Why can't we listen when the Father is asking us to do something? Why can't we just do His will and not grumble? It is because we don't trust Him. He has our very best in mind. We must discern which of the three spirits are at work in our hearts and respond with love to the Father's will.

This Sunday we celebrate the Exaltation of the Cross. The Cross is a call to intimacy with God. Jesus is saying from the Cross to us: "Look up! See what I have done for you!" Yet we grumble and complain with what we have been given like those in the first reading. Do we know the price Jesus has paid for us?

Love! What is love? St Paul speaks of love in the second reading and challenges us to love God and neighbor. But what kind of love? Our English language is so lacking in understanding of what kind of love.

St Paul challenges us in the 2nd reading to not be conformed to this world but be transformed into the life of Christ. How? Two ways: 1) we must come to know life with Jesus is more not less and 2) by entering the community of Christians who will model a transformed life.
