Holy Week, Monday (26 March)

26 March, 2018

Jesus who was divine showed his divinity in ways which are far from our understanding of power. He took on the form of a slave. He emptied himself and accepted death, even death on a cross. To our way of thinking, emptying oneself is the exact opposite of being fulfilled. Yet Jesus shows us that true fulfilment comes though self-giving out of love and it is through his total self-giving that Jesus reveals to us what loves is and what love attains.  The Way of the Cross is the Way of total self-giving in love. (Archbishop Diarmuid Martin)

Lord Jesus, teach me to give of myself, and not to count the cost.
