THE EXALTATION OF THE HOLY CROSS, BIBLE READING II (PHILIPPIANS 2:6-11)

17 Sep

HE HUMBLED HIMSELF, THEREFORE GOD RAISED HIM HIGH.

The state of Jesus Christ was divine,
yet he did not cling
to his equality with God
but emptied himself
to assume the condition of a slave,
and became as men are;
and being as all men are,
he was humbler yet,
even to accepting death,
death on a cross.

But God raised him high
and gave him the name
which is above all other names
so that all beings
in the heavens, on earth and in the underworld,
should bend the knee at the name of Jesus
and that every tongue should acclaim
Jesus Christ as Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
