The writer of the Letter to the Hebrews stresses that we become holy through Jesusí offering of himself to the Father in total trust. Jesusí surrender to the Father can be seen not only in his death but throughout his life: in the poverty of his birth; in the hidden and humble life of his childhood and youth and throughout his active ministry with its focus on the poor and the marginalised. Our own holiness springs from our union with Jesus in his self-offering love. How am I sharing in Jesus self-offering love in all that I am and do?
