A little while

May 30, 2019 6:00 am

“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘A little while and you will no longer see me, and again a “little while later and you will see me.’” (JN 16: 16)

Our Lord announced to them that He would die, but in “a little while” his disciples would see Him again after the resurrection. We also have moments of “a little while” when we feel strong, connected with Our Lord, following His teaching and in a good relationship with Him, but also we have moments when we feel like God disappeared, forgot about us and left us totally alone; we feel like “orphans.” In moments like these, we should remember that He loves us and He knows perfectly why we need these “a little while” moments; He promised that our “hearts will rejoice.”

“I will not leave you orphans, says the Lord; I will come back to you, and your hearts will rejoice.” (Gospel Acclamation)
