On Correcting those in Error

Once more into the incoherent thoughts that make up my Lectio Divina. This will be a shorter post as I only used one source for my writings - this time being the Reflection section of today's reading from the Prologue from Ohrid. As usual, my paraphrase will be first, followed by my thoughts and contemplations.

Did the Early Church have Women Priests?

I was going through my Google news feed when I happened across an article by LA Book Review called Recovering the Female Clerics of the Early Church. I only read a part way in to the article when I saw errors popping up left and right, and felt a need to revisit this topic on my blog - because when we encounter error we should fix it.

Enduring Wrongdoings

Once more from my Lectio Divina. I'm using a new journal to write out these thoughts, and this entry seems longer. So this post might be a bit longer than previous posts. I'm not complaining about that; I fully expect my writing and introspection to take a longer time the more I immerse myself in the practice and study of Lectio Divina.

On Relics

When I was reading the Prologue from Ohrid yesterday (16Jan2022), the first thing that I read was about the chains of the Apostle St. Peter. In this paragraph on St. Peter I saw a verse from Acts that I had never really considered before, and that being Acts 19:12.

On Humility, Obedience, and Freedom


 Once again, this blog post comes from my Lectio Divina. I was unable to attend church today due to a migraine, so I stayed home and read. Also, due to the migraine, this post is appearing later in the day than I typically like to post.

On looking to the Next Life

 

This is another blog post that comes from my Lectio Divina. This is once again taken from the Prologue from Ohrid for today's date (14 January) and comes specifically from the Homily. This will have a large portion of paraphrasing of the Homily before finally getting to my thoughts and reflections.
