My Reflection for May 9 Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter: John 16:16-20

My Reflection:
For some life is quite simple: we eat, sleep, work and do our daily ordinary routines. But for some life is mysterious also, we live today but we will not know what may happen next. This is life, very simple yet mysterious also.    

The disciples in our gospel for today were not able to comprehend this cryptic statement of Jesus: “A little while and you will no longer see me, and again a little while later and you will see me.” Perhaps even if we were present during that time we would also fail to understand the deeper meaning of Jesus statement.

As you continue with your earthly journey there will be events in your life that will be very hard for you to understand. You may reach a point to contemplatively ask God, why is this happening to me?

Nonetheless, we must continue to believe that there’s a God who is in-charge. And we must continue to trust that things happen for a deeper reason that only God knows. …
