We prayed for you & your iittnenons at our first First Friday Mass of the academic year for our Catholic home school association. It was followed by our annual Blessing of the Home Schools. My 7 yo son has quite a fervent devotion to The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus! My family has coordianted these Masses for our group for 4 years and can attest to the fruit of the promises granted to this devotion.
Catholicism is the only Christian Faith . They are lead in worship By the Pope who was given the Keys to Heaven From Jesus . Through Apostolic sueicsscon From Peter the First Pope they worship Jesus, And thru The Holy Tradition Of the Saints formed the Biblical doctrines, Such as the Trinity, Sunday service, Easter, And Christmas teach Grace alone for salvation, Did not remove books From the Bible but preserved the writings of the Jewish Old testament which the protestants threw out , Catholics want to worship Jesus with all 5 of their senses .Music for the ears,Incense for the nose,Statues and art for the eyes,Please pray a sincere prayer with all of your heart admitting to Jesus you are a sinner. Have full faith that His blood pays off all of your sins and accept His gift of everlasting life. And give your confession to a Priest Jesus never said to confess your sins to either him Or to the Father pray that God blesses you with peace. AmenThe truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! Say this PrayerLord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;where there is hatred, let me sow love;where there is injury, pardon;where there is doubt, faith;where there is despair, hope;where there is darkness, light;and where there is sadness, joy.O Divine Master,grant that I may not so much seek to be consoledas to console;to be understood, as to understand;to be loved, as to love;for it is in giving that we receive,it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Catholic is not Christian. Catholicism leads to eternal teromnt in hell, because catholicism teaches works for salvation, and that is a false gospel of works (Galatians 1:6-9) that is against JESUS'S free gift of salvation!And catholicism will not give anyone a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with Jesus!So, you need to get away from catholicism, and instead, believe in JESUS for His free gift of salvation!Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! And the Trinity is true!The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to hell, is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for all our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what!Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus alone to save you! It is impossible to lose or leave salvation (John 6:39-40, John 10:28, 1 John 5:13).Please pray now: Jesus, I believe that You died on the cross to pay for my sins and that You rose from the dead, and I thank You for eternal life! You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die!
We haven't been with you every step of the way, Jimmy, but thanks very much for taknig us with you. I've sat at work thinking of you out there on the other side of the world. Achieving for yourself. It made me feel good. Thanks for spending the time to document what you've done.
That's all fair comment Mike. I just think that we far too eaisly get these titles wrong the C of E is just as guilty as the Roman ChurchI think with New' Evangelisation Benedict could do well to read the Church Times article by Phyllis Tickle of a couple of weeks ago which referred to Emergent Church and the cycles of history which suggest that we are in for another reformation. Richard Rohr and Brian Maclaren are worth reading in this respect as well.
IE7 = bill gates = nothing .. I dont unatrsednd why bill gates is trying to create something which other browser already have, on that its not stable. I IE 7 in my office coz i have to but let me tell you it sucks not worth installing i would suggest use fire fox its good stable. If there are people using IE 7 with no issues then i would suggest them start using IE 7 according to us. watch the news video, check the games you play on website ..
I knew Bishop Victor well. He truly was a very saintly and godly man, whose feet were very fimrly on the ground. You couldn't NOT like the fellow. True gentlemen like him are hard to find nowadays. May his soul rest in peace.
Depends on the school. If you go sheowmere that teaches only arts then (in my experience) you're often encouraged to become overly-critical of yourself and other's playing, not to mention highly competitive. One of my friends quit the Royal Northern just because everyone was told their playing was really bad all the time. However, if you want to become a soloist, it's probably the best route to go in terms of technical training regimes, advice from world masters and so on. If you went to a normal university that had a music course (which is what I do) then the degree would be more focused on learning the academic aspects of music- musicology, theory and so on. The performance part of it plays an equal modular part rather than dominating the course. This would probably be best if you wanted to teach, or to work in the industry in some non-performance aspect. Remember that just because you're a good violinist doesn't mean there are jobs out there for you, and you need a back-up plan or six! Out of about 20 musicians I know who graduated this year, only one has professional performance work full time. Do I think it would be good for you? Depends who you are! It's hard work, but incredibly fun!
I remembered you at Mass this monring also, Father. It was a Mass of the Sacred Heart (the priest explained that on First Fridays when there is no other official feast, this can be done ~ it's the only one this year), so he wore his beautiful white Roman chasuble. There was all-day adoration afterward. He gave a lovely homily explaining to the children (it was a school Mass) how we shouldn't think of adoration as taking Jesus out of the tabernacle, but that when He is exposed, the walls of the church become the tabernacle, so He is really inviting us in. :o)
For those wanting to iocarpnrote these propers into their devotional practice of the older Divine Office:1. The rank is simple (III class in the 1960 rubrics)2. The common is from Confessors, Bishops.3. At Lauds and Vespers, the collect is proper. The rest (besides the psalm, antiphons, and versicle, which come from the feria) come from the common.4. At Matins, the psalms, etc. are from the feria. The rest is from the common. There is one nocturn of three lessons. The first lesson is the first daily Scriptural readings with the responsory. The second lesson is the second and third Scriptural readings with the responsory. The third lesson is the proper biography and Office of Lessons (followed by the Te Deum).
