St. Paul explained to us how Jesus revealed his power through humility. He humbly assumed our human nature and then purified our human nature by his obedience to the Father. “He humbled himself, becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” This is a wonderful paradox. By his humble, human obedience Jesus revealed the glory of his divinity. “Because of this – Jesus’ humble obedience – God greatly exalted him.” The Lord’s humiliating obedience on the cross manifested his glory as the beloved son of God the Father. Jesus’ example not only showed us the way; by following Jesus in his obedience to the Father we become, even now, the glorious sons and daughters of God.

In the aftermath of the destruction, Bishop Jaime Soto offered Mass on Sunday, Sept. 20 in Sacred Heart Church in Fort Jones, for parishioners of Sacred Heart and All Saints Mission. "The communities of Fort Jones and Happy Camp were brokenhearted about the loss of their church," Bishop Soto said. "I grieved with them. While listening to their sorrows about losing their spiritual home, it was a consolation to hear the resilience of their faith and their enduring trust that the Good Shepherd would guide them through this tearful calamity."
