What can I say, what words can I use on such a day? There is noting my human mind can phantom that can shed any light on this day, in my humanness I have no power over my limitedness in understanding this day.
My mind is to shallow to understand the sacrifice of the day, and can not comprehend the salvation of the injustice. In my humanness of me, i can not see beyond the pain and suffering of this day, I can not put in to words the feelings I have and the ones the I am unable to have, for I have limited feelings, for I am a fallen creation.
Good Friday, a day of many great mysteries and a day filled with pain and suffering, and a day we call good… In our Christian faith we have many suck mysteries, but the mystery of the cross, the mystery of the suffering and death of Christ is one that the human mind can not comprehend, it is one that we can not ever truly know.
Sure we can meditate on it, we can watch movies about it, but we can never really know the feeling of it, we can never truly know the the love of it. We are human, we are fallen and we are such simple beings with a limited mind.
Yet we try to understand, we try to grasp the suffering of our Lord, we try to join Him in his suffering, yet we can’t and we never will. Our suffering is nothing compared to His, yet we try. And Jesus smiles upon us, he welcomes our feeble efforts. And we are blessed.
Yes we are human, and we are limited, but Jesus smiles upon us, and asks us to enter in to His suffering, we welcomes us in to His passion, death and resurrection. Even thought we could never truly understand it.
No workds I speak, no actions I do and no understanding will come to me, yet I will enter in to the passion of my Lord and offer up my humanity, my imperfection and my trivial sufferings for that’s all that I have, and Jesus i will open his arms and take me in as I am.
