Lent Is About Baptism A CATHOLIC MOM IN HAWAII - February 11, 2016 Brother John M. Samaha, S.M. For those of a certain age Lent raises memories of giving up something we enjoyed – candy, movies, and other things we liked especially. The old sense of Lent saw this time as one of self-imposed penance and spiritual discipline. The religious expression of the season took the form of the Stations of the Cross, daily Mass, and other devotional practices. The general feeling that prevailed ...http://hicatholicmom.blogspot.com/2016/02/lent-is-about-baptism.html

My Journey With the Stations of the Cross ~ a Walk of Mercy CATHOLIC HOTDISH - February 10, 2016 ... it is Lent, it seems like a good time to lay out the truth. Here goes: For as long as I can remember, I have never liked praying the Stations of the Cross! I mean I never "got" it. As a child, I remember waiting out the time repeating words I didn't understand. Later, when I taught physical education at a Catholic school, I jokingly called it "Catholic aerobics." Stand, genuflect, kneel, repeat. I suppose, as with other beautiful Catholic devotions I didn't ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CatholicHotdish/~3/n5fvn390oR8/

Pastor's Descant " [temporary link] ( Assumption Grotto News , February 7, 2016) [emphasis mine]: You were pre-warned of Lent's approach and we are soon made to face it. I want this coming season to be profitable for you. A word needs be said about the meaning of it all. Why do we go through the annual exercise of Lent?

The Ten Commandments of Lent for Moms AND SOMETIMES TEA - February 8, 2016 ... there that I didn't have back when I was a younger mom, so in a spirit of solidarity and encouragement I share the following "ten commandments of Lent" just for moms: 1. Thou shalt not feel guilty when you can't do Stations of the Cross (etc.) with a baby . One of the weird things about becoming a mom is that those early Lents just sort of fly by just like every other season with a baby: up during the night, up again absurdly early, spending ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2016/02/the-ten-commandments-of-lent-for-moms.html

Guest Commentary: Concerned Catholics at Marquette Climate Study Forum MARQUETTE WARRIOR - December 18, 2015 ... supportive of the effort, and with his help we secured a meeting date of December 2. We had about 20 faculty and staff attend the meeting which, I'm told, was one of the largest among these special-constituency climate study forums. Our discussion was open and frank. The most urgent issue concerned academic freedom and how the articulation of Catholic teaching, inside and outside of the classroom, particularly on issues of sexuality, is increasingly met with ...http://mu-warrior.blogspot.com/2015/12/guest-commentary-concerned-catholics-at.html

To Be Like Veronica ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - December 7, 2015 Veronica. The name probably rouses thoughts of the Stations of the Cross, as is natural. Just after Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry His heavy load, and just prior to His second fall, a simple character emerges from the blood-thirsty crowd to perform a magnificent act. With feminine gentleness, Veronica removes the veil from her head and offers Our Lord what little relief possible, soaking up the blood and sweat from His eyes and face. No doubt, the blood ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2015/12/to-be-like-veronica.html

Celebrating the Jubilee Year of Mercy in My Home HEART OF A MOTHER - December 4, 2015 ... our catechesis for the spring semester in our homeschool (currently teaching grades 7, 5, & K). You will notice the second half of the year is not yet planned. That's called margin! I deliberately did not choose themes or activities yet, so I can see how the year goes and complete those plans as we go (just like I only plan one term of homeschool lessons at a time!). Prices are next to items I don't already personally own and need to purchase, although most of the ...http://heartofamother.blogspot.com/2015/12/celebrating-jubilee-year-of-mercy-in-my.html

This and That, Thanks and Prayers G-MANS JOURNEY - December 1, 2015 ... leave from work to be with her mom at the end as much as possible. On to my pat peeve and that is my current parish. I really like the parish priest and his homilies but the overall demeanor of the parish is hard to digest. This past Sunday was hard. I honestly thought I was in an arena at a sporting event. Only thing missing were some vendors selling drinks and snacks. The noise level before and after mass unreal. Also very bothersome is the amount of people who after communion leave and the ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2015/12/this-and-that-thanks-and-prayers.html
