Saint Josephine Bakhita COMMUNIO - February 8, 2016 I posted this text last year but I thought it was so good that I'd do it again…. Pope Benedict XVI in his encyclical on Hope, Spes Salvi gave Saint Josephine Bakhita as an oustanding example of one who discovered Christian hope. 3. Yet at this point a question arises: in what does this hope consist which, as hope, is "redemption"? The essence of the answer is given in the phrase from the Letter to ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2016/02/saint-josephine-bakhita-3/

Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time PRINTED AS PREACHED - February 6, 2016 ... courageous, Christ is with us, not only in the valley of darkness, but also when we must enter into the storm. Remember, Christ can walk on the water, and so can we, as long as we keep Christ always in view, and never despair. And this brings us to the example of St. Peter the fisherman. Peter was reluctant to change his ways. He had a system of fishing that was, for him, predictable and well rehearsed. But, we also discover through the reading of the New Testament Scriptures, that we was not ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2016/02/fifth-sunday-in-ordinary-time_6.html

Not Being Loved on Valentine's Day ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - February 5, 2016 ... dreaded holidays for the divorced and separated, maybe more so for Christians who understand the meaning of Valentine's Day and what Saint Valentine, a man who strove to bring Love to the world, would have wanted his special day to mean. Today we associate Valentine's Day with cards and candy hearts, bouquets and lingerie. We say we celebrate the Love we have for a significant other by giving them overpriced, obligatory flowers and oversized teddy bears advertised with sexual ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2016/02/not-being-loved-on-valentines-day.html

New Video From the Benedictine Monks of St. Bernard Abbey NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - February 4, 2016 ... their monastic life within a hermeneutic of continuity.[1] The video shows them, among other things, using real chant books (they do most of their office in English plainchant, following the psalter of the Rule of St. Benedict), using incense and better vestments than one might find elsewhere, giving communion on the tongue, and other ROTR-type things. (One might say: "This should all be non-negotiable!," but anyone who has visited Benedictine monasteries knows that it's far ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/2HT-csiJiUw/new-video-from-benedictine-monks-of-st.html

So here's my list of sanity savers this winter... 1) Future plans.

Saint of the Day: Angela Merici DA MIHI ANIMAS - January 27, 2016 ... returned from a trip to the Holy Land. On the way there she had fallen ill and become blind. Nevertheless, she insisted on continuing her pilgrimage and toured the holy sites with the devotion of her heart rather than her eyes. On the way back she had recovered her sight. But this must have been a reminder to her not to shut her eyes to the needs she saw around her, not to shut her heart to God's call. All around her hometown she saw poor girls with no education and no hope. ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2016/01/saint-of-day-angela-merici.html

St. Thomas Aquinas, Angelic Doctor ATONEMENTONLINE - January 27, 2016 ... hope that he would choose to become a Benedictine there, and eventually become abbot. In 1239 he was sent to Naples to complete his studies. It was here that he was first attracted to philosophy of Aristotle, and he saw how that philosophy could be used in the service of Catholic theology. Thomas abandoned his family's plans for him and he joined the Dominicans, much to his mother's dismay. In fact, she ordered one of her other sons to capture Thomas away from the Dominicans, ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2016/01/st-thomas-aquinas-angelic-doctor.html

Weekend Wrap-Up LIFE IN A SMALL TOWN - January 25, 2016 ... anyone shows up. I hope people do come, because I've got some great motivational apps to share with them. Anyway... I got laundry done, finished a book (and started another), and watched a couple of movies. A friend from church let me borrow a book about the man behind the Our Lady of Victory Basilica just outside of Buffalo, NY. Very interesting. It was amazing how everything kept working out for him. Father Nelson Baker is in the first of three steps to become a ...http://mary-lifeinasmalltown.blogspot.com/2016/01/weekend-wrap-up.html

Saint Agnes COMMUNIO - January 21, 2016 Saint Jerome spoke these words in a sermon for today's feast: "This is a virgin's birthday; let us follow the example of her chastity. It is a martyr's birthday; let us offer sacrifices; it is the birthday of holy Agnes: let men be filled with wonder, little ones with hope, married women with awe, and the unmarried with emulation. It seems to me that this child, holy beyond her years and courageous beyond human nature, receives the name of Agnes [Greek: ...http://communio.stblogs.org/index.php/2016/01/saint-agnes-5/

He Cures YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - January 21, 2016 Memorial of Saint Agnes, Virgin and Martyr By Beth DeCristofaro Illustration of Luke 9:2 Terri Scott [i] When David and Saul approached (on David's return after slaying the Philistine),…The women played and sang: "Saul has slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands." Saul was very angry and resentful of the song, for he thought: "They give David ten thousands, but only thousands to me. All that remains for him is the kingship." And from that day on, Saul was ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/01/he-cures.html

GETTING TO THE POINT - January 21, 2016 ... have people who may not be quite so easy to love, who had quite a few rough edges along with the holiness (see above, Jerome). Saints for everyone, and saints who are on the roll but largely forgotten in their particulars. That's OK, too—they live in the presence of God, so they probably don't care too much if we're paying them any attention. The whole lot of them enrich our faith life so profoundly. They are, for one thing, the most interesting people in the ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2016/01/they-dont-usually-drink-beer-but.html

A priest, during confession, told me I needed to find Hope in all of this. I needed to trust. There were those words again. Trust. Hope. It was during this time too, that we found out we were having a girl. We had always wanted to name a girl Elizabeth after Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist. But , for some reason, when I thought of the name, it was not followed with a resounding "yes!" in my mind and heart.

When the Dead Go Home to God CRISIS MAGAZINE - January 11, 2016 ... house of the self, there is this strange reluctance on the part of some to move out. And it really hasn't got anything to do with a lack of piety, as if only the truly holy could be said to exhibit an honest haste in shaking off this mortal coil. Sanctity is not an excuse for opting out of the human condition. All of us, saint and sinner alike, are constrained to face the contradiction found at the heart of the human condition, which is the inescapable tension between eros and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/JlyRjgXAA0I/when-the-dead-go-home-to-god

Infinite Mercy, Even After Death? GOD IN ALL THINGS - January 11, 2016 ... operate this way as well. I desire not to soften the reality of sin and evil, but to raise some questions that don't tend enter the Catholic imagination enough. Justice Let's first start with God's understanding of justice. Justice, in our human understanding, is a balancing of the scales. Some may picture God as a bookkeeper, keeping mark of your sins, and the eternal consequence is proportional to your sin. Others might imagine heaven guarded by pearly gates where St Peter interrogates you ...http://godinallthings.com/2016/01/11/infinite-mercy-even-after-death/
