1 Peter 2:4-9
John 14:1-12

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life"

Jesus is the Way to the Father because He and the Father are One. We enter and remain One with He who is the Way, through the prayerful and sacramental joining of our wills, as He leads, guides, and takes us through Himself to the Father.

Jesus is the Truth and testifies, "...the Father who dwells in me is doing His works." He encourages us, "You will do greater works than these because I am going to the Father." Jesus reminds us as we remain in union with Him, we too will do the works of the One who dwells in us. These 'works' are the work of bringing souls to eternal Life in the fullness of Truth Who is the Way to the Father.

Jesus is the Life. He and the Father share the work of creating our temporal and mortal life so that we may freely choose to remain with them eternally. They are the source and the communion of all who would will to be eternally One. It is through Jesus, our Way that we are restored to eternal Life with God. Our sins that separate us from God are remitted by Jesus' perfect sacrificial offering to the Father. Apart from Jesus, Who is the 'place,' for us to remain one in God, we have no Life.

O Lord, help us to see that You are truly the Way for us to live eternally with You and the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen

- Mary Williams
