Dear Friend in the Lord,
Knowing God our Father through the Son: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims, “If you know Me; you will know My Father too.” Ponder on, “We all need to continue to pray for the Holy Spirit to enlighten us; to deepen our faith in God our Father, through Jesus’ Words of Wisdom, miracles and life.” Do we spend quality prayer time daily to know Jesus more personally?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.’
‘Anyone who loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make a home in him. Anyone who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not my own: it is the word of the Father who sent me. I have said these things to you while still with you; but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you.’
