The Roman Liturgy, like other Latin and Oriental Liturgies, contains many and varied forms of suffrage for the dead. In the Old Testament Wisdom Literature, worship enjoys a particular focus. Then he suggests a golden rule, ‘So speak and so act as those who are to be judged by the law of liberty’ (v. 12 NRSV).

Be willing to listen for the "gentle whisper" of the Spirit that Elijah heard (1 Kings 19:11-13). They were protected by God, whose presence with them across the wild desert made it needless to ask for an escort of soldiers; but they had to take care of the precious vessels of His house. Popular piety is naturally marked by historical and cultural factors. This is the outcome of the deeper sense of the righteousness and grace of God. He is there, no matter where we go, no matter how much we might want to run away from Him.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. It was an increasingly frequent phenomenon in the art around 1400 that artists and those who commissioned work from them drew upon their own imagination and did not rely solely upon pictorial traditions, definite literary sources or theological concepts. When you volunteer for an event at your church and all that remains is the job of cleaning up, then you have a choice to make. Sharon and her husband, retired Colonel Garry Patterson, are the parents of three grown sons.

Whatever it is, His grace is available for you to accomplish it. Pride, arrogance, greed and selfishness are rampant today. It happened to be Easter Sunday, and the people had gathered in the local church. With our foolish pride, we are so often quick to call God into account because we believe He is being unfair to us! That same Holy Face inspires both great love of God in its majesty and great horror for sin in its disfigurement in our Lord’s Passion!

Preparing a devotional to deliver at a church service will require you to share your heart and biblical insight. We agree with Erich Zenger that verses 1-2 represent a believer’s emphatic confession of trust, a mode of speech that constitutes an essential part of lament by an individual (Ps 13:5). Marty and I rented the movie "Titanic," and for the first time I got to see the enormity of how awful this disaster was. These have been traditionally asserted and defended by the Church in the knowledge that "the honour rendered to the image is directed to the person represented"(20).

A Cup of Blessing—Have the trials of life made you to want to try harder and do better? Gn 28, 10-22; 35, 1-15) and Mamre (Gn 13, 18; 18, 1-15) where God showed himself to them and made a commitment to give them the "promised land". Things don’t always go our way, and when they don’t, it’s natural to feel the pull of darkness drawing us away from God’s Light. Gracious God, let the light of your face shine upon us. I cannot keep silent after experiencing what the Lord has chosen in these last days to touch the hearts of men!

He affectionately says the Lord brought her into the world with a drum roll. Listed below are a few of the staff picks that they regularly use and would like to recommend to others. Hence the Church refers to her as the Mater unitatis(407). No; you could not make a greater mistake. You must look away to the face of Jesus, and you will find that He, like a good shepherd, is looking carefully and lovingly down on you, and watching the stealthy movements of your foe.

As you read these verses you'll see that this worship service had it all. Dear Father, the world so often seems out of control. How often do we profess our strength of faith, only to cry out for reassurance with the very next breath? We may not always feel like praising God. Many times following a season of prayer and fasting we have a more defined understanding of the part that we play in the body of Christ and a greater sense of our particular spiritual giftings. (1 Corinthians 12) This chapter in the Gospel of Luke describes the circumstances surrounding the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry.

As we read yesterday, the nations of Israel and Judah abandoned covenant faithfulness to Yahweh, and as punishment for their sin, God allowed enemy nations to overrun the land, capture the people, and send them into exile. This world is antagonistic to God, so we should not be surprised when it is antagonistic to His children. Don’t live in defeat and agony as if Christ is still on in cross, or in the tomb. You’ll notice that some parts of the psalm are in bold print.
