To Serve & Give His Life
What’s the point of power and authority?
Is power meant for its own sake? Is authority solely to boss others around?
For the Christian, power is meant to be used to serve others and any authority we receive is meant to bring about good for the least around us.
“For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many,” Jesus tells His disciples who are vying for the VIP seats in His heavenly kingdom. Jesus’ mission was to die a lonely, humiliating death, a mission that would, through His sufferings, warrant for us new life.
As St. Paul tells us, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has similarly been tested in every way, yet without sin. So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help!” (Hebrews 4).
To prepare our hearts before we go to Holy Mass this weekend and to get a glimpse of how Catholics understand the story of salvation, watch the short video from Matt Nelson from the Word on Fire Institute on the Flocknote email.
We look forward to seeing you at any of the Holy Mass times this weekend where the presider of each Mass will be preaching, or stop by to visit Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel or at daily Mass during the week.
