Jesus our Lord … was handed over to death for our sins and was raised for our justification.  – Rom 4:24-25

Reflection. Jesus was afraid in the garden that night.  He was not afraid of death itself, but of the manner in which He would die.  He was human like us.  When you are feeling afraid, remember that the servant cannot be greater than the master.

Prayer. Lord, teach me not to run away from my cross.  By Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
