Dear Friend in the Lord,
Jesus’ Love – Disciples: In today’s Gospel, Jesus pleads His Father to “. . . consecrate them (His disciples) in the Truth; Your Word is Truth.” All of us are disciples of Jesus in today’s world; consecrated during our Sacrament of Confirmation. Do we live the Truth of Jesus’ Gospel or do we live a superficial life of materialistic concerns?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
John 17:11b, 15-19
Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said, ‘Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us.
‘I am not asking you to remove them from the world, but to protect them from the evil one. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world, and for their sake I consecrate myself so that they too may be consecrated in truth.’
