Reflection: Matthew 17:9a, 10-13 THE DOME BLOG - December 10, 2016 Saturday of the Second Week of Advent - Matthew 17:9a, 10-13 Elijah, the prophet, is the central character in today's first reading as well as in the Gospel. The reading from the Book of Sirach describes Elijah as a man who was bigger than life. He would be a great character for an adventure movie. The reading from Sirach also says that Elijah's words "flamed like a furnace." What a powerful image! He also brought down fire to the earth and did many ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/12/reflection-matthew-179a-10-13.html

The Holy Spirit REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - December 9, 2016 ... of Mary's reactions is comforting to me. Her conversation is real, full of confusion and doubt. If I'm being honest, these are feelings I can have toward God as well. In these moments, Mary's example teaches us to bring all of our thoughts to God. Presenting my best self in prayer means presenting my real self. Only after expressing her emotions and asking her questions did Mary come to a place of total trust and peace. This process is what ultimately leads her to a deeper level of clarity of ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-holy-spirit.html

Reflection: Luke 1:26-38 THE DOME BLOG - December 8, 2016 Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception - Luke 1:26-38 This Gospel from Luke is one that is a very familiar to us. It is the story of the angel's appearance to Mary and revelation to her that she would conceive and bear a Son. Every time I hear or read this Gospel, I wonder how Mary reacted to the angel's appearance and even more so, how she reacted to the angel's announcement that Mary would have a child?

Reflection: Matthew 11:28-30 THE DOME BLOG - December 7, 2016 Wednesday of the Second Week of Advent - Matthew 11:28-30 This Gospel is one of my favorite Scripture passages. In this reading Jesus invites all who are weary and burdened to come to Him. Jesus promises that if we come to Him, He will give us rest. And the rest He gives will renew and restore us. Ask yourself: What in your life wearies you? What wears you down or exhausts you? From what do you need rest? It might be worry about your loved ones, health concerns, ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/12/reflection-matthew-1128-30.html

Reflection: Matthew 18:12-14 THE DOME BLOG - December 6, 2016 Tuesday of the Second Week of Advent - Matthew 18:12-14 The Gospel reading for today is extremely short: only three verses. Yet Jesus has a powerful message in these verses. Today's Gospel is the parable of the man who has 100 sheep that he is tending. One of the sheep wanders off. Despite the fact that the shepherd was tending 100 sheep, he instinctively knew that one of his sheep was missing. He was determined to find it and bring it back ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/12/reflection-matthew-1812-14.html

Reflection: Luke 5:17-26 THE DOME BLOG - December 5, 2016 ... keep? Jesus then speaks about the serious offenses, such as: "Do not murder." I suspect that most of us will never murder another person. However, all of us at times have made comments about a family member, a friend or a stranger that may have been demeaning, critical or degrading of this individual. Sad to say, many of us humans do this every day! Jesus then uses another example: "If you bring your gift to the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has anything against you, ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/12/reflection-luke-517-26.html

Reflection: Matthew 3:1-12 THE DOME BLOG - December 4, 2016 Second Sunday of Advent - Matthew 3:1-12 The main character in today's Gospel is John the Baptist. As we know, John was Jesus' cousin; however he also was a prophet. As John traveled through the desert, he proclaimed: "Reform your lives! The reign of God is at hand"! It was of John that the prophet Isaiah said: "A herald's voice in the desert: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his path'".

First Friday in Advent REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - December 2, 2016 ... "Son of David, have pity on us!" When Jesus goes into the house the blind men approached him and Jesus asks them, "Do you believe that I can do this?" They answer, "Yes, Lord." So then Jesus touched their eyes and said, "Let it be done for you according to your faith." And the Gospel tells us that their eyes were opened. When I beg Jesus for something, do I have the faith that He can and will do what I ask? The reflection for today in "Give Us This Day" talks ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2016/12/first-friday-in-advent.html

Once again, Jesus is preaching about the Kingdom of heaven. He tells his listeners that any person who attends to His words and then acts on them will build their house on the foundation of rock. We all know that there is a clear difference between hearing and listening. Hearing is much simpler than listening. When I hear the other person, I literally hear their ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/12/reflection-matthew-721-24-27.html

Reflection: Matthew 4:18-22 THE DOME BLOG - November 30, 2016 Feast of St. Andrew - Matthew 4:18-22 In this Gospel reading, Jesus calls his first disciples. These men were brothers: Simon, who also was called Peter, and his brother, Andrew. Jesus was walking along the Sea of Galilee when he first saw the brothers. They were casting their fishing net into the sea. Fishing was their profession and their livelihood. Jesus said to them: "Come and follow me, and I will make you fishers of (women and) men." Immediately, the brothers put ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/11/reflection-matthew-418-22.html

Feast of Saint Andrew, Apostle BIG C CATHOLICS - November 29, 2016 ... fascinates today's Christians. Could it really be true that Jesus could just walk along and expect these four men to abandon their families and careers? From all that is found in the Gospels, it seems so. They were overwhelmed by the aura and power of Christ. They had no choice but to follow Him; they knew it in the depths of their hearts and souls. Following Jesus wholeheartedly was not unique to these four apostles; you and I are called in much the same way. Leaving ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2016/11/feast-of-saint-andrew-apostle.html

Reflection: Matthew 24:37-44 THE DOME BLOG - November 27, 2016 The First Sunday of Advent - Matthew 24:37-44 Today's Gospel tells the story of what happened in the time of Noah.

Reflection: Luke 17:11-19 THE DOME BLOG - November 24, 2016 Thanksgiving Day - Luke 17:11-19 The Gospel for today is the story of Jesus healing the ten lepers. Stop for a moment and put yourself in the shoes of those lepers. They must have heard stories about Jesus and his power to heal. They stood at a distance and cried out to him. They begged him to take pity on them and to heal them. Their disease made them outcasts in the society of that time. They must have longed to be healed and to be able to return to their families, ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/11/reflection-luke-1711-19.html

Reflection: Luke 21:5-11 THE DOME BLOG - November 22, 2016 Tuesday of the 34th Week in Ordinary Time - Luke 21:5-11 Today's Gospel begins with people commenting on the adornments of the temple and votive offerings.

Naturally, his disciples said: "When will ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/11/reflection-luke-215-11.html
