Good Friday of the Year of the Lord 2021

When the Blessed Apostle Paul affirmed: "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me " (Maybe 2,20), in those who wondered the price he paid to reach this goal? The last was his blood price, when in Rome he was executed by beheading.

.

In one of his epistles the Blessed Apostle Peter admonishes us:

.

“You know how you were freed from that meaningless life you inherited from your fathers: the price of your ransom was not paid in gold or silver, things that pass; you have been redeemed with the precious blood of Christ. He sacrificed himself for you as a pure and spotless lamb. God had destined him for this even before the creation of the world; now, in these times that are the last, he has manifested for you. And you, through him, believe in God who raised him from the dead and gave him glory. So your faith and your hope are directed towards God ". (The Pt 1, 18-21)

.

To announce these truths a whole series of presuppositions are needed which start first of all from the three theological virtues, which are faith, hope and charity (cf.. The Cor 13,13). But to announce the Holy Gospel of the dead Christ the Redeemer, resurrected and ascended to heaven, to recover the lost, wash the souls of sinners and support the afflicted, very material means are also needed; and not from today, but since the first apostolic age.

.

Someone might ask: between the many days of the year and the various holidays and solemnities, there was no day other than Good Friday, to ask help? Or maybe we are talking about money under the agonized cross of Christ? Yes, because in order to bring that redeeming blood to men we need means that are now increasingly scarce, even if our apostolic work is not simply intense, it is often exhausting.

.

We trust in your generous help, because we need the means to be able to work to redeem you at a high price, not in gold or silver, but with the precious blood of Christ. Therefore, those who wish to make their contribution reach The island of Patmos now almost devoid of means, can use the convenient and safe system PayPal or our current account. All the details are at the bottom of this page.

.

May God bless you and assist us in this difficult stormy sea on which Peter's boat sails, beaten by increasingly violent waves. This is why our Johannine Island deserves to be supported.

  1. Mah .... I am stunned reading [Censored]

    ______________________

    Editor's note

    gravely insulting messages like yours have come to us since 2019, since Father Ariel first wrote a theological article and then later a book to refute the heresies of the Neocatechumenal Way [cf.. WHO].
    The arguments and insults are always the same, repetitive and obsessive. Equally always the same technique: bogus e-mail addresses are reported, inexistent. And down with insults galore.
    Send us what you wrote with your real e-mail address, first we will publish his flood of insults, then we will pass it all on to the Postal Police.
    And instead of insulting the presbyters “not aligned” with the sacred neocatechumenal verb, see to pray for Kiko Arguello, has 82 years old and is hospitalized for Covid-19 infection. Dedicate energy and prayers to him and above all to the salvation of his soul, instead of dedicating insults to the Fathers de The island of Patmos.

    Editor's note

    Send three priests a flood of insults like yours and then conclude the message with “Happy Easter”, it is like firing a barrage of machine guns on the tabernacle and then reciting: "The Most Holy and Divine Sacrament be praised and thanked every moment".

    Be ashamed and convert!

  3. Non mi scandalizzo.

    Ogni cattolico dovrebbe vedere il denaro relativamente al bene che da esso si può fare. Oltre alle opere di misericordia corporale è fondamentale supportare i difensori della dottrina cattolica all’interno della Chiesa perché dove c’è confusione è bene fare chiarezza.
    Voi avete dimostrato di fare le pulci ai movimenti più in vista e di smascherare santoni di grido i quali con un linguaggio suadente hanno fatto di Cristo ciò che essi volevano.
    Per questi motivi credo che una donazione fatta a voi sia in realtà una donazione fatta a noi
    Chi legge si scrolli di dosso la tirchieria e tiri fuori i soldi!
    Buon lunedì dell’Angelo a tutti!
    Attilio

    1. Yes, caro Attilio, è vero ciò che scrive:


      «Voi avete dimostrato di fare le pulci ai movimenti più in vista e di smascherare santoni di grido i quali con un linguaggio suadente hanno fatto di Cristo ciò che essi volevano»

      Per questo lavoriamo con grande fatica e duri sacrifici dei quali non ci lamentiamo, perché non vendiamo specialità elettive a deboli alla ricerca di un facile posto al sole dentro la Chiesa, come fanno certi invadenti e arroganti movimenti laicali; perché non incantiamo il people ox che oggi è peggiore assai di quello narrato da Giovanni Boccaccio nella novella di Friar Cipolla; perché non stuzzichiamo il prurito dei fideisti fanatici fanatizzati da guru pseudo cattolici tutt’altro che disinteressati attraverso messaggi farlocchi della Beata Vergine Maria, o eccitando il loro infantilismo malato con segreti che devono essere a breve rivelati, o con immagini catastrofiche seguite dalla garanzia del trionfo del Cuore Immacolato di Maria, come se la Beatissima Vergine fosse non la Mater Dei ma la Fata Morgana, o come se nel I believe fosse scritto e recitato: «Credo nell’imminente trionfo del Cuore Immacolato di Maria».

      Etc.… etc.…

      E quando si indica la cristica via della fede, che parte da una stalla e finisce con quattro chiodi su un croce, molti preferisco il più semplice e facile fideismo oracolistico e falso-miracolistico. E per forza di cose si è destinati a lavorare con scarsi mezzi e grandi sacrifici. Questa è la realtà e, sincerely, ogni tanto mi domando come siamo riusciti ad andare avanti dall’ottobre 2014 today.
