Broken Body

MP3 Music Playlist: 

I wrote this song in the 1990s about an athetoid cerebral palsy student who came into my class at the age of 14. He had no control of his limbs save some control of his head and was unable to speak. 
He needed total care. He seemed to have normal intelligence. This was confirmed when we got him a computer with a program that enabled him to select words and sentences using his head to control a switch. He had a wonderful family who were devout Catholics.

I had some wonderful conversations with him about his condition in relation to his faith in the good Lord and about heaven where the  Lord will give us a new glorified body like his own. Between the loving care he received from his mom, dad, and brother and the gift of Faith, he was grateful to be alive and prayed for us all. I was truly blessed to know him and his family.

Responsorial Psalm 30(31):2,6,12-13,15-17,25 for Good Friday

Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

In you, O Lord, I take refuge.
Let me never be put to shame.
In your justice, set me free,
Into your hands I commend my spirit.
It is you who will redeem me, Lord.

Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

Hail! Holy Joseph, hail! ♫ (AI-generated)

Hi! As we celebrated St. Joseph this week, I wanted to make this week some experiments with AI, using Suno. The results are below, and they do not sound that bad... What do you think of it?
 

The Paschal Mystery


The Church leads us to follow Christ in his suffering, death, and Resurrection, in a focused way, during the liturgical days it calls the Triduum.  Following Christ helps us through our own small or sometimes heavy experiences of various kinds of suffering and “death(s)” that we can offer up in union with Christ for the salvation of others. The Church has experienced this in her history as in the case of the protestant reformation in England, when the church underwent great persecution, martyrdom, and seeming death. We will all experience a final suffering and physical death and by God’s grace our resurrection. The Church teaches us that there will be a final suffering, death, and, resurrection of the Church at the end time. How or when it happens is not specified.

Responsorial Psalm 21(22):8-9,17-20,23-24 for Palm Sunday - My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

MP3 Music Playlist: 


Responsorial Psalm 21(22):8-9,17-20,23-24 for Palm Sunday

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

All who see me deride me.
They curl their lips, they toss their heads.
‘He trusted in the Lord, let him save him;
let him release him if this is his friend.’

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Many dogs have surrounded me,

Psalm 91

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Psalm 91 speaks of the right to the ultimate and unlimited trust in God if you follow God’s will.  In spite of all the terrible things that can happen to you, some of which the psalm addresses, you know that God is your final and unfailing refuge. Even when no human being can or will help you, You can trust in God who is almighty, and love itself. This does not mean we can tempt God to protect or help us if we are acting outside of his will, as Satan tempted Jesus(in his human nature) when atop the parapet 
of the temple in Jerusalem. Jesus rebuked him by quoting Deut. 6: 16. - “Thow shall not tempt the Lord your God".  We can easily fall into this temptation.

Over Jerusalem Weep

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Our Lord wept as he looked at Jerusalem just before Holy Week: 
 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
