If you gaze at the gruesome physicality of the cross long enough,
you can begin to see past the horror of suffering-
into the gorgeous treasure of graces within.
Perfect Love cloaked Himself in the consequences of our actions to save us-
could anything be more beautiful?
If you have the courage to look,
you can see that same Glorious Innocence today,
hiding in the hearts of the poor, the homeless, the addicted and the mentally ill.
Christ is everywhere, cloaked humbly in our mistakes-
aching for us to show Him we care.
