Gospel Reflections by Deacon Tom

The Seventh Sunday of Easter

I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do. Now glorify me, Father, with you, with the glory that I had with you before the world began. John 17: 4-5

Jesus gave glory to God through all that He said and did here on earth. We share in that glory! What’s more, we benefit from and live off the riches of God’s glorious power as He guards, nurtures and protects the Church at all times. We participate in ongoing relationship and encounter with Jesus. We understand Him more and more to the point where we know Him and understand that He is the source of our lives and loves us like no other. This leads us to worship Him and testify to others about Him.
