Dear Friend in the Lord,

Consecrated in the Truth” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus prays, “Father, consecrate them (disciples) in the Truth; Your Word is Truth.  I have sent them into the world.”  Ponder on, “Jesus prays very hard for His Father’s Protection on us; from the ‘hatred of the world’ that wants to destroy our faith and His Church.  We need to pray and receive the Sacraments regularly and fervently.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 17:20-24

Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said: ‘I pray not only for these but also for those who through their teaching will come to believe in me. May they all be one, just as, Father, you are in me and I am in you, so that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe it was you who sent me. I have given them the glory you gave to me, that they may be one as we are one. With me in them and you in me, may they be so perfected in unity that the world will recognise that it was you who sent me and that you have loved them as you have loved me.

‘Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, so that they may always see my glory which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.’
