This is more like it , good words from President
“The triumph of Palm Sunday. The humility of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet. His slow march up that hill, and the pain and the scorn and the shame of the cross. And we’re reminded that in that moment, he took on the sins of the world – past, present and future – and he extended to us that unfathomable gift of grace and salvation through his death and resurrection,” he said.
Citing the Old Testament book of Isaiah, Obama added, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
Obama called it “magnificent grace,” “expansive grace,” “amazing grace.”
It’s that grace that calls him to reflect, pray, ask God for forgiveness, and praise God for “the gift of … His Son and our Savior,” he said.
