Feast Day: St. Thomas, Apostle HAPPY CATHOLIC* - July 3, 2015 I posted this in years past 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 couple of years 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 ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2015/07/feast-day-st-thomas-apostle.html

Reflection: Matthew 8:23-27 THE DOME BLOG - June 30, 2015 Thirteenth Tuesday in Ordinary Time: Matthew 8:23-27 Today's Gospel is a familiar story. It is the story of the storm at sea. As we know, Jesus' disciples became very frightened when a severe storm came up. Despite the fact that several of the disciples were experienced fishermen, the disciples were terrified. The storm was ferocious and waves were beginning to swamp their boat. And unbelievably, Jesus remained sound asleep in the boat while the storm raged ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-823-27.html

Church As Institution CATHOLIC AMERICAN EYES IN KOREA - June 29, 2015 ... fence, repugnant to many in our society. We speak about the universality of Church-- why do we need a fence? We are Christians, is the answer given in the meditation, but can believe and proclaim what is not Christian. In the world in which we live there are many elements that threaten the Christian life. Not a few in the Church who are zealously active and use the Scriptures as their witness, propose teachings that can't coexist with the teachings of Jesus. Often not realizing this is the ...http://catholicamericaneyesinkorea.blogspot.com/2015/06/church-as-institution.html

Mary TV Daily Reflection 6/29/2015 IN GOD'S COMPANY 2 - June 29, 2015 ... "Rory, please, please stop that!" And as we were walking into the church yard, I said, "Stop what?" And he said, "You know what you are doing. Please stop it. It's embarrassing." And I said, "Seany, I don't know what you are talking about." And he said, "Rory, stop smiling at everyone." It was true, the joy was so deep in my heart when I came back. But you can imagine as the weeks and months went on, I began to wonder about the calling from Medjugorje. Was it really true, was it this woman's ...http://ingodscompany2.blogspot.com/2015/06/mary-tv-daily-reflection-6292015.html

Reflection: Mark 5:21-43 THE DOME BLOG - June 28, 2015 Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Mark 5:21-43 Today's Gospel includes two accounts of Jesus' healing powers. The first story tells of a synagogue official who was desperate. His daughter was seriously ill and close to death. The official begs Jesus to come and heal her. Jesus did not hesitate. Immediately, Jesus went with the official to his house. However, in the crowd around Jesus, there was another person who also longed to be healed. It was a woman ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-mark-521-43.html

Our Need to Touch Jesus Καθολικός διάκονος - June 27, 2015 Readings: Wis 1:13-15.2:23-24; Ps 30:2.4-6.11-13; 2 Cor 8:7.9.13-15; Mark 5:21-43 Since this is a written reflection on the readings for the Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time and not a homily I am going to deliver from the ambo, I am going to do a lectio divina -like exercise. I will choose a sentence or phrase from each of the three readings as well as from our Psalm and then attempt a synthesis: "For God formed us to be imperishable; the image of his own nature he made us" ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/06/our-need-to-touch-jesus.html

Reflection: Matthew 8:1-4 THE DOME BLOG - June 26, 2015 12th Friday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 8:1-4 In today's Gospel, Jesus comes down from the mountain. As always, a great crowd followed him. A leper approached Jesus. He paid Jesus homage and then said: "Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean!" Apparently, the leper had heard of the miracles and cures that Jesus had done. Without any hesitation, Jesus responded to the leper's request. He reached out his hand and gently touched the man and said: "I will ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-81-4.html

Reflection: Matthew 7:21-29 THE DOME BLOG - June 25, 2015 ... if Jesus is at our side, we will be able to withstand any storm, flood or disaster. However, if Jesus is not our "rock," our inner house will be washed away! It simply will not withstand a fierce storm. Is Jesus truly your "rock?" Is he the one you depend on every single day, even in small matters? I hope so! It is trusting Jesus in the small matters that enables us to trust him when we are caught in a hurricane or tornado! Today, examine the foundation of your house, your life. What/who is ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-721-29.html

Naturally the Gospel reading is the story of John's birth and naming. Elizabeth had longed for a child for many years. However, it was not to be. Now at an older age, Elizabeth and Zechariah finally received a great gift from God: the gift of their son, John.

