Plotting against Jesus
As we stand on the eve of Holy Week, we are invited to enter into the mystery of the cross. It is not possible to escape the difficult reality that God's beloved Son was delivered up to the most brutal, cruel and torturous method of capital punishment known to mankind. The only way the human race could be saved was by Jesus embracing the cross. Flesh and blood alone cannot penetrate this mystery – we need a revelation of the Holy Spirit.
"The world is full of mysteries: heaven is all mystery to us earthly creatures. But whoever embraces the cross with open heart finds there the explanation of a thousand mysteries." (Archbishop William Ullathorne).
