Isaiah 49:1-6

My Beloved, it boggles the mind that the only Son of God was called to become a Servant in order to reveal the love of God as Father to us. Pride has no place in the hearts of those who desire to imitate You who chose the way of service, humility and obedience. You took on a Body of flesh becoming incarnate in the womb of the Virgin who as God's Eternal Word reposed eternally in Him. You came into the world to make the Word that was with God, in God and was God known to us and in knowing the Word, receiving It, loving It we would be saved.

God sent You into the world to recover what was stolen and the only acceptable way was to not only pay the price but to also receive in Yourself the sins that drew us away from the Father. You became the sin and the Victim offered in Sacrifice. In this holocaust of suffering and death, You negated the power of sin and removed the sting of death thus winning the victory for all mankind.

You are now the Light of the nations and Your salvation embraces everyone everywhere.
