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/

Even Now I Know CREO EN DIOS! - July 29, 2014 ... But she doesn't stop there, adding, "even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you." And when Jesus asks if she believes that he is the resurrection and the life, that anyone who lives and believes in him will never die, Martha affirms, "Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world." This is Martha's shining moment. She demonstrates enormous faith, even as she is mourning her brother's death. We don't know ...http://susanjoan.wordpress.com/2014/07/29/even-now-i-know/

(Luke 10: 38-42) Martha let her work get in the way of her relationship with Jesus. Mary on the other hand, sat at Jesus' feet and listened to him. Mary had learned the essence of prayer, sitting at the Lord's feet. Mary wasn't worried about "doing" for Jesus. She wanted to "be" with him. Fr. Jacque Philippe writes about prayer and "being" with God in this way: Faithfulness to prayer is ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/YVVY/~3/yUA6ruVEI-A/mary-tv-daily-reflection-7292014.html

Dwell in Its Branches YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - July 28, 2014 ... The fact that Jesus uses many different stories means that heaven is not one-dimensional. In fact, the Kingdom of God has many dimensions and each parable illustrates a different attribute of life. Our understanding is enhanced as we add each allusion to our understanding of life. Action Some of the parables continue to hold meaning today. A pearl of great price in ancient Palestine is understood the same way today because we still value a string of pearls or pearl earrings. However, we mostly ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2014/07/dwell-in-its-branches.html

Reflection on Today's Readings CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - July 27, 2014 ... Are we willing to give up all of these earthly trappings and luxuries – to live in communion with our Pearl of Great Price, or are we too caught up in the trappings? Do we rightfully, fully appreciate the gift of our redemption, or is that something we plan to think about when we get older and (seemingly) closer to our death? What if we don't grow old? If we don't walk with the Lord throughout our whole life, what will we be missing? Lastly, I thought of something totally random. Pearl ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/07/27/reflection-on-todays-readings/

For this reason we follow him and in our grief we come here to this mountain that he might teach us, that he might comfort us, that he might give us peace. Jesus sets before us today the characteristics of one who seeks to follow him and so share in his glory. All who follow Christ are called to conform their lives to his, to share not only in his death but also in his Resurrection. We see in the Beatitudes the example of Jesus, for it was he who became ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/VWvEQwC3Si8/homily-funeral-for-jeanne-marie.html

However, we do not rely on our own strength in this matter. In our weakness and our frailty we rely on the grace of God. My grace is made perfect in weakness, He told St. Paul at one time. So let's not be discouraged by failure, let's not be discouraged by sin. We fall. It happens. Again Jesus says, "My grace is sufficient for you." Coming down from Mt. Krizevac was treacherous. I felt very vulnerable, and a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/YVVY/~3/lP--XW3ZELI/mary-tv-daily-reflection-7172014.html

Fifteenth Wednesday in Ordinary Time – Our Lady of Mount Carmel LIVING SCRIPTURE - July 15, 2014 ... living Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam ("For the Greater Glory of God"). Even Jesus, the single human being who has the greatest right to boast, hands the glory and praise to his Father in Heaven, as demonstrated in today's Gospel. How would each of our professions change if we were to actually give God the praise for each success? When a nurse or family thanks me for helping a patient I should respond with a, "Praise God! He certainly has blessed her!" shouldn't I? ...http://livingscripture.wordpress.com/2014/07/16/fifteenth-wednesday-in-ordinary-time-our-lady-of-mount-carmel/

Reflection for Sunday's Gospel, July 13, 2014 CATHOLIC WORKING MOM - July 13, 2014 Readings for Sunday, July 13, 2014 As a gardener, today's gospel – the parable of the seed – speaks to me. I view this parable from two standpoints – one of the seed sower and one of the soil, receiving the seed. In my job as a teacher, and in my interactions with people out in the world, I try to be that seed planter – someone who tries to live and to teach the messages of the gospel. It is sometimes hard to accept ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/07/13/reflection-for-sundays-gospel-july-13-2014/

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time HOMILETIC DIAKONIA - July 12, 2014 ... people: those who think that there are two kinds of people and those who know better. In today's Gospel, Jesus is at a point where he has been preaching for some time. Some have listened to him and others have reacted with hostility; so we might be tempted to think that with regard to Jesus and his message there are two kinds of people: those who are for him and those who are against him. But Jesus knows better, and in his parable of the sower he prompts us to ...http://homileticdiakonia.blogspot.com/2014/07/fifteenth-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

This reflection takes its cue from today's Gospel in a reference to the Holy Spirit: Do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say. You will be given at that moment what you are to say. For it will not be you who speak but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. (Mt 10: 16-23) The Holy Spirit speaks through us, just as he spoke through Christ when he delivered his Sermon on ...http://livingscripture.wordpress.com/2014/07/11/fourteenth-friday-in-ordinary-time/

Break Up for Yourselves a New Field YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - July 8, 2014 ... driven in large part, not by love of neighbor but by the accumulation of wealth, consumerism, and ever-increasing consumption of goods and leisure. The gap between the "haves" and the "have not's" of our society - the poor, the sick, the elderly, the chronically unemployed, the handicapped, the immigrants, and other marginalized groups continues to grow. As Pope Francis says "….we have put money at the center, the god of money.

The God of the Battle TEN THOUSAND PLACES - July 7, 2014 ... that God is scornfully looking at all the parties to the conflict and telling them all to knock it off, like an exasperated dad on a long road trip to his squabbling children. That is not the picture given in this psalm, nor in the psalms in general. We have here a God who is party to the conflict, who is right down on the battlefield with us, taking sides and taking names. What are we to make of this? If we pray this psalm with full hearts and voices, are we back in this kind of mentality, ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-god-of-battle.html

Where Does This Teaching Come From? A Reflection on Matthew 11:25-30 ... JOURNEY TO WISDOM - July 5, 2014 Where Does This Teaching Come From? A Reflection on Matthew 11:25-30 N.A.B. By: Larry T Scene at a recent Scripture study class: The instructor said, "The Catholic Church recognizes that Holy Scripture can have four senses of meaning: the literal sense, the allegorical or mystical sense, the anagogical or future sense especially concerning end-times, and the tropological or moral sense." A hand shot up in the front row, "Can you give us an example?" "Sure. Boniface Ramsey ...http://journeytowisdom-ocbs.blogspot.com/2014/07/wheredoes-this-teaching-come-from_5.html
