Raymond Arroyo was at it again, this Thursday, July 31, as Personal Notes prepared this commentary for October 4.  Arroyo had Pat Buchanan attack Pope Francis sarcastically for opposing capitalism.  Buchanan also felt the Holy Father left something to be desired concerning his comments on climate change.  Arroyo anticipates papal fear-mongering was the Pole addresses the U.S. Congress.  My anticipation is that Pope Francis will present the Joy of the Gospel.

 

The reading in Genesis about the creation of Eve is about the common humanity of men and women.  Pope Francis is about that common humanity.  May the Lord bless us, all the days of our lives (Psalm 128: cf. 5).  A happy marriage is one of those happy blessings.  Hebrews 2:11 words the same idea as Genesis and Psalm 128.  He who consecrates and those who are being consecrated all have one origin.  Mark 10:8 words it this way, the two shall become one flesh.

In the gobbledygook prayer at Sunday Mass immediately following the Gloria, the Faithful hearing the 2011 Roman Missal can listen for “the abundance of your kindness.”[49]  The Responsorial Antiphon for this Sunday is May the Lord bless us all the days of our lives Psalm 128: cf. 5).[50]  Between November 25, 2011 and November 25, 2012, Personal Notes systematically examined the illiterate 2011 Missal.  For a more thorough examination of the illiterate 2011 Roman Missal, go to 1400 Missal: Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time 121007.pdf/htm at http://www.western-civilization.com/CBQ/Personal%20Notes/Personal%20Notes.htm.

 

 

 

This is a call for grace that some Black Baptists bring to mind with AThen answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things wich ye have spoken come upon me (Acts 8:24).[51] 

 

Due to greater responsiveness at the National Catholic Reporter blog, beginning with the Fourth Sunday in Lent, Reading 032B, March 15, 2015, my interest began shifting from annotating my index here, to engaging conversation there.  I may keep up the Bibliography, but without further comment.  Time will tell.

 

Raymond Arroyo, “The World Over,” on EWTN uses fear-mongering, rather than the Joy of the Gospel to entrance its viewers.  In the past, Arroyo has responded to my concerns, particularly the Reverend Robert A. Sirico, who rarely appears anymore, with his drivel.  Beginning, May 3, 2015, I intend to begin pointing out, here, the role fear, rather than joy, has in “The World Over.”  By July 31, I had identified a pattern of attack on Pope Francis by Arroyo.  The attack is on what the Pope is preaching about climate change and capitalism.  In the United States Republicans have firm opposition to such sermonizing, as the forthcoming campaign for the Republican nomination for President will show . . . or not.

 

As, on June 23, 2015, I prepared Reading 110B for the Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary time for July 26, I decided to begin reading unread articles from Theological Studies for two reasons.  The first is I have already read every article cited in the Catholic Biblical Quarterly.  The second is that traditionally Theological Studies articles have been more helpful to my prayer life.
