Today's Gospel + image + catechesis

Tuesday of the Second Week of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 3,7-15): «No one has ever gone up to heaven except the one who came from heaven, the Son of Man». Jesus said to Nicodemus, «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». Nicodemus asked again, «How can this be?». And Jesus answered, «You are a teacher in Israel, and you don't know these things! Truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and we witness to the things we have seen, but you don't accept our testimony. If you don't believe when I speak of earthly things, what then, when I speak to you of heavenly things? No one has ever gone up to heaven except the one who came from heaven, the Son of Man. 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».

Today the dialogue between Jesus and Nicodemus continues. Jesus speaks about his “Holy Family”: the Holy Spirit and the Father. To understand Jesus it is needed to trust His words. Because no one has seen the Father and the Holy Spirit, but the son who lives eternally in Heaven and has come down to Earth to save us by the sacrifice of the cross.
