"I would walk over to the children needing my assistance. I would quietly place my hand on their shoulder or their back. I would bend down and speak to them in a kind and respectful tone.

I would tell them what I need from them and give them suggestions for how to change their behavior. This simple tip worked 90% of the time. How had I forgotten this simple tip?"

Good advice for when children are rowdy or you need them to do something.  I remember bringing my boys closer--at least sometimes!
The thing that constantly gets me, is that I should know better. I was a teacher for 12 years. Yelling was not my go to tactic, yet in my home I let it overtake me.

I pray today that all Jesuits would return to the roots of their great founder!

St. Ignatius of Loyola
St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556) was born at the castle of Loyola in Basque Country, Spain, the youngest of thirteen children. As a young aristocrat of his day he sought after military prowess, vainglory, and fame, which caused him to become a knight at the age of seventeen. He was known to be a fancy dresser, an expert dancer, a womanizer, sensitive to insult, and involved in criminal behavior. During a period of convalescence after being wounded in battle, he read a collection of saint biographies and a Life of Christ. These books profoundly affected him and he experienced a conversion of heart. He hung up his military garments before an image of the Virgin Mary and desired to pattern his life after the great saints. After experiencing a vision of the Virgin Mary and the infant Jesus he lived for a time as an ascetic in a cave. It was during this time that he formulated his famous Spiritual Exercises, the spiritual center of the religious order he would later establish. He then took a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and went on to study theology for many years. During his studies he gathered a group of six like-minded men and founded the Society of Jesus, today known as the Jesuits. They went as missionaries all over the world to preach the Gospel, especially focusing on education. The Jesuits today have over 500 universities, 30,000 members, and teach over 200,000 students a year. St. Ignatius of Loyola's feast day is July 31st.

Meditation of the Day

"Jesus is nailed to the cross...Let us halt before this image of pain, before the suffering Son of God. Let us look upon him at time of presumptuousness and pleasure, in order to learn to respect limits and to see the superficiality of all merely material goods. Let us look upon him at times of trial and tribulation and realize that it is then that we are closest to God.. Let us nail ourselves to him, resisting the temptation to stand apart or to join others in mocking him."

— Pope Benedict XVI, p.104-05

Pope Francis has rejected the “simplistic” belief that large families are among the causes of poverty, stressing that economic systems which create a culture of waste are to blame.

As St. Thérèse of Lisieux stated, “I have many distractions, but as soon as I am aware of them, I pray for those people, the thought of whom is diverting my attention. In this way, they reap the benefit of my distractions.” http://bit.ly/1z5xCL8

Exodus, the movie--evaluated.
Brad Miner reviews the new film by Ridley Scott: Exodus: Gods and Kings. He saw it in 3-D. And guess what? God leads his people out of bondage. God does!
