Pondering Two Cups: Salvation And Wrath

Two Cups

As I sit and pray during this Palm Sunday at Holy Mass, after receiving our Lord, my mind turned to the Cup of Salvation.

What exactly is the Cup of Salvation, I pondered.

As I sat in prayer, my heart grabbed on to Life in Christ. The Cup of Salvation being the Cup of Life given to the only begotten Son. His Life! As I pondered more, the cup of wrath came to my thoughts. Wrath being what comes to us, when we do not live in Christ. When we do our own will. When we disregard the other. This came, as we have free will, with a choice to make.  Wrath? Or Salvation?

I pondered more deeply, how wrath has been my way (sinfulness) in this world without our Lord, and how Salvation is what we work on as we continue to drink His cup. As we take on His Life, passing over our own, therefore with His joy and His peace, the wrath we deserve, has already been paid.

Thank you Lord, I love You too.

Palm Sunday 2019

 “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.” John 12:23

Let us remember this holy week, to always sing  Hosanna in the highest! and refrain from chanting Crucify Him!, daily in our dealings with others. May we remember always the face of our Lord, keeping Him always in mind, body and spirit. Let us go with Him to the cross, and be crucified with our Suffering Messiah in Love with Him.
