(St. Justin, Martyr)
Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. . . . The hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures but I will tell you clearly about the Father. On that day you will ask in my name, and I do not tell you that I will ask the Father for you. For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have come to believe that I came from God.” Jn_16:23b-28
Notice, beloved, that Jesus didn’t say to pray to me so that I can ask the Father. He said, ASK the Father directly in my name. Our belief in Jesus will be enough for the Father, for He knows that we love and believe in Jesus and He loves us as much! What an awesome gift Jesus has given us. If we only believed, fully believed! ASK!
