Pope of Rome, Patriarch of Moscow to Meet in Cuba BYZANTINE, TEXAS - February 5, 2016 ... allowed this meeting to be organized," commented Metropolitan Hilarion, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church's Foreign Relations Department. "The situation in the Middle East, in northern and central Africa and in some other regions where extremists are perpetrating genocide of Christians, requires immediate action and even closer cooperation between Christian churches. "In the current tragic situation, we need to put aside internal disagreements and join efforts to save Christianity in the ...http://byztex.blogspot.com/2016/02/pope-of-rome-patriarch-of-moscow-to.html

THE CELEBRATION OF CONFIRMATION by Dom David Bird MONKS AND MERMAIDS (A BENEDICTINE BLOG) - January 26, 2016 In "The Meaning of Confirmation" we criticized some of the common ways of explaining what Confirmation is because they are too vague and need something else to make them clear; and we said that that "something" is the liturgy. Liturgy is the product of the synergy between the Holy Spirit and the Church and the proper context in which to understand the sacraments. We then looked at how the Catholic West celebrates ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2016/01/the-celebration-of-confirmation-by-dom.html

A Crisis for Saints BATTLE BEADS BLOG - January 24, 2016 St. Pio Faithful Catholics: Pray More and Complain Less, A Message of Hope Dear Catholic Friend, I am writing to you to give you a word of encouragement. So I would hope you take this in the fatherly way I want to address you, as one who is a priest of over 32 years and as spiritual director of dozens of people, a priest who very much has personal contact with many of the lay faithful and knows very well the deep ...http://battlebeads.blogspot.com/2016/01/a-crisis-for-saints.html

The Feet and the Washer GETTING TO THE POINT - January 24, 2016 I can't seem to summon up the will to write my usual 'this week in Madonna House' blog post, popular as those always are, for the simple reason that I cannot think of anything noteworthy that happened this week here. Sometimes life is just pretty ordinary. Meanwhile, I wanted to throw in my two cents' worth about the Pope's change in a small liturgical rubric, the Holy Thursday mandatum rite of foot ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2016/01/the-feet-and-washer.html

Works of Mercy: Counselling the Doubtful GETTING TO THE POINT - January 20, 2016 ... mercy: to counsel the doubtful . And I have to be honest here that I am struggling a bit to know what to say about it. Not, as I said a few weeks ago with 'visiting prisoners', because I don't do this particular work much. Quite the opposite, actually: this work of mercy pretty much is my principal job description in Madonna House. I am a spiritual director. More and more all the time, this is ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2016/01/works-of-mercy-counselling-doubtful.html

You Can't Be a Real Catholic Without... THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - January 15, 2016 Friends just came back from a week-long retreat and have mentioned the post-retreat weirdness. I understand what they mean. It's the change of spiritual perspective, the fact of having spent so much time analyzing all the presuppositions of your life... That and lots of other things has contributed to this. As some of you know, I just finished writing a book on the Catholic Spiritual Tradition. (Currently shopping publishers.) In it I ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2016/01/you-cant-be-real-catholic-without.html

The Baptism of the Lord HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - January 10, 2016 ... message about God and the love he has revealed in his Church. I'm reading a good biography of this saintly scholar, whose careful study of the teachings of the ancient Church led him to embrace the Catholic Church, abandoning the beautiful Anglican tradition that he loved so much. His bold decision brought comfort to some but conflict to many. Newman is a reminder that comfort and tenderness—which must be hallmarks of Christian preaching, as the were of his—can ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2016/01/blessed-john-henry-newman-was-man-who.html

Likewise, Christian parents have an obligation to surround their children with good people who are positive spiritual influences, whether it be adults or peers, relatives or neighbors, teachers or classmates, coaches or teammates. It is crucial to monitor with whom we spend our time on the "caravan through life," because who we associate with says everything about our values. Rules and Obedience.

