Jesus, our great high priest, bridges the gap between Heaven and earth through his divinity and humanity. As the Son of God he has the power to make a sacrifice for the salvation of the world; as the Son of Mary he meets us in our human weakness and struggle. May we turn to our Savior for the strength we need!

Palm Sunday: The Passion of Jesus. Catholic Inspiration

Every year on Palm Sunday we hear the Passion of the Lord. Why? Because we need to be reminded of God’s remedy for our sins, so that we may stand at the foot of the Cross of Christ and repent…so as to receive his great gift of mercy.

Ezekiel’s great prophecy of hope is made possible through the words of the high priest Caiaphas – who reminds us that “it is better that one man should die instead of the people.” As we enter into Holy Week may we cherish the Lord’s sacrifice for our salvation!

Daily Mass: The sacrifice of John the Baptist. Catholic Inspiration

The death of John the Baptist assaults our senses for its cruelty, pettiness and injustice. As John precedes the Lord in life, so also he precedes him in death…reminding us that the offering of our lives will include profound sacrifice.
