My reflection today is from Living Faith:
But he was pierced for our offenses, crushed for our sins.… We had all gone astray like sheep, each following his own way. Isaiah 53 5-6
We had, indeed, all gone astray, each following our own way. I, with my temptations and sins, and you with yours. But during these past few weeks, we have tried something different. Joined by prayer, fasting and almsgiving, we’ve followed, not our own way but his way. Together.
And so here we are, indeed together on this day we so strangely call ‘good.’ Alone no more, we look up, we listen, we ponder in great silence – the silence of our hearts, the silence of the universe. We’ve put aside our own way and followed his, and here, at the foot of the cross, we find that goodness. For in following his way, not our own, we have found what we were all seeking all along: love.
We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you, for by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.” – Amy Welborn
