His life for ours

“…a sign that is opposed…” (Lk 2:34)

Good News. The most expected message: “a light of revelation for the gentiles and glory for your people Israel” (Lk 2:32). Good News has also a wonderful content: “the blind see again, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life and the good news is proclaimed to the poor” (Mk 11:5).

And yet, He is opposed. Even more – rejected and killed. Good News IS the Good News not because we deserve it, but because we need it. It is an initiative of God, not ours.

Rejected Jesus Christ loves us. And He has given His life for our life.

“Your merciful love, O God, we have received in the midst of your temple. Your praise, O God, like your name, reaches the end of the earth, your right hand is filled with saving justice”. (Cf. Ps 48 (47):10-11).
