Holy Week Reflection

The cross cannot be avoided by any of us, and we shouldn’t seek

to flee from it. Rather, we should learn from it. Wherever we

encounter the cross, we discover the “good things” God wants us

to request from him. Our Lord promises us that the Father will

answer us and give us all that we truly need.

It may require great faith to see the “good” in the things that

come our way. The challenge of the cross is to perceive the good

even when it causes us discomfort or humiliation. The cross of

Jesus did not seem like a “good” thing to those who witnessed

the crucifixion. For the followers of Christ, however, the cross is

the sign of our salvation; we commemorate “Good Friday” every

year because of the great love it represents
