In and through Jesus, our Father invites us to draw near. As we respond, we encounter the Father as He holds the Cross of Jesus in His arms, supporting and embracing His Son. We hear the Father's voice as He gives us a task, just as we see in today's Holy Gospel. What is the Father asking of us?

In today's Holy Gospel, John 3:16, we can hear a very personal invitation of Jesus to draw near to Him so that He may speak to us one on one, heart to heart. Our response to this conversation with Jesus is very revealing!

What our Lord asks of us in today's Gospel is both challenging and difficult. It goes against the grain and stands in contrast to the way many of us were raised.When someone hurt or offends us, our gut reaction is to write them off, to "x" them out of our lives. Jesus challenges us to take another approach!

Jesus reveals to us that the Cross is the only way to Eternal Happiness. Our fear or aversion to the Cross is among the greatest obstacles to our growth in holiness.
