The Vision of Saint Helena MOUNT CARMEL - August 17, 2017 August 18 is the feast of St. Helena. She is my patron saint and so I would like to pay her tribute even though she is not liturgically mentioned in the current Roman Catholic calendar. There are many versions of St. Helena's story especially her origins. I love her story, her total dedication to Christianity and her legendary reputation of finding the True Cross of Crucifixion. I was delighted to know the significance of this name in my religious life. I ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MountCarmel/~3/iZdv4BbC1bI/vision-of-saint-helena.html

The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven THOMAS FOR TODAY - August 15, 2017 ... preserved from decay. At the end of her earthly life, God brought her to heaven, body and soul. On Calvary, Mary had stood by the cross of Jesus and shared in his sufferings. She shared in his resurrection also, anticipating the resurrection of the body that will occur at the end of the world. As Mary says in today's gospel, "From now on all generations will call me blessed; for the Mighty One has done great things for me" (Lk 1:48-49). Reflection As Christians, we need not ...http://thomasfortoday.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-assumption-of-mary-into-heaven.html

Fr. Perrone: Cultural Impoverishment, Nobility of Soul, and the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - August 15, 2017 ... by way of an odd introduction to our upcoming feast day. The Holy Virgin Mary is the most noble human person ever to have lived (or yet to live) and this in spite of the mean circumstances of her most humble life. Mary is the exemplar of all that is most excellent in our nature. Our Lord sait that the greatest among us would be as the least. No better instance of this than Our Lady. What we will celebrate on August 15 is god's acknowledgement of Her incomparable nobility of ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2017/08/fr-perrone-cultural-impoverishment.html

Memorial of St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe, Priest and Martyr HAPPY CATHOLIC* - August 14, 2017 ... 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/2017/08/memorial-of-st-maximilian-mary-kolbe.html

What Steals Our Joy; And What Restores It (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - August 13, 2017 There's a word for what is happening in all the readings; what is happening for Elijah, for Saint Paul, and for Saint Peter. That word is discouragement. And there is a word for what cures it. And that is joy. In the first reading, Elijah has fled to the mountain because he is discouraged. He tried to spark revival of faith, and the queen seeks to kill him. He feels very alone and overwhelmed. Paul is "in anguish" for his fellow Jews who have resisted ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2017/08/what-steals-our-joy-and-what-restores.html

Will the "Catholic Twitter" Comments Please Stop? JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - August 11, 2017 ... mischief-makers. Using "Catholic Twitter" when you're talking about a tiny number of people isn't nice. Yes, there are some people who love to ruffle feathers and add fuel to the fire but not everyone is like that. Can we please stop these "Catholic Twitter" comments? Don't lump everyone together. If you have a problem with what someone (or a group of people) said, why not address them personally? Furthermore, it seems like we can no longer express our opinions without someone being ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2017/08/will-catholic-twitter-comments-please.html

They received the fulfillment of the ancient longing of every human heart and so Saint Peter desired to remain before the Transfigured face of the Son of God (cf. Matthew 17:4 ). Our heavenly patron, Saint Augustine, recognized this common and universal yearning when he prayed in his Confessions , saying to God, "…you have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in you." ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/FQCYuMx1STY/homily-6-august-2017-feast-of.html

I'm a " mediator " by default and sticking around makes the most sense to me, even when I'm really annoyed with HS-level drama. It also means I'm going to have to seriously push myself out of my "run away from toxic folks online" comfort zone. That doesn't mean I'm going to tolerate what happened over the weekend (I'm going to be using those mute and block buttons more freely) but it ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2017/08/rethinking-twitter.html

St. Alphonsus Liguori FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - August 1, 2017 ... "Mary," says Saint Bonaventure, "has this great privilege, that with her Son she above all the Saints is most powerful to obtain whatever she wills." And why? Precisely for the reason on which we have already touched, and which we shall later on again examine at greater length, because they are the prayers of a mother. And therefore, says Saint Peter Damian, the Blessed Virgin can do whatever she pleases both in heaven and on earth. She is able to raise even ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2009/08/st-alphonsus-liguori.html

Thoughts Determine Our Lives MONASTERY OF THE HOLY CROSS - July 31, 2017 St. Ignatius of Loyola died on this date 561 years ago. He did not set out at first to be a saint, but a soldier. Then Providence intervened. A cannonball shattered his leg, and as he was recovering from this terrible compound fracture, he underwent this remarkable experience: He asked for some of these books [of knight-errantry] to pass the time. But no book of that sort could be found in the house; instead they gave him a life of Christ and a collection ...http://chicagomonk.org/about-us/the-priors-blog/thoughts-determine-our-lives/

If a farmer is to find a great treasure in his field, if a merchant is to find a priceless pearl, or if a fisherman is to haul in a great catch, he must already be about the work of farming, of buying and selling, or of fishing; he cannot simply sit idly by in his house and hope such things come to him. The discovery of such a treasure, of such a pearl, or of such a catch is a gift, yes, but ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/-2UNg_p-9Rc/homily-30-july-2017-seventeenth-sunday.html

The Great Silence GALACTIC CATHOLIC UNIVERSE - July 30, 2017 Robert Cardinal Sarah's book The Power of Silence is like stepping back in time and rereading the profound encyclicals of Pope Saint John Paul II. Words describing the essence of silence include adverbial suffixes like imperceptibly and noiselessly. He says "Silence is not an absence." Thought 12 Turning common place ideas on their head is the work of Jesus Christ.

Our Secular World Needs Christian Personhood CRISIS MAGAZINE - July 27, 2017 " Gloria Dei est vivens homo ." ∼ St. Irenaeus Saint Irenaeus (130-202) wrote that the glory of God is revealed in living human beings; this idea expresses one of the most central ideas of the primitive Church and the period of the Fathers, that of deification or theosis (becoming god-like). This constant theme within the first Christian millennium was most eloquently expressed by Saint Athanasius of Alexandria (ca 298–373) in his writing On ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/6D0URhXXZtk/secular-world-needs-christian-personhood

I loved Saint Magnus The Last Viking , and found it very well written. And her handling of mental illness and especially PTSD in The King's Prey: Saint Dymphna of Ireland was incredible.

Monday Musings - Will We Use Our Ears to Hear? HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - July 24, 2017 Some Catholic theologians, clergy and writers teach that we should have a reasonable hope all men and women will be saved. We should reject this erroneous prediction of our eternal residency. Even a simple man like I can understand that this claim of universal salvation doesn't really pass the smell test. How could it when Jesus Himself told us: "For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:14)? ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2017/07/monday-musings-will-we-use-our-ears-to.html

What's Up With Life Teen Catholic Youth Ministry? CONNECTICUT CATHOLIC CORNER - July 21, 2017 So I'm on Twitter when I see Ryan Fitz retweet a Creaky tweet about Catholic Life Teen Youth Ministry that caught my eye. Something about the Virgin Mary and "poop" to be specific. Be prepared, I'm gonna get all fire and brimstone in this post.
