“God has now reconciled you…”
The author of Colossians reminds us that the “real cosmic” power is Jesus Christ. His death and resurrection has reconciled us to God, His Father. We always have to come back to the cross and the empty tomb. In another place in the N.T., Paul reminds us that his message is always around the cross,”I preach Christ and Him Crucified.”
Yesterday was First Friday for the month of September. Christ’s Sacred Heart was pierced by the lance. From His side blood and water flowed, the sacramental life of the Church. We need to always tap into that source of grace in our lives as we work our way through our own crosses. His grace helps us to carry our cross daily and follow after Him.
