April 22, 2016: Friday, Fourth Week of Easter

 I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord;
no one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14: 6)

            Jesus is the way, the channel of radical forgiveness and mercy. He is the truth which sets us free; we are his people, and he is our God. Jesus is the fullness of life; he gives us his Body and Blood for the journey, lifting us up in loving mercy to eternal life.

            Jesus came to teach us about forgiveness and love. A love stronger than death. A merciful love expressed in the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We go to the Father by dying to self and living for God alone. Our God is a God of forgiveness and hospitality, a companion on the journey here on earth and in heaven.
