Great post! and timely, well worth the read!
Have in you the same attitude that is also in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. — Phil 2:5-8
This Sunday is the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The readings can be found here. The second reading contains one of my favorite passages (cited above) about the attributes of the triune God. The term use to describe the passage is kenosis, which comes from the Greek word for emptying. It means the self-emptying’ of one’s own will and becoming entirely receptive to God’s divine will.
