Gospel: Jn 13:21-33, 36-38
Stay and Wait Constantly
As we come near to the passion of Jesus, we see how people at that time follow and observe what Jesus do and says, the followers of Jesus who were with him in this journey.
In today’s gospel, Jesus revealed that one of his disciples will betray him and that is Judas Iscariot. After Judas Iscariot left the table, Jesus prophesied and told the others, “My children, I will be with you only a little while longer. You will look for me, and as I told the Jews; Where I go you cannot come, so now I say it to you.
Now, we are invited to stay and wait constantly for the coming of Jesus. Even if His death is coming to its near, we are called to stay and be with Him, in his presence, and to carry in our hearts his spirit. Hardships and trials may come but Jesus is always there in our lives inspiring, motivating and giving us hope. Let us pray how we can remain with Jesus presence despite all the temptations and worries that fill our hearts right now.
