It takes a long time to accept the fact the God the Father through His Son Jesus nourishes, strengthens, and guides our way through all of life's challenges. Within human limit we are given grace.

After that he held a medal of Mary Help of Christians, in front of her and asked, "For the glory of God and the Blessed Virgin, tell me what I'm holding in my hand."

Fairest Daughter of the Father: On the Solemnity of the Assumption INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - August 15, 2015 ... sisters of Jesus. 1) Mary teaches us how to love the Omnipotent One as we ought. Again, Mary is fully human. She is of the same "stuff" as we. Hence, we implore her powerful intercession in learning how to love the Holy Trinity as she does, our weaknesses notwithstanding. 2) The Father has a plan for our lives that we are to yield to immediately if we wish to be content. Imagine what Mary would have missed had she refused the Lord's tender mercy? He summoned her to become Jesus' ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2015/08/fairest-daughter-of-the-father-on-the-solemnity-of-the-assumption.html

Memorial of St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe, Priest and Martyr HAPPY CATHOLIC* - August 14, 2015 ... The immensity of it: I, the condemned, am to live and someone else willingly and voluntarily offers his life for me - a stranger. Is this some dream? I was put back into my place without having had time to say anything to Maximilian Kolbe. I was saved. And I owe to him the fact that I could tell you all this. The news quickly spread all round the camp. It was the first and the last time that such an incident happened in the whole history of Auschwitz. For a long time I felt ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2015/08/memorial-of-st-maximilian-mary-kolbe.html

Moreover, it is important to reaffirm that popular religiosity, even if not always evident, naturally culminates in the celebration of the Liturgy towards which it should ideally be oriented. I have made brief mention, at a few points in my ongoing catechesis on the liturgy, of the connection of the rosary with the liturgy. In my previous post, I indicated that the rosary is not, strictly speaking, part of the liturgy. It is a popular devotion.

Father Michael Gaitley's powerful book, You Did It to Me: A Practical Guide to Mercy in Action (Marian Press 2014) begins with a dire portent from the Gospel of Matthew about the nature and effect, not only of works of mercy, but of the self-sabotage of our souls by their absence from our lives: "You Did It to Me.' 'You Did Not Do It to Me.' One day, one great and terrible day, one of these two ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/JEJZMrrYpps/

Some turning points offer hope for the future—graduation, a new job, reconnecting with a friend; others cut deeply—personal failure, pink-slips, illness, death of dear ones and acquaintances.

Monday, August 10, 2015 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - August 8, 2015 Memorial of Saint Lawrence, deacon and martyr (II Corinthians 9:6-10; John12:24-26) The stories about St. Lawrence are so fascinating that one may forget about the sacrifice he made. It is well known how he defied the emperor by presenting the poor of Rome as the jewels of the Church. Also, perhaps more famous, is the anecdote of how he ridiculed death itself by telling his executioner that he was grilled enough on one side and should be turned over. No doubt, however, ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2015/08/monday-august-10-2015.html

Any prayers which are a bit long are distasteful to him. This soul is so full of whatever it has just been doing or what it is going to do next, its boredom is so great, that this poor unfortunate thing is almost in agony.

You Are What You Eat (revisited) HEART FOR GOD - August 2, 2015 ... man will give to you . We are surrounded with voices clamoring for "the food which perishes", but how do we find "the food which endures to eternal life"? Jesus gives several facets of the answer. First, "This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent." This is not mere mental assent. This is not taking "Jesus" from our shelf of options when it's convenient (or when life is inconvenient and we are forced to admit that we need help). ...http://heartforgodltd.blogspot.com/2015/08/you-are-what-you-eat-revisited.html

Saint Alphonsus Liguori COMMUNIO - August 1, 2015 Today, the Church honors the memory of Saint Alphonsus Liguori. The particular clarity of our Pontiff emeritus Benedict XVI gives a brief primer on the saint; he draws us to the essential. Let's consider what he says.
