Be Strong Now A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - August 28, 2015 Yesterday was the memorial of St. Monica and today, that of St. Augustine, her son. In the Gospel acclamation Luke 21.36, Jesus said, "Be vigilant at all times and pray that you may have the strength to stand before the Son of Man." This is the strength we need to stand before the Lord at judgment time. But we are standing before him right now, the only difference being that he is not judging us yet. So, why not live ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/08/be-strong-now.html

Waiting Like Christians YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - August 28, 2015 Memorial of Saint Augustine, Bishop and Doctor of the Church By Colleen O'Sullivan This is the will of God, your holiness: that you refrain from immorality. (I Thessalonians 4:3) "At midnight there was a cry, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.' But the wise ones replied 'No, for there may not be enough for us and you. ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2015/08/waiting-like-christians.html

Path to God A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - August 26, 2015 Gospel acclamation at Mass, 1 John 2.5: Whoever keeps the word of God, the love of God is truly perfected in him. It's in keeping the word of God that we keep our path straight. See life as a journey to God and a crooked path will not take you there.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/08/path-to-god.html

Gospel Not Old News A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - August 25, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation at Mass, based upon Hebrews 4.12: The word of God is living and effective, able to discern reflections and thoughts of the the heart. It is a big mistake to overlook the Gospel, thinking that it's outdated news. On the contrary, the Gospel remains new and fresh since God remains so forever.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/08/gospel-not-old-news.html

Reflections for the 20th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 2 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - August 19, 2015 Thursday – A Misguided Vow Today's first reading is enough to make us sit up and take notice if we're even remotely paying attention. Jephthah has been specially selected by the Spirit of God to be one of the judges, or leaders, of Israel. His task is to defeat the Ammonites, the latest enemy bearing down upon the little nation. Jephthah, however, is a rather rash man, and he doesn't think before he speaks. He is ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflections-for-20th-week-in-ordinary_19.html

Why Are the Readings Not Chanted? THE HERMENEUTIC OF CONTINUITY - August 18, 2015 ... tradition in the matter of who does the first reading, it has to be the celebrant or a deacon, not an ordained Lector, an instituted Lector, or a layperson stepping into this role. Modern liturgists will probably want to argue that in the modern rite, lay people have a liturgical role and various ministries, and that doing the reading is one of them. This question is one of those left essentially unresolved by almost universally tolerated practice. ...http://the-hermeneutic-of-continuity.blogspot.com/2015/08/why-are-readings-not-chanted.html

Reflections for the 19th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 2 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - August 12, 2015 Thursday – Forgiveness Jesus challenges us in today's Gospel. The whole thing begins with a question from Peter. He wants to know how many times he must forgive someone who has sinned against him. Must he forgive even seven times? Not seven times, Jesus replies, but seventy-seven times. In other words, forgiveness should be constant. We must always forgive those who have hurt us. That might seem impossible. There are some hurts, some horrors, that wound us to the ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2015/08/reflections-for-19th-week-in-ordinary_12.html

Be Little to Hear From God A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - July 15, 2015 Today is the memorial of St. Bonaventure. In the Gospel acclamation, Matthew 11.25, Jesus exclaimed: "Blesses are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom." Again, to hear God, we need to be childlike, passive, and waiting. People do not find God because they want God to show himself to them. God being so much greater than us, we need to be little before him to stand a better chance ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/07/be-little-to-hear-from-god.html

Always Timely Call A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - July 8, 2015 I still remember the witty saying "Everything changes but the avant-garde" I came across a long time ago. I can now also say that "Everything changes but the love of God." Today's Gospel acclamation (Mark 1.15) at Mass reads: The kingdom of God is at hand: repent and believe in the Gospel. Like the avant-garde, this call remains as fresh as ever.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/07/always-timely-call.html

Time for Weeping A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - June 27, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation at Mass, Matthew 8.17: "Jesus took away our infirmities and bore our diseases" (as prophesied by Isaiah). Jesus must be our first victim soul, who suffered for our sins for our salvation. Seeing how uncaring and ungrateful the average sinner is today, it's most appropriate for us to pause and weep for them and ourselves. Seeking God's forgiveness is urgently our first order of business.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/06/time-for-weeping.html

Authentic or False A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - June 25, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation, John 14.23, at Mass read: Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and we will come to him. Suppose that Jesus was the Son of God, then he really meant what he said and you can accept that. Now suppose that an ordinary human had said it, you'll know immediately that the speaker must not know what he's talking about. Read the Gospels through and you'll find Jesus not ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/06/either-authentic-or-false.html

The Heart Belongs to God A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - June 22, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation at Mass, Hebrews 4.12: The word of God is living and effective, able to discern reflections and the thoughts of the heart. The mind has its own intelligence, but God always speaks to the heart. While our intelligence remains fixed, our heart grows in knowledge as God teaches us. Also, the heart directly affects the mind. When the heart is pure, the mind is pure; if it's filthy, ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-heart-hears-and-thinks.html

Grand Statement A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - June 4, 2015 Today's Gospel acclamation (based upon 2 Timothy 1,10): Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel. Here's a statement that pretty much says how much God loves us.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/06/grand-statement.html

To Follow Jesus A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - May 18, 2015 ... are to be Jesus' witnesses. The Gospel acclamation, "If then you were raised with Christ , seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God" (Colossians 3.1), reminded me that we have been raised with Christ. In the Gospel reading from John 16, the disciples said to Jesus, "Now we realize that you know everything and that you do not need to have anyone question you. Because ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/to-follow-jesus.html

Jesus Not to Be Dismissed A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - May 16, 2015 I attended a local church nearby for morning Mass. The Gospel acclamation, John 16.28, read: I came from the Father and have come into the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father. The Communion verse, John 17.24, read: Father, I wish that where I am, those you gave me may also be with me, that they may also see the glory that you gave me. I found these two sayings of Jesus impossible to dismiss; we must believe that Jesus knew ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/jesus-not-to-be-dismissed.html

The Lord Seeking Union A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - May 6, 2015 Two verses of the Gospel reading from John 15 formed today's Gospel acclamation: R emain in me, as I remain in you, says the Lord, whoever remains in me will bear much fruit. Jesus invites us to remain in him. As if this is not beautiful enough, he wants to remain in us! To be in each other is to be one, so the Lord is seeking union with us here. Naturally, in union much fruit will be produced.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-lord-seeking-union.html
