Reflection: Matthew 6:31-34 THE DOME BLOG - September 1, 2014 Matthew 6:31-34 (Monday of the 22nd Week in Ordinary Time) Today's Gospel begins with the words: "Do not worry." "Worry" is something that we human beings do all the time. We worry about the "big" things and rightly so. However, we often worry about the "little" things in life. Life would be so much better if we didn't have so much to "worry" about! It is true that at times in our lives we do have significant difficulties or problems that we are ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/09/reflection-matthew-631-34.html

We Need the Pope to Know How to Suffer, a Reflection on the Sunday Gospel THE NEW THEOLOGICAL MOVEMENT - August 28, 2014 ... generally state that the Lord directs the apostles to his coming sufferings, so as to lessen the scandal they will endure in seeing his bitter passion. For, having received Peter's confession that he is the Christ and Son of God, it was needful that our Savior should also affirm his true humanity in which he would suffer and so overcome both sin and death. (cf. Catena Aurea of St Thomas Aquinas) However, had St. Peter not confessed the truth of our Lord's divinity, and united the apostles in ...http://newtheologicalmovement.blogspot.com/2014/08/we-need-pope-to-know-how-to-suffer.html

Reflection: Matthew: 23:13-26 THE DOME BLOG - August 26, 2014 Tuesday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew: 23:13-26 The Gospel for today is the "woe to you" Gospel. In this reading, Jesus is berating the Scribes and Pharisees for being hypocrites! Jesus doesn't get angry very often but when he does, he has good cause and his anger is justified. Jesus is telling the Pharisees to "get their own houses" in order rather than "judging" what other people are doing. I assume that we also don't like it when ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-2313-26.html

Chosen: Help Me Understand the Gospel of Matthew ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - August 25, 2014 I Choose You. Every Monday, I post a reflection on the previous day's Gospel reading often seeing ways those readings speak directly to those suffering from marital difficulties, abandonment, divorce, abuse, or similar tragedies. I believe God has given me a gift in the way I see things through my experiences and in His power to overcome them. But today, I struggle with the Gospel of Matthew. The Gospel of Matthew Chapter ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/08/chosen-help-me-understand-gospel-of.html

Reflection: Matthew 23:13-22 THE DOME BLOG - August 25, 2014 Monday of 21st Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 23:13-22 Today's Gospel is really a "downer!" It is the passage where Jesus is berating the scribes and the Pharisees. He is accusing them of being hypocrites. They act holy but often take advantage of those who have so much less than they do! Their actions do not always exemplify what they preach. I would guess that at times, all of us have a "Pharisee" within us! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-2313-22.html

A Woman of Few Words THAT THE BONES YOU HAVE CRUSHED MAY THRILL - August 25, 2014 ... reflection, however, it is possible that the Gospel writers, when dealing with the topic of Our Lady, have deliberately, or have been inspired deliberately, to write very little indeed on Our Lady. The little that is written of her then becomes increasingly more important. In this sense, less is more, because it encourages us to look at what is written, that we may draw out of little, the sea of information that is there, the star of which is Our Lady. With ...http://thatthebonesyouhavecrushedmaythrill.blogspot.com/2014/08/a-woman-of-few-words.html

Reflection: Matthew 16:13-20 THE DOME BLOG - August 24, 2014 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 16:13-20 In this Sunday's Gospel, Jesus asks his disciples: "Who do people say that I am? What are they saying about me?" His disciples told him what they had heard. Some people thought he was John the Baptist, or Elijah, or one of the other prophets! But then Jesus asks them: "who do you say that I am?" Perhaps this is the question that Jesus is asking us today! It can be easy to give a flippant answer or to parrot back what ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-1613-20.html

Homily: Disturbance BUKAS PALAD - August 24, 2014 ... we have entered into friendship with him. Or, whether we are desirous of entering even more. Or, perhaps, why we are standing by, waiting for the right time. Or even, if I am slowly stepping back and away? Wherever we are in our friendship with Jesus, the grace of today's gospel passage is that this question (which we know so well) is giving us another chance to answer: Who do we say that Jesus is in our lives? What is our conviction about Jesus who promises ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2014/08/homily-disturbance.html

Reflection: Matthew 23:1-12 THE DOME BLOG - August 23, 2014 Matthew 23:1-12 In today's Gospel reading, Jesus is warning the crowd and his disciples to choose their mentors wisely. He warns them not to blindly follow those who have authority. We need to look at their actions and choices. Are they "practicing what they preach?" For many of us, it is easy to say what needs to be done. However, it is not easy to practice it day after day! Perhaps we need to periodically ask ourselves: "Are we practicing what we preach?" ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-231-12.html

