Taking a break from collecting some thoughts for writing, watching this wonderful talk by Dr. Brant Pitre: Jesus & the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist. This is a good video to watch during Lent, preparing for Passover. Will also be watching The Passion of the Christ with the study guide this time, a first for me.

Thank you for stopping by. Lent continues and I’m staying off of social media except for posting here at the blog and answering necessary emails. May this season of preparation bring you closer to our Lord. God bless you! Peace be with you.

PS: Hey, see that tabernacle? It’s empty during Dr. Pitre’s talk. Would that more parishes would take care to do this when holding non-liturgical events in the worship space, if no more suitable space is available, such as a parish hall.

Christ-Handing-The-Keys-To-St-PeterA few days ago I listened to a great talk by Catholic Bible Scholar, author and speaker, Dr. Brant Pitre, entitled Jesus and the Mystery of the Kingdom. If you’ve encountered folks who try to tell you that Jesus never intended to found the Church, or that He never did found the Kingdom on earth, or that He never intended for there to be a visible Kingdom, or any number of other frequently heard but patently false objections, please listen to this talk. And share it with your friends and family. Listen to or download Dr. Brant Pitre’s Jesus and the Mystery of the Kingdom MP3.
