Feast of Our Lady's Seven Sorrows ARE WE THERE YET? - March 27, 2015 ... liturgical year by remembering what real sorrow is. Granted, if we've understood the season of Lent properly, we've already been contemplating Our Lord's sacrifice since Ash Wednesday. Theoretically, as we've suffered through our own Lenten sacrifices, we should have been meditating on the Passion, compassionating with Our Lord. I hope we have. I hope I have. But I admit it's hard to persevere ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2015/03/feast-of-our-ladys-seven-sorrows.html

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. It's funny--and a tad embarrassing--that after all these years of praying the LOTH, and having read through the General Instruction of the Liturgy of the Hours numerous times, and having written a book that purports to show lay people how to pray it in accordance with the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/_Dk7bbSOWVY/saints-memorials-during-lent.html

Friday, March 27, 2015 FR. CARMEN MELE, O.P.: TODAY'S HOMILETTE - March 26, 2015 Friday of the Fifth Week in Lent (Jeremiah 20:10-13; John 10:31-42) Among the gestures made in church we bow to the altar. Some perhaps think that they are reverencing the tabernacle which is often placed behind the altar. But the altar itself is a symbol of Jesus. We bow to him. The gospel today indicates the association. The setting is the Jewish feast of the dedication of the temple altar. Jesus has come to Jerusalem ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2015/03/friday-march-27-2015.html

It proclaims the gospel story of Mary's acceptance of God's offer to be the mother of His Son, Jesus. He will fulfill God's ancient promise to Israel of a king who will rule forever with peace and prosperity. We should not hesitate to have a glass of wine today and perhaps a sweet roll with coffee. But beyond breaking our fast, we do well to relate the significance of ...http://cbmdominicanpreacher.blogspot.com/2015/03/wedensday-march-25-2015.html

Keep Lent Holy! FRANCISCAN SISTERS OF LITTLE FALLS: LIFE AT THE CONVENT - March 18, 2015 We experienced beautiful springs days last week…and getting a good rain today would make it really be spring. My prayer is for rain: gentle and sufficient to replenish what is lacking for moisture in the soil. I am still looking for the first dandelion. Last week was National Catholic Sisters Week. On Thursday our dear Employees honored us Sisters with a special morning treat and a short program. We each received a little ribbon-wrapped scroll. Mine ...http://smarylou.blogspot.com/2015/03/keep-lent-holy.html

Today, in the midst of the season of Lent, is as good a day as any to ask these same two questions of ourselves. What guides my life? What do I wish to bequeath to those I meet? Our answers ought to be the same as those of Saint Patrick; we ought to be guided in all things by the glory of God and we should ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/ida0qBE5t9Y/the-glory-of-saint-patrick.html

Fr. Perrone: Reflections on Penitential Discipline Mid-Way Through Lent MUSINGS OF A PERTINACIOUS PAPIST - March 16, 2015 ... years I've maintained a certain childlike (my detractors would say 'childish') attitude towards Lent. I still believe in the value of penitential practices of self-denial, such as giving up desserts and sweets (a favorite thing in Lent for kids in my day), fasting for the forty days (as adults once did in former times), and the avoidance of entertainments. When modernity hit the Church, in the later '60s and after, such things were regarded with disdain, as ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2015/03/fr-perrone-reflections-on-penitential.html

Who's Up for a Happy Ending? GETTING TO THE POINT - March 15, 2015 My time in Vancouver is proving to be a challenge on the blogging front - lots of energy and time spent in other directions, quite properly. We had a wonderful day of recollection for young women yesterday; today we have (of course) the Sunday Masses and a few other things happening to boot. So, in lieu of a 'normal' blog post, here is my homily for the 4th Sunday of Lent--Laetare Sunday--after the break. Enjoy! Traditionally this Sunday ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/03/whos-up-for-happy-ending.html

(I know, Lord, that was only 4 days!) So, I offer you my sketchy record here and ask you to forgive my unkept Lenten pledges… I acknowledge my lack of self-discipline and how I excuse myself so ...http://concordpastor.blogspot.com/2015/03/pause-for-prayer-sunday-315.html

Laetare Sunday NEW HORIZONS - March 14, 2015 Laetare Sunday and Mothering Sunday How is your Lenten journey progressing? Are you feeling weary and ready for a little break? In Lent, we have the tradition to have a mid-Lent break, (the half way point of Lent), which is known as 'Laetare' Sunday derived from the latin 'to rejoice'. Liturgically we break away from the Lenten penitential spirit of the purple vestments to the wearing of rose-coloured ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/pGvP/~3/qSEZW-ta35w/laetare-sunday.html
