Holy Monday--What does Holy Mean, Anyway?

HOLY MONDAY!  The idea of the Holy comes to us from the Jews. "Kadosh" is the hebrew.God is "Hakadosh", not his name but a descriptuon. Holiness is differentiation from the common, the habitual, the profane; the Holy is awe-inspiring, terrible, dreadful. "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Hosts" (Isaiah 6:3).
Now translate that into Jesus  and you can begin to imagine the utter and incomprehensible mystery of the Incarnation, and the unspeakable love of a God who displayed the humility of Christ.
