SUNDAYS SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT

About our drink:

The “single malt” designation means that the whiskey was distilled in a single distillery. GullyTown is the first single malt whiskey that Restless Spirits has produced — the rest of their line is exclusive imports from Ireland or blends. Find out more here.

About our gear:

A cordless drill is the most important power tool you’ll buy. It’s the one you’ll rely on for big projects, such as building a deck and remodeling a kitchen, and for smaller tasks, like installing fixtures and assembling furniture. You might even need your drill to service other tools. See which cordless drills consumerreports.com suggests.

About our topic:

Sundays have to look different than the rest of the week. It is even more of a challenge currently with public Holy Masses canceled. We talk about it this week and give some ideas on what to do.

Virtue of Humility

Adam goes off the deep end in the topic so we had to extend the episode.

The book we discussed is only $5.65 currently on Amazon.

"Humility of Heart" by Fr. Cajetan Mary da Bergamo

“In Paradise, there are many Saints who never gave alms on earth: their poverty justified them. There are many Saints who never mortified their bodies by fasting, or wearing hair shirts: their bodily infirmities excused them. There are many Saints too who were not virgins: their vocation was otherwise. But in Paradise, there is no Saint who was not humble.” – Fr. Cajetan Mary da Bergamo

Twelve Steps of Humility

Step 1. A first step is taken when one consciously obeys all of God’s commandments, never ignoring them but always holding within himself a fear of God in his heart.

Step 2. The second step is achieved when one thinks not about pleasing himself but instead follow the injunction of the Lord.

Step 3. The third step is reached when out of love of God, one obediently submits to a superior in imitation of the Lord.

Step 4. The fourth step is achieved when one, under obedience, patiently and quietly endures all thing that are inflicted on him.  It should make no difference whether the trials are painful, unjust or even completely beyond his understanding; he should neither tire nor give up.

Step 5. The fifth step is reached when one humbly discloses to his superior all the evil thoughts in his heart, as well as those faults and evil acts he has actually committed.

Step 6. To achieve the sixth step one must without qualms accept all that is crude and harsh; at all times he considers himself a poor and worthless workman.

Step 7. The seventh step is attained when one not only confesses that he is an inferior and common wretch, but believes it to his very core.  He must be willing to humble himself.

Step 8. One reaches the eighth step of humility when he does only that which is demanded by the common rule of his seniors.

Step 9. The ninth step can be achieved when one, practicing silence, only speaks when asked a question.

Step 10. The tenth step is climbed when one restrains himself from undue laughter and frivolity.

Step 11. To reach the eleventh step one must speak gently, without jests, but simply, seriously, tersely, rationally and softly.

Step 12. The final step is attained only when one can at all times show humility not only in his appearance and actions, but also in his heart.

If you missed our first episode talking about Benedictine, Franciscan, Dominican, and Ignatian, you can check it out here.

Carmelite

Motto – Zelo zelatus sum pro Domino Deo exercituum – “With zeal have I been; zealous for the Lord; God of hosts”

Do you feel like the attachments of day-to-day life get in the way of your relationship with Christ? Do you feel called to live a life of asceticism? Do the writings of St. John of the Cross and St. Theresa of Avila speak to you in a special way?

Interior journey – search for God inside of oneself.

meditation on the word of God, liturgy, silence and solitude, and asceticism.

Carmelite spirituality proposes silence and solitude as necessary pre-requisites for prayer and contemplation.

Not only exterior silence but interior silence as well. This is why solitude is important

An emphasis in seeing suffering as part of God’s plan for our own sanctification

“Dark night”

Also St. Therese of Lisieux 

Opus Dei

Motto – Opus Dei – the work of God

Officially the “Prelature of the Holy Cross”

Are you convinced that holiness is found in boardrooms and lunchrooms as well as chapels and churches? Consider the way of Opus Dei.

Founded in Spain in 1928 by St. Josemaria Escriva. The guiding principle behind the movement is that holiness is attainable by everyone, and ordinary life is the way to sanctity.

According to John Cloverdale, law professor at Seton Hall University and author of “Uncommon Faith, The Early Years of Opus Dei (1928-1943)”

Three points characterize Opus Dei:

First, a stress on integrating the secular into one’s spiritual life, rather than seeing everyday life as a problem to be overcome, it is part and parcel of where we are to sanctify ourselves.

“Second, an emphasis on work, understood broadly, as the whole range of activities, seen as a path to sanctity. [God] wants us to do it well and offer it to him. The first step is to do it and do it well.

“Third, a very strong stress on the reality of being sons and daughters of God that gives an optimistic and positive tone to love. God really does love us and is concerned about each of us.”

Salesian

Motto – Da mihi Animas cætera tolle – “Give me souls, take away the rest”

Are you a people person who experiences God most in acts of gentleness, compassion, and optimism?

The Salesians were founded by St. John Bosco is honor of St. Francis of DeSales.

Much like the Opus Dei, Salesian spirituality is one for the everyday life. A unique emphasis of the salesian spirituality is an outward disposition of humility, gentleness, civility, and optimism. 

