Revisiting Prayer Tracks THE CLOISTERED HEART - September 14, 2016 Because I don't live in a monastery, I hear no bells calling me to drop everything and take time for prayer in the middle of the day. I live out here where families need feeding, babies need diapering, and bosses want reports in by twelve o'clock sharp. Those in monasteries can usually pray at the same times. But 'out here,' everyone is going in a hundred different directions at once. So what about me? If I want a foundation of prayer to be the basis of ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2016/09/revisiting-prayer-tracks.html

Worth Revisiting - My Winged Messengers HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - September 13, 2016 ... with what they share. My Winged Messengers (Originally posted August 29, 2016) (Image source: Pixabay) Whenever I have been blessed to spend time in the chapel at the retreat house at the Abbey of Genesee an assortment of birds always flies above and around the exterior of the chapel as I first begin to pray – carefree, chirping, doing what God created them to do, and trusting Him to provide for their needs. After a time, they leave me as silence returns. The presence of my feathered ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2016/09/worth-revisiting-my-winged-messengers.html

(Wilfrid Tunink OSB, Vision of Peace, pp. 277-278) "The invocation of the holy name of Jesus is the simplest way of praying always… This prayer is possible 'at all times' because it is not one occupation among others but the only occupation: that of loving God, which animates and transfigures every action in Jesus Christ." (Catechism of the Catholic Church # 2668) "All aspirations are better when they are brief…. As we ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2016/09/revisiting-aspirations.html

Revisiting My Tiny One THE CLOISTERED HEART - August 31, 2016 ... close, something happened. I felt a desire to hold a tiny, tiny newborn. Being well beyond the age of giving birth myself, I attributed this longing to the fact that my youngest grandchild is now two. And yes, I think that's part of it. But it hit me: this "call to hold" may well be a nudge from God. I think it is a spiritual call, not a physical one.. and certainly it's in line with the call each of us has (to some degree or other) to pray for and help those in need. So today I am saying yes, ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2016/08/revisiting-my-tiny-one.html

Revisiting Keyholes THE CLOISTERED HEART - August 24, 2016 ... was not in words... it was simply a gentle sense of awareness that to bless Him as long as I live means that ... wow!!! ... I can bless Him forever! Jesus has come and opened to me the doors of eternal life, so I can praise Him forever! I told God this was the best thing I could imagine about eternal life. I went on, awhile later, into prayer of intercession for several people who came to mind, asking that they be given grace to seek God and to bless Him forever. The practice ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2016/08/revisiting-keyholes.html

Worth Revisiting - It's Not About Putting the Genie Back in the Bottle HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - August 16, 2016 ... with what they share. It's Not About Putting The Genie Back In The Bottle (Originally posted July 18, 2016) There was a time when everyone entering a Catholic Church knew enough to genuflect, to remain silent and to spend time in intimate interior conversation with their Loving Lord locked behind the tabernacle doors. God deserves nothing less today. (Photo©Michael Seagriff) Back in that day, everyone knew they were there in the Presence of God to adore and worship Him, not to visit with ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2016/08/worth-revisiting-its-not-about-putting.html

If you are someone who is joining this exploration for the first time, we welcome you to our "dig!" As we continue, we will keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. "If Christ is not the alpha and omega of the life," wrote Dom Hubert Van Zeller, "there is no particular point to monasticism." Jesus is the reason for our cloisters, and with Him as our focus - we begin. © 2011 Nancy Shuman. ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2016/08/revisiting-our-first-post.html

The Greek verb here is anapauō in which the verb pauō , to pause, is intensified by the prefix ana , completely. Jesus will give us complete pause, the refreshing rest that we need after the difficulties and struggles of our daily lives. To receive this rest, we need only to go to Jesus, to set our "normal" activities aside and sit at His feet in ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/07/reflection-for-15th-week-of-ordinary_14.html

"you have revealed them to the childlike" Jesus, the Eternal Word of the Father, is the first of the "childlike" ones to whom the Father reveals himself, and he said that only those "who become like little children can enter the Kingdom of Heaven" (Mt 18:3). In the light of today's Gospel, I find myself asking, "What if the Kingdom of Heaven is ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2016/07/taken-into-jesus-own-prayer.html

Again I Begin. Again. THE CLOISTERED HEART - July 6, 2016 While praying recently for a fresh wind of prayer, I ran across the following. I've edited it slightly, for I first scribbled this in a journal over twenty years ago. Over twenty years! Before iPads, Kindles, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, smart phones, texting, mobile apps. Back then, people went to dinners disconnected, engaging in conversation with no concerns about a purse ringing just as salads arrived. Yet even then, I was aware of how hard it was to tune in to the ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2016/07/again-i-begin-again.html

Revisiting the Liturgy of the Hours THE CLOISTERED HEART - June 22, 2016 ... prayer? I could not have been more wrong. The Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the 'Divine Office,' is an official group of prayers used by priests and Religious. It is a primary part of the daily schedules of monks and nuns. The Divine Office is the same for people throughout the Church, throughout the world. On the very same day, Father O'Neill in Dublin and a group of monks in Sydney and a monastery of nuns in Toledo are praying. And I can pray with them, if I wish.

Reflection for the 10th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - June 5, 2016 ... And that's exactly what God does, day and night, wherever we are, at every moment of our lives. If this is so, we might wonder why bad things happen to us. If God is truly guarding us, why aren't we safe from all evil? First off, sometimes we walk away from God's protection and go our own way. We make a free choice to step out of His rules and His care. Like a good parent, He still watches us, but He also sometimes lets us learn the lesson of what happens when we stray. Second, God sometimes ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/06/reflection-for-10th-week-in-ordinary.html
