    Passiontide Chronology: Good Friday Msgr. Charles Pope • March 29, 2018 • Trial of Jesus, Duccio (1308-11)Jesus was arrested late Thursday evening. The Scriptures recount,They took Jesus to the high priest, and all the chief priests, the elders and the teachers of the law came together (Mark 14:53).According to Mark’s chronology there was a sham of a trial, based on false evidence and distortions of Jesus’ teachings.Now the chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were seeking testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, but they did not find any. For many bore false witness against Jesus, but their...

    ABSTRACT: Jesus of Nazareth underwent Jewish and Roman trials, was flogged, and was sentenced to death by crucifixion. The scourging produced deep stripelike lacerations and appreciable blood loss, and it probably set the stage for hypovolemic shock as evidenced by the fact that Jesus was too weakened to carry the crossbar (patibulum) to Golgotha. At the site of crucifixion his wrists were nailed to the patibulum, and after the patibulum was lifted onto the upright post, (stipes) his feet were nailed to the stipes. The major pathophysiologic effect of crucifixion was an interference with normal respirations. Accordingly, death resulted primarily...

    What is the connection between personal freedom and rising from the dead? When America was in its infancy and struggling to find a culture and frustrated at governance from Great Britain, the word most frequently uttered in speeches and pamphlets and editorials was not "safety" or "taxes" or "peace"; it was "freedom." Two acts of Parliament assaulted freedom and broke the bonds with the mother country irreparably. The first was the Stamp Act, which was enforced by British soldiers, who used general warrants issued by a secret court in London to rummage through the personal possessions of any colonists they...

    March 25, 2018 Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion At the Procession with Palms - Gospel Mk 11:1-10 When Jesus and his disciples drew near to Jerusalem,to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples and said to them, "Go into the village opposite you,and immediately on entering it, you will find a colt tethered on which no one has ever sat.Untie it and bring it here.If anyone should say to you,'Why are you doing this?' reply,'The Master has need of itand will send it back here at once.'"So they went off and...

    Has Jesus Saved You from This Present Evil Age? Msgr. Charles Pope • February 5, 2018 • Jesus Christ came to save us from our sins; that is certainly true. St. Paul said, The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost (1 Tim 1:15).St. Paul mentioned another truth, however, one we too often forget. It came during a benediction to the people Galatia:We wish you the favor and peace of God our Father and of the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself...

    Audio technology like Google Home and Amazon's Alexa are becoming a dominant source for information. But now, it appears one of the most common names is unknown to Google Home. And some people are sounding the alarm about what the technology tells you when you ask about Jesus. Brentwood resident David Sams owns a Google Home and an Amazon audio speaker. He says both give two different answers when asking "Who is Jesus Christ?" "I even asked Google who is David Sams? Google knew who I was, but Google did not know who Jesus was, Google did not know who...

    Where Are You from? A Reflection on Recent Tensions over Immigration, Race, and Ethnicity Msgr. Charles Pope • January 14, 2018 • A priest friend of mine who immigrated to this country from Jordan back in the 1970s is often asked, “Where are you from?” He humorously answers, “I am from my mother’s womb.”True enough! There is an even more fundamental answer, rooted in Scripture, which speaks to the origin of every human person: You are from the loving will and heart of God. Before you were ever formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you and thought about...

    A Portrait of Jesus the Preacher and Teacher Msgr. Charles Pope • January 10, 2018 • As a priest, I am called to preach and teach. In this, I must look to Jesus Christ as my model. Scripture speaks of His renown as a preacher and the eagerness with which many heard Him.And when Jesus finished these sayings, the crowds were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as their scribes (Mat 7:28).Sent to arrest him the temple guard returned empty handed saying: No one ever spoke like that man (Jn...

    The Federalist ^ | 01/03/2018 | David Marcus
    Controversy erupted over Christmas week when the Washington Post tweeted out an opinion article by Raphael Lataster they had published in 2014. It claims to show that the existence of Jesus as a historical figure is likely no more than a myth. Critics questioned the timing of the tweet as a slap in the face to Christians preparing to celebrate one of their holiest days.Possibly more importantly, many seized on the reaction to the 2014 publication. Historians, including a professor who had taught Lataster in a class about the historical Jesus, demolished the claims. Its ideas were described as...

    Why Was He Named Jesus and Not Emmanuel? Msgr. Charles Pope • January 2, 2018 • Yesterday we continued our meditation on the Eighth Day of Christmas by pondering the meaning of the Lord’s circumcision, which occurred on that day. In today’s post we consider another thing that took place on the same day: The name “Jesus” was announced and ascribed to Him.Was this really the best name for Him? Why did the angel say that He should be called Jesus? Was He not referred to by other names (e.g., Emmanuel) in the Old Testament? What is the significance...
