Allow your breathing to slow. With each relaxing breath, feel yourself come to rest in the Lord.
"Now, I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do."
In this Scripture we are given a clear directive. Follow the model of Jesus' life. We can serve as Jesus served. We can forgive as Jesus forgave. We can pray as Jesus prayed. We can heal as Jesus healed. We can embrace and bless and love as Jesus did. We can look to the Father as Jesus did. In other words, we can "put on Christ."
As we enter these sacred days of Triduum, how might you live this Gospel passage?
How has this Lenten season helped you to model your life on Jesus' life?
(Pray using this prayer or one of your own.)
Loving God, grace me with what I need to be like Jesus in the world.
