  • Easter 5th Week : Sunday 7th May, 2023

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.

John 14:1-3,6-7,11-12

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.

‘I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father too. From this moment you know him and have seen him.

‘You must believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe it on the evidence of these works. In all truth I tell you, whoever believes in me will perform the same works as I do myself, and will perform even greater works, because I am going to the Father.’
