Today's Gospel + image + catechesis

Monday 2nd of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 3,1-8): «No one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again from above». Among the Pharisees there was a ruler of the Jews named Nicodemus. He came to Jesus by night and said, «Rabbi, we know that you have come from God to teach us, for no one can perform miraculous signs like yours unless God is with him». Jesus replied, «Truly, I say to you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again from above».

Nicodemus said, «How can there be rebirth for a grown man? Who could go back to his mother's womb and be born again?». Jesus replied, «Truly, I say to you: No one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Because of this, 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».

Today, a wise elder among the Jews talks with Jesus. Nicodemus admires Jesus and tells Him: - You come from God because you do miracles.

- To believe in God is not enough to see miracles. Jesus tells Nicodemus that we shall reborn, pray and be “small” like children to hear God´s voice.
