January's Almost Gone... P R WOMAN FOR CHRIST - January 28, 2015 This apparently is my first blog post for 2015. Last Sunday the young priest who celebrated Mass in our chapel strongly suggested that all of us in the congregation should blog about the Faith. I made a mental resolve, "today I will take up my blog." However as you see, I did not keep the resolve. Thanks for your patience in waiting for my posts in this new year. I wrote a blog entry for our Pauline website. Just glancing at the daily newspaper can be cause ...http://prwomanforchrist.blogspot.com/2015/01/januarys-almost-gone.html

Purgatory - The Purification Center TIME FOR REFLECTIONS - January 24, 2015 ... and friends? How long do souls stay in Purgatory? Is it a day for every venial sin? A week? A month? Longer? How many days off do they gain when we pray for these souls or celebrate Mass for them? What does Purgatory look like? Does it have a fire like hell? Is it hot or cold there? Or is it perhaps just warm so you feel uncomfortable but you don't burn? Does it have devils ...http://timeforreflections.blogspot.com/2015/01/purgatory-purification-center.html

A HAPPY AND HOLY CHRISTMAS TO ALL WHO USE THE JULIAN CALENDAR & ... MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - January 6, 2015 A HAPPY AND HOLY CHRISTMAS TO ALL WHO USE THE JULIAN CALENDAR & MAY GOD MANIFEST HIS DIVINE PRESENCE AMONG ALL OF US IN THESE DAYS. Epiphany The feast of the Epiphany is one of my favourite feasts; but, paradoxically, if I want to express what the feast means to me as a Catholic, I tend to use Orthodox texts as the least inadequate means of doing so, especially when I want to wish a "happy feast" to both Catholics and Orthodox. That explains my choice of texts for ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2015/01/a-happy-holy-christmas-to-all-who-use.html

Solemnity of the Epiphany, Cycle B LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - January 4, 2015 Traditionally, the time from December 25 th , the Solemnity of Christmas and January 5 th , was seen as the 12 days of Christmas. The night of the 5 th was also known as Twelfth Night, since it marked the 12 th and final night of Christmas. It was also a time of great celebration and when people would go wassailing, which was a way of greeting someone during the Christmas season in song, essentially wishing them good health for the year. Also common was role reversal. In ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2015/01/solemnity-of-epiphany-cycle-b.html

Christ-Mass: Day 11 (Not Epiphany) MAN WITH BLACK HAT - January 4, 2015 ... (universally) the Second Sunday After Christmas, or (in the Dioceses of the USA and elsewhere) the Solemnity of the Epiphany. Why the latter, you ask? This is a judgment by a competent territorial body of bishops. In this instance, the term "competent" is used guardedly. You see, they think you are entirely too lazy to celebrate anything on a weekday. So they make it convenient for ...http://manwithblackhat.blogspot.com/2015/01/christ-mass-day-11-not-epiphany.html

Christ-Mass: Day 9 (The Holy Name of Jesus) MAN WITH BLACK HAT - January 2, 2015 ... fifth of the month, don't ask me why. (NOTE: This year the feast is on a Sunday, the fourth of the month, but we have something special planned for that. Stay tuned ...) Historically, the observance of this feast has been all over the place until nearly one hundred years ago. The circumcision of a newborn male under Jewish law must take place eight days after the child's birth, at which time he is given his name. Small wonder, then, that the ...http://manwithblackhat.blogspot.com/2015/01/christ-mass-day-9-holy-name-of-jesus.html

Pope St. John Paul II: The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God CATHOLIC FIRE - January 1, 2015 Happy New Year, and a blessed Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God! What a special feast day this is! On this first day of 2015, just eight days after the feast of the birth of Christ, we remember the Blessed Virgin Mary by celebrating her divine motherhood. As the Mother of God, her greatest title, Mary is known as Theotokus, which means the "God-Bearer". It is appropriate to honor Mary as Mother of Jesus, following the birth of Christ. When ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2015/01/pope-st-john-paul-ii-solemnity-of-mary.html

Jesus' Circumcision and Mary's Motherhood (January 1 Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - January 1, 2015 There are actually three things we recall on this feast day, and none of them has anything to do with the New Year. First is the circumcision of Jesus; second is his naming; and third, is the Motherhood of Mary. According to the law of Moses, a boy was to be circumcised on the eighth day; and at that time, he receives his name publicly. This is what observant Jews do to this day. Now, we don't talk much about the circumcision of the Lord, but there are ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2015/01/jesus-circumcision-and-marys-motherhood.html

