Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

What other people should see

For many people in today’s world, it’s all about THEM.

For Christ, it is all about the Father.

In today’s Gospel (John 14:6-14), our Lord says,

Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.
How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
Do you not believe
that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?

The words that I speak to you
I do not speak on my own.
The Father who dwells in me
is doing his works.

We, of course, must imitate Christ.

In the way we live our lives, in the way we speak, and in what we say and do, our goal must be for people to see not us, but GOD dwelling in us and doing His works.
