Friends of the Rosary: Through the Incarnation, we become adopted sons of God. Through Baptism, we become members of Christ's body, His Catholic Church. And through the Sacrament of Confirmation, we are made active members of the Church. The Holy Spirit comes to us with his gifts and graces to enable us to work for the whole body of Christ, as we pray in the first Luminous mystery today. We are made true soldiers of Christ in order to save our own souls and help our all men to fight against sin and Godlessness. Advent prepares us for the coming of the Son of God to dwell as a man among us. Lent prepares us for the sufferings endured by Christ during Holy Week on our behalf. Easter is the feast of Christ's triumph over death and the certainty of our triumph and union with Christ in his eternal glory. And Pentecost crowns Christ's work among us. Ave Maria!Jesus, I Trust In You! To Jesus through Mary! + Mikel A. | RosaryNetwork.com, New York • July 20, 2023, Today's Rosary on YouTube | Daily broadcast at 7:30 pm ET

Alastair, a biblical theologian and Susannah's husband, examines the story of Mary of Bethany's anointing of Jesus' feet before Holy Week as a powerful image of what our relationship with money in the Kingdom ought to be. It's not that prudence and careful management are bad things. They are very good. But overflowing generosity, the Christian version of the Classical virtue of magnificence, is the most proper response to Christ's own overflowing generosity. They then discuss the life of the late Tim Keller as an example of this generous investment of time, talent and treasure in the kingdom.

“Jesus wants me to tell you again, especially in this Holy Week, how much is the love He has for each one of you – beyond all you can imagine. I worry some of you still have not really met Jesus – one to one – you and Jesus alone. We may spend time in chapel – but have you seen with eyes of your soul how He looks at you with love? Do you really know the living Jesus – not from books but from being with Him in your heart? Have you heard the loving words He speaks to you? Ask for the grace, He is longing simply to give it. Until you can hear Jesus in the silence of your own heart, you will not be able to hear Him saying ‘I Thirst' in the hearts of the poor. Never give up this intimate contact with Jesus as a real living person – not just an idea. How can we last even one day living our life without hearing Jesus say ‘I love you' – impossible. Our soul needs that as much as the body needs to breathe the air. If not, prayer is dead – meditation only thinking.” --Mother Teresa, "Varanasi Letter" --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/hucklefather/support

Sacred Heart of Jesus Friday following the Second Sunday after Pentecost Solemnity; Liturgical Color: White Behold the heart which drips red for love of man It's always the tissue of male heart muscle when the molecular structure of a Eucharistic miracle is examined under a microscope. Jesus had “heart” but, more importantly, He had a heart. The word “heart” is synonymous with grit, soul, intuition, love, strength, generosity, and, in its most total sense, the very center of man. Today's feast embraces all of those meanings. Christ's Sacred Heart teaches us that God loves us as a friend loves a friend, as a parent loves a child, or as a sibling loves his closest brother or sister. That is, Christ loves us in the same way as a person loves us, only more intensely. Our God doesn't shift the planetary order, redirect the rays of the sun, or create a parallel gravitational field to magnetize His love for mankind. Science fiction requires a fluid imagination. Understanding God's love should not, and does not, demand such mental contortionism. Understanding God's love should be as simple as recalling your little hand in your father's big hand as you walked next to him at night as a little girl. It requires remembering running into your mother's soft embrace, cheek to cheek, after skinning your knee. Jesus Christ's love for man is as human and as clear as a beating heart. Simply put, Jesus loves us from just above His solar plexus, where His heart pulsates with emotion for every sacred creature who harbors a human soul. The widely loved devotion to the Sacred Heart is not rooted in a feast of ancient pedigree similar to those of Holy Week. No Christian of the first millenium ever gazed into the haunting eyes of Christ as He stared out from a Sacred Heart image enthroned on the family-room wall. It was only in 1856 that Pope Pius IX placed this feast on the Church's universal calendar. The Pope acted after almost two centuries of devotion to the Sacred Heart, which had grown out of the thinking, preaching, and prayer of the indefatigable Saint John Eudes and out of the visions of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque. Both of these saints were indebted, in turn, to the medieval revelations of the Sacred Heart granted to Saint Gertrude the Great. We love the Heart of Christ because His heart loved us first. We adore the adorer, love the lover, and worship the worshiper. Because God comes first, all of our love for Him is the repayment of a debt. We are not doing God a favor by loving him any more than a hammer does a carpenter a favor by slamming nails into wood. Religion is about raw justice, not doing God favors. That God loves us is not readily apparent from creation itself or from the history of mankind. The gods were many things to many races throughout the ages, but love was not one of them. Christianity had to tell the world that God was love. And Jesus had to attach His arms to a cross and die for that message to be convincing. The visions of Saint Margaret Mary made God's love concrete and comprehensible, while the visions of Saint Faustina Kowolska deepened the meaning of this feast still more. In these challenging visions, Christ rips open His heart to Sister Faustina and shows her a calm and deep ocean of mercy waiting to bathe repentant sinners in its saving waters. Three strands—the Sacred Heart, love, and mercy—are now braided in a tight belt of spiritual truth. True heart is not proven by waving to the crowds from a car in a victory parade or by luxuriating on the beach with friends. Real heart is in the last stretch of the neck over the finish line, in climbing the stage to receive a diploma after years of academic struggle, or in pulling yourself out of bed to go to nocturnal adoration. True heart is synonymous with long suffering, perseverance, and conquering through adversity. True heart is dying on the cross when you didn't deserve it. A true heart is a Sacred Heart. That's the heart of our God. No athlete goes to the Olympics to compete for the silver. Jesus reached for the gold from the dais of the cross, slick with his own blood. There's no need for us to keep on searching for a heart of gold in this world. We know in exactly whose body that heart beats. It's all gold, it's all sacredness, and it loves us like Himself. Sacred Heart of Jesus, You told us to ask and we shall receive, to seek and we shall find, to knock and the door shall be opened. Today, we ask, we seek, and we knock, in the sure and certain hope that you will hear us and answer us.

