Dear Friend in the Lord,
Children of God: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to Nicodemus that we are all called to be Baptised by Water and in the Holy Spirit, that transform us into children of God. Ponder on, “The gift of faith that offers the divine gift of Eternal Life is the greatest gift we receive on earth. Are we nurturing this precious gift daily?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
There was one of the Pharisees called Nicodemus, a leading Jews, who came to Jesus by night and said, ‘Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who comes from God; for no one could perform the signs that you do unless God were with him.’
Jesus answered: ‘I tell you sloemnly, unless a man is born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’ Nicodemus said, ‘How can a grown man be born? An he go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?’
Jesus replied: ‘I tell you solemnly, unless a man is born through water and the Spirit; he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Do not be surprised when I say: You must be born from above. The wind blows wherever it pleases; you hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. That is how it is with all who are born of the Spirit.’
