Sts. Philip and James, Apostles
1 Cor 15:1– 8 / Jn 14:6 – 14
St. Philip, Apostle, from Bethsaida, among the first disciples of Christ, was crucified in Hierapolis in Phrygia, now Turkey. Apostle St. James, called the Less, was Bishop of Jerusalem and wrote an Epistle. He was martyred in Jerusalem.
From the 1st Reading: 1 Cor 15:1 – 5
Let me remind you, brothers and sisters, of the Good News that I preached to you and which you received and on which you stand firm. By that Gospel you are saved, provided that you hold to it as I preached it otherwise, you will have believed in vain.
In the first place, I have passed on to you what I myself received: that Christ died for our sins, as Scripture says; that he was buried; that he was raised on the third day, according to the Scriptures; that he appeared to Cephas and then to the Twelve.
Gospel Reading: Jn 14:6 - 14
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me. If you know me, you will know the Father also; indeed you know him and you have seen him."
Philip asked him, "Lord, show us the Father and that is enough." Jesus said to him, "What! I have been with you so long and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever sees me sees 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?
"All that I say to you, I do not say of myself. The Father who dwells in me is doing his own work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; at least believe it on the evidence of these works that I do.
"Truly, I say to you, the one who believes in me will do the same works that I do; and he will even do greater than these, for I am going to the Father. Everything you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. And everything you ask in calling upon my Name, I will do."
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He became human so He could personally lead us to the Father through His teachings and through His miracles, and ultimately, through death on the Cross. His words are the Truth of the power and magnificence of God. His actions, indeed, the very Life He lived and sacrificed, are proof of God's unconditional love for us. ?By believing and following Jesus, we become closer to God the Father. Living by the examples of Christ, we reflect God's image and God's goodness to others. We continue the work of Christ on earth, that the Father may be glorified.
