Thought of the Day April 3, 2018 Love conquers

By 9:28 AM

“The Cross had asked the questions; the Resurrection had answered them...The Cross had asked: ‘Why does God permit evil and sin to nail Justice to a tree?"’ The Resurrection answered: ‘That sin, having done its worst, might exhaust itself and this be overcome by Love that is stronger than either sin or death.’” (Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Lent and Easter Wisdom, 110) St. Paul stated it thus: “Do not allow evil to prevail, instead prevail over evil by means of goodness.” (Roms 12:21) Evil may have its time, but love, goodness and truth will be ultimately victorious. That is the revealed mystery of the cross and resurrection. Again listen to St Paul: “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?….But thanks be to God, who has given us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1Cor 15:55,57) As long as sin is committed, evil will exist. But sin and evil do not have the last word. Love does and will. That is the definitive sign of the cross and resurrection.
