From a Creighton Student's Perspective

On this Good Friday, we anxiously await to share in the resurrection on Easter Sunday. But like Mary at the foot of the cross in the gospel story, we can not run straight to the resurrection, but must first partake in the suffering. Perhaps in this Lenten journey we have been challenged and emptied by our Lenten resolves. We have seen the weakness of the flesh but the willingness of the spirit. We have seen that we long for more than this life offers and anxiously await the coming of the Kingdom. This is because as Christians we are called to be in the world, but not to be of the world. Just as Jesus says in today’s gospel, "My kingdom does not belong to this world.” So is it for us too, that we do not belong to this world. In this passion narrative we see the humanity of our savior. It is with this humanity that we may take our hope and come to see that he understands the weakness of our flesh.
