Thought of the Day March 27, 2018 Greater Love has no one

By 10:31 AM

"As they were looking on, so we too gaze on his wounds as he hangs. We see his blood as he dies. We see the price offered by the redeemer, touch the scars of his resurrection. He bows his head, as if to kiss you. His heart is made bare open, as it were, in love to you. His arms are extended that he may embrace you. His whole body is displayed for your redemption. Ponder how great these things are. Let all this be rightly weighed in your mind: as he was once fixed to the cross in every part of his body for you, so he may now be fixed in every part of your soul." (St. Augustine) To know that Jesus did all of this for me is beyond understanding. He loved me in spite of my continual sinfulness. He suffered this cruel death freely for me even if I would never turn back to him. How can I be so callous? I accept your love, Jesus. I give you my finite love for your agape love.
