Jesus Reveals Himself To Us

13 July 2011

Today’s Readings: Ex 3:1-6, 9-12 / Mt 11:25-27

REFLECTION
Jesus’ intimacy with the Father is highlighted in the many occasions when he gave himself to prayer. It’s a short prayer prompted by the most recent events; events and daily life. This prayer teaches us an important lessons: the conditions for Christian discipleship are humility of heart and openness to God. Proud, over rational and self-sufficient people are not well disposed to be enlightened by Jesus’ revelation.

Today’s Gospel tells us that Jesus is the Son who knows the Father as the Father knows him. Being God himself, he can demand everything of us, because he does not come to us from outside but his influence reaches the depths of our heart. It is Jesus who reveals the Father to us and knowing him in truth we also share in his control over events.

Our desires and our prayers are powerful because we have come to the center from which God directs us. God has revealed himself to the little ones and show himself-that his Son Jesus may be revealed to us.

PRAYER
Loving Father, we praise and thank you for sending your Son Jesus to us, for revealing yourself to us in the person of your Son.

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Who We Are

Communication Foundation for Asia is a pioneer in development communication. It was established in 1968 as a non-stock, non-profit organization, but its origins go way back to 1960, when the Social Communications Center was born with the publication of the Philippine Catholic Digest. Both organizations were founded by the Dutch missionary, Fr Cornelio Lagerwey, MSC, in collaboration with his mission partner Genaro V. Ong.
