Sacred Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday.

As Christians prepare to celebrate Christ's resurrection at Easter, they must first remember His suffering and death. Several liturgies during Holy Week, considered the most important week in the church's liturgical year, provide the opportunity to do so.


Holy Week is the week which precedes the great festival of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday, and which consequently is used to commemorate the Passion of Christ, and the event which immediately led up to it. It is also known as the “week of lamentation’ during the interval between Palm Sunday and Easter Day , and is known par excellence as Holy Week.

Palm Sunday

The sixth and last Sunday of Lent and beginning of Holy Week, a Sunday of the highest rank, not even a commemoration of any kind being permitted in the Mass. In common law it fixes the commencement of Easter duty.

Holy Week, the last week of Lent, includes the religious holidays of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday referred to as the Triduum – the three separate days celebrated as one feast.

Holy Thursday Mass recalls Christ's Last Supper and the institution of the Eucharist. It also includes the washing of the feet ceremony.

On Good Friday, there is no Mass anywhere in the world, and churches are bare. The Stations of the Cross often are prayed that day and liturgies are held to commemorate Christ's Passion.

Jesus offered His life as a sacrifice for the remission of the sins of humankind, choosing the most cruel and humiliating death: crucifixion.

The Holy Father in his general audience this morning (March 31) explained that, “There exists an indissoluble link between the Last Supper and the death of Jesus", explaining how in the Upper Room "Jesus offered His Body and Blood (that is, his earthly existence, Himself), anticipating His own death and transforming it into an act of love. And so death, which by its nature is the end, the destruction of all relations, is made by Him an act of communication of Self, an instrument of salvation and a proclamation of the victory of love".

Holy Saturday is considered a day of silence and prayer. This is the time of expectation and hope, believers are invited to prayer, reflection and conversion, also through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, so that, intimately renewed, they may participate in the celebration of Easter.

No Mass is celebrated until that evening at the Easter Vigil, which takes place after sundown. That silence will be broken by the cry of Alleluia, announcing the resurrection of Christ and proclaims the victory of light over darkness, of life over death. The Church starts its joyous occasion in the meeting with her Lord, entering the day of Easter which the Lord inaugurated by rising from the dead.

It is at that Mass that the church welcomes new Catholics.

Families are encouraged to attend all three liturgies to experience the whole thing like a three-part movie.

Early Skirmishes Of A Malay Civil War

With the kind permission from Dr. M. Bakri Musa the following article, which was originally posted on Sunday, January 17th, 2010 in his website, is hereby published.

By Dr. M. Bakri Musa*

Recent attacks on churches are not a sign of an impending religious war in Malaysia. There is no doubting that in a plural society like ours those incendiary incidents could easily explode out of control. That notwithstanding, these recent ugly acts are merely sub-plots of a much larger and more dangerous drama that is now unfolding, one that is far more consequential and destructive. These are the early skirmishes of an explosive, protracted and very ugly civil war among Malays.

There is a definite pattern between these recent events and earlier ones involving only Malays, specifically the whipping of a young mother for consuming beer and the call for apostasy to be a capital offence. Connect the dots and you have a Malay community in deep conflict.

What struck me most with the recent spate of church arsons were the relatively muted responses from the victims. This reflected not merely a charitable “turning the other cheek” reaction, rather an intuitive realization by non-Muslims that they were not the target but merely innocent victims of a much larger conflict raging under the surface: a vicious Malay civil war. Those poor Christians were caught in a cross-fire in a conflict they did not realize was going on around them.

Contrast the reactions of non-Muslims to those of Malays. No, the Malay vitriol was not directed at non-Muslims rather to fellow Malays. On one side were those who view those attacks as debasing our great faith, and the other, those who consider them as the purest jihad. When commentators use epithets like “idiots,” “racists” and “pengkhianat” (traitors), we know this is a serious matter, beyond the reach of sensible dialogues.

