One Man’s death

A holy week sharing!!! hope you got some insights!!

Today we remember the death on a cross of the Son of God, the Word made flesh. Today, we celebrate His death because it signifies and is the basis of the forgiveness of our sins. Without the event on Calvary nearly 2,000 years ago, sin and death would still reign supreme in our world, unchecked by the forgiveness of God as manifested in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.

As we gaze upon the crucifix in today’s ceremonies, let us ask ourselves what it means for us. How is my life changed by what Jesus did, and what He continues to do in my life as He offers me the gift of salvation? What is my response to Jesus’ offer of forgiveness for my sins as He hangs on the cross to pay for the price of my disobedience? What am I doing in my life to help share this truth with others? This may sound like a lot of very heavy questions for one day. It will be “par for the course” so to speak, if we regularly reflect upon these questions. Many Christians today leave their Christianity —their living of their faith — to specific times and places. This is wrong. Our faith must permeate our lives in every aspect and at all times. Our lives ought to be a reflection upon questions that have eternal significance far more than they are a living out of those things that are passing away. It is a matter of priorities and we will not get the priorities right unless we reflect often and seriously upon the questions that matter.

The Church’s liturgical calendar highlights various moments of Jesus’ life to remind us to reflect upon certain truths. God invites us to enter more deeply into the mystery of life with Him. Will we accept the invitation, or will we remain at a distance from the one who offers us the gift of salvation?
This Good Friday, let us spend some time reflecting in silence upon the events that mark the coming of our salvation into our lives and the world. Let us give thanks to God for this gift of His love and resolve to live the fruits of this gift all the days of our lives. Fr. Steve Tynan

Reflection Question:
Does my life reflect eternal realities or am I living for things that are passing?

Dear Jesus, I silence myself today. May I hear Your shout of love through the life that You offer for me.

St. Nicholas vin Flue, hermit, pray for us.
