More Pontifications Lent, Holy Week & Easter Devotionals (from 2005)

From the Internet Archive site, I’ve been able to pull together this collection of the Lent, Holy Week & Easter devotional citations (quotes / devotionals / prayers) posted by Fr. Al Kimel at his renowned Pontifications blog in 2005.

***

“In his humility Christ entered the dark regions of our fallen world”

“Spit in my face and pierce my side”

“For the Cross of the Lord is become glorious in the might of the Crucified”

“Oh! Good, Good, Good, my Lord”

“Every place has become an oratory”

“Life lock’d in death, heav’n in a shell!”

“Through his blood he has made God turn to you in mercy”

“And thou couldst see me sinning”

“The Lord of all creation washed his disciples’ feet!”

“Judas was the treasurer of Satan’s poison”

“Blood of God’s own bleeding”

“I saw the Lord of Hosts rack’d out”

“How shall I count what thee befell, and each grief tell?”

“Death swallowed Him, not knowing Him”

“Henceforth Hell belongs to Christ”

“Yesterday I was crucified with Christ; today I am glorified with Him”

“Glorious is our Paschal Festival”

“His Resurrection embraces every man”

“Thomas: after seeing the wounds”

“We give glory to You, Lord, who raised up Your cross to span the jaws of death”

“The glory of Christ’s resurrection threw a lustre upon everything”

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 work 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.
