it struck me today when reading the thanksgiving prayer that Jesus died to draw the whole world to himself. In the pryaer we are called to 'walk in the way of the cross and share its weight'. I was really impressed that as we walk we are declare the love God has for the world, but we are also called to walk in the way of the cross and as Jesus died on the cross we are to be prepared to sacrifice for others -perhaps unto death - so that they may be directed and united to God.
Blessed are you, Lord God of our salvation,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief
your only Son was lifted up
that he might draw the whole world to himself.
May we walk this day in the way of the cross
and always be ready to share its weight,
declaring your love for all the world.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
AllBlessed be God for ever.
