Father Matthias quotes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, showing that while in today's Gospel, we see the Pharisees seeking to kill Jesus, the real blame for His death falls not on the Jews, but upon you and me, and He did it out of love for us. However, a True Devotion to Mary is opposed to sin, so let us cultivate a devotion to Her so that She may expunge sin from our lives, for as the liturgy quotes the book of Sirach in relation to Our Lady, "They that work by me, shall not sin." Quoted text from CCC 598: We must regard as guilty all those who continue to relapse into their sins. Since our sins made the Lord Christ suffer the torment of the cross, those who plunge themselves into disorders and crimes crucify the Son of God anew in their hearts (for he is in them) and hold him up to contempt. And it can be seen that our crime in this case is greater in us than in the Jews. As for them, according to the witness of the Apostle, "None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." We, however, profess to know him. And when we deny him by our deeds, we in some way seem to lay violent hands on him. (Roman Catechism I, 5, 11; cf. Heb 6:6; 1 Cor 2:8) Ave Maria!
