"In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins" (1 Jn 4,10). It is also fitting to point out, after a couple of long meditations on Job, that the Cross is the answer to Job's question about suffering. May we be like St. Paul, who wrote to the Church at Corinth: "know nothing among . . . except Jesus Christ and him crucified" (1 Cor. 2,2).
Eternal Son of the Father, you came to cast fire on the earth and you longed to see its flame kindled in the hearts of all people,
-grant that through holiness of life we may come to share in the undying light of your glory
