Jesus Describes God The Father

Extract

Questions: Who, What, Why...

When Jesus was asked by Philip and the other disciples to show them God the Father. He said, “If you have known me, you will know my Father too” (John 14:7a) and, “The person who has seen me has seen the Father”. (John 14:9b)

Thought

Isn’t it good that Philip and others asked Jesus these questions; just for our greater understanding?

The Holy Trinity, three divine persons in one God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, is the pillar of our faith.

Reflection

Lord Jesus, it is through you that we come to know your Father. May your heavenly light shine on us and those seeking to understand the truth.

Prayer: Priests and Religious

St Paul, great convert and Apostle,
guide all priests and religious.
Help them realise that their actions
speak louder than any words.
Teach them to use their talents
to convey God’s message
but, to rely above all,
on the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
