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

Preparing the Way ... To Accept the Anti-Christ. ABBEY ROADS - June 6, 2015 ... re-order creation - that's the essence of witchcraft - it is paganism, idolatry. We make ourselves God - that is what the New Age promotes. Therefore God can be a she. When God is called mother - when liturgical prayers are addressed to God as mother - that is anti-Christ. It is regressive - leading back to Magna Mater - Great Mother, Goddess worship. Jesus revealed the Father - he called God Father. To go against that is anti-Christ. To go against nature - to redefine gender, ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2015/06/preparing-way-to-accept-anti-christ.html

St. John the Evangelist Parish and the Shrine of the Passion of Christ in St. John, Indiana IMPRISONED IN MY BONES - May 24, 2015 ... "Wow!" Prior to leaving the house in the morning, my family and I gave some thought to the prayer intentions that we would be offering on this pilgrimage. Since May 23rd is the ordination anniversary of Fr. Luke Strand, the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, and since he has been suffering for so long with the effects of colon cancer, I thought it would be fitting to offer the day for him. Although a trip out of town is always a fun occasion, a pilgrimage is ...http://annebender.blogspot.com/2015/05/st-john-evangelist-parish-and-shrine-of.html

Sin Is Big! A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - May 18, 2015 After morning Mass at this church I attended as a visitor, I entered the basement chapel to meditate and pray. Afterwards I checked out the Stations of the Cross. At the 7th Station, I read "Jesus exhorts the women to weep not for him but for themselves; weep more for our sins than his sufferings." Jesus really makes a big point here (cf. Luke 23.28). Sin is a big thing ~ it offends God and can destroy us. It is to be avoided at all costs! ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2015/05/sin-is-big.html

Sunday in the Octave of the Ascension 1863 THE MUNIMENT ROOM - May 16, 2015 ... Paschal fire: but it is still richer and fuller of symbolism than the modern Holy Saturday. (The Vigil takes place, of course, in the morning.) On the Vigil Catholics will fast in preparation because Pentecost is one of the great feasts. Anachronistically, please pray for the Catholic pilgrims we know from the blogosphere who will begin this week to march towards Chartres, before we next explore 1863: they are physically proclaiming and ...http://ttonys-blog.blogspot.com/2015/05/sunday-in-octave-of-ascension-1863.html
