The Way

For our Jewish forebears Torah - the Law - was the way. Jesus tells us that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  Jesus has come not to destroy the Law but to fulfill it. All that he is, all that he proclaims, all that he accomplishes in his dying and rising reveals the fullness of God's desire for our well-being and salvation. Indeed the whole Law has been set before us in Christ Jesus, our Lord; he whose Body is forever marked with the wounds of his passion. His wounded body is our sacred text wherein we read the truth of who we are - the truth of our wounds, whatever they are, as gateways to new life and hope in him.
