In our Lenten journey the Church is constantly drawing our attention to the redeeming power of Christ's Blood. In his suffering and death on the Cross, Jesus becomes the source of salvation for all who believe in him. In the Gospel Jesus himself tells us that lifted up from the earth, he will draw everyone to himself. This is truly the meaning of redemption, which we acknowledge, saying: "We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world.
