Fr. Jozo: Your Only Enemy Is the One Who Can Separate You From the Altar DA MIHI ANIMAS - February 27, 2015 ... we come into the church and celebrate the Holy Mass, that is our embrace, our hanging onto Our Lord and saying, "Lord where would we go, for you are the Word of Life." Where did the martyrs gain so much strenght from? In the Church, where did the witnesses gain their strength from? To date, in this year, 23 missionaries have been murdered around the world in four months. That is a lot. How can a man ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2015/02/fr-jozo-your-only-enemy-is-one-who-can.html

We are nearly ¼ into the Season of Lent and the question we should ask ourselves is – Has my prayer life increased so far this Lent? Am I praying more? Am I committing time for prayer?

St. Polycarp of Smyrna ATONEMENTONLINE - February 22, 2015 ... John the Evangelist. But being part of the second generation of Church leaders had challenges that the first generation had not known. With the apostles gone, heresies sprang up pretending to be true teaching, persecution was strong, and controversies arose. Polycarp, as a holy man and bishop of Smyrna, found there was only one answer -- to be true to the life of Jesus and to imitate that life. As Jesus often responsed strongly to the Pharisees, so Polycarp, when confronted by ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2015/02/st-polycarp-of-smyrna.html

The First of His Last Seven Words THE CONTEMPLATIVE CATHOLIC CONVERT - February 21, 2015 Last year I published essays surrounding all seven of Jesus' last words on the cross. This year I am not only going to post them again, but will also record these essays on YouTube beginning February 22. --------------- The Lord Jesus uttered seven statements as He struggled for life on Golgotha's cross. His first was, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34). The more I think about that statement, the more I am intrigued. ...http://thecontemplativecatholicconvert.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-first-of-his-last-seven-words.html

Ash Wednesday VIEW FROM THE AMBO - February 18, 2015 Lent is a blessed time in the Church year. The season was first experienced by the Catechumens (those who were to be baptized at the Easter Vigil) as that they entered 40 days of intense spiritual preparation before their sacramental entrance into the Church. The time-frame of forty days was not haphazardly chosen, but because of Jesus' own 40 days in the desert, the 40 years of the Hebrews being purified in the desert through their ...http://frtodd.blogspot.com/2015/02/ash-wednesday.html

Ash Wednesday: Lent Begins Καθολικός διάκονος - February 18, 2015 ... fast, give alms in secret and all that ( Matt 6:1-8.16-18 ). I know, God knows, and my spiritual director knows. Among my reasons for disliking this question is not because what I giving up is some great secret, or that I would never tell anyone. Along the way I may well divulge some of what I am doing and not doing for Lent. Primarily it is because these things are means to an end, not ends in themselves. Let's be honest, the reason most people ask others that question is ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/02/ash-wednesday-lent-begins.html

#Ashtag Wednesday THE SCI FI CATHOLIC - February 18, 2015 Ash. Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent in the Western Church. Today, through fasting and prayer, we begin the preparation for the feast of Easter. I, of course, am giving up magical girls for Lent. And don't forget that it's not too late to join the Sci Fi Catholic Lenten Read-a-Thon . We begin with the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, and I'll be posting reflections as we go. Anyway, they say Ash Wednesday and ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheSciFiCatholic/~3/XqnDEnqTQIo/ashtag-wednesday.html

The Word for Lent: Priorities! FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - February 18, 2015 (Ash Wednesday 2015: This homily was given on February 18, 2015 at St. Pius X Church, Westerly, R.I. by Fr. Raymond Suriani. Read Matthew 6: 1-18.) [For the audio version of this homily, click here: Ash Wednesday 2015 ] Every year since 2010 I've asked the Lord to give me a "theme word" for Lent to share with you on Ash Wednesday—a word that can help to focus us and guide us in our Lenten disciplines. ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-word-for-lent-priorities.html

Lent Explained CARING CATHOLIC CONVERT - February 18, 2015 Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, is the day after Mardi Gras begins. It begins with a church service where Christians think about their mortality. They also repent of their sins and return their focus to a loving God. They work at recognizing life for the gift that it is. Many Christians during Lent make certain resolutions or commitments to change their lives over the forty days that are to follow. They may decide to go to daily mass or to give ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CaringCatholicConvert/~3/5TxvVP7Ldtw/lent-explained_18.html

