This second Sunday in Lent we will reflect on the Second Word (statement) Jesus spoke from the cross, “Truly, I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43) Jesus spoke these surprising words of assurance to one of the criminals being crucified next to him. While we don’t know what “paradise” will be like, we do know that we will be with Christ. Even now, today we are with him, and where he is (even if it’s a cross), there paradise is. Now that is some amazing good news!
