    Holy Week 2017 began with terrorist attacks on two Coptic Christian churches in Egypt, and included a Good Friday bombing by the U.S. in Afghanistan using the world's most powerful non-nuclear device. In that context, Pope Francis on Good Friday expressed "shame" before Christ for all the innocent blood shed in today's world, and prayed that God will comfort all those "struck down" by violence, indifference and war. Share: ROME- Against the backdrop of mounting global terrorism and war, including the bombing of two Coptic churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday, and with the U.S. on Friday dropping the world’s most...

    It is no surprise to learn that, as land values continue to rise, space for cemeteries gets scarce. I have seen more and more mausoleums be built at the local cemeteries, and they are getting taller as the years go on. But the picture to the right really takes the concept to new heights! The picture is The Memorial Necrópole Ecumênica III, a vertical cemetery in Santos, Brazil. It is the world’s tallest cemetery, with burial spaces on 32 floors. There’s also a restaurant, chapel, lagoon and peacock garden. It has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in...

    DALLAS (AP) -- Some find Jackson Potts II's photograph of a nightstick-wielding policeman beating a fallen, bleeding child violent and offensive, conjuring images of police brutality and child abuse. But to Jackson, a talented 10-year-old Houston photographer, and a cadre of art lovers, the disturbing image has religious symbolism. Jackson shot the photograph for an exhibit depicting the Stations of the Cross, but the show's organizers rejected it, sparking a controversy some say is overshadowing remembrance of Jesus' final hours during the season of Lent. Jackson was the only child among 15 artists invited to participate in the exhibit.

    Station I           Jesus is Condemned to Death Kneel Presider:   We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you. All:   Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world. Arise     Presider:   Leaving the house of Caiaphas where he had been blasphemed, and the house of Herod where he had been mocked, Jesus is dragged before Pilate, his back torn with scourges, his head crowned with thorns; and he who on the last day will judge the living and the dead, is himself condemned to a shameful death.    ...

    ROME, April 13, 2006 ( – In his meditations for this year’s Stations of the Cross, the annual commemoration of the biblical events of Christ on the way to be crucified, Archbishop Angelo Comastri, the Pope’s Vicar General, asked, “What is it that today, in particular, strikes at Christ’s holy body?” Comastri wrote for the stations this Good Friday and posted already to the Vatican’s website, “There is a move to reinvent mankind, to modify the very grammar of life as planned and willed by God.” Comastri’s meditations are in line with a stream of thought of Pope Benedict who...

    Far too large and graphic intensive to post, here are some excerpts. Click on the link below to move to the Stations of the Cross, according to the Shroud of Turin. What better way to comprehend the true reality of the Passion of Christ than to compare the traditional Stations of the Cross — handed down to us by St. Francis and the Franciscans — than by comparing them with the scientific and medical Truths found in more than 600,000 hours of peer-reviewed research surrounding the Shroud of Turin. For it is the very burial cloth of Jesus, proven not...

    Mel Gibson has been asked by Australia's Archbishop George Pell to recreate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ in the streets of Sydney during Pope Benedict XVI's visit there in 2008 - should the city be selected to host World Youth Day. According to documents obtained by the Sydney Morning Herald, the crucifixion reenactment - similar to scenes from Gibson's hugely successful film "The Passion of the Christ" - would begin with the Last Supper staged at Sydney's landmark Opera House at sunset, and would end with the crucifixion of Christ at St. Mary's Cathedral. Gibson's participation would be an incentive...
