Readings: Isaiah 49:3, 5-6; 1 Corinthians 1:1-3; John 1:29-34
We are a frail people. And yet, despite our failings and weaknesses, when we embrace Jesus, we also embrace the truth that He sums up: All people are precious in the eyes of God. The dignity of every human being are worthy of our greatest efforts of advocacy, even if we fail and far short. We must get back to it and be the giant for others because we have been consecrated in Christ Jesus. We are called to be a holy people.
