Let the Scriptures Speak

Dennis
Hamm, SJ

Good Friday

How is it that he, although he is the Creator, has come to make himself a human being?

Easter Vigil

Abraham's readiness to let go of everything mirrors the divine outpouring manifested in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.


The Word Embodied

John
Kavanaugh, SJ

Holy Week/
Easter

Jesus entered the deeps of death, a plunge he need not have made had he not loved us in our sorry state. But he went to death with a “yes,” with the utter trust of Abraham, the constancy of Moses, the bright reliance of Isaiah. In Easter’s vigil, we plunge with him.
