Why do we have to ask? The desire has to precede the gift. If we receive a gift that we do not want, we thank the giver politely and then put it on a shelf. The gifts of God are not made for shelves. God is not holding back a gift until we ask for it nicely. His hands ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DailyHomilies/~3/2FJr3N6YnV4/february-26-2015-thursday-of-first-week.html

A Profoundly Catholic Lent and Beyond: Catholics Groups and Parishes, Clean Up GOD IS AT WORK IN YOU! - February 25, 2015 We cannot change the unethical and abusive behavior we refuse to acknowledge but celebrate instead.

Today Is My Sisters Birthday! REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - February 24, 2015 My sister is persuasive but this year I resisted the invitation to fly to Scottsdale with my nephew to help her celebrate her birthday. She has her husband, her children, my brother and many others. As I am the oldest in our family, I remember waiting for the baby and hoping it would be a black baby. My Dad said "No" to that so I held out for a puppy and actually got both a baby sister and a puppy. I am still "recuperating" at Oakwood, but hope to rejoin my community ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2015/02/today-is-my-sisters-birthday.html

Reflection on the Readings for the First Sunday of Lent - 2015 FROM ST. ANTHONY'S WALNUT TREE - February 23, 2015 ... two by two, to enter the Ark. We see Noah and his family, smiling as they welcome the creatures coming towards them. Yet, like most of our modern fairy tales, the origin of the story of the Ark; the deeper meaning of the story, can be grim and frightening. We see God, looking out at the humanity that inhabits His world and seeing only evil and corruption. Like a potter, unhappy with the pottery he has made, God intends to destroy His creation, wipe the slate ...http://stanthonyswalnuttree.blogspot.com/2015/02/reflection-on-readings-for-first-sunday.html

Sunday!!!! CHERISHED HEARTS AT HOME - February 22, 2015 ... celebrate Our Lord's resurrection and for many of us it is the time of sharing in the community of faithful in a Church near our homes. However as joyful as it can be more often than not it can often be the cause of great stress for many families as we all struggle to get ready to attend Church on time. There is sure to be at least one child who cannot find his shoes or as often as not if the shoes are found matching socks are no where in evidence. Naturally ...http://cherishedheartsathome.blogspot.com/2015/02/sunday.html

"Feast of the Enunciation" SCELATA - February 21, 2015 Let's add this to the calendar, shall we? a day to laud the patron saint of lay readers, whoever that might be, when we can all celebrate those who actually differentiate between "immorality" and "immortality." We had several lay readers the past few weeks who obviously don't much look at the lectionary reading ahead of time? So everything is a bit of a surprise? Blow the trumpet? A humble, content [sic] heart? And ...http://scelata.blogspot.com/2015/02/feast-of-enunciation.html

Our Covenant of One Revisited (First Sunday of Lent) HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - February 21, 2015 ... covenant was fundamental to God's plan as revealed to Abraham; it was at the very root of the existence of the chosen people as the People of God. Throughout the history of Israel, God showed himself to be faithful to his covenant while demanding their faithfulness in return. Ultimately, he announced through the Prophets that the covenant based on the Ten Commandments had to give way to a new and everlasting covenant written on human hearts. All this was in the mind of Christ when he ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2015/02/samuel-goldwyn-legendary-movie-producer.html

The Flood, Christ in the Wilderness, and the New Creation: Readings for the First Sunday of Lent THE SACRED PAGE - February 20, 2015 This Sunday we celebrate the First Sunday of Lent. The lectionary readings focus on the flood--at least the first two. The reason for this might not seem immediately clear. The Gospel reading, taken from Mark, then goes on to describe Christ's forty days in the wilderness. How do all these selections relate to one another? Here I shall try to offer an explanation. To tip my hand ahttp://www.thesacredpage.com/2015/02/the-flood-christ-in-wilderness-and-new.html

Alone and fasting Moses saw The loving God who gave the law; And to Elijah, fasting, came The steeds and chariots of flame. So Daniel trained his mystic sight, Deliver'd from the lions' might; And John the Bridegroom's friend, became The herald of Messiah's name. Then grant us, Lord, like them to do Such ...http://amomforlife-theunconventionalfamily.blogspot.com/2015/02/7-quick-takes-portal-edition.html

Small Success Thursday: Beginning Lent MORE THAN ENOUGH - February 19, 2015 ... really do like it! We need to celebrate our victories, even the small ones, from time-to-time! 1. I put away my winter decorations and started decorating for Lent. I used to be really good at putting out some physical reminders of this holy season, but the last few years have been less-than-ideal. This weekend, however, I heard an inspiring talk by Catholic speaker Patty Schneier, and she encouraged me to get out my purple ...http://morethanenough7.blogspot.com/2015/02/small-success-thursday-beginning-lent.html

This will gradually induce Canadians—including Catholics—to take the easy way out, to flee the message of the Cross, when facing pain or disease. Many Christians seem to have embraced moralistic therapeutic deism as their code of life. This is a diluted Christian faith. This belief system agrees that God the creator exists and watches over us. But, he just wants us to be good and nice to each other, as taught by most world religions. ...http://archbishopterry.blogspot.com/2015/02/our-christian-lenten-journey-prayer.html

Because You Ashed... ARE WE THERE YET? - February 19, 2015 All About Ashes * Lent has been observed by the Church from the very earliest days, but the tradition of using ashes on the first day of Lent only showed up some time in the 10th century. In 1091, at the council of Benevento, Pope Urban II ordered the local custom extended to the church in Rome, and soon thereafter we find liturgical writers of the time generally referring to the day as "Feria Quarta Cinerum" (Ash Wednesday) ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2015/02/because-you-ashed.html

Ash Wednesday VIEW FROM THE AMBO - February 18, 2015 Lent is a blessed time in the Church year. The season was first experienced by the Catechumens (those who were to be baptized at the Easter Vigil) as that they entered 40 days of intense spiritual preparation before their sacramental entrance into the Church. The time-frame of forty days was not haphazardly chosen, but because of Jesus' own 40 days in the desert, the 40 years of the Hebrews being purified in the desert through their wandering, and Elijah's fast of 40 days ...http://frtodd.blogspot.com/2015/02/ash-wednesday.html

Ash Wednesday, Cycle B LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - February 18, 2015 If we knew we were to die tomorrow, how would we live today? At its very heart, that is the question we seek to answer during this Lenten season. It is why this season, above all, is so penitential and why we either give something up or place some form of sacrifice upon ourselves. It is also why we abstain from meat, something that used to ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2015/02/ash-wednesday-cycle-b.html
