I remember as a child hearing the praise song
"Lift Jesus higher,
lift Jesus higher,
lift him up for the world to see.
He said if I be lifted up
from the earth
I will draw all men unto me."
We used to sing that in our praise time when I was involved in the Charismatic Renewal. It is a beautiful and simple song that expresses what Jesus says in today's gospel
"When you lift up the Son of Man,
then you will realize that I AM."
Seeing is believing, they say. Seeing him lifted up on the Cross, may our Faith be strong in his power and glory as God. And may we always be one with him in glory.
