Death and Life

Good Friday

 "Everyone who looks for salvation, not only the Christian, must stop before the cross of Christ....God has embraced all men by the Cross and Resurrection of his Son....
The Paschal Mystery is now grafted onto the history of humanity, onto the history of every individual."--Blessed John Paul II, Crossing the Threshold of Hope.

Way of the Cross

"The life of men is a pilgrimage, continual, long and wearisome. Up and up along the steep and stony road, the road marked out for all upon that hill ...Every one of us must have his own cross to bear; otherwise tempted by selfishness or cruelty, we should sooner or later fall by the roadside....We pray for strength for all....We pray that the Blood of Christ may be to all the pledge and promise of eternal life." --From a meditation on the Fourth Sorrowful Mystery by Blessed John XXIII.

Out of Love for Man

"Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing"--Luke 4:21
"People today need to turn to Christ once again in order to receive from him the answer to their questions...It is he who opens up to the faithful the book of the Scriptures and, by fully revealing the Father's will, teaches the truth about moral action...The moral life [is] the due response to the many gratuitous initiatives taken by God out of love for man...Such is the witness of Sacred Scripture, imbued in every one of its pages with a lively perception of God's holiness." --John Paul II, Veritatis Splendor