February 18 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - February 18, 2015 Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation! The days of Lent are here, already. Once again we begin a 40 day focal period , which is meant to correspond to the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting and praying in the desert , and being tempted by the Devil, preparing for his public ministry. We would be foolish to think that the Devil is not still around in our day. I think it is pretty obvious in the ungodly acts of violence that ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/02/february-18-homily-for-today.html

A Lenten Calendar for Catholic Children {revised} SHOWER OF ROSES - February 18, 2015 ... their math tutor and the three little ones were all napping (a rare occurrence these days!), to make this year's Lenten Calendar. I used the same documents I created last year , but this year I assembled it a little differently (similar to how I first assembled it back before I was blogging) so that each week could begin with Sunday. Jesus rose from the dead "on the first day of the week." Because it is the "first day," the day of Christ's ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/eojD/~3/3f1W9p8dvGY/a-lenten-calendar-for-catholic-children.html

Feria Quarta Cinerum SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - February 18, 2015 The observance of Lent is the very badge of the Christian warfare. By it we prove ourselves not to be enemies of the cross of Christ. By it we avert the scourges of divine justice. By it we gain strength against the princes of darkness, for it shields us with heavenly help. Should mankind grow remiss in their observance of Lent, it would be a detriment to God's glory, a disgrace to the Catholic religion, and a danger ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2015/02/feria-quarta-cinerum.html

It Isn't All or Nothing: On Dealing With Lenten (and Other) Dissonances VOX NOVA - February 18, 2015 ... on, I found more reasons to support my vegetarianism: land usage and climate change. But once again, I could hardly portray myself as any kind of environmentalist. I was a frequent air traveller. I didn't always recycle. I was consumerist as any other American twenty-something. Once again, I couldn't claim a name for myself without running up against massive contradictions. In today's gospel (Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18), we hear a firm instruction from Jesus: "Be ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/02/18/it-isnt-all-or-nothing-on-dealing-with-lenten-and-other-dissonances/

The Joys of Lent SISTERS OF SAINT BENEDICT'S MONASTERY - February 17, 2015 For many people, Lent isn't their favorite time of year, but I always look forward to it. Some Lents turn out to be more meaningful to me than others, but what I enjoy about each one is that it's a time to simplify, to take stock of what's crept into my life that doesn't need to be there and to find ways to work on removing the things that are barriers between me and God. In fact, Ash Wednesday, which falls tomorrow this year, is one of my favorite days of ...http://stbensisters.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-joys-of-lent.html

On the Coming of Lent SPIRITUAL WOMAN - February 17, 2015 ... just sigh and say "Really? Lent? Already?" It feels like one more thing to add to the to-do list. This year, I definitely fall into that second category. Maybe it's because we're buried in piles of snow, I've been non-stop crazy busy, and the kids (two figuratively; one literally) are bouncing off the walls from being inside too much. Yet, the days are getting longer, the sun is growing stronger, and somewhere under those mounds of snow, my daffodil and tulip ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/SPBgN/~3/Wh0Zv0yCTeU/on-coming-of-lent.html

Shrove Tuesday Roundup Post of Doom SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - February 17, 2015 ... am trying, like so many others, to square the circle of Catholic blogging with holiness in these dreadful Church times. I am not issuing any manifesto for Lent, other than to seek to amplify the positive where it exists, and to avoid the truly needless negative. In no way would I advocate the Pollyanna approach, or Candide's "we live with the best of all possible popes" self-help philosophy. So of course there times when the alarm must be sounded. But I guess ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2015/02/shrove-tuesday-roundup-post-of-doom.html

Kobe Bryant and His Catholic Faith DEFEND US IN BATTLE - February 17, 2015 ... us to the hinge-point in the career of Kobe Bryant: the week he checked into a Colorado hotel room, had sex with a woman who worked there, and was subsequently arrested on a sexual-assault charge. A year later, the charges were dropped and Bryant apologized. But the incident will (obviously) never go away. When Bryant dies, the accusation will probably appear in the second paragraph of his obituary. And he knows this. "I started to consider the mortality of ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DefendUsInBattle/~3/issIa4QGBZg/

Please. Read. This. A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - February 16, 2015 Let's see... I guess it's been a while, even many years, since I went to church on Ash Wednesday to get ashes... How long's it been? Let's see... Yup - it's been a while! Why did I stop going for ashes? Was there a reason? Will I go this year? Why not go this year? Why should I go this year? Why go any year? Why ashes ? Getting ashes doesn't mean I'm holy. As a matter of fact, getting ashes means I'm ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2015/02/please-read-this.html
