Hymn

1.
Light’s glittering morn bedecks the sky,
Heav’n thunders forth its victor cry:
The glad earth shouts her triumph high,
And groaning hell makes wild reply.

1/ So, for #EasterSunday we will look today, on #Archaeology_Online at some archaeological remains relating to the story of #JesusChrist. We will start the (LONG!) #thread at the site of Magdala on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee. >>
@nickfshort @nidgethompson
2/ >> The site of Magdala is the settlement of Migdal where Jesus lived according to the NT, & from which Mary Magdalene came (the name Magdelene comes from Magdala). It is also one of the settlements that rebelled against the Romans during the Great Revolt of 67-73 AD. >>
3/ >> In 2008, following a Vatican plan to build a hotel on the site, archeological salvage excavations began at the site. Remains of a settlement of people of high society, from the 1st century AD, were found. >>

2nd NOVEMBER: ALL SOULS' DAY (THE COMMEMORATION OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED)

2. death, which is not eternal.

As to the place, manner, or kind of these sufferings, nothing has been defined by the Church,it is interwoven with the fundamental articles of the Christian faith.

2. and ask pardon for their sins. They must not continue to offend Our Lord, Who is already deeply offended.’

The Holy Bible tells us that ‘He was wounded for our iniquities, He was bruised for our sins’ (Isaiah 53:3). St Alphonsus, Doctor of the Church, says that each one of

Jesus.. spoke again in parables,saying:

The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son. And he sent his servants, to call them that were invited to the marriage; and they would not come. (Mt22:1-14 #SundayMass #Oct11)~Douay Rheims #Bible #JesusChrist Image
2. But they neglected, and went their ways, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise.

Then [the king] saith to his servants: The marriage indeed is ready; but they that were invited are not worthy.

Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find...
3. call to the marriage.. and the marriage was filled with guests.. And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not a wedding garment. And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having on a wedding garment? But he was silent.(Mt22:1-14)

“THINK OFTEN OF HEAVEN”

Think often of Heaven, and of that eternal procession, in which the Lamb of God is attended by the angelic hosts, and by the elect, ransomed by his redeeming Blood. Strive to number and to recognise those friends of yours whom you hope to find
2. among this illustrious Family of the eldest-born of the Lord, and let your heart be lifted up with joy at the thought that you, too, will one day join in those blessed ranks.

Yes, live as much as possible in this delightful hope, which is as much a precept as a virtue.
3. True it is, indeed, we are not perfect; but the Gospel teaches us that the Lord summons to the feast, yea, urgently, even the poor, the infirm, the blind, the lame,

1. Praise to the Holiest in the height,
and in the depth be praise,
in all his words most wonderful,
most sure in all his ways.

2. O loving wisdom of our God!
When all was sin and shame,
a second Adam to the fight,
and to the rescue came.
(#StJohnHenryNewman)
3. O wisest love! That flesh and blood
which did in Adam fail,
should strive afresh against the foe,
should strive and should prevail;

4. And that a higher gift than grace
should flesh and blood refine,
God’s presence and his very self,
and Essence all divine.
5. O generous love! That he who smote
in man for man the foe,
the double agony in man
for man should undergo,

6. And in the garden secretly
and on the Cross on high,
should teach his brethren, and inspire
to suffer and to die.

The two last chapters of this great book.
This is our birthright, that we are the conqueror of every challenge, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, with this mission, to fulfill God's calling. Every person in His Kingdom,
after he/she was born again, received callings from God,
according to the Scripture and their's specific calling. Just like Apostle Paul, had been called to be the apostle for the gentiles as his' specific calling. He obeyed it and faithful to it until his last breath.

For let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men, and in habit found as a ma. (Php2:6-11 #HolyMass)DR #Bible
2. He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even to the death of the cross.

For which cause God also hath exalted him and hath given him a name which is above all names:

That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are I heaven, on earth, (Php2:6-11)
3. and under the earth:

And that every tongue should confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father. (Php2:6-11 #HolyMass #Sep14 #ExaltationoftheCross) ~ DouayRheims #Bible

The spirit of the cross, or of Christ crucified, is the spirit of that perfect humility, meekness, charity, patience, and all other virtues, which he preaches to us by his cross. So long as self-love, pride, sensuality, or impatience

IN THE CROSS IS SALVATION

~thread~
1. To many the saying, ‘Deny thyself, take up thy cross and follow Me’ (Mt 16:24; Lk 9:23) seems hard, but it will be much harder to hear that final word: ‘Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire’ (Mt 25:41).

2. Those who hear the word of the cross and follow it willingly now, need not fear that they will hear of eternal damnation on the Day of Judgement. This sign of the cross will be in the heavens when the Lord comes to judge. #TakeUpThyCross #FollowMe #4LastThings #Judgement
