INTIMACY LEADS TO TRUST!

All through His life, Jesus had one human person who shared with Him a very similar intimacy he had with His Father. And, of course, that was His mother, Mary. A closeness with His disciples began growing when they returned from their first mission trip. Why? Because they took to heart what Jesus shared with them so much that other people benefited from their words and prayers.

No longer will God His Father be understood by human beings as a remote celestial being who is unapproachable. Through His divine Son, we can know our Heavenly Father as someone who involves Himself in our everyday joys and sorrows. We heard in today’s Gospel that Jesus shared his happiness with His Father, and he shared with His Father the deep sorrow He had for us before He went to the Cross.

Just as the disciples were blessed to see and hear what they heard, we are blessed because we can share in this same intimacy that Jesus has. This intimacy leads to extraordinary trust in Jesus in good times and challenging times. He wants us to know there’s nothing we cannot bring to the Father through Him.

Gospel Challenge:
Let us become vulnerable to Jesus and hold nothing back. Let us never be afraid to be too intimate with God. Trust always follows intimacy.

IGNITE THE FIRE!
Please join me in praying for all baptized Catholics to be faithful to Jesus in the Holy Mass every weekend. Hail Mary, full of grace…

Peace be with you.
