2005- John Paul II, history’s most well-traveled pope and the first non-Italian to hold the position since the 16th century, dies at his home in the Vatican. Six days later, two million people packed Vatican City for his funeral, said to be one of the biggest in history.

The sufferings of Jesus were many, and whenever we listen to the account of the Passion, they pierce our hearts. There were sufferings of the body: we think of the slaps and beatings, flogging and the crowning with thorns, and in the end, the cruelty of the crucifixion. There were also sufferings of the soul: the betrayal of Judas, the denials of Peter, the condemnation of the religious and civil authorities, the mockery of the guards, the jeering at the foot of the cross, the rejection of the crowd, utter failure and the flight of the disciples.

Yet, amid all these sorrows, Jesus remained certain of one thing: the closeness of the Father. Now, however, the unthinkable has taken place. Before dying, he cries out: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Jesus’ abandonment.

Here’s What Happen  Last Week and Year in Life

On a warm, golden day in early August, I sat by the lake in the area of Park Corner on Prince Edward Island, where Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the beloved 1908 children’s novel Anne of Green Gables, spent her childhood summers. Sunlight glittered on the water; a soft breeze played among the reeds and feathery grasses. The view from my picnic blanket inspired stories and settings that have enraptured readers worldwide for more than a century. Montgomery’s tale of the imaginative orphan Anne Shirley captured the minds of so many people that she and her red-headed heroine quickly became global literary sensations.

Today, of course, Montgomery’s name is nearly inseparable from Anne of Green Gables, and many fans think of her and Anne as the same person. But by the author’s own account, readers have been wrong for more than a century.

  • Deacon Alan@deaconalanhaley (April 4, 2023) Had a dream in which I had to offer Mass (not a Communion service, actual Mass) because a priest wasn’t available. Instead of bringing me the Missal, the servers brought the Dungeons and Dragons handbooks (3.5 edition, to be exact). Never did find the Missal.

THE ANNUNCIATION OF THE LORD

The Adaugoijele ✝️@JustAdaugoijele (April 8, 2023) On Holy Saturday, the Church honours Christ in the tomb. Everything is silent: the Mass is not celebrated, and the church is empty. There is an air of expectation. We celebrated Good Friday, and now it is Holy Saturday, and the next day is the third he rose again from the dead.

Pope Francis@Pontifex (April 9, 2023)  Jesus, the Living One, is with us, forever. Let the Church and the world rejoice, for today our hopes no longer. May we allow ourselves to experience amazement at the joyful proclamation of Easter, at the light that illumines the darkness and the gloom in which, all too often, our world finds itself enveloped.Let us make haste to surmount our conflicts and divisions, and to open our hearts to those in greatest need. Let us hasten to pursue paths of peace and fraternity.