: C'est le seul roman de Kundera que j'aie lu. J'ai aussi bien aime9 mais comme toi je n'ai plus trop envie de le lire J'aimerais toutefois lire L'insoutenable le9ge8rete9 de l'eatre'.@ Karine : Il me faiasit peur aussi, mais c'e9tait tre8s agre9able comme lecture. Enrichissant.
Thanks for the link and your comments, I agree with your take on the sioiatutn. It seems like the Pope is scared to confront the real issues the Church has; declining attendance, lack of Priests, rogue Priests, Nuns leaving or not enrolling, and declining revenues. Maybe he is trying to divert attention by talking about greedy capitalists.
Book 4, Epigram 7: Our fathers did but use the world berfoe BY THOMAS BASTARDOur fathers did but use the world berfoe,And having used did leave the same to us.We spill whatever resteth to their store.What can our heirs inherit but our curse?For we have sucked the sweet and sap away,And sowed consumption in the fruitful ground;The woods and forests clad in rich arrayWith nakedness and baldness we confound.We have defaced the lasting monuments,And caused all honour to have end with us;The holy temples feel our ravishments.What can our heirs inherit but our curse?The world must end, for men are so accurst;Unless God end it sooner, they will first
abide? Although I've not personally excenierped this, what about those who are purported to levitate or bi-locate or miraculously heal themselves or others of terminal diseases? It seems to me that if it is, indeed, possible to do these things, could it not also be possible to fly? And yet, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that isn't that what we do every day? We desire something that to many would seem impossible, we think about having it, and if we think long and hard enough, eventually (if not sooner) we find a way of manifesting whatever it is we so strongly desire into existence. As the saying goes, a house begins as a fleeting thought, then becomes an idea, eventually makes its way to a blueprint, and ultimately finds expression in being `manifested' or constructed out of tangible, material substance. Yet, it began as a mere thought, a desire. In fact, some of our greatest Teachers and thinkers from the ancient Sumerians, Egyptians, Hindu, Chinese and Native Americans to Socrates, Plato, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, Gandhi and Mother Teresa taught some version of `thoughts become things.' Even with all the evidence indicating that humans are capable of achieving feats far greater than even they realize, why have the majority of us believed that either the average person isn't capable of greatness, or that the greatness which has, historically, been achieved is some fluke? I suspect that, for the most part, it may be because we, as a conglomerate society, have been taught that only `the gods' are capable of creation. Further, that we must sacrifice all to `the gods' and rely on their good graces (and their whims) in order to experience the benefit of their bounty. Has this not been what has happened throughout the world over the last three- to four-thousand years in the forms of various religions? Yet, is this really true? Do we really need to worship some elusive Concept of our own (or possibly someone else's?) imaginative creation in order to reap the benefits we all so richly desire and deserve? Speaking from a scientific-cum-psychological point of view, my belief is that we certainly `reap what we sow.' If we choose negative thoughts, we will reap a negative outcome. If we are positive in our intent, we reap positive benefits. So, why is this concept so difficult for us to understand or believe? Who of us doesn't know at least someone who is so tenacious, relentless and ambitious that they never once listen to the `realistic' advice of friends and family who tell them something can't possibly be done, but instead follow the beat of their own drummer and end up achieving exactly what they always knew they could achieve while we stood on the sidelines gaping, jealous and in awe. Individuals such as Hammurabi; Abraham (father of the Jews and Muslims); the Hebrew prophetess, Deborah; Buddha;

As I have been reading James, he seems to touch on this as well. For our faith to mean ainhtnyg it must be evidenced by our works. The works do not save, faith in Christ saves. That faith however, if it is real will produce works. Works is the evidence of our faith.
In terms of the musicality, it's soeihtmng like composing an original work for Itzhak Perlman and a second rate community orchestra. You have to make the fundamental elements of the work simple enough to be grasped readily by amateurs (or in the case of the responsorial Psalm, less than amateurs) while keeping the work musically worthy of it's purpose. It's not all that difficult to write a responsorial Psalm that works one which the people can sing easily. It's an entirely different thing to write one that is worthy of the Word of God. That's where many, many settings fail. MacMillan's settings of the Psalms (and the Mass setting for the Papal visit) are glorious and achieve this goal.
