Amen, amen, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My Name, He will give it to you … Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.  – Jn 16:23-24

Reflection. The life of Jesus teaches us that God is like a loving human father.  God understood our limitations so “He gave His only begotten Son” to light our path.  We recognize Jesus as a loving person, Who cares about us.

Prayer. Dear Father in heaven, Jesus has given us the words of life.  Help me to take hold of them and make them my own.  I ask for the gift of joy.  Thank You for keeping me ever by Your side.
