Reflection: Luke 13:22-30 THE DOME BLOG - October 29, 2014 30th Week in Ordinary Time – Luke 13:22-30 The Gospel today begins with someone in the crowd asking Jesus if only select people will be "saved." In differing situations, we might hear conversation or homilies about "being saved." Ask yourself: do you worry about "being saved?" If so, what is the source of your anxiety? What does it stem from? Does it come from not being perfect? Or do you worry about some choices you made in the past that were not good for you or for ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1322-30.html

Reflection: Luke 6:12-16 THE DOME BLOG - October 28, 2014 Feast of Saints Simon and Jude–Luke 6:12-16 The Gospel today begins with Jesus going up the mountain to pray. St. Luke writes that Jesus spent the whole night in prayer and meditation. However, when daylight came Jesus called his disciples together. He then chose twelve of them to be his Apostles. Jesus must have known them well. And these men must have known Jesus fairly well. I doubt that it was easy for them to leave their families. Yet they followed their hearts ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-612-16.html

Reflection: Luke 13:10-17 THE DOME BLOG - October 27, 2014 30th Week in Ordinary Time –Luke 13:10-17 Today we have another familiar story. The primary character in this Gospel is a woman who had been crippled and incapacitated for 18 years. She was bent over and she was unable to stand up straight. Her whole world must have been limited by her infirmity. Can you imagine not being able to look into another person's eyes as you were talking with them? Yet her infirmity was only one aspect of this woman. Jesus looked deeply at ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1310-17.html

Reflection: Matthew 22:34-40 THE DOME BLOG - October 26, 2014 30th Week in Ordinary Time –Matthew 22:34-40 The Gospel today is a familiar one. The scene opens with a scholar of the law testing Jesus by asking him: "What commandment is the greatest commandment?" Jesus replies with the "correct" answer: "You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, with all your soul and with all your mind," and "you shall love your neighbor as yourself." If we were asked this question, it is likely we would give the "correct" answer. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-matthew-2234-40.html

Before You Go to Mass Today, Read This SERVANT AND STEWARD - October 26, 2014 Given the Gospel of the day , today seems a fitting time to share one of my favorite passages from Benedict XVI's first encyclical letter, Deus caritas est ( God is love ): Here we need to consider yet another aspect: this sacramental "mysticism" is social in character, for in sacramental communion I become one with the Lord, like all the other communicants. As Saint Paul says, "Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread" ( ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/6p3Uzr2D5c0/before-you-go-to-mass-today-read-this.html

Reflection on Today's Gospel, Sunday, October 26, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - October 26, 2014 Readings for Sunday, October 26, 2014 Those doggone Pharisees were testing Jesus again. As always, Jesus had the perfect answer to put them in their place. I realize that this may not be a really popular view with many in the world today, but I believe that the order in which Jesus gave the two "greatest commandments" is significant – something that many working for "social justice" these days sometimes forget. Our good works must flow from a deep and sincere love of God FIRST. If ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/10/26/reflection-on-todays-gospel-sunday-october-26-2014/

Don't Put Your Iphone in a Microwave FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - October 26, 2014 ... discussion with the young lawyer. When we love God and love others as ourselves, we fulfill the 613 laws established. The problem comes when we realize we can't do it. Our sin nature gets in the way no matter how hard we try to be good. But the point is – we have to at least try – we have to at least be desiring that, moving in that direction. For us to fulfill the law, the commandments, to be good "Catholics" - there's no short cut, there's no "minimum requirements to be ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2014/10/dont-put-your-iphone-in-microwave.html

Reflection: Luke 12:54-59 THE DOME BLOG - October 24, 2014 29th Week in Ordinary Time –Luke 12:54-59 In today's Gospel, Jesus' frustration with the Pharisees comes through loud and clear. He challenges them to think and reflect well and then judge for themselves what seems to be "right." Jesus wants us to work things out among ourselves rather than running to "mom" or "Father" or whoever is the judge we rely on to tell us what is right. Rather than running to someone else, it may be good to consult our own ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1254-59.html

