“…because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down on my own” (J 10:17-18).
How often do we blame the circumstances: “I had no time,” “to much work,” “he/she made me angry,” “my wife/husband did not support me” and so on. “No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own.” Everything looked as if they had taken His life from Him, but He was above the circumstances, He came to fulfill God’s will. He came to lead, to protect, to support and to love each of us.
“Christ, having risen from the dead, dies now no more, death will no longer have dominion over him, alleluia” (Entrance Antiphon)
