(Gospel) ”They were overwhelmed with grief.”
Like the Joker in The Dark Knight, the apostles only seem to want half. But only seeing the only hard half of being Christian makes for some very sad saints.
The heart of the Christian message isn’t the cross. Suffering exists: we all hurt every day. The important part of Christ’s gospel is that he has conquered suffering. Grief gives way to joy. Death gives way to life.
The cross is the first half of Christianity. But don’t settle for half. Go all the way.
