Farewell to the Sacrament of Farewell DISPUTATIONS - May 24, 2015 Archbishop Aquila has announced that Denver will restore Confirmation to its proper place -- prior to First Communion -- by 2020. Good for him. Among the challenges are teaching parents that Confirmation isn't a "sacrament of maturity" (or a "sacrament of farewell," as Pope Francis lamented), working out the catechesis necessary and appropriate to prepare seven-year-olds for the sacrament, and figuring out what on earth to do with youth ministry ...http://disputations.blogspot.com/2015/05/farewell-to-sacrament-of-farewell.html

Pentecost FOUNTAIN OF ELIAS - May 24, 2015 ... the more charity it has, the more it is illumined and the more gifts of the Holy Spirit are communicated to it, for charity is the cause and means whereby they are communicated to it." ( Ascent of Mt. Carmel , Book II , Ch. 29) It is through prayer, the sacraments, and good works that we nourish the precious gifts of the Holy Spirit, invoking the Divine Paraclete Himself to inflame us with the fire of perfect charity. "If we do not become saints, it is not because the Holy Spirit does not will ...http://fountainofelias.blogspot.com/2015/05/pentecost.html

A Homily for Today G-MANS JOURNEY - May 24, 2015 ... come to an end, Christ's Passover was fulfilled in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, manifested, given, and communicated as a divine person: of his fullness, Christ, the Lord, poured out the Spirit in abundance." [Acts 2:33-36] (C.C.C. # 731) "'When the work which the Father gave the Son to do on earth was accomplished, the Holy Spirit was sent on the day of Pentecost in order that he might continually sanctify the Church.' [LG 4; Cf. Jn 17:4] Then 'the Church was openly displayed to the ...http://gman59.blogspot.com/2015/05/a-homily-for-today.html

Year B Pentecost Καθολικός διάκονος - May 24, 2015 ... I think it is necessary to point out that there is no more important Christian observance than Easter, which means there is no more important liturgy than the Easter Vigil, which marks the conclusion of the three-day long liturgy that is the Triduum. While you can't have one without the other, Easter trumps Christmas, but so do Ascension and Pentecost. The first Christian Pentecost marked the beginning of the Church, the age of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit came upon ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2015/05/year-b-pentecost.html

The Most Important but Forgotten Person—the Holy Spirit IN GOD'S COMPANY 2 - May 20, 2015 Monday, May 18, 2015 Fr. Brooms Blog It was a laborious and strenuous two years of Confirmation teaching. I had the teen boys, a group I really worked hard to prepare them for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Right around the corner awaited the Bishop to confirm my little flock. Knowing that often the Bishop would ask spontaneous questions to the candidates, I wanted to make ...http://ingodscompany2.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-most-important-but-forgotten.html

Bishop Ratko Perić at Medjugorje: Unity Is More Important Than Charisms CATHOLIC LIGHT - May 20, 2015 Bishop Ratko Perić recently performed the rite of confirmation at St. James parish in the town of Medjugorje, notorious as a site of so-called apparitions. His visits to the parish to perform the rite of Confirmation are often an occasion for him to remind the people of the town that the Catholic faith does not depend on unreliable claims of visions, but on the revelation Christ entrusted to the Church. Here is the homily from his most recent visit, in ...http://catholiclight.stblogs.org/index.php/2015/05/bishop-ratko-peric-at-medjugorje-unity-is-more-important-than-charisms/

Quick Lessons From the Catechism: The Sacraments of Christian Initiation and RCIA TOM PERNA - May 19, 2015 Last night, my first full year of overseeing the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults and Adult Confirmation came to it's conclusion. Although I oversaw RCIA and Adult Confirmation the previous year, this year I developed the curriculum and began and ended the year. Last year, we had a total of 10 Non-Catholics come into the Catholic Church with 13 Catholics receiving the Sacrament ...http://tomperna.org/2015/05/19/quick-lessons-from-the-catechism-the-sacraments-of-christian-initiation-and-rcia/

Of a Phantom Confirmation and a Double-Barreled Question AIRMARIA.COM - May 19, 2015 In my last post , I quoted Fr. Volpi response to the claim that he is no longer able to carry out the function given to him by the Holy See to govern our Institute as the Apostolic Commissioner. He effectively denied it. Since then a further claim has been made that in spite of Fr. Volpi's attestation to the contrary, "he is unable to carry out, both physically and mentally," his duties. The source for this report professes to "confirm" (without ...http://airmaria.com/2015/05/19/of-a-phantom-confirmation-and-a-double-barreled-question/

An Aside on Transferred Days of Obligation CATHOLIC COMMENTARY - May 17, 2015 ... from their previously-customary Thursdays to the following Sundays, I have not had a particularly strong feeling one way or the other about the change. I do have some sympathy for the reasoning of their Lordships at the time that, with a low adherence of the faithful to the practice of the obligations on a Thursday, the transfer to the Sunday would make it easier for the faithful to celebrate these Solemnities. There appears to me to be some ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/05/an-aside-on-transferred-days-of.html

Honolulu to Restore the Sequence of the Initiation Sacraments GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - April 29, 2015 Wednesday greetings from the sunny but cool Midwest. I read with excitement a post yesterday about the bishop of Honolulu, Bishop Larry Silva. You can read the article from their Catholic newspaper here . The bishop is inaugurating a process for the restoration of the order of the sacraments of initiation (Baptism-Confirmation-Eucharist). Many dioceses across Canada and the United States have done so, some with great success, others with limited success or ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2015/04/honolulu-to-restore-sequence-of.html

