Reflection of the Week - 19th April 2022

Jesus’ call throughout his teaching resounds with holding firm to faith in God.

Good Friday echoes injustice, suffering, hardship, affliction and trauma. Absurd and unfounded accusations, followed by unjust decisions result in harsh and violent outcomes, all due to humanity’s worst traits. This echoes the human story.

Yet, Jesus acknowledged this, held firm to grace, suffered, walked with dignity, and acted with peace.

Today, we are called to acknowledge God’s truth, our humanity, and the outcomes of our sin-filled attitudes and actions. Jesus does. God’s grace meets us throughout our lives, when we are perpetrators and victims. It is we who must seek this. May we choose to walk Jesus’ way of truth, seek to act with humility and just peace, and hold firmly to where there is God’s grace.

Contemplation is the practice of being fully present—in heart, mind, and body—to what is in a way that allows you to creatively respond and work toward what could be.
