DG BookGospel: John 3:31-36
He who comes from above is above all; he who comes from the earth belongs to the earth, and his words belong to the earth.
He who comes from heaven speaks of the things he has seen and heard; he bears witness to these things, but no one accepts

his testimony. Whoever does receive his testimony acknowledges the truthfulness of God. The one sent by God speaks God’s words,
and gives the Spirit unstintingly. The Father loves the Son and has entrusted everything into his hands. Whoever believes in the Son lives with
eternal life; but he who will not believe in the Son will never know life, and always faces the justice of God.”

 

Reflection:

 

The kind of courage and uncompromising obedience that
Peter and team display today is a cardinal trait that should define
the Church and her every member. However, it hasn’t always been the
case with us Christians in many places, unfortunately. Often, we
find an unfortunate collusion between human authorities and
the Church personnel that the Gospel falls through the gap.
Adopting the famous words of Carl von Clausewitz who said
“war is continuation of politics by other means,” Valson Thampu,
an academician, has observed that “Church administration is
doing politics by other means.” Of course, we have honorable
exceptions in individuals and several local churches. However,
what has become an exception today was the norm for Peter and
his early Church. And that is the norm we need to re-discover and
live up to. It calls for an absolute fidelity to the one coming from
above.
