Sixth Friday of Lent Reflection: Msgr. Gregory A. Gier

Editor’s Note: This is part of a series of Lenten reflections by the clergy of the Cathedral. Each deacon and priest will submit a reflection on a Friday of Lent. This is a short reflection, courtesy of Monsignor Gregory Gier.


gierThis is the last Friday of the Lenten Season.  Next Friday is the Friday of the Triduum and the most significant Friday of the Church Year, Good Friday.  We are entering the most solemn and holiest of weeks.  During this week we will commemorate and remember and celebrate the great gifts of Jesus in his Crucifixion and Eucharist.  We will remember not only that he gave himself once for us on the Cross but that he continues to give himself to us over and over again in the great gift of the Eucharist.  By His death he redeemed us from sin, in the Eucharistic he strengthens us to live as his brothers and sisters on our way to His Father’s throne.  During this great and wonderful week, please take some time to reflect on the wonder of these gifts and the person who values us so deeply that he has chosen never to leave us alone.  We adore you oh Christ and we bless you because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed ME!
