Around The Blogosphere

It is time for another trip around Catholic blogland. Since the last time I posted about this, I have come across some more worthy reads from fellow Catholic bloggers.

As we prepare to enter into Holy Week, we begin to reflect more on Our Lord's Passion and Death. Fr. Joseph Homick has a beautiful series of reflections on the Sorrowful Mysteries which will help, if read prayerfully, to enter more deeply into Christ's Passion. I linked to the First Sorrowful Mystery, but you can get to the others once on his blog, Making All Things New.

Mark Mallet has a wonder and powerful blog titled: Mark Mallet: Spiritual Food For Thought. In his post Warnings in the Wind, he certainly gives us food for thought and prayer. I warn you that his blog and, particularly this post, are not easy to read, but this post is a must be read and needs to be taken seriously given the times we are living in.

In Two Doors Down, Caroline at Bell of the Wanderer shares a beautifully poignant and honest post about loving our neighbor, even when it is especially hard to do so.

In Jesus Is My Home, Colleen at Thoughts on Grace shares the experience with which many of us are familiar~that of feeling lonely in this harsh and secularized world. She goes on to describe how she, and all of us can find our home in Jesus and His Church.

I will leave you with these four blogs to visit for now. I wish everyone a blessed Holy Week leading to a joyful Easter.
Until next time~see you around the blogosphere!

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
