ONE WAY – JESUS!
Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” – John 14:6
P S A L M
R: You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.
G O S P E L
There is no other person in the history of the world who can use the words of Jesus in today’s Gospel passage and still be telling the truth. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life – He is the one and only Mediator between God and humanity; all who will be saved are saved through His life, death and resurrection. Let us all pray that we will heed all that He has to say to us because we can be sure that every word and direction He has for our lives is for our own good.

CONSOLATION IN TROUBLED TIMES
Nearly everybody I meet complains about the bad times we are living in. Times are experienced as bad because of the worsening economic and political situation, because of the many catastrophes we hear about; times are bad because of the news of wars and terror attacks which reach us nearly daily. All this is true but I often wonder whether there were ever times without trouble. Reading the Old Testament, we discover that the Jews faced one big problem after the other. Opening the New Testament, there is Jesus speaking to people who are oppressed and feel very much troubled. The Acts of the Apostles and Letters of St. Paul reflect very troubled times. And when we look into history books, I ask you, is there a time of total peace and harmony? No, paradise is not part of this world. The poison of sin has caused trouble from the beginning of the human race and will continue to plague humanity until the end. The battle between good and evil continues in the world, in our societies, even in our individual hearts.
