Spy Wednesday

Today is called Spy Wednesday in the Church.  Today's liturgy celebrates this as the day Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty peices of silver.  I hear Bart Stupak has a party planned...

From Nazareth Priest: 
Dom Gueranger, the great Benedictine liturgical scholar, offers this hymn from the Greek liturgy that describes the whole incident and is a moving account of this horrible treachery. read the rest

  Acts of the Apostasy has some customs posted.
  FishEaters has even more

And Nunly has this to say:
I’m sad to say that with the sudden upsurge of Catholic bashing and attacks on our Pope in the the media, many of us are focusing on the wrong thing this Holy Week. I’m convinced that this is exactly the plan for those who are fueling these flames…and we all know that Satan is the one orchestrating this show. Don’t let him win. Spend as much time as you can in prayer and reflection, this is what our Holy Father would want us to do!
There is more coming.  First I must visit my favorite store (Costco) and pick up my taxes at the bookkeepers.  Lunch is sweet pork burritos on homemade tortillas at  Cafe Chulo.  Outstanding!

Some of those that beat our Divine Master came to repentance.

Pray the Lord turn their hearts.

“In today’s crisis of Church and world, our strength is in God alone, because humanly speaking we are powerless in the face of the trials confronting us. Our enemies are all-powerful, those inside the Church being much more dangerous than those outside. Just as the chief priests and ancients hated Jesus unto death, but they needed an Apostle to betray him, so we may blame Jews and Freemasons and others like them for engineering the destruction of the Church, but it has taken churchmen from within to do the actual betraying and destroying. Does Our Lord hate these traitors, as we can be sorely tempted to do? No, he seeks only their salvation, although their punishment will be horrible if they do not repent”.

Charity. Without it, we cannot enter Heaven.

Thanks, Auntie A. for your referral.
A blessed Triduum and Eastertide to you and yours.
I know you've had a lot of heartache this past year.
May Jesus, Crucified and Risen, give you every grace and blessing.
A remembrance in my Easter Masses.
Love you, dear!

You are so bad! Bart Stupak has a party took me a moment or so.


Adrienne said...

Nazareth Priest - Thank you so much for the kind thoughts. Compared to Our Lord and Savior, I've had a pretty easy time of it...

Adrienne said...

Pops - What the heck took you so long. But, you are right - I am bad to the bone!
