“The Way of the Cross … An Ending, a Beginning”

presented by

Barry Donaghue cfc D.Min.

Throughout his life Jesus showed us how to reject the false self with its egotistical addictions to power, wealth and prestige, and to come steadily and with purpose to the fullness of our humanity. As spiritual beings having a human existence, just like Jesus, we are called to live in both worlds, trusting in God rather than ourselves.   By Jesus’ trust in God to, through and beyond death, he moved from the Jesus of limited place and time to reclaim his identity as the eternal Christ.

So, the Way of the Cross is the last stage of Jesus’ human growth path into divine fullness of life. We can follow this path with sadness but also with joy; it puts into the hands of each of us the key to resurrection.   We can follow this path with sadness but also with joy; it puts into the hands of each of us the key to resurrection.
