Tuesday of Holy Week


Almighty and Everlasting God, grant us grace so to contemplate the Passion of our Lord, that we may find therein forgiveness for our sins; through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Ghost, ever One God, world without end. Amen.

Passion means suffering.

I do not understand how some can look upon Christ on cross as something they earned by their good behavior (choosing to believe) rather than their bad condition - being born a sinner. Did He redeem you because you let Him? Or did He redeem you because He chose to? When you believe redemption is entirely the work of Christ Jesus it is much more humbling and you are more likely to see an ongoing need for forgiveness because there is an ongoing need for the Savior.

Deep thoughts on a Tuesday afternoon.
