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.

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.

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."

Feast Day: St. Thomas, Apostle HAPPY CATHOLIC* - July 3, 2014 I posted this last year and find I cannot improve on the basics it presents for my reflection and celebration of this apostle who spoke so forthrightly and acknowledged Truth as soon as he found it. Thomas has been my companion throughout the last year as I have devoted myself to a private project with him at the center. I have made lamentably little progress yet find that the time has not been completely misspent from a personal point of view. My life is considerably ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2014/07/feast-day-st-thomas-apostle.html

This requires, for most of us, such a radical re-configuration of our whole being inner and outer. Most people are, basically, kind of self-centred. I don't mean that in any nasty or mean-spirited way, and I certainly include myself in the crowd. But we do tend to gravitate around ourselves, ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/07/not-only-is-heaven-for-real-it-is-only.html
