John 14:1-6 Gospel Reflection: "I am going now to prepare a place for you." One of the things that baffles me in life is why Catholics run after all these eastern mystical religions when the teaching and scriptures of our own church are so beautiful. Here we have the Lord telling his followers that he is going ahead of us to prepare a place in heaven for us. There is something very touching and personal in such a statement.
Later Jesus tells us that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life, so when we want to know the way to heaven we have only to look to Jesus. When we want to know the truth we can wait until we meet Jesus and we shall know all truth and when we ask ourselves what life is about we can say that Jesus is Life.
