Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

The Poisonous Christ

The Poisonous Christ

This Christ figure is located at the Cathedral  of Mexico City.  The Legend is that in the 1500s a very pious gentlemen would  attend mass daily and than he would kiss the feet of Christ on this cross. Another man who was very jealous of this man, decided to kill the pious gentlemen. He notice that this pious gentlemen would kiss the feet of Christ and one day decided to place poison on Christ's feet so that the pious gentlemen would kiss as always and than died of that poison. 
However, he underestimated  the power of Christ, for the Christ on this cross absorbed the poison and turn black as you see it now.

You see, that is what Christ does with our sweet Mother Church. He absorbs the poison, especially inside the church so that He can save His pious faithful servants. 

We are sadden with the news of our Sweet Pope leaving us but we should have only hope that Christ is with us now and will absorb it all for His faithful servants until the end of times.

"And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it"
Matthew 16:18

Please  comment to pray and fast for Our Sweet Church, Her faithful servant Pope Benedict and Our Future Pope.
