He Nailed It To The Cross

For this, I have sweated blood. For this, I was crowned with thorns. I let Myself be nailed to the wood of the Cross. I endured unspeakable suffering.” (Jesus) (May 1962)

Today’s Readings: And even when you were dead in transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, he brought you to life along with him, having forgiven us all our transgressions; obliterating the bond against us, with its legal claims, which was opposed to us, he also removed it from our midst, nailing it to the cross; (Colossians 2)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, You have nailed to the Holy Cross all of our transgressions! So why Lord do we walk around still in chains? Are we afraid to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation because of some deep hidden sin  that we feel that God will never forgive? Go and be healed, He nailed it to The Cross!  Are we afraid to let go of anxiety and fear, our need for control, our lack of trust in Divine Providence? Let it go, He nailed it to The Cross! Is there anything holding you back from complete freedom- unforgiveness, bad habits and addictions, any malady of the heart? Take it to The Cross through His Word, Prayer, and the Sacraments- He has nailed it all to The Cross!
