Redemption is made Available to All MankindBy Frederick Pogorzelski, Catholic Catechist
The stations of the cross from the Praetorium to Golgotha and the tomb trace the way of Christ Jesus, who by his Holy Cross has redeemed the world (John1:29) (1 Peter1:19) (Heb 10:10) (1 John 4:10). Jesus won the victory (2 Timothy 1:3-11) (Rom.5:19-20). Redemption is made available to all mankind and can be applied to us as individuals at Baptism. We receive initial Baptismal grace free and unmerited, and we are then justified (1 Peter 3:21) (Titus 3:5) (1 Cor. 6:11) (Rom. 6:4). Justification detaches man from sin and reconciles man with God. It sanctifies and renews us; we "put on Christ" (Gal. 3:27) using our freedom to cooperate with God (Romans 3:22). To continue in justification, we must do our part and accept the redemption in faith by living the life of Christ. Bible verses on the Cross, Redemption, and Justification
Truth is a Person - Jesus Christ. "The Way" to Christ - the cross.
