This morning during prayer before Mass began, I felt like prostrating myself before God to become totally submissive to him. Today "submissive" is not a welcome word to many. The mind associates it with "being subservient or weak," "lowering your self-esteem," "losing face," or even "slavery." Now, it all depends upon whom you submit yourself to. If you are submissive to yourself, then that's being self-centered. If you submit yourself to another human being, it could be humiliating or you may lose your freedom. But I am talking about submitting yourself to the loving God who can set you free! Therefore, "submission" can be a beautiful thing.
