A Daily Quote for Lent: Christ nailed our weakness to the cross, by Augustine of Hippo, 430-543 A.D.
“As evening drew near, the Lord yielded up His soul upon the cross in the certainty of receiving it back again. It was not wrested from Him against His will. But we too were represented there. Christ had nothing to hang upon the cross except the body He had received from us. And in doing so He nailed our human weakness to the cross.” (excerpt from Commentary on Psalm 140,5)
