How Did You Feel…? – Part 5 of 5

How did you feel, O Priests…

when your enemy was hung on the cross? Did you think that finally people would no longer follow this man who had such radical ideas? How did you feel when the veil which separated the Holy of Holies from the rest of the Temple was torn from top to bottom? Did you remember Jesus’ words, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God,”? Were you afraid that, indeed, Jesus was God’s Son and you were responsible for rejecting Him? When you ordered the repair of the curtain was it business as usual? Did you really think you could stay the hand of God? Did some of you believe that the man on the cross was really the Son of God?

How do you feel, O People of the World…

when you read the Bible verse: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life? Are you included?

How do you feel, O People of the World…

when you read the Bible verse:…first must He (Son of Man) suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation? Are you included?

How Did You Feel…? – Part 4 of 5

How did you feel, O Cross…

when wood from Creator’s Hand and nails from man’s hand met to crucify the precious Lamb of God? How did you feel when the spear was thrust in His side and blood and water ran down to the ground? Did you understand that you would replace the altar of the old covenant? Did you know that the Son of Man told His followers, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow Me”? How did you feel, O Cross, when your burden was made heavier as the sins of the world were laid upon Jesus?

How did you feel, O Sign…

when you became a witness written in three languages declaring Jesus to be King of the Jews? You bore the words of judgment against the chief priests when, in answer to Pilate’s question, they responded, “We have no king but Caesar.”
