I am convinced that the SDO is a useful, effective, beautiful and powerful educational tool.This is no gimmick – for I speak of what I know and have personally experienced,particularly within the context of my intense and challenging doctoral programme in England. SDO literally helped save my dreams, and enabled me actualise them. SDO works!

Homily from Celebration of the Lord’s Passion, given by Father Cantalamessa

The Gospel reading we have just listened to is the account of the objectively greatest evil committed on earth. We can look at it from two different angles: either from the front or from the back, that is, either from its causes or from its effects. If we stop at the historical causes of Christ’s death, we get confused and everyone will be tempted to say, as Pilate did, “I am innocent of this man’s blood” (Mt 27:24).
