(Exaltation of the Holy Cross)
St. Paul wrote that Jesus: humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that 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. Phil_2:6-11
Jesus said to Nicodemus: “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man. And 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_3:13-17
When we rely on human wisdom for the answers to the mysteries of life in Christ, then we are no more than dust in the wind. But when we recognize our need for God, our constant need for Jesus, then God will see that we have all the answers we need for the time at hand. This is our faith! And this is enough for us!
