Turning point

A turning point in the history of the universe, when in these three days – Friday, Saturday, Sunday – an innocent victim, more faultless than any who have ever lived, accepts the punishment due for all our sins, which is death. It becomes for him a road to the hearts of those who have justly died, and those who will die yet, and for all of them a road to the Father. "Behold the Victor who steps forth to do battle; see him standing erect on the threshold, the redresser of the universe, the restorer of justice... Here I am! Who could go forth in my place, when it is the very axis of the world that needs righting?" (Paul Claudel)
