Today is the day the Church marks the institution of the Holy Eucharist… Holy Thursday! This is one of my most favorite days on the Church’s calendar… because as Vatican II stated… the Eucharist is the “source and summit” of the Christian life! So I want to share with you some audio and written resources that [...]
Well IF (noticed I tried to use a big IF) that’s true, then it would seem to me that St. Paul must have missed a whole bunch of memos from the home office. I mean if I were St. Paul, and I was the “consumate Protestant”, rejecting the Catholic Church, holding up doctrines such as “the bible alone”, “faith alone” , “once saved always saved”, “there is no purgatory”, “the Eucharist is only a symbol”, “pastors are free to marry” and so many others… then I would have NEVER written verses that seemed to suggest anything to the contrary of my beliefs.
Something for you ponder today… Matthew 12:42 (RSVCE) 42 The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. Song of Solomon 3:7–11 (RSVCE) 7 Behold, [...]
If you have followed my work for any amount of time you know that I absolutely LOVE typology in Scripture. I wish I was smarter because I would love to write a book on my favorite types in Salvation History. The CCC, in paragraph 128, states “The Church, as early as apostolic times, and then constantly in [...]
The Gospel reading at Mass this morning is taken from John 12:24-26: Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, [...]
This week on Behold The Man I will tell you the story of when I beat and mocked our Lord. When I scourged him, crowned him the thorns and nailed him to the tree! I am the one who sent him to the grave but it was God wh orasied him to forgive even me… a sinner!
Today on “Behold The Man”, “My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me”… words of our Lord from the cross that has always bothered me. Was he in utter despair? Or was he at his strongest? It was Todah… Eucharist!
Today on “Behold The Man”, we ask the question; did Jesus come to do something completely new? Or, did was His plan constant from the beginning? I argue that his plan for Salvation has been the same from the beginning and he has perfected the old in the new… thereby making all things new. We will look at the structure, worship, and fulfillment of the old into the new.
Today on “Behold the Man”, we look at Genesis 26, 27, and part of 28 in our study of “A Father Who keeps His promises” by Dr. Scott Hahn. Rebecca, knowing the Isaac was about to bestow the blessing of the first born to Easu, intercedes, and sends Jacob in to Jacob Easu & Isaac. The plan is hatched,,, carried out,,, and the blessing goes forth! The parallels to the passover, and Easter/Eucharist are amazing.
Today on “Behold The Man”, we talk about the Gospel reading from the 4th week of Lent… Luke 15:11-32, the “Prodigal Son”. This is on of the most beautiful passages of Scripture as it depicts the endless mercy of the Father for His children. Aren’t we all in need of rescuing… of mercy… of forgiveness? [...]
