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

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

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. 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

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

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
