Facing Your Deepest Fears: 5th Sunday of Lent
by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday March 21, 2021
What do you see when you gaze upon a crucifix? Do you see your fear of rejection? It's there. Do you see your fear of loneliness? That's there to. Do you see your fear of pain and death? How about your fear of being laughed at? How about your fear of failure? It's all there. The deepest fears of our lives are all nailed on the cross with Jesus. We want to hide the our shame but Our Lord says no. Confront it all. Bare it all, he tells us. Our darkest, pus-ridden wounds will be the very means of our salvation on that cross.
