Into Your hands, O Lord, I commend myself and all I am

Into Your hands, O Lord, I commend myself and all I am

The destiny of Jesus was not determined by the cultivated and calculating wisdom of the world. It was moulded instead by the wisdom of God, which He Himself embodied since He was the Word of God become flesh.

Into Your hands, O Lord, I commend myself and all I am

St Catharine of Alexandria, virgin & martyr
Rev. 15:1-4; Ps. 97:1,2-3,7-8,9;
Lk. 21:12-19 (Ps Wk II)

Persecution and betrayal — no other promise of Jesus is as tangible as the Cross. But in this stark Gospel, there is a consolation far more profound than any false religion could promise, for what Jesus promises is no different from what He Himself underwent for our sake. We are promised a share in the destiny of Christ.

This destiny is not written in the horoscopic stars but in the providential care of the Father who will ensure that, no matter what persecution comes, we will not be harmed.

The destiny of Jesus was not determined by the cultivated and calculating wisdom of the world. It was moulded instead by the wisdom of God, which He Himself embodied since He was the Word of God become flesh.

For us, then, a share in the destiny of Jesus could mean an initiation into the whole mystery of Jesus Himself, where He gives us the words and the wisdom necessary to face the threat of the uncompromising world. In the light of this wisdom, patient endurance is not something passive, but an active constancy and fidelity to the Father, Son and Spirit who surround us with their care.

Into Your hands, O Lord, I commend myself and all I am.
