Gospel text (Jn 3,14-21): Jesus said to Nicodemus: «As Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that whoever believes in him may have eternal life». Jesus said to Nicodemus: «As Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. 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 believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the Name of the only Son of God.

»This is how the Judgment is made: Light has come into the world and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For whoever does wrong hates the light and doesn't come to the light for fear that his deeds will be shown as evil. But whoever lives according to the truth comes into the light so that it can be clearly seen that his works have been done in God».

Today, we attend a high level dialogue. Nicodemus is a good teacher of the Law: without prejudices, humble, receptive! Christ announces “incomprehensibly” how He will save the world: “lifted up”. Did Nicodemus understand? At least, he listened carefully. This is what Christianity is about: to listen to the voice of God and to accept His will.

- Nicodemus understood this later. There, in the Calvary, at the foot of the Cross was Nicodemus to receive and bury the Body of the Lord. There he met the Virgin Mary!
