Msgr. Esseff reflects on the readings for the 4th Sunday of Lent. What are the darkness of our days? What is the message of this weekend’s liturgy? Mercy and Love! It’s not so much that God is so angry with mankind, but that He loves us so much that He would suffer and die for us, even when we are in sin. He did not come to condemn, but to save. What is required? Faith…faith in His infinite love. What is the sign of that love? Look at the crucifix.
