05-26-20 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

May 26, 2020
(St. Philip Neri, Priest)
Jesus prayed to His Father for His disciples, saying, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for the ones you have given me, because they are yours, and everything of mine is yours and everything of yours is mine, and I have been glorified in them.
And now I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, while I am coming to you.”   Jn_17:1-11a

This was the farewell discourse of Jesus in John’s Gospel.  Following the Last Supper, Jesus, in the presence of His Apostles, was showing them how to pray.  And that prayer was for them.  He had completed His mission and was now placing Himself in the hands of the “world.”  And that world was a nasty place, just as it often is today.  As His disciples, we too have to deal with that nasty world. But we know that He is here to support us, to pray for us and to love us, unconditionally, just as He did for His Apostles.  THAT is the balm that soothes our journey.  And that is the promise that brings us HOPE.
