Homily: In Safe Hands BUKAS PALAD - January 3, 2015 ... express well what comings and goings can mean. We come to a place to visit; we look and see; we taste and savour; we enjoy our encounters. Then, we go home, laden with memories and souvenirs for ourselves and good buys and gifts for family and friends. Don't we come with little but go home with more, sometimes too much more with heavier bags or multiple ones? Pilgrimages are no different. We come to a holy place with good intentions and perhaps, more ...http://bukas-palad.blogspot.com/2015/01/homily-in-safe-hands.html

Advent, the Road to Bethlehem CATHOLIC BY GRACE - December 13, 2014 I have dipped my toes in the chaos of the Christmas-before-Advent scene. I've been to the mall once. I've landed on radio stations that play Christmas music around the clock – and quickly popped in my Rosary CD to escape the noise. I've seen enough of commercialized Christmas even though I have actively avoided it this year. Advent is the only antidote. But Advent only comes to those who know how to ...http://catholicbygrace.blogspot.com/2014/12/advent-road-to-bethlehem.html
Wherein Fr. Z Is Happy FR. Z'S BLOG - December 4, 2014 You might recall that, at the end of October, while I was in Rome I shopped for fabric and trim and ordered up a set of Pontifical vestments from the famous ecclesiastical shop Gammarelli. Here are a couple of shots from back then. The fabric cut out and ready to go on 28 October. Today, just over one month, the vestments arrived. Not bad for a full Pontifical set! Gammarelli stock went up for me because of this project. It used to take them forever to ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/J_9cdq7enjI/
DPPL 125: Ashes Into Lent CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - November 13, 2014 ... Roman Rite, the beginning of the forty days of penance is marked with the austere symbol of ashes which are used in the Liturgy of Ash Wednesday. The use of ashes is a survival from an ancient rite according to which converted sinners submitted themselves to canonical penance. The act of putting on ashes symbolizes fragility and mortality, and the need to be redeemed by the mercy of God. Far from being a merely external act, the Church has retained the use of ashes to symbolize that attitude ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/11/13/dppl-125-ashes-into-lent/
St. John Lateran: Moving From Criticism to Humble Service FATHER DENNIS - November 9, 2014 ... hear complaints about dirty bathrooms, cobwebs in windows and corners, and kitchens that aren't very clean. People want a good faith formation program where they can drop their kids off and have someone teach them the faith. And they wanted to be convenient and something they are in charge of. And people want mass to be short and fun. Mass should last less than one hour and there should be a good corny joke at some point that they can share ...http://fatherdennis.blogspot.com/2014/11/st-john-lateran-moving-from-criticism.html
Catholic Gifts for Christmas - Lots of LINKS TOTUS TUUS FAMILY & CATHOLIC HOMESCHOOL - November 6, 2014 ... "Gentle" reminders keep coming to me that there are only a few weeks until Christmas. While I didn't want to get ahead of myself, I did count... gulped ...and decided I did want to be proactive. I asked a Facebook group of Catholics... Besides the Mystic Monk coffees what other monasteries or nunneries can we support by shopping their gift catalogs this Christmas? I had purchased the Monks ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/ePBq/~3/CBpIZCHF7iU/catholic-gifts-for-christmas-lots-of.html
