Weekly Devotion – October 22ndWeekly Devotions
Jesus leads by being a servant. He affirms His teachings by picking up the cross and shedding His blood so that we might have life and have it to the full. Jesus drinks of the cup of suffering so as to show His followers the path to true greatness. Leaders of nations often act as tyrants to get their way, oppressing their subjects and manipulating their followers. Jesus proposes the model of servant-leadership, kneeling to wash the feet of His followers and stretching out His arms upon the cross to accomplish His mission of redemption. Those who seek to lead others in this world can do no better than to follow the example of Jesus and to extend themselves in selfless service to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
We pray together: St. Jude, as a servant of God, help me to humbly help others and deliver His love and essence to everyone I meet.
