Ultimate Abandonment

        In today's Gospel reading from John 3, John the Baptist told his disciples that the Christ had come after him and added, "He must increase; I must decrease." Indeed, we must let Christ increase to 100% and ourselves decrease to zero. This is abandoning ourselves to God, letting God have his way. To be able to let God do whatever he wants with us is to be free indeed.
