Gospel: Jn 8:51-59
I know Him And I Keep His Word
If you have been following this week's readings, it'll be easy for you to guess what the trend is: #conflict. Such a conflict around the identity of Jesus, that today it arises to the point of wanting to stone him to death!
But Jesus cannot take a step back. His whole life and his identity are defined by his relationship with the Father, and he will not compromise this even at the cost of his own life.
In front of a world in which everything is relative or “fluid”--political opinions, ideologies, values--Jesus continues to challenge us to witness to the truth. Let us not deny who we are; let us stand for love and life knowing that whoever keeps his word will never see death.
