Greetings children of the resurrection,
This week, we find ourselves in the Holy Week. Friday, known as "Holy Friday," begins the Easter Triduum. Sunday we will all be celebrating the greatest liturgical Feast of the year, Easter Sunday. This is the day when Catholics, including those who only go to Church once a year, will gather to commemorate the glorious Resurrection of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Praise be His Most Holy Name. "God highly exacted Him and gave Him the name of Jesus so every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." [Phil. 2:9-11]
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Easter and many more for the glory of God. During the 50 days that will follow until Pentecost Sunday, let us all celebrate the gift of our faith.
You may be wondering, "Why has the newsletter been sent early this month?" The reason is because during the past month, I have been receiving emails from around the world, from visitors who have not been able to access upcoming homilies. Whenever they click on the link of the upcoming Sunday homily, they are redirected to the Vatican website.
If you are experiencing this problem, your computer has a virus that was written specifically to attack the homilies section of the website of Catholic Doors Ministry. As a local priest put it yesterday, Satan must be hurting really bad that he had to influence someone to write a virus to stop the spreading of the homilies on the Catholic Doors Ministry website.
More specifically regarding the virus, you must be using Internet Explorer and it has been infected, most likely by an email that you opened from an anonymous sender. I have created a webpage that explains the problem with your computer and how to resolve the problem. You may view the webpage at:
It is hoped by the early release of the newsletter that the visitors of the website will become aware that they can access the Holy Week homilies on the website within minutes. It is a matter of following the instruction for an immediate fix and then fixing the major problem afterwards when time permits.
If anyone knows of a quicker way of fixing the problem, please let me know so I can inform the Catholic Doors Ministry visitors.
I would also like to hear from those who have experienced this problem with the homilies. Please indicate in your email where you live (city and country) so I can see how spread out the problem is.
In the love of Jesus,
Catholic Doors Ministry
