    Finding Forgiveness Through the Magnificence of Mercy - A Homily for the 24th Sunday of the Year Msgr. Charles Pope • September 16, 2017 • The Gospel this Sunday draws us into a remarkably sensitive area of the faith, that of forgiving others who may have harmed us. There are many who been authentically hurt and others who in offering forgiveness will become vulnerable to further harm. Forgiveness is something we experience as a very personal call; in some cases, it may be the most challenging thing we are ever asked to do.I have titled this Homily carefully; if...

    Twelve seconds of silence is an awkward eternity on television. Amr Adeeb, perhaps the most prominent talk show host in Egypt, leaned forward as he searched for a response. The Copts of Egypt are made of steel! he finally uttered. Moments earlier, Adeeb was watching a colleague in a simple home in Alexandria speak with the widow of Naseem Faheem, the guard at St. Marks Cathedral in the seaside Mediterranean city. On Palm Sunday, the guard had redirected a suicide bomber through the perimeter metal detector, where the terrorist detonated. Likely the first to die in the blast,...
  • The Vision of Satan and the High Priest...Zechariah pt 4

    The first three visions of Zechariah must have comforted the remnant of the nation of Israel, as they picked through the ruined walls of Jerusalem, once known as, the city of the Great King. Jerusalem was in ruins, in appearance she was far from being the Joy of the Whole earth , the city of our God, rather she was like a shattered and ruined widow, sitting in the ashes of her mourning. How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! how is she become as a widow! she that was great among the nations, and princess...

  • Pope extends power to forgive abortion to all priests

    VATICAN CITY, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Pope Francis on Monday extended indefinitely to all Roman Catholic priests the power to forgive abortion, a right previously reserved for bishops or special confessors. Francis, who has made a more inclusive and forgiving Roman Catholic Church a characteristic of his papacy, made the announcement in a document known as an "apostolic letter" after Sunday's close of the Church's "Holy Year of Mercy". He said he wanted to "restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life" but "there is no sin...

    NORTH LITTLE ROCK,Ark.--The mother of an 18-year-old murder victim says she forgives the man accused of killing her daughter. The shooting rattled a North Little Rock neighborhood earlier this week; many called it an act of domestic violence. The mother of the victim says this is not the first time she has dealt with the murder of a loved one. She says she is relying on family and her faith after seeing her brother, her husband and now her daughter murdered in the last few years. Family pictures lined the table inside the home of an 18-year-old whose life was...

    We are Christians. Let's teach America and the World about Repentance and Forgiveness. From today's Old Testament Reading-- 2 Kings 5:14-17, "His flesh became again like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean of his leprosy.".....Someone out there, ask Donald J. Trump (as a Christian to Ask for Forgiveness). Then, we can all move on from these terrible words uttered 11 years ago. Remember, Donald uttered terrible words and his heart was in a bad place. They were words. No one died as in Bengazi, due to the selfish acts of Hillary. Hillary has not admitted to...

    "[Love] does not take into account a wrong suffered" (1 Cor. 13:5). If you love someone, you wont keep a record of their offenses. It is reported that when the Moravian missionaries first went to the Eskimos, they couldn't find a word in their language for forgiveness. They had to combine a series of shorter words into one compound word: Issumagijoujungnainermik. Although the word appears formidable, its meaning is beautiful, being translated: "Not-being-able-to-think-about-it-anymore." You've probably noticed that unforgiving people usually have good memories. Some can hold a grudge for a lifetime. But love never keeps a record of wrongs committed...

    "In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: . . . And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." (Colossians 1:14, 20) John introduced Jesus to the world at His baptism by saying, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). He was known prophetically as a lamb even before then. "He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep...

Strangely, I still get invited to family functions by them as if nothing happened. But I don’t want anything to do with them.

Now, we who love you are miserable? Wouldn’t it be better to suffer than to sin? Which is worse, suffering or sin? Which is the cause and which...

    After months of reflection, Donald Trump says he still doesn't regret his decision not to ask God for forgiveness for his sins. In an interview on Sunday with CNN, the Republican presidential frontrunner said that he does not regret never asking God for forgiveness, partially because he says he doesn't have much to apologize for. "I have great relationship with God. I have great relationship with the Evangelicals," Trump said in the interview before pivoting to his poll numbers among Evangelical voters. "I like to be good. I don't like to have to ask for forgiveness. And I am good....

    Jesus asked God the Father to forgive others. He never asked anyone to forgive Him. Well, okay, he asked Mary Magdalen to forgive Him, but that was only a movie. To be serious, there is a simple and obvious reason why Jesus never asked anyone to forgive Him: He never committed a sin. That's because, while fully man, he was also fully God, and God doesn't commit sins, even, you know, small ones. Incredibly, the Pope (the Pope!) doesn't seem to understand or believe this. In his homily for the feast of the Holy Family he claimed (emphasis in red):...

    None of us is 'innocent.' We have all gone our own way and done our own thing with disastrous results. In spite of the foolish notion often portrayed by some, no nation, no culture, no individual is 'basically good.' This world is filled with evil, and at one time or another, we've all had a hand in it. As the prophet Isaiah puts it, 'We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.' Isaiah wasn't merely painting a picture of sinful...

    One of the most unpopular and difficult virtues of Christianity is forgiveness. As C.S. Lewis put it, Every one says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive. Sadly, our personal lives recently have been an exercise in forgiving the unforgivable.
