Love of Christ

I have heard people say that looking at the crucifix or meditating on the Passion of Christ makes them feel guilty. An experience of God's love—as manifested in the Passion—can leave us asking, “What do you want from me?” To know Someone did so much for me me is overwhelming and we feel we must do something in return. He doesn't ask anything from us, but he hopes we will strive to love him. As our Creator he could demand our love; as our Redeemer he could make us feel indebted to him. But we are free to respond to his love or not.
