Celebrate Holy Week SISTERS OF THE HOLY FAMILY - April 14, 2014 ... ourselves moved from cries of "Hosanna!" to cries of "Crucify him!" just a few minutes later as we read the Passion from this year's Gospel, Mark. Monday evening brings the celebration of the Mass of the Oils, celebrated at one of the larger churches in the Diocese. At this annual Mass, the Bishop blesses the Oil of Catechumens, the Oil of the Sick and the Sacred Chrism, the three oils that will be distributed to parishes of the Diocese for the anointings that will occur ...http://blog.holyfamilysisters.org/2014/04/14/celebrate-holy-week/

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

The Final Week of Lent: Holy Week ABOUT.COM CATHOLICISM - April 13, 2014 Lent is finally coming to an end, and we begin Holy Week with the triumphal procession of Palm Sunday , when Christ entered Jerusalem and the people laid palms on the road before Him. Five days later, on Good Friday , some of those same people were likely among those who cried, "Crucify Him!" We can learn a lot from their behavior. "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak," and even as Lent draws to a ...http://catholicism.about.com/b/2014/04/13/the-final-week-of-lent-holy-week.htm

Turn Again, and Strengthen Your Brethren—Palm Sunday—Cycle A IS MY PHYLACTERY SHOWING? - April 13, 2014 Every year during Lent, my wife and I watch the Mel Gibson movie, The Passion of Christ . Sometimes having the visual reminder of Christ's passion helps us to get in the right penitential mindset. I don't think you can watch that depiction of the events of the Passion and remain unmoved. At one point in the movie, when the Sanhedrin have brought Jesus in front of Pilate to request that he be condemned, Pilate says something that does not appear in scripture but is certainly ...http://theocoid.blogspot.com/2014/04/turn-again-and-strengthen-your.html

I know Lent is always the same number of days, but this year it has seemed particularly long. I am thankful that tomorrow is Palm Sunday. Either I am doing Lent really right, because I am weary, or really wrong, because. I am weary. 2. Thankful for family. Last night, I attended my Uncle Cliff's 90th birthday party.

Can't Wait 11 ON MY OWN - April 10, 2014 ... sometime mid-April the decision committee will let you know. That is almost 6 months of waiting! I don't do well with waiting. The denial letters went out March 31. Did not get one of those, thanks be to God. However, the stress of it all doesn't end there, oh no. There is a fall date and a spring date. So if one IS in, one could get the required first aid, titers, physical, books and uniforms, and have a nice relaxing summer (not that working two jobs is relaxing) waiting for ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/11OnMyOwn/~3/foCvKlwLUE0/

Going to Confession MARY AND JOSEPH'S GEM - April 7, 2014 Lent is a time when we focus on the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Confession as it is more commonly called. If we are honest with ourselves it is probably the one sacrament that most of us dread to celebrate. Why is this? The answer is probably something along the lines of 'none of us likes to admit that we have done any thing wrong.' Those of you who have small children will see this ...http://mariesgem.blogspot.com/2014/04/going-to-confession.html

Rising From the Ashes. THE CITY AND THE WORLD - April 7, 2014 ... reduced to ashes. I also thought of elements of the building itself, like this Pantokrator icon located at the highest point of the church, the center of the cupola in the middle of the sanctuary. Seeing this icon took a bit of effort, requiring one to lean back and to crane one's neck. Looking at this image now, I think of a time in the fall when a group of students in a special architecture program at Cawthra Park Secondary School in Mississauga came to St. Elias with their teacher to look ...http://jesuitjoe.blogspot.com/2014/04/rising-from-ashes.html

About two years after that, I was home from the parish on my days off, sitting at the kitchen table with my mother and we were talking about my father.

In a letter of the same apostle we read: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God; he who does not love does not know God for God is love. The faithful should therefore enter into themselves and make a true judgment on their attitudes of mind and heart. If they find some store of love's fruit in ...http://enlargingtheheart.wordpress.com/2014/04/03/leo-the-great-charity-contains-all-other-virtues-and-covers-a-multitude-of-sins/
