Palm Sunday

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 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 name,
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bend,
of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

Phillipians 2:6-11

I LOVE today's reading. St. Paul said it beautifully when he wrote that God never inteded to be comprehended by man. Perhaps athiests missed that point or were never intoduced to it.

Truly, His ways are not ours.

For an amazing painting of the Crucifiction, go visit Rita. She also has an explanation accompanying the image.

I love the reading too. I just wrote a paper for my class on Jesus emptying Himself. It was a profound study to ready myself for it.
