Originally delivered on March 19, 1989
On this Sunday, we celebrate the Passion of our Lord. Each of us, in our way, is destined to experience our own “way of the cross” through our disappointments, suffering, and frustrations. Through these experiences of hurt and fear, we are reminded that we can get closer to understanding the love Jesus has for us by his own human suffering at Calvary. By commingling His humanity with his divinity, Jesus experiences and shares our suffering. He is with and in us. We try to deepen our passion and reverence for our Lord, Jesus Christ. This year, let us realize that our passion is also His.
