In His resurrection is our Victory!
A few days ago, I was preaching about the passage from the book of Numbers and the Gospel according to John referring to the account of the children of Israel and the bronze serpent which Moses lifted up on a pole. Jesus said: “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, the Son of Man must also be lifted up. So that everyone who believes can have eternal life in him.” (John 3:14)
Then I asked believers just to look at the cross for a few minutes and be open to its power. After the Mass, a Zulu lady approached me and said that she came sick to church that day; with a headache and pain in her back. Looking at the cross she said to Jesus that she leaves all her pains and worries on that cross. Then she felt the gentle presence of the Lord who took away her pain and filled her with peace. She felt healed and happy.
In a tremendous gesture of Love Jesus absorbed all evil upon Himself and became a true shield for you and me. Let Him heal you in this blessed time of Easter; in His wound is our restoration, in His resurrection our Victory!
