In his video reflection, Ben Akers reminds us that at the last supper the apostles felt lost and confused as they digested the news from Jesus who told them that he had been betrayed and would be departing soon.

The apostle Thomas asked Jesus, “how can we know the way?” Jesus tells his disciples that he is the Way, the Truth and the Life. That is still true today as we face a world filled with darkness from a loss of truth and a transactional culture that devalues human dignity.

Yet today we often wonder, how can we know Jesus? We know him studying by praying and by participating in the sacramental life of the church. Early Christians were called The Way. Our challenge today is to continue to witness to Jesus by our lives, words and actions.

Reflection:

Ask Jesus to show you what it means that he is the Life. Do you seek fullness of life in Jesus or in other things or people of this world?
