DG BookGospel: John 16:20-23
Truly, I say to you, you will weep and mourn whileTruly, I say to you, you will weep
and mourn whilethe world rejoices. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrowwill turn to
joy. A woman in childbirth is in distress becauseher time is at hand. But after the child is born, she
no longerremembers her suffering because of her great joy: a humanbeing is born into the world.

You feel sorrowful now, but I will see you again, and yourhearts will rejoice; and no one will take
your joy from you.When that day comes you will not ask me anything. Truly, Isay to you, whatever
you ask the Father in my name, he willgive you.

Reflection

My Roots and My Destiny is aMy Roots and My Destiny is abook that contains the diarywritings of
a little orphan Indiangirl who was adopted by aBelgian family. As an adult, JulieHendrix returns to
India twice,in search of her mother and herroots. The searing pain of thesearch she captures in this
linepoignantly: “I am giving birth tomy mother.”

Aren’t we all called to bemothers, giving birth to God? We are like the woman inchildbirth who “is in
distressbecause her time is at hand”—to give birth to God in the world.As in any childbirth, it
involvessearing pain, sorrow, and tears.Yet, a mother looks forward tothis moment, embraces
this moment of sorrow as a momentof grace; because, this sorrow isnot a negative one, but a lifegiving,
creative one. It is a sorrowthat would soon be transformedinto joy. It is the very birthing ofjoy itself.
And this is our vocationon earth.
