Thought of the Day March 21, 2016

The way of salvation is that of obedience to the will of God and suffering humiliation at the hands of others as well as showing humility through service. This is the path Jesus took to the cross. This is the focus of Holy Week from the entrance into Jerusalem through his death on the cross. Neither the acclamations of the pilgrims on Palm Sunday nor the shouts for his crucifixion at his trial changed who he was. He was the Son who came to do the will of the Father, whether he was accepted or rejected. He embraced the present moment whether it was that of unwarranted humiliation or the humility of service. What he embraced was the will of the Father. Can we do the same, even  in a limited way?
