Last week, we saw Abraham and Isaac as a lens for how the Father sees the Cross. This week (3rd Sunday of Lent), it's St. Paul's words about how the Cross is foolishness and weakness to the Greeks and Jews, that shows us how "the world" sees the Cross. More importantly, we need not fear that it seems that way, for the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of the world, and His weakness is greater than its strength. In the end, the world is crazy, and Saints Francis and Maria Goretti are the sane ones.
