Look, my servant will succeed.    He will be exalted and lifted very high.Just as many were appalled by you,    he too appeared disfigured, inhuman,    his appearance unlike that of mortals.But he will astonish many nations.    Kings will be silenced because of him,    because they will see what they haven’t seen before;    what they haven’t heard before, they will ponder. Who can believeContinue reading “Good Friday”

Maundy Thursday

Before the Festival of Passover, Jesus knew that his time had come to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them fully.

Holy Wednesday

Here it is…

Jesus and his disciples were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, with Jesus in the lead. The disciples were amazed while the others following behind were afraid. Taking the Twelve aside again, he told them what was about to happen to him. “Look!” he said. “We’re going up to Jerusalem. The Human One will be handed over toContinue reading “Here it is…”

Which is better?

Because for me, living serves Christ and dying is even better. If I continue to live in this world, I get results from my work. But I don’t know what I prefer. I’m torn between the two because I want to leave this life and be with Christ, which is far better. However, it’s more important for meContinue reading “Which is better?”
