From vague affirmations to formal exegetic absurdities: for Francis, Jesus was stained by sin

The Pope’s mission to teach the truth is inherent to his position as guide of the Church. All of the baptized turn to him for words of eternal life, which, we know God has willed, should come to us through Christ’s Vicar.Continue Reading

‘God judges us by loving us’ – Oh, really?

The Cross is the word through which God has responded to evil in the world.” With these words, Francis closed his first Way of the Cross in the Coliseum as Bishop of Rome, during a brief speech that foreshadowed his future preaching centered on pardon and mercy. The Pontiff explained, in an original manner, the meaning of the immolation of the Lamb of God, who had offered his life on the Cross to transmit a word of love, stronger than that of justice.Continue Reading

Jesus had to beg forgiveness of his parents for his ‘escapade’!!!

Every priest who loves the Word of God meditates on the Gospel to be proclaimed, and which he will subsequently explain to the faithful. Besides the knowledge gleaned through his personal study, the Holy Spirit normally inspires him with a deeper understanding regarding the happenings in the life of the Redeemer, illuminating him in relation to the message of salvation, read ‘between the lines’.Continue Reading

A re-reading of the Gospels: was it only mercy that moved Christ?

It is very pleasing, and above all, we feel love and admiration when, on going through the pages of the Gospel, we observe how Jesus ‘went about doing good’ (Acts 10: 38) – He cured all, pardoned sins, multiplied loaves, resurrected the dead, blessed children, etc. But, there is a truth that is often forgotten in our days, and even ends up being despised by those who would prefer to tear away the memory of it from their consciences: in the inseparable unity of merciful Jesus, there also exists justice, severity and integrity that does not tolerate the abominations or the errors of those who obstinately persist in sin. Both are the same Jesus…in both ways, Jesus is good, rather He is Goodness itself!Continue Reading

Jesus came into the world to learn how to be a man? Or to save men? More Christogical novelties…

After the disobedience of Adam and Eve in Paradise, only God himself could make reparation for the offense that was committed by man’s sin. He, indeed, wished to make this reparation by sending to the world His Only Begotten Son, who was made Man in the womb of Mary. The Incarnation of the Son of God is one of the greatest mysteries of our faith, mystery of divine wisdom that is concealed under the veil of humanity.Continue Reading

The anger of Jesus in the Gospels is only pretense? Elements for a new Christology

With the Incarnation of the Word and the Redemption of humanity, Our Lord Jesus Christ became the center of History, such that rendering him honor, serving him and propagating his name became the highest goal of all the baptized. These have never tired of increasing their knowledge of Christ in this life while awaiting the definitive encounter with Him in eternity.Continue Reading

At the center of our faith: Jesus Christ or the human person?

The Catholic faith we received on the day of our Baptism is centered on the person of Jesus Christ, only begotten Son of the Father, Lord of all creation, and Redeemer of humanity. Continue Reading