IN THE MORNING BEFORE THE HOLY FACE DEVOTION On this morning just days prior to the beginning of the newest year, before leaving for the church to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, our Lord has you formally consecrate your home and family to the Work of Reparation to the Holy Face of Jesus. He has you accomplish this in the same way that a formal ...http://godisatworkinyou.blogspot.com/2015/01/a-brand-new-year-of-guaranteed-graces.html

Upon an attempt to kill John by poisoning his wine, the evil substance miraculously took the form of a serpent, as it dissipated from his cup. Here he is in a circa 1610 painting by El Greco with a look that says: "Dude, seriously? This is the best you can do?" Today, families can celebrate the Feast of Saint John by drinking to the health of each ...http://manwithblackhat.blogspot.com/2014/12/christ-mass-day-3-st-john.html

What Kind of Priest Thought It Was Good to Whitewash, Trash Statues, Tear Out Altars? FR. Z'S BLOG - December 19, 2014 ... spend our summers, the faithful at Mass have been instructed to kneel only during the first part of the consecration. When they return from Communion, they're to remain standing until every communicant is back in his seat. Then they invariably sit down. So there's no kneeling in silent prayer . That standing is supposed to stress the "community" of believers. [B as in B. S as in S.

Ottawa-Gatineau Holy Canadian Martyrs Church, 3 rd Sunday Advent, Gaudete ("B")-December 14, 2014 Introduction to the Mass In preparation for our celebration today, I reread St. Isaac Jogues account of the life and death of your patron, St. Rene Goupil. The first of the Canadian Martyrs to be put to death, he's a real hero as a man and as a Christian! As a hearing-impaired person in the 17 th century, he was dissuaded from the Jesuit program ...http://archbishopterry.blogspot.com/2014/12/sunday-eucharist-with-st-rene-goupil.html

Celebrating the O Antiphons :: The Golden Nights SHOWER OF ROSES - December 12, 2014 ... treats, representing each of the "O Antiphons," on the days leading up to Christmas. The O Antiphon Prayers begin on December 17th and end on the 23rd, which is the last Vespers of Advent, since the evening prayer on the 24th is the Vigil of Christmas. The Benedictine monks arranged these antiphons with a definite purpose.

Archbishop Aquila: How Catholic Feasts Are Different DA MIHI ANIMAS - December 10, 2014 ... filled with celebrations, but do we really understand how Catholic feasts are more than religious parties? It is easy to treat Christmas or other liturgical feasts as only a celebration of Mass, food, family and gifts, so this week I am going to discuss the Catholic understanding of celebrating feast days. I hope that all who read this column will become more engaged in Advent and usher in Christmas with a deeper joy. The word "holiday" comes ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2014/12/archbishop-aquila-how-catholic-feasts.html

Will the Real St. Nicholas Please Stand Up? ARE WE THERE YET? - December 6, 2014 ... clerical vestments may not have differed at all from his street clothes , as this differentiation didn't start to occur until after the time of Constantine, well into the fourth century, and wasn't regularized throughout the Church until a couple centuries after the death of St. Nicholas. Don't be mistaken, though, as iconography and symbolism are important ingredients of our Faith, it's logical and appropriate that St. Nicholas is almost ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2014/12/will-real-st-nicholas-please-stand-up.html

You shouldn't worry though. The liturgy - the prayer of the Church - Holy Mass, the readings and the prayers - this is the real 'stuff' of Advent. If you pray - you know that.

Homily for Today G-MANS JOURNEY - November 23, 2014 ... Today, by the grace of the heavenly Father and the power of the Holy Spirit, we have been called and moved to celebrate the very special Feast of Christ the King. Although Christ has always been recognized by the Holy, Catholic and apostolic Church as the King of kings, the Feast of "Christ the King" did not receive its official recognition until its institution in 1925 by Pope Pius XI. Reviewing the kingship of the Lord, the title of King goes back quite far in biblical ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2014/11/homily-for-today_23.html

Abp. Viganó: You Were Born for Eternal Glory, Not for Glamour, or Guns, or Sensationalism! SERVANT AND STEWARD - November 11, 2014 ... the life of a saint is an incredible way to comfort the elderly in approaching the final struggle and trial of death. I remember when I was reading the life of St. Frances Cabrini to my mother as I assisted her in her last days. What a contrast for someone who takes their own life into their hands, for example, through suicide and euthanasia, which leaves no hope and future for those who accept and submit themselves to the dark culture of our times. The life ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/4MdD_quYxno/abp-vigano-you-were-born-for-eternal.html
