would you lay down your life for Christ

Tuesday, 15-04-2014

Holy week

Readings of the day:

Isaiah 49:1-6
Psalm 71:1-6, 15, 17
John 13:21-33, 36-38


Just like prophet isaiah, God formed everyone of us in our mother’s womb. He endowed us with the gifts in which to flourish the world with–this comes with our intelligence and will. We are left with a choice; the choice of dedicating our all to the one who made us for himself or not.

The question is: Would you lay down your life for Christ?

In laying down our life for Christ, it does not deny us our freedom in any sense, rather it ignites and purifies it.

May we then echo the words of the Dominician priest, St. Thomas aquinas: “Grant me, o Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you.”

Peace and Love of Christ!
