THURSDAY OF THE SEVENTH WEEK OF EASTER, MAY 28, 2020


MASS READINGS:


A Gospel according to John 17:20:26


Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying:

“I pray not only for these,

but also for those who will believe in me through their word,

so that they may all be one,

as you, Father, are in me and I in you,

that they also may be in us,

that the world may believe that you sent me.

And I have given them the glory you gave me,

so that they may be one, as we are one,

I in them and you in me,

that they may be brought to perfection as one,

that the world may know that you sent me,

and that you loved them even as you loved me.

Father, they are your gift to me.

I wish that where I am they also may be with me,

that they may see my glory that you gave me,

because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

Righteous Father, the world also does not know you,

but I know you, and they know that you sent me.

I made known to them your name and I will make it known,

that the love with which you loved me

may be in them and I in them.”


REFLECTION: " Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me"


As we continue reading the Gospel according to John this week, we re-encounter the words of Jesus during the Last Supper.


How beautiful His words are today, pleading to God the Father on our behalf, so that we can join Him in Heaven and see Him in all His glory.


Jesus lovingly prays to His Father, "I made known to them your name and I will make it known, that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them."


Jesus knows He will make it known to His disciples, the LOVE He shares with His Father.


How will He do this?


He also says He will be IN them.


How is this possible?


This hope, this union with God will be complete in a few days, once the Advocate comes to us.


Pentecost is only a few days away. Join us in praying the Dekaena to the Holy Spirit day 8.
