The Gospel of John portrays the passion of Jesus as His glorification. We are taught that the revelation of Jesus as the Messiah culminates in the saving acts of His suffering and death.
Sometimes when things seem darkest, God is hard at work. We know that our Faith means the most when we are down and out.
Dear Jesus, save me anew today. May I reach up to Your on the cross and be strengthened by Your suffering and death. Save me, Jesus.
O Holy Spirit, as You sustain Jesus through His suffering and death, so console me when I am most in need.
