a life of drinking, parties, and men, until a kind priest reached out to her.

Signs of the Times: Exorcists, Pornography, Alienated Youth and the Immaculate Conception MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - December 7, 2014 Father Eduard Perrone, " A Pastor's Descant " [temporary URL] (Assumption Grotto News, December 7, 2014): As if the addiction itself were not bad enough, there are, according to a bonafide exorcist, some pornography sites that have had a curse put on them, to the effect that those who view them become inextricably addicted to them. This is somewhat reminiscent of the alleged practice of some of the more perverse rock - and - roll groups whose musical albums have had ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2014/12/signs-of-times-exorcists-pornography.html

However, the article may provide some benefit to Catholic readers by giving them more reason to celebrate the Immaculate Conception. Today's feast highlights Jesus' coming to free humanity of sin.

We get sleepy earlier and tend to think the day ends sooner. The busy-ness and anxieties of life, and our own sins, can equally make us drowsy to the Lord's coming. Advent urges us that the darker it becomes, the more eager we are to keep vigil, to stay awake, to look for the Lord's coming and for a light that shatters the darkness. In Advent we admit that when the Lord came into our world at the darkest hour of the ...http://frmitchel.blogspot.com/2014/11/homily-1st-sunday-of-advent-b-30.html
