"For the son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."
As I was browsing on the internet earlier I found a web site that offers the free service of generating ransom notes. You type in a text and hit the enter button and out pops this note that looks like the multicolored ransom notes you might see in the movies.
A ransom note generator. What a concept! I wonder what a ransom note for salvation would look like?
We look to the first reading and hear those words spoken by the author of Sirach, "Come to our Aid, O God of the universe,look upon us, show us the light of your mercies...Give new signs work new wonders."
It is cry for ransom.
"For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Ransom in greek means to liberate from misery, to set free, to release the captives.
To liberate from misery...Christ comes as ransom to restore to our life the joy and fullness we were suppose ot have. Today be not miserable but embrace the freedom gain for the ransom has been paid.
