Our Roots Are Showing! ST PATRICK'S CONVENT SCHOOL - August 16, 2017 ... "St Catherine, St Catherine, O lend me thine aid, and grant that I never may die an old maid. A husband, St Catherine, a good one, St Catherine, But arn -a-one better than narn -a-one, St Catherine. Sweet St Catherine, a husband St Catherine, Handsome St Catherine, rich, St Catherine, Soon, St Catherine." I don't suppose this verse would be considered politically correct today but it was the 'arn' and 'narn' that jumped out at me when I read it. We all learned in school that Newfoundland's ...http://stpatricksconventschool.blogspot.com/2017/08/our-roots-are-showing.html

Liturgy and the Totus Christus Καθολικός διάκονος - August 5, 2017 ... participation in the Mass. A dilemma someone posed to me about whether the liturgy is the work of God or work of the people strikes me as utterly misguided. It seems to me a classic false dilemma. If one chooses to impale him/herself on either horn of this dilemma I can't help but see that s/he runs the risk of rendering the liturgy practically meaningless- it would result in a fatal disconnection or dysfunction in one's conception of what is happening, which impacts how one engages at Mass. ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/08/liturgy-and-totus-christus.html

Seek the Treasure -- Mary Will Help (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - July 30, 2017 ... the merchant finally discover the pearl worth having. A lot of us have spent our lives looking for meaning, and we try everything. Nothing really satisfies. The treasure is Jesus himself: knowing him, and being with him. But here's the thing Jesus wanted to make very clear, so he repeated it: you and I don't just pick up the treasure; someone doesn't just give us the pearl. Everything goes on the line. It takes effort and full commitment. We trade in everything else we value. Lots of people ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2017/07/seek-treasure-mary-will-help-sunday.html

An Ecumenical Problem FR RAY BLAKE'S BLOG - July 6, 2017 ... before Confirmation/Chrismation). Though he believe in them, for one has serious problems, though he believes in them in our Western way, with the papal definitions of the Immaculate Conception and Assumption. In this Ecumenical Age I am not sure how to offer convincing arguments I might once have put forward especially as some of our leading Prelates see no distinction between the Catholic faith and any ...http://marymagdalen.blogspot.com/2017/07/an-ecumenical-problem.html

Are We Fit to Receive the Spirit? Do We Cooperate With His Gifts and Grace? KNOW YOUR CATHOLIC FAITH - June 17, 2017 ... St. Basil the Great says the following in his work, On the Holy Spirit. "All that live virtually desire him, as they are watered by his inspiration and assisted toward their proper and natural end. . . He is the source of holiness, an intellectual light for every rational power's discovery of truth, supplying clarity, so to say through himself. . . He fills all things with power, but only those who are worthy participate in him. He is not participated in all at once but shares ...http://knowyourcatholicfaith.blogspot.com/2017/06/are-we-fit-to-receive-spirit-do-we.html

T R I N I T Y Sunday. GLORIA OLIVAE - June 11, 2017 ... saves by teaching man to repent. Upon repentance, man receives grace and with grace, man receives the supernatural virtue of Faith. And the Gospel says that with Faith, man will not die (spiritually) but will have eternal life, i.e. he is already saved though he is still alive on earth. When he dies he avoids condemnation. And what is he supposed to believe? A first truth of the Catholic Church; i.e. that God so loved the world (i.e. man) that he gave his only son. He did not give up a second ...http://odondecastro.blogspot.com/2017_06_01_archive.html#2372920489150894910

Red balloons were tied to the end of each pew; the atmosphere was ... TERESA'S TWO CENTS - June 10, 2017 ... Pentecost, the Acts 2 passage with all those place names and nationalities . But the lector cleverly left off those tricky lines and the reading still made sense. The youth reaffirmed their baptismal covenant and then the pastor called upon all the ordained members of the congregation to come forward to lay hands. I muttered something like, "Well, that's going to be just about everyone " and I wasn't wrong. Cindy's husband remained in the choir box with me even though the others were calling ...http://teresatwocents.blogspot.com/2017/06/red-balloons-were-tied-to-end-of-each.html

The First Outpouring of the Holy Spirit: For Forgiveness FATHER RAY'S 'OTHER' CORNER - June 4, 2017 ... not these days. If you need some proof, just get hold of some statistics on how many confirmed Catholic young people support things like abortion and transgenderism and so-called gay marriage. At this point, I'll bet it's way over 50%. But as important as it is to receive—and use—the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives, there is something even more basic that the Spirit brings to us, which is why Jesus didn't wait until Pentecost to begin pouring out the Spirit ...http://fatherrays.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-first-outpouring-of-spirit-for.html

Renewing Our Part of the Face of the Earth (Pentecost Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - June 4, 2017 ... made me brand new! In the sacrament of confirmation, the bishop says, "Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit." A "seal" is placed on a document, certifying that it is authentic. You and I are sealed with the Holy Spirit – meaning we are authentic ambassadors of Jesus Christ. The seal of the Holy Spirit means you and I are ready. For what? To do what the psalm describes: "renew the face of the earth." (Last night at the Vigil Mass, the readings were different; we ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2017/06/renewing-our-part-of-face-of-earth.html

"One Simple Thing Is All We Really Need" Καθολικός διάκονος - June 3, 2017 ... going, I will 80 the day-after-tomorrow. It's easy to see that Einstein was correct without doing any math. "One Simple Thing" is one of those wonderful 80s songs the meaning of which remains slightly ambiguous. It seems to be about love between two people who want to just be together, excluding everything else, by building a wall "no one else can see." There is a lot of talk these days about "safe spaces." Desiring a "safe space," despite the harsh words of some, is a very understandable ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/06/one-simple-thing-is-all-we-really-need.html

Come Holy Spirit PRINTED AS PREACHED - June 3, 2017 ... for attention to detail in religious devotion. This, of course can be self-motivated. Instead this gift of the Holy Spirit allows us to appreciate closeness to God as a son or daughter of our heavenly Father. It is in places such as a Church building we become aware of our sacred relationships with God and others through what we see and sense around us – that God is not distant. This gift allows us to sense the mysterious presence of God. So we give him his place and trust him more and ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2017/06/el-dia-de-pentecostes-al-termino-de-las.html

The Octave of the Ascension NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - June 1, 2017 The Ascension of the Lord was the confirmation of the Catholic Faith, that we may surely believe in the gift which is yet to come, from that miracle whose effect we have already felt; and that every one of the faithful, having already received such great things, may learn to hope for the things which have been promised, and through those which he knows have already been given, and hold the goodness of God, both past and present, as a pledge ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/PNiH8fHntvI/the-octave-of-ascension.html

Memorial Day- Peace in Jesus Καθολικός διάκονος - May 29, 2017 ... or courage that results from their own noble intentions and resulting brave actions, but the courage that comes from knowing Jesus has conquered the world, including their self-deception, duplicity, and myopia-induced cowardice. Just as the Father is always with and "in" his only begotten Son, Jesus, the Son, desires to always be with his disciples that we might remain "in" him. He remains not just with us, but in us, by means of his Holy Spirit, who empowers us not only to do what Jesus did, ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/05/memorial-day-peace-in-jesus.html
