Do we allow our worldly interests to crash into our devotion and worship? Do we really see God's Church as a house of prayer? Second, Jesus sometimes has to ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-for-8th-week-in-ordinary_25.html

The Holy Spirit Inspires the Church BLOG OF THE DORMITION - May 8, 2016 ... holy mystery, an epiclesis. This isn't a different Spirit, but the same Spirit. There is one Holy Spirit, one God, one faith, one Church. The Holy Spirit gives us the Scripture and he gives us the bishops too. We don't get one without the other. We need them both absolutely. This doesn't mean that bishops are always good and holy. In fact, if we study the history of the ecumenical councils we discover an uncomfortable amount of all-too human politics, rivalries, and intrigues. Despite this, ...http://holydormition.blogspot.com/2016/05/the-holy-spirit-inspires-church.html
