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

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

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

No one can come to the Father except through me.”

.

– John 14:6 (NLT)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus is the Way to the Father

.

…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;

.

…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,

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. […]

.

Make your way contemplating His humility

and you will reach God”

.

– St. Augustine

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

O most gracious God,

to trust in You above all things, is all I need.

.

How foolish I am whenever I put You aside

to seek immediate comfort from worldly distractions.

.

Dear Lord,

help me stop expecting my consolation to come immediately.

Help me stop seeking earthly solace here and now in the things of this world.

.

Lord,

You are the Only Way,

You are the Real Truth,

You are Eternal Life.

.

Here I am, Lord, lead me, teach me and enrich me, Lord, with Your grace.

.

Amen.
