7LW: Lisa E. - "... my God, why have you abandoned me?"



"The cross is not a sign of defeat - it is a sign of victory, of redemption, of vindication, of hope." - Lisa E.

Young professional Lisa E. shares with us her reflection on Jesus' words: "My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?"

As a survivor of sexual abuse, Lisa humbly shares how these words and the image of Jesus on the cross has had a profound effect on her faith, her life, and her attitude toward suffering and weakness.

Lisa echoes the words of St. Paul in his letter to the Corinthians: "... for when I am weak, then I am strong."
