Unmasking our own illusions of power

Palm Sunday, based on Philippians 2:5-11

Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross. Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

  1. Thank you so much for this preaching, Jimmy, which I really needed to hear at the beginning of Holy Week. I am grateful for your testimony through the use of your own authority as our provincial which lives up to what you preached. Thank you!!!

  2. Jim, I NEEDED to be carried by your reflection to move in / with a reality very new… Jesus reality enables me to face and live humbly in self emptying. This is my saving grace TO PUT ON IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH. So, I go…gratitude, Pat
