"Quia amasti me, fecisti me amabilem."
"Because You have loved me, I am made lovable."

On this most sacred day, let us remember how Christ gave up His life for the sins of us all. Before we were born, before we had taken our first breaths, and before our eyes had even opened, we had already been saved. Christ is crucified for our sins so that we may be saved. Through the most deplorable method of execution created - one in which a word was needed to be created to even describe - Christ died for me. And He died for you. And He died to show us how sacrificially and selflessly He loves us.
The word “excruciating” is created from the stem “ex-,” meaning “out of,” and the root “-cruciate,” meaning “cross.” The word was created to describe the pain and suffering that crucifixion caused its victims. And yet, He knowingly went forth with His passion for one reason alone: Love. 
Let us be reminded of how we are made lovable because He has loved us. And has loved us enough to go through excruciating pain to prove it.

"Quia amasti me, fecisti me amabilem."
"Because You have loved me, I am made lovable."

"Quia amasti me, fecisti me amabilem."

"Because You have loved me, I am made lovable."

The cross is about the revelation of a merciful God. At the cross we discover a God who would rather die than kill his enemies. The cross is where God in Christ absorbs sin and recycles it into forgiveness. The cross is not what God inflicts upon Christ in order to forgive. The cross is what God endures in Christ as he forgives.
I will bow my life at Your feet. My lips, so lost for words, will kiss Your feet. Oh, the gravity of You draws my soul unto its knees. I will never be the same; I am lost and found in You.
