DG BookGospel: John 14:27-31a
Peace be with you! My peace I give to you; not as the world gives peace do I give it to you. Do not be troubled! Do
not be afraid! You heard me say, ‘I am going away, but I am coming to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I go
to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. I have told you this now before it takes place, so that when it does happen


you may believe. There is very little left for me to tell you, for the prince of this world is at hand, although there is nothing in me that he
can claim. But see, the world must know that I love the Father, and that I do what the Father has taught me to do. Come now, let us go.

 

Reflection:

 

Authentic, mature, true love lets go of the beloved. To
cling to the other is a sign of immaturity, insecurity, and the
dread of losing the other. There are parents who love their
children “so much” that they cannot even think of letting
them move to another city; or couples who cannot bear the
absence of each other, even for a day. The truth is, sooner or later,
we get suffocated within such relationship, we grow stunted,
and we break up. The same applies to our
relationship with God as well. Jesus tells the disciples: “If you
loved me, you would be glad that I go.” To Mary Magdalene
he says, “Do not cling to me” (Jn 20: 17). And, once we let the
other “be”, the other comes back to us in freedom and in greater
presence. As Jesus says, “I am going away, but I am coming to
you.” If only we let God be!
