+  Ukraine Crisis: Militants, army face off in east amid soaring tensions

+  Go Forth with Hearts on Fire

  • Description: Love Courageously. Evangelization is sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the world. It is the fundamental mission of the Church. It begins with each of us realizing we have been courageously loved by God; we are called to return this gift of love and share the Good News with the world. Finding ways to love God and our neighbor in a radical and sacrificial way requires great courage, especially in today’s culture. But to love courageously is the most effective way we have to share the Gospel and ultimately leads us to our deepest happiness. This explains the Pastoral Letter recently published by Bishop Paul Loverde of the Diocese of Arlington, VA. We talk to him about the New Evangelization.

+  The 7 Last Words of Jesus

  • Description: The Seven “Last Words” of Jesus from the cross are actually 7 short phrases that Jesus uttered on Calvary that serve as an excellent holy week meditation. To find all of the seven last words of Jesus Christ, one must read all the gospels since none of the evangelists records all 7 last words. The sayings would have been originally uttered by Jesus in the Aramaic language, but only one of the last seven words of Jesus is preserved for us in the original Aramaic, namely "Eli, Eli, lama sabacthani" or "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me," which is a direct quote of the opening verse of Psalm 22. The rest of the seven last words of Jesus are found in the gospels after having been translated into Greek by the four Evangelists. With the Triduum upon us we talk to Msgr. James Shea about the Last Words.
