Let Us Pray for Our Country REFLECTIONS OF AN RSCJ - January 18, 2017 We keep hearing about the ice storms that have been moving through the Midwest going East, but I have had very little information except what I have heard from others who watch the television programs. I feel for the people who may be suffering; just coming back after retreat and finding that we were without heat and hot water made me so grateful for California weather and I have the gift of a small heater ...http://reflectionsofanrscj.blogspot.com/2017/01/let-us-pray-for-our-country.html

Modern Suffering MT CATHOLIC - January 18, 2017 I've been helping at a local parish with some youth catechesis. Unfortunately I'm to the point where I dread the every other week two hour stint I'm there. The freshman class that I'm trying to help with is tough. The main teacher is a very sweet lady who is a retired teacher. She does the very best she can and if nothing else is showing them love even when they show her very little. This class has gained ...http://mtcatholic.blogspot.com/2017/01/modern-suffering.html

This is what the prophet meant when he said, speaking for God: "I will make you [Israel] a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth" (Isa 49:6). Way back, immediately following Abraham's incomprehensible willingness to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, God promised our father in faith ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2017/01/year-second-sunday-in-ordinary-time.html

Theologian: Shared Communion With Protestants Would Be Blasphemy and Sacrilege CLERICAL WHISPERS - January 2, 2017 ... Jesus in the Eucharist. Msgr. Bux was responding to the Register about concerns that elements of the current pontificate might be sympathetic of a form of "open Communion" proposed by the German Protestant theologian, Jürgen Moltmann. The concerns have arisen primarily due to the Holy Father's own comments on Holy Communion and Lutherans, his apparent support for some remarried divorcees to receive Holy Communion, and how others have used his frequently repeated maxim about the Eucharist: ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/01/theologian-shared-communion-with.html

Who Are You YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - January 2, 2017 ... I write you these things about those who would deceive you. As for you, the anointing that you received from him remains in you, so that you do not need anyone to teach you. But his anointing teaches you about everything and is true and not false; just as it taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:24-27 This is the testimony of John. When the Jews from Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to him to ask him, "Who are you?" He admitted and did not deny it, but admitted, ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2017/01/who-are-you-memorial-of-saints-basil.html

On Distributing Communion at Christmas Time A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY - December 22, 2016 ... Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice. For this reason the faithful are obliged to participate in the Eucharist on days of obligation, unless excused for a serious reason." Therefore, deliberately skipping the Sunday Mass is a serious sin. I believe that all priests have the obligation to explain this before giving out Holy Communion at Christmas Masses. Those who are not in a state of grace can always go up to receive a ...http://journeyofimperfectsaint.blogspot.com/2016/12/on-distributing-communion-at-christmas.html

As you live out life as a Christian, trying to make the life of Jesus a reality in your own life, many are going to be observing you. In key moments, some people are going to be looking to you for help, hope maybe you'll be their salvation, their way out.

Want to Work in the New Trump Administration? Check Out the New Website! SEASONS OF GRACE - November 10, 2016 There have been rumblings on the Internet in the last day regarding changes to now-President-Elect Donald J. Trump's website. "See?" say some cynics I know. "He lied about being pro-life. He's already deleted that plank from his platform!" Actually, says another writer, that never appeared on his website–although he was clear in his speeches and interviews that he is pro-life and that, if elected, he intended to end Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood, and work ...http://seasonsofgrace.net/want-to-work-in-the-new-trump-administration-check-out-the-new-website/

Sosa: The Face of God Is Multicoloured and Multicultural CLERICAL WHISPERS - November 8, 2016 ... underlined, "it means we don't want to act alone. The Society of Jesus loses its meaning if collaboration with others is lacking. We are thus called to embark on an enormous conversion, because in many parts of the world we are still harbour a sense of nostalgia about when we used to do everything, there is no other solution but to share the mission. I sincerely believe the opposite is true: our life is based on our collaboration with others. The other theme ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2016/11/sosa-face-of-god-is-multicoloured-and.html

Review: Divine Renovation DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - November 6, 2016 Even as I perceive our culture collapsing on so many facets --- and knowing not what to do except to pray --- Pastor James Mallon saw his newly-assigned parish as being confused about even the most basic purpose of a church building: "We don't need to know about Jesus; what we need is cards!" This book is the story of how Fr. Mallon confronted the collapsing Catholic Church culture and, sometimes by trial and error, persisted to build a parish focused on Jesus' ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2016/11/review-divine-renovation.html

Our Founder, Blessed James Alberione, gave the Pauline Family a strong devotion to Jesus our Divine Master. Jesus defines himself as our Way, Truth, and Life (John 14:6).

Genesis Notes: Covenant Renewed HAPPY CATHOLIC* - October 26, 2016 ... that Noah has endured and all that he has seen God do it is pretty disappointing to watch him get drunk and act just like a regular person. I always accepted it as part of Noah's human nature. However, there is a deeper lesson to be seen here. I'll add that it took me watching the movie Noah to realize that wine wasn't invented until after the ark landed again — so we can soften our judgment of Noah. Though the commentary below still holds true in ...http://happycatholic.blogspot.com/2016/10/genesis-notes-covenant-renewed.html

Wait for It SPIRITUAL DEVOTIONAL - October 5, 2016 "How long, O Lord? I cry for help but you do not listen! I cry out to you, 'Violence!' but you do not intervene. Why do you let me see ruin; why must I look at misery? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and clamorous discord. Then the Lord answered me and said: 'Write down the vision clearly upon the tablets, so that one can read it readily. For the vision still has its time, presses on ...http://spiritualdevotional.blogspot.com/2016/10/wait-for-it.html

Plant Those Mustard Seeds! (27.C) HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - October 2, 2016 When I was in high school I read a novel that I've never forgotten. It was the story of a priest who took today's Gospel seriously. Well, to be more precise, he took seriously the version of today's Gospel that we read in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark, since they both record Jesus talking about moving mountains rather than mulberry bushes. The book, written in 1931 (when I was not in high school, just for the record) ...http://gregorynsmith.blogspot.com/2016/10/when-i-was-in-high-school-i-read-novel.html
