John 6, 37-40

by Fr. Luis A. Zazano

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 6, 37-40

Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.’

You who are blessed by my Father

The Church. As you know there are three states of the Church: Triumphant, Penitent, and Militant.

1) The Triumphant Church refers to what we celebrated yesterday, those who enjoy the presence of God and are souls that rejoice in Heaven. They are in glory, contemplating God.

2) The Penitent Church is what we celebrate today. We pray for those who are purging their sins and need our prayers and mass in order to receive help to be purified and be able to contemplate God in Heaven. If you visit the cemetery today you earn indulgences, and we help the souls in Purgatory.

3) In the Militant Church in which you and I walk: we are pilgrims on earth. What you do on Earth has divine impact or resonance. What is important is to be a good person and fight to reach our goal, not harming anyone and not complicating other people’s life. Selfishness and pride are two aspects that complicate life significantly. It is up to you to have a generous and open heart to see everything that surrounds you. Life is short, but it is also a privilege to live it. It is more plentiful if we help others, so keep on doing good deeds daily, even though you might believe that bad people have it better. Let your life be an accomplishment everyone can be proud of, loving God and doing your best every day.

May God Almighty bless you in the name of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. Amen. And remember Heaven is our goal!
