Liturgical day: Wednesday 4th of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 12,44-50): «Whoever sees me, sees him who sent me». Jesus declared publicly: «Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me, sees him who sent me. I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I am not the one to condemn him; for I have come, not to condemn the world, but to save the world. The one who rejects me, and does not receive my word, already has a judge: the very word I have spoken will condemn him on the last day. For I have not spoken on my own authority; the Father who sent me has instructed me in what to say and how to speak. I know that his commandment is eternal life, and that is why the message I give, I give as the Father instructed me».

Today, Jesus introduces us in the intimacy of the Holy Trinity. God is not a lonely being; He is since always as a family, a community of persons in the same life: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Father has sent his eternal Son to earth to cure humanity that has been weakened by sin. The son made man is Jesus of Nazareth: He comes from the Father!

- Who believes in Jesus believes in the Father. Thank you, Jesus for you have told me that God is my Father in Heaven.
