Outside da Box and Likability have once again produced an excellent video in service of the faith. "That 1 Day" helps us to understand why that fateful day so many years ago, the day in which a supposedly ordinary man died as a criminal, is so important for so many of us.
LOS ANGELES (Catholic Link) - Countless skeptics have tried to reduce these events we celebrate this week, to deprive them of their mysterious and divine character, to dampen the intensity of their light. Yet, as we witness throughout man's history, they do so in vain.
Even if they were to force silence upon every human person, surely "the very stones would cry out." Indeed, God's love has truly erupted into man's history, into my history and yours...
What is important about Christ's act of redemption isn't so much the number of his steps, or the nails that pierced his hands; rather, it is the magnitude of love with which he lived it all that drives the ferocity of the Christian spirit throughout the ages. It may be difficult to believe that so much could be accomplished in so little time.
Still, it is the truth and we mustn't fall into the temptation of looking elsewhere. It was there, on the hill of Golgotha, in that very moment, that God's love snapped the bond's of sin and death so as to offer us a path through which we could pass through the days of death and enter in the eternity of life!
