How Beautiful Is the Passion of Christ – Lyrics

By Florence D’Costa – My dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, my plea to you during this Lenten Season is to RETURN TO CHRIST.  Each and every one of us have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.  No one can say,”I am without sin.”  Jesus Christ suffered so much humiliation, pain, torment and was betrayed by one of his own disciples. SIN IS UGLY and it is important for us to walk away from Sin and Ugliness.  Jesus Christ is Beautiful, for though He was man, He was also God.

During this Lenten Season, Christ Jesus is calling us to walk away from sin and to walk into His arms.  It is very important for each of us to examine our conscience every night and to Say A Sorry Prayer or an Act of Contrition before we go to bed.  Many of us also commit sins of Omission.  There are many things that God is calling us to do but we simply turn a blind eye to.

Christ Jesus is inviting us to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation during this Lenten Season so that our minds, hearts and souls would be purified.  Prayer is having a Conversation or a meeting with Christ Jesus.  Why not make it a point to meet Him everyday for awhile? Let us try to MAKE A COMPLETE TURN AROUND AND WALK TOWARDS HIM. Let us look into His eyes and say, “I am sorry Jesus for hurting you and for sinning against you. Please do forgive me.”  If we do say this simple prayer, we will surely receive enough grace to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation is so very important, for the sins that we confess will surely be forgiven and a GREAT PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING WILL DESCEND INTO OUR HEARTS.

As I am a Catechist, many children have told me that they are afraid to go for confession because they feel that the priest will have a bad opinion of them when they confess their sins to him.  So, I told them to confess their sins to the priest whom they trust, not that any priest would regard you as bad or label you as a SINNER.  I also told them that in the Confessional, Jesus Christ and the priest awaits them and that it is JESUS CHRIST WHO FORGIVES SINS and the priest gives them absolution.

I ask the children as to how they feel if they commit sins and they said that they feel unhappy when they sin.  So I told them that it is important for them to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation for Jesus Christ would forgive them their sins through the Priest and that once forgiven, they would be HAPPY ONCE AGAIN.

So, my dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, what is stopping you FROM BEING FORGIVEN?  WHAT IS STOPPING YOU FROM OBTAINING HAPPINESS?

Even if you have not gone for Confession in years, say 10, 20, 30 or 40 years, the time has come for you to BE FORGIVEN AND TO EXPERIENCE THE CLOSENESS OF JESUS CHRIST.  Try approaching the Sacrament of Reconciliation and you will find that the burden that you have been carrying for a long time, will be taken away by Jesus Christ and He will place HIS PEACE IN YOUR HEART.

PLEASE DO GIVE IT A TRY.  GO FOR CONFESSION AND THEN RECEIVE THE BODY OF CHRIST WHEN YOU GO FOR MASS.  YOU WILL DEFINITELY BE ON TOP OF THE WORLD.

I do remember the words of this Song.  It is a Pop Song but we can sing this Song to Jesus Christ. The words are :

I am on the top of the World looking
Down on Creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the Love that I found
Ever since you’ve been around
Your Love puts me
At the top of the World!

Well, Jesus Christ can put each one of us ON TOP OF THE WORLD and give us PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING.

At the Foot of the Cross – Lyrics

Are you feeling burdened or stressed.  Are you worried about something that you cannot solve?  Are you sick with some terminal illness?  Feeling weak and alone?

I have some good news for you. Most importantly it is necessary to forgive all those who have hurt you and to ask forgiveness from those whom you have hurt. Then leave it all at the Foot of the Cross.

Jesus Christ died for you and for me.  Leave your burdens at the Foot of the Cross and believe that you are Loved by God and He will relieve you of your burdens, your sickness and whatever else is keeping you down.

JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU AND HE DIED FOR YOU.

Jesus Christ said, ‘YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL”.  NOW BE READY TO RECEIVE A FLOOD OF BLESSINGS.

LOVE = THE CROSS

We are in the Season of Lent – It is a time to contemplate LOVE ON THE CROSS.  Today, let us simply sit quietly and look at the Cross. What do we see?  We see Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God and Man, hanging from a tree, INNOCENT AND SINLESS.

