I just spent some time in prayer with the image of Jesus' being lifted up on the Cross (John 3:13-17.) Another image came to me of the Father's long arms reaching out of the mists of the Other World to lift up the broken, crucified body of his Son and hold him close in God's loving embrace. I saw a father lifting his crying son out of his crib and hugging him. I imaged the Father's long arms reaching out from the Other World and lifting the broken body of the whole human race into his wide embrace. I felt myself lifted too and simply surrendered.
