A Reading for the 4th of July VOX NOVA - July 4, 2015 ... daily gospel readings, and was reading Advent in Lent. Well, I got pretty far caught up, but then Holy Week hit and I fell off my stride and I am really behind again. But today, I opened the oldest readings and they were from February 4, and the first reading, from the Letter to the Hebrews, seems oddly fitting for our nation as we celebrate the Fourth of July. A blessed holiday weekend to everyone! Brothers and sisters: In your struggle ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/07/04/a-reading-for-the-4th-of-july/

Monday, June 29, 2015 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - June 26, 2015 The Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles (Acts 12:1-11; II Timothy 4:6-8.17-18; Matthew 16:13-19) We prefer to think of the Church as a community of believers and a sign of God's presence in the world more than as an institution. But because it is an institution with laws, customs, and properties, the Church has been able to serve its members and the world. The institution, of course, is headquartered in Rome where Saints Peter and Paul came to facilitate ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2015/06/monday-june-29-2015.html

The green dots show that I'm now in the "normal" range for my height! Today is also my 100th day on the Auto-Immune Protocol (AIP) diet! (This is my favorite book on the topic .) I'm feeling so much better than I have in years.

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

Happy Easter and Third Sunday of Easter Homily 2015 DEO GRATIA - NADER'S BLOG - April 19, 2015 Happy Easter Everyone! I love that we get to celebrate Easter for 50 days.

Easter and Zombies CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 10, 2015 Zombies have been making the rounds lately. Not real ones, of course, because there are no real ones. It is to their great disadvantage that they do not exist, considering how popular they are. But then, they would have no great advantages in existing, either. While they may experience a certain brute satisfaction, their intellectual life and their spiritual life, I would think, are horribly wanting. But it's hard to say and hard to argue about because of the appalling lack ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/dkW4aoGioCU/easter-zombies

Remembering It's Still Easter When the Jellybeans Are Gone ARE WE THERE YET? - April 9, 2015 It's an easy thing to do: finish off the Easter candy, clean up the last piece of Easter grass, hang up the Easter clothes -- and feel like it's all done. Easter is over. And the secular world certainly is finished with the holiday as soon as Easter baskets won't sell any more... But we know better. The joy of the season has only just begun on Easter Sunday! Christ has risen! Here are some things to do that can help keep the season alive ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2015/04/remembering-its-still-easter-when.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. Then the other disciple also went ...http://www.aggiecatholicblog.org/2015/04/alleluia-he-is-risen/

Welcome Home Easter Homily A FRIAR'S LIFE - April 5, 2015 ... Easter?" He said, "Easter is the Christian holiday coinciding with the Jewish feast of Passover when Jesus and His disciples were eating the Last Supper, but He was deceived and turned over to the Romans by one of His disciples. The Romans crucified Him and made Him wear a crown of thorns. He was hung on a cross and buried in a cave which was sealed off by a large boulder." St. Peter said, "Very good. Anything else?" The man said, "Oh, right, and every year the boulder is moved aside so that ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2015/04/welcome-home-easter-homily.html

'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 . Thursday evening: the Lord Jesus and his Apostles celebrate the last Passover supper before his death; but it is also the first of the New Passover, which is what ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2015/04/it-all-comes-down-to-tomb-easter-homily.html

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. Everything seemed a bit strange, but the friend was very ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2015/04/top-ten-reasons-not-to-come-to-mass.html

Easter Vigil, Cycle B LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - April 4, 2015 ... transformative than this very night. In fact, St. Augustine calls it the Mother of All Holy Vigils, which is why every single season we celebrate, every single Mass we attend has led up to this very night, this most sacred night. That is why we have not only retraced the history of our salvation, by means of many readings, from creation to the cross but will renew our commitment to holiness, ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2015/04/easter-vigil-cycle-b.html

This Is the Night CF FAMILY - April 4, 2015 We have five sons that play with plastic figures all the time and make boy noises when they play. You know what this is, right? Even when big teens play with little brothers, they, too, make boy noises. Recently, a smaller son had a situation in the wood pile involving army guys and dinosaurs. He was happily moving things around and knocking things down when an older brother popped in and scanned the room. He brightened up when he noticed the wood pile drama and slid ...http://northerncffamily.blogspot.com/2015/04/this-is-night.html
