  • How Does One Walk By The Spirit?

    02/11/2016 7:02:10 PM PST · by Armen Hareyan · 11 replies ^ | Jan. 22, 2016 | Armen Hareyan
    If you from various kinds of bad thoughts and you lost your peace, this is a sign that "you live according to the flesh." Do you know that when you think of the Spirit of God there is neither ‪sadness nor ‪‎disappointments? Have you ever seen a disappointing saint? That's why the Apostle Paul taught to walk "by the spirit." (Romans 8: 5; Gal. 5:16). This is the only real way to overcome worldly difficulties and bad habits because when your mind is governed by the Spirit the result is peace and real life. If you want peace, walk by...

    Beams of Heaven As I Go – A Homily for the Second Sunday of Lent By: Msgr. Charles PopeWhat is it that gives hope, peace, and serene joy to the Christian life? Briefly, it is the vision of glory, a glimpse into the Promised Land of Heaven, which the Lord can and does give to His people. Today’s gospel shows forth a kind of process wherein the Lord lays the foundations of hope, peace, and joy for His disciples and for us. Let’s look at four aspects of how the Lord lays this foundation.I. The Paradoxical Prelude - The...

    What do you expect from your relationship to Jesus Christ? I have come to discover that many do not expect all that much. In effect they hope that faith can kind of help them “muddle through” life and offer them a few consolations that, perhaps things will be better some day, and in heaven. Others see the moral life described in the scriptures more as a duty than a description of the person being transformed by Jesus Christ. And because they see it as a list of duties,  rather than the result of grace, they tend to resent it, consider...

    Common Sense 101, Dale Ahlquist ^ | Nov 20, 2009 | Chesterton
    I was so moved reading this last night. Ballad of the White Horse is Chesterton's poem about the English King Alfred, who fought the Danes in 878. "But it is also the story of Christianity battling against the destructive forces of nihilism and heathenism" (Alquist comments). The Blessed Virgin has appeared to King Alfred right before the battle; he queries her as to the outcome of the battle. "If he fail or if he win/ To no good man is told," she tells him. And continues: The men of the East may spell the stars, And times and triumphs mark,...

    Eutychus' Window ^ | 7/14/05 | Greg Alterton
    We've all heard the phrase, "Well, if it works for you...", as a justification for this or that behavior or attitude. It's a reflection of the relativistic yet utilitarian values of our society. "It may not work for you, but it works for me...," and who are we to question the efficacy of "what works"? The truth is, "If it works for you..." is a myth. I'm old enough now, and have observed enough of life and how others live their's that I know with a high degree of confidence that no one has an answer, nothing truly "works" for...

    Archbishop Sheen Today! -- Choices we make (Part Two) Barbara Kralis Barbara Kralis October 8, 2004 © Catholic Online 2004 A long time ago, Sister Christine Joseph taught us to make the heroic minute on waking each morning. She taught our first grade class to pray: "Good morning, dear Jesus, this day is for you! I ask you to bless me in everything I think, say and do!" Sister said that our first waking thoughts and words should be of and toward Jesus. Why, in l950, did this wise holy nun teach such a 'state of readiness' to little children?...

    The Today Show
    Is there anyone more annoying than ultimate-establishment guy David Gergen, the man who has worked for four or five presidents, including Bill Clinton? There he was on Today this morning, defending former Clinton National Security Advisor Sandy Berger who has been accused of taking classified documents from the National Archives. And what was the source of Gergen's knowledge of the subject? He repeatedly made reference to statements made by "close associates" of . . . Berger! In other words, Gergen was nothing more than a shill for the Berger/Dem party line. In fairness to Today, they led the show with...

    New Media is trumping elitist bias in many ways, but nowhere is it more evident than in the business of books. And no one could be happier about it than me. My new book is now out, and I hope you'll order a copy from the WorldNetDaily bookstore. But as you'll read below, I am also hoping you will use the services of to send a copy to your least favorite liberal journalist, a small gift of truth and an invitation to reason.

