You are currently viewing The Father

The Father is himself within the circle of love. They pray in Jesus’ name, but instead of waiting on the threshold for Him to intervene, they enter and look into the Father’s eyes; faith and love are all they need.

-Fuller, Rev. Reginald C., A New Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture, 1969 Thomas Nelson Publishers, p. 1066.

Gospel

Jn 16:23b-28

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Amen, amen, I say to you,
whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.
Until now you have not asked anything in my name;
ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.

“I have told you this in figures of speech.
The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures
but I will tell you clearly about the Father.
On that day you will ask in my name,
and I do not tell you that I will ask the Father for you.
For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me
and have come to believe that I came from God.
I came from the Father and have come into the world.
Now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”
