Above Every Name

As we follow Christ during these days, we monks will sing the following antiphon in Latin many times, as if the repetition were a reminder. 

Christ became obedient for us unto death,
even to the death, death on the cross.
Therefore God exalted Him and gave Him a name
which is above all names.

Jesus is the Name above every other name; we try to follow him in obedience and self-emptying love- relentless, ordinary and hidden.
