Good Friday

But he was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the punishment that made us whole, and by his bruises we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

Jesus suffered deeply for our transgressions. Since the beginning of man, our sins have marred us. Jesus came to free us, yet for the next 2000 years, we have shown that we are free, we have followed, but we continue to sin. Today, we are recalling the Passion of our Lord, who underwent such torture, so we would not know it ourselves. I am grateful that we are freed from this, yet my heart hurts for what He did for us. Do we cry rivers of tears for what he has gone through for us? Do we change, so his way will not be so painful. Do we even understand the importance of his Death? The significance. He would die for each one of us, and for many it is so very difficult to believe this, yet it is true. He would die for us, again and again until we finally got it. Glory to God

A meditation:

Since one drop of Jesus' Precious Blood would have been more than sufficient to redeem the entire world and all men and women throughout all of human history, why then did He shed so much of His Blood?

Sacred Scripture tells us that God is love. Not that He loves, but that He IS love.

Our intellect will never be able to comprehend the extent of His Love. Not even in eternity. Never will our understanding of Divine Love be complete. Never will this mystery be exhausted.


God love you,

Your right, God is Love, that is why His love is unconditional, eternal, endless, perfect in all the ways of Divine. That is why we know how to love, He is the first to have given it to us. He love us.
