DG BookGospel: John 14:6-14
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me. 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:

 

We must really thank Philip for asking a seemingly foolish
question, because his question led to some most profound
insights into the intimacy between Jesus and his Father, an
intimacy that is offered to us as well; and, as icing on the cake, a
blanket promise from Jesus that anything that we ask, calling
upon his name, he would do for us! We have other instances in
the Gospel as well, wherein the disciples ask some seemingly
absurd things, only to receive some precious words or act
of Jesus. Sample, for example, Thomas insisting on wanting to
see Jesus’ wounds and put his hand on his side (cf. Jn 20:25);
or, the disciples asking about whose sins were responsible for
the man to be born blind (cf. Jn 9: 2); or, Peter asking if forgiving
one’s brother seven times would be good enough (cf. Mt. 18:21).
What would be the one (foolish) question you want to ask Jesus
today?
