    St. Philip Neri

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org
    Philip Neri was a sign of contradiction, combining popularity with piety against the background of a corrupt Rome and a disinterested clergy, the whole post-Renaissance malaise. At an early age, he abandoned the chance to become a businessman, moved to Rome from Florence and devoted his life and individuality to God. After three years of philosophy and theology studies, he gave up any thought of ordination. The next 13 years were spent in a vocation unusual at the time—that of a layperson actively engaged in prayer and the apostolate.
    As the Council of Trent (1545-63) was reforming the Church on a doctrinal level, Philip’s appealing personality was winning him friends from all levels of society, from beggars to cardinals. He rapidly gathered around himself a group of laypersons won over by his audacious spirituality. Initially they met as an informal prayer and discussion group, and also served poor people in Rome.
    Some of his followers became priests and lived together in community. This was the beginning of the Oratory, the religious institute he founded. A feature of their life was a daily afternoon service of four informal talks, with vernacular hymns and prayers. Giovanni Palestrina was one of Philip’s followers, and composed music for the services.
    Philip’s advice was sought by many of the prominent figures of his day. He is one of the influential figures of the Counter-Reformation, mainly for converting to personal holiness many of the influential people within the Church itself. His characteristic virtues were humility and gaiety.

    St. Rose of Lima - patroness of Latin America

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org
    St. Rose of Lima is the patroness of Latin America and the Philippines. This South American Saint's real name was Isabel, but she was such a beautiful baby that she was called Rose, and that name remained. As she grew older, she became more and more beautiful, and one day, her mother put a wreath of flowers on her head to show off her loveliness to friends. But Rose had no desire to be admired, for her heart had been given to Jesus.
    St. Rose worked hard to support her poor parents and she humbly obeyed them, except when they tried to get her to marry. That she would not do. Her love of Jesus was so great that when she talked about Him, her face glowed and her eyes sparkled.
    Rose had many temptations from the devil, and there were also many times when she had to suffer a feeling of terrible loneliness and sadness, for God seemed far away. Yet she cheerfully offered all these troubles to Him. In fact, in her last long, painful sickness, this heroic young woman use to pray: "Lord, increase my sufferings, and with them increase Your love in my heart."

    Parents Rights and Vaccination

    in Christianity

    Big Question: Should Parents Have The Right To Refuse Vaccines For Their Children?
    The Anti-Vaccine Generation: How Movement Against Shots Got Its Start
    Mistrust and misinformation give a shot in the arm to measles vaccine naysayers.
    By Laura Parker , National Geographic
    PUBLISHED Fri Feb 06 16:03:00 EST 2015
    You could call New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul members of the "vax generation."
    Born in 1962 and 1963, respectively, they were in grade school when the newly developed measles vaccine became the life-saving advance that protected millions from a highly contagious childhood disease. Though not as scary as polio, it was potent enough to strike four million kids, hospitalize 48,000 of them with complications, and kill more than 400 every year.
    That both men stoked an anti-vax movement this week by suggesting in the middle of a national measles outbreak that parents should be allowed to choose whether to vaccinate their children speaks to a generational shift in thinking about science and politics. Parents should have "some measure of choice" in vaccinating their children, Christie told a reporter, while Paul called the decision not to vaccinate "an issue of freedom."

    The Sharpening 034: What Loving God Really Means

    in Christianity

    What is the true definition of love from God's perspective? How can we obtain the highest form of love possible for our Father? How do we know if we truly love with God now? What does it mean that God is love? How is His love made manifest in our lives? Was God just as loving in the Old Testament and He is in the New Testament? Why does there seem to be a difference if God never changes?
    All of these questions and more are addressed in this epsiode of The Sharpening. Learn how to love God and fulfill His commandment of loving Him more than anything else. Discover this true and personal love for yourself, in your own life, without need of an intermediary. Gain a more fulfilling and purposeful relationship with your Creator. This is must-have information for any child of God, any servant of Jesus Christ, and any partaker of His Holy Spirit.
    Through important, yet commonly glossed over, Biblical teachings, you will learn what true love from a true Father is and how to possess it for yourself. This episode will teach you how to have a closer relationship with God, understand seemingly confusing inconsistencies between the Old and New Testaments, and even how to witness to others effectively.

I only didn't actively pursue it because I did not want to added any feelings of obligation to those who choose to donate.

    WARNING: WHERE YOU PLACE THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH DETERMINES YOUR DOCTRINE

    in The Bible

    Pre, Post or Mid? I was talking with someone awhile back about the Rapture of the Church, and they told me that they were "Pan-Trib". I thought they were just being funny, but as it turned out, they were quite serious. When I asked for an explanation, they said "it doesn't matter to me when it happens, I'm sure it will all pan out in the end". Well, ok, ha ha, I get it. But you know what? Where you place the Rapture of the Church on the timeline is very important, because it will also force you to change your doctrine on a number of other issues as well. On tonight's program, we go through the Bible to see exactly how and where your doctrine changes when you choose a position for the timing of the Rapture. 
    Tonight's Topic: The Importance Of Understanding Where The Rapture Of The Church Occurs On The End Times Timeline
    "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:17,18 (KJV)

    Should African American Muslims Accept Second Class Status in Muslim America?

    in Islam

    Should African American and convert Muslims accept their second class status in Muslim America? Should there be silence about racism in our practice of Islam, or should we talk about it, and maybe even do something about it. How did it happen that we have the two Muslim Americas? Are racial relations in Muslim America improving, or are they deteriorating? Who’s at fault here? Or is it really nobodies fault. Why is it that there are Back mosques, Pakistani mosques, Arab mosques and Asian mosques? Is this the way it’s supposed to be? Is there a better way forward? We will discuss these questions and more on our next live broadcast Of the MUSLIM REVIEW WITH YOUR HOST IMAM LUQMAN AHMAD.

About Religion

Few things in life set us apart as distinctly as what we believe (or don't believe). From the most fervent among us to those just beginning to explore the possibilities, religion is a powerful force in our lives. BlogTalkRadio is where believers and nonbelievers of every denomination gather day in and day out to find resources, preach to others practicing and discuss the specific belief systems that guide us, bind us and often divide us. Christians, Pagans, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Pantheists, Sikhs, Jews, Wiccans, Unitarians, Satanists, Druids, Agnostics, Atheists, Secular Humanists and more will find likeminded friends to dialogue with, whether in heated debates or in collective prayer. You'll hear from bestselling authors, world leaders and kindred followers for inspiration and fellowship. And for those listeners and hosts who consider themselves spiritual but not religious, we've even got a separate Spirituality category to explore beliefs on your own terms.
