The Raising of Lazarus in the Liturgy of Lent NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - March 28, 2015 Until the first part of the eighth century, the Thursdays of Lent were "aliturgical" days in the Roman Rite, days on which no ferial Mass was celebrated. A similar custom prevails to this day in the Ambrosian and Byzantine Rites, the former abstaining from the Eucharistic Sacrifice on all the Fridays in Lent, the latter on all the weekdays. I have described in another article why Pope St Gregory II (715-31) changed this ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/Ico4GuEXisM/the-raising-of-lazarus-in-liturgy-of.html

Father Gordon MacRae, the Sorrowful Mysteries and the Big Picture FREEDOM THROUGH TRUTH - March 15, 2015 ... Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the Catholic Church, we usually baptize infants, and the sprinkling of some water on their head three times is symbolic of what actually transpires. What is missed usually, and can be so for their entire lifetime is that this now baptized Christian has been immersed into the ocean of the mercy of Jesus Christ, and into the significance of Jesus Death and Resurrection in the life of the baptized. When we speak of ...http://freethroughtruth.blogspot.com/2015/03/father-gordon-macrae-sorrowful.html

Lettre Pour Carême-Lenten Letter THE JOURNEY OF A BISHOP - February 17, 2015 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: For years Catholics have been asking each other as Lent approaches: What are you doing for Lent? What are you giving up ? This year, don't ask what you can do for Lent; ask, rather what Lent can do for you! The graces of Lent, you see, are all God's doing. All we need to do is open ourselves to them. Some well ...http://archbishopterry.blogspot.com/2015/02/lettre-pour-careme-lenten-letter.html

Can an Infant Receive Baptism During the Lenten Season? SERVANT AND STEWARD - February 13, 2015 Earlier today I received a question asking, "Is it a common or even legit thing to not do (infant) baptisms during Lent?" The short answer to the first question is, "It depends on the parish." The short answer to the second question is, "No." It seems to have become rather commonplace in the last couple of decades for most parishes not to baptize babies during the season of Lent but to wait until the Easter season. Is this practice legitimate? Let us first consult the Rite ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/vuaskbaCYQU/on-lenten-baptisms.html

St. Scholastica ATONEMENTONLINE - February 9, 2015 (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/2015/02/st-scholastica.html

More Ways to End the Vocations Crisis CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 5, 2015 ... Catholics are content with strategies of suicide, because they do not really want the Church to prevail in her war against a world deranged. Since in our day the derangement is most obviously about things having to do with marriage, sex, children, the family, and those differences between men and women that are attested and variously respected by every culture that has ever existed, in every geographical area and at every stage of technological development, ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/QXMqZVQTGZY/vocation-dos-donts

According to Mosaic law, a mother who had given birth to a boy was considered unclean for seven days. Also, she was to remain 33 days "in the blood of her purification."

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

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

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

(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.

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
