Dear Friend in the Lord,
Sincerity – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus praised Nathanael for being a person of great integrity and sincerity in his search for God. Pray to receive such virtues so that we too can grow in greater holiness in our relationship with Jesus. Through the archangels, we are assured of God’s Protective Love, Truth and Providence.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There, truly, is an Israelite in whom there is no deception.’ Nathanael asked, ‘How do you know me?’ Jesus replied, ‘Before Philip came to call you, I saw you under the fig tree.’ Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the king of Israel.’
Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You are going to see greater things than that.’ And then he added, ‘In all truth I tell you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending over the Son of man.’
