Extrabiblical supposition? Jesus speaks of ‘my wife’

This Sept. 5, 2012 file photo released by Harvard University shows a fragment of papyrus that divinity professor Karen L. King said is the only existing ancient text that quotes Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife. An article published in the Harvard Theological Review on Thursday, April 10, 2014, said new scientific tests suggest the fragment is more likely an ancient document than a forgery. King, an expert in the history of Christianity, said the papyrus probably dates to eighth-century Egypt based on carbon dating tests and tests on the ink’s chemical composition. AP FILE PHOTO

A controversial development points to what could be a missing text of the Holy Gospel, indicating that Jesus may have actually been married—and to someone believed to be named Mary.

Persistence in prayer and deeds lead to good opportunities

By

More than 10 years ago, I met with a Filipino who had grown up abroad, his mother and his uncle, about the young man’s possible entry into Ateneo and be part of the Blue Eagles varsity team in the UAAP. We came to an agreement on how he would prepare for the entrance test and the team tryouts.

Pope Francis, Muslim girl make history

By
In this photo provided by the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Pope Francis washes the foot of an inmate at the juvenile detention center of Casal del Marmo, Rome, Thursday, March 28, 2013. Francis washed the feet of a dozen inmates at a juvenile detention center in a Holy Thursday ritual that he celebrated for years as archbishop and is continuing now that he is pope. Two of the 12 were young women, an unusual choice given that the rite re-enacts Jesus' washing of the feet of his male disciples. The Mass was held in the Casal del Marmo facility in Rome, where 46 young men and women currently are detained. Many of them are Gypsies or North African migrants, and the Vatican said the 12 selected for the rite weren't necessarily Catholic. AP/L'Osservatore Romano, ho

In an unprecedented move, Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 youths, including a Muslim girl, during the Last Supper Mass on Thursday in a correctional for minors in Rome. He was reenacting Jesus Christ’s washing of the feet of his all-male 12 apostles, including Saint Peter, the first Pope.

Palm Sunday: Balancing worship with mystery

By
MOMENTS WITH CHRIST This painting of Jesus Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday is part of Manuel Baldemor’s exhibit at the Atrium of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City, which runs till March 31. It employs a technique that consists of letting the paint drop from the brush as the artist guides it. “In similar fashion, I can give homage and meditate on the drops of blood Christ shed for our sins,” Baldemor says.

The euphoria won’t last. Like the adulation of the crowds during the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the euphoria over the election of Pope Francis might not last once he poses the “unsettling questions” raised against the Church on sexual morality and other “difficult” issues confronting modern society, a Church historian said yesterday.
