“WHO IS HE?” THE PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM ASKED 

So who is He to me and where do I stand in relation to Him in today's recital of the Passion?  Am I maybe an unthinking member of the crowd or even Judas who thought Jesus should be a national leader, happy to show off his power.  On the other hand, could I be the disciple who asks Jesus "Where do you want us to go"? - ready to do whatever He wishes.  Perhaps there is something of Peter's presumption in me "though all should lose faith in You I will never lose faith," or maybe a bit of Pilate who put political expediency first and washed his hands of his duty.  Or am I standing by the tomb with Mary Madgalen and the other Mary, for whom love held beyond death?  Or am I simply walking the whole journey with Mary, His mother, asking her to comfort all those who see their child, no matter what are, die a painful death before their eyes, unable to do anything or maybe not even be there at all?   Whatever our position, - be it heartbroken or sorrowful - acknowledging and asking forgiveness for our faults - even if they include betrayal, wordly ambition or rank selfishness - and then cling to Him, we will be held in a Love that makes us whole no matter how broken we are.  "By His wounds we have been healed."

We adore You O Christ

and we bless You

Because by your Holy Cross

You have redeemed the World.
