LENTCAzT 46 2018 – Holy Saturday: Jesus and Hell

Today is Holy Saturday.  The Roman Station is … ooops!  Tricked you.  There isn’t any until the Vigil, which traditionally ought to start at Midnight.  


Participate in the sacred rites.  We are our rites.  Let God give you what He wants to give through the sacred liturgical signs and actions which make present the mysteries they renew.

I made these podcasts this year in gratitude especially to benefactors who help me and this blog.  Thank you, everyone, for listening.

Today we hear of the harrowing of Hell, when the Lord descended to the dead to find the righteous in the “hell” which is also called the Bosom of Abraham.  He left the damned where they must remain for eternity, in the Hell of the damned.

Today, just a tiny little bit of amazing chant from Good Friday.  Like an echo.


If these podcasts are useful to you and yours, perhaps you might consider making a donation.

    I think I mentioned this before, but I’m investigating probably the biggest satanic cult in New Mexico (I was drawn into this case as a licensed Private Investigator–my boss gave me this case.) It has opened my eyes to the demonic and the reality of hell. Investigating this cult has actually strengthened my faith because I’ve had, for instance, things thrown at me, lights turn on-and-of while I’m writing reports. Really crazy stuff. Demons are real, and according to Genesis, “it’s desire is for you.” I’m not a demonologist and actually contacted a Catholic exorcist Priest to try to make sense of this. Father Z is right: go to confession. The sacraments are necessary for our salvation. The game is over the second we die.

    Take care Father Z. Your voice reveals your “under the weather” condition. Thanks for doing these podcasts again this year. They are very helpful to me; they help me have a holier Lent.
