Liberty (check), Equality (check-Mostly), Fraternity (uh-Oh) NUNBLOG - July 15, 2016 ... after the sisters were guillotined the Reign of Terror was over.) Terrorism is not a brand-new phenomenon. The martyred nuns of Orange also met death at the guillotine. I found myself wondering, as the news from Nice began flashing across social media, whether in some way the ideals of "liberty, equality and fraternity" can flourish when they are stripped of their origins in the Gospel. After all, until Christianity began to influence cultures, nobody ...http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/2016/07/liberty-check-equality-check-mostly.html
Reflection: Matthew 10:16-23 THE DOME BLOG - July 8, 2016 Friday of the 14th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 10:16-23 Today Jesus continues his instructions to his disciples, yet today's Gospel has a very different tone from yesterday's Gospel.

Reflection: Matthew 8:18-22 THE DOME BLOG - June 27, 2016 Monday of the 13 th Week in Ordinary Time – Matthew 8:18-22 Today's gospel passage from Matthew is very similar to the gospel reading that we heard yesterday from Luke.

He tells Jesus, "Lord, let me go first and bury my ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/06/reflection-matthew-818-22.html
I Do, With the Help of God FATHER JIM CHERN'S BLOG - May 28, 2016 ... that length of time from birth to adulthood - is now that same length of time I'm reflecting on. Only this time, counting my life as a priest. 17 years on May 29 th . It doesn't seem real to me. I mean I don't think I'm old - and I remember thinking at some point in my pre-priest life (or even my early years of priesthood) whenever I would meet a priest who said he had been ordained around this length of time, I had this sense of "oh this guy's experienced (a polite way of ...http://chernjam.blogspot.com/2016/05/i-do-with-help-of-god_28.html

That could be quite a reward depending on ...http://ferdinandbenedictines.blogspot.com/2016/05/reflection-mark-1028-31.html
