New Book's "Sexual Reality" Bursts LGBT Catholic Bubble CRISIS MAGAZINE - June 19, 2017 Writer Dan Mattson has bequeathed a lasting treasure to the Church, a spiritual masterpiece titled Why I Don't Call Myself Gay: How I Reclaimed My Sexual Reality and Found Peace . Might this be over-effusive praise for a book that's only about homosexuality and identity labels? Not quite. That would be like saying St. Augustine's Confessions was merely a book for those who have had a child out of wedlock. In fact, sure, if you experience same-sex ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/NXo-crpKdSg/new-books-sexual-reality-bursts-lgbt-catholic-bubble

Having broken God's Covenant by turning away from His laws, God promised to make a New Covenant with His people.

Two of those gifts would include God putting a new heart and a new (human) spirit within the believers. [Ezek. 11:19-20, 36:26] God also promised to bless His spiritual children with the ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2017/06/homily_18.html

I featured Chris' in studio acoustic and beautifully orchestrated version of Prince's song "Nothing Compares 2 U" as our traditio at the end of April (see "Like a bird without a song" ). Cornell, fronting his original band, Soundgarden, was a leading figure in the so-called "Grunge" scene that emanated from Seattle, his hometown, across the country. There were many great bands and a lot of amazing music put out by other Seattle bands, like Niravana and Pearl Jam, to name just ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/05/dreams-have-never-made-my-bed.html

Those who know him say that throughout his ordeal he has declined to say or write a single word criticizing his bishop or fellow priests in public. The only apparent difference between the MacRae case and three other New Hampshire priests who have been in prison - and the fifty others who have been accused - is that Father Gordon MacRae is the only one who has maintained that the claims against him were a fraud. He is serving a sixty-seven year sentence imposed after he three ...http://araminthethicket.blogspot.com/2011/08/to-azazel-father-gordon-macrae-and.html

I will, however, share what I got out of it in case you're wondering what the end results may be. Despite being a Hibernophile (definition: someone fond of Irish culture, history, language, and all things related to Ireland), I didn't know too much about any of the 3 saints that were featured in the book. I was aware of St. Kevin of Glendalough ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2017/05/what-st-brigid-of-kildare-reminded-me.html

Laying aside the urgent to celebrate the eternal reminds us that all our moments belong to God, helping us being a better steward of our time.

3EA: Holding on to the Certainty of the Resurrection Amidst the Conversations and Debates of Our Lives FATHER DENNIS - May 4, 2017 ... gospel stories of Jesus resurrection make any sense is if, as St. Peter said in the first reading, Jesus was not "abandoned to the depths of the netherworld nor did his flesh see corruption." That's, in some way, what makes the story of the Road to Emmaus so strange. On Easter Sunday, two of Jesus's disciples are walking back to a relatively unknown suburb of Jerusalem called Emmaus, probably after observing the Passover sacrifice and Sabbath rest. They approach an unknown stranger walking in ...http://fatherdennis.blogspot.com/2017/05/3ea-holding-on-to-certainty-of.html

Blessed Abbot Columba Marmion OSB, a favorite spiritual writer of mine, who was beatified in the year 2000 by Pope John Paul II, tells us that the abyss of our misery calls to the abyss of God's mercy! It is not our perfection to dazzle God who is surrounded by myriads of angels. No, it is our misery, our wretchedness AVOWED ( recognized and proclaimed ) which ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2017/04/apr-23-2nd-sunday-of-easter-divine.html

One Franciscan opened a small window in the church door and asked, "Who wishes to enter?" The pallbearers answered, "Zita, Queen of Bohemia, Dalmatia, Croatia, Slavonia, Galicia. Queen of Jerusalem. Grand Duchess of Tuscany and Cracow." The friar responded, "We know of no one by that name," and closed the window.

Chrism Mass Homily - John McAreavey (Dromore) 2017 CLERICAL WHISPERS - April 14, 2017 ... knowing how to plan and prepare for a future different from the past. Sometimes this means not being able to offer the same number of Masses as in the past and asking parishioners to sacrifice the habits of a lifetime. Which is always painful. We are also being challenged, as clergy, not just to serve our people, but to share ministry with them, to share pastoral responsibility with them and, increasingly, to prepare talented men and women to take on positions of leadership in carrying out the ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/04/chrism-mass-homily-john-mcareavey.html

And the occasional success, to the striver, is worth everything. The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time." That last line is one to wrestle with. Is there any voracious reader who didn't at some point want to be a ...http://backbayview.blogspot.com/2017/04/escapes.html

Raymond Arroyo's Latest Will Wilder Novel CRISIS MAGAZINE - March 8, 2017 If we hope to have a Catholic Literary Revival — the kind for which Dana Gioia called , and which periodicals like Dappled Things and publishers like Wiseblood have been supporting—we need to engage the "tweens." Or, as modern marketing lingo terms them, the "middle-grade" set. If you have been in one of those old-fashioned places called a bookstore recently and have perused the young readers section, you know the dire need for evangelization there.

"Papa" tells Mack: "I didn't think you could handle seeing a father just now." It's not a statement that God is not Father, or has not revealed Himself to us as the "masculine principle" of Father and Son, or that He is some kind of androgynous, amorphous Being. Mini-spoiler: Eventually, He will appear to Mack as Father (Graham Greene!) at a stage ...http://hellburns.blogspot.com/2017/03/movies-shack.html
