Christ Announces His Glorification


John 12:20-33


From the Navarre Bible commentary,

We know that “Jesus…is…a seed that” dies

“And thereby produces abundant fruit.”

He was humbled; then He was glorified.


Every suffering and contradiction

Shares Christ’s cross.  We’re redeemed and exalted.

When we die to ourselves without a thought

To our own comfort or desires and plans,

We’re supernaturally effective.


Christ fell three times on the walk to His death.

I threw three interceptions in one game.

Jesus rose from the dead to His glory.

I made Catholic All-American.
