St. Scholastica ATONEMENTONLINE - February 9, 2017 (Mass at Montecassino, in the Crypt Chapel where Ss. Benedict and Scholastica are buried) Twins often share the same interests and ideas with an equal intensity. Therefore, it is no surprise that Scholastica and her twin brother, Benedict, both established religious communities within a few miles from each other. The twins were born in 480 of wealthy parents. Scholastica and Benedict were brought up together until he left for Rome to continue his studies. We don't know ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2017/02/st-scholastica.html

The Liturgical Rollercoaster: A Recent Proposal for 14 "Improvements" to the TLM NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - February 6, 2017 ... Latin Mass Be Improved—And Should It Even Be Attempted?" Before I go into the 14 items, I will say that I appreciate Fr. Stravinskas' honesty in admitting that the Novus Ordo has almost nothing to do with what the Council Fathers described in Sacrosanctum Concilium, even though we also know that Bugnini and Co. created enough loopholes in the document to drive a fleet of lorries through it. Without further ado: 1. Adoption of the revised lectionary It is ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/P5tmLQ58zlY/the-liturgical-rollercoaster-recent.html

Candlemas Day - February 2nd CLERICAL WHISPERS - February 1, 2017 ... olden times, many people used to say that the Christmas season lasted for forty days - until the second day of February. It was the day of the year when all the candles, that were used in the church during the coming year, were brought into church and a blessing was said over them - so it was the Festival Day (or 'mass') of the Candles . Candles were important in those days not only because there was no electric lights. Some people thought ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/candlemas-day-february-2nd.html

Want to Know the History Behind Today's Feast of the Epiphany? CLERICAL WHISPERS - January 6, 2017 While the hustle and bustle of Christmas ends for many people on Dec. 26, throughout Christian history Christmas lasts for twelve days – all the way until Jan. 6. This feast marking the end of Christmas is called "Epiphany." In the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, Epiphany celebrates the revelation that Jesus was the Son of God. It focuses primarily on this revelation to the Three Wise Men, but also in his baptism in the Jordan and at the wedding at Cana.

"Don't Know Where to Begin/Living in Sin" on Epiphany Καθολικός διάκονος - January 6, 2017 ... the end of the liturgical season of Christmas. U.S. Catholics will celebrate Epiphany this Sunday. Christmas for us will end, with something of a thud, on Monday with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Epiphany marks the day when the magi, or "wise men," from the East made their way to Bethlehem to pay tribute to the newborn King of kings. We say there were three, traditionally given the names Caspar, Balthazar, and Melchior, because they offered the holy infant three ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/01/dont-know-where-to-beginliving-in-sin.html

Small wonder, then, that the Gospel readings for both feasts in the traditional Roman calendar are the same. Some Western traditions, such as Anglican and Lutheran, celebrate both on the first of January, as did the Roman for quite some time -- you know, being the eighth day and all. And speaking of names ... I once heard a comedian pose this important ...http://manwithblackhat.blogspot.com/2017/01/christ-mass-day-9-holy-name-of-jesus.html

An Appeal for the Heart That Conquered Death: Reflections for a Catholic New Year A CATHOLIC LIFE - January 1, 2017 ... understand what the Church truly teaches on a matter, which does require extensive mental prayer, studying from approved Catholic sources, and personal penance. Without the Sacraments and finding the oasis of prayer in a desert of sin, we will wither up and die. We must all learn to balance our zealous urge to teach with a desire to learn from the one true teacher, the Lord. Most supreme of all Sacraments is the Most Holy Eucharist, the consecrated bread and wine from Mass, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/8p_U26e9w6s/an-appeal-for-heart-that-conquered.html

Faith and Action GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - December 28, 2016 Wednesday greetings from the quiet "home office" of WLP and J.S. Paluch here in Franklin Park, IL. Well, I decided I needed to do something concrete yesterday after writing my post here. So, I wrote a letter to Chicago's Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Wanted to share it with you. I hope to receive an answer from His Honor and, if I do, I'll share that here as well. I am learning, even at 58, that in order to be a person of faith, I ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2016/12/faith-and-action.html

Fifty-Three People Shot; Eleven Fatally GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - December 27, 2016 Tuesday greetings to all. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I went to the 8:00 A.M. Mass at my parish, Old Saint Patrick's. There was a small choir, a string quartet and woodwinds. It was lovely. A few very strong male voices around me in the pews added to the wonder of the music. Fr. Ed Foley preached a moving homily centered on the reality that we cannot celebrate Christmas without knowing the whole story; that, in a sense, ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2016/12/fifty-three-people-shot-eleven-fatally.html

Today is a day when I violate every principle I hold dear, and attempt to go shopping on the day after Christmas. In my humble defense, it is mainly to cash in on great prices for Christmas-related material, specifically Nativity-scene ornaments for the expanding collection on the tree at Chez Alexandre . Next year's rendition will look even brighter to celebrate the birth of Our Savior. I love to show this video of the á capella ...http://manwithblackhat.blogspot.com/2016/12/christ-mass-day-2-st-stephenboxing-day.html

The Fourth Sunday in Advent IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY: SET THE WORLD ABLAZE - December 14, 2016 ... After reciting the genealogy of Joseph beginning with Abraham, we expect a simple, realistic story to line up, but we get something completely different: a virgin mother and an honorable man urged by an angel to take a pregnant woman who was overpowered by a Spirit as his wife. Certainly, God did not choose an easy, predictable route for Jesus to be born. It makes for a good story that is easy to pass on through generations, but everything had to line up correctly for the ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-fourth-sunday-in-advent.html

It cannot be held that God did not know Adam's physical location; to make such a claim of the omniscient Creator would be absurd. It is, rather, as Saint Ambrose says: the Lord poses "not a question, but a reproof."

Over the weekend, people seemed to be moving into "the Holiday Season Mode" decorating inside and outside of their houses.