Bishop Silva to Restore Proper Order of the Sacrametns of Initation SERVANT AND STEWARD - April 28, 2015 Citing the lamentable reality that the Sacrament of Confirmation has become for too many people "the sacrament of farewell," His Excellency the Most Reverend Clarence "Larry" Silva, Bishop of Honolulu is restoring the proper order of the Sacraments of Initiation in his Diocese: Some may point out that we have been doing what we are doing for 100 years, so why change now? The reason is simple: What we are doing is not working very ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/KLRkG2CimaM/bishop-silva-to-restore-proper-order-of.html

Anti-Science DARWINCATHOLIC - April 27, 2015 This NY Times piece by an environmentalist, blasting the anti-GMO movement , seems so delightfully calibrated to ruffle feathers that I can't resist immediately sharing it: Why was there such controversy? Because Mr. Rahman's pest-resistant eggplant was produced using genetic modification. A gene transferred from a soil bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis (more commonly known by the abbreviation "Bt"), produces a protein that kills the Fruit and Shoot Borer, ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2015/04/anti-science.html

4th Sunday of Easter, Cycle B LORD, IF YOU WILL (SUNDAYS AND SOLEMNITIES) - April 26, 2015 ... necessarily our job, but what we feel will, indeed, lead us to holiness, what we know will make us a saint in this life. That is why I am a priest, why Deacon Tony and Deacon Ed are Deacons, why the sisters are sisters, why many are called to become married, and within that many times also called as mothers and fathers and others called to be single, because that state in life, in spite of ...http://lordifyouwill.blogspot.com/2015/04/4th-sunday-of-easter-cycle-b.html

Faith and Courage AIRMARIA.COM - April 21, 2015 ... all, the imminent danger of death. But fortitude, like all the other virtues, is exercised by the will; hence, it is possible to perform courageous acts in spite of our fear. In these cases, courage has a twofold function: it conquers fear and faces the difficult task. Such was the supreme act of fortitude Jesus made in the Garden of Olives when He accepted to drink the bitter chalice of His Passion, in spite of the repugnance of His human nature. It is by uniting ourselves to this act of our ...http://airmaria.com/2015/04/21/faith-and-courage/

7QT About Communion, Confirmation, Coldsores, and Color Coordination MARTIN FAMILY MOMENTS - April 17, 2015 ... is a quiet boy who has said that he wants to be a priest for as long as I can remember. He has been so attentive and wonderfully behaved at Mass since he was 4 years old, and watches the priest and the altar servers like a hawk, memorizing their every move. Once he receives 1st Communion, he is allowed to take part in the Altar Training Bootcamp this summer, and will be an altar server with JP and Andrew, and I think his little heart might burst from the joy. ...http://martinfamilymoments.blogspot.com/2015/04/7qt-about-communion-confirmation.html

St. Bernadette Soubirous: Mystic and Visionary at Lourdes CATHOLIC FIRE - April 16, 2015 ... poverty, health problems, which caused her to be behind in school, many responsibilities as the oldest child of six siblings, moving from one poor place to another, and a father who escaped from his financial problems by drowning them in alcohol. She was educated by the Sisters of Charity and Christian Instruction - a teaching and nursing order whose mother-house is at Nevers, in central France. The Sisters soon discovered that although Bernadette had a quiet, modest demeanor, she also had a ...http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2015/04/st-bernadette-soubirous-mystic-and.html

Divine Mercy Sunday NEW HORIZONS - April 12, 2015 ... want something extra..a sign, a direction, a clue from God. Christ encourages us to walk by faith and not by sight. Today's Gospel highlights Jesus giving the Apostles His power to forgive sin and/or retain them- the start of the sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation. People often say that I can confess my sins straight to God and dont need to go through a priest. However the point is that we are confessing our sins to God, but God in His ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/pGvP/~3/7U51P4tm8-8/divine-mercy-sunday.html

Murphy's Law and Jesus in Hell OUTSIDE THE ASYLUM - April 10, 2015 ... Law and its many derivatives are simply formalizations of a pattern, the observation of which crosses national and cultural boundaries — "If anything can go wrong, it will." The universe, Murphy tells us, takes malicious delight in foiling our efforts. (Harvard's Law: "Under the most rigorously controlled conditions of pressure, temperature, volume, humidity, and other variables, the organism will do as it damn well pleases.") Murphy tells us that we humans are our own worst enemies; ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Outside_The_Asylum/~3/G16DZzb4C3w/murphys-law-and-jesus-in-hell.html

Need a Quick Gift for Someone Receiving a Sacrament in May? LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - April 9, 2015 I just love this time of year, don't you? Springtime, new beginnings, Easter...and sacraments of initiation coming up in May. Last year, I just reveled in Henry making his First Communion, I enjoyed that so thoroughly. This year, we don't know anyone receiving a sacrament, and it'll be quite a while until Henry reaches Confirmation age (at least the way they do it in our diocese) or for Anne to receive First Reconciliation, ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2015/04/need-quick-gift-for-someone-receiving.html

Easter Vigil 2015 NETTIE'S WORLD - April 6, 2015 I have been looking forward to this Easter Vigil for the last year, because I knew two very special people who were coming through RCIA and into the church this year. Here's the note Paul wrote on Facebook: Late last night, at the Easter Vigil, two amazing people joined the Catholic Church. I was Jeff Winkler's sponsor, and that was an honor! Jeff has spent many hours helping a lot of kids in very challenging circumstances. He has helped ...http://nettiesworld.com/?p=12106
