Two Easter Miracles

May 6, 2020

On April 27, I read the following headline: “On April 15 the Tolling of Emmanuel Filled the Skies of Paris”. Emmanuel is a bell. In fact, this bell is the only one that survived the French Revolution of 1789 and to this day remains a symbol of Paris. Emmanuel rang-in a very special event in France! On this occasion she reminded the world of the first anniversary of the fire that destroyed most of Notre Dame Cathedral, stupefying France and the world. It was April 15 2019, at 6.50 p.m., when the fire began its devastation of the magnificent gothic building. The church was consecrated on May 19th, 1182 and since then it had become not only a symbol of Paris and the French nation, but an edifice cherished by believers and non-believers alike throughout the world. On April 27 Emmanuel heralded to Parisians and to the world that the work of the Cathedral’s restoration would pick up again after it was halted due to the Coronavirus last March 16th. But it was not just this news that gave new hope to the world, for on April 10th, Good Friday, the Archbishop of Paris commemorated the Lord’s Passion inside the wounded and empty cathedral, at the feet of the large golden Crucifix that had remained untouched by the fire. The event brought to my mind the motto of the Carthusian Order of monks which dates back to the year 1000: “Stat crux dum volvitur orbis – The Cross Stands Still While the World Turns”. I then recalled the Crucifix of Church of San Marcello in Rome which was miraculously spared from the fire that ravaged the church on the night of May 22-23, 1519. This same Crucifix saved Rome from the plague during the Summer 1522. Pope Francis prayed before…

EXALTATION OF THE CROSS

September 14, 2020

September 14th, EXALTATION OF THE CROSS This feast proclaims the triumph of Jesus on the cross. What was the nature of that triumph? It was firstly the triumph of life over death. Those who put Jesus to death did not have the final say, because God the Father raised him high, in the words of Saint Paul in today’s first reading. It was also the triumph of love over hatred. Human hatred for Jesus did not have the last word, because in and through Jesus crucified, the love of God for humanity was shining brightly. When contemplating Jesus on the cross, we ought not to look at those paintings that are far too beautiful and do not represent the harsh reality of the harrowing ordeal. “It seems that the protagonist of today’s readings is the serpent, and there is a message here”. Yes, “there is a profound prophecy in this presentation of the serpent”, which, was the first animal to be presented to man, the first that the Bible mentions” and defines as the smartest of the wild animals God created. The serpent’s figure is not beautiful, it always provokes fear. Even if “the snake’s skin is beautiful, the fact remains that the snake’s behaviour is scary. The Book of Genesis “describes the serpent as ‘the most cunning’”, but also that “he is a enchanter that has the ability to fascinate, to charm you”. Moreover, “he is a liar, he is jealous; it is because of the devil’s envy — the serpent’s envy — that sin entered the world”. He has “this ability to ruin us with seduction: he promises you many things, but when the time comes to pay you he pays badly, he is an evil payer”. However, the serpent “has this ability to seduce and to charm”.…

The Prayer of the Church

March 28, 2020 | Comments Off on The Prayer of the Church

Those of you whom have been participating in our retreats over the past few years know that we have incorporated the Liturgy of the Hours into specific prayer times. A few people have expressed surprise when I said that ‘after the Mass, the Liturgy of the Hours is the most important public prayer of the Church.’ Note the word public. In Church life and lingo, something is public when it is done in the name of and on behalf of the Church. It makes no difference if you pray the LOH alone, as your parish priest mostly does, or with…
