Liturgical day: Friday 4th of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 14,1-6): «I am the way (...). No one comes to the Father but through me». Jesus said to his disciples, «Do not be troubled; trust in God and trust in me. In my Father's house there are many rooms. Otherwise I would not have told you that I go to prepare a place for you. After I have gone and prepared a place for you, I shall come again and take you to me, so that where I am, you also may be. Yet you know the way where I am going». Thomas said to him, «Lord, we don't know where you are going; how can we know the way?». Jesus said, «I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me».

Today, Jesus soothes us. Why are we scared? The Lord gave his life for us, resuscitated and ascended into Heaven. In the house of the Father - Jesus tells us- there is a lot of space: He is preparing us for a place filled with love, forever. And later, He will take us with Him.

- “Jesus we do not know where you are going.” said Thomas, the Apostle. We cannot say that! Jesus goes to the Father´s house. In order to get there and remain there we only have to follow Jesus example.