The issue of the use of the word “Allah” is merely a symptom. Today it is over that, yesterday over Ketuanan Melayu versus Ketuanan Rakyat, while much earlier it was the use of English to teach science and mathematics. Tomorrow, God (or Allah) knows what else. Already some of the sultans are weighing in on this Allah issue. Expect another battle soon over the sanctity of the sultan’stitah (command) versus a court decision.

I do not mean to belittle the seriousness of those arson attacks on churches. Indeed it was hard to describe the sinking feeling in the pit of the my stomach as I watched CNN News, and the ticker tape kept blipping the latest newsbreak, “Fourth Church Attacked!” and then, “Fifth Church Arson Attack,” and now the eleventh, and realizing that those were happening not in war-torn Lebanon or strife-ridden Sudan but in our own “Truly Asia” Malaysia.

A more sickening feeling was seeing Home Minister Hishammuddin smugly ‘reassuring’ us that everything was ‘under control.’ That was after the third or fourth arson attack. He could hardly refrain from patting himself on the back for (presumably) a job well done. His “government’s commitment to maintain peace” had averted a major religious catastrophe, he asserted. Obviously to him, the damage wrecked was only the burnt buildings and scorched church doors.

Somebody ought to tell Hishammuddin to wipe the grin off his face, and make him realize that the enormous damage wrecked upon the nation went well beyond the physical defacements of those churches. Those can be readily fixed, with or without government grants. With simple technologies like surveillance cameras, those attacks could also be prevented.

Hishammuddin could not see beyond his broad nose the inevitable enormous economic fallouts, as in scaring away potential tourists and investors. Even a taxi driver realized that, but not Hishammuddin. If he cannot make that connection, I have little faith in his assurance of “everything under control.”

Deeply Polarized Malay Society

Bluntly put, what we are witnessing today are the external manifestations of a deeply divided and conflicted Malay society. This divide is already irreversible and unbridgeable; meaning, expect continuing turmoil with increasingly ugly and brutal skirmishes.

Civil wars are always much more brutal and difficult to resolve. Look at Indonesia. The Aceh insurrection, pitting essentially ethnic Malays against fellow ethnic Malays who are also Muslims, was more protracted, more vicious, and more difficult to resolve then the Irian Jaya conflict of the 1960s and 70s, or the anti-Chinese pogroms of the 1950s. The scars of those later conflicts, which began way after the Aceh rebellion, have all healed, but the wounds of Aceh are still raw, ready to flare up at any moment.

I do not anticipate Malaysia having another May 1969 race riot. Malaysians have come a long away since those dark days. Non-Malays in particular realized that the constraints of the NEP notwithstanding, they could still thrive in Malaysia. There are enough examples of successes to discredit those who would assert otherwise.

For Malays, gone too were the days when we would meekly and almost as a reflex follow our leaders or their dictates. When they tell us that the Christians have nefarious motive in using the word “Allah,” we scoffed at our leaders. Our leaders – hereditary, political, religious, and others – face unprecedented cynicism and scrutiny, and rightly so especially after they have failed us all these years.

What Malaysia faces today is an entirely new and novel challenge: conflict among Malays. We have never experienced that. We are used to considering ‘outsiders’ as enemies, beginning with the colonialists and later the ‘pendatangs’ (newcomers). We therefore cannot fathom much less anticipate this new ‘internal’ danger; it has yet to enter our collective consciousness. This lapse is most noticeable among our leaders; hence their continuing to egg on their followers, oblivious of the dangers.

Malay leaders have also failed to prepare us for the modern age. Instead of acknowledging and learning from their mistakes, these leaders resort to the oldest tricks, of creating phantom external enemies. Today the new enemies are those who would infringe upon our faith, or so our leaders would like us to believe.

There are still sufficient numbers of Malays who believe in rallying around their leaders especially during times of crisis, real or manufactured, the old circling-of-the-wagon instinct. These leaders, specifically in UMNO, are bankrupt of ideas on how to improve our lot. These manufactured enemies help divert our anger away from these leaders, so they hope. Their frequent and misplaced calls for Malay ‘unity’ are also part of this strategy.

As a society we have not learned to disagree agreeably. Again this is the deficiency of our leaders for they too have not demonstrated the ability to disagree among themselves civilly. The Mahathir-Anwar disagreement for example, nearly ripped our society apart, and we have yet to recover from that.

