FrBenjamin – Jesus jumped in to push us out (Good Friday)

Benjamin Homilies

In September there was a story about a man who died after jumping into his septic tank. The man and his son, Joseph, were working in the yard when Joseph fell into the tank. The man jumped in to push his son out, but he died in the tank. Falling into a septic tank is a perfect image for what our sins do to us. On Good Friday, we remember that Jesus jumped into the darkness of sin in order to push us out.