Jesus began to speak to the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders in parables. “A man planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a wine press, and built a tower. Then he leased it to tenant farmers and left on a journey. At the proper time he sent a servant to the tenants to obtain from them some of the produce of the vineyard. But they seized him, beat him, and sent him away empty-handed.” Mark 12:1–3This was the first of “many” servants the owner of the vineyard sent to the tenants to obtain some of the produce of the vineyard. Some of the servants were mistreated, some beaten and others were killed. In the end, the owner sent his son. The tenants killed him, thinking that they would inherit the vineyard if the son were dead.The context of this parable is important. Jesus had just entered Jerusalem for the beginning of the first Holy Week, which would ultimately end with His death and resurrection. The day before, Jesus had cleansed the Temple of the money changers. The chief priests, scribes and elders were outraged and began to plot His death. Jesus especially addressed this parable to them.To understand this parable, you need to understand who represents whom. The religious leaders of Israel were the tenants, the vineyard was the Jewish nation, God the Father was the man who planted the vineyard, the many servants sent to gather the produce were the prophets of old, and Jesus was the Beloved Son Who was killed. The parable concludes by saying that the owner of the vineyard (God the Father) will put the tenants to death and give the vineyard to others. In other words, the scribes, Pharisees, chief priests and elders would soon have their religious authority taken away from them, and it would be given to the Apostles and their successors. This parable, therefore, presents us with a summary of the way the Church was formed. It's helpful to note that the religious leaders of the time knew that Jesus addressed this parable to them, but they failed to heed the lesson. Ideally, if they were open to the gift of faith, they would have realized that they were attempting to steal the “vineyard” from God. They were attempting to control and manipulate the Kingdom of Israel, to make it into their own image, and to disregard the will of God Who established it. This parable is especially important for anyone who exercises some form of holy authority. Parents exercise authority within the home. Bishops and priests exercise authority within the Church. And we all exercise a certain spiritual authority when we seek to fulfill our unique mission in life. The lesson from this parable is simple: don't abuse your authority. Don't exercise authority according to your own will; exercise it with humility only in accord with God's will. Every leader, always and everywhere, must lead according to the mind and will of God. If they fail, they will suffer the consequences. Reflect, today, upon any way that God has entrusted you with a spiritual duty to fulfill His mission in this world. When a duty of leadership is entrusted to a person, the leader is also entrusted with the spiritual authority to fulfill that duty in accord with the mind and will of God. This requires constant humility so that it is only God's will that is fulfilled. Seek to exercise all authority in accord with the mind and will of God, and the vineyard entrusted to your care will bear an abundance of good fruit. Loving Father, You have chosen to send me, as a tenant of Your Kingdom, to bear good fruit for eternal life. Please help me to always exercise the authority and duty entrusted to me with humility so that I will seek to fulfill Your will and Your will alone. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.
If the cross is where the Kingdom begins, what does that tell us about the enthronement of Jesus? We are invited to reflect and remember the significance and meaning in the events of Holy Week. Continuing in our Covered in the Dust series, Pr Jess helps us see the crucifixion as the enthronement of our King and to hear His Kingdom edicts of forgiveness and restoration.
There are so many miracles attributed to Mother Mary, more than anyone could possibly count! She continues to manifest on the planet over and over again, and miracles are magnified in astounding ways. Physical healings, such as eyesight being restored, or paralysis being reversed, are common. Could there be a miracle even greater? In this encore episode, I will share the story of the very end of Mother Mary's life in Ephesus, Turkey, as revealed by the visionary Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, and how the greatest miracle of all was revealed in Her final days. I will also share why connecting with Mother Mary in August is extremely beneficial, especially for overcoming obstacles. Key Learnings: We honor and celebrate the end of Mother Mary's life, known as Her Dormition, on the 13th of August, and Her Assumption on the 15th. These three days echo the energy of Holy Week, except without the pain and suffering. Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene and St. John did not die horrible deaths as the other disciples did. What do they all have in common? Each one of them experienced the love of Christ in their own way, and it is that love that made the difference. If you have a persistent problem, one that you would love to overcome, offer it to Mother Mary before or on Aug 13th and She will add Her miraculous energy to help you with your own “overcoming.” “Mother Mary continues to give us the message that love is the answer to everything.” Rev.

