Reflection: Matthew 14:1-12 THE DOME BLOG - July 30, 2016 Saturday of the 17th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 14:1-12 The primary character in today's Gospel is Herod the tetrarch. Herod had heard many stories about Jesus and he believed that Jesus was John the Baptist raised from the dead. Thus, he believed that Jesus was able to do many amazing deeds! If you remember, it was Herod who had John arrested, put in prison and then put to death. He did this because John had criticized Herod for taking his ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-141-12.html

Thank you, Matt, for reminding us that faith under fire can be forged into something beautiful." — Deacon Greg Kandra , award-winning journalist and multimedia editor of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association "Despair is one of the devil's greatest weapons.

Reflection: Matthew 13:47-53 THE DOME BLOG - July 28, 2016 Thursday of the 17th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:47-53 In today's gospel passage, Jesus tells his disciples that the Kingdom of Heaven is like a net that is thrown into the sea. Naturally the net collects a variety of species of fish and other objects. When the net is full, the men haul it ashore. However, the net typically will collect more than fish, including random objects or species of sea life that were not useful for their purposes. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1347-53.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:44-46 THE DOME BLOG - July 27, 2016 Wednesday of the 17th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:44-46 The Gospel readings for this week use a variety of metaphors and examples for "the Kingdom of Heaven." Today, Jesus says to His disciples: "The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure that the owner had been buried in a field. Now if someone finds this treasure, he or she likely will hide it and then will go and sell all he or she has and buy the field." Jesus then uses a second example of a man who finds a ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1344-46.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:36-43 THE DOME BLOG - July 26, 2016 Tuesday of the 17th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:36-43 In today's Gospel reading, the disciples ask Jesus to explain the parable of the weeds in the field. Jesus tells his disciples that the Son of Man (Jesus) sows only good seed in the fields. The good seeds are "the children of the kingdom and they bear abundant fruit." Then Jesus tells his disciples that the weeds in the field are the children of the Evil One. The enemy who sows the weeds is ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1336-43.html

With his visit to World Youth Day only a few days away, Pope Francis ... LEARNING TO BE QUICK TO LISTEN - July 25, 2016 ... prayer is the primary "work tool in our hands" and that to insist on something with God is not meant to "convince him, but rather to strengthen our faith and our patience, that is, our capacity to fight beside God for the things that are truly important and necessary." "In prayer we are a pair: God and me, fighting together for what is important. Among these, there is one, the great important thing, which Jesus tells us today in the Gospel, but which we hardly ever consider, ...http://listenquickly.blogspot.com/2016/07/with-his-visit-to-world-youth-day-only.html

Carrying About YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - July 24, 2016 ... broken and dead body of Christ. The Eucharist is the metaphysical way we carry the actual Body of Christ from the sanctuary to the streets. These do not give us any some special position power like a King who wears a crown or a general who wears a uniform or a Tour de France winner who wears a yellow jersey. The ways we carry Christ are the gentle reminders for us to bring a little bit of Christ into every broken and earthy place we go, to share a little piece of Christ with every person we ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/07/carrying-about.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:24-30 THE DOME BLOG - July 23, 2016 Saturday of the 16th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:24-30 Today's Gospel begins with Jesus telling His disciples another parable. The parable begins with the words: "The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man who sowed 'good seed' in his field." However, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds in the wheat field. The enemy left deeply satisfied because he had "bested" his enemy. As the crop began to grow, the weeds also grew. ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1324-30.html

Reflection: John 20:1-2, 11-18 THE DOME BLOG - July 22, 2016 Feast of St. Mary Magdalene – John 20:1-2, 11-18 The Gospel reading for this Feast of St. Mary Magdalene is very appropriate. In the time of Jesus, women were not always held in high esteem. Yet, it is clear in John's Gospel that Mary Magdalene was a very dear friend of Jesus. His love, esteem, and affection for her are very evident in this Gospel. Mary Magdalene must have been an intelligent, courageous, and loving woman. In some of ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-john-201-2-11-18.html

Reflection: Matthew 13:10-17 THE DOME BLOG - July 21, 2016 Thursday of the 16th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 13:10-17 This Gospel reading begins with the disciples asking Jesus: "Why do you use parables when you are teaching?" Jesus basically says to them: "The people do not understand as you do. You have been granted the privilege of the knowledge of the mysteries of the Kingdom. This is a wondrous gift you have been given! The people who hunger for God's Word need to be instructed about these mysteries." Then Jesus adds: ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1310-17.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:46-50 THE DOME BLOG - July 19, 2016 Tuesday of the 16th Week of Ordinary Time – Matthew 12:46-50 Today's Gospel may be difficult for us to understand. While Jesus was preaching, his mother and brothers approached the disciples. They told them that they wanted to talk with Jesus. The disciples then went to Jesus and told him that his family had come and they wanted to speak with him. Jesus must have surprised the disciples with his response. He immediately responded: "Who is my mother? ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1246-50.html

16th Sunday in Ordinary Time PRINTED AS PREACHED - July 16, 2016 The image that comes to mind after reading the Gospel which speaks of the two sisters Martha and Mary is that of one who is concerned with the needs of guests and the other who sits at the feet of the Lord listening to his voice. When the Lord told Martha that she was anxious about too many things and her sister Mary had chosen the better part by listening, the Gospel does not share with us how she reacted. If we presumed by the tone of Martha's complaint ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2016/07/16th-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

Reflection: Matthew 12:1-8 THE DOME BLOG - July 15, 2016 Friday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 12:1-8 In today's Gospel, Jesus and his disciples were walking through a field of grain. It was the Sabbath. The disciples were hungry and, without thinking, they began to pick some of the grain and then eat it. There were several Pharisees who saw the disciples do this. They immediately approached Jesus and told him that his disciples' action was unlawful since it was the Sabbath. No work was to be ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-121-8.html

Reflection: Matthew 11:28-30 THE DOME BLOG - July 14, 2016 Thursday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 11:28-30 Today's Gospel is one of my favorite Scripture passages. In this reading Jesus invites all who are weary and burdened to come to Him. He promises us that if we come to Him, He will give us rest, and the rest He gives will renew and restore us. What in your life wearies you? What wears you down or exhausts you? From what (and whom) do you need "rest?" It might be worry about your loved ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1128-30.html

Reflection: Matthew 11:20-24 THE DOME BLOG - July 12, 2016 Tuesday of the 15th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 11:20-24 Today's Gospel is a difficult one to read. Jesus' instruction to his disciples is pretty disturbing. He denounces the cities of Chorazin and Bethsaida for refusing to believe in Him and change their ways despite the wonders they had seen Him work. Jesus tells his disciples that he has not come to bring peace; rather, he has come to bring the sword. He also says that he has come to set a ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-matthew-1120-24.html

Reflection for the 15th Week of Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - July 10, 2016 Monday – Christ First In today's Gospel, Jesus says something positively shocking: "Whoever loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me..." With these words, Jesus is claiming first place in our lives, even above our closest family. And why shouldn't He? Jesus is our God, our Savior, the One Who died for our sins and rose again to open the gates of Heaven for us. With ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-for-15th-week-of-ordinary.html
