Malta Minute with the Catechism: To Do the Will of the Father

  • Program #: 57
  • Description: Why did the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity leave his magnificent residence in heaven at the right hand of the Father? To do the will of the Father, the Catholic Catechism tells us. He assumed flesh and blood, voluntarily joining his divinity to humanity to accomplish his mission and that mission was to "serve and give his life as a ransom for many," says the Catechism. Such was his sustenance. "My food," Jesus proclaimed, "is to do the will of Him who sent me." He disdained any suggestion he abandon the dual role of Paschal Lamb and Suffering Servant who "silently allows himself to be led to the slaughter", as the Catechism phrases it. "Shall I not, Jesus asks, "drink the cup the Father has given me?" This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta's Minute with the Catechism.
