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

Trinity Sunday HOMILETIC DIAKONIA - May 30, 2015 ... Matthew 28:16-20 The Holy Trinity is serious business, so you don't hear a lot of jokes about the Trinity, but, maybe because I'm in the business, I have actually heard one. A bishop is at a parish for Confirmation and decides that in his homily he will quiz the teenagers he is supposed to be confirming. So he asks them, "who can tell me what the Trinity is?" They all look at their shoes, in that way that teenagers do. So he calls on one young ...http://homileticdiakonia.blogspot.com/2015/05/trinity-sunday.html

The Full Magnitude of the Problem AND SOMETIMES TEA - May 26, 2015 ... comments from Catholics, most of them regular churchgoers, about where and how the Catholic Church might improve in terms of practical matters. One commenter in particular, who uses the screen name Agathonika, wrote what I think was a very important comment , and she has give me permission to quote her here: We should be careful not to beg the question. Maybe Catholics are not doing something wrong. Maybe evangelicals are not doing something right. Maybe there's a confounding ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-full-magnitude-of-problem.html

Pentecost Sunday PRINTED AS PREACHED - May 25, 2015 ... . We need this divine gift of fortitude, of strength and courage to help us battle with sin, with evil and when our faith is tested or attacked. We would be fools to think that we can defeat the enemy of our souls and our faith by our own natural abilities. We need the divine armor of courage so that we might not cave in under intimidation. St. Paul reminds us of this when he boldly states, 'I can do all things in him who strengthen me". 3. The Holy Spirit gives us the gift of ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2015/05/pentecost-sunday.html

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.

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.'

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

The Gift of Fear GETTING TO THE POINT - May 17, 2015 Happy Ascension Sunday to all my Canadian readers/7th Sunday of Easter to other readers! It's too bad the Church gets a bit wonky this time of year with different countries moving feasts around to different days. Not a great situation in my view, and a mistake to have moved Ascension like this. But that's not what I want to write about. We are now a full week from Pentecost Sunday, the great feast of the Church year ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-gift-of-fear.html

Mother's Day Every Day ARE WE THERE YET? - May 5, 2015 So, remember how I mentioned (I did mention it, didn't I?) that I'd gotten a part time job at an antiques store? Well, I do love the job. The hours are great, minimal and timed so that the kids are never here alone for more than an hour or so -- but there's a catch. I have to work every other weekend: 1 - 9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday -- and in the rotation, I had off ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2015/05/mothers-day-every-day.html