We see :

  •          OBEDIENCE,
  •          LOVE,
  •          WILLINGNESS TO GIVE UP HIS LIFE FOR LOVE OF US.
  •           SUFFERING
  •           ONE WHO WAS CONDEMNED BY HIS OWN PEOPLE
  •           HE ONLY DID GOOD FOR HIS PEOPLE
  •           THE BLINDNESS OF THOSE WHO PERSECUTED HIM
  •           GREAT HUMILIATION. HE WAS LAUGHED AND SCORNED AT.
  •            FORGIVENESS –  “FORGIVE THEM FATHER FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO”
  •            THE PLAQUE AT THE TOP OF THE CROSS – “THE KING OF THE JEWS”
  •            HE IS MORE THAN A KING.  HE IS THE KING OF KINGS.
  •            HIS NAIL PIERCED HANDS AND FEET.
  •            WE SEE THE SON OF MAN’S LASHED AND WOUNDED BODY.
  •             LOVE FOR HIS MOTHER WHEN HE GAVE HIS MOTHER TO JOHN.

What is Jesus Christ saying to each one of us from the Cross :

  •              I LOVE YOU.  I WILLINGLY DIED FOR YOU.
  •              I WANT YOU TO LOVE ME IN RETURN AND TO LIVE FOREVER WITH ME IN PARADISE.
  •               IT IS NECESSARY FOR YOU TO CARRY YOUR CROSS EVERYDAY AND FOLLOW ME
  •               EVERY INDIVIDUAL DOES HAVE PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES.
  •               I WILL GIVE YOU GRACE AND I WILL PROTECT YOU.
  •               I WILL CARRY YOU ON MY SHOULDERS WHEN YOU ARE UNABLE TO CARRY ON.                      YOU WILL THEN SEE ONLY ONE SET OF FOOT PRINTS ON THE SAND AND THOSE WOULD BE MINE.
  •                DO NOT BE AFRAID FOR I AM WITH YOU TILL THE END OF TIME.
  •                I HAVE WON THE BATTLE AGAINST EVIL AS I AM ALIVE – I AM THE RESURRECTED LORD.  I HAD TO DIE SO THAT I WOULD RISE VICTORIOUSLY.
  •                I AM A WINNER AND SO ARE YOU.  BUT YOU MUST BE READY TO ACCEPT SUFFERING IN THIS LIFE.
  •                I WILL GIVE YOU A CROWN IN THE NEXT LIFE AND FOR EVERY SUFFERING THERE I WILL PLACE A PRECIOUS STONE IN YOUR CROWN.
  •                IF YOU LOVE ME AND ARE HAPPY TO ACCEPT YOUR SUFFERING AND PAINS, THE JOYS THAT YOU WOULD EXPERIENCE WITH ME IN HEAVEN WILL BE INDESCRIBABLE.
  •                 FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE TEMPTED TO WALK THE BROAD ROAD OF SIN, I APPEAL TO YOU TO TURN AROUND AND COME BACK TO ME.  THE BROAD ROAD LEADS TO HELL AND DAMNATION.
  •                  SUFFERING CLEANSES, PURIFIES AND DRAWS YOU CLOSER AND CLOSER TO ME FOR I AM THE RESURRECTED  LORD.
  •                  AS YOU COME CLOSER AND CLOSER TO ME, YOU WILL EXPERIENCE  LOVE, JOY, PEACE, FORBEARANCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL, PATIENCE, CHARITY, GENEROSITY AND CHASTITY.  I WILL CAUSE  ALL THE FRUITS OF MY HOLY SPIRIT WHICH YOU RECEIVED IN CONFIRMATION TO SURFACE AND BECOME VIBRANT IN YOU.
  •                  MY DEAR PEOPLE, I LOVE YOU.  COME BACK TO ME AND MY FATHER WILL PROTECT YOU UNDER HIS WING.

MY ARMS ARE OUTSTRETCHED WAITING FOR YOU TO COME BACK INTO MY EMBRACE.

MY EMBRACE IS HEAVEN.  MY EMBRACE IS GRACE.  MY EMBRACE IS A HAVEN.  IN MY EMBRACE YOU WILL BE SAFE ON THIS EARTH AND IN THE NEXT.

COME BACK MY PEOPLE – COME TASTE AND SEE!!!!!!
