A collection of fantastic Holy Week Devotions from the Pontifications blog from 2004

While reviewing some old 2004 Holy Week posts from the L&B archives at the Internet Archive site, I came across a post with links to 18 Holy Week devotional posts compiled by Fr. Al Kimel at his old blog Pontifications.  Amazingly, the archive links are working.  (I say “amazingly” because I had been under the impression that the blog’s archives had been totally destroyed and lost when Fr. Kimel lost the original domain name to the site).  Anyway… it is a great pleasure to find these links work.

Here’s the L&B archived post with all the links

***

Here’s a detailed list of all the linked entries

Prayer to the Lord Jesus Crucified

Every Day is Christ Crucified

He is the mute Lamb, the slain Lamb

The Agony

“The Judge Judged in our Place”

“The Crucifying Love of the Father, the Crucified Love of the Son”

“The Confession and Praise of God’s Holiness”

“O Sweet Exchange!”

Pange lingua gloriosi

“You see him, you touch him, you eat him!”

“Priest, Victim, Sacrifice”

Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus

“The greatest thief, murderer, adulterer, blasphemer”

“The Tree of Life and Glory”

“Hell has been filled with splendor”

“There is a great silence on earth today”

Alleluia! Christ is risen!

“O Heavenly Bounty, Spiritual Feast, Divine Passover”

Note: I’ve found that links to the internet archive are not always all that stable, sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t.  It is quite surprising to find any Pontifications archives links working at all because there was a domain name issue (a commercial site bought Fr. Al’s old domain name and subsequently blocked all his archives).  The moral of the story:  If a link works and you value the post, make a PDF (using http://www.pdfmyurl.com or a similar site) or save it in some other fashion.  I regret that I am unable to take the time early this Maundy Thursday morning to somehow preserve these entries, but hopefully the links will remain valid for some time.
