I become an instrument for the healing and transformation of what is happening around me, by my participation in the paradoxical mystery of the Cross, i.e. to stand between the contradictions of my life, sinful and grace-filled life. In Jesus I find reconciliation of the opposites. Its more correct to say that its in Jesus, crucified, hanging on the cross that I shall be made use of to serve the Abba’s purposes. Jesus did it. He invites me to the “great parade”.
