I will praise you, Lord, in the assembly of your people. — Psalm 2:26
Mass Readings: Philippians 2:5-11 / Luke 14:15-24
Later today — Election Day, 2012 — our newly-elected officials will be named in online and print publications, on TV and radio broadcasts, and on tweets, blogs, and social networks. We Americans are political animals. We love our winners, even if we dislike long, expensive, negative political campaigns. Today’s stunning reading from Philippians, however, reminds us that only one name — “Jesus”—will endure beyond every election cycle.
Jesus is the name eternally exalted by God. In fact, someday, every knee — every person who ever lived — will bend in adoration of Jesus. Every tongue will confess or concede His Lordship. But, not because Jesus won elections or popularity polls! Consider this: Jesus, the Son of God, will be exalted because He “humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.”
Prayer: Jesus, remind me to honor and exalt Your wonderful name above all others, every day.
