Christ’s Humility & Greatness
The Challenge & Mystery of the Cross
Dates: March 30 (Good Friday) & March 31 (Holy Saturday)
Time: 10:30 am Offering (Conferences) : Free Will
Good Friday confronts Christians with the challenge of the Cross: an instrument of brutality, torture and death, which Christ faced and assumed for the salvation of the world. Sacred Scripture proclaims: “By His Wounds We Are Healed!” Christ’s crucifixion becomes a mystery to be pondered and prayed over. It was Jesus’ yoke which God the Father laid upon His shoulders: to atone for and take away the sins of the world. Yet Jesus says to His followers: “My Yoke Is Easy And My Burden Is Light”, thereby calling His Church to claim His yoke i.e., to walk in the Master’s footsteps by claiming, accepting and carrying the Cross of Christ–every day, come what may.
It’s a Mystery that entails humble submission to the Lord and the Way of the Lord, in all things and sometimes above all things. Holy Saturday, in this sense, enables Christians to appreciate our fundamental belief, The Paschal Mystery, which is God’s Promise of Redemption/Salvation fulfilled through, with and in the Christ’s Way Of The Cross, always unfolding in history by the fidelity of His Disciples.
