There is no Christian without Jesus
Saturday, 7 September 2013

(continued from Page 2)

There is another group of “Christians without Christ: those who seek out novelties, special things, they seek out private revelations”, though revelation was fulfilled with the New Testament. The Holy Father warned these Christians against the desire to go “to some kind of revelation spectacle, to feel new things. Take up the Bible instead!”.

What then is the rule for being a Christian with Christ? And what is the “sign” that someone is in fact a Christian with Christ? It is simple, the Pope explained: “whatever leads you to Jesus is valid, and only what comes from Jesus is valid. Jesus is the centre”. And the “sign”, he said, is “a man or a woman who adores Jesus is a Christian with Jesus. If you can’t worship Jesus, something is missing”. The rule is to “follow what comes from Jesus and to do what leads to Jesus. The sign is adoration of Jesus, prayer and adoration before Jesus”.

Scala Sancta in Sosnica Wroclaw Area Polish Silesia Poland salvation-inspiration.comThe Scala Sancta in Sosnica, the Silesian copy of Holy Stairs at Rome near the Lateran Basilica, are a set of 28 white marble steps located within the Chapel of St. Hedwig of Silesia (Polish: Swieta Jadwiga Slaska) in the Roman Catholic church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross in Sosnica, Wroclaw Area, Polish Silesia, Poland. The stairs lead to the wooden altar with polichromated  figure of Jesus Christ as Man of Sorrows (Vir dolorum) clothed in red, crowned with thorns. The globe-shaped tabernacle symbolizes Christ's power over the earth. In the altar and at each of Holy Stairs are placed the relics including the ones associated with Jesus. The cult promoted here since 1776 is to honour the redemptive Passion of Christ, this is why the Holy Stairs may only be ascended on the knees; for common use, the staircase is flanked by additional staircase. Father Mieczyslaw Kogut, the parish priest since 1993, was instrumental to revive pilgrim routes to the Holy Stairs in Sosnica.
