Abba Father glorified Jesus through the Cross.

Father, I glorified You on earth by doing the work You gave me. 

"Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Give glory to your son, so that your son may glorify you, just as you gave him authority over all people, so that your son may give eternal life to all you gave him.

"Now this is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ. I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do. Now glorify me, Father, with you, with the glory that I had with you before the world began.

“I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.

"Now they know that everything you gave me is from you, because the words you gave to me I have given to them, and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from you, and they have believed that you sent me.

"I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for the ones you have given me, because they are yours, and everything of mine is yours and everything of yours is mine, and I have been glorified in them.

"And now I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, while I am coming to you.” (John 17: 1 - 11a).

Tuesday 23rd May 2023 7th Week in the Easter Season. 

Our daily Scripture verse today is the High Priestly Prayer, part of the Farewell Discourse. 

Jesus Christ glorified the Father through the Cross by overcoming evil.The Father glorified His Son through the Resurrection. The Cross is the ordained means of our salvation.  (CCC 272).

Jesus embraced the pain and humiliation of the Cross so that we may be free. 

Those who are chosen and called for eternal life are justified by faith in the atoning work of Jesus and glorified by the Cross. 

We accept to embrace the inevitable trials in our lives. Rejection of the Cross is rejection of Jesus Christ.

We adore You O Christ and worship You. Because of Your holy Cross, You redeemed the world.
