Reflection: John 19:25-27 THE DOME BLOG - September 15, 2014 ... in Ordinary Time – John 19:25-27 Today is the feast of "Our Lady of Sorrows." This devotion to Mary dates from the 14th century. The Gospel today depicts Mary standing at the foot of the cross watching her son die a horrible death. How many parents and family members have stood "at the foot of the cross" watching someone they love die? Watching, waiting, knowing what the end will be but faithfully staying with the one they love, journeying with them to end! Mary went ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-john-1925-27.html

Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows during Monday morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, with a reflection on how Mary learned, obeyed and suffered at the foot of the Cross. The Holy Father said that in the liturgy of the day first we are shown the glorious Cross, then the meek ​​and humble Mother.

Reflection: John 3:13-17 THE DOME BLOG - September 14, 2014 Sunday of the 24th Week in Ordinary Time – John 3:13-17 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus talking with Nicodemus. Jesus is giving Nicodemus a preview of what is to come in his life. Just as in the desert Moses lifted up a serpent, Jesus also will be lifted up so that we may have eternal life! Jesus is speaking of his passion and death that is to come. Jesus had a sense of what would come but Nicodemus and his disciples did not have any idea what he ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-john-313-17.html

The Exaltation of the Holy Cross HEART FOR GOD - September 14, 2014 ... the Scripture texts for today is worthy of book-length reflection, but perhaps it's best to make three basic points . The Numbers story illustrates the nature of sin: Sin is a poisonous snake always ready to bite, and its venom means death (apart from intervention beyond anything we are able to do for ourselves). [1] If you are "playing with sin" today––any kind of sin––you are risking eternal death . The Epistle and the Gospel tell us ...http://heartforgodltd.blogspot.com/2014/09/the-exaltation-of-holy-cross.html

Becoming Holy Καθολικός διάκονος - September 14, 2014 In my reflection on today's readings I mentioned the three-fold movement of salvation: redemption, justification, and sanctification. Today I was directed to a post on a blog I had not read in far too long: Glory to God for All Things , by Fr. Stephen Freeman, an Orthodox priest. His post "Christianity in a Plain Brown Wrapper" is what drew my attention this afternoon. In this post Fr Stephen seeks to correct an imbalance that has persisted among Western ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/09/becoming-holy.html

Reflection: Luke 6:43-49 THE DOME BLOG - September 13, 2014 Saturday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time- Luke 6:43-49 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus talking about trees and the quality of fruit they bear. Jesus clearly says that each tree is known by the fruit it produces. Jesus takes this image one step further. He says that each of us also is known by the fruit that we bear! When I reflect on this statement, it makes me wonder what type of fruit am I bearing? Am I producing good fruit, rotten fruit or fruit that ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-643-49.html

Reflection: Luke 6:39-42 THE DOME BLOG - September 12, 2014 Friday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 6:39-42 In today's Gospel, Jesus continues his teaching and formation of the apostles. Today Jesus is inviting us to become aware of how quickly we may jump to judgment of another person. At times, judgment of another person comes so automatically that we may not even consciously recognize it. Jesus may simply want us to be aware of what is going on in our minds. Once we are aware, then we have a choice about ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-639-42.html

Reflection: Luke 6:27-38 THE DOME BLOG - September 11, 2014 Thursday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 6:27-38 The Gospel for today is a difficult one to hear. It is even more difficult to live out in our day to day lives. Today Jesus says to his followers, to us: "Love your enemies! Be kind, be good to those who hate or persecute you!" What is your instinctual response to Jesus' words? These words of Jesus are very familiar to us. We have heard these words numerous times. I assume that all of us at some point in our lives ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-627-38.html

Reflection: Luke 6:20-26 THE DOME BLOG - September 10, 2014 Wednesday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time – Luke 6:20-26 The message in today's Gospel is one that most of us do not want to hear. The first words in this passage are: Jesus says, "To you I say 'love your enemies.' However, Jesus does not stop there. He also tells the crowds that they should "bless the people who wronged them and pray for the ones who treated them badly." Jesus goes even further and tells them they should "offer the other cheek." ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-620-26.html

Reflection: Luke 6:12-19 THE DOME BLOG - September 9, 2014 Tuesday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 6:12-19 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus going up the mountain to pray. He spent the whole night in prayer. It is immediately after this time of deep solitude and prayer that he calls the twelve apostles. It is at this point Jesus begins to preach, to teach and to heal. However, the word about Jesus must have already spread. The people of the area must have known that there was something very unusual about ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-612-19.html

The Spirit was so strong in her that she immediately rose in haste to go and serve.

"Jesus teaches us that if my Christian brother wrongs me or offends me, I must be charitable towards him and, first of all, speak to him personally, explaining that what he has said or done is not good. And what if my brother does ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/09/angelus-steps-of-fraternal-correction.html

Twenty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time LIVING SCRIPTURE - September 7, 2014 ... horrors of violence and war and tremendous inhumanity. Some of us who are reading this reflection may be in the midst of this terrible violence. Others of us just read about it, but feel real pain at the suffering we read or see on the news. God summons Ezekiel to be a prophet – to try to change the behavior of the people. So much does God want Ezekiel to take on this mission of transforming the hearts of the people, God even says God will hold Ezekiel responsible for ...http://livingscripture.wordpress.com/2014/09/07/twenty-third-sunday-in-ordinary-time-2/

Reflection: Luke 18:15-20 THE DOME BLOG - September 7, 2014 Sunday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time – Luke 18:15-20 The Gospel for today is a difficult passage to swallow. Jesus is telling the disciples: "If your brother or sister sins against you, go and talk with him/ her first." When someone "sins against us," typically the last thing we want to do is to go and talk with them! We may want to yell at them but to have a true "heart to heart" conversation is not easy to do. What is your first reaction when someone "sins ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-1815-20.html

Reflection: Luke 6:1-5 THE DOME BLOG - September 6, 2014 Saturday of the 22nd Week in Ordinary Time – Luke 6:1-5 In today's Gospel, the Pharisees continue to find fault with Jesus. The criticism this time is that Jesus' disciples are picking grain from the fields and then having the audacity to eat it on the Sabbath! This was breaking the law in their eyes of the Pharisees. However, I don't think Jesus would have been able to do anything right in the minds of the Pharisees! They were continually harassing ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-luke-61-5.html

We are a small parish, but with some effort Sam could limit our contact, or maybe simply find another parish to go to. Either would be easier than that confronting me. It also seems hard to imagine that, if his initial efforts failed, Sam would then bring in other parishioners to help settle the dispute. What business is it of theirs? No need to air such dirty laundry in front of others; it might prove to be embarrassing. Even if Sam asked, they ...http://homileticdiakonia.blogspot.com/2014/09/twenty-third-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

Blessed Are Those Who Mourn! JOURNEY TO WISDOM - September 6, 2014 A Reflection on Ezekiel 33:7-9 N.A.B. By: Larry T 7 You, son of man, I have appointed watchman for the house of Israel; when you hear me say anything, you shall warn them for me. 8 If I tell the wicked man that he shall surely die, and you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked man from his way, he [the wicked man] shall die for his guilt, but I will hold you responsible for his death. 9 But if you warn the wicked man, trying to turn him from his way, and he refuses to ...http://journeytowisdom-ocbs.blogspot.com/2014/09/blessed-are-those-who-mourn.html
