Beneath The Cross Of Christ
For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God We preach Christ crucified, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
|And behold: we
beneath the cross of the ages, wish, through Your cross and
passion, O Christ, to cry out today that mercy [which] has irreversibly entered in
to the history of man, into our whole human historyand which in spite of the
appearances of weakness is stronger than evil. It is the greatest power and force upon
which man can sustain himself, threatened as he is from so many sides
Holy is God.
May the power of Your love once more be shown to be greater than
the evil that threatens it. May it be shown to be greater than sin
