SEVEN: Trust

21 03 2008

Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

At the last, Jesus does all he can do. He gives up control of everything and trusts.

No one can take his life from him, but he gave and poured his life out for everyone. He ministered and comforted so many, and the only one to minister and comfort him is common criminal who only asked to be remembered.

He gave his life back to the Father, the source of everything. And so his body grows cold and stiff. The fires which lit the light of the world are now extinguished and have grown cold.

In the end, all Jesus can do … all any of us can do … is trust.

If it’s available over here i’m not aware … i have heard it was very good. I like the premise that it tells the story from three different points of view.

RB, you do beautifully with so few words – the perfect homilist!

I think we were given those thirty years of His life so we could see what Light looked like and lived like.

And now there is this brief, silent, darkness.

And then we will all be given the lighter, and the future light is still His, but it is up to us yo keep it lit!
