Today's Gospel + image + catechesis

Friday of the Fourth Week of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 14:1-6): «I am the way (...). No one comes to the Father except through me». Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where I am going you know the way.” Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except 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.
