We used to attend a particular church for a good number of years on and off. The priest says a good mass but gradually he veered towards eco liberal thinking. He promoted the church as fighting social problems and less about the salvation of souls. A few years ago at mass a full chalice of […]The Spilled Precious Blood.
Catherine Emmerich: Life Of Jesus Volume 4. The meaning of a ‘Portico’.
Yesterday I bought the fourth volume of the life of Jesus by Catherine Emmerich. It’s very vivid in its description in the days leading up to the paschal gathering and The Passion of Jesus. One word that stuck out was ‘Portico’. Emmerich mentioned that Jesus often preached from within a Portico. Admittedly I did not know what this meant so I looked it up. Portico is a particular type of architecture used in ancient times and is still used today. The inner perimeter of the second temple was lined with Porticos on either side of the Sanctuary.
When one receives a vision you can see things that you find hard to describe. It takes time for the image you see to be unpacked in your mind. Over time knowledge comes that gives the vision more meaning. During lent of 2021 I was given a quick glimpse into the mocking of Jesus. Jesus’s body was weak bloodied and defenceless. Our Lord was held was held aloft in a ‘mock parading of a king’. When a governor or ruler went from place to place he would be held aloft on a royal chair. These roman soldiers were mocking in this way. About five soldiers held Jesus up over their shoulders. They held him up just outside the portico and carried him inside to then throw his body against the wall.
