A Word Can Help Us Pray... REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - May 18, 2017 Last week I spoke of words that sometimes help us to enter into deep prayer and I think at different times, different words help. I am still with the word "surrender" which is, of course, an old favorite of mine since my years in Chile when the verb was 'entregarme' or hand myself over to the Lord. Now I just seem to use the word to be totally open to whatever the Lord wants. Often the word is gratitude and helps me to enter into a deep and quiet state of ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2017/05/a-word-can-help-us-pray.html

Back to the Edge of My Knowing THE CLOISTERED HEART - May 18, 2017 ... knowing. I had thought I was alone, all by myself in this silent church. Yet now I knew an unseen sense of Presence. He was in this place; of course He was. I'd only needed to come away for a moment from the noise, so I could hear Him. I needed to be where His silence filled the air. He had been waiting for me to stop and listen. He had been waiting all along. "I have a secret dwelling place, a sanctuary closed to the world and occupied by God alone, where I can always say 'O my God! I belong ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2017/05/back-to-edge-of-my-knowing.html

Please visit them regularly at Reconciled to You and Theology is a Verb , respectively. May you find the following post worthwhile: I wish to share this post with you: Monday Musings - Hearts Have Grown Cold (Originally posted on March 6, 2017) Our world, country and Church are in turmoil - all because we have turned our backs to God. We think we know better than He. So prideful and self-centered ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2017/04/worth-revisiting-hearts-have-grown-cold.html

Christian Spirituality XXVIII: Asking, Seeking, Knocking PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - April 20, 2017 ... is quick to point out that the verb tense in this verse (in the Greek) is the present progressive. A better English translation would be, "Be asking… Be seeking…. Be knocking…. The Orthodox Study Bible adds that we, "…ask in prayer, we seek by learning God's truth, and we knock by doing God's will." I like to link this to 1 John 5:15, "And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have obtained the requests made of ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2017/04/christian-spirituality-xxviii-asking.html

Worth Revisiting - I Want My Priests and My People Close to Me to Console Me HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - April 11, 2017 ... each week. Here is my contribution: Eucharistic Reflection - Holy Thursday - I Want My Priests and My People Close to Me to Console Me (Originally posted April 2, 2015) (Image source: Wikimedia Commons ) Holy Thursday should be among the most treasured days in our Church as we commemorate and give thanks for the Gift of the Eucharist and the Priesthood. It must be an occasion for the spiritual re-invigoration of our priests and of all whom they serve. God is quite clear as to what He expects ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2017/04/worth-revisiting-i-want-my-priests-and.html

Spring: "Truly the Season for Joy and Hope" THE WILD REED - April 5, 2017 ... Purim, and the prayers of the Vedes for fertility and peace. In these spring celebrations, ceremonies, and prayers, the newly born life is closely associated with the divine. It is appropriate, then, that one fifteenth-century Indian prayer from the Hindu poet Surdas uses a striking spring image to suggest the loving relationship between humanity and God: "As the cow keeps her calf, so art Thou ever with Thine own." It may be that spring reminds us that life emerges from death ...http://thewildreed.blogspot.com/2017/04/spring-truly-season-for-joy-and-hope.html

Worth Revisiting- Praying Before the Tabernacle HARVESTING THE FRUITS OF CONTEMPLATION - March 29, 2017 ... You will enjoy your visit. Here's a brief reflection: Monday Musings - Praying Before the Tabernacle (Originally published on January 14, 1917) (Image source: Wikimedia Commons ) "I think there was a certain Bishop Curtis who said that when he prayed before the tabernacle he liked to picture himself as a faithful and devoted dog lying at his master's feet. Both are glad to have each other; both are silent. It is a rather unusual way of looking at the matter but it strikes home. ...http://harvestingthefruitsofcontemplation.blogspot.com/2017/03/worth-rtevisitng-praying-before.html

Revisiting Rose THE CLOISTERED HEART - March 29, 2017 The following from our friend Rose re mains our most popular post of all time: 'I had this idea that prayer, holiness, and the spiritual life were for the religious vocation and hidden behind high, thick brick walls. I longed to find a crack in that wall so I could have just a tiny taste of the spiritual life I once knew. 'Then the Holy Spirit brought the Cloistered Heart to me. The Cloistered Heart allowed me to squeeze through a tiny crack in that big brick wall. 'I long ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2017/03/revisiting-rose.html

Revisiting a Gradual Courage THE CLOISTERED HEART - March 7, 2017 ... picked up the book of the Letters of St. Paul and read the first passage his gaze fell on. It was just what Augustine needed, for in it, St. Paul says to put away all impurity and to live in imitation of Jesus. That did it! From then on, Augustine began a new life...." (from Catholic Online) In the tiny, hidden, day to day circumstances of our ordinary lives, imagine becoming "heroic!" It sounds presumptuous, doesn't it? But it isn't. It is not presumptuous at all.

A Pauline Reflection on Lectio Divina IMPACTING CULTURE BLOG - February 17, 2017 ... for …the motives for establishing the canon were largely liturgical and that liturgical use was an important factor in determining what Scriptures were to be included in the canon. Put simply, the canon was drawn up to establish which books should be read when the community gathered for worship, and the books included in the canon were those that were already being read in the Church's liturgy. [1] As a result of the liturgical nature of Scripture, it seems to follow that if one desires ...http://www.impactingculture.com/a-pauline-reflection-on-lectio-divina/

Now Is the Time THE CLOISTERED HEART - February 1, 2017 ... an 'awakening' I had several years ago. Feeling sad that I'd given too little time to God over the course of my life, too little time to prayer, too much time to trivialities, I experienced a different reaction than I'd had to such thoughts in the past. Rather than my usual 'woe is me,' I felt a gentle whisper of hope. If I could put it into a sentence, it was as if I sensed the words: 'but you have right now.' I have right now. I cannot turn back the clock and re-live minutes ...http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/2017/02/now-is-time.html
