In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

The Gospel today presents a kind of paradox as we look at emptying ourselves in order to become full or dying so that we might live. Jesus tells us his hour has come, an hour that he has been waiting for, an hour seemingly contrary to an hour most people wait for as they prepare for an ...
