    Passiontide Chronology: Walking with the Lord on Monday of Holy Week Msgr. Charles Pope • March 25, 2018 • According to Matthew 21:10-17, Mark 11:15-17, and Luke 19:45-46, Jesus returns to Jerusalem today. Seeing shameful practices in the Temple area, He cleanses it.

    Violet Simple TODAY WE BEGIN, as does the holy Gospel, to number the days which precede the Death, the Sacrifice, of the Lamb of God. St. John, in the 12th Chapter of his Gospel, tells us that this is the Sixth day before the Pasch. Jesus is in Bethania, where a feast is being given in his honor. Lazarus, he whom Jesus has restored to life, was present at this repast, which was given in the house of Simon the Leper. Martha is busy looking after the various arrangements; her sister, Mary Magdalene, has a heavenly presentiment that the...

    Violet Simple THE STATION AT ROME is in the Church of Saint Stephen, on Monte Celio. By a sort of prophetic presentiment, this Church of the great Proto-Martyr was chosen as the place where the Faithful were to assemble on the Friday of Passion Week, which was to be, at a future time, the Feast consecrated to the Queen of Martyrs.

    Violet Semidouble (Privilege of the First Class) Hodie, si vocem Domini audieritis, nolite obdurare corda vestra. Today, if ye shall hear the voice of the Lord, harden not your hearts. THE HOLY CHURCH begins her Night Office of this Sunday with these impressive words of the royal Prophet. Formerly, the faithful considered it their duty to assist at the Night Office, at least on Sundays and Feasts; they would have grieved to have lost the grand teachings given by the Liturgy. Such fervor has long since died out; the assiduity at the Offices of the Church, which was the...

    Mel Gibson confirmed he's working on a sequel to his 2004 film "Passion of the Christ." "And you know, it's not the 'Passion 2.' It's called 'The Resurrection,'" Gibson told evangelist Greg Laurie at SoCal Harvest, according to IndieWire.com. Gibson explained that the sequel will focus on Jesus' resurrection. "Of course, that's a very big subject and it needs to be looked at because we don't want to just do a simple rendering of it you know, read what happened," the actor added. "Passion of the Christ" screenwriter Randall Wallace told The Hollywood Reporter that "there's a lot more...

    When Jim Caviezel was young, he had to stay home to study Spanish while his family went to see John Paul II during his visit to Vancouver, British Colombia. He missed out on that chance to see the pope. But 20 years later, having a well-established career in the cinema and having earned the right to play the role of Jesus of Nazareth in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, he got a second chance.There are two parts to his meeting with John Paul II, which Caviezel recounted on separate occasions. One is serious; the other hilarious. Together...

    IntroductionStatue of Christ on the cross Christ on the cross The Passion of Christ is the story of Jesus Christ's arrest, trial and suffering. It ends with his execution by crucifixion.

    While "Noah" may or may not be having a hard time winning over Christian audiences, "Son of God," in theaters this weekend, appears to be enjoying the favor of the faithful nationwide. But can the new PG-13 Jesus film unseat 2004's "The Passion of the Christ" as the top-grossing Christian film of all time? Christian producers Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "The Voice") and Roma Downey ("Touched by an Angel") have rallied the same network of powerful and influential Christian leaders that in 2013 got behind their History Channel miniseries, "The Bible," for a "Theater Take-Over" campaign in anticipation of the nationwide...

For many dogs have encompassed Me * the council of the malignant hath besieged Me. I have given My body to the strikers * and My cheeks to them that plucked them. I have not turned away My face from...
