“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 14:6

.

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,

who He reveals

and with whom He is one because of His divine nature.

.

Jesus is the Way to the Father also

.

…through what He teaches,

for by keeping to His teaching we will reach Heaven;

.

…through faith, which He inspires,

because He came to this world

so “that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life” (Jn 3:15);

.

…through His example,

since no one can go to the Father without imitating the Son;

.

…through His merits,

which make it possible for us to enter our Heavenly home;

.

.

Jesus, the Son of God, is the Truth

because by coming to this world

He shows that God is faithful to His promises,

and because He teaches the truth about who God is

and tells us that true worship must be “in spirit and truth” (Jn 4:23).

.

.

He is the Life

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

and because He makes us, through grace, sharers in that divine life.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“[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.

.

The wise of this world realise that God is eternal life and knowable truth; but the Word of God, who is Truth and Life joined to the Father,

has become the Way by taking a human nature.

.

Make your way contemplating His humility

and you will reach God”

.

– St. Augustine

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, You are the Only Way, the Real Truth, and the Eternal Life.

Enrich me, Lord, with Your grace!