Reflection: Matthew 7:6, 12-14 THE DOME BLOG - June 23, 2015 12th Tuesday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 7:6, 12-14 In today's Gospel, Jesus uses an image that most of us may never have used in our lives. Jesus tells his disciples, "Do not give to dogs what is holy. And do not throw your pearls before swine." Jesus cautions his disciples that "the dogs and swine" may turn on you and perhaps they even may tear you to pieces. Jesus then moves into a more positive message. He instructs his disciples to treat others ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-76-12-14.html

"The Road That Leads to Life" CHILDREN'S ROSARY - June 23, 2015 ... This was a portion of the Gospel reading from Mass today. In reflection I began to think of of the mothers I have seen in crowded places with their children. I have seen mom's tie something around their children with a string to make sure they do not stray or get lost. These type of cords are now sold and seem to be most frequently used for very little children who can walk but would not know their way without their mother or father. I then began to think of ...http://childrensrosary.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-road-that-leads-to-life.html

Pearls Before Swine. ABBEY ROADS - June 23, 2015 Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine - lest they trample them underfoot and turn and tear you to pieces... Today's Gospel. Every time I hear that I think of writers - and now, with instant publishing on a blog - bloggers. We often write our deepest, most sacred thoughts - be they camouflaged by parody and humor, or blatantly expressed with pathos. Of course our thoughts aren't always holy - but they are deeply personal and if ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2015/06/pearls-before-swine.html

A Feminist Theologian on Her Dad: A Modern Day Levi GOD IN ALL THINGS - June 21, 2015 Mary Magdalene by Piero di Cosimo For those of you who are not familiar with the Gospel of Mary, it is an apocryphal Gospel from which we get the story of Mary Magdalene repeating what was spoken to her by Jesus. Not unlike some contexts today, her authority was met with suspicion, and she was ridiculed. Andrew said, "I at least do not believe the Savior said this. For certainly these teachings are strange ideas." Then Peter said, "Did Jesus speak with a ...http://godinallthings.com/2015/06/21/a-feminist-theologian-on-her-dad-a-modern-day-levi/

Reflection: Mark 4:35-41 THE DOME BLOG - June 21, 2015 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Mark 4:35-41 In the opening scene of today's Gospel, evening is drawing near. Jesus tells his disciples: "Let's cross over to the other side of the sea." There were several other boats with them. As they were crossing the sea, a violent storm arose. Waves were breaking and the boat was beginning to fill with water. Despite the violence of the storm, Jesus was asleep in the stern. However, his disciples were becoming ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-mark-435-41.html

Reflection: Matthew 6:24-34 THE DOME BLOG - June 20, 2015 11th Saturday in Ordinary Time – Matthew 6:24-34 Matthew's Gospel today begins with a very strong statement: "No one can serve two masters." Now, take a moment and calculate how many masters you strive to serve in one day's time. How many masters do you have? Who and what are your masters? Note: a master does not have to be human. It may be helpful to write down who and what your masters are. A master can be anything or anyone. Today cell phones seem to be the master ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-624-34.html

He teaches them the simple yet profound prayer: the Our ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2015/06/reflection-matthew-67-15.html

Growing Old Grace-Fully (Sunday 11B) HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - June 17, 2015 ... faith is a very sensible thing. In today's second reading, St. Paul talks about the attitude a Christian should have to the passing years. While we are on earth, we need to keep one foot in heaven: "While we are in the body, we are away from the Lord." At no age, but especially in old age, we should not be overly attached to our earthly life. Paul says plainly that "we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord." In his letter to the Philippians he says that ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2015/06/therese-sangster-is-former-parishioner.html

June 15 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - June 15, 2015 Today's gospel tells us of an almost impossible task: to offer no resistance to one who is evil. It seems to be a part of human nature to want to "strike back" to "defend one's self" to "retaliate in kind." Yes, it seems to be a part of nature, alright – but we must add here: it is part of fallen human nature. It is the way of sinful Adam and Eve and their children beginning with Cain and Abel to want to strike back and retaliate in kind or even ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/06/june-15-homily-for-today.html

To the thousands of faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square, Francis explained the two brief parables from the Gospel: the seed that grows in the earth alone and the tiny mustard seed that becomes the largest plant. "In the first parable, our attention is placed on the fact that the seed, thrown on the ground, ...http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2015/06/angelus-god-entrusted-his-word-to.html
