My last reflection for 3minute retreat for today on “The Passion of our Lord

Where do the truths we live by come from? Are they rooted in the Gospel? Are they rooted in Christ? Or are they rooted in the world? Are they rooted in selfish pursuits? Are they rooted in the gospel according to friends, a spouse, parents, or colleagues?

It’s easy to get wrapped up in truths that are not from God. We can find ourselves seeking things that appear to be good only to find that they have done nothing but pull us drastically away from Jesus’ Father, Our Father. This is not the truth we see today in remembering Jesus’ death.

The truth we see today is a man who was rooted firmly in his Father. We see a man who, despite the journey he had to walk, trusted that his Father would see him through it. We see a man who trusted that God would overcome the darkness of his death.
