    Catholic Stand ^ | January 19, 2017 | Melanie Jean Juneau
    Modern, educated folk tend to dismiss the miraculous, preferring to believe science will eventually provide a plausible explanation for the inexplicable. For the cynical, only the ignorant or gullible set out on desperate pilgrimages seeking cures or chase after Charismatic signs. Many Protestants think miracles were only for the age of dispensation of grace; for somber Calvinists, supernatural deeds are not performed today. However, there are countless, hidden souls who have experienced authentic miracles but they have been bullied into silence.The Roman Catholic Church Believes in Miracles At least Catholics believe theoretically in miracles. The word “miracle” comes from the...

  • Very Interesting Old Testament Reading from the Daily Office--January 20, 2017, Inauguration Day

    01/20/2017 6:14:19 AM PST · by sonrise57 · 13 replies
    I read the daily office for my morning devotions. Today's Old Testament reading is Isaiah 45:18-45. The reason it struck me is that the whole chapter begins with these words-- "Thus says the LORD to His anointed, to CYRUS, whose right hand I have grasped, to subdue nations before him and to loose the belts of kings, to open doors before him that gates may not be closed" The actual text of the reading, addressed to Cyrus is: 18For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (he is God!), who formed the earth and made it (he established it;...

    National Catholic Reporter ^ | January 12, 2017 | (Fr.) Thomas Reese
    One of the greatest liturgical challenges of the church in the 21st century is to figure out how to do liturgy in a way that is meaningful to people in a post-Darwin, post-Einstein, post-Hubble world. Traditional liturgical prayer, based on biblical imagery, presumes a pre-scientific worldview where Earth is the center of the universe and the world was created quickly and perfectly. Everything was wonderful until Adam sinned. In fact, the universe is some 13.8 billion years old, with organic life appearing about 3 billion years ago, and humans evolving relatively recently. Rather than appearing in an idyllic paradise,...

    January 10, 2017 Tuesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time Reading 1 Heb 2:5-12It was not to angels that God subjected the world to come,of which we are speaking.Instead, someone has testified somewhere: What is man that you are mindful of him,or the son of man that you care for him?You made him for a little while lower than the angels;you crowned him with glory and honor,subjecting all things under his feet. In "subjecting" all things to him,he left nothing not "subject to him."Yet at present we do not see "all things subject to him," but we do...
