"It is finished!"

What is finished? The Father’s plan for our salvation has been completed. The sin of Adam and Eve has been addressed, fulfilling the word of God that said to the serpent: I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel.” (Gen 3:15)  God’s promise in Eden is precisely what happened at the cross. In Christ’s death, he breaks the devil’s power: We read in Colossians: “Having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross” (Colossians 2:15). 

In the words of Pope John Paul II: Salvation has taken place; “that with his sacrifice Jesus has transformed the greatest injustice into the greatest love.”

Jesus, not only takes away our sins, but now He removes it as far as the east is from the west. It is finished, done, signed, and sealed because of the blood of Jesus. In his prayer to the Father at the end of the Last Supper, Jesus said: “I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do.” (Jn 17:4)
