Gospel: John 17:20-26
"I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them."
(cf. Jn 17:26)
Jesus always speak to us about God the Father and in today’s Gospel, he prays so that we may know Him – so that his love may be in us.
How much do we know about God the Father? Do we acknowledge his presence in our lives? Do we feel his love?
As Jesus calls us brothers and sisters, he also made us know about the Father. He even taught us how to pray to our Father.
Jesus’ prayer in today’s Gospel inspires us to deepen our relationship with the Father. Pray more to Him, acknowledge and accept one another as brothers and sisters so that we would live in love as a family.
