Commemoration of the Passion of Christ

Today is the Tuesday after Sexagesima. Prior to the 1960 reform of the Calendar it was the Feast of the Commemoration of Our Lord's Passion. Its history from Wikipedia.

Last Tuesday, which I missed, was Feast of The Prayer of Christ, commemorating his Prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane.  Its background from A Catholic Life.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
