"Lie down and sleep in peace in the calm grave for a little while, dear Lord, and then wake up for an everlasting reign. We, like the faithful women, will watch around you, for all our treasure, all our life, is lodged with you." Cardinal Newman
"When we walk without the Cross, when we build without the Cross, and when we confess a Christ without a Cross, we are no longer disciples of the Lord. We are mundane. We are bishops, priests, cardinals, Popes, everyone, but we are no longer disciples of the Lord" Pope Francis
Priestly Life In Christ 'It is a life profoundly marked by this service: by care for the flock, by faithful celebration of the liturgy, and by ready concern for all brothers and sisters, especially for the poorest and most needy. In practising this "pastoral charity" modelled on Christ and with Christ, wherever the Lord may call you, every priest can completely fulfil himself and his vocation.' Benedict XVI Pope Emeritus
When the evening came he was at table with the twelve disciples. And while they were eating he said, 'I tell you solemnly, one of you is about to betray me.' They were greatly distressed and started asking him in turn, 'Not I, Lord, surely?' (Matthew 26:21)
Out of love for us you have given us holidays to be glad in and festivals for rejoicing: especially this feast of Unleavened Bread, the time of our freedom, the time for us to meet together to celebrate our liberation from Egypt. Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation, for keeping us alive and letting us come here to take part in this feast. (From the Passover meal)
The Lord has given me a disciple's tongue. So that I may know how to reply to the wearied he provides me with speech. Each morning he wakes me to hear, to listen like a disciple. The Lord has opened my ear. (Isaiah 50:4-5)
The entry into Jerusalem... is the beginning of the most important week in human history, when Jesus died and rose again, when we were offered eternal safety and protection in the Spirit of the risen Jesus.
What do you think? Will he come to the festival or not? (John 11:56)
