Feeding on the Word of God - Joy! OUR EMMAUS WALK - April 19, 2014 ... the Holy Father is that joy comes from the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ . The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ joy is constantly born anew. (1, Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis) The Gospel , radiant with the glory of Christ's cross, constantly invites us to rejoice . A few examples will suffice. "Rejoice!" is the angel's greeting to Mary ( ...http://ouremmauswalk.blogspot.com/2014/04/feeding-on-word-of-god-joy.html

Lazarus' Tomb CRUSADER MAXIMUS - April 16, 2014 ... given us many Gospel themes ripe for contemplation: Jesus in the desert, the Transfiguration, the Samaritan woman at the well; but no story more captured me or brought more fruit to my personal prayer life this Lent then the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the tomb. Since we have moved into our new chapel, I have found myself arriving earlier for Compline than I did before. I enjoy sitting in the dark in silent prayer. Last week as I sat in the darkened ...http://crusadermaximus.tumblr.com/post/82945639060

Lent's Almost Over and I'm Still Not a Nice Person. Thank You, Lord!  - April 14, 2014 I came to a realization over the weekend. Lent's almost over and I'm still not as nice of a person as I'd like to be. I still spend way too much time thinking about myself and way too little time trying to serve others. What went wrong? Was my Lent a failure? Is there any hope for me? After spending some time in prayer, I received a comforting answer. First, I now know that I need to work on getting to know Christ better. The fact that I can be ...http://www.followingthetruth.com/lents-almost-over-and-im-still-not-a-nice-person-thank-you-lord/

Father Brown and the Mystery of Lent CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 10, 2014 Lent is a detective story. It is the detective story in which the soul is investigator, victim, and culprit all at once. Out of the entire year, it is during Lent that the Church demands that we confess our sins, and confession requires a full inquiry. This is just one aspect of the call to penance that marks the whole season. We are also told to be converted to God with all our heart, and to show our repentance in fasting, weeping, and mourning (Joel ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/1TnWaeKI3J0/father-brown-and-the-mystery-of-lent

Lenten Reflection for Sunday, April 6 AGGIE CATHOLICS - April 6, 2014 April 6, 2014 THE FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT Ezekiel 37:12-14 * Romans 8:8-11 * John 11:1-45 Our readings appear to focus on faith, death, and rising from the dead. One of the themes is that if we abide in Christ and keep faithful to God's commandments, we too will be raised from the dead to a new life in Christ, body and soul. This is foreshadowed by the prophet Ezekiel is his vision of the dry bones in our first reading, and then fulfilled by Christ in the ...http://marysaggies.blogspot.com/2014/04/lenten-reflection-for-sunday-april-6_6.html

Holy Week Activities – Part 2 EYESONHEAVEN - March 31, 2014 ... toward the Sacred Triduum – Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. The last days we have to delve into our Lenten themes before breaking out the joy (and candy?!) of Easter! I don't know about all of you, but even though these are the most intense days of Lent, they are also the ones hardest for me to stay focused on because Easter is so close and distracting! It's a good thing that while Lent comes to a close, Easter never truly ...http://eyesonheaven.net/2014/03/31/holy-week-activities-part-2/

Year a Fourth Sunday of Lent Καθολικός διάκονος - March 30, 2014 ... which makes it an event that changes everything! Encountering Jesus Christ is what allows us to engage reality according to all the factors that make it up. The most fundamental fact of my life and yours is that God loves us, or, another way of putting it: God loves you and there's nothing you can do about it. In an article on Lent, written a number of years ago, our own Owen Cummings cited an Ash Wednesday sermon delivered by Fr. Harry Williams: It is a pity that we think of ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/03/year-fourth-sunday-of-lent.html

Striking the Balance With Noah IMPACTING CULTURE BLOG - March 30, 2014 ... God here is that of a heavy-handed, unreasonable dictator who punishes acts of charity. You can mess with a lot of details when you take on Biblical stories, but don't mess with the nature of God. That's the most crucial detail to get right, and a lot of Christians (including myself) felt uncomfortable with a depiction that likened our God to an angry Zeus. (I also think this is where a lot of the "blasphemous" labeling comes from) (2) Plot wise, their position in the story is confusing. They ...http://www.impactingculture.com/2014/03/30/striking-balance-noah/

Fourth Sunday in Lent IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - March 26, 2014 Fourth Sunday in Lent March 30, 2014 1 Samuel 16:1, 6-7, 10-13; Psalm 23; Ephesians 5:8-14; John 9:1-41 Seeing as God sees. We would all like this gift because we would know God's will more clearly and we would not be troubled by the decisions we make on our own. Life would be much simpler if we only had the clarity of knowing what God wants for us. If we can see as God sees, we can love as God loves; yet somehow the insights of God remain obscure for much of humanity. ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2014/03/fourth-sunday-in-lent.html
