“Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you” (Jon 3:2). With these words, the Lord spoke to Jonah and directed him to set out towards that great city, which was about to be destroyed for its many evils. In the Gospel, we also see Jesus setting out towards Galilee to preach the Good News (cf. Mk 1:14). Both readings reveal a God who turns his gaze towards cities past and present. The Lord sets out on a journey: to Nineveh, to Galilee, to  Lima, to Trujillo and Puerto Maldonado… the Lord comes here. He sets out to enter into our individual, concrete histories. We celebrated this not long ago: he is Emmanuel, the God who wants to be with us always. Yes, here in Lima, or wherever you are living, in the routine of your daily life and work, in the education to hope that you impart to your children, amid your aspirations and anxieties; within the privacy of the home and the deafening noise of our streets. It is there, along the dusty paths of history, that the Lord comes to meet each of you. read more

THE ONE TRUE FAITH REVISITED: EAT MY FLESH

THE ONE TRUE FAITH REVISITED: EAT MY FLESH

Belief in Holy Communion is a universal deal breaker for Protestants as it was for Jews when they heard Our Lord directly teaching them on the Eucharist.

John 6:53, 67 recounts, “The Jews on that account argued with one another, saying, ‘How can this man give us His flesh to eat?’ … From this time, many of his disciples turned back and no longer went about with Him.”

Father John Hardon affirms that rejection of the Eucharist is one thing that unites all Protestants. “Of all the definitions that anyone could come up with for Protestantism, that one is the most accurate: those self-professed Christians who reject the Real Presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.” read more
