The second reading this weekend is from St. Paul to the Philippians. It is a great summary of what we are celebrating from this Sunday through to Easter Sunday. ‘His state was divine, yet Christ Jesus did not cling to his equality with God but emptied himself to assume the condition of a slave, and became as men are, and being as all men are, he was humbler yet, even to accepting death, death on a cross.” The humility of Christ brings victory over sin and death and brings forgiveness and resurrection. This week, Holy Week, leads us to the moment of when Jesus dies for us and through that moment and the quietness of Holy Saturday brings us to the moment of his resurrection when “God raised him high and gave him the name which is above all other names so that all beings.. should bend the knee at the name of Jesus and that every tongue should acclaim Jesus Christ as Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
