Love Him

The deacon at Good Friday's homily focused on the response Jesus gave when asked if he was Jesus of Nazareth. The response was not "I am he" but I AM. Jesus identified with existence itself, and in declaring that he was the same God who spoke from the burning bush, he caused the soldiers to fall prostrate. Yet, they arrested and killed him.

The deacon reminded us that we are no different when we commit mortal and even venial sin. He exhorted us to change our evil ways, and choose rather to LOVE the Lord, not kill.

Spend your Easter in acts of mission rather than sins of omission.
