His Heart Was Pierced

When the Roman soldier drove a lance up into the side of Christ’s body on the Cross, blood and water poured forth from His pierced heart. At that same moment, the earth itself trembled and the very rocks split. The veil in the Holy of Holies was torn asunder, exposing the most sacred of sacred places to the outside world. We are even told that graves opened up and the holy people who had been buried there rose, living again. When some of the soldiers saw how Christ died, feeling the very ground quaking beneath them, they exclaimed, their eyes open wide, “Truly, this was the Son of God!”

This is how God Incarnate brings Redemption and Salvation. His Sacred Heart is made accessible and He pours His love and mercy out upon us – and all Creation is shaken up, forever changed. Now is torn away the veil between human and divine, between the dead and the living – between doubt and faith.

… But not all will choose to enter the opened way….

There once was a cripple…
who wasn't afraid to acknowledge that she was a cripple or to share her life of wonder, struggles, sorrow, and joy with perfect strangers. Here I am.
Join me as I explore the reality of divine love in the flesh, reflecting on what it means to be fully human, fully alive.
