Letter from Father Richard
What a sobering gospel we have set before us this week. The following of Jesus does not necessarily lead to worldly success. However, it is not as bleak as it sounds in the first place.
You often hear parents wishing they could have suffered in the place of their children. Jesus’s suffering and death is for us; He is taking our place, He is suffering for us, so that we may not suffer the consequence of sin. He does this for us as parents do for their children, out of love.
Love certainly changes things.
Have a good week.
