To paraphrase Peter John Cameron, O.P. in “Lent and Reality”: Salvation is an escape from our own inability.
In our darkness, the incomparable capacity of our being will settle for nothing less than the embrace of the Infinite. Like nothing else, our helplessness moves us to cry out for that embrace in confidence and trust. The cry of forsakenness that Jesus emits from the cross is just this.
Dare to move from belief to trust.
