Triumph of the Cross, Gospel Reflection with Fr Bill Grimm, 2014 Sept 14
Posted by Fr Nelson MCBS on September 12, 2014
The triumph of the cross is that, though suffering is always with us and may make us think we are far from God, when we suffer, we share in the life of God. Defeat, then, is victory. The holy Cross triumphs!
Triumph of the Cross
13 No one has gone up to heaven except the one who came down from heaven, the Son of man;
14 as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up
15 so that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.
16 For this is how God loved the world: he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
17 For God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but so that through him the world might be saved.
