Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Jn 3: 13-17

Jesus said to Nicodemus: “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.” For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

An Invitation To Love

Fifteen years ago I was making the Spiritual Exercises and came to the meditation on the Crucifixion. I imagined myself approaching Mary and John at the foot of the cross and inquiring, “what is going on?” As they began to speak, my eyes moved to meet the eyes of Jesus on the cross. His words to me were simple and direct: “David, I will never stop telling you how much I love you. And I want all my people to know this.” For me, at that moment the meaning of the cross shifted forever. It was no longer a mysterious way Jesus redeems the world, but an impassioned call of love. It is a call of love that seeks love in return. It is an invitation to be in love! This is redemption, the reestablishment of the bond of love between each of us and God. It does not stop here, however;  it is a gift which God calls us to share with all his people, especially those who know little or no love in their lives. —David McNulty works for the Midwest Jesuits. Dave and his wife Judy are grandparents of six.  

Prayer

God our Father, in obedience to you your only Son accepted death on the cross for the salvation of mankind. We acknowledge the mystery of the cross on earth. May we receive the gift of redemption in heaven. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. —From the Roman Sacramentary, © Catholic Book Publishing Co., 1985

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
