Easter Week – Remembering Triduum backwards 4

Jesus & Bosch

Why did Jesus die on the cross?  Why was he put to death?  Why do we humans, you and I,  put others on the cross?

Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) pictured Jesus immersed in and among wounded human beings.  Like us, though we may look better in the mirror.  John’s Passion Narrative, the ending of “The Book of Glory,” reveals Jesus as fully in charge of his destiny.  He is not a victim of circumstances as many see in Matthew, Mark, and Luke.  He goes to the cross full of love to manifest the Life-Giving God as he hands over his spirit – “It is finished, complete, rounded off.”  He loved us to the end.

Good Friday liturgy situates us right in the midst of Christ’s victory and your muddling through.  Happy Paradox! –roc,sj
