If you’ve ever planted from seed – seed is split as pumpkin seeds, and beans (beans, chickpeas, peanuts) you can see: First seed is sown into the ground under dew, sunshine, rain and slowly the first leaves appear and the two halves of the particles gradually shrink or rot away and fall down. Meanwhile tall trees stronger by the day and fruit to blossom.
A moment of contemplation of the life of Jesus at birth can be seen: even as a fetus in the womb of Mary, he was bored by St. Joseph. So the Saint intentioned to leave both Mother and Son. When he was born, he was born in a dirty, dirty mess of cows, living thirty years of poverty and deprivation in Nazareth. Three years after, he went to preach the Gospel of Heaven, healing the sick. All his life he did not live for himself but lived for others. Especially in his passion he suffered a great deal of mental and physical suffering: his beloved and beloved disciple sold him and instructed his followers to arrest him. When evil men came to arrest the Lord, his disciples loved to run and run away. Then the disciple whom he loved in particular, Peter, denied three times that he did not know him. The crowd was following the Lord to be healed, to be eaten full now and back to crucify him (Mc 15,13). Then in loneliness on the Cross when hanged in the midst of heaven there is one who challenges the Lord: “He saved others, save him, if indeed he is the Christ of God, who is recruited. “Lc 24,35” In his loneliness he felt that God himself had abandoned him: “God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mt 27,46)
Indeed, the life of Jesus from conception until birth, the Cross is a series of painful days, challenging, constantly carrying the cross. His life if you look with the eyes of the world, it is the life of an unfortunate, tragic, born under a bad star, but ultimately persevered through him take his cross and that salvation was poured down on mankind through the ages. Prices through the Holy Spirit that sin and death are being pushed away shaking surrender. As followers of Jesus we are called to share the suffering of His sacrifice by the left please welcome the attention, difficulties and challenges in life. “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself away, and take up his cross and follow me.” (Mt 16,24) Thus the Lord’s salvation can down on us and on the other souls.
We worship, thanksgiving and praise to Christ, because God used the Holy Cross of Christ that atone for the earth and for children.
