During the fifth week we take a turn in our meditations, returning again to the cross from our thoughts on discipleship last week. Instead of the foolishness of the cross, we see the beloved Son of God on the cross. We are invited to consider its foreshadowing in the Old Testament. We note the seemingly stark contrast between the beginning of His ministry when he had been called "my beloved Son" by the Father, and this day of his death.
