My Reflection for April 18, Good Friday (Fasting and Abstinence) John 18:1-19:42

Reflection:
Are you afraid to carry the cross of Jesus? You’re not alone, I too is afraid to carry the cross of Christ and perhaps all of us are afraid to carry it. Who would want to carry heavy burdens such as incurable sickness? Who would want to have difficult problems in life? Who would want to be persecuted, be unfairly judged, spit on and so forth? No one of us wants these many crosses in our life.

But if we are not willing to carry our cross, how will know that there’s salvation in that cross? How would we know that Jesus Himself will help us carry our own cross? 

As much as we are afraid to carry our cross, Jesus is inviting us to wholeheartedly embrace our cross and learn to carry it with acceptance  For there’s salvation in that cross and Jesus Himself is in that cross.

Now, if Jesus is in that cross and if there’s salvation in that same cross. Then, why be afraid to wholeheartedly embrace and carry our own cross?
