DG BookGospel: John 16:16-20
A little while, and you will see me no more; and then a little while, and you will see me.”
Some of the disciples wondered, “What does he mean by, ‘A little while, and you will not see me; and then a little while,
and you will see me’? And why did he say, ‘I go to the Father’?” And they said to one another, “What does he mean by ‘a little


while’? We don’t understand.” Jesus knew that they wanted to question him; so he said to them, “You are puzzled because I told you
that in a little while you will see me no more, and then a little while later you will see me. Truly, I say to you, you will weep and mourn while
the world rejoices. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn to joy.

 

Reflection:

 

When the world is madly after pursuit of happiness, Christianity
feels like killjoy. Why is it so? In the movie Hotel Rwanda
that tells the story of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Jack,
a journalist, plays back the horrible scenes of lynching
that he recorded, to some of the stunned officials of the
hotel. They ask Jack to send the footage immediately to the
international news channels so that the world will see and
respond. Jack pessimistically refuses commenting thus: “I
think that when people turn on their TVs and see this footage,
they'll say, ‘Oh my God, that's horrible,’ and then they'll go
back to eating their dinners.” Sad, but true! Yet, when the
‘world’ goes back to dinner, authentic Christians simply
cannot: They are compelled to share in the suffering of their
brethren and alleviate the same. They seem like killjoys, but they
have a joy that can never be taken away.
