HEY DID NOT BREAK HIS LEGS

"And so the soldiers came and broke the legs both of the one and of the other that were crucified with him; but when they came to Jesus, and found him already dead, they did not break his legs, but one of the soldiers opened his side with spear; and immediately blood and water flowed out."
(John 19:32,33&34)

'This was so ordained to fulfil what is written, You shall not break a single bone of his.' (John 19:36) Since the Jews would not let the bodies remain crucified on the Sabbath, they were to ensure the death of those hanged on the crosses. Therefore, they broke the legs of both the thieves hanged on either side of Jesus Christ. Since Jesus was found dead they did not break His legs but they opened His side with a spear.

Since everything that happened during the supreme sacrifice was with pin point accuracy as desired by the Holy Father, this too was His desire that not a bone of the Lord was to be broken. Psalm 34:21 says: "Under the Lord's keeping, every bone of his is safe; not one of them shall suffer harm." Exodus 12:46 says: " ... you must not take any of the victim's flesh elsewhere, or break it up into joints." Hence all that was happened according to the will of the Supreme One they could not break His legs and harm His bone. Another verse of the gospel says: 'They will look upon the man whom they have pierced.' (John 19:37) This too was not, therefore, a casual act but was predetermined to make the sacrifice a total and a complete one.

A sacrifice that was totally accepted by the Holy God, makes our saving confirmed.

MESSAGGIO DI P. PIO

PER IL 25 SETTEMBRE

Piacesse a Dio che si ravvedessero queste povere creature e ritornassero davvero a lui! Per queste persone bisogna essere tutte viscere di madre e per queste bisogna avere somma cura, poiché Gesù ci fa sapere che in cielo si fa più festa per un peccatore pentito, che per la perseveranza di novantanove giusti. E’ veramente confortante questa sentenza del Redentore per tante anime che disgraziatamente peccarono e poi vogliono ravvedersi e tornare a Gesù (Epist. III, p. 1082).

September 25, 2017 Gospel reading and reflection of the saint read and share...

First Reading Ezra 1:1-6

In the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia,
in order to fulfill the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah,
the LORD inspired King Cyrus of Persia
to issue this proclamation throughout his kingdom,
both by word of mouth and in writing:
"Thus says Cyrus, king of Persia:
'All the kingdoms of the earth
the LORD, the God of heaven, has given to me,
and he has also charged me to build him a house in Jerusalem,
which is in Judah.
Therefore, whoever among you belongs to any part of his people,
let him go up, and may his God be with him!
Let everyone who has survived, in whatever place he may have dwelt,
be assisted by the people of that place
with silver, gold, goods, and cattle,
together with free-will offerings
for the house of God in Jerusalem.'"

Then the family heads of Judah and Benjamin
and the priests and Levites–
everyone, that is, whom God had inspired to do so– 
prepared to go up to build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem.
All their neighbors gave them help in every way,
with silver, gold, goods, and cattle,
and with many precious gifts
besides all their free-will offerings.

Gospel reading Luke 8:16-18

Jesus said to the crowd:
"No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel
or sets it under a bed;
rather, he places it on a lampstand
so that those who enter may see the light.
For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible,
and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.
Take care, then, how you hear.
To anyone who has, more will be given,
and from the one who has not,
even what he seems to have will be taken away."

September 25.—St. Firmin, Bishop, Martyr.—St. Finbarr, Bishop

ST. FIRMIN was a native of Pampelone, in Navarre, initiated in the Christian faith by Honestus, a disciple of St. Saturninus of Toulouse, and consecrated bishop by St. Honoratus, successor to St. Saturninus, in order to preach the Gospel in the remoter parts of Gaul. He preached the faith in the countries of Agen, Anjou, and Beauvais, and being arrived at Amiens, there chose his residence, and founded there a numerous Church of faithful disciples. He received the crown of martyrdom in that city, whether under the prefect, Rictius Varus, or in some other persecution from Decius, in 250, to Diocletian, in 303, is uncertain.

St. Finbarr, who lived in the sixth century, was a native of Connaught, and instituted a monastery or school at Lough Eirc, to which such numbers of disciples flocked, as changed, as it were, a desert into a large city. This was the origin of the city of Cork, which was built chiefly upon stakes, in marshy little islands formed by the river Lea. The right name of our Saint, under which he was baptized, was Lochan; the surname Finbarr, or Barr the White, was afterward given him. He was Bishop of Cork seventeen years, and died in the midst of his friends at Cloyne, fifteen miles from Cork. His body was buried in his own cathedral at Cork, and his relics, some years after, were put in a silver shrine, and kept there, this great church bearing his name to this day. St. Finbarr’s cave or hermitage was shown in a monastery which seems to have been begun by our Saint, and stood to the west of Cork.

Meditiamo, si fa sera

24 settembre 2017 – ore 20.45 – domenica

giornata non semplice per me, dolorosa, triste, sembrerebbe sbagliata, ma non è così. Da ogni scalino scalato si trae buon frutto, non facile da raccogliere, non ancora maturo, ci vuole del tempo e tanta pazienza. Il coraggio nasce dalla paura, la forza viene fuori nella debolezza, nella fatica, nel timore di non farcela. Certo è impossibile agli uomini, ma non è così per il Signore, che tutto può. Il Signore ama e non abbandona, la Sua Parola è maestra di vita, esorta a far bene, a far sempre meglio. Costanza, pazienza, preghiera, per ottenere le grazie.
Non si soccombe dinanzi a Dio, in Lui, con Lui, per Lui, si vive e si lavora, a qualsiasi ora si giunga nel Suo Regno, c'è posto per tutti, amore per tutti, pace e gioia per tutti. Non invidia fra figli, non competizione, ma azione di amore e di generosità. Gesti di pace e di armonia, laboriosità corretta e finalizzata al bene comune, al bene di tutti.
Non abbandoniamo la preghiera, non trascuriamola mai, è nostra concreta risposta all'invito della Mamma Celeste.
Il Regno di Dio sia al primo posto nella vostra vita, impegno continuo, sereno, gioioso.
Ci benedica con tutto il Suo amore la nostra Mamma Celeste

Buona serata
