A Blessed Holy Week to all

We here at Toronto Catholic Witness would like to wish all here a Holy Week to come. 

In our day and age, it is all too easy to become consumed with Church politics while also forgetting who established it, and why.

The Week of Weeks puts that at the forefront. Take a break from Church politics - hard as it is! - and remember. Remember why we have Her, and why it was given to us, and how easily She has been abused over the centuries. Not just by Her ministers, but by us simple lay folk too. 

As it was so powerfully re-presented to me last night in watching The Passion of the Christ by Mel Gibson, we have all spat, kicked, beat, lashed, and otherwise abused Our Lord during His Passion. If not during it, certainly after it.

No one is innocent of sin, save the Sacrificial Lamb and His Mother.
