FAITH BOOK
7th SUNDAY OF EASTER (A) May 24, 2020
 Acts 1: 12-14; Psalm 27; I Peter 4: 13-16; John 17: 1-11

Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:


Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said

“Father the hour has come. Give glory to your son

So that your son may glorify you....”

 

Reflection:


What can be so “glorious” about the death of this good man Jesus?  What is there to stand up and cheer about?  Maybe because in his death people will see how much he trusted God.  He remained faithful even through his pain and death.  That’s something to cheer about. Glory to God!

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • How would you describe the “glory of God?”
  • Does that glory show itself frequently in our world? 
  • Can you give a few examples?
