“Jesus knew that his hour had come”. He did not shrink away from what was about to happen. “He loved his own in the world and he loved them to the end”.
Take time today and the days leading to Easter to meditate about what Jesus went through for us. Read through the Gospels, put yourself into the story and then think about the different roles written down and ask yourself which role would you have been; the scoffers, those that ran away, Mary his mother, John the disciple both who stood by Jesus at the foot of the cross?
Jesus teaches us and shows us what true love is. To do something for someone without expecting anything in return. To trust in God’s will even when it is physically and mentally difficult. Wow, there is so much to learn.
Take time to visit a Church. Go inside and sit in front of the Tabernacle. Gaze upon Jesus on the cross. Don’t ask for anything, just be with Jesus and let the Passion become real to you. Lose yourself in the heart of Jesus.
