“After this, aware that everything was now finished, in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled, Jesus said, ‘I thirst.’” (JN 19: 28)
“I thirst”—from the human being perspective–Our Lord asked for something to quench His thirst, but from God’s perspective He calls us to answer to quench His thirst for love. You are called to be spouses, to be parents, and Your vocation is all about love. Your spouse is thirsty for love, your children are thirsty for love, your relatives and your friends are thirsty for love. Different loves—different ways to express, but the same “thirst” which needs to be quenched.
“Christ became obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every other name.” (Gospel Acclamation)
