This is the first of a six-part Lenten Retreat where Fr. Andrew reflects on a different aspect of the Stations of Cross each night. In this presentation Jesus is the key to help us understand how we confront the injustices and evils in our lives.
While the phrase “love one another” sounds great when we like the people in question, the real test of faith occurs when it’s tough. The command of Jesus to “love your enemies” will demand us to become like the Lord – who even forgave those who nailed him to the Cross. To do this we call upon God for the grace we need to be filled with the love of Christ so that we can share his love in all moments of life…even when surrounded by enemies.
