The Eucharist SETTING OUR HEARTS AFLAME - July 14, 2014 ... St. Rose of Lima). These are among my favorite celebrations in the Church! To see the children light up when they receive the Eucharist for the first time fills me with joy. I am also remembering Fr. Daniel Moran who would make every child feel special to Jesus and to him. He put a hand on each child's face and tell him/her "Jesus loves you, and so do I!" Then I would see the face of Jesus in their's! What ...http://settingourheartsaflame.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-eucharist.html

Pontifical Masses Proliferate FR. Z'S BLOG - July 11, 2014 Is it just me, or has there been an increase in the number of Pontifical Masses in the traditional Roman Rite lately? I just saw this at NLM : On the occasion of the 7th anniversary of the promulgation of Summorum Pontificum , His Excellency Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan celebrated a Pontifical Mass at the Throne in Albuquerque, NM. All the best from NLM to Archbishop Sheehan and all those who helped to make this Mass possible. Also, I ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/wdtprs/DhFa/~3/zZrjq67yMwQ/

Making Apologies and Amends CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - July 1, 2014 Two things I noticed in recent news. First, a rather uncharacteristic apology from a celebrity . Why uncharacteristic? Not because of the man giving it. I noticed the refreshingly direct language: I deeply regret … I apologize … I vow … If you will, it's a sacramental sequence. Perhaps Mr Suarez will make good on his vow. I hope ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/07/01/making-apologies-and-amends/

Breaking Good TEN THOUSAND PLACES - June 24, 2014 ... world, faced with the challenge of marriage, wants to change marriage so that it is less challenging. Make it temporary, not permanent, for example. Make it almost as easy to end a marriage as it is to begin one. Remove children from the equation, or at least make them extremely optional. Even, in some extreme circles, make marital fidelity optional, the so-called 'open marriage'. The Church, looking at the same difficulties ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2014/06/breaking-good.html

Renew the Face of the Earth A NEW SPRINGTIME - June 18, 2014 ... and looking for God in many, many wrong places these days. Eastern thought of old has become "New Age" ideas which misguide and lead many down old pagan roads. People worship creation instead of the creator, the universe instead of the The One Universal God. St Paul said, people would believe in myths instead of sound doctrine and we can see this today. Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of your faithful enkindle in them the fire of your love, send forth your spirit and they shall be created, ...http://noricoleman.typepad.com/anewspringtime/2014/06/renew-the-face-of-the-earth.html

Bishop Faith THE ONE TRUE FAITH - June 17, 2014 This past weekend, I went to a confirmation. I helped the bishop carry all his accoutrements. His crosier was quite beautiful. It is made of silver and kept in a protective case to preserve the silver from oxidizing. It came in three pieces and fit in the case quite nicely. I was happy to help Bishop Edyvean to carry everything. One of the first things Bishop Edyvean did was to fit the crosier together and hand it over to ...http://theonetruefaith-faith.blogspot.com/2014/06/bishop-faith.html

Saint Talk:St. Anthony and Patron Saint Days JOE CATHOLIC - June 14, 2014 urce: Catholic Tradition Popular Saint Today is the feast of St. Anthony of Padua, one of the most beloved and popular saints in Catholic history and my confirmation patron saint. Known as the " hammer of the heretics ," St. Anthony is often portrayed holding the infant Jesus. This is attributed to a miracle in which baby Jesus appeared to St. Anthony who was praying before the Blessed Sacrament in a small chapel.

Keep the Lord Always Before Me YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - June 14, 2014 ... also dwells secure." Study The purpose of an oath was to guarantee truthfulness by one's calling on God as witness. Once Elisha decided to devote his life to the Lord, he obliterated all signs of his former life. He slaughtered his oxen, burned his plow and left that life behind. Just like Peter left his boats behind and Matthew turned away from his tax rolls and the poor widow gave her last nickel to the temple. They unhinged their lives from Elisha set himself up for success. He figuratively ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2014/06/keep-lord-always-before-me.html

First Communion and Confirmation CATHOLICISM FOR EVERYONE - June 13, 2014 I attended a first communion and confirmation at my local church a couple of weeks ago. If there is a crisis in the church, I think this event could explain a lot of it. I discovered a lot of what is wrong with how Christianity is portrayed to children and families. I will say the sacraments were conducted in a very childish way. First of all, there was no seriousness in the ...http://holymotherchurch.blogspot.com/2014/06/first-communion-and-confirmation.html

Her blog is honest, funny, and faith-filled; definitely check it out! Magnetic cart escalator to heaven?

