    BBFA3 – The Prayers of Exorcism and Anointing – Baptism: Born from Above w/ Deacon James Keating

    Episode 3 -Baptism: Born from Above– The importance of the community of faith.  Also the relevance and effect of the prayers of exorcism and anointing



    Deacon Keating takes a careful look at the Baptismal Rite and offers prayerful reflection and insight to help us live out the faith and nurture the domestic church.

    From the Baptismal Rite for Children:

    From the earliest times, the Church, to which the mission of preaching the Gospel and of baptizing was entrusted, has baptized not only adults but children as well. Our Lord said:

    ‘Unless a man is reborn in water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of

    God.’ The Church has always understood these words to mean that children should not

    be deprived of baptism, because they are baptized in the faith of the Church, a faith proclaimedfor them by their parents and godparents, who represent both the local Church

    and the whole society of saints and believers: ‘The whole Church is the mother of all and the mother of each.’

     To fulfill the true meaning of the sacrament, children must later be formed in the faith in

    which they have been baptized. The foundation of this formation will be the sacrament

    itself that they have already received. Christian formation, which is their due, seeks to lead

    them gradually to learn God’s plan in Christ, so that they may ultimately accept for themselvesthe faith in which they have been baptized

    Deacon James Keating, Ph.D., is a professor of Spiritual Theology and serves as a spiritual director at Kenrick Glennon Seminary in St. Louis, MO.

    St. Thomas Aquinas Novena Day 4 – Discerning Hearts Podcast

    Day 4

    St. Thomas you have taught that:

    “Many cry to the Lord that they may win riches, that they may avoid losses; they cry that their family may be established, they ask for temporal happiness, for worldly dignities; and, lastly, they cry for bodily health, which is the patrimony of the poor. For these and such like things many cry to the Lord; hardly one cries for the Lord Himself! How easy it is for a man to desire all manner of things from the Lord and yet not desire the Lord Himself! As though the gift could be sweeter than the Giver!”

    ― Thomas Aquinas, On Prayer and The Contemplative Life

    Through the intercession of St. Thomas Aquinas,

    Grant me grace, O merciful God,

    to desire ardently all that is pleasing to Thee,

    to examine it prudently,

    to acknowledge it truthfully,

    and to accomplish it perfectly,

    for the praise and glory of Thy name.

    In particular, please obtain the favor I ask during this novena.

    [Make your request here…]

    Grant me, O Lord my God,

    a mind to know you,

    a heart to seek you,

    wisdom to find you,

    conduct pleasing to you,

    faithful perseverance in waiting for you,

    and a hope of finally embracing you.

    Amen.

    Day 8

    One of the greatest proofs of love that Jesus displayed on the cross was putting up with the imperfections of His neighbor. There He showed us that He has a heart that loves us tenderly and watches over us kindly. He even showed His love for those who put Him to death. In those dire moments the Savior expressed thoughts of love even for his executioners, pardoning them in the very act of sinning! How petty-minded we are when we cannot bring ourselves to forget some injury received, even after a long time! Whoever sincerely pardons another calls down abundant blessings and perfectly imitates Christ. (Spiritual Treatises IV; O. VI, pp. 65-66)

    O blessed Francis de Sales, who on earth did excel in a life of virtue,

    especially in the love of God and neighbor,

    I earnestly ask you to take me under your compassionate care and protection.

    Obtain for me conversion of mind and heart.

    Grant that all people,

    especially (names of those whom you wish to include) may experience

    the depth of God’s redeeming and healing love.

    Teach me to fix my eyes on the things of heaven

    even as I walk each day with my feet planted firmly on the earth.

    Help me, through the practice of virtue and the pursuit of devotion,

    to avoid anything that would otherwise cause me to stumble

    in my attempt to follow Christ

    and to be an instrument of the Holy Spirit.

    Encouraged by your prayers and example,

    help me to live fully my sacred dignity

    with the hope of experiencing my sacred destiny:

    eternal life with God.

    Receive also this particular need or concern

    that I now lift up in prayer. (mention your particular need).

    O God, for the salvation of all,

    you desired that St. Francis de Sales—

    preacher, missionary, confessor, bishop and founder—

    should befriend many long the road to salvation.

    Mercifully grant that we,

    infused with the humility and gentleness of his charity,

    guided by his wisdom and sharing in his spirit

    may experience eternal life.

    We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    St. Francis de Sales, pray for us.

