“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola


We give below videos of two modern musicial compositions inspired by the events of the Passion - the Pieta, the deposition of our Blessed Lord from the Cross; and the Entombment of Christ.  These are written and performed by a young composer in Norway, Rolando Gonzalez. They may be beneficial as meditations to prayer for Holy Week, perhaps in conjunction with sacred Silence during private meditation on the Stations of the Cross.

The composer has added the visual image of painting, the second video being the Entombment of Christ by our fellow knight of Malta Carravaggio, whose work is such a powerful aid to devotion.

A very Blessed Holy Week to all our readers.