Throwback Thursday - Tour De France Edition IN OTHER WORDS - June 12, 2014 O f all the articles we've printed here over the years, I don't think there's ever been one better, or funnier, than this one from Steve Harris. It first ran in July 2005, even before Lance Armstrong got pinched, and it's just as good today. With the Tour just around the corner, it seems like a great time to take another look. *** Rider Stripped of Title After Having Failed to Fail Drug Test (PARIS, France) - Norwegian rider Pers Häavsrud was stripped of his Tour de ...http://hadleyblog.blogspot.com/2014/06/throwback-thursday-tour-de-france.html

Dies Domini 72: A Sunday Commitment to Others CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - June 10, 2014 ... confirmation–either adolescents or people involved with RCIA. Of course, regular parishioners could be showing the way of the Sunday disciple. The application for evangelization seems obvious. Sunday is a day that people look to as a relief from the loneliness, isolation, and drudgery of the week past. I suspect our sainted late pope is suggesting something more than visiting grandparents in the care facility, or dropping a dollar in the fast food ...http://catholicsensibility.wordpress.com/2014/06/10/dies-domini-72-a-sunday-commitment-to-others/

Should Photos Be Taken During the Liturgy? SERVANT AND STEWARD - June 10, 2014 Living as I do now in a tourist city, certain aspects and habits of tourists are becoming ever more clear to me, aspects and habits I think are quite foolish and even harmful. Among these is the desire of a tourist to take a picture of someone or of something. So intent are they on taking the picture, that they very often do not actually experience the culture they are in or take in what it is at which they are looking. Too often, tourists do not enter into ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/mEhfNK6ss-U/should-photos-be-taken-during-liturgy.html

Navarre Bible Commentary:Tuesday, 10th Week in Ordinary Time JOE CATHOLIC - June 10, 2014 ... Apostolate is one of the clearest expressions of charity. The Second Vatican Council emphasized the Christian's duty to be apostolic. Baptism and Confirmation confer this duty, which is also a right (cf. Lumen gentium , 33), so much so that, because the Christian is part of the Mystical Body, "a member who does not work at the growth of the body to the extent of his possibilities must be considered useless both to the Church and to himself" ( Apostolicam actuositatem , 2). ...http://www.thejoecatholic.org/2014/06/navarre-bible-commentary-tuesday-10th.html

If you ever wondered how the saints did what they did, knew what they knew, and endured what they endured, look at these gifts, for it is these gifts that made them saints, it was their devotion to the Holy Spirit that brought them to holiness.

Come Holy Spirit PRINTED AS PREACHED - June 9, 2014 ... buildings and beliefs. Piety can also often be mistaken for attention to detail in religious devotion. This, of course can be self-motivated. Instead this gift of the Holy Spirit allows us to appreciate closeness to God as a son or daughter of our heavenly Father. It is in places such as a Church building we become aware of our sacred relationships with God and others through what we see and sense around us – that God is not distant. This gift allows us to sense the mysterious presence ...http://printedaspreached.blogspot.com/2014/06/come-holy-spirit.html

I know that if I had been in that small group of onlookers when Jesus was taken back into heaven, I would have been holding on tightly to the hem of His tunic – not wanting to let Him go. He promised that He would send the apostles His Spirit. The Spirit is part of the Trinity – the Three in One. So when we receive, at our baptism, the ...http://danardoyle.wordpress.com/2014/06/07/reflections-on-the-readings-for-sunday-june-8-2014/

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.
