Novena for Order 2017, Day 1 DARWINCATHOLIC - August 11, 2017 The school year is getting ready to begin, so it's time for a novena. I've prayed a Novena for Order on and off since 2009. I love the prayer for ordering a life wisely by Thomas Aquinas, and I'll post it here and link back to it each day. This year, I'm going to post excerpts from Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade (1675-1751). Say the prayer with me, or read the excerpt, or use the posts as a reminder for your own devotion, but ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2017/08/novena-for-order-2017-day-1.html

Novena to St Dominic - Day 7 DOMINICAN NUNS IRELAND - August 5, 2017 St Dominic and Prayer As we continue our Novena to St Dominic, I would like to reflect on St. Dominic's Prayer. So deeply was Dominic moved by the LOVE of Jesus Christ Crucified that he strove in all things to imitate Christ, passing the day in apostolic work and the night in prayer. Prayer was the breath of St Dominic's Life and the light on his pilgrim path. He prayed always and He won more souls by his prayer than by preaching or miracles. Fervent and humble prayer was ...http://dominicannunsireland.blogspot.com/2017/08/st-dominic-and-prayer-as-we-continue.html

An ancient sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mother of God was for each the humble and sweet cornerstone of their edifice. ...http://dominicannunsireland.blogspot.com/2017/08/novena-to-st-dominic-day-4.html

Novena to St Dominic - Day 3 DOMINICAN NUNS IRELAND - August 1, 2017 St Dominic & Moses In his Libellus, Blessed Jordan tells us that "everywhere Dominic showed himself to be a man of the Gospel in word and in deed" – a man who brought good news and indeed like Christ, his Divine Exemplar, embodied in his own person the good news of the Gospel. No doubt Dominic's apostolic zeal sprang from his deep interior relationship with God - we are told that he spent long hours, often the entire night, in prayer and always spoke only "to God ...http://dominicannunsireland.blogspot.com/2017/08/novena-to-st-dominic-day-3.html

The scapular, which derives its name from the Latin word scapula, meaning shoulders, is a dress which covers the shoulders. It is mentioned in the rule of Saint Benedict as worn by monks over their other dress when they were at work, and it now forms a regular part of the religious dress in the old Orders. But it is best known among Catholics as the name of two little pieces of cloth worn out of ...http://battlebeads.blogspot.com/2017/07/our-lady-of-mount-carmel.html

Here we can understand why the pontiff is so committed to working against "walls" and any kind of "war of religion." Let's take this one at a time. - "...the most dangerous prospect for this strange ecumenism is attributable to its xenophobic and Islamophobic vision that wants walls ...http://connecticutcatholiccorner.blogspot.com/2017/07/vatican-takes-swipe-at-michael-voris.html

Why I (Nearly) Left the Church Recently JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - June 16, 2017 ... director said to me (twice!) kept replaying in my mind: that there was no point in me being a Catholic because I stunk at being one. Well, that's what I interpreted. His actual words during our last spiritual direction meeting (in which he kicked me out of his office ) were "what's the point?" (in my being Catholic). Direct quote; I wouldn't dare attribute false words to anyone, much less a priest. What was the point of me being a Catholic if ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2017/06/why-i-nearly-left-church-recently.html

Novena to the Holy Spirit Day Seven: Faithfulness (Thur.) THOMAS FOR TODAY - June 1, 2017 "The fruit of the Spirit is . . . faithfulness" (Gal 5:22) The word Paul uses here ( pistis) can be translated as faith or faithfulness. But in the context of Galatians, in which Paul speaks about how faith in Christ justifies us, it can probably be best seen as a trust founded on God's own faithfulness (that's from Matera's commentary.) This kind of faithfulness leads us to trust that God will always be with us no matter what trials we are going through. ...http://thomasfortoday.blogspot.com/2015/05/novena-to-holy-spirit-day-seven.html

Throughout your life you even suffered imprisonment, scourging, stoning, and shipwreck; you endured persecutions of every kind for the sake of the Gospel.

The apostles were dragged before the town magistrates, who punished them. They were severely beaten with rods and locked up in the town jail (see Acts 16: 19ff.) But Paul and Silas didn't get discouraged. Instead, they talked to the other prisoners and praised God with prayers and hymns. They were joyful even while undergoing such trials.

Novena: Prelude MAN WITH BLACK HAT - May 25, 2017 ... of forty was arrived at by the end of the third century, to make it easier for Christians to count the days after Easter on their fingers and toes and double the total. But we're so much more sophisticated now, and we can use calculators to count that high, or have our smartphones remind us."

I drove myself a little crazy that first week because I wanted to figure things out ASAP . I was tempted to do a Holy Spirit novena right away but I held off until I felt it was the right time. Instead of jumping in, I took the first two weeks off and tried to relax. Tried is the key word. Not doing anything goes against my "need" to keep busy because I get bored easily. Still, I knew I needed the break and I ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2017/05/foot-tapping-im-not-impatient.html
