Gods Rules for Life 3 Minute Retreat
God's Rules for Life

Jim Manney shares his reflection on today’s retreat:

Jesus gave a loud cry and breathed his last.The veil of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom.When the centurion who stood facing him saw how he breathed his last he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” Mark 15:37-39

What a shock it must have been. At the very end of Jesus’s life, the centurion realized who Jesus really was. His eyes were opened. He recognized God.

Jesus stands before us too—just as he stood before the centurion. He is present in the people in our lives, in the work we do, in the natural world, in art, in learning, in the very air we breathe. Let’s recognize him. Let’s imitate the centurion and speak of what we’re seeing—there is the Son of God.
