‘Lay Our Lives Like Palms Before Him’


Andrew of Crete was archbishop at the end of the 7th century. Here’s a thought of his for Holy Week:

So let us spread before his feet, not garments or soulless olive branches, which delight the eye for a few hours and then wither; but ourselves, clothed in his grace, or rather, clothed completely in him. We who have been  baptized into Christ must ourselves be the garments that we spread before him.–St. Andrew of Crete
