Time to Set Forth PRAYER ON THE HILL - April 21, 2014 ... thoughts about post-Lent resolutions. It is always a joy to celebrate Easter Sunday morning Masses: the congregations are usually filled with a lively heart. The greetings received after Mass relate a spiritual excitement. The liturgy and the "message" in the homily along with a filled church make for a strong celebration. People want to be happy. Pray-ers like to celebrate not the ending of Lent but the sense of ...http://prayeronthehill.blogspot.com/2014/04/time-to-set-forth.html

Easter Proclamation Abolishes Papacy: Sure. And I Also Believe That the Easter Bunny Is Real! WHERE THE RUBBER HITS THE ROAD - April 21, 2014 ... things shout about, so my job and its attendant duties still lie ahead of me. Since the legitimate ministry & worship of Christ at any time is fruitful, but all the more so in the Easter celebrations which were a real boost to the Spirits (in every sense of the word!) for all concerned. This common witness to the faith sustains and vivifies my vocation and make me incredibly glad that God called me to serve as a parish priest.

Easter Monday (21 April 2014) FR. VICTOR BROWN'S CATHOLIC DAILY MESSAGE - April 21, 2014 When you put together the four accounts of the resurrection of Jesus as given to us in the gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John, what do you get? You get a rather confused reminiscence of the greatest event in world history. Is that surprising? Not at all! Whenever a group of people witness an event and then are asked to describe what happened, the same thing occurs. One noticed one thing; another something else. And each sees things from his and her own ...http://frbrown.wordpress.com/2014/04/21/easter-monday-21-april-2014/

Acts 2:32-33 And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid.

Easter Sunday SISTERS OF THE HOLY FAMILY - April 20, 2014 ... celebrate the eight days of Easter this week. We keep celebrating so that we might continue to enter into the meaning of the resurrection. In the early Church, the newly baptized would be at each liturgy this week, wearing their white garments. We go through our everyday lives this week conscious of the "white garments" we all wear. We are renewed as a priestly people, committed with Jesus to ...http://blog.holyfamilysisters.org/2014/04/20/easter-sunday-3/

Happy Easter! Christus Resurrexit! EYES ON HEAVEN - April 20, 2014 ... English Mass vigil was early – 7:00 PM. While I've always loved going to the midnight vigils and welcoming the Easter season in the dead of night, I have to say I was glad to be able to go to the vigil and still get a good night's sleep last night! As soon as I walked into the boys' bedroom this morning, Charbel leapt up. " Ding Ding Ding it's Easter Sunday! Paul, it's Easter! Mommy, do we get to have the cookies and candy now?" Haha. He and Paul had ...http://eyesonheaven.net/happy-easter-christus-resurrexit/

He gives rest to him who comes on the eleventh hour as well as to him who has toiled ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/SunlitUplands/~3/1p5cHmkEieA/the-easter-homily-of-st-john-chrysostom.html

For the rest of the day, I will be doing some much neglected work (both around the house and blog related work) as well as taking time to enjoy life with my family.  Hubby and I will be running errands during that time to get a few goodies for the boys' Easter baskets as well.  And through the business, I will be eagerly awaiting the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DayByDayInOurWorld/~3/e77hwGTVSAc/

Remembering the Last Supper ~ Holy Thursday 2014 DAY BY DAY IN OUR WORLD - April 17, 2014 ... me.  In years past, I have been able to leave my schedule fairly open and fully participated in the different Masses and services as we mark Christ's last days and ultimately His Resurrection.  This year is different as other aspects of my life (specifically homeschooling) intersect and have me spending my time on continuing education instead. However, I am taking time once the crazy day is over to quietly read and meditate on today's Scripture readings.    ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/DayByDayInOurWorld/~3/rP-kekFPm4g/

Holy Thursday CATHOLIC FIRE - April 17, 2014 ... and priests. Later that night, after sundown – because Passover began at sundown- the Holy Thursday Liturgy takes place, marking the end of Lent and the beginning of the sacred "Triduum," or three, of Holy Week. These days are the three holiest days in the Catholic Church. This Mass stresses the importance Jesus puts on the humility of service, and the need for cleansing with water, a symbol of baptism. Also emphasized are the critical importance of the Eucharist and the ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2014/04/holy-thursday.html

Remember That Endings Are Nothing More Than Beginnings  - April 16, 2014 WEDNESDAY OF HOLY WEEK Today was the last full day of Lent. Tomorrow, Lent officially ends before evening prayer. On Holy Thursday evening, the Mass of the Lord's Supper signals an ending and a beginning: Lent ends and the Triduum (the three holy days of Easter) begin. Endings are never really endings, are they? When a school year ends, we know that a new school year begins again in the fall. When a student graduates from ...http://mydailymusing.com/index.php?/archives/1831-Remember-That-Endings-Are-Nothing-More-Than-Beginnings.html

The Sundays of Lent have given us many Gospel themes ripe for contemplation: Jesus in the desert, the Transfiguration, the Samaritan woman at the well; but no story more captured me or brought more fruit to my personal prayer life this ...http://crusadermaximus.tumblr.com/post/82945639060

Monday evening brings the celebration of the Mass of the Oils, celebrated at one of the larger churches in the Diocese.

Homily - "Go to the Cross" GW CATHOLIC Q & A - April 14, 2014 ... you tonight to go to the Cross. This week the Church goes to the Cross in commemorating the events of our salvation. On Holy Thursday, we celebrate Mass at St Stephen's on the night that Jesus instituted the Eucharist and the priesthood. Later that night at Newman, we try to stay up all night with Christ in the Garden, and have about as much success as the Apostles did. Good Friday, I will be offering confessions from 12 noon – 6 pm at ...http://gwcatholicforum.blogspot.com/2014/04/homily-go-to-cross.html

Kenosis JESUS GOES TO DISNEY WORLD - April 14, 2014 "He emptied himself." All during this Lent, we have been reflecting as a community on the "Inside-Out" experience of God's work in our lives. Our readings and prayer have focused on how God enters into the life of the believer and transforms us – turns us inside-out – and sets us on a path of new life. However, none of this experience would be valuable – nor would it even be possible – had God not first gone through His own ...http://jesusindisney.blogspot.com/2014/04/kenosis.html

Easter in the Home TRUE RESTORATION - April 14, 2014 ... mine. I have done what I can to encourage them to enter into the spirit of Lent, and I want them to look forward to Easter. Not with immense relief that their "fast" from movies and desserts is over, not as a day dedicated to bunnies, Easter eggs, and candy, not as merely an occasion for a special meal that draws together as many relatives as possible. But to look forward to Easter in its correct light, as the highest feast of the Church, the celebration – and ...http://truerestoration.blogspot.com/2014/04/easter-in-home.html
