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

Reflection: Matthew 18: 15-20 THE DOME BLOG - August 13, 2014 Matthew 18: 15-20 (20th Week of Ordinary Time) Today's Gospel reading is extremely challenging! In this reading Jesus tells the apostles that if someone hurts them or sins against them, they should go and talk with that person alone. I wonder, how many of us do this? This is not an easy or comfortable thing to do! My natural tendency can be to "nurse" that wound in my heart rather than talk to the individual. What is your natural response? The thought ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-18-15-20.html

Reflection: Matthew 18:1-5, 10, 12-14 THE DOME BLOG - August 12, 2014 Matthew 18:1-5, 10, 12-14 (20th Week of Ordinary Time) In today's Gospel, Jesus calls a child forth in response to the disciples' question: "Who is the greatest in the kingdom?" As he often does, Jesus does not respond directly to their question. Instead, he calls a child over and tells them that if they want to enter the kingdom of heaven, they must be like this child! Did the disciples understand what Jesus meant? I doubt it! Perhaps we need to ask ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-181-5-10-12-14.html

Reflection: Matthew 14:22-33 THE DOME BLOG - August 10, 2014 Matthew 14:22-33 (20th week of Ordinary Time) Today's reading from the Gospel of Matthew is the story of the apostles being tossed about by a violent storm at sea. The wind was so fierce that the apostles were terrified that their boat would sink and they might even die! When Jesus walked on the water toward them, it seems that they would have been reassured. Instead they became even more afraid. Even when Jesus spoke to them and reassured them that it ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2014/08/reflection-matthew-1422-33.html

Novena to St Dominic 2014 - Day 7 DOMINICAN NUNS IRELAND - August 7, 2014 Today's Gospel forms a very good starting point for my reflection on St Dominic. I have sometimes heard homilies on this passage along the lines of: Peter showed great faith, he stepped out of the boat and started walking towards Jesus. But then he took his eyes off Jesus and instead of being focused on Jesus he started thinking about what he himself was doing and so he began to sink. Dominic was a man of great faith who repeatedly acted ...http://dominicannunsireland.blogspot.com/2014/08/novena-to-st-dominic-2014-day-7.html

Peter ALMOST Walks on Water: Gospel Reflection for Aug. 4 ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - August 4, 2014 Matthew 14:22-36 , Jesus Walks on the Water Put yourself in the scene of today's gospel. Waves are pounding a little wooden fishing boat as a storm rages all around you when suddenly, through the blowing wind and water spray, you see someone or something walking on the water towards you. Quite disconcerting, wouldn't you say? Of course, the disciples think they are seeing a ghost until Jesus quells their fears. Remarkably Peter responds to this wonderous ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2014/08/peter-almost-walks-on-water-gospel.html

Holding on to Anything? HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - August 3, 2014 (Image source: Wikimedia Commons ) [Brief Reflection on Matthew 14:13-21] The little that we have – be it in material goods, time or talents – is sufficient for God's work if, when He asks, we would just give whatever that is to Him. Take notice in today's Gospel what He did with five loaves of bread and two fish! On the surface, it looked like Jesus was asking His Apostles to do the impossible – feed thousands of people. ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2014/08/holding-on-to-anything.html

Sharing Our Loaves and Fishes CREO EN DIOS! - August 3, 2014 The reflection in Give Us This Day for today's Gospel – St. Matthew's account of the feeding of the multitude – comes from Pope John Paul II's Go in Peace . Talking about the millions of people who live in abject poverty in the world, the Pope asks "How can we not open our ears and hearts and start to make available those loaves and fishes that God has put into our hands?" Pope John Paul II writes: If each one of us contributes, ...http://susanjoan.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/sharing-our-loaves-and-fishes/

"Give Them Some Food Yourselves." CATHOLIC LIVING TODAY - July 31, 2014 The miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fish that is mentioned in this Sunday's Readings (18A) for August 3, 2014 is so central to the gospel message that it is one of the few miracles found in all four gospels. It help us recognize the gifts we have been given and the responsibility we have to give them to others. And it offers important food for thought as we debate the immigration dilemma we currently face at our porous borders. Our Discussion Questions will ...http://catholiclivingtoday.blogspot.com/2011/07/give-them-some-food-yourselves.html

On the Fatherhood of Bishops With Disposable Priests THESE STONE WALLS - July 30, 2014 ... happening in the present situation is priests are presumed guilty in claims that are so old that they could never be proven. Priests are presumed guilty without the benefits of civil trials thus allowing lives to be destroyed and dioceses forced into bankruptcy, facilitating and allowing opportunists and greedy lawyers to walk away with millions. Can anyone deny this? What is going on cannot be justified either by the Gospel of the Lord or the Constitution of the United ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheseStoneWalls/~3/k4jY503xplE/
