LSB6 – Dealing with Serious Temptation – The Life of St. Benedict – The Holy Rule of St. Benedict with Fr. Mauritius Wilde O.S.B – Discerning Hearts Podcast

Dealing with Serious Temptation - The Life of St. Benedict - The Holy Rule of St. Benedict with Fr. Mauritius Wilde O.S.B - Discerning Hearts Podcast We continue our conversation on the life of St. Benedict by using the biography penned by St. Gregory the Great. In this episode St. Benedict deals with serious temptation. If God calls you to restrain from something for the sake of His Kingdom, for the greater Love, this can include suffering and tension. We often try to avoid that. St. Benedict desires to be free and detached. So Benedict takes action in order to be open to grace and the love of God. His method in this story may seem archaic to some, but it shouldn't stop us from examining how we deal with temptation.

CTD1 – The Desert of Consumerism – Crossing the Desert: Lent and Conversion with Deacon James Keating – Discerning Hearts Podcasts

Episode 1 - Crossing the Desert: Lent and Conversion – "The Desert of Consumerism".  Lent wants to remind us of our real identity. At first appearance a seeming “obligation,” Lent is actually a great gift. Are we brave enough to enter this desert, and then let it affect us so deeply as to turn us away from sin and false identities, turn us toward communion with the living God? The Church presents this season to us every year because it is hoped that this year will be our year to say “Yes” to Lent’s call to repentance. Lent should not be something we go through alone, but together. As the Hebrews wandered the desert for forty years, so we should enter Lent through the ecclesial community and share its challenges with brothers and sisters in Christ. Lent should not be what the elderly man in the barbershop characterized as “life as usual.” With our goal being moral conversion, let us now turn to see how God can facilitate that conversion when we take on a “lenten mind.” The post CTD1 – The Desert of Consumerism – Crossing the Desert: Lent and Conversion with Deacon James Keating – Discerning Hearts Podcasts https://www.discerninghearts.com/catholic-podcasts/ctd1-the-desert-of-consumerism-crossing-the-desert-lent-and-conversion-with-deacon-james-keating-discerning-hearts-podcasts/ appeared first on Discerning Hearts Catholic Podcasts https://www.discerninghearts.com/catholic-podcasts.

Sloth Can Separate Us from God – Building a Kingdom of Love with Msgr. Esseff – Discerning Hearts Podcasts

Msgr. Esseff reflects on the major area that separates us from God...it's sloth. What is the truth about sloth? What does laziness really look like? To depend on oneself more than on God...."that I can do anything", "I can do it"....the man of faith says "God can do it". Jesus said without the Father, he could do nothing. That He does only what the Father tells him. The solution to sloth is obedience...the obedience to the will of the Father. Msgr. Esseff takes a strong look at King David and his actions after he becomes king...a leader who became consumed with himself. Then he looks at a true leader...Jesus. Msgr. has a strong message and challenge for families, our country, the world and our Church. The post Sloth Can Separate Us from God – Building a Kingdom of Love with Msgr.

SD4 – Embracing Consolation, Understanding Desolation – Spiritual Desolation: Be Aware, Understand, Take Action with Fr. Timothy Gallagher – Discerning Hearts Podcast

Embracing Consolation, Understanding Desolation - Spiritual Desolation: Be Aware, Understand, Take Action with Fr. Timothy Gallagher - Discerning Hearts Podcast Fr. Gallagher offers an in-depth overall review of Rule 4 on Spiritual Desolation. From  Setting the Captives Free: Personal Reflections on Ignatian Discernment of Spirits Rule 4 is the companion to rule 3 and describes its exact opposite: spiritual desolation. As in rule 3, Ignatius does not give a definition but rather a list of experiences of spiritual desolation. I have italicized each: Fourth Rule. The fourth is of spiritual desolation. I call desolation all the contrary of the third rule, such as darkness of soul, disturbance in it, movement to low and earthly things, disquiet from various agitations and temptations, moving to lack of confidence, without hope,without love, finding oneself totally slothful, tepid, sad, and as if separated from one’s Creator and Lord. For just as consolation is contrary to desolation, in the same way, the thoughts that come from consolation are contrary to the thoughts that come from desolation.
