(St. Catherine of Siena, Virgin and Doctor of the Church)
Jesus said “just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.” Jn 3:7b-15
As Referenced from: Nu 21:6-9 –
seraph serpents bit the people so that many of the Israelites died. Then the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned in complaining against the LORD and you. Pray to the LORD to take the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people, and the LORD said to Moses: Make a seraph and mount it on a pole, and everyone who has been bitten will look at it and recover. Accordingly Moses made a bronze serpent and mounted it on a pole, and whenever the serpent bit someone, the person looked at the bronze serpent and recovered.
Look up to Jesus, beloved; lifted up in crucifixion, lifted in resurrection, lifted in ascension, lifted in our hearts and minds and worship . . . and be healed for eternity!
