“yet the world did not know him”

John 1:9-14 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Can They Edit Jesus out of Easter?

The Resurrection

Jesus Christ is Risen! Alleluia!

  • “What’s in a name?”

No, Ms. Omar, Notre-Dame de Paris is not “art & architecture” — it’s an OUR LADY OF PARIS CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL.

No, Mr. Obama & Mrs. Clinton, the martyrs in Sri Lanka were not “Easter worshipers” — they were CHRISTIANS. They were CATHOLICS. That’s the reason they were murdered.

No, they cannot edit Jesus out of Easter. But they will keep trying. Stay vigilant!

Have a blessed Easter season.

Heroic Crown of Sonnets

 

Christ Carrying the Cross

It started as a prayer, “wrote itself” during April, 2018, and by the end of the month–tragically–dedication presented itself.

It feels like a devotional to me. It has helped me, and I hope it will help others as well.

Never despair. Never give up your faith. Never let your soul slumber.

Alleluia, heroic crown of sonnets, for Alfie Evans

P.S. Several people told me they were not sure it’s okay to share the sonnets without my permission. By all means, you have my permission. Please, give credit to the author, and do share the sonnets. Thank you.
