Aug 31 – Homily – Fr Angelo: He Passed Through Their Midst

Monday, August 31st, 2009
Click to Play

Homily #090831 ( 08min) Play – When Jesus was rejected by the citizens of His native Nazareth due to their lack of humility, He easily evaded the angry crowd by walking through their midst. This shows His power over those who reject his message and therefore how he laid down his life voluntarily on Calvary in an act of humility. Let us ask for the grace of humility whenever Jesus reveals himself to us.

Aug 31 – St. Pio Daily – Sustaining Us in Battle

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: Spiritual Aridity

“The state of the soul placed in interior straits is sad, and truly it seems to us that it is all over for us, and that, in the end, the Lord has withdrawn from us because He is tired of putting up with us. Meanwhile, things are quite different. […] the Lord […] is always close to us, rather, He is within us and He invisibly animates us to sustain the battle.”

Homily #090830 ( 20min) Play – In order to have faith we must do more than just lip service but do His will. Even the Pharisees who did many of the things that God told them to do were accused by Our Lord of doing mere lip service. Listen to Fr. Angelo explain the true meaning of doing the Lord’s will.

Aug 30 – St. Pio Daily – Never Lose Heart

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: Spiritual Aridity

“Never lose heart; place all of your trust in God alone; await all strength from Him and do not overwhelmingly desire to be freed from the present state of aridity. Let the Holy Spirit work in you.

Aug 29 – St. Pio Daily – The Old School

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: Spiritual Aridity

“Do not be discouraged in the face of the trials to which the Divine Mercy wishes to subject you. He still wants to try you and strengthen you at the school of sacrifice and pain. Do not be discouraged; pray with humility and remember the calm after the rain, the light after the darkness, the placid quiet after the tempest and the whirlwind. The merciful help of the paternal love of our God, and the great gifts of His divine majesty, will certainly surround with glory the faith of those who have persevered.”

Aug 28 – St. Pio Daily – Bend Your Shoulders Willingly

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: Spiritual Aridity

“It is God Who permits that your heart be in aridity and darkness; therefore, it is not harshness but sweetness. Do not be discouraged in the way you have undertaken because everything is pleasing to God. As He wants your heart to always be faithful to Him, He will not allow things to worsen more than you can handle, and He will bear the burden with you, so that He will see that you bend your shoulders willingly.”

Conversion through Prayers and Tears

Thursday, August 27th, 2009
The heroic prayers and tears with fortitude and trust made over long years not only converted her son, Augustine, who would become one of the great Doctors of the Church, but also made her a saint as well. We have much to learn from her example!

St. Monica-Feast Day August 27th

her son, St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church-Feast Day August 28th

From “The Confessions” of St. Augustine

The day when she was to leave this life was drawing near – a day known to You, though we were ignorant of it – she and I happened to be alone, through (as I believe) the mysterious workings of Your will.

We stood leaning against a window which looked out on a garden within the house where we were staying, at Ostia on the Tiber; for there, far from the crowds, we were recruiting our strength after the long journey, in order to prepare ourselves for our voyage overseas. We were alone, conferring very intimately. Forgetting what lay in the past, and stretching out to what was ahead, we inquired between ourselves, in the light of present truth, into what You are and what the eternal life of the saints would be like, for eye has not seen nor ear heard nor human heart conceived it.

Aug 26,27 – St. Pio Daily – Rotting in Suffering

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: Spiritual Aridity

26- “Aridity is a trial of fire, wholly different, however, from the fire of this base world. Between these two fires, though, there is this similarity, that is that both of them destroy and consume everything that opposes the attainment of their goal.”

27- “My soul is placed by the Lord to rot in suffering. My state is bitter; it is terrible; it is extremely frightful. Everything is obscure around me and within me: obscurity of the intellect, afflictions of the will; I am tormented in my memory. The thought of faith alone sustains me: in my innermost being I am bruised with pain, and at the same time, afflicted and anxious from divine love.”

The Art of Feminine Chivalry

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

eowyn-fighting

A woman should be able to drive a stick shift, fire a Springfield Arms XD accurately, do the family tax return, throw a football 20 yards, and barbecue steaks. However, when men are around, she should allow men to do things for her, even if she can do them better herself. Men should always be asked to do dangerous tasks (shoveling snow, killing spiders, etc.), and they should never be criticized about their performance in front of other people, only in private.

Great post on the art of feminine chivalry.
