“When the days of Jesus’ being taken up were fulfilled, he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem, and he sent messengers ahead of him.”
“Resolutely”—a key adverb here as Jerusalem would later be the place of Jesus’ crucifixion and death.
What might have motivated Jesus to be so resolute about this journey?
What might help you be resolute about accepting something difficult?
Heritage word—”If we live by crosses, we shall die of love.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
