    Dear friends, I received this email from a priest friend in my diocese on April 29, 2017. After his short email there is my answer. - - - Hi Father Joe, Let us remain close and united in prayer, in particular in the Mass, as the disciples of Emmaus, sad, tired, disheartened and disenchanted but still capable to let their hearts be enkindled by the words of Jesus and to recognize Him in the breaking of the bread. Have a nice Sunday Father _____ - - - - - - - Here is my response: (Note: When pasting this document...

[Luke 23: 34] O loving tenderness of Jesus towards men! Saint Augustine says that when the Savior was injured by His enemies, He besought pardon for them; for He thought not so much of the injuries He received from them, and the death they inflicted upon Him, as upon the love which brought Him to die for them....

    Four Immediate Effects of the Passion Msgr. Charles Pope • April 12, 2017 • Let’s continue our consideration of the Passion with a text describing the aftermath of Jesus’ crucifixion. The Gospel of Matthew recounts four immediate results of Jesus’ death, and while they describe historical events, they also signal deeper spiritual truths.And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split, and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many...
  • He was Despised...Servant Songs pt 12

    Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.(Isaiah 53:1-3)It is the climax of human history, the apocalypse, the very...

    A student from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida claims he was suspended for challenging his Muslim professor’s anti-Christian assertions, including her assertion that Jesus’ crucifixion never occurred. Marshall Polston, 20, is claiming that his Middle Eastern Humanities professor also told students that Jesus’ disciples “did not believe he was God.” Polston, a self-described Christian who has toured the Middle East, says he is familiar with the Muslim culture. “Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad,” Polston told the Central Florida Post when asked about his professor’s comments. “Whether religious or not,...

    Just last evening, I posted an article about how the UN disgracefully named Saudi Arabia to head its human rights panel. So how do the Saudis plan on celebrating this achievement? By executing a teenager via crucifixion, naturally. I covered this story back in May in the piece, Not ISIS Saudi Arabia Prepares to Execute and Publicly Display Beheaded Body of Political Activist in Crucifixion. Here are a few excerpts: The Saudis have received a lot of bad press as of late due to it consistently breaking its own records for beheadings, but sometimes a simple beheading isnt sufficient....

    Where Is Jesus Between His Death and Resurrection? By: Msgr. Charles PopeWhere is Christ after He dies on Friday afternoon and before He rises on Easter Sunday? Both Scripture and Tradition answer this question. Consider the following excerpt from a second century sermon as well as this meditation from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.Ancient Homily for Holy Saturday (ca. 2nd century A.D.):Today a great silence reigns on earth, a great silence and a great stillness. A great silence because the King is asleep. The earth trembled and is still because God has fallen asleep in the flesh and he has raised up...

    Jesus of Nazareth was executed today on the orders of the Roman State. Method of execution: Crucifixion. The charge under Roman law was treason, and under Herodian law blasphemy against the Temple. The evidence against this anarchist was so strong that authorities of both the Roman State and the Kingdom of Herod concurred with the arrest and execution, and he was subjected to trial by both governments. And in a rare uprising of spontaneous collective justice, the mass of people who were gathered for Passover called for his execution as well. The mob affirmed their loyalty to the state, chanting,...

    Sermon1. Tonight we remember the death of our Lord and Saviour. Death is often a horrible experience. What makes our Lords death even more horrible is that He was killed, murder by the brutal act of crucufixion. 2. This evening, we ask - who could have done such a thing? Who killed Jesus? There are many we might blame. 3. Perhaps we would blame the Pharisees and the religious leaders. Jesus had denounced their false worship and religion and had become a threat to them Mat 12:14 But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus. After...

    Christ’s Words from the Cross: 7 Weapons of Victory Over Evil Kathleen BeckmanIn Venerable Fulton Sheen’s classic, The Life of Christ, we read, “He had already said that no one would take away his life from Him, but that he would lay it down Himself. Death did not lay its hand on his shoulder and give him a summons to depart. He went out to meet death. In order to show that he would not die from exhaustion, but by an act of the will, his last words were spoken.”From the pulpit of the Cross, Christ’s seven last words...
