7 Quick Takes, Vol. 24: Favorite Music Edition JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - July 31, 2015 Since I've had some pretty heavy blog posts lately I've decided to end this month with a fun post. It's been almost 8 months since I last did a 7 Quick Takes post so why not now? I often joke that music was my first love because I can't remember a time when I wasn't surrounded by it. When I was a tiny gal, I used to strum ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/07/7-quick-takes-vol-24-favorite-music.html

Godfather.... Erm, Godmother... Godparent? SCELATA - July 30, 2015 The selection by parents of godparents has become a very debased procedure in the Church in this country, as far as I can observe. In what I take, (from movies and tv,) to be the Anglican/British understanding, godparents are chosen as a way to honor ones friend or relative, and insure the receipt of sterling baby mugs, so really, the more the merrier, let's get some swag! And that is the way far too many Catholics look on the proceedings in this country. ...http://scelata.blogspot.com/2015/07/god-father-erm-god-mother-godparent.html

Preparing for a Weekend Away KATHLEEN M. BASI - July 27, 2015 We're preparing for a weekend away in this house—a weekend without the kids. I'm really excited about it. And also anxious, apparently: I spent last night having nightmares about all the things that might happen to my children while both of us are gone. The last one involved Nazis, so that at least helped me recognize the irrationality of my worries. As you might imagine, it took a lot of time and mental energy to ...http://kathleenbasi.com/2015/07/27/preparing-for-a-weekend-away/

So, go ahead mom and dad, hug and smooch away in front of the kids, it's fine. Um, might want to make sure you're not brandishing a needle in front of their eyes at the time, though. ...http://b-moviecat.blogspot.com/2015/07/cutaways-metamorphosis-alien-factor.html

Quick Lessons From the Catechism: The Sacrament of Baptism TOM PERNA - July 26, 2015 Over the course of my life, I have been blessed to be Godfather to a variety of my family and friend's children on the day they receive the Sacrament of Baptism. After a very difficult beginning to 2015, this past month will be a month I won't soon forget. Two weeks ago I was Godfather to my friend's little girl, and this afternoon, on what would have been Dad's 68 th ...http://tomperna.org/2015/07/26/quick-lessons-from-the-catechism-the-sacrament-of-baptism/

Seven Quick Takes About the Seven Sacraments THIS THAT AND THE OTHER THING - July 24, 2015 ... for us and we learned nothing about baptism that I hadn't taught my third grade religion class that year. The preparation seminar seemed like a "hoop", nothing more. It seems to me that this could be a time to welcome a couple who hasn't been attending church regularly and to offer community support but instead of the meals for new moms that some Protestant churches furnish, our parish only offered a bad class. Reconciliation The sacrament we love to hate. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/ngaR/~3/iNKnAM5gMX0/seven-quick-takes-about-seven-sacraments.html

Poldark, Episode Five: A Baby Changes Everything RANDOM ACTS OF MOMNESS - July 20, 2015 ... gripping even though the romantic leads have already gotten hitched. Part of this is due to the little hints that maybe Ross still sees Elizabeth in a fond light, which makes me wonder where, if anywhere, these not-quite-buried feelings will go (I've read the first three novels in the series but I have no idea what happens after that). I will say that if he does ANYthing to disrespect Demelza, he will suffer a swiftly dramatic fall from grace ...http://randomactsofmomness.com/poldark-episode-five-a-baby-changes-everything/

Relating Ourselves to Indirect Knowledge, Pt. 2 LIFE'S PRIVATE BOOK - July 18, 2015 In part 1of this series, I began a discussion of how we can use reason to relate ourselves to indirect knowledge . Indirect knowledge is, briefly, knowledge that we ourselves do not know the immediate reasons for its truth. Instead, someone else knows the reasons, and we are related to that knowledge through them by their mediation. Examples include complicated mathematical proofs (like the one recently demonstrated for Fermat's Last Theorem). We might not be able to follow ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/LifesPrivateBook/~3/a0qgqQ3bFWw/relating-ourselves-to-indirect.html

"He Was the First Priest to Make It Clear to Me That Moralism Gets in the Way of True Faith, and That..." INVICEM SUNT - July 16, 2015 "He was the first priest to make it clear to me that moralism gets in the way of true faith, and that we American Catholics were almost uniquely cursed with a moralistic understanding of our faith. He taught me that the teachings of the Church can truly liberate but only if they are first credible to the person seeking liberation, and that the authenticity of that liberation was itself the confirmation of the teachings of the Church: No one was more free ...http://invicemsunt.tumblr.com/post/124250132969

