Jesus in the Mysteries of the Rosary

  1. Sorrowful Mysteries
    1. Death on the Cross

We have reached the "culmination" of Jesus' life. That "dramatic ending" on the Skull Hill (the name of the place says it all!) was not improvised: although it may seem unbelievable, God had already "foreseen" it before the creation of the world (another mystery!).

St. Paul - who was putting in writing the tradition he was being instructed in - is totally explicit: "God, in Him [Jesus Christ], chose us before the creation of the world (...), through his blood" (Eph 1:3-4,7) (we have shortened the quote, probably diminishing its impact). This is how the Father in Heaven has blessed us: through the Blood of his Son!

When Jesus is "taken down" and "laid" in the lap of his (our) Mother, he no longer has any Blood: he has shed ALL of it for our eternal happiness (Read more: "When Jesus had taken the wine, he said, ‘It is finished.’ And bowing his head, he handed over the spirit").
