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…

Sembra Venerdi’ Santo

April 9, 2020

The beginning of this Holy Week 2020 has been – weather-wise and other wise – somewhat ‘gloomy’ shall we say? When the clouds are dark and low and the rain is steady, Italians will say “sembra venerdi’ santo”: It looks like Good Friday. Interesting how a faith system will inform even a language. The Lord Himself said that the mouth speaks from the fullness of the heart. What is in our heart full of these days and what, or how, are we expressing what lies therein? For the Christian – and particularly the Catholic, I would say, – Good Friday is a time to mourn, there is no mitigation or getting around this deep spiritual reality. You may recall the prophecy of Zechariah (12:10): “And they shall look on him whom upon they have thrust through, and they shall mourn for him as one mourns for for an only son, and they shall grieve over him as one grieves over a firstborn.” The prophecy is fulfilled at the Crucifixion of Jesus and the words of Zechariah are recalled in Gospel of John (19:37). The same prophetic words are referenced later in the Book of Revelations. Jesus criticized the Pharisees for their bad timing and misguided intentions (Lk 5:35): “But the days will come, and when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, then they will fast in those days.” In this case fasting is an expression of mourning. Can we not say that the Bridegroom has been taken away from us? I believe so in a certain sense. This happens liturgically and symbolically during the Triduum and He has also been taken away physically during this time of imposed social distancing with public liturgies being denied us. Even with all this we must not lose faith that He is…

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…
