Statue of Christ Crucified in Cordoba, Spain

Suggested Meditation

Dear TIA,

Since this coming weekend people will be celebrating Carnival all around the world, I have a suggestion that I believe would make reparation to Our Lord for the countless offenses He will be receiving on these days.

You know that the three days of Carnival – feast of the carne (meat) – was first introduced as the 'farewell to meat' because Catholics would be entering the 40 days of Lent and, during this period of penance, nobody was supposed to eat meat. The innocent and legitimate festivities of the little people during these days were transformed, after World War II, into a display of immoral performances, particularly in Brazil and Argentina, dancing to the same music as before. As the time went by, new music and lyrics were introduced to encourage immorality.

The feast of the 'farewell to meat' actually became the exaltation of the flesh, which in Portuguese and Spanish is also translated by the word carne, precisely the same word that signifies meat. We thus see that a complete transformation of that initial festivity took place, applying the second meaning of the same word. The feast of the meat became the feast of the flesh.

So, my suggestion is that we Catholics should neither take part in any of these corrupted festivities nor watch them on television during these days. I also suggest we meditate about the Passion of Our Lord and how much He chose to suffer for us in order to redeem us from our debt of sin.

For this purpose, nothing appears to be more appropriate than to carefully study the photos of the Statue of Christ Crucified that was sculpted in Cordoba, Spain. The artist's aim was to transfer to a sculpture as much as possible the data found on the Shroud of Turin.

I believe that this statue may well be the most objective reproduction of how Our Lord Jesus Christ looked when He was living among men.

If you agree with my suggestion, I ask you to please pass this message on to your readers, asking them to do the same.

I am a close follower of your work, and I agree with your stance on the Revolution and Counter-Revolution in the Church and society, in the steps of Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira.

     United in the Crucified Christ,
