My Gospel Reflections for June 7 Tuesday of the Seventh Week of Easter: John 17:1-11

My Reflections:
Jesus said: I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do. It was mission accomplished for Jesus. In doing his mission there were also instances wherein he stopped for a while and reflected on the sufferings that he will have to go through but in spite of it all he still went through it.

How can we glorify God while we are in this world? It’s very simple: we must follow the way of Jesus. His way of sacrificial love, His way of Humility, His way of self-emptying and self-giving. Jesus was dutiful to the Father’s will; He never questioned God as to why He must pass through suffering. He simply followed the will of God for Him.

As Christians/Catholics we also have our own mission in the Lord’s vineyard. We need to share and live the good news about Jesus.
