Theology of the Body: A Gift of Mercy to a Desperate Culture   Beautiful Mercy (Week 2 of 5) Take up a study of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and you will discover that behind all the sexual pain and confusion in the world and in our own hearts is the human thirst for heaven gone awry.

Life of Christ (Week 26 of 27) After the Ascension these scars would become as oratorical mouths of intercession before the Heavenly Father; scars that He would bear on the last day to judge the living and the dead. In an old legend it is said that Satan appeared to a saint and said: “I am the Christ”; the saint confounded him by asking: “Where are the marks of nails?” – Life of Christ... Read More

Life of Christ (Week 24 of 27) As the physical Body of Christ had external wounds, bruises, and scars, and yet the inner structure was left untouched, so there seemed to be a foretelling that though His Mystical Body, the Church, would have its moral wounds and scars of scandals and disloyalties, nevertheless, not a bone of its body would ever be broken. — (Life of Christ, Chapter 52, Paragraph... Read More

Life of Christ (Week 20 of 27) Looking beyond all secondary causes, such as Pilate and Annas, the Romans and the Jews, Our Lord saw not enemies to be defeated by a sword, but a cup offered by His Father.
