We pray for the living and deceased members of our armed forces:
The final act in the drama of Jesus has come. The Son of Man must suffer many things. In his account of the Passion, Mark stresses the crude trial and shocking details of Jesus’ suffering. He has Jesus die in total isolation – deserted by his disciples, taunted by his enemies, derided by those who hung with him, and, worst of all, abandoned by God.
The rendering of the curtain of the temple signifies that the privilege of Israel has ended; henceforth access to the divine presence is open to all. The reply to the question which has dominated Mark’s Gospel (Who then, is this?) is found in the words of the centurion: ‘Truly, this man was the Son of God.’
ABCD-The 2015 Archbishop's Charities and Development Drive

Thank you to everyone who has made a sacrificial pledge/donation for the charitable and religious ministries and services of the Archdiocese of Miami.
