Gospel: John 3:13-17
No one has ever gone up to heaven except the one who came from heaven, the Son of Man. As Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
Yes, God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but may have eternal life.
God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world; instead, through him the world is to be saved.

REFLECTION:
As the world exerts efforts to advance comfort and pain-free life, there is increasing evasion from the message of Christ’s love through His death on the cross. Watching movies like The Passion of the Christ, many are asking whether this violent passage is necessary.
But try visi­ting a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy. Would you ask: “Is it necessary for you to have that pain?”
Isn’t it more helpful that you stay with him or her and that you make him or her feel not abandoned in that suffering?
The first reading speaks of the brazen serpent as antidote to the serpents’ bites. Then, Jesus empties Himself and suffers to invade and defeat this world’s afflictions. That is what the embrace of the cross does to those crucified by illness, family distress, and brokenness.
Someone cared to enter and bear their pain.
