Silence before the Mystery

Today, is the day which "expresses the unparralleled experience of our age, anticipating the fact that God is simply absent, that the grave hides him, that he no longer awakes, no longer speaks, so that one no longer needs to gainsay him but can simply overlook him ... " (B16) Today, Christians are silent in their recollection of the Passion of the Christ. But for our culture, today is another day without God. As B16 has indicated, today is an unparralleled day in which Christian and secular culture seem to coincide: God is dead.
As we have been entering into the Liturgical commemoration of the Passion, a strange parody of this Mystery has been made available by the secularists. BBC's "Passion" documentary drama, put together by producer Nigel Stafford-Clark and writer Frank Deasy, is the secular culture's reaction to the Gospel. Perhaps you may wish to write to the BBC and challenge it and these two men over their work, but do not forget that we live in a moronic culture in a moronic age, in which the secular media is trapped. However, the power of the Gospel remains undimmed to those who seek.
