St. Peter Julian Eymard on the importance of assisting at Mass

MASScross

In order to comprehend the value of the Holy Mass, you must remember that this sublime act is in itself greater than all the good works, virtues, and merits of all the Saints together, the Blessed Virgin Mary not excepted, from the beginning until the end of time. For each Mass repeats (makes present for us again) the (one-time, once for all) Sacrifice of the God-Man Who, dying as man and as God, raising His death to the dignity of a divine action, gives it thereby an infinite worth.

“Trick” question: Are there two personalities in Christ, a human “I” and a divine “I”?

One personality … or two?

It is popular for modern(ist) theologians to speak of two personalities in Christ. Some have gone so far as to claim that there are two persons in Christ – and, to us, it is difficult to understand how such speculation on the part of certain scholars has not yet been openly condemned as heresy.

On account of the one person of Christ, the Church prays in her Creed: I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ. This means not only that Jesus Christ alone is the Lord, but also implies that he his one. Christ the Lord is one, he is not two – thus, though he is both human and divine, Jesus is one divine person which is the person of the Eternal Word.

Still, it is common enough for these modern theologians to speculate regarding the personality of Christ, they ask: Granted that the Lord is one person; is it yet possible to claim that there are two personalities, one human and one divine? We admit that the Church has not yet pronounced on this issue; however, for reasons which will be manifest below, we argue that it is not safe for a Catholic to suppose that there are two personalities in the one person of our Savior.

How is greek mythology different from the bible?

Q: How is Greek mythology different from the bible?
Weren´t they both created by humans? Weren´t they both written by humans? Don´t they both tell incredibly over-thought morals? Aren´t they both explaining to you the world as a “science for dummies” book?

A: The Bible is a prophetic book, predicting many, many years in advance, thousands of events … all of which have (so far) truly come to pass … just as described.

Most of those prophecies describe the earthly life and the historical, divine person-hood of Jesus Christ, the promised Redeemer of all mankind.

Since no other book of any kind has ever been able to accurately predict the future, it’s clear that God is the true author of the Bible … and man merely serves as his scribe.

By comparison, Greek mythology was simply an appealing way for ancient man to try to explain natural events and processes.

At best, Greek mythology is based on the fanciful accounts of ancient, supernatural beings who, though powerful, were not truly god(s).

The Bible likely speaks of these beings here:

Genesis 6:4 Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.

Most of these (Nephilim) were destroyed by Noah’s flood, but others survived, and along with their offspring, caused big problems in later years. Goliath is probably the best known of them all.

In so far as the objective of all sacred scripture (the Bible): The Bible does not explain how the heavens go … but how to go to heaven.

Perhaps that might constitute incredible moral over thought to you … but to me … it’s just common sense.
