God knows what it is like not to be God....

Here is a quote from "Jesus and the Prodigal Son" that I have been mulling over and copied to be able to share it here.
"Morality is our human gift to God, enabling God to fulfill the hunger of love ...dying not just for us but with us. Unity between God's creation is only possible if God knows what it is like not to be God. This is the unimaginable kenosis, the self-emptying of the Incarnation...Jesus died loving. Therefore, he died whole. He died humanly. (Laurence Freeman, "Christian Meditation Newsletter", August 2003.)

That has much to make us reflect as we begin this new week.
