Darkness at Noon: Reflections on Passion Sunday

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 03.30.12

Crowned with thorns, our Lord is lifted up on the cross, where He dies as “King of the Jews.” Notice how many times He is called “king” in today’s Gospel - mostly in scorn and mockery.

As we hear the long accounts of His passion, at every turn we must remind ourselves - He suffered this cruel and unusual violence, for us.

He is the Suffering Servant foretold by Isaiah in today’s First Reading. He...  [Continue Reading]

The "Hour" Come: Reflections on the Fifth Sunday of Lent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 03.22.12

Spiritual Sacrifices: Reflections on the Third Sunday of Lent

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 03.09.12

Jesus does not come to destroy the temple, but to fulfill it (see Matthew 5:17) - to reveal its true purpose in God’s saving plan.

He is the Lord the prophets said would come - to purify the temple, banish the merchants, and make it a house of prayer for all peoples (see Zechariah 14:21; Malachi 3:1-5; Isaiah 56:7).
