Christ took on the burdens of all of us. He hung the on the tree, and the weight of our sins pulled him into death.
Christ then showed how the power of God defies worldly wisdom.
In the weakness of death he set all men free.
By ripping open the gates of hell, Jesus brought the gospel to the faithful who died before his word circulated the world. Those who embraced it, I am sure, are now saints in heaven praying for us below.
The words he preached continue today to circulate among us, and possess the power to save us if we surrender our lives to him.
I am working on the complete surrender to Christ’s call…I know it is a lifelong process. I know with each step I take, he will be there with me making my cross lighter. I certainly know that this week he lifted my family up through the power of his love, his church’s sacraments, and words of wisdom. I could not have done it without him.
I hope you too will make the same journey, because God’s love grows with each and every step we take together in his name!
