Sunday in the Octave of the Ascension 1863 THE MUNIMENT ROOM - May 16, 2015 ... and there is no Paschal fire: but it is still richer and fuller of symbolism than the modern Holy Saturday. (The Vigil takes place, of course, in the morning.) On the Vigil Catholics will fast in preparation because Pentecost is one of the great feasts. Anachronistically, please pray for the Catholic pilgrims we know from the blogosphere who will begin this week to march towards Chartres, before we next explore 1863: they are physically proclaiming and ...http://ttonys-blog.blogspot.com/2015/05/sunday-in-octave-of-ascension-1863.html

The Sixth Sunday of Lent CONFESSIONS OF A CATHOLIC MUTT - May 10, 2015 ... the people in our lives in a way that brings them closer to God. Obviously, those that are also physical mothers are called to be spiritual mothers first to their children, but also to anyone that is brought in their life. Those of us that for whatever reason are not physical mothers, are still called to nurture and "mother" those in our lives. I didn't really care that I wasn't standing. I was in the back, I didn't feel conspicuous. I think it was also because I felt I could have stood if I ...http://catholicmutt.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-sixth-sunday-of-lent.html

Catholics Love to Drink... Drinking With the Saints and Which Alcoholic Priest Are You? Drinking Games. ABBEY ROADS - May 7, 2015 Is everyone lit? Or, what to do with your life if you have a theology degree... Drink. Write a book. Develop a drinking game. Promote drinking and devotion to the saints ... Shirley, you jest. Seriously - the reason for this post is because I came across a couple of articles on the joy of alcohol for Catholics. One post was a fun, light-hearted sort of drinking game - "Which priestly alcoholic beverage are you?" It could be a Jeopardy category, it's so fun. Never mind ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2015/05/catholics-love-to-drink-drinking-with.html

They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first; he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in. When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.

'It All Comes Down to a Tomb' (Easter Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - April 5, 2015 After all our Lent, with penance and fasting, after all of Holy Week, after all those readings, it all comes down to a tomb. This part of the Church's year we call the "triduum"—"three days." But it would be more helpful to understand them as three nights .

Top Ten Reasons Not to Come to Mass Only at Easter HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - April 5, 2015 At Christmas and Easter we're very happy to welcome many visitors to the parish—both family members from out of town and others who live in the area but don't come regularly to church. Some years we even have a visitor or two who's never been to Mass before. The other day I heard about someone like that: at Easter she went to church for the first time, encouraged by her Catholic boyfriend.

We will celebrate Our Lord's glorious Resurrection beginning this evening at 10pm.

Granted, if we've understood the season of Lent properly, we've already been contemplating Our Lord's sacrifice since Ash Wednesday.

Saints Memorials During Lent COFFEE AND CANTICLES - March 26, 2015 ... and prayers of this feast were in your heart and on your lips yesterday. I was able to do all the hours in my car, thanks to my ipod and the the podcasts from DivineOffice.org, a real godsend for commuters.
