THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The Gospel, this Sunday, Jesus talks about his suffering death and
Resurrection. Peter was not very impressed. He had just confessed that
he was the Messiah, but he felt that he would be a great and powerful
leader who might succeed in throwing the Roman power out in Palestine.
He did not expect a suffering Messiah, but Jesus goes on to explain to
his followers that they must follow in his footsteps. Jesus turns
current views on their heads. Too often, like Peter, the way we think
"is not God’s way, but man’s". Jesus suffering was laced with real love,
not an emotional surge of interest in someone else.
"if anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself
and take up his cross and follow me". That sounds a tough and
off-putting message. But a little thought can convince us of its truth.
Success in any walk of life entails taking up a cross and dying to the
contrary voices in ourselves. Business people can spend excessive hours
in order to make their project a success. Sports people spend hours in
tough training to reach the success that they de-sire. Artists spend
painstaking hours perfecting their work until they are satisfied that it
is ready for presentation to the public. If we are to be good loving
people ready to put ourselves out for those we love then the cross comes
into play as we give the best of ourselves on behalf of each other. "For
any-one who wants to save his life will lose it; but any-one who loses
his life for my sake will find it".
