Dwell in Its Branches YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - July 28, 2014 ... most of us are on our own. The parables used by Jesus are stories and allegories that illustrate and compare Christian truths and events of everyday life. The notes to the NAB explain that, "Since a parable is figurative speech that demands reflection for understanding, only those who are prepared to explore its meaning can come to know it. To understand is a gift of God, granted to the disciples but not to the crowds. In Semitic fashion, both the disciples' understanding and the crowd's ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2014/07/dwell-in-its-branches.html

Sunday Reflections REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - July 27, 2014 Jesus tells us in today's Gospel that the Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field which a person finds and hides again and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

Reflection on Today's Readings CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - July 27, 2014 Readings for Sunday, July 27, 2014 When reading the first reading, I was struck by Solomon's unselfishness – his genuine concern for the people in his charge. I thought of a mother's prayers. Most moms are really selfless and spend a good part of their prayer time imploring God's graces and help for their children. On the other hand, sometimes, we treat God like a fairy God father. Gimme this, I wish that… There is a really simple, sweet prayer ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/07/27/reflection-on-todays-readings/

Recognizing the Beauty in the Old and the New LEX ORANDI, LEX CREDENDI - July 27, 2014 The readings which the Church presents to us for the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time give us a rich plethora of interpretations; however, one theme that we can extract from them is the idea of the hermeneutic of continuity, a concept vividly manifested by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI especially in his teachings concerning the liturgy. In the first reading, young King Solomon asks the Lord to bless him with the gift of wisdom so that he can properly govern his ...http://benedictgal-lexorandilexcredendi.blogspot.com/2014/07/recognizing-beauty-in-old-and-new.html

Reflections for Today's Readings, Sunday, July 20, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - July 20, 2014 Today's Readings In the first reading, we learn all about the immensity of God's mercy. My concern in these modern times is that we depend too much on God's mercy. God is merciful when we are repentant – key word – repentant . In today's world, it seems as though wrong has been made right and sin just doesn't exist in the minds of so many. It is presumptuous – to say the least – that God will overlook all of our shortcomings and even "in your ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/07/20/reflections-for-todays-readings-sunday-july-20-2014/

The Message: Undiluted (16.A) HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - July 20, 2014 ... that the Kingdom of God is growing despite every obstacle. Neither Satan nor human sinfulness can stop it.
