Subiecti invicem in timore Christi (Eph 5:21).

Be subordinate out of reverence for Christ.

 To be obedient is not an easy thing to do. Nonetheless, Jesus Christ and his Blessed Mother gave us and examples of obedience in their lives. Mary was subordinate when she heard the voice of the angel and her Son was obedient to the point of his cross. They supported and encouraged one another. Thus the Son was strong because he had a faithful Mother. And his Mother could survive many hardships because her Son went ahead of her and had suffered a lot. Similarly, each of us is called to be obedient and as a result strong in one's life. The reason is that all of us have our God who guides and loves us very much. Furthermore, he is always ready to offer himself over for us in every eucharist and to cleanse us with his holy words of reconciliation. Consequently, we are supposed to present ourselves in splendor and divine might. For we are able to become holy and without any blemish. As obedient children of God we are invited to participate in the Kingdom of Heaven yet on the earth.
