Daily Word Of God
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. You know the way to the place where I am going.’
Thomas said, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus said: ‘I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.’

- Jesus is again reassuring us that our destination in life is eternal happiness in heaven.

- Pray for the graces we need to live a more focused life that does not squander the precious time and opportunities on mere superficialities, but to use them to live in God’s ways and prepare ourselves for eternal life with Him.
