Anyone who looked, he lived

“‘Make a seraph and mount it on a pole, and whoever looks at it after being bitten will live.’ Moses accordingly made a bronze serpent and mounted it on a pole, and whenever anyone who had been bitten by a serpent looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.” (NM 21: 8-9)

We covered the crosses in our churches to prepare ourselves to see again, in a fresh way, the beauty of God’s love revealed on the cross. “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM, and that I do nothing on my own, but I say only what the Father taught me.” The cross helps us to understand how much we are loved, how important we are to God, and the price Our Lord paid to bring us freedom, dignity and the ability to love more and more, like He loves us.

“The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower; all who come to him will live for ever.” (Gospel Acclamation)
