I will be with you only a little while longer

„My children, I will be with you only a little while longer. You will look for me, and as I told the Jews, ‘Where I go you cannot come,’ so now I say it to you.” (JN 13: 33)

We are witnessing the last days of Our Lord. Every day the readings remind us of how close we are to the moment when He will die for us and our salvation, timing every moment of His life: „six days before Passover,” „On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread,” „Before the feast of Passover” and so on. We are invited to stay with Him, to participate in His very last moments, knowing that He „will be with us only a little while longer.” We can answer to His appeal just by being with Him.

„Hail to you, our King, obedient to the Father; you were led to your crucifixion like a gentle lamb to the slaughter.” (Gospel Acclamation)
