In his reflection for this weekend, Tony Crescio reflects on the meaning of Jesus telling us that He is going to prepare the way for us in His Father’s House in light of the Cross of Christ. As Tony explains, this reading reveals the way prepared by Christ and the eternal life wherein those who follow Him shall dwell eternally. In the end, both are lived only through, with, and in the self-sacrificing love of the Incarnate Son, Jesus Christ.
