“While they were all amazed at his every deed, Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Pay attention to what I am telling you. The Son of Man is to be handed over to men.’” (LK 9: 43-44)
The law of Undulation: today glory, respect, enthusiasm-“they were all amazed at his every deed,” tomorrow-“the son of Man is to be handed over to men.” The same law of Undulation exists in us; one day we will give everything to Our Lord and the next we forget to even make a sign of the cross. I very much like the way in which S.C. Lewis wrote about this “law of Undulation” in The Screwtape Letters (Letter nr VIII you can read here: http://www.samizdat.qc.ca/arts/lit/PDFs/ScrewtapeLetters_CSL.pdf).
“Our Savior Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
