On this solemn day, we venerate the cross of Jesus and obey the words of Pilate in today's Gospel of John 'Behold the Man'. We look on him who has been pierced for our sins and the sin of all humanity. As the first reading from Isaiah teaches us, Jesus endured all this suffering so as to offer us hope and healing - 'By his wounds we have been healed'. Behold the wood of the cross on which hung the Saviour of the world. Come let us adore him.
