In this reflection for the Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Kristen Fisher reminds us that it cost Jesus everything to save us, and he thought we were worth the cost.
Remember that real love requires real sacrifice and service. Jesus showed us this, his whole life, but especially on the cross, that serving and sacrificing for the ones we love is not optional. It is the truest demonstration of love. Let us allow the crucifixes in our lives and in our churches and in our homes to be more than wall hangings and signs to the world that we’re Catholic.
