I will not leave you orphans

“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you.” (JN 14: 18-20)

God’s promise: “I will not leave you orphans.” Our Lord knows perfectly, that our nature, created by God, lies in relationship, we are created to be united, to live together with others. This is the reason why “it is not good to be alone”—the first man experience. We are growing when we are in a relationship when we can be united and important for somebody. This is why Our Lord promised: “I will come to you.” Whatever could happen to us, we are always in God’s heart, we are always important to Him.

“Whoever loves me will keep my word, says the Lord, and my Father will love him and we will come to him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