We will find out in November, because South Dakota's Senator Tom Daschle has embraced Moore--literally. That's what Time magazine reported this week. "Two weeks ago, at the Washington premier, Moore sat a few rows behind Daschle," the magazine's cover story recounted about the D.C. opening of Fahrenheit 9/11. "Afterward, says Moore, 'he gave me...

    WHEN WILL George Smiley and Karla begin to blog? Smiley and Karla are the two central characters from John Le Carre's finest set of Cold War intelligence thrillers. Smiley was the best of the operatives, patiently wending his way through misinformation and misdirection, deceptions and deceits. In the era of Reagan, everything had to be understood as admitting of at least two interpretations. Was your information genuine or planted, or did the Soviets or East Germans or someone else want you to think it was planted, and would you let them know that you knew? It was wonderful stuff--moles, tradecraft,...

Posted: June 23, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern By Hugh Hewitt © 2004 Here's the Harris Poll from late last week, full of good news for the president, including a 10-point lead over Kerry in likely voters. Unlike the discredited Los Angeles Times poll showing Kerry with a 7-point lead, the reputable Harris survey got very little ink. The most interesting data from the survey is the comparison between the president's approval rating – 50 percent –...

    Why Ronald Reagan made a difference and what his detractors are really after."RONALD REAGAN was great because Ronald Reagan was right." So declared Gipper speechwriter Peter Robinson, author of How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life, on my radio program Monday. Robinson's right, too, of course. There have been many gifted orators whose cause was evil; many "communicators" who dealt in death. Reagan's greatness is anchored in his and his country's goodness. Reagan used the term "evil empire," and sent the intelligentsia into shock. Because he stood with the good, however, Reagan could use the language of absolutes and move public...

A young Tim Russert and some of his pals from Canisius High School summoned the courage to try and bluff their way in one day in the mid-'60s, only to be asked their age and whether Father Sturm, the Prefect of Discipline at Canisius, knew they were there.

    Do pictures of John Kerry in his Lycra cycling suit make you wonder if he's running for the right reasons? WHEN JOHN KERRY took a spill from his bike this past weekend, it triggered thoughts of Jimmy Carter's collapse in a road race, Gerald Ford's much-mocked stumbles, and of Kerry's own misadventures on the ski slopes earlier this year. But it wasn't until the pictures of Kerry on his bike appeared that the real damage was done. The electric-lemon Lycra look probably won't play well outside the metrosexual caucus, and it can't be particularly inspiring to the troops living in...

    The Torricelli Option: Will Dems dump Kerry? Posted: April 28, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 There is palpable fear among Democrats as they contemplate their presumptive nominee, John Kerry, the candidate who couldn't keep his lies straight. Kerry followed a week made disastrous by his military records fiasco with a Monday morning performance with Charlie Gibson of ABC's Good Morning America that will live in TV history alongside the 1980 Roger Mudd-Teddy Kennedy exchange through which it dawned on America that a senator in search of a verb wasn't really equipped to be a president. Gibson's refusal to be deflected...

    John Kerry tells Tim Russert just how much he values multilateralism.OVER AT's campaign blog, they're referring to Kerry's appearance on Meet the Press as a "home run." If that was a home run, I'd hate to see Kerry strike out. On question after question, Kerry managed to turn under-armed softballs into high and tight strikes, and the damage from his reflexive parsing and dodging are just beginning to be recognized.Kerry tried to deceive Russert on the availability of his military records, and then his campaign tried to stonewall the Boston Globe reporter who heard the candidate quite clearly promise...

    Gorelick must go Posted: April 21, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 In Sunday's Washington Post, former Clinton administration senior official Jamie Gorelick wrote about her tenure as Deputy Attorney General and her now-infamous "building a wall" memo that has become a centerpiece of the debate over why the 9-11 terrorists could move through the United States without detection. The issue is not whether "the wall" was a necessity compelled by law, or whether the early decisions of the Bush administration to keep "the wall" in place were themselves correct, as Gorelick asserted. The only issues are who is going to...
