Charles PopeIn Advent, as we continue to meditate on the Parousia (the magnificent Second Coming of the Lord), we do well to allow our imaginations to be engaged in contemplating the glory that awaits those who are faithful, to meditate on the joy and ecstasy of the culmination of all things!Though we have soberly meditated on the need to be ready and on the great danger that many who are not serious may be lost, for those who ARE ready, what glories...

    On St. Cyril of Jerusalem "His Catechesis Spans God's Entire Plan of Salvation" VATICAN CITY, JUNE 27, 2007 ( Here is a translation of the address Benedict XVI delivered today at the general audience in Paul VI Hall. The reflection focused on St. Cyril of Jerusalem. * * * Dear Brothers and Sisters, Our attention today will be focused on St. Cyril of Jerusalem.

In doing this research I ran across these texts pertaining to the Eucharist. Let me ask this simple question.
