VI - "It is finished"

VI - "It is finished"
John 19:30

"A bowl full of vinegar stood there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, "it's finished", and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit."

When Christ says it is finished, he is not saying that it is all over.

No. Instead, he is saying it is accomplished. It is completed.

A meditation for those discerning their vocation in life: When you reach old age and you lie back in your bed, what will you be thinking of when you say "it is finished, it is accomplished." What will you have accomplished? What work will you have finished?
