Taking the form of a slave

September 14, 2018 6:00 am

“Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.” (PHIL 2: 6-8)

Our Lord “took the form of a slave” to serve us, to bring us closer to Him and to His Heavenly Father and finally to save us, “becoming obedient to death” and taking us to Heaven. When we serve and when we are givers of selves, we imitate Him and we make the lives of our brothers and sisters happier.

“We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your Cross you have redeemed the world.” (Gospel Acclamation)
