A crown of thorns.The crown of thorns was saved.

Did you see it on TV, or read about it in the news? Notre Dame’s most venerated relic was rescued from the flames that engulfed the world-famous cathedral earlier this week. Some claim it is the original crown of thorns that Roman soldiers forced onto the head of Jesus Christ before he was crucified.

Of course, no one knows for sure whether it’s authentic or a fake. Whatever its history, the crown of thorns reminds us of the reality of the suffering of Christ and of what he did for us. Jesus, the Son of God, sacrificed himself for all of us, and was raised from the dead that we might live forever with him.

Accept Jesus, your Saviour.

He’s the real thing.