Our leaders lack the intellectual capacity or leadership qualities needed to solve the myriad problems facing our people, from the lack of jobs to rampant crimes, from our failing schools to corrupt institutions. About the only activity they are capable of is to engage in such puerile activities as worrying how the Christians address God.

There is not much that we can do about these leaders; they will continue their ineffective and destructive strategies until they are relieved of their leadership positions. In a democracy, that power resides only with the people. Thus the more we can let our people see through the hollowness of these leaders, and the hoax they are attempting to perpetrate upon us, the faster will these leaders reach their day of reckoning.

In these days of Internet, twitters, blogs and cell phones, the avenues for reaching and educating our people on the emptiness of our leaders are limitless. Thus it behooves us to enlighten our people, and we do this one person at a time. We need not convert everyone, only a sufficient critical mass. Once we reach that, the momentum will carry us through.

Only by getting rid of these incompetent and useless leaders could we ever hope of finding more enlightened ones who could diligently work through our many problems. This is the only route. The alternative would lead us to a civil war and a path of continued destruction.

Lawyer: Pope gunman wants to visit Fatima shrine

A lawyer says the Turkish man (Mehmet Ali Agca who called himself as the “Messiah”) who shot Pope John Paul II in St. Peter's Square on May 13, 1981, wants to attend annual ceremonies at Portugal's Fatima shrine, which Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to attend.

Lawyer Hacı Ali Özhan says he has written to Portuguese leaders seeking permission for Mehmet Ali Ağca to travel there for the May 13 event.

Ağca, who was released from prison in January after completing a sentence for the 1979 killing of a journalist, has also said he wishes to visit the Vatican and pray at the tomb of the man he once tried to kill.

Three shepherd children claimed in 1917 to have seen the Virgin Mary in Fatima and that she made predictions.

Church officials said in 2000 that she foretold the assassination attempt.

Good Catholics Should Not be Masons

Freemasonry and Christianity are incompatible. The Holy See in 1983 reiterated the traditional position that Catholics who are Freemasons are in a state of grave sin and may not receive the sacraments - the Declaration on Masonic Associations was signed by the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and makes it clear that local bishops cannot dispense from its provisions.

The overriding problem is that in spite of what Freemasons claim, their way of life is a religion, with all of religion's hallmarks. You can no more be a Freemason and a Christian than you can be a Muslim and a Christian. Catholics are committed to inter-faith dialogue and mutual respect, but this requires Freemasons to be honest about what they are. For Catholics, thinking about the reasons for the gulf between us can deepen our understanding of the Christian faith.

Fr Beck is assistant priest of Beckenham in south London and author of Freemasonry and the Christian Faith, published in 2005 by the Catholic Truth Society.

Source: Catholic Online

Reproduced hereunder is the most recent decree from the Vatican on the subject of Freemasonry.

It has been asked whether there has been any change in the Church's decision in regard to Masonic associations since the new Code of Canon Law does not mention them expressly, unlike the previous Code.

This Sacred Congregation is in a position to reply that this circumstance is due to an editorial criterion which was followed also in the case of other associations likewise unmentioned inasmuch as they are contained in wider categories.

Therefore the Church's negative judgment in regard to Masonic associations remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion.

It is not within the competence of local ecclesiastical authorities to give a judgment on the nature of Masonic associations which would imply a derogation from what has been decided above, and this in line with the Declaration of this Sacred Congregation issued on 17 February 1981 (cf. AAS 73 [1981] pp. 240-241).

In an audience granted to the undersigned Cardinal Prefect, the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II approved and ordered the publication of this Declaration which had been decided in an ordinary meeting of this Sacred Congregation.

Rome, from the Office of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, 26 November 1983.”

LINUNDUS comments ...

The book written by Fr Beck is a very important topic for all, especially those Christians who are still members of Freemasons movement, to be conscious of, that as Christians and Catholics, should not be a Mason for any reason. We cannot serve two masters at the same time.

