Hymn for Good Friday – O Sacred Head Surrounded

2 04 2010

The hymn is based on a long medieval Latin poem, Salve mundi salutare, with stanzas addressing the various parts of Christ’s body hanging on the Cross. The last part of the poem, from which the hymn is taken, is addressed to Christ’s head, and begins “Salve caput cruentatum.” The poem is attributed to St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153).

Our perspective of life determines how we live it. The following clever and inspirational video drives home this truth:





What is the Trinity?

26 07 2009

Take a look at the video clip in which Father Robert Barron gives us a beautiful explanation of the mystery of the Holy Trinity. The Trinity is a mystery not because it is a puzzle or enigma that we cannot understand, but rather it has a meaning so deep and so vast that the human mind’s able to comprehend a tiniest bit of its truth. It is when we see God face to face (which is beatific vision) that we will grow in our knowledge of God as Trinity and as love.  It’ll take eternity to plumb the depths of this infinite and glorious mystery.

NB. Fr Robert Barron is a sought-after speaker on the spiritual life-from prestigious universities to YouTube to national conferences and private retreats. The prominent theologian and podcasting priest is one of the world’s great and most innovative teachers of Catholicism. His global media ministry called Word on Fire has a simple but revolutionary mission – to evangelize the culture.





The Catholic Priest Today

22 07 2009

Take a look at this video documentary from the Archdiocese of Chicago, produced by the Midwest Theological Forum; The Catholic Priest Today: a man of faith, a man of tradition, a man of God. It is made with the intention of helping those who have interest in the Catholic priesthood to discern. The documentary touches briefly on the scandals that hurt Church in Chicago and how young men are coming forward to give themselves to God in response to the challenges that confront the Catholic Church.

Here are some screen-captures from the documentary:
