Holiness in Obedience

Obedience is a mystery both for our mind and life. It attracts as a radical attitude to fulfill the will of God in its totality. It frightens because of the fear that it might involve surrender of the autonomy of one's personality to another person. Obedience has its justification in the faith, and draws its strength from the same. In this light, religious obedience appears as participation in the mystery of the obedience of Christ. Again, in the same light, obedience is seen as a perfect self-gift to God, a sacrament of communion with the will of God, an instrument of salvation. So it was in Christ who through his obedience entered in communion with the Father and shared in the divine plan of salvation.
