“Jesus holds a perpetual priesthood…he has the full power to save those who approach God through him, since he lives forever to intercede for them” (Hebrews 7:24-25).
Reflection: In the heights of heaven, where he sits at the right hand of the Father, what does Jesus do? Scripture tells us that, sharing our human nature, he constantly intercedes for us. He presents to the Father the dignity of our humanity, that it may be filled with the life of God.
Prayer: Lord, give us confidence that we can always approach you, from the darkness of this valley of death, as you intercede, in your humanity, for ours. Amen.
