Reflection for the 25th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - September 18, 2016 Monday – Shine "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father." Today's Gospel acclamation reminds us that we are called to shine in this often dark, dreary world. We are called to shine God's light into every place we go and upon every person we meet. To do this, we have to become transparent. We have to scrub away sin, wipe away worry, and polish up our virtues. We need to get rid of anything ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-for-25th-week-in-ordinary.html
Rejoice and Be Glad! A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - September 7, 2016 Today's Gospel Acclamation taken from Jesus' Sermon on the Plain: Rejoice and be glad: your reward will be great in heaven. If you know that you have been chosen by the Father, that you hear the voice of Jesus your shepherd and follow him, and that the Holy Spirit is guiding you on your journey back to God, why shouldn't you rejoice and be glad in advance of receiving your reward in heaven? You really should be the happiest person(s) in ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2016/09/rejoice-and-be-glad.html
Mass, Some Sand, and Me GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - September 6, 2016 ... guy. But the place looks great. And what a beautiful weekend it was here in Chicago! Because of the weekend project, I wanted to get as early a start as possible on Sunday morning, so I decided to go to my parish's first Sunday morning Mass, at 7:00 A.M. I don't think I have ever been to as early a Mass as this in my life. That time of the morning in downtown Chicago is so peaceful. It was wonderful entering the church that seemed to be waiting for us to begin ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2016/09/mass-some-sand-and-me.html
Fantastic Promise A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - July 19, 2016 Today's Gospel Acclamation, what Jesus said in John 14.23: Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. How loving and lovely that God should want to get us so intimately involved with the Father and the Son! It is truly a fantastic promise that we must not forget as long as we live.http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2016/07/fantastic-promise.html
Jul 9 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - July 9, 2016 + We have two powerful readings for Mass again today. The first reading is the dramatic and magnificent calling of Isaiah to be Prophet of the Most High God. Having first seeing a vision of the very heavenly throne of God – with the Seraphim rank of angels with 6 wings each ministering to God and crying to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts! All the earth is filled with his glory!" We can see how we get the ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2016/07/jul-9-homily-for-today.html
Oh, What a "Short" Morning GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - July 5, 2016 ... parish, Old Saint Patrick's in the West Loop of Chicago. The church was about half full, perhaps a little over 200 people. It was what we in the liturgical/music "biz" would call a "quiet Mass." Simply put, no music. I have not attended a "quiet Mass" in many, many years. When I first began my music and liturgy ministry at Saint Marcelline Parish in Schaumburg, Illinois back in 1992, one of my tasks was to introduce music to the 7:45 A.M. Mass community. I attended that ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2016/07/oh-what-short-morning.html
