Fr. Rodney Kissinger, S.J. On Christ Crucified

St. Paul claimed that he knew nothing but Jesus Christ crucified. “Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, to the pagans foolishness, but to those who believe the power and the wisdom of God.” St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the greatest theologians in the history of the Church, said that he got all of his wisdom on his knees before the crucifix. St. Augustine, one of the most brilliant doctors of the Church, said, “One tear shed before the crucifix is worth a year of penance.”
