Journeying with the Founder Day #64

If we ask ourselves why Jesus immolated Himself on the cross and why He is hidden in the Eucharist, the answer that we generally give is this: He had to redeem us. The more profound answer is different, though; the more profound answer is that He died on the cross and is hidden in the Eucharist because He loves us. If He had done this only to redeem us, a drop of His blood would have been sufficient because it has infinite value. What would be sufficient for justice, however, would not suffice for love. Thus we find ourselves facing a second unfathomable mystery: not simply the mystery of God’s creative love, but also the mystery of
Redemptive Love. (Charity)
