Christ Carrying the Cross — Andrea Solario, 1505
In giving his life for us, Jesus asks us to live our lives for others. He asks us to share in his work of redemption. That’s why the Gospel is never merely a call to be ‘nice’ to others. There’s nothing sweet about Golgotha. Life in Jesus Christ is a call to heroic and self-sacrificing love.
—Archbishop Charles Chaput
