Sin didn't put Jesus on the cross...Love did.
Three points of the Homily:
1. Good Friday is a God event that happens in the Eternal Now.
2. Sin didn't put Jesus on the cross... Love did.
"God demonstrated His own love for us in this while we were still sinners, Christ dies for us." Rom 5:8
3. What is our Response?
a. Gratitude – “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus thank you.”
b. Love - “For me to love You as You love me, I would have to borrow Your own love.” -St. Therese
c. Life of Faith– “I have been crucified with Christ; it is on longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20
Today is Good Friday. It is called "Good" because we see how much Jesus loves all of us, that he was willing to undergo such suffering. What then is our response to that love.?
