Readings: Isaiah 50: 4-7; Paul 2: 6-11; Luke 22:14-23, 56 or 23:1-49
In this homily, we are challenged to ask ourselves “What does crucifying Jesus look like in our times?” However we celebrate the passion of our Lord, it ends with the sacred recalling of Jesus being utterly rejected and shamed before his sisters and brothers that He came to save. We must ask ourselves if we fear really welcoming Jesus. Yet we must also remember that He came to save us, despite our imperfections. We must be with Jesus on the hill if we are to be with Him as the Risen Lord.
