The Resurrection of Jesus

The Resurrection of Jesus After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, approached, rolled back the stone, and sat upon it. His appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow. The guards were shaken with fear of him and became like dead men. Then the angel said to the women in reply, “Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified. He is…

The Betrayer

When it was evening, he reclined at table with the Twelve. And while they were eating, he said, “Amen, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” Deeply distressed at this, they began to say to him one after another, “Surely it is not I, Lord?” He said in reply, “He who has dipped his hand into the dish with me is the one who will betray me. The Son of Man indeed goes, as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. It would be better for…

I Stand For Free Speech, I Stand With Milo Yiannopoulos

I sat in horror as I watched, via live video stream, the riots at UC Berkeley. It was so surreal. These Marxists seemed to morph into creepy, hateful, minions. They would creep, one at a time towards the building, drop something flammable and then run back to the crowd. Creep up to the building, knock something over and run back to the pack. Once the fires started, they all seemed to rush the building and started breaking everything in sight. I’m not surprised at the escalation. This sort of violence happened during the election to Trump supporters and has been…

I Have Declared Love on the World

Today throughout the world people are being persecuted for their faith. In America, religious freedom is on trial. Anti-Christian groups dominate the social media and if a Christian stands up for his faith, he is threatened with loss of income or even death. Mainstream media promotes, perpetuates and escalates the hate, as if to add gasoline to fire, just for higher ratings. I remember a story about St. John Paul II and I’m really not sure if this is true or not, but it was the inspiration for this collection of memes. One day during the Nazi occupation of Poland,…

The Easily Swayed

As I write this post, it is 11:30 am on Good Friday. The noon hour marks the hour at which our Lord was nailed to the cross. I can’t stop thinking about Palm Sunday and the time Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt. A week before, …the whole multitude of his disciples began to praise God aloud with joy for all the mighty deeds they had seen. They proclaimed: ‘Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord. Peace in heaven And glory in the highest.’ – Luke 19:37-38 A week later, my Lord is hanging on…