HUMILITY – living in self-truthfulness about who we are, both positive and negative

Humility leads us to GENTLENESS towards our neighbor. Because one is so aware of his or her own needs and weakness, one extends to another person similar understanding and compassion.

CIVILITY and RESPECT must mark the behavior of a truly “gentle” devout Christian.

Because we have a Savior, we are always OPTIMISTIC.

Vincentian 

No motto associated with it, but the Missionaries of Charity are the most well know (at least in this country) and their motto is Caritas Christi Urget nos – The charity of Christ urges us

Do you feel an attraction to the corporal works of mercy? Especially works of service for the poor?

St. Vincent teaches us to see Christ in the poor and suffering, so much so that the poor become our Lords and Masters and we their servants. Vincentian spirituality is centered around this concept. Jesus said “Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” (see Matthew 25: 34-40).

Dr. Ray brings to bear his decades of clinical experience and his experience as a father of ten with some of the hardest questions of modern parenting:

  • How do you manage kids access to pop culture and to the corporations who all want a piece of their allowance?
  • How do you respond to others, including your own family, who don’t approve of your countercultural parenting?
  • How do you handle the overabundance of stuff toys, clothes, technology that clogs up your family’s everyday life?
  • When do you give (or take away) a smartphone?
  • How much freedom do you give your kids to choose their own friends and when do you step in when they make wrong choices?
  • What are the habits of mind you need to form in them so they can stand strong against a morally and spiritually corrosive culture?

Raising Upright Kids in an Upside-Down World is a clarion call for strong, confident parenting in confusing times. More importantly, Dr. Ray gives you the resources to grow in that confidence: the knowledge of an expert, the insight of an experienced clinician, and the wisdom of decades of fatherhood. This is a book for parents who aim to form children who value the things of God, no matter the work and the effort. Dr. Ray is here to tell you: it’s worth it.

Different Catholic spiritualities

Why concern oneself with a certain spirituality?

               -God has given us different gifts and talents

               -understanding which spirituality speaks to us can help us discern God’s will

What is the difference?

 The spiritualties, in and of themselves, all represent an orthodox approach to the faith, and while there is much overlap between them, each one puts an emphasis on different aspects of the faith

How do choose?

What are your primary struggles? One might help present a more direct path toward overcoming

Which one fits your personality type? Brings you closest to God?

How to Enjoy

Yippee Ki-Yay shows best at room temp, neat. With a little time in the glass sitting idle (just a few minutes) the bouquet really opens up to it’s full potential

The Name

Where did “Yippee Ki-Yay” come from? Is it a real expression of joy popular with cowboys in the 19th century Western United States? Is it part of the greatest one liner in movie history? Was it influenced by the phrase ‘Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay’ from the 1936 hit song “I’m an Old Cow Hand from the Rio Grande” about a 20th-century cowboy who has little in common with cowpunchers of old and sung by Bing Crosby in the film “Rhythm on the Range” (also sung later by Roy Rogers and Frank Sinatra) and considered one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time? We’re not sure. But we are sure we like how we feel when we say it… and recommend you use it every chance you get.

Back Label Story

We confess…we didn’t coin the term “Yippee Ki-Yay”. Moreover, we didn’t paint the picture on the front label. It’s an historic poster (Gift of The Coe Foundation and Henry B. Balink) now at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming (centerofthewest.org, you really ought to visit). Furthermore, we didn’t distill the whiskeys in this bottle – it’s our Double Rye! However, we did come up with a combination that we think will make you say…Yippee Ki-Yay drinkers of horrible tasting cheap flavored uisge beatha! One day, just for fun, we put Double Rye! into oak barrels that had originally been used to age two different types of wine and discovered an all-natural, not disgustingly-sweet sipper for the rest of us.

The Catholic Man Show - Sacred Liturgy with Bishop Edward Slattery

November 18, 2019

Bishop Emeritus Edward J. Slattery joins us to talk about the sacred liturgy.

About our drink: N/A 

About the gear: N/A

About our topic: The Sacred Liturgy

A few things we discuss in the episode:

  1. Ad Orientem: Ad orientem, Latin for “to the east”, is a posture in Christian liturgy, today generally unrelated to the geographical east. Practically, it only means that the priest offers Mass (Eucharist) on the same side of the altar as the people, facing the same direction as the people, which, depending on the orientation of the church and the position of the altar within it, can be towards the west or any other direction rather than to the east and thus no longer has the significance it once had of facing east, the rising sun, which, according to a traditionalist Catholic view is symbolic of the “New Jerusalem”, with the priest leading his flock as the Good Shepherd does.
  2. The Spirit of the Liturgy by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger
  3. The Traditional Latin Mass – The Traditional Latin Mass was the exclusive form celebrated during the Second Vatican Council. As a matter of fact, most of the changes that have been introduced by the 1960’s liturgical reform took place in the years after the Second Vatican Council. The Council itself never abolished the traditional liturgy, and its famous document about the Liturgy of the Church, “Sacrosanctum Concillium,” mentions only the possibility of some adaptations but never called for the change of language nor the rite of the Holy Mass as a whole.It is, therefore, very desirable that all the faithful should know the traditional liturgy and should be able to understand its significance and its importance for the future of Holy Mother Church.
