    Palm Sunday 2020 – Daily Spiritual Counsel Through This Time of Pandemic – Msgr. John Esseff Podcast

    Msgr. Esseff guides his listeners through a deep meditation of  the Passion of Christ as found in the Gospel of Matthew on this Palm Sunday 2020. How often have you been subjected to the events found in Jesus’ suffering?  How can you be healed?  This is a very special podcast.















    Gospel MT  27:11-54





    Jesus stood before the governor, Pontius Pilate, who questioned him,

    “Are you the king of the Jews?”

    Jesus said, “You say so.”

    And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders,

    he made no answer.

    Then Pilate said to him,

    “Do you not hear how many things they are testifying against you?”

    But he did not answer him one word,

    so that the governor was greatly amazed.

    Now on the occasion of the feast

    the governor was accustomed to release to the crowd

    one prisoner whom they wished.

    And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas.

    So when they had assembled, Pilate said to them,

    “Which one do you want me to release to you,

    Barabbas, or Jesus called Christ?”

    For he knew that it was out of envy

    that they had handed him over.

    While he was still seated on the bench,

    his wife sent him a message,

    “Have nothing to do with that righteous man.

    I suffered much in a dream today because of him.”

    The chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds

    to ask for Barabbas but to destroy Jesus.

    The governor said to them in reply,

    “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?”

    They answered, “Barabbas!”

    Pilate said to them,

    “Then what shall I do with Jesus called Christ?”

    They all said,

    “Let him be crucified!”

    But he said,

    “Why? What evil has he done?”

    They only shouted the louder,

    “Let him be crucified!”

    When Pilate saw that he was not succeeding at all,

    but that a riot was breaking out instead,

    he took water and washed his hands in the sight of the crowd,

    saying, “I am innocent of this man’s blood.

    Look to it yourselves.”

    And the whole people said in reply,

    “His blood be upon us and upon our children.”

    Then he released Barabbas to them,

    but after he had Jesus scourged,

    he handed him over to be crucified.

    Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus inside the praetorium

    and gathered the whole cohort around him.

    They stripped off his clothes

    and threw a scarlet military cloak about him.

    Weaving a crown out of thorns, they placed it on his head,

    and a reed in his right hand.

    And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying,

    “Hail, King of the Jews!”

    They spat upon him and took the reed

    and kept striking him on the head.

    And when they had mocked him,

    they stripped him of the cloak,

    dressed him in his own clothes,

    and led him off to crucify him.

    As they were going out, they met a Cyrenian named Simon;

    this man they pressed into service

    to carry his cross.

    And when they came to a place called Golgotha

    — which means Place of the Skull —,

    they gave Jesus wine to drink mixed with gall.

    But when he had tasted it, he refused to drink.

    After they had crucified him,

    they divided his garments by casting lots;

    then they sat down and kept watch over him there.

    And they placed over his head the written charge against him:

    This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.

    Two revolutionaries were crucified with him,

    one on his right and the other on his left.

    Those passing by reviled him, shaking their heads and saying,

    “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days,

    save yourself, if you are the Son of God,

    and come down from the cross!”

    HR-Soberness-1 An Introduction – “The Nature of Our Need” – The Holy Rule of St. Benedict with Fr. Mauritius Wilde OSB

    HR-Soberness-1 An Introduction – “The Nature of Our Need” – The Holy Rule of St. Benedict with Fr. Mauritius Wilde OSB

    Are you being caught up in the swirl and chaos of fear, violence, and anger assaulting our world today?  Father Mauritius Wilde invites us to contemplate the Benedictine understanding of sobriety. He does not advocate for the renunciation of enjoyment, but rather to accept what God has in store for us. This series will shed light on the facets of this ancient and yet up-to-date concept and shows the spiritual and practical significance it can have for us in the current social situation.



    From the Gospel of St. Mark 6:



    The Death of John the Baptist

    14 King Herod heard of it; for Jesus’[b] name had become known. Some[c] said, “John the baptizer has been raised from the dead; that is why these powers are at work in him.” 15 But others said, “It is Eli′jah.” And others said, “It is a prophet, like one of the prophets of old.” 16 But when Herod heard of it he said, “John, whom I beheaded, has been raised.” 17 For Herod had sent and seized John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Hero′di-as, his brother Philip’s wife; because he had married her. 18 For John said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” 19 And Hero′di-as had a grudge against him, and wanted to kill him. But she could not, 20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and kept him safe. When he heard him, he was much perplexed; and yet he heard him gladly. 21 But an opportunity came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for his courtiers and officers and the leading men of Galilee. 22 For when Hero′di-as’ daughter came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his guests; and the king said to the girl, “Ask me for whatever you wish, and I will grant it.” 23 And he vowed to her, “Whatever you ask me, I will give you, even half of my kingdom.” 24 And she went out, and said to her mother, “What shall I ask?” And she said, “The head of John the baptizer.” 25 And she came in immediately with haste to the king, and asked, saying, “I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter.” 26 And the king was exceedingly sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he did not want to break his word to her. 27 And immediately the king sent a soldier of the guard and gave orders to bring his head. He went and beheaded him in the prison, 28 and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother. 29 When his disciples heard of it, they came and took his body, and laid it in a tomb.



    Father Mauritius Wilde, OSB, Ph.D., did his philosophical, theological and doctoral studies in Europe. He is the author of several books and directs retreats regularly. He serves as Prior at Sant’Anselmo in Rome.

    The Lord will guard us – Daily Spiritual Counsel Through This Time of Pandemic – Msgr. John Esseff Podcast

    Msgr. Esseff reflects on the readings for the 5th Saturday of Lent and suggests spiritual reading for the journey to Holy Week.















    Responsorial Psalm JEREMIAH 31:10, 11-12ABCD, 13





    R.    (see 10d)  The Lord will guard us, as a shepherd guards his flock.

    Hear the word of the LORD, O nations,

    proclaim it on distant isles, and say:

    He who scattered Israel, now gathers them together,

    he guards them as a shepherd his flock.

    R.    The Lord will guard us, as a shepherd guards his flock.

    The LORD shall ransom Jacob,

    he shall redeem him from the hand of his conqueror.

    Shouting, they shall mount the heights of Zion,

    they shall come streaming to the LORD’s blessings:

    The grain, the wine, and the oil,

    the sheep and the oxen.

    R.    The Lord will guard us, as a shepherd guards his flock.

    Then the virgins shall make merry and dance,

    and young men and old as well.

    I will turn their mourning into joy,

    I will console and gladden them after their sorrows.

    R.    The Lord will guard us, as a shepherd guards his flock.

    Episode 6 – Refuse to Accept Discouragement – Begin Again: The Spiritual Legacy of Ven. Bruno Lanteri with Fr. Timothy Gallagher

    In this episode, Fr. Timothy Gallagher discusses the importance of the virtues of prudence, humility, and perseverance in the life of Ven. Lanteri and in his instruction to his spiritual directees.  He speaks of what is at the heart of what turns discouragement into hope –  that it is very important to have a deep sense of the goodness of God.   Ven. Lanteri encourages all of us even today to recall  God’s mercy, faithfulness, and love in the circumstances and challenges found in the context of our vocation, whether in the married, single, or religious life.  Order in our spiritual practice, used in a flexible manner, is essential to living out our vocation.

    During the course of this series, we find that the Ven. Bruno Lanteri’s life and mission contain significant spiritual relevance to nurture the hearts of today’s religious and lay faithful.
