Jn 14: 1-6

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.

And you know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Learning how to follow Jesus

The Gospel’s call not to let your hearts be troubled is not only for the early disciples, but for us today. We often are troubled by what happens in our world, yet Jesus’ reassurance is that there is a way through these troubles.

He calls himself the way, the truth, and the life. Elsewhere in Scripture he promises an Advocate to help us follow him in our day and circumstances and in the way he taught, preached, healed, and loved us. Like Thomas, however, we may be perplexed as to how to follow Jesus and where that will lead us.

Pray for an open – not a troubled – heart, mind, and soul so you can be attentive and not worried as to how and where Jesus is leading you in your daily life. Trust that the Holy Spirit – the Advocate Jesus promised – can be called upon to help.

Prayer

May it please the supreme and divine Goodness
to give us all abundant grace
ever to know his most holy will
and perfectly to fulfill it.

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
