Daily Mass: The stage is set, let the great story begin. Catholic Inspiration

The Passover meal is prepared, the disciples are gathered around Jesus, and with sorrow the Lord announces that a betrayer is in their midst.  The point?  There is no spin or sugar coating salvation history as we embark on the Sacred Triduum.  For in the midst of human darkness and sin, the Son of God will shine the light of grace upon our world.

Daily Mass: The sacrifice of the one for the many. Catholic Inspiration

The prophetic words of Caiaphas reveal an insight into God’s plan for our salvation, “it is better for you that one man should die instead of the people.”  Jesus Christ takes our place by his death on the Cross so that our sins might be washed clean by his blood.  May this fact bring us to our knees in grateful thanks for what God has done for us.
