Find Me in Florida Again.

Welcome to Florida during another one of balmy Winter seasons! This is the season where we enjoy balmy Florida sunsets and sunrises, depending on which side of the state you are on. Weather during December, January, Feb., and March is 40s at night, and 60s and 70s during the day. Residents steer clear of crowded Themeparks during the holidays. We have sense. Don't say we didn't warn you. This is not summertime. Ask a resident how we live here. Answers will be various yet the same. Life is different here than "up north" or "out west". Enjoy the gifts of God, we do!Forget about what you should do and just live and try not to be rigid. The sun is shining. Look up and smile. We do.

I just got banned AGAIN FOR POSTING the Sunday readings on Catholic Digest -comment board. What is wrong with these people? Most who did comment said they were NOT PAYING ATTENTION AT Mass.

  • Florida here: Father focused on the readings for the June 23. He was a visiting priest from the Philippines. He talked about the readings. Here’s the link from the USCCB website. http://usccb.org/bible/readings/062313.cfm 1. Jesus was asking them and realized and wanted the 12 to realize who He was. 2, And by when they did realize who he was they were to embrace life by carrying on through difficulty.Posted on Jun 23rd, 2013 at 7:25 PM by unknown   Posted on Jun 24th, 2013 at 8:26 AM by unknown

  • Last night the priest talked about how everyone, Christian or not, has crosses in life. And uniting our crosses to Christ’s results in resurrection.Posted on Jun 23rd, 2013 at 5:09 AM by ClaireS
  • We attended a Mass prior to a Fortnight for Freedom prayer vigil at the U.S. Capitol. Archbishop Lori of Baltimore celebrated and he preached about the the legacy of St. Thomas More. He made a humorous distinction regarding the Gospel passage. At first Christ asks about the opinion polls: who do people say I am? And it’s easy for the disciples to say what others think –within the margin of error :). But what Christ calls for next is not opinion, but a profession of faith –what do YOU say? Archbishop Lori tied that to St. Thomas’ witness and further tied that to lay people standing up for religious liberty today. Is the need exaggerated? Isn’t this just a dumb rule we can overlook? St. Thomas More, he pointed out, went to his grave over a dumb rule because it violated his conscience. He was more eloquent than this summary, but that was the nub.Posted on Jun 23rd, 2013 at 10:53 AM by Rebecca Teti
  • Am from Abuja,Nigeria. Today, the priest simply based his homily on the question Our Lord asked His apostles. Who is Jesus to each and every one of us? What position does He occupy in my life? In your life? Does He have a say in our decision making? Be sincere to ure heart and do an Examination of Conscience!Posted on Jun 23rd, 2013 at 11:02 AM by Zobam
  • Father focused on each of taking up our cross and doing it willingly. Also asked us to reflect on all our relationships to see if our treatment/behavior were crosses to others. I had not thought about it in that perspective….but after some reflection I can see where I need to not be someone else’s cross.Posted on Jun 23rd, 2013 at 11:21 AM by BlueJayGene
