DG BookGospel: John 6:35-40
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall never be hungry, and whoever believes in
me shall never be thirsty. Nevertheless, as I said, you refuse to believe, even when you have seen. Yet all those whom the
Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me, I shall not turn away. For I have come from heaven, not to do

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?

DG BookGospel: John 6:22-29
Next day, the people, who had stayed on the other side, realized that only one boat had been there, and that
Jesus had not entered it with his disciples; but rather, the disciples had gone away alone. Other boats from Tiberias
landed near the place where all these people had eaten the bread. When they saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples

DG BookGospel: John 21:1-19
After this, Jesus revealed himself to the disciples by the Lake of Tiberias. He appeared to them in this way: Simon
Peter, Thomas who was called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee and two other disciples were
together; and Simon Peter said to them, “I’m going fishing.” They replied, “We will come with you.” And they went out

DG BookGospel: John 6:16-21
When evening came, the disciples went down to the shore. After a while, they got into a boat to make for Capernaum on the other side
of the sea, for it was now dark and Jesus had not yet come to them. But the sea was getting rough because a strong wind was blowing.

DG BookGospel: John 6:1-15
After this, Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, near Tiberias, and large crowds followed him, because of the miraculous signs they saw,
when he healed the sick. So he went up into the hills and sat down there with his disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand.
Then lifting up his eyes, Jesus saw the crowds that were coming to him, and said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread so that these people may eat?”

DG BookGospel: John 3:31-36
He who comes from above is above all; he who comes from the earth belongs to the earth, and his words belong to the earth.
He who comes from heaven speaks of the things he has seen and heard; he bears witness to these things, but no one accepts

DG BookGospel: John 3:16-21
Yes, God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but may have eternal life. God did not send the Son
into the world to condemn the world; instead, through him the world is to be saved. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned. He who does not

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.

DG BookGospel: John 3:7b-15
Don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again from above.’ The wind blows where it pleases and you hear its sound,
but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going. It is like that with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus asked again,
