Thought of the Day April 10, 2019 Resurrection thru the cross

By 11:02 AM

"There is no evil to be faced that Christ does not face with us. There is no enemy that Christ has not already conquered. There is no cross to bear that Christ has not already borne for us, and does not now bear with us. And on the far side of every cross we find the newness of life in the Holy Spirit, that new life which will reach its fulfillment in the resurrection. This is our faith. This is our witness before the world." – St. John Paul II

It is not only the cross that is our focus but the resurrection. As we are called to embrace our crosses in union with Jesus' passion and death, so we are invited to experience the new life that follows the cross, his resurrected life. As Paul tells us, we can't experience Jesus' new life without going to and through the cross. Only our faith assures of us that words and example of Christ are true. Look to the cross but  look also to the life that follows.
