Bernard: O taste and see

Tuesday, May 23, 2017
    Commemoration of Petroc, Abbot of Padstow, 6th century
    Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
    —Philippians 2:5-11 (NIV)
    Jesus is honey in the mouth, music in the ear, a song of gladness in the heart.
    ... Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153), On the love of God, Newman Press, 1951, p. 110 (see the book)
    See also Phil. 2:5-11; Isa. 42:1-3; 45:23-25; Matt. 28:18; Heb. 1:6; Rev. 4:9-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, it shall be so.
