Daily Gospel (1487)

dglogoGospel: Jn 14:15-21 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”If you love me, you will keep my commandments; and I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper to be with you forever, the Spirit of truth whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he is with you, and will be in you.

dglogoGospel: Jn 15:18-21 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”If the world hates you, remember that the world hated me before you. This would not be so if you belonged to the world, because the world loves its own. But you are not of the world, since I have chosen you from the world; because of this the world hates you.
     ”Remember what I told you: the servant is not greater than his master; if they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will keep yours as well. All this they will do to you on account of my name, because they do not know the One who sent me.”

dglogoGospel: Jn 15:12-17 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”This is my commandment: Love one another as I have loved you! There is no greater love than this, to give one‘s life for one‘s friends; and you are my friends, if you do what I command you.
     ”I shall not call you servants anymore, because servants do not know what their master is about. Instead, I have called you friends, since I have made known to you everything I learned from my Father.

dglogoGospel: Jn 15:9-11 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Remain in my love! You will remain in my love if you keep my commandments, just as I have kept my Father‘s commandments and remain in his love!
”I have told you all this, that my own joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete.”

dglogoGospel: Jn 15:1-8 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”I am the true vine and my Father is the vine grower. If any of my branches doesn‘t bear fruit, he breaks it off; and he prunes every branch that does bear fruit, that it may bear even more fruit.
    ”You are already made clean by the word I have spoken to you. Live in me as I live in you. The branch cannot bear fruit by itself, but has to remain part of the vine; so neither can you, if you don‘t remain in me.

dglogoGospel: Jn 14:27-31a -
      Jesus said to his disciples: ”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.

dglogoGospel: Jn 14:21-26 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”Whoever keeps my commandments is the one who loves me. If he loves me, he will also be loved by my Father; I too shall love him and show myself clearly to him.”
    Judas—not Judas Iscariot—asked Jesus, ”Lord, how can it be that you will show yourself clearly to us and not to the world?” Jesus answered him, ”If anyone loves me, he will keep my word and my Father will love him; and we will come to him and live with him. But if anyone does not love me, he will not keep my words; and these words that you hear are not mine, but the Father‘s who sent me.

dglogoGospel: Jn 14:1-12 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”Do not be troubled! Trust in God and trust in me! In my Father‘s house there are many rooms; otherwise, I would not have told you that I go to prepare a place for you. After I have gone and prepared a place for you, I shall come again and take you to me, so that where I am, you also may be. Yet you know the way where I am going.”

dglogoGospel: Jn 14:7-14 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”If you know me, you will know the Father also; indeed you know him, and you have seen him.”
    Philip asked him, ”Lord, show us the Father, and that is enough.” Jesus said to him, ”What! I have been with you so long and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever sees me sees the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father‘? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
     ”All that I say to you, I do not say of myself. The Father who dwells in me is doing his own work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; at least believe it on the evidence of these works that I do.
    ”Truly, I say to you, the one who believes in me will do the same works that I do; and he will even do greater than these, for I am going to the Father. Everything you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Indeed, anything you ask, calling upon my name, I will do it.”

REFLECTION:
     What Philip was asking borders on the extraordinary. For in the mentality of the Jews, no one sees the face of God and live. Yet here now in our gospel is Philip having the temerity to request Jesus to show them the Father. This shows the success of Jesus, by His words and actions, in changing the mindset of His disciples. The Father is not a remote, inaccessible and stern God who can only be approached in holy terror, but a loving and doting Father who revels in sharing His love to His creatures.
     Yet this same Philip have missed a truth that has always been there. This Master who relates lovingly to the Father is the actual human face of the Father. Thus to see Jesus is to see the real Father. Jesus and the Father indwells in each other. This substantive unity while preserving the Person of each other attests to the tremendous power of love. It unites without dissolving one to the other. And so Philip has actually seen the Father in Jesus Christ. But he has to be made aware of this. Another mystery has been revealed to the Apostles that day. Jesus gently initiates them into the fullness of the mystery of His life.

dglogoGospel: Jn 14:1-6 -
     Jesus said to his disciples: ”Do not be troubled! Trust in God and trust in me! In my Father‘s house there are many rooms; otherwise, I would not have told you that I go to prepare a place for you. After I have gone and prepared a place for you, I shall come again and take you to me, so that where I am, you also may be. Yet you know the way where I am going.”
     Thomas said to him, ”Lord, we don‘t know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus said, ”I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.”