    SWR-6 – Introduction to Rules 3 to 8 – The Second Week Rules for the Discernment of Spirits w/ Fr. Timothy Gallagher – Discerning Hearts Podcast

    



    Episode 6 – Introduction to Rules 3 to 8 – The Second Week Rules for the Discernment of Spirits: An Ignatian Guide to a Greater Discernment of Spirits with Fr. Timothy Gallagher

    Fr. Gallagher offers an introduction to Rules 3 through 8 which primarily addresses the most common question in second mode discernment, “What about spiritual consolation with preceding cause?”













    Third Rule

    The third: with cause both the good angel and the bad can console the soul, for contrary ends: the good angel for the profit of the soul, that it may grow and rise from good to better; and the bad angel for the contrary, and later on to draw it to his damnable intention and malice. (331)

    Fourth Rule

    The fourth: It is proper to the bad angel, who takes on the appearance of an angel of light, to enter with the devout soul and to go out with himself; that is, to bring good and holy thoughts, conformed to such a just soul, and afterwards, little by little, he endeavors to go out, bringing the soul to his hidden deceits and perverse intentions. (332)

    Fifth Rule

    The fifth: We should give much attention to the course of the thoughts; and if the beginning, middle and end is all good, inclined to all good, it is a sign of the good angel; but if in the course of the thoughts that he brings, it ends in something bad, or distractive, or less good than the soul had proposed to do before, or if it weakens it, or disquiets, or troubles the soul, taking away the peace, tranquility and quiet, which it had before, it is a clear sign that it proceeds from the bad spirit, the enemy of our profit and eternal salvation. (333)













    Through a series of compelling conference talks, Fr. Gallagher carefully breaks open St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Second Week Rules for Greater Discernment.  This set of 8 “rules” (or guidelines) helps us to discern whether a seemingly good, noble, holy idea or feeling, often understood as a “spiritual consolation,” could be a working of the enemy intending to lead us astray. He shows how all of us can learn to listen to and follow God’s gentle leading in our daily lives.

    Day 3

    St. Thomas you have taught that:

    “God loves his creatures, and he loves each one the more, the more it shares his own goodness, which is the first and primary object of his love. Therefore he wants the desires of his rational creatures to be fulfilled because they share most perfectly of all creatures the goodness of God.

    And his will is an accomplisher of things because he is the cause of things by his will. So it belongs to the divine goodness to fulfill the desires of rational creatures which are put to him in prayer.”

    ― Thomas Aquinas, Faith, Reason and Theology

    Through the intercession of St. Thomas Aquinas,

    Grant me grace, O merciful God,

    to desire ardently all that is pleasing to Thee,

    to examine it prudently,

    to acknowledge it truthfully,

    and to accomplish it perfectly,

    for the praise and glory of Thy name.

    In particular, please obtain the favor I ask during this novena.

    and a hope of finally embracing you.

    St. Francis de Sales Novena Day 7

    Day 7

    Our intellect is ordinarily full of ideas, opinions and considerations suggested by self-love. This is the root of many conflicts within the soul, putting before us all sorts of reasons dictated by human prudence to justify our pretensions. People who make use of this false prudence, instead of enlightening their intellect, obscure it. They reject advice given to them and let those reasons prevail in their minds which support their own opinions, even wrong ones. Make use of the virtue of prudence because it is good, but make good use of it. Employ it only rarely, with simplicity, and solely for the glory of God. (Sermons 30; O. IX, pp. 297-298)

    O blessed Francis de Sales, who on earth did excel in a life of virtue,

    especially in the love of God and neighbor,

    I earnestly ask you to take me under your compassionate care and protection.

    Obtain for me conversion of mind and heart.

    Grant that all people,

    especially (names of those whom you wish to include) may experience

    the depth of God’s redeeming and healing love.

    Teach me to fix my eyes on the things of heaven

    even as I walk each day with my feet planted firmly on the earth.

    to avoid anything that would otherwise cause me to stumble

    in my attempt to follow Christ

    and to be an instrument of the Holy Spirit.

    Encouraged by your prayers and example,

    help me to live fully my sacred dignity

    with the hope of experiencing my sacred destiny:

    eternal life with God.

    that I now lift up in prayer. (mention your particular need).

    should befriend many long the road to salvation.

    Mercifully grant that we,

    infused with the humility and gentleness of his charity,

    guided by his wisdom and sharing in his spirit

    may experience eternal life.
