Feast of Saints Philip and James, Apostles
Jesus said to Thomas, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.
If you know me, then you will also know my Father.
From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
Philip said to him,
“Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time
and you still do not know me, Philip?
Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own.
The Father who dwells in me is doing his works.
Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me,
or else, believe because of the works themselves.
Amen, amen, I say to you,
whoever believes in me will do the works that I do,
and will do greater ones than these,
because I am going to the Father.
And whatever you ask in my name, I will do,
so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.”
Dear Father your Son is revealed to us as "The Way, the Truth, and the Life," by his own words. How many times he has said that you and he are one. And how often he mentions to us to go through him and believe. Because if we see Him we see you and when we know Jesus we also know you. Today, I ask in faith, in Jesus name, for the conversion of hardened hearts. I pray for a renewal of faith in the World. May today be a day where many know the love of your heart. Amen
