WEDNESDAY OF PASSION WEEK …

PRESERVING TO THE END MOTIVATED BY THE LOVE OF CHRIST

“I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord (Philippians 3:8). To know Christ!  On this last stage of our Lenten journey we are encouraged even more by the liturgy to deepen our knowledge of Jesus, to contemplate his suffering and merciful face, and to prepare ourselves to experience the splendour of his resurrection.  We cannot remain on the surface.  We must have a deep, personal experience of the richness of Christ’s love.  Only in this way, as the Apostle says,  can we know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that if possible (we) may attain the resurrection from the dead (Philippians 3:10)
