TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me.”

.

– John 14:6 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus is the Way to the Father

.

…through what He teaches;

.

…through faith, which He inspires;

.

…through His example;

.

…through His grace;

.

…and, above all, He is the Way because He reveals the Father,

with whom He is one because of His divine nature.

.

Jesus, the Son of God, is the Truth

because by coming to this world

He shows that God is faithful to His promises to those who do His will,

and because He teaches the truth about who God is.

.

Jesus is Life

because from all eternity He has divine life with His Father,

and because it is through Him

that we become sharers in that divine life.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"[By His reply, Jesus] is, as it were, saying,

‘By which route do you want to go? I am the Way.

To where do you want to go? I am the Truth.

Where do you want to remain? I am the Life.’

Every man can attain an understanding

of the Truth and the Life;

but not all find the Way.”

.

– St. Augustine

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life

– lead me, teach me, renew me!
