The more a priest is immersed in the Word of God, the more will he be magnetized by the altar and this not only for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice, but also because he finds there in the tabernacle the very Face and Heart that he seeks in opening his Bible and in scrutinizing the sacred page. Eucharistic adoration is not a ...http://vultus.stblogs.org/index.php/2014/11/more-about-lectio-divina/
Night-Walking Demons of My Youth BETTY DUFFY - October 16, 2014 ... moral in this tale is to note that self-love is usually indistinguishable from self-loathing, that they are two sides of the same coin.

But no one ...http://bettyduffy.blogspot.com/2014/10/night-walking-demons-of-my-youth.html

When I set out to write of Saint Thérèse, I was thoroughly intimidated as though my soul were but a tabula rasa – a blank slate – in the presence of pages that spoke volumes, the Story of a Soul , in the Presence of God. I could not write of Saint Thérèse. I had no frame of reference with which to relate to someone whose footprint in this world was so small, yet one whose ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/soAiZGmx6lY/

"It is sad to meet Christians who are watered down, like wine; you cannot tell whether they are Christians or worldly, like watered wine; it is impossible to tell whether it is wine or water. It is sad to ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/09/angelus-danger-of-becoming-watered-down.html

In the name of God, in the name of this suffering people whose cries rise to heaven more loudly each day, I implore you, I beg you, I order you in the name of God: stop the repression. The following day, March 24, Romero celebrated Mass in the chapel of Divine Providence Hospital. Most of those attending were nuns from a nursing order.

Homily Prep August 3 THE MATADOR WORD - July 31, 2014 ... God in solitude. Withdrawal is not the choice to seek God but the fear-driven lack of trust in anyone other than the self. Jesus hears of the violent death of his precursor and kinsman John the Baptist and he "withdraws". He is tempted, just as he was in the desert, and this time to get away from the companionship. As in the desert, Jesus is saved from this temptation to isolate, to withdraw from companionship, by angels - those more needy than he who sought his companionship...he was rescued ...http://thematadorword.blogspot.com/2014/07/homily-prep-august-3.html
