The Passion of The Christ (Part 4)

The Holy Father has come out with a statement as Peggy Noonan writes. BTW I think she is spectacular.

It reminds me of a story I heard in the Holy land about when Paul VI made a tour to the place where they speculate Jesus made breakfast for his disciples after the resurrection.

They say he approached the rock, layed down and embraced it and prayed for a few minutes. Occasional a deep groan of contemplation would escape his lips. After he was done he stood up and pronounced “This is the place.”

I personally think there is more to the Holy Father’s statement than mere opinion. I love the fact that it is so profoundly metaphysical as well. It is as it was. That has beautiful ramifications for the representation of the sacrifice of Calvary on our altars ever week.

JPII we love you.
