01-11-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

January 11, 2017
Since the children share in blood and Flesh, Jesus likewise shared in them, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the Devil, and free those who through fear of death had been subject to slavery all their life.  Heb_2:14-18

This is one of those perfect Scriptures to study through Lectio Divina.  Because the more we read it and reflect on this one sentence, the more we come to know who Jesus is and who we are.  And in learning who we are and what Jesus has come to offer us, the less we will live in slavery to anything or anyone, especially death and fear; and the more we will live in the Freedom of Christ and the Kingdom that He came to offer us!

We might just start with thinking about what death really is and how it has led our entire lives into slavery!

And then remember that Jesus has conquered that slippery, slimy entity and there is no more need to fear death because Jesus LIVES and so will we!
