REPAIRED! 17:53 GMT
Today is Monday of Holy Week.
We hear today about the ancient Roman Station, a scene of many murders, a thought from Benedict XVI about the Cross as a sign of torture and of hope, and something from St. Gregory Nazianzus, which just might scare you … a lot.
From St. Gregory:
I am terrified by the left hand of the divine Judge, the goats, and his rebukes from his seat on the throne: they are judged and put at his left not because they stole, committed sacrilegious robberies or adulterous acts, or perpetrated some other forbidden act, but because they did not take care of Christ in those in need.
Pray for Pope Francis.

I am sure people will ask about the chant. These glorious chants for Palm Sunday are from an album in English now called Gregorian Chants / Liturgy for Holy Week by the Choeur Gregorien De Paris. (Click to buy. For those of you in the UK and Canada cut and paste “Choeur Gregorien De Paris” into the appropriate search box at the bottom of the blog.) It is – simply put – one of the best Gregorian chant albums eh-vur… period. It is stunning.
