Dear Friend in the Lord,
Jesus’ Prayer: In today’s Gospel, as Jesus’ Death was impending, He prays to His Father about the fulfilment of His Mission. . . and thanked Him for the fidelity of His disciples. Let us pray that our faith will grow to become stronger and wiser, in our following of Jesus as our Saviour and Lord, in our daily living.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said: ‘Father, the hour has come: glorify your Son so that your Son may glorify you; and, through the power over all mankind that you may have given him, let him give eternal life to all those you have entrusted to him. And eternal life is this: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
‘I have glorified you on earth and finished the work that you gave me to do. Now, Father, it is time for you to glorify me with that glory I had with you before ever the world was. I have revealed your name to the men you took from the world to give me, and they have kept your word. Now at last they know that all you have given me comes indeed from you; for I have given them the teaching you gave to me, and they have truly accepted this, that I came from you and have believed that it was you who sent me.’
