Jesus is both the reality that signifies and the signified reality. He is the sign and the signified all together at the same time. He is the sign of God’s love for us but He Himself is God’s love for us made visible. He is the sign of God’s presence but He Himself is the presence of God made tangible to us. He is the sign of God’s power but He Himself is the power of God at work in us. So what else is left to signify when He who is signified is already revealed?

Do not be afraid of the Cross of Christ. The Cross is the Tree of Life. It is the source of all joy and peace. It was the only way for Jesus to reach resurrection and triumph. It is the only way for us to share in his life, now and for ever. // Saint John Paul II⠀ ⠀…
