Liturgical day: Friday 3rd of Advent

Gospel text (Jn 5,33-36): Jesus said to the Jews, «John also bore witness to the truth when you sent messengers to him». Jesus said to the Jews, «John also bore witness to the truth when you sent messengers to him, but I do not seek such human testimony; I recall this for you, so that you may be saved. John was a burning and shining lamp, and for a while you were willing to enjoy his light. But I have greater evidence than that of John: the works which the Father entrusted to me to carry out. The very works I do bear witness: the Father has sent me».

Today Jesus, by answering to the Jews, asks us to trust those who speak of God. They are your parents, your grandparents, and the parish priest of your church... Maybe even a friend! God speaks to you through them. But above all they are the same deeds of the Father that show us that Jesus is God-Son.

-After 2,000 years, the Church, is still preaching the birth of Jesus Christ, and His death and resurrection. Time is meaningless for Jesus! Is not it awesome?
