Notre Dame Cathedral to broadcast crown of thorns veneration on Good Friday

By Courtney Mares/ catholicnewsagency.com
: One year after the world watched the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris burn, the Archbishop of Paris will display the relic of Christ’s crown of thorns for veneration during a Good Friday broadcast. “When Mary is at the foot of the cross, she knows that from the most absolute evil God can always draw a much greater one," Archbishop Michel Aupetit of Paris said in an online press conference on April 7. “I do not see any meaning in the cathedral fire or the COVID-19 epidemic. On the other hand, I know that God can bring much greater out of the misfortune that strikes us,” he said. The Good Friday meditation before the crown of thorns will be broadcast live from inside the Notre-Dame Cathedral from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. local time April 9, days before the first anniversary of the fire....

Patriarch Sako Easter Message: May the Lord protect Iraq and the world

Agenzia Fides
: In the days preceding Easter, Christians "are not able to celebrate these important liturgical events" as they used to do annually due to the current situation, but "they keep praying at their homes" making their hope as a real “Pass-Over” from darkness to light, from fragility to strength; from illness to health". This is what Chaldean Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako writes in a message released in view of Easter and also sent to Agenzia Fides. In this time, which also sees the Easter celebrations marked by the scourge of the pandemic crisis - says the Iraqi Cardinal - "Everyone must analyze their own behavior. Self-criticism should be everyone’s “duty”, since morals have been falling back, marked by corruption, greed, stealing public money, violence, threats, murders, displacement, divorce...

Palm Sunday 2020: Message of Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa

lpj.org
: Following is the homily of Most Rev. Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem for the Mass of the Lord’s Supper/ Holy Thursday 2020: Holy Sepulcher – Jerusalem, April 9, 2020 Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ, May the Lord grant you peace! We gather here at the beginning of this unusual Paschal Triduum, to celebrate, in the holiest Place, the events of our salvation. The circumstances are difficult. Externally, there is nothing festive today. We have already told each other several times in these days that it is strange to celebrate in this manner. But perhaps, in these semi-clandestine celebrations of these days, precisely because without triumphal entrances and solemn and crowded ceremonies, there is something that we can...
