My Reflection for March 29, Good Friday: John 18:1-19:42

My Reflection:
Why did Jesus die on the cross? It was in loving obedience to the will of the Father. It was also out of His immense love for us, Jesus willfully died on the cross so that we may live and have life.   

We ask ourselves this question: What have we done in return to give back and to gratefully acknowledge this self-emptying of Jesus on the cross? Have we lived and shared His teachings? Have we also willfully carried or helped carry the cross of others to lighten their burdens? Have we become another Christ for our fellowmen?

The cross is a sign of contradiction because it is a sign of sacrifice but at the same time it is also a sign of salvation and enlightenment. Let us not be afraid to carry our own cross even if it seems that we would be burdened by it. Let us not be afraid to lighten the cross of our fellowmen also because there will come a time that we will harvest something worthy from that cross.

As Jesus learned to love the cross for our sake, let us also learn to embrace and love our cross no matter how hard and difficult it may seem. For on that cross lies our salvation and redemption. …