Holy Week: The story of a revolution undone. The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, is often recounted as a conclusion to a powerful era of civil rights in America, but how did this hero's murder come to be the stitching used to tie together a narrative of victory? The week that followed his killing was one of the most fiery, disruptive, and revolutionary, and is nearly forgotten. Over the course of eight episodes, Holy Week brings forward the stories of the activists who turned heartbreak into action, families scorched by chaos, and politicians who worked to contain the grief. Seven days diverted the course of a social revolution and set the stage for modern clashes over voting rights, redlining, critical race theory, and the role of racial unrest in today's post–George Floyd reckoning.

A deadly encounter fifty years ago between the New Jersey State Police and a group of Black activists turned Assata Shakur into a cultural icon – and an enduring political villain. In May 1973, activist Assata Shakur and two members of the Black Liberation Army were pulled over by state troopers on the New Jersey Turnpike. Tragically, guns were fired, people were killed, and in the aftermath, a political standoff between Shakur and state law enforcement began. On the fiftieth anniversary marking the incident, WNYC reporters Nancy Solomon and Tracie Hunte share their reporting with host Kai Wright. They explore the many unanswered questions it raises and what this moment means in the history of Black self-defense movements.

It's Friday, April 28th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Russia "weaponizing religion" and persecuting churches in Ukraine A new report by the Institute for the Study of War claims that Russian forces are persecuting and repressing the church in areas under their control. The report states that “Russia continues to weaponize religion. … Since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Russian soldiers or occupation authorities, have reportedly committed at least 76 acts of religious persecution in Ukraine.” Russian forces have closed down or taken over 76 places of worship, looted, desecrated or destroyed 13, and have killed or seized 29 religious leaders in occupied Ukraine. Researchers describe the religious repression as “part of a deliberate campaign to systematically eradicate ‘undesirable religious organizations in Ukraine and promote the Patriarch of the Russian Church.” Walter Reed Hospital cancelled Catholic pastoral care Officials with Walter Reed National Military Medical Center have not explained their controversial decision to end a longstanding contract for Catholic pastoral care services at the beginning of Holy Week, reports Baptist News. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese for Military Services strongly criticized the nation's most well-known military hospital for issuing a “cease and desist order” to Holy Name College, a community of Franciscan Catholic priests and brothers who have provided pastoral care to Catholic service members and veterans at Walter Reed for two decades. Oddly enough, the U.S. military has awarded the new contract for Catholic pastoral care to a for-profit, secular company that the archdiocese believes cannot provide adequate care. Archbishop Timothy Broglio said the unnamed firm awarded the contract “is incapable of providing priestly care. It's like hiring a brain surgeon who didn't go to med school.” Whatever the origin and reasoning for the change — Walter Reed officials have been silent. Republican Congressmen put the blame on President Joe Biden who is, ironically, a Catholic. Was Tucker Carlson fired because he urged prayer for America? Despite the fact that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was the highest-rated show in all cable news with an average of 3.39 million viewers, Fox News fired him recently. Some have wondered whether it was, in any way, related to a powerful extemporaneous speech that he gave to the Heritage Foundation on Friday night, April 21st, shortly after his last show, reports The Washington Stand. The 28-minute speech, available on YouTube, has already been viewed by 3.9 million people. Carlson addressed the transgender movement. CARLSON: “If you have people who are saying, ‘I have an idea. Let's castrate the next generation. Let's sexually mutilate children.' I'm sorry. That's not a political debate. What? That has nothing to do with politics. What's the outcome we're desiring here? An androgynous population? Is that really … Are were arguing for that? I don't think anyone could defend that as a positive outcome. But the weight of the government, and a lot of corporate interests, are behind that. Well, what is that? Well, it's irrational.” He talked about the modern-day abortion movement. CARLSON: “If you're telling me that abortion is a positive good, what are you saying? Well, you're arguing for child sacrifice, obviously. But when the Treasury Secretary stands up and says, ‘You know what you can do to help the economy? Get an abortion!' That's like an Aztec principle actually.” “What's the point of child sacrifice? Well, there's no policy goal entwined with that. No, that's