Exaltation of the Holy Cross - A


The Bridge Love Builds

The basic tenets of the Christian faith can be found all in this passage of John’s Gospel.  Indeed, the Cross summarizes it all.
  • We can’t go to God on our own (“No one has gone up to heaven”).
  • God loves us so much that God does not want us to perish, but to have eternal life.
  • God’s love is so great that God’s only Son comes to bring us to God
  • That’s the only way.
  • And the Son does that by his death on the cross.  
There, the cross is the bridge between us and God.  It is the bridge built of love.
