Dear Friend in the Lord,

Impending Death of Jesus”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus prayed that through His Death, He will glorify His Father.  Ponder on, “When we face death, we will find “Jesus’ Peace,” if we have known Him personally during our lifetime.  However, if we have been ‘strangers’ to and rejected Him, then our weak faith will not give us “His Peace.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 17:1-7

Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said: ‘Father, the hour has come: glorify your Son so that your Son may glorify you; so that, just as you have given him power over all humanity, he may 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 by finishing the work that you gave me to do. Now, Father, glorify me with that glory I had with you before ever the world existed. I have revealed your name to those whom you took from the world to give me. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now at last they have recognised that all you have given me comes from you.’