a theological phenomenon. And that's kind of the point I'm making. None of this makes sense in conventional political terms.” Carlson called out the motivating factor of today's federal government. CARLSON: “When the federal government decides that the goal is to destroy things -- destruction for its own sake. ‘Hey, let's tear it down,” what you're watching is not a political movement. It's evil!” The former Fox News Host concluded his speech by advocating for daily prayer for America. CARLSON: “Maybe we should all take just like 10 minutes a day to say a prayer about it. (applause) I'm serious, like, why not? And I'm saying that to you, not as some kind of evangelist. I'm literally saying that to you as an Episcopalian, the Samaritans of our time. I'm coming to you from the most humble and lowly theological position you can. And even I have concluded it might be worth taking just 10 minutes out of your busy schedule to say a prayer for the future. And I hope you will.” Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.” Ron Hamilton, known as “Patch the Pirate,” has died And finally, Ron Hamilton, best known as the character, “Patch the Pirate,” in the world of Christian music for children, died on April 19th. Incredibly prolific, he wrote and sang 900 songs as part of a series of character-building, comical, and musical recordings for children produced by Majesty Music. The “Patch the Pirate” albums have sold over two million copies, and the adventures are featured on over 600 Christian radio stations. To date, over a million streams of Patch are reported every month. To the glory of God, countless children have come to know Christ through “Patch the Pirate.” Listen to a portion of one song inspired by Isaiah 6:8. “Lord, I give my life to You. Take control each day. I will follow anywhere. Here or far away. (chorus with kids) “Here am I Lord, send me. Here am I Lord, send me. I will serve You faithfully. Here am I Lord, send me.” After graduating from Bob Jones University, an ophthalmologist discovered melanoma cancer in Ron Hamilton's left eye which required surgical removal. He opted to wear a leather eye patch permanently. This earned him the title “Patch the Pirate” from children everywhere. This seeming tragedy became the greatest ministry blessing of Ron and his wife Shelly's lives. Close And that's The Worldview on this Friday, April 28th in the year of our Lord 2023.

For this last, summary episode in the Angels series, I am offering the best concise 48-minute synopsis on angels and spiritual warfare I know of. Ha! The Bible shows us that the spiritual battle we are all engaged in is centered on fear versus faith. So please enjoy the first chapter of my book Fearless, without interruption. Technical note: the podcast hosting service I use has not been working for over a week; this is why you did not get this podcast last week. I couldn't get it fixed between Holy Week, Easter, and Monday when my silent retreat began. As a work-around (it's still not working), I added the audio through the native player on my site, so it looks different. I should have it fixed by the next series in a few weeks.

On today's Bible Answer Man broadcast (04/18/23), Hank concludes his overview of the days of Holy Week, arriving at Pascha—also known as Easter. It is the day in which the body of Christ worldwide celebrates the ultimate game-changer—the resurrection of Jesus Christ. “If I face hardships in life for merely human reasons,” wrote Paul in his first letter to the Corinthian Christians, “what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, ‘Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.' If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.” Without resurrection, Christianity crumbles. Thus, in 1 Corinthians chapter 15, the apostle Paul provides a four-part argument underscoring the irrevocable reality of Christ's resurrection. Of one thing Hank has become certain—if twenty-first-century Christians would grasp the reality of resurrection like first-century Christians did, their lives would be totally transformed.
On today's Bible Answer Man broadcast (04/17/23), Hank resumes his overview of the days of Holy Week, arriving at Holy Saturday, which was observed by the Eastern Church this past weekend. Holy Saturday marks one of the most enigmatic of all mysteries—the mystery of Christ's descent into Hades. Being “put to death in the body,” says Peter, he was “made alive by the spirit through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it, only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also.” Peter here reminds us of two great and glorious truths. First, that we are saved through water, and second that the descent of Christ into Hades inaugurates resplendent triumph. A triumph by which Christ “tramples down death by death.” Hank also answers the following questions: When a person is baptized, do they become a new creation right away, or is it an ongoing process? What provision does the Bible make for young children or some adults who don't have the mental capacity to accept Christ? I have a cross pendant that has discolored over time. I bought a replacement, but what should I do with the old one?
