Remember Me - Today we celebrate Christ our anointed King who overcame suffering and death and so brought us out of darkness into his kingdom of light. As our Gospel brings up to that first Good Friday scene, we see a king who remembers. While a long memory can have a negative twist, what a joy it is to be remembered! To know that you have a hallowed place in another's memory is a great blessing. After all it was what one dying companion asked of Jesus: not a favour, he asked just to be remembered: 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom' (Luke 23:42). The response of Jesus; 'Today you will be with me in paradise,' tells us what kind of king we follow.

'Today' - a king prompt in responding; 'with me' - a king who accompanies; 'In Paradise' - a king who rewards, no election promises here!
That is the kind of King we follow. We adore you, O Christ and we bless you, because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.
