Divine Gifts: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that His Father’s union with Him as Son is equal and inseparably one.  Eternal Salvation is offered as a gift to those who believe and live in this Truth.  Is our faith in the Triune God strong even in times of pain and trials?  Pray for the grace of fidelity during such trying times, like the present coronavirus pandemic outbreak.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 3:31-36

John the Baptist said to his disciples: ‘He who comes from above is above all others; he who is of the earth is earthly himself and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven bears witness to the things he has seen and heard, but his testimony is not accepted by anybody; though anyone who does accept his testimony is attesting that God is true, since he whom God has sent speaks God’s own words, for God gives him the Spirit without reserve.

‘The Father loves the Son and has entrusted everything to his hands. Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life, but anyone who refuses to believe in the Son will never see life: God’s retribution hangs over him.’