SESB maintains coal stand

Kalabakan MP Datuk Abdul Ghapur Salleh

Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) reiterated its stand, Saturday (DE Mar 21,2010), that there is no alternative to coal that is most viable for generating power in the east coast in terms of both reliability and security.

Despite the many environmental problems known to accompany coal power, the coal plant is being pushed by both the federal Tenaga Nasional Berhad and the state energy company, Sabah Electricity Sdn. Bhd.

At Copenhagen last December, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, pledged a 40 percent cut in carbon dioxide intensity by 2020. By moving forward on coal energy, Malaysia would make meeting this goal even more difficult, since coal is the most carbon intensive of the fossil fuels.

Professor Daniel Kammen, director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL) at the University of California, Berkeley shows that pollution-intensive coal doesn't have to be in Sabah's future. Read “Borneo Can Say “No” to Coal Power.”

Meanwhile, Kalabakan MP Datuk Abdul Ghapur Salleh said that Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd should abandoned its plans for a 300MW coal plant and instead look at the potential of green energy from abundant supply of oil palm biomass.

He said the SESB insistence of going ahead with a coal-fired power plant was completely wrong as coal usage was outdated, an environmental problem and the fuel had to be imported.

“It is not a security. How reliable is the coal supply especially we have to import its fuel and what happens if countries like Indonesia stop such exports?” said the outspoken MP whose Tawau constituency has been in hit by frequent power failures.

He said it was also uneconomical in the long run to use coal as a source of energy and such fuel was not friendly to Sabah’s fragile eco environment.

Ghapur said that enough studies had been done by experts to confirm that biomass was a sufficient resource in Sabah to provide green energy and could reduce production cost to RM0.20 per unit.

Furthermore, the Plantation Industries and Commodities Ministry had also confirmed the abundance of about 8 million tones of Biomass from 160 palm oil mills.

Da Vinci code: Doomsday in 4006

Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci predicted that the world would end in 4006, a Vatican researcher has claimed.

According to Sabrina Sforza Galitzia, da Vinci foresaw the end of the world in a "universal flood" which would begin on March 21, 4006 and end on November 1, 4006.

Leonardo da Vinci predicted that the world would end in 4006

"He believed that this would mark a new start for humanity," she said.

The Vatican researcher came to the conclusion by deciphering the clues which are available in da Vinci’s ‘Last Supper’ mural - the lunette above his painting of Jesus Christ with his disciples before crucifixion.

“There is a da Vinci code - it is just not the one made popular by Dan Brown,” said Galitzia, who studied da Vinci manuscripts as a researcher at California University in Los Angeles and now works in the Vatican archives.

Last year, the Vatican published her study ‘The Last Supper of Leonardo in the Vatican’, in which she examined a tapestry of the Last Supper made for King Louis XIII of France, based on da Vinci’s design for his famous mural.

Galitzia said she was working on a sequel which would explain da Vinci’s hidden “code”, involving signs of the zodiac and his use of the 24 letters of the Latin alphabet to represent the 24 hours of the day.

Da Vinci had seen the story of humanity as leading to "the sum of all things, the final reckoning" described in the Book of Revelations but also by ancient writers such as Plato and Aristotle, the Times quoted Galitzia as saying.

He had been a scientist and man of faith who had lived in "difficult times" and had hidden his messages "so as not to be attacked", she said. Da Vinci began working on the Last Supper in 1495 and finished it in 1498.

It was restored between 1978 and 1999 after it had badly deteriorated. - PTI

Nostradamus Predictions

Is the End of the World for December 2012?

This topic is making a buzz on internet right now: is december 2012 the date of the apocalypse? Are we already doomed and will a giant comet strike planet earth?

Many predictions from all over the world and ages tend to agree on one point: the world should change within the next few years. Some believe it will be a dramatic event and they call it doomsday. Some prefer to believe in an era change, with planet earthsurviving.

I'm making this lense to explore the passionnating subject of 2012's predictions. From Mayas to Nostradamus and from mythology to science, I will try to be as complete as possible to make sure you won't miss anything about the "2012 apocalypse".

