In this Sunday’s gospel the themes of glorification, shame and love are presented to us. Perhaps, you may be tempted to think that these values are really for the ‘goody two-shoes’ or the ‘really holy prayer warriors’ among us.
But, let’s carefully consider how events right in our own space call us to form an opinion about which side of the divide will influence our choices and how love as the preferred choice helps everyone to fare well.
The glorification story reference is not of the distant future, but NOW. Now is the time when we’re called to open our eyes, minds and hearts to the truth that the previously thought ‘shame’ of the Cross really is love unbridled.
