About 1983 years ago, Our Lord allowed Himself to be nailed to a cross and killed by human beings. All our sins across time; past, present and future contributed to His agony.
I normally watch the film, The Passion of the Christ, on this day to help me be with Him across time and space, so that I really appreciate what He has done and to help me love Him more. It doesn't seem to be a mere intellectual exercise as I think what must happen is that my reaching towards Him results in His Grace pouring down to really connect me to that event. I can't really explain it better than that, except that something happens that transcends emotion and intellect.
I'm a bit late with this post as tradition holds that Our Lord died at 3pm.
