A Penitent Blogger

Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

Catholic Carnival XIII

Death, Sacrifice, and Life

For if, by the transgression of one person, death came to reign through that one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of justification come to reign in life through the one person Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:17

Death, Sin, and the Christian Reaction

Santificarnos.com reports about a Baby Murdered To Please Grandparents, saying "a while back I published an item about a 27-year old mentally handicapped woman who was pregnant. If you remember the post, then you´ll remember that she was seven months pregnant - and her parents had asked for an abortion. Last weekend the parents of the woman got their wish, and the baby was murdered. There can be no other word than that, since we are talking about a child that was in the doctor´s own words, "viable outside of the womb."

Sister Consuelo, the tsunami, abortion and recovery has My Domestic Church's "thoughts on different types of grief, recovery, and help."

The Blog from the Core reports on how Pope Pius XII Was Smeared Again with "quotations from recent articles showing how a report last month about Pope Pius XII was false."

In Tiptoe Through the TULIP, Ales Rarus sends "an FYI to the Catholic blogging community. Jollyblogger, a respected and well-read Protestant blogger, has posted a series of entries about the five core ideals of Calvinism. This gives us an excellent opportunity for Catholic apologetics and evangelization."

In Guardini: Possibilities of Action, Notes provides "excerpts from the last chapter of Romano Guardini's remarkable book on 'The End of the Modern World'"

Christ's Sacrifice

In Made Holy by the Blood of the Lamb, HMS Blog discusses "what we learn from the readings for the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time this year about accepting Jesus as the Lamb of God."

In Priesthood Reflections, A Penitent Blogger offers a long set of reflections, based on Hebrews 5:1-10, on the Priesthood of Christ, the Priesthood of the Baptized and the ministerial priesthood.

New Life

In Living Psalm 23, Happy Catholic gives "a testimony to how God has changed my life."
