Learning to Love Myself JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - January 21, 2015 For the record, that is not me in the picture but I still thought it was cute and fit with this post. For many years after my reversion there was one thing that many priests told me: I'm too hard on myself. Part of that was due to the scrupulosity I developed upon my reversion (I wanted to not do anything dumb that would cause me to not receive the Eucharist so I was too overly cautious) and the other part was the fact that I grew up feeling like I was never good enough. ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/01/learning-to-love-myself.html
Finis St. Louis De Montfort THE ONE TRUE FAITH - January 20, 2015 I finally finished True Devotion Consecration to Mary , by St. Louis de Montfort. Actually the book is a compilation of de Montfort's writings: The Love of Eternal Wisdom , The Secret of the Rosary , The Secret of Mary , Letter to the Friends of the Cross , and the True Devotion Consecration . These were all arranged by Fr. Helmuts Libietis. It took me five weeks to finish. I committed myself to make this consecration and I did, and will. I finished the book, but I'm ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2015/01/finis-st-louis-de-montfort.html
Winter Ordinary Time, How Shall We Spend It? LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - January 13, 2015 ... everybody! Still cold here :) but a beautiful, sunny winter day. I was thinking as I was driving into work today about the fact that we are now officially back in Ordinary Time. Yet far from being boring, this beginning segment (if you will) of Ordinary Time is always interesting to me because it varies in length each year depending upon the placement of Easter. This year we have from now until February 18th to savor the non-penitential nature and saint feast ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2015/01/winter-ordinary-time-how-shall-we-spend.html

Where Did ADVENT Come From? A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - November 28, 2014 Can't tell you how many times I heard on the radio today that "the Christmas season has officially begun." One would be hard pressed to find a clearer indication that in American culture, Christmas is intimately linked, even identified, with shopping for gifts and decorating homes, inside and out. There are still plenty of Thanksgiving leftovers but the tree is up, decorated and the the lights ON! Online, especially on FaceBook, I've seen ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2014/11/where-did-advent-come-from.html
