 "But Jesus said to them (James and John), Have you the strength to drink of the cup I am to drink of, to be baptised with the baptism I am to be baptised with?  They said to him, We have".  (Mark 10:38-39)

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.  Because by Your Holy Cross, You have brought new life to the world.

Christ's Life

The Lord who made and rules the universe, falls under the weight of the cross but rises again.  You stood amidst the people to preach the peace, joy and justice of your Father, and fell on your knees to be in prayerful union.  You were ready to renew your baptism and your faithfulness to the Will of Your Father, even till this moment when you have to rise again on your way to Calvary.

Our Lives

We are all baptised but are we ready to drink the cup of suffering that Jesus is offering us each day.  We are being challenged continuously each time we approach the Eucharistic table of renewal.  We need to be strengthened through prayer and fasting to commit ourselves to the life of Jesus.  We are called to be a Communion of Communities and to live our baptism in a new way in the world.

My Prayer

Lord Jesus, help me to recognise my brokenness and to see the need to seek reconciliation with my brothers and sisters each time I fall.  Help me accept my weakness and limitations and have the humility to bear with the weaknesses of the members of my family and my Church.