The Prophecy of the Mayan Calendar

First, we need to say a few words about the people that lived in Central America until the Spanish conquests. Apart from Aztecs, the mayan civilization represents an important period of the Mexican history. Located in the Yucatan province, Mayas had powerful shamans who were studying the cycles of the universe. They believed an accurate observation of the stars and planets would allow them to predict the future. Actually, they did! Long before these events happened, Mayan shamans foresaw Christopher Colombus' arrival and the end of their civilization.

Another prediction made by the shamans directly concerns us, today. They believed that an important event would happen in 2012, precisely on December 21st.

This prediction would have no importance if it wasn't confirmed by science. Thanks to technology and complex calculations made by advanced computers, astronomers confirm what Mayan shamans felt, giving credit to their prediction.

We know today that on 21 December 2012, planet Earth and the Sun will be exactly aligned with the center of the galaxy, the Milky Way. Scientists are not sure, yet they think this could cause magnetic turbulences. Concretely, this possibly means the happening of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and such. Actually, that's exactly what Mayan shamans prophesied.


The end of the world is the time when we leave this earthly world for eternal life to come … either in HELL or in Heaven. We are the architects of our own eternal life. So, let us design our earthly lives to suit where we go after the end of the world.

Anwar: Racism, not Christians, is the threat

Anwar (left) greets a participant at his talk in London yesterday. — Picture by Danny Lim

By Shannon Teoh (Malaysian Insider)

LONDON, March 19 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has slammed as “ridiculous” the idea that Muslims in Malaysia were under threat from Christians, and instead accused Umno of sanctioning racism.

“In this Allah issue, the idea that Muslims are under threat from Christians is ridiculous to say the least,” he said at a press conference, after his talk at the London School of Economics here yesterday.

“They are playing with fire,” he said and added that the prime minister’s 1 Malaysia slogan, based on a united Malaysia, was not consistent with what was happening on the ground.

“Malaysia is not a Muslim state, or... well, I’m not sure now,” he joked. “But it is not secular either because there is not a total separation of religion and state.”

He explained that while countries like the United States are seen as secular, they were in fact built on religious principles.

Earlier in his talk, which saw hundreds being turned away, he accused Umno of simply feigning interest in Islamic values.

“What Umno has done is not about Islamic issues at all. If you find a committed Muslim, you can argue with him, but in Umno, they don’t even want to understand what Islam is about.

“It is just political expediency and a crude blend of politics. It is distasteful, the way they abuse the Chinese,” he added, in seeming reference to a recent racist statement by Datuk Nasir Safar, made when he was still an aide to the prime minister.

“There should be freedom not just for an ex-deputy prime minister,” he said in reference to the overturning of his sodomy conviction in 2004, “but all Malaysians.”

Anwar went on to explain that the basic issue was one of governance, and added that the strength of Islam in South East Asia was in its inclusivity and moderate position, which took into consideration the interests of other religions.

“The moment Syariah courts can compel non-Muslims, it transgresses fundamentals of the Constitution. It becomes contentious when you deny the rights of non-Muslims or use obscure Syariah interpretation to impose on non-Muslims.

“We need to educate Umno leaders,” said the former deputy president of the Malay party, drawing laughs from the 400-strong audience of mostly Malaysian students at the talk.

Comments by Dayak Sarawak, March 20, 2010

@yearofsnake One cannot be converted to Christianity. One, on his or her own conscience and FREE WILL choose to become a Christian. "Conversion ceremony" is not enough or necessary. Even though many Christians are born into Christian families, they need to affirm their faith on their own FREE WILL.

Other Christians are supposed to show good examples and live respectable lives that others may turn to God.

St. Matthew advised, "Let your good works so shine before men that they may see and glorify your Father who is in heaven". This makes life for a Christian very challenging. Christians are supposed to turn the other cheek when provoked with violence. Also a man who says he loves God but hates his brother is a liar as how could he love God that he has not seen but hates his brother that he has seen. In some way, we can view Christianity as about self-regulation for good. As such it has to be self-conversion.

