– We lift them up to the Lord.
“And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.” (J 3:13-15)
Believers may have eternal life, not thinkers, workers or devotees alone. The believer lifts up the Son of Man in his/her life, so that they can see Him in every moment; not only when they think about God or do something for Him, or pray to Him. The believer receives life every day as a gift and opportunity to have eternal life from Him. The believer looks for every occasion to become closer to Our Lord, to look at Him and to follow Him.
“When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself, says the Lord.” (Communion Antiphon)
