Today's Gospel + image + catechesis

Saturday of the Fourth Week of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 14,7-14): «I am in the Father and the Father is in me». Jesus said to his disciples: «If you know me, you will know the Father also; indeed you know him and you have seen him». Philip asked him, «Lord, show us the Father and that is enough». Jesus said to him, «What! I have been with you so long and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever sees me sees the Father; how can you say: ‘Show us the Father?’ Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? All that I say to you, I do not say of myself. The Father who dwells in me is doing his own work.

»Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; at least believe it on the evidence of these works that I do. Truly, I say to you, the one who believes in me will do the same works that I do; and he will even do greater than these, for I am going to the Father. Everything you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. And everything you ask in calling upon my Name, I will do».

Today, Jesus is saying goodbye to the Apostles. He tells them openly that He is God: “Who has seen me, has seen my father.” ¡Jesus of Nazareth is God!, and with Him we enter to a familiar life of the Holy Trinity: the life of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

- Jesus tells us: “Believe me. At least believe me for my deeds.” Jesus has made big things that no one has done before: most important his resurrection. Jesus, I trust you!
