“He loved his own in the world and he loved them to the end.” (John 13:1)
As we prepare for the Paschal Triduum-Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday-it is important to remember that everything that Jesus did for us was because He loves us. His washing of the disciples’ feet, His passion, His death, His descent into hell, and His resurrection from the dead are all acts of love for us.
So no matter what we’ve done, what sin we’ve committed, or wherever we are in our spiritual lives, Jesus is telling us, through everything we’re about to enter into with Him, “I love you. Come back to me.”
