Prayer on a Friday Morning Καθολικός διάκονος - October 9, 2015 ... Rosary, I stayed and prayed. After praying up to the first Sorrowful mystery, instead remaining in place sitting or kneeling, I decided to pray while walking in a circle around the church looking at the stained glass windows, which I love, and, more particularly, the Stations of the Cross. The parish church where I now serve is a contemporary church building. It was built in the late 1960s. I have no doubt many of my fellow Catholics would ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/10/prayer-on-friday-morning.html

Newspaper Column, Consolations and Faith PONDER THESE THINGS IN YOUR HEART - August 20, 2015 Something that holds me back in my faith, my walk with the Lord, is my need for consolations. What are consolations? They are the comforts that we receive from the Lord from time to time to let us know that He is there. Are these bad? Of course not! As I live my life, I know I need them. If I didn't get these little reassurances from the Lord, I can easily be lost. When we feel that the Lord is NOT with us, we can interpret this as the ...http://ponderintheheart.blogspot.com/2015/08/newspaper-column-consolations-and-faith.html

Reflection for Feast of St. Alphonsus CONTEMPLATIVE HORIZON - August 1, 2015 ... in love with us. This is the God he called "Iddio Pazzo" the crazy God, the crazy God of love, who is insanely in love with us. He wrote, "Heaven for God is the human heart." But here is another thing that is hard to understand. This preacher of God's love, this theologian who bucked the popular tide of rigorism and Jansenism, who opposed sterile legalism because, according to him such rigor was never the true teaching of the Church; this was a man who was plagued all his very long life of 91 ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/eqyj/~3/Lf-luMMXPq8/reflection-for-feast-of-st-alphonsus_1.html
