A Thought from My Holy Land Pilgrimage

Filed under: Catholic Devotions — Fr. John Larson @ 6:54 pm

Here’s something I experienced from the most recent pilgrimage.

Besides our tour of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, I was able to spend some quiet time there on the last day of the pilgrimage. I saw a priest praying his breviary at a bench in the back part of Mount Calvary, opposite the altar at the Eleventh Station – Jesus is nailed to the cross. From this bench one can see the place of crucifixion and watch the pilgrims stream by – sometimes in big groups and sometimes a few at a time.

A little while later, I went there and prayed my breviary. It is the ultimate place to pray the psalms – their full significance is brought out at this place where the sins of the world were redeemed. I will try to remember this when I pray — to place myself on Mount Calvary.

Where’s All the New Interest?

Filed under: Catholic News — Fr. John Larson @ 4:55 pm

As the new year starts, among young involved Catholics, it is clearly in the “New Liturgical Movement.” I’m not talking so much about the blog as the movement itself. It’s all so cutting-edge! (ancient, too). But, the blog gives some sense of what is going on. It’s not at all the majority, but there is definitely something going on here.
