The Santa Debate: Delving Into the Whys... A WOMAN'S PLACE... - December 12, 2014 ... Claus when Christmas rolls around. I thought it might be possible to write a post that talked about how we celebrate Christmas without getting into the whys... because for me the why is a personal decision that Paul and I agreed on more than half a decade ago, although anyone who's really curious could read one of the previous posts I wrote on one of those Decembers past when I was feeling less sleepy and more ready to defend my stance. Unfortunately Santa seems to be one of ...http://awomansplaceis.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-santa-debate-delving-into-whys.html

What This Blog Is. THE FIRE WITHIN - December 5, 2014 Hmmmm, I've been mulling over this blog. It's direction, what it's about, the awesome things I see in store for the upcoming year. I feel rejuvenated and I actually like doing it - instead of seeing it as just another thing on my ever-growing to do list. I'm really praying and pondering over the direction that this little slice of my life is going to take and I see some really cool things in store - at least cool in my mind. (I think shorts are cool in the winter so you can ...http://mikeandkristine.blogspot.com/2014/12/what-this-blog-is.html

"There Is No Individual Apart From a Family": Louis De Bonald's Defense of Marriage INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - November 26, 2014 ... divinely-inspired teachings on controversial topics often lead to conclusions similar to those of clear-headed human reflection. Per Bonald, we should not really need spelled out for us in ten-foot tall letters of revelatory fire the fact that divorce harms children, that it undermines the social fabric, that it is a plague to be combatted rather than a legitimate choice to be endorsed. Trapped in a culture that has forgotten not only the Gospel but common sense to boot, ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/11/there-is-no-individual-apart-from-a-family-louis-de-bonalds-defense-of-marriage.html

What Archbp. Chaput Really Said About the Synod FR. Z'S BLOG - October 25, 2014 ... do nothing to ease their burdens; then we will go to hell. Ignoring the needs of the poor among us is the surest way to dig a chasm of heartlessness between ourselves and God, and ourselves and our neighbors. [Pretty clear.] This searing spiritual challenge was the heart of Chaput's talk, but because our press is less concerned with the poor's suffering than the rich's interminable debates over sex, these words weren't highlighted. Instead, attention centered on Chaput's ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/bI_qpOk9wyw/

Apathetic Ignorance DISPUTATIONS - October 19, 2014 For years, I've used the term "idiot" to mean "someone who doesn't know that he doesn't know what he's talking about." In that sense, calling someone an idiot isn't [necessarily] an insult, it's an assertion of an empirical fact. Like the word "liar", "idiot" used this way categorizes behavior, not persons. (Though, like "liar," the habit of idiocy can weaken that distinction.) It now occurs to me that one reason there's so much idiocy -- I say "90% of everybody is an idiot" ...http://disputations.blogspot.com/2014/10/apathetic-ignorance.html

The Synod and the Real Vocation Crisis REAL LIFE ROSARY WEBLOG - October 16, 2014 ... wasn't a priestly or religious vocation crisis. It was and continues to be a marriage vocation crisis. Solid vocations - priestly, religious, AND married, most often come from solid marriage vocations. Like begets like. I am in no way discounting those who arrived at their vocations by other means but the lion's share of all vocations come from a solid marriage vocation or at least a solid Catholic Christian witness. If you are like me, even as I type, my mind tends to relegate marriage to a ...http://jamesmhahn.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-synod-and-real-vocation-crisis.html

Social Media: Over-Sharing and Disconnecting JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - October 15, 2014 ... talk much in person, I tend to "talk" a lot on social media... like on Twitter. I reply, I engage, I share. Same goes for my blog. I share a lot... but, as some of you may have noticed, there are some off-limit topics. I'm pretty much like that in person as well. My relationships are the most off-limit topic both on- and offline. Don't ask because I will either make a joke about it or simply change the topic. Stuff that goes ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2014/10/social-media-over-sharing-and.html

We are given a second topic on considering The Family in the Documents of the Church (4-7).

HeforShe TEA AT TRIANON - October 13, 2014 ... nearly a decade ago: "My word of thanks to women thus becomes a heartfelt appeal that everyone, and in a special way States and international institutions, should make every effort to ensure that women regain full respect for their dignity and role." That man was Pope St. John Paul II, in his June 29, 1995 "Letter to Women," issued prior to the United Nations Fourth International Conference on Women, held in Beijing. Institutions which have endured the test of time and the purification of fire ...http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2014/10/heforshe.html

Emma Watson's Empty Performance at the U.N. INSIGHT SCOOP THE IGNATIUS PRESS BLOG - October 1, 2014 ... HeforShe is Rotten for Men ". Young takes issue withthe campaign which the U.N. asked Watson to launch. HeforShe ( www.heforshe.org ) describes itself as a solidarity movement for gender equality, separating itself from other women's movements by claiming its inclusion of men is unique. But Young questions whether this inclusion is meaningful, suggesting that it is not only patronizing, but that HeforShe is actually damaging to solidarity. She argues that the commission and campaign do not ...http://insightscoop.typepad.com/2004/2014/10/emma-watsons-missed-opportunity-at-the-un.html

Religious Identity and Other-Orientation CREO EN DIOS! - September 20, 2014 ... covered many topics over the course of the day, including employment and student well-being, scholarship, and the relationship between justice and mercy. Part of the joy of this conference is the fellowship among those of us who see our faith as an integral part of our lives of law professors, both in and and outside of the formal sessions of the conference. That leads to our deep concern with helping our students discern with God who they will be in the world after they ...http://susanjoan.wordpress.com/2014/09/20/religious-identity-and-other-orientation/

Friday Potpourri: So Now That We Have Them, What Do We Do With Them? ADAM'S ALE - September 14, 2014 ... brought a movie over to watch about two years ago. "Dudes," sayeth he, "this is in my book as part of the 100 must see movies so it must be good." Don't believe everything you read. And thusly did we watch, "The Way We Were." What an awful film. We just kept saying, "We don't like these selfish characters. They shouldn't be together and in any case, we are beyond caring." Reading the "100 Movies Book" a little more closely it was disclosed that the authors also thought it ...http://clevelandpriest.blogspot.com/2014/09/friday-potpourri-so-now-that-we-have.html

Taking a Stand NANCY CARABIO BELANGER - September 12, 2014 ... fellow Catholic uses opportunities to make snide comments about his or her faith, and I have found many of these instances in your columns over the years. Today is no exception, with your comment about how several archdioceses were not to be "outdone." It was an unnecessary slam on a very significant claim that some of the monies that go to ALS are used for embryonic stem-cell research: stem cells taken from babies that have been denied a proper chance at ...http://nancybelanger.blogspot.com/2014/09/taking-stand.html

AFR Has a New Call-In Show BYZANTINE, TEXAS - August 29, 2014 ... Maddex, Operations Manager of Ancient Faith Radio. "The interviews will represent only a small portion of 'Faith Encouraged Live,' and what occurs on the program will change from broadcast to broadcast. We knew we could not replicate what Kevin Allen did with his excellent program. Fr. Barnabas has his own unique strengths, and this new show will play to them. It's going to be a different sort of radio call-in program, but just as insightful and entertaining as 'Ancient Faith Today.' We ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2014/08/afr-has-new-call-in-show.html
