For Saturday 3/28
They told Christ to save himself and then they would believe in his identity as the Son of God. But if he was to prove himself by coming down the cross he could only have saved himself and not all people. To live is to suffer. And even more so to suffer with others. But he suffered alone, when all had fled and denied him. Yet he did not save himself. Selfless love and sacrifice -- such is the love of Christ for the world.
A beautiful thought from Palm Sunday service (on Saturday evening.)
