Way of the Cross - 2. Jesus takes up his cross.

 

 

2. Jesus takes up his cross.

 

 

 

 

 

  

To Pilate’s statement

‘I have power over you’, Jesus’ quietly responds:

‘you have no power over me.

Can we begin to understand this proclamation -

‘You have no power over me’?

Through this statement Jesus reinforces the unimaginable.

His unconditional love for me states:

I freely embrace this enforced cross,

not only the one of wood,

but your cross too and that of the world.

Hear me: I not only carry the cross,

I embrace it and all it stands for -

all the pain, the sin and the darkness of evil

that you may know deeply

my liberating peace;

my true freedom

my joy of living, the fruit of Eternal Life

flowing from my love, .........flowing from your love.