Now if the Muslim Malays are turning away from Islam due to the wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony of UMNO; hardly "Good Light" KPI. Who is to be blamed? Certainly not the Christians.

So I agree with Saudara Anwar.

Sabah could have been far better if …

The following is an open Letter to Alfred Jabu Anak Numpang, Deputy Chief Minister of Sarawak on the rights of Sabah & Sarawak written by Daniel John Jambun reproduced from the e-mail I received.

"We want to call on Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Alfred Jabu Anak Numpang to prove that he's a 'somebody' as he implies by briefing the people on his track record in defending the rights of Sabah & Sarawak under the 1963 Malaysia Agreement.

We challenge Jabu to an open debate on the issues raised by Cigma during the briefing to members of the House of Commons in London on Mar 9.

Jabu is turning a blind eye to the serious plight of Malaysians in Sabah.

Or, is it more likely that he is actually ignorant about the horrendous problems faced by Sabahans, for example, because he had not been to Sabah often enough.

Cigma’s memorandum titled “Shattered Hopes and Broken Dreams” detailed Sabah’s expectations upon independence as was promised by Tunku Abdul Rahman and under the Malaysia Agreement, the Intergovernmental Committee Report and the 20 Points, the issue of state security and threats to national sovereignty through ‘reverse takeover’ arising from the influx of illegal immigrants, poverty, unfair sharing of oil revenue, lack of fair benefits from land alienation to Felda and Felcra, and other socio-economic problems as a result of the unjust distribution of wealth and opportunities for Sabah from the national economic cake.

Over the past 50 years, “various modifications and adjustments” to the M’sia Agreement have eroded the rights and privileges of Sabahans. Forty-six years after independence, Sabah is now the poorest state despite its abundant natural resources.

Whatever good we had received from Malaysia, is all totally negated by the fact that we are not secure as a state, and that the federal government had reaped a huge economic harvest from Sabah and returned so little to us.

Since the takeover of Umno/BN in Sabah in 1994, Sabah had been plundered to the point of becoming the poorest state in Malaysia. We are in such dire straits with a very uncertain future, so what is the point of praising the government?

Jabu surely knows that Sarawak had no better deal in Malaysia than Sabah.

He must not think Sabah is in the same position as Sarawak which still has some of its original rights intact.

Even Umno daren’t enter Sarawak. But we in Sabah are in a much more different situation. We are under a state government which is under the directive of Kuala Lumpur.

Brunei which opted out of Malaysia, and Singapore which later left the federation, are in a much better economic position regionally and globally. In fact, with all the rich natural resources that we have, Sabah should be richer than Brunei.

We reiterate that we are ready for an open debate on these issues with Jabu anytime at any venue of Jabu’s choice. Let the people judge who is a "nobody in his own country."

At the moment, the consensus of public opinion is that Jabu is a proxy & stooge of the ruling elite in Kuala Lumpur & hence a traitor to our people.

There is nothing wrong in Cigma (Common Interest Group M'sia) calling for the re-activation of the Inter-Governmental Committee on the M'sia Agreement. The IGC was meant to be a permanent institution to monitor the M'sia Agreement.

Jabu must explain why the IGC has fallen into inactivity & disuse over the years.

We call upon the M’sian Federal Gov't and the gov'ts of Sabah, S'wak, S'pore & the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland to return to the IGC as soon as possible, failing which we will relentlessly pursue the matter further in various international forums.

We appeal that the gov'ts of Indonesia & the Philippines be accorded observer status at the IGC.

The presence of Indonesia will ensure that the re-colonisation of Sabah & S'wak by Malaya, after the departure of the British, is reversed. The late President Sukarno of Indonesia did warn against re-colonisation when he launched his policy of konfrantasi (confrontation) & ganjang M'sia (hang M'sia) in 1963.

The presence of the Philippines will ensure that we can bring the so-called Sabah claim to a closure.

Following the successful briefing at the House of Commons in London on Mar 9, we intend to pursue the introduction of an EDM (Early Day Motion) on the M'sia Agreement in the British Parliament as soon as the forthcoming UK General Elections are over.
