O Lord Thou shalt open my lips and my mouth shall declare Thy praise.

Obeying the Lord Who Obeys the Lord

Today is the Feast of the Circumcision of the Lord. In His Divinity, Christ makes the law; in His humanity, He must obey the law. By obeying the law, He teaches us obedience. By obeying the Father, He teaches us to obey the Father, for He came into the world to lead us to the Father and separate us from sin by His life-giving death.