Reflection: Luke 12:49-53 THE DOME BLOG - October 23, 2014 29th Week in Ordinary Time –Luke 12:49-53 Today's Gospel is not an easy one to read. Jesus speaks of "setting the earth on fire" and he wants it to be hot and blazing! He also speaks of the anguish and pain and that he anticipates his "baptism" which lies ahead of him. Jesus speaks of families that will be divided: father against son, mother against daughter, neighbors who are at odds with each other. Too often we experience these divisions in our ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1249-53.html

29th Sunday in Ordinary Time - The Power of the Holy Spirit... LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - October 20, 2014 ... spiritual life. Certainly, I need Scripture as well, but I can always fit that in when I have other quiet time. Given that Anne had woken up yesterday practically having the word "SASSY!" tattooed on her forehead, I knew that the chances of me reflecting on the Gospel message were low. But I was ok with that. I armed myself emotionally for battle and loaded the kids up in the car. :) It's finally turned cold around here, and yesterday featured temperatures that never got out ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/10/29th-sunday-in-ordinary-time-power-of.html

Reflection on Today's Gospel, Sunday, October 19, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - October 19, 2014 Readings for Today Today's gospel is a bit tricky. The Pharisees were trying to trap Jesus as they often did. He was in one of those "darned if He does and darned if He doesn't" situations. Jesus tells them to "give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." At church this morning, our deacon spoke about social justice and the importance of sharing our treasure. Surely that is a good and noble thing, but I don't believe that this is the point ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/reflection-on-todays-gospel-sunday-october-19-2014/

Reflection: Matthew 22:15-21 THE DOME BLOG - October 19, 2014 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 22:15-21 Today's Gospel begins with the Pharisees plotting against Jesus. They ask Jesus if it is lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar. The Pharisees ask the question only because they hope to trap Jesus by his answer. However, Jesus is well aware that they only want to discredit him in the people's eyes. Jesus knew that regardless of how he answered the question, it would be wrong in the mind of the ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-matthew-2215-21.html

Reflection: Luke: 10:1-9 THE DOME BLOG - October 18, 2014 Luke: 10:1-9 – 28th Week of Ordinary Time Today the Church celebrates the feast day of St. Luke, one of the four evangelists. In the Gospel Jesus sends 72 of his disciples out into the towns and villages that he intended to visit. These 72 disciples were to inform the people that he was coming. They were to prepare the way for him. Jesus then gives the disciples instructions for this journey. He tells his disciples to pack lightly for the journey. They should not take ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-101-9.html

But few, if any, were ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/10/taxes-tricks-and-the-roman-coin.html

Reflection: Luke 12:1-7 THE DOME BLOG - October 17, 2014 Luke 12:1-7 – 28th Week of Ordinary Time The Gospel today is a bit sobering. Jesus tells his disciples that everything that is concealed will be revealed. He also tells them that every secret will be made known. For me, this statement is somewhat intimidating and a bit frightening! Immediately after these words, Jesus completely shifts his focus. He tells his disciples that there is no need to fear when someone threatens to harm you. He reminds that God is always ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-121-7.html

PRAYER ON THE HILL - October 17, 2014 Ignatius House St. Matthias Parish Lanham, Maryland Pope Francis' Reflection Sacred Scripture Dear Friends, In today's homily at St. Martha Chapel, Pope Francis, celebrating Mass honoring St. Ignatius of Antioch, a martyr, speaks about the beginning of our heavenly life here on this earth. The "seal of the Holy Spirit" which we receive during the celebration of our own baptism is the "ticket" for us to earn our way into God's heavenly kingdom. It is God's ...http://prayeronthehill.blogspot.com/2014/10/ignatius-house-st.html

Reflection: Luke 11:42-46 THE DOME BLOG - October 15, 2014 Luke 11:42-46 — 28th Week of Ordinary Time The Gospel today opens with Jesus continuing his confrontation of the Pharisees. Jesus is extremely angry with the Pharisees. He accuses them of paying their tithes simply to "look good" rather than acting out of love of God and/or love and concern for their neighbor. Jesus directly confronts them. He is almost brutal with them. Jesus makes it very clear what he thinks of them. Today Jesus also is challenging each of us ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/10/reflection-luke-1142-46.html
