MONDAY OF PASSION WEEK …

GOD’S LOVE OUTPOURED ON THE CROSS

The cross on Calvary, the cross upon which Christ conducts his final dialogue with the Father, emerges from the very heart of the love that man, created in the image and likeness of God, has been given as a gift, according to God’s eternal plan.  God, as Christ has revealed Him, does not merely remain closely linked with the world as the Creator and the ultimate source of existence.  He is also Father: He is linked to man, whom He called to existence in the visible world, by a bond still more intimate than that of creation.  It is love which not only creates the good but also grants participation in the very life of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  For he who loves desires to give himself.
Dives In Misericordia (Rich in Mercy) November 30, 1980 by John Paul II
