In Jesus, the curse becomes the cure. Like the serpent on the staff of Moses, Jesus on the Cross heals and saves.
It is a mystery that defies logic to believe that suffering saves. By embracing this mystery, though, we are invited into the beautifully good news that God’s love for each of us knows no limits or boundaries.
O God, help me to embrace the mystery of Your love. May my faith be strong enough to believe that suffering saves. May I, in turn, invite my sufferings to those of Jesus.
