I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord;
no one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
Jesus is the way, the channel of radical forgiveness and mercy. He is the truth which sets us free; we are His people and He is our God. Jesus is the fullness of life; He gives us his Body and Blood for the journey, lifting us up in loving mercy to eternal life.
Jesus came to teach us about forgiveness and love. A love stronger than death. A merciful love expressed in the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We go to the Father by dying to self and living for God alone. Our God is a God of forgiveness and hospitality, a companion on the journey here on earth and in heaven.
