Dear Friend in the Lord,
God’s Revelation: In today’s Gospel, Jesus thanked His Father in prayer, for revealing the Divine Truth to “mere children”; i.e. believers with the humility and sincerity to know, love and serve Him. This is in contrast to the “learned and clever”; i.e. the scribes and Pharisees, who are proud, scheming and corrupt. What is Jesus saying to me?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to mere children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’
