My Reflection for Saturday September 14, Exaltation of the Holy Cross, John 3:13-17

Gospel: John 3:13-17
Jesus said to Nicodemus: “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

My Reflection:
Did you ever wonder why the cross in the altar  is always situated higher than anyone else inside the church? Did you ever wonder why many of us take time to look-up to Jesus on the cross?

The cross inside the church is above all for the reason that it’s meant to be looked-up and reverenced by us. For without the cross with Jesus hanging upon it there would have been no salvation for all of us. This is the reason why we deeply respect the cross of Jesus. On the same cross of Jesus, we find healing, we find forgiveness and we freely unburden our heavy loads on that cross of Jesus. 

Sometimes it’s very intimidating to look-up to the cross of Jesus for it literally means hardship and supreme sacrifice. Nevertheless, we have to look-up to that cross because it’s our source of strength and salvation.

If you have a cross right now, close your eyes and say a prayer. Then offer your cross to Jesus and humbly ask Jesus to help you carry it. …
