Dear Friend in the Lord,

Our Place in Heaven” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures His disciples, “I am going to prepare a place for you in heavenTrust in God and in Me.”  Ponder on, “Are our deepest desires focused on living our faith, hope and love for God, so that we can get into heaven after we die?  Or, will we ‘worry’ about this, only when we are about to die?  Will this be leaving things too late?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 14:1-6

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. You trust in God, trust also in me. In my Father’s house there are many places to live in; otherwise I would have told you. I am going now to prepare a place for you, and after I have gone and prepared you a place, I shall return to take you to myself, so that you may be with me where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.’

Thomas said, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus said: I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.’
