Today's Gospel

Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen. 

When Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son. 

After that, he saith to the disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own.


  1. Mary Magdalene, the woman caught in the irregular situation.

    “It is consummated.” (St. John 19, 30)

    In holy love
    She’ll consummate
    The woman’s womb
    Does monthly wait.

    A soul whose heart
    Will beat and bleed
    Through little body’s
    Gift, God’s seed.

    Her agonizing
    Ripped and torn
    A flood of blood
    Her child is born.

    Creating still
    Breasts with cream
    Consummate mother
    Reigns supreme.

    Then sudden-shock
    God’s gift He’ll call
    She cries, “Have pity!”
    Then falls the pall.

    While death in love
    Is mercy severe
    It’s death of love
    That we should fear.

    For Christ Who died
    Upon His cross
    Like bloody birth
    Came Life not loss.

    The clock struck three
    No evil got her
    Like His Mother forever...
    A consum-Mater!

    1. Our Lady had no loss of blood or labor pains when She miraculously gave birth to Our Lord. This was infallibly defined as dogma at the Council of the Lateran in 649 A.D.

    2. The reference to "bloody birth" is clearly not to the virginal birth of Christ from His Immaculate Mother, but an image or allusion to normal births which are often bloody. Christ did shed His Precious Blood so that we can have that spiritual birth of Redemption. Maricusa

  3. Thank you for posting this entry.
    Has anyone noticed the new trend of groups like 'Red Ice Radio' doing shows on the collapse of Western Civilization? The targeted audience is alienated white men & women.
    If you notice,they do shows once every few weeks on 'white neo-paganism' and 'the truth behind Yule & Christmas'
    I need to read the scriptures more and stay off the Internet.

    1. There are so many great Catholic books and they are so gratifying and fulfilling to read.

  4. Definitely need to change it up,the news & Internet can make someone very angry and full of hate.

    1. Some things are worth hating.

    2. I agree 100% because without righteous anger or righteous hatred of Sin,we cannot truly Love.
      What I am referring to is the media,banking,and government agenda of trying to make the races hate and fight each other.
