    Not just Catholics do all this. I am Lutheran, and we do all this.

      Lutherans didn’t always do it. Only Catholics because we used to get ridiculed for doing these things. A woman told me several years ago (at beginning of Lent) she was given in up meat for 40 days. I knew she was Baptist and asked her why, she just said her pastor told the congregation to. She knew Nothing about Lent, Palm Sunday, washing of feet on Holy Thursday or kissing the cross on Good Friday. Of course I’m 73 and grew up before Vatican II and we started saying responses in English rather than Latin, didn’t have to cover our heads In church and going to confession face to face with our pastor (priest). These but a few, but no, everyone has not always honored Lent and Holy Week.

        I’ve never been to a church that does any of this.

    Very nice video! My only objection was using a blond Jesus. Jesus was a Middle Eastern Jew. He was not European, and he was not a blond. Let’s stop forcing a bleached image of Jesus upon the world, please. Otherwise, great job!

      While Jesus lived in Judea, He was also God incarnate. He may have had dark hair OR light hair. Try not to limit Jesus’ qualities by the people he was surrounded by–He never did. ;-)


    I loved the video but, I think you should have taken another minute, and slowed it down. I had to keep stopping and going back just to catch up. GREAT job though, and GOD BLESS!!!!!!!

    I love the Kingdom language right in tandem with the sacramental focus.

    The juxtaposition between the symbols is striking: the flag and the cross represent some very different things.

    MANY thanks for the sound theological approach wrapped in a well executed and intriguing format! I find them especially helpful in Youth Ministry in a parish setting.

    P.S. To Marie-France Respondek March 29th,
    We’re all works in progress. God knows that and loves us right where we are. I’ll keep you in my prayers.

    65 yr old Catholic, married twice divorced twice, annulled twice. I need someone to talk to that maybe has been in my shoes one way or another. I think I’m glad I found this website, we’ll see. I feel likw a Catholic failure! God bless you, MFR

      Forget about being Catholic. Jesus doesn’t care if you are Catholic. All religions were created by men. Jesus is the only way to God, not rituals, not church membership, or traditions. Jesus only cares if you accept Him as Savior and live daily by His teachings. No amount of divorce can keep you from Jesus.

    The Videos are very helpful thank you for taking the time …:))

    God Loves You…For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 As it is written: There is none rightous, no, not one. Romans 3:10 For the wages of sin is death, but the givt of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus or Lord. Romans 6:23 Behold, I stand a the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to hom and dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 For whosoever call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13
    Confess to God that you are a sinner and believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for your sins on the cross and was raised from the dead for your sin. God, do now receive and confess Him as my personal Savior. Amen. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. John 20:31