Peter and the Papacy: A Call to Sacrificial Service Καθολικός διάκονος - August 23, 2014 Our readings today, especially our readings from the Old Testament and from St Matthew's Gospel, give us insight into the nature of the papacy, as originally established by Jesus Christ. Peter is to be a servant of the master like Eliakim, not like Shebna. As such, he is to be a father to the household of faith. As John Martens points out in his excellent reflection on these readings, "Rock-Solid Authority," "We know a fair bit about this time, as the ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2014/08/peter-and-papacy-call-to-sacrificial.html

Book Review: Acts of the Apostles STAGES OF PRAYER - August 21, 2014 ... ago, I read cover to cover the Gospel of Matthew in this same series and it was fantastic. This summer I have spent reading and studying this book from cover to cover. This book is of the same quality. I have learned so much, it is difficult to summarize that learning. I think the most important point I can write about is the author. Fr. Kurz is a professor of Sacred Scripture at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin , he has been teaching there for over 35 years. His ...http://stagesofprayer.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/book-review-acts-of-the-apostles/

Reflection: Matthew 20:1-16 THE DOME BLOG - August 20, 2014 Matthew 20:1-16 Today's Gospel is the story of the landowner who went out at various times of the day to hire laborers to work in his vineyard. He went out not just once, but five times: dawn, 9:00 a.m., noon, 3:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m.. He must have had many fields of grapes to be picked! Perhaps this story is an allegory about how God is with us! If the landowner is a "God" figure, then how frequently does God come looking for us---for you and for me? How ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-201-16.html

Reflection: Matthew 19:16-22 THE DOME BLOG - August 18, 2014 Matthew 19:16-22 (20th Week in Ordinary Time) The Gospel reading for today is the story of the young man who came to Jesus and asked him what he needed to do to "gain eternal life." If we had the chance to see Jesus face-to-face, we, too, might ask him this question! Have we been "good enough" to get into heaven? Is there something else I should be doing? Am I doing the right things? What does it mean to be "good?" I believe the "good" we are to do is not to do ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-1916-22.html

Reflection on Today's Gospel, Sunday, August 17, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - August 17, 2014 Readings for Sunday, August 17, 2014 I remember when (a few years ago) I read this passage from Matthew's gospel to my students for the first time. A few students who were really listening were surprised and perplexed by Jesus' response to the Canaanite woman. Not fully understanding the passage myself, I had to go do some research in order to help them. I understood that the Jews would see this woman as lesser than – or unworthy – because her people were the ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/08/17/reflection-on-todays-gospel-sunday-august-17-2014/

Reflection: Matthew 15:4-23 THE DOME BLOG - August 17, 2014 Matthew 15:4-23 (20th Sunday in Ordinary Time) The Gospel for this Sunday is the story of the woman whose daughter was possessed by a demon. The mother approaches Jesus and asks him to heal her daughter. Her request was simple and respectful. However, Jesus ignored her! She was a woman and a Canaanite. This was a segment of the population that were seen by the Jews as the "lowest of the low." Thus, it was expected that Jesus as a Jew should not even speak to her. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-154-23.html

Reflection: Feast of the Assumption: Luke 1:39-56 THE DOME BLOG - August 15, 2014 Feast of the Assumption: Luke 1:39-56 Today's Gospel is a familiar one. It is the story of Mary going to visit her cousin, Elizabeth. Perhaps Mary had just realized that she was pregnant. Can you imagine finding yourself pregnant when you hadn't even "been" with a man? What must have gone through Mary's mind? How could this have happened? Mary needed someone she could talk with about this news. She needed someone she could trust! Someone who might believe ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-feast-of-assumption-luke-139.html

Reflection: Matthew 18:21-19:1 THE DOME BLOG - August 14, 2014 Matthew 18:21-19:1 (20 th week of Ordinary Time) The theme of forgiveness continues in today's Gospel reading. Peter is not shy! He asks Jesus how many times he "needs" to forgive, how many times he "should" forgive. Only Peter would have the courage to ask Jesus this question! We all think like Peter at times. Do we ask Jesus this very same question? At some point in our lives, all of us have had painful experiences at the hands of another. Forgiving ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-1821-191.html
