    A prophecy of the passion of Christ.

    Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? And he shall grow up as a tender plant before him, and as a root out of a thirsty ground: there is no beauty in him, nor comeliness: and we have seen him, and there was no sightliness, that we should be desirous of him: Despised, and the most abject of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with infirmity: and his look was as it were hidden and despised, whereupon we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our infirmities and carried our sorrows: and we have thought him as it were a leper, and as one struck by God and afflicted. But he was wounded for our iniquities, he was bruised for our sins: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his bruises we are healed.

    All we like sheep have gone astray, every one hath turned aside into his own way: and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was offered because it was his own will, and he opened not his mouth: he shall be led as a sheep to the slaughter, and shall be dumb as a lamb before his shearer, and he shall not open his mouth. He was taken away from distress, and from judgment: who shall declare his generation? because he is cut off out of the land of the living: for the wickedness of my people have I struck him. And he shall give the ungodly for his burial, and the rich for his death: because he hath done no iniquity, neither was there deceit in his mouth. And the Lord was pleased to bruise him in infirmity: if he shall lay down his life for sin, he shall see a long-lived seed, and the will of the Lord shall be prosperous in his hand.

    Because his soul hath laboured, he shall see and be filled: by his knowledge shall this my just servant justify many, and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I distribute to him very many, and he shall divide the spoils of the strong, because he hath delivered his soul unto death, and was reputed with the wicked: and he hath borne the sins of many, and hath prayed for the transgressors. – Isaiah 53

    For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. – John 3:16

  3. Knight4GFC says:

    “O Love, all love transcending,
    O Wisdom from on high!
    O Truth unchanged, unchanging,
    surrendered up to die!
    Was ever a love so wondrous!
    That from his heavn’ly throne
    God should descend among us
    to suffer for his own” – verse from “O Sacred Head Surrounded”

    • You were up awfully early this morning, Knight! Or awfully late last night. Thank you for all of this. What a perfect set of old, new and newer scripture and verse to reflect on today.

        Thanks Grunt! Yes I was up late and early last night meditating on Christ’s Passion and His most profound and sacred Love He has for His children. I could’nt sleep. Sunday is coming! 🙂

  5. Some good background here on why traditionalists fear the new pope (but probably shouldn’t) and why some liberals are a little too excited (and probably shouldn’t be).

    • Knight4GFC says:

      I AM A CATHOLIC BY FAITH. NOT BY INSTITUTION. THAT CARRYS NO LABEL. With that being said, I do not trust the media on either side which fulfill their own agenda. Men will be known for the deeds that they do. Eyes wide open. 4GFC!

      “You never see Muslims protesting Islamic supremacists such as Imam Faisal Rauf or Reza Aslan,” said Geller on her blog. “But there are always plenty of Jews protesting against defenders of Israel. I have never seen Muslims at pro-Israel rallies. I have seen plenty of Jews at anti-Israel rallies”.
      That’s a shocker! I have never seen any Muslims at any pro-Israel rallies either! Dang! Hmm… by golly! There’s something to this! *sarc*