When Kat Fernandez posted Dr. Hyman's article on her timeline yesterday, I confess my first reaction was rather intemperate ("Really? How uncharacteristic!"): " Ever wish the entire medical community would just STFU with their warnings until they get their s***t straight? " And the fact that it got a slew of "Likes" depresses me a bit. I ...http://impracticalcatholic.blogspot.com/2015/07/warning-food-is-bad-for-your-health.html

The First Mass on Our Property ATONEMENTONLINE - July 8, 2015 ... di Paola Church, in downtown San Antonio. It is a lovely little place, built by Italian immigrants, but the location was ill-suited for us. Everyone had to travel quite a distance, and it was difficult to build up our parish life in a place which was fairly remote for all of us. So I began to look for some land. It seemed to me that the future growth of San Antonio would be taking place on the northwest side of the city. Everything pointed to it, and that has indeed come to ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2015/07/the-first-mass-on-our-property.html

Going to the Father, Part 1: Liturgy As Evangelization MONASTERY OF THE HOLY CROSS - July 6, 2015 We are preparing to have a new choir constructed and installed in our church. I have been invited by Fr. Anthony Ruff, OSB, at Pray Tell Blog , to offer some explanation of the theology behind the shape and placement of the choir. As a prelude to this project, and to give the fullest possible context, I would like to tell the story of our liturgical development, from the foundation of the monastery to the installation of the choir. This story begins with ...http://chicagomonk.org/about-us/the-priors-blog/going-to-the-father-part-1-liturgy-as-evangelization/

Live Prophetically Καθολικός διάκονος - July 5, 2015 Readings: Ezk 2:2-5; Ps 121:1-4; 2 Cor 12:7-10; Mark 6:1-6 You'd think with one of my three favorite passages from the New Testament apart from the Gospels ( 2 Cor 12:7-10 - the other two are Romans 12:1-2 and Phil 2:3-11 ) as one of the readings for today it would be easier to post a reflection on our readings for this Fourteenth Sunday if Ordinary Time, but it is not. It is important to note in our passage from 2 Corinthians that Paul actually quotes our risen Lord as ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/07/live-prophetically.html

Various Retreat Models AVE MARIA PRESS BLOG - June 23, 2015 As you probably know from your own personal retreat experiences, there are many different ways to "retreat" with teens who are participating in a Confirmation, youth ministry, or campus ministry retreat. However, depending on the group and circumstances, some models definitely work better than others do. Here are a few options: Two-Day Overnight Retreat. This is usually an ideal option for a group. A weekend allows time for the relationships among teens and adults to develop ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/EngagingFaith/~3/7m2TSt0yEgU/

Baptism, Confirmation and Reconciliation THE ONE TRUE FAITH - June 16, 2015 I have a[ guest blogger today. It is Mr. Paul Hanlon, o.p. He writes on Baptism, Confirmation and Reconciliation. Baptism, Confirmation and Reconciliation are woven into our lives. We are baptised and confirmed only once yet we continue to receive the gifts and live out these two sacraments all the days of our lives, with reconciliation as our spiritual health care. In addition to the gifts of the Holy Spirit that the Catholic Church cites, ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2015/06/baptism-confirmation-and-reconciliation.html

Why Lowering the Age of Confirmation Makes Sense CRISIS MAGAZINE - June 3, 2015 This past Pentecost Sunday, Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila of Denver announced that the age for the reception of Confirmation would be lowered to seven. In addition, the archbishop said that he would restore the sacrament's former place in between Baptism and First Communion. In his pastoral letter " Saints Among Us ," he explains his reasons for making the change, especially from the standpoint of theology. The archbishop quotes Pope Benedict XVI, who in Sacramentum ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/p_VWEc726Wo/why-lowering-the-age-of-confirmation-makes-sense

Time to Question Inevitability of Gay "Marriage" CRISIS MAGAZINE - June 2, 2015 ... But whenever marriage wins at the ballot box, the left immediately begins speculating: shall we try again in the next election cycle, or the one after that? If marriage loses (even narrowly!), it's over and they have won. Imagine setting up a sports championship with those sorts of rules. "If the Cleveland Cavaliers win, we'll schedule another game. We'll just keep doing that until the Golden State Warriors win one, and then we'll crown them the victors and go home." LeBron James is an amazing ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/RUmfBcnAj4U/time-to-question-inevitability-of-gay-marriage

Why Catholics Don't Wait Until Adulthood to Baptize PRO CARITATE VERITATIS - May 31, 2015 Why do some Protestants wait until they are adults to get baptized? The difference in our practices stems from the difference in our understandings of Baptism. Since the beginning of the Church, we have understood that Baptism actually affects us. It is something that God does to us. Protestants (in one way or another) have rejected the idea that the Sacraments actually do stuff to us. Depending on the denomination, they may be closer or farther from the full truth of ...http://procaritateveritatis.blogspot.com/2015/05/why-catholics-dont-wait-until-adulthood.html
