FAITH IN FOCUS:
T
THE
oday’s gospel tells us
that on the first Good
Friday there were three
crosses on Calvary. They
were the cross of sin, the
cross of sorrow and the
cross of salvation. The one
that we choose for ourselves will affect where we
spend eternity.
T
he cross of sin
belonged to the
thief who was unrepentant. We don’t know
what his crime was
(traditionally we say he
was a thief) but we do
know that he was there
to be executed. His life
of crime had hardened
him and he clearly
could feel no remorse
for his sin. He was so far
from God that his cynicism
lasted to the very end. He
even mocked Jesus, suggesting that if he really
were the Christ he would
be able to get down from
the cross and save them
too. His choices in life were
such that he didn’t know
how far he had fallen. His
sin had blinded him to reality.
THREE CROSSES
T
he cross of sorrow
was the one on which
the other thief hung. Unlike
his fellow criminal he recognised his own guilt and felt
contrition. He knew that he
deserved what he was getting while Jesus had done
nothing wrong but was suf-
O
f course, the cross of
salvation was reserved for Jesus of Nazareth. His crucifixion was a
great paradox because although he was being executed, after being falsely
accused, his death would
end in victory. He had never claimed to be King
of the Jews, as the
inscription on his cross
proclaimed, but he
would end up as Christ
the Universal King. His
cross was the means
by which he took the
world’s sinfulness upon himself in a glorious
act of atonement. He
willingly accepted to
be the sacrificial victim, loving to the very end
those entrusted to him by
his Father. It was this salvation that he offered to the
repentant thief moments
before they were both to
breathe their last.
fering the same fate. His
act of repentance took the
form of standing up for Jesus and rebuking the other
thief. Although he had led a
life of crime he was not
proud of it and he still had
respect for God, something
he cross of sin, the
he tried to point out to his
cross of sorrow and
companion. Even at this the cross of salvation: we

chance for him to try and will you choose?
