With you only a little while longer

April 7, 2020 4:00 am

“My children, I will be with you only a little while longer. You will look for me, and as I told the Jews, ‘Where I go you cannot come,’ so now I say it to you.”

Every year we liturgically experience exactly the same—in a moment, “only a little while longer”—Our Lord will die for me, for you, for us. It is a never-ending story. He has been dying for us and for our salvation, because this is the only way, we can go to heaven. Not our prayers, our fasts, achievements or whatever—Our Lord is the only Redemptor and Savior and time of His death is coming. We can’t stop it. But we can enjoy the results for us. Our redemption is coming.

“Hail to you, our King, obedient to the Father; you were led to your crucifixion like a gentle lamb to the slaughter.” (Gospel Acclamation)
