Welcome, and don’t forget to check out the other good bloggers at RAnn’s place. You’re sure to have a good time.
The question of the week is, “What was the biggest change in your life recently?” My life is a bit upside down at the moment. I have had a few friends who have gone and are going through extremely traumatic episodes in their lives and I’m spending a great deal of time helping them both spiritually and in practical ways. I am here for them as a tree to shelter under, a safe place for them to say what they don’t feel safe saying to others, and a comforter witnessing to Christ’s love for them. It’s something I feel called to do, but my life has become very different because of it. The big lesson coming home to me is that if we don’t live a Christ-centered life, a whole lot of really bad things are going to happen, including to people we love, and that without Christ, people are capable of doing unbelievably horrendous things to others, even to family.
This week I have two of Father Abbot Philip Anderson’s homilies, both very rich, deep, and challenging. I have so many things I want to spend more time meditating on and these have been added to the list.
Mother of the Living Gospel is the sermon from December 8. Of Mary we can never say enough, nor can we consider her enough in our meditations.
Sermon from the Second Annual Nellie Gray Mass offers some profound views on the Gospel of Life and the Gospel of the Beatitudes. A fresh angle and very inspiring.
