Laboring Side by Side in the Gospel: Holy Thursday and Holy Women

crucifixion-fragment-1311cropBy Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem.

"All of us know from experience how much a mother’s love is immediate, self-forgetful, and self-sacrificing. If the child needs anything, the mother will do anything to meet the need. As the Eucharist satisfies all of our needs, Jesus calls His disciples at the Last Supper His 'little children' (Jn 13:33). He nourishes them with Himself. He is even willing to suffer misunderstanding and strife: 'What I am doing, you do not understand now, but you will understand later' (Jn 13:7). How many times did our own mothers tell us this when we were young, foolish, inexperienced—and were too selfish to appreciate their selfless love?"


Following in His Footprints: Accompanying the Lord through Holy Week

the-entry-into-jerusalem 2By Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem.

“You must identify yourself with Jesus Christ and try to become really and truly another Christ among your fellow men” (Friends of God, no. 128). This week is certainly not about us; it is about what the Lord has done for us, how He did it, why He did it, and what our response should be.


With Eyes Full of Light: The Healing of the Man Born Blind

christ-healing-the-blind-man 2By Fr. John Henry Hanson, O. Praem.

"Like the man born blind, we too enter this world fundamentally blind, blind to what matters most, unless we allow Christ to enlighten the eyes of our hearts (cf. Eph 1:18), or as St Josemaria reflects: 'If … we [do not] prevent Christ from curing our blindness, if we let our Lord apply the clay which, in his hands, becomes a cleansing salve, we shall come to know earthly realities and we shall look upon the divine realities with new vision, with the light of faith. Our outlook will have become Christian' (Christ is Passing By, 71)."
