able to help those who are being tested

February 2, 2019 6:00 am

“Surely he did not help angels but rather the descendants of Abraham; therefore, he had to become like his brothers and sisters in every way, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest before God to expiate the sins of the people. Because he himself was tested through what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested.”

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. And God’s word reminds us Who Our Lord is for us: “He had to become like his (Abraham) brothers and sisters in every way, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest before God.” He knows everything about our nature, our weaknesses, our temptations and our limits. Therefore, “He is able to help those who are being tested.”

“A light of revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
