Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Nm 21:4b-9
Phil 2:6-11
Jn 3:13-17



Christ was lifted up, but not in the way he should have been. Christ was lifted up and emptied himself completely, his life poured out that we might look up, gaze upon him, and live. Christ poured himself out, an act of kenotic love, a total emptying of self for others, for us. The perfect example of the call that each of us has received, the perfect sign of God’s vast love for us. Wee are called to this same kenotic love, this total emptying of self, for God, for the people of God. I especially address this idea of kenotic love this day to my brothers in diaconal ministry. Christ as servant is, and should be our ideal. We are called to this same kenotic love, to be the example before others of this great self-emptying. Not an easy task, I know. But we have before us the perfect example to follow. All we must do is look up, look up and gaze upon the one lifted up for us, for when we look up, we live.

You don't fool me one bit John!

If The Evil Trinity's children and ancestors came to you with a few request, you would probably say with a sincere heart.

Don't you know by now guys and gals that you're wasting your time so if you don't want to nail me to God's Cross, I would advise you to "Get Lost"

OK! Go for "IT" in Time until "The Judgement Day" if you want to cause that's really none of my business, cause "IT" "All" belongs to Christ!

God Bless,

Peace
