In today’s Gospel reading from John 14, Jesus says, “And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”
We know that Jesus is God. And that God can do whatever God wants to do. So Jesus can reveal Himself to anyone, even those who hate Him. Take a look at Saul of Tarsus. He was a persecutor of Jesus, yet Jesus revealed Himself to him and he became the great Apostle to the Gentiles.
Take another look at what Jesus said in today’s reading. If you love Jesus, He will reveal Himself to you. I hope you’ve found that Jesus has revealed Himself to you in many different ways. In the Eucharist, chiefly. But we find Jesus in the Word, in the poor, in people and situations that He sends to us all the time. Our eyes and hearts and minds must be open to those revelations. When they are, I believe we’ll see Him more and more.
Father, we thank you for Jesus revealing Himself to us. May we be open to new revelations of His presence always. Amen.