Fourth Sunday in Advent: Why Should the Lord Come to Me? VOX NOVA - December 21, 2015 My last homily for Advent and it is a day late. This week I had a hard time making myself sit down and read the readings, let alone reflect on them. And I have only been doing this for two months. My respect for pastors who have done this for years, and give thoughtful sermons every week, grows each time I do this. Trying to make the Letter to the Hebrews fit with the other readings finally ...http://vox-nova.com/2015/12/21/fourth-sunday-in-advent-why-should-the-lord-come-to-me/

St. Stanislaus & Me GLORIA IN EXCELSIS DEO - December 16, 2015 ... Stanislaus Kostka. He is a popular Saint, but not as widely known of as certain others, such as St. Francis, St. Augustine or more modern day ones such as St. Faustina. St. Stanislaus died at the tender age of eighteen, so he hadn't written books, been a teacher in theology or worked his way up the hierarchy of Catholicism to be anyone viewed as important, such as a Bishop. In fact, he was only a novice in the Society of Jesus for one-year before his death, so finding information and ...http://ravenswiss.blogspot.com/2014/08/st-stanislaus-me.html

Quick Lessons From the Catechism: The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation TOM PERNA - December 15, 2015 Although I've written in the past here about the Sacrament of Reconciliation, I felt the need today to share with you what the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches on this beautiful sacrament given to us by Our Lord Jesus Christ through the authority He gave the Apostles to forgive sins. It's on my mind today because last night in RCIA and Adult Confirmation, Fr. Will taught about Sacraments of Healing. The other ...http://tomperna.org/2015/12/15/quick-lessons-from-the-catechism-the-sacrament-of-penance-and-reconciliation/

Parental Failure? Childhood Genius? Both? SAINT LOUIS CATHOLIC - December 3, 2015 True story: My not-yet-two year old daughter successfully purchased a Spongebob Squarepants movie off of Amazon. We found out when an order confirmation was emailed to us. Random thoughts: 1. make the password harder 2. maybe check on her more often when she's quiet 3. don't believe any child who says they're using the computer for school without serious evidence or their statement that the computer is off 4. turn off "one-click ordering" ...http://stlouiscatholic.blogspot.com/2015/12/parental-failure-childhood-genius-both.html

The Comparative Nobility of the Sacraments NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - November 9, 2015 ... ways. In one way, as regards the reality of the sacrament, or its effect; and thus baptism, which wipes away all guilt and takes away all punishment, is the greatest sacrament. In another way, as regards that which is contained in the sacrament; and thus the Eucharist is the noblest, in which is contained Christ himself. In a third way, as regards the grade of dignity in which it consists; and thus holy orders is the noblest sacrament. In a fourth way, as regards the minister; and thus ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/L7KvJe4qkRI/the-comparative-nobility-of-sacraments.html

When God Says No {On Suffering and Gratitude} BLESSED BY GOD - November 6, 2015 "My daughter, suffering will be a sign to you that I am with you" Jesus to St. Faustina (Diary, 669) We've been here before...many times before. The anticipation of new life squelched too soon as we stare at the ultra sound screen and know something isn't right. We know a positive pregnancy test doesn't mean a full term baby that we will hold in our arms in this world. We celebrate none the less because a soul has been created. A soul that, if we don't ...http://ekblad9.blogspot.com/2015/11/when-god-says-no-on-suffering-and.html

Going Through the Magical Door GETTING TO THE POINT - November 5, 2015 ... above all others opens us up to the action of grace, to the work of God to make us into all that He desires us to be. And that is, simply, gratitude . Whatever there is in our life that is painful and burdensome, unjust and afflicting, every last one of us reading this has so very much to be thankful for. Life itself, whatever degree of health we possess, the presence of food and shelter, clothing.

Welcome Back MARY AND JOSEPH'S GEM - November 3, 2015 I know its been a long, long time since I posted anything on the blog. So I think it's high time that I updated the blog. I know that my readers will have been disappointed that nothing has appeared for such a long time.

St. Jude, My Reversion Intercessor JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - October 28, 2015 ... day of St. Jude (and St. Simon!) For those who haven't been reading this blog long enough, you may not know that St. Jude played a huge role in my reversion. Since I'm crunched for time, I'm going to pull some of my past blog posts to help tell the complete story of how his intercession led to my reversion. There are some of you who've been reading this blog for almost 8 years now (crazy!) so you may sort of ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2015/10/st-jude-my-reversion-intercessor.html
