Paradox of love... (Easter Wednesday)

"We know that God makes all things work together
for the good of those who love him, who have been called
according to his decree." - Romans 8:28

"By a beautiful paradox of Divine love,
God makes His Cross the very means of our salvation and our life.

We have slain Him; we have nailed Him there and crucified Him;
but the Love in His eternal heart could not be extinguished.

He willed to give us the very life we slew;
to give us the very Food we destroyed;
to nourish us with the very Bread we buried,
and the very Blood we poured forth.

He made our very crime into a happy fault;
He turned a Crucifixion into a Redemption;
a Consecration into a Communion;
a death into Life Everlasting."

Archbishop Fulton J Sheen
