“Truly This Man Was God’s Son”
Keep us attuned, O God, to the ongoing results of and the ongoing effect of the death on the Cross of your Son Jesus.
Keep us aware, O God, of how things have changed and are changing, both in your vast creation and in the lives of people, because of the death of Jesus.
Keep us amazed, O God, at what the Crucifixion shows us about who Jesus was and who Jesus is.
“Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice and breathed his last. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. After his resurrection they came out of the tombs and entered the holy city and appeared to many. Now when the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were terrified and said, ‘Truly this man was God’s Son!’” (Matthew 27:50-54)
